Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2003 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 012009

Grand Caravan 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 83,000 miles


The engine gave off a whining noise. Using this site I read it might be a problem related to the power steering. When I brought it to a garage they said a bearing in my alternator was causing the problem. (the alternator was providing the right level of volts). Decided to get a second opinion and brought it to a garage next to my place of work. He immediately located the problem as being the Idle pulley. It is just above the alternator. He was right on the money as the noise completely stopped once he installed a new pulley.
