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.

problem #3

Grand Caravan SXT 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,632 miles


At first we thought it was the power steering pump, then we thought it was something caught in the fan. When you start the car there is a loud noise that sounds like something hitting metal. When you put it into drive, it quietens down. Now the engine light is flashing. I'm worried. What could it be? The engine runs smoothly when you increase RPMS. It chugs in Park. Could it be the rack and pinion? It was leaking when we had a brake repair but we couldn't afford to have it repaired.

Had this looked at when under warranty and dealer could find no problem. Now that it is out of warranty, bet the problem is real easy to find. Just annoying now and hopefully it is only a noise....

The car is under warranty but when I take the car back to the Dodge dealer they can't hear the problem and it sounds mad to expect them to drive 50 plus miles down the freeway to hear it. I've looked on the web and people have had similar problems and say it's a defective oil pump. How do I get the dealer to sort it out before the warranty finishes??
