Notes: Engine cradle rot is a serious problem in the 2004-05 Chrysler Pacifica. Chrysler admits they didn't apply enough coating to the vehicle's sub-frame during assembly, but only offered to cover a very small portion of the vehicles they messed up.

So what happens when your engine cradle rots? Well, the engine could fall out for starters. It could also cause problems with the suspension and other components but did I mention THE ENGINE CAN FALL OUT? The worst part is you might not know because there's no way to see the problem without getting under the car.

If you have a 2004-05 Pacifica, make sure to have your mechanic inspect your sub-frame for rust and corrosion.

I purchased a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica in Feb 2005 and it was used with 25,000 mi I had only had the car 10 months when I went to crank it one morning and it would not start unless I gave it gas or pumped it before I tried to crank it. If I let it sit over night or for a couple of hours it would not crank unless I pumped the gas took to dealer said I had to pay for repairs B/C I had no warranty B/C I had hit my 36,000 mi so a friend at another dealerships ran a diagnostic for me and it was at that time my map sensor still have not gotten it repaired and the dealership is and will not help.
