2001 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 262002

Town & Country Limited 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,588 miles


Not long after it was purchased and continues till today, when the vehicle is started it will die. When it was cranked again it would die. Again and again this would be repeated until it would finally stay running. This does not happen all the time which is a major problem in itself because the mechanics could not solve something that does not seem to exist. I found the way to "SOMETIMES" help would be to lower or raise the steering wheel, depending on if it was in the up, or down position. My wife seemed to have some success if she would remove and re-insert the ignition key but this did not appear to work for me. When brought to a shop I would turn it off and it would re-crank and continue to run every time & this being the only vehicle we owned & starting a new business and using the vehicle in that business we could not leave it over a period of time. This has been an excellent vehicle overall since it was purchased but this always been a big problem with it. I now have well over 200,000 miles on it and the only work it needed so far was some grommets on the front end replaced, brake pads, power steering pump, & both window regulators.
