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.

While checking the air pressure on a customer's Chrysler Pacifica the air valve on the TPMS sensor became stuck in the open position resulting in the loss of all air pressure. The TPMS sensor and valve had to be replaced. This claim is being filed on behalf of one of our customers at oil changer, Inc.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,000 miles
Poping noises at front end on driver and passenger sides, while turning at slow speeds going forward and backing up. Also filled up gas tank, "mileage/guage till empty" was 344, drove one mile and it went to 243. It is currently in the shop again, they are waiting on a part "shaft" to replace it. They usually don't have old parts available because it is still under warranty.
