the problem started on 6-8-03. my van would be going down the highway and act as if it lost all power, was losing speed, engine started like it was pulling-jerking. it would start running rough then just shut off. I could get it to start but couldn't get it to stay. Once I could get it to stay started I couldn't get any power other than what seemed like 1st gear. As I tried over and over to start it, it seemed as if it was flooding. I had the car to towed to the shop. They had it for 1 week and replaced something that was a recall item. what was the item, I have no clue. within 1 week it was back in the shop again for the same reason. This time they played it off as bad gas due to they couldn't find anything wrong after having it once again for 4 days. Within 1 week it did it again, this time I took it to another shop. They found that the oil was low, transmittion fluid was low and leaking from gasket, and that a sensor (sensor D) wasn't working and it was replaced. I got the car back 4 days later. And it was back in the shop 4 days later for once again the same problem. After having the car from a Tues until the following Thurs they still hadn't found anything wrong with the car. So one Thrus one of the techs got a bright idea and decided to drive the car just as I was with a gauge attached to the car and what happened the car did what it had been doing to me since 6-8 and it was now 7-24 and they finally figured out that my fuel pump was going bad. So it was replaced and it's been fine since but 7-31 I had to take it back in due to an electrical problem. I had nothing registering on my dash area. I couldn't tell what my speed was, what the temp was, how much gas i had, and with radio didn't work. All I did have was the rpm tack working. I have spent over $1200.00 trying to get someone to fix this one problem. Yes I had purchased a warranty when I purchased this car Nov 29, 2002. and thank god or I would have paid out over $4000.00 I want you to know that I took this van to a Chrysler dealership service dept to get this problem fixed and it took them 2 tries and over 3 weeks in their shop, which left me out of a car for the entire time. This car is only 6 years old and since I purchased it starting April 9, 2003 I have had it in the shop 4+ times. First it was the radiator. It was replaced but even after the warranty I still paid over $300.00 to get it out of the shop, then back in for hoses to be replaced on the radiator that weren't done when the radiator was installed-$136.00 out of pocket, then the 1st time i had the problem with the fuel pump. What the shop did was computer analysis, transmission work, oil change and a tuneup $426.20, then in the shop again 7-8 until 7-11 which is when they replaced the sensor and did some transmission work, and a couple other things but didn't fix the original problem. it went in there for amount $536.00, then the next time they finally fixed the problem by replacing the fuel pump but I still was out of pocket $69.17 for things that my warranty company didn't cover. I think this is a little ridiculous. I really don't think that this car is old enough to have all these problems come up all at once. The mileage started at 95764 and as of today it's at 100747 that's right at 5000 miles in the last 3.5 months. What do you think about all this? When I purchased the car in Nov 2002 the mileage was only 88747. I've put on only 12000 miles since I bought the car this just seems alittle crazy to me expecially since I'm a single parent with an annual income of $26000. I wish that there was a lemon law on used cars. Not that it would be like a new purchase but I believe that there should be something that I could do under the circumstance.
