Question about 1999 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Transmission & Fan blower - 99 Chrysler T&C

Body { background: #FFFFFF; margin: 0px; padding: 4px; font-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; } p { margin:0px; padding:0px; } .spwrap { background: transparent url(../wysiwyg_rte/misspell.gif) repeat-x scroll center bottom; } I have several issues with this vehicle:
1) I bought a 1999 T&C used with 170,000 miles and have issues with the rebuilt transmission that has been in it since 135K miles. When I am slowing down to turn, or just slowing down behind someone and then speed up, the transmission will on occasion backshift rather violently. Sometimes this a machine gun sound that jerks the whole vehicle. It espcially hates slowing down and turning into an incline, like an expressway ramp. This only occurs between 25 and 40 MPH. It shifts up & down flawlessly above 40MPH. There are no error codes on the computer and the transmission shops can't reproduce it.
2) Something is restricting the air from the fan blower in the dash. I have to turn it on high to get anything out of the vents. Is this an easy fix?

I'm not a transmission expert so bear with me on that. From what I've read, your problem may be the solenoid pack on the transmission. It's odd that the computer shows no codes, but perhaps the shop can put a computer in the car to "catch" the codes when it occurs. Check the fluid if you haven't and make sure it isn't low. I'm on my 4th dodge/chrysler van and know all about how they won't act up for the technician.

As for the blower motor, your symptoms indicate that the resistor is out on the front blower. For kicks and giggles, check the rear blower if you have dual a/c to see if it blows on high, low and medium. I just replaced the rear resistor on my '03 T&C van and now I have all 3 blower speeds back. Part is about $20 - $25 and if you can get a Haynes manual, you can replace it yourself.

    I need to supplement my earlier response - to replace the resistor is not difficult. I don't have documentation on the 99 model but you should be able to find the electrical connector that goes to the blower and from there get to the resistor. A trip to the dealer and a bit of pleasantries might yield a look at the under dash schematics so you can find it if you don't have access to a Haynes guide, which have proven invaluable to me over the years.

You did not tell us what color of smoke you see when you start the engine. If its white smoke, you could have some injectors leaking or some of the glow plugs are beginning to go


If its blue smoke you could have problems with the valve seals leaking or even leaking from the turbo. If the turbo seals are leaking leaking into the down pipe, there would be a lot of very oily black sludge built up and if you looked into the turbine there was a lot of oil around the wheel as well. You can check your turbo for end play and even disconnect your down pipe and stick a finger inside to check for oily sludge. Black soot is normal, but it should be bone dry in there.


And of course black smoke can be a combination but most likely dirty air filter and air system.

I have a 1998 chevy lumina and the rear brake lights will not work. I have replaced the bulbs and fuse. the Light in the rear window works.


I fixed the same problem by using a few inches of rubber hose to fill the gap between the front of turn signal lever and the forward edge of the opening in the steering column shroud. The hose was sliced lengthwise to permit it to grip the shroud. The goal is to have the hose push against the lever with enough force to hold the lever back and still allow the lever to move in all necessary directions while being prevented from moving forward, which seems to cause the electrical malfunction. var viewReq = new Array();function vu(u) {var i=new Image();i.src=u.replace("&","&");viewReq.push(i);} vu("http://pubads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/adview?ai\x3dB9JIZ8BEpToq6LJbSjQTU2vz4A46foZQC7r3YkRbUk4e8FgAQARgBIAA4AVCAx-HEBGDJtsiGxKPIF4IBF2NhLXB1Yi0zMzg0OTQ2Mjg1MzUxOTU2oAHQlMDzA7IBDXd3dy5maXh5YS5jb226AQozMDB4MjUwX2FzyAEJ2gE_aHR0cDovL3d3dy5maXh5YS5jb20vY2Fycy90NDE1MTIyNS0xOTk4X2NoZXZ5X2x1bWluYV9yZWFyX2JyYWtlmALcC8ACBMgC9vHKCeACAOoCFDYxNTMvZml4Lm1vdG9ycy9jYXJzqAMB6ANZ6AOKAfUDAAAABOAEAYAGhIr79L6nnJQE\x26sigh\x3d5M1kvvT1_g0") body { background: #FFFFFF; margin: 0px; padding: 4px; font-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; } p { margin:0px; padding:0px; } .spwrap { background: transparent url(/wysiwyg_rte/misspell.gif) repeat-x scroll center bott adserver.bs?cn=bsr&flightid=2992119&page=&pluid=0&pos=1410p-64st3khshcvuk.gif?media=ad&p=tikr8aalhqokg2kwpx8tvns5rnfcb67z2iloww&r=253461340&rand=72052&labels=_qc.imp,_imp.adserver.rtb,_imp.rtbposition=0&rtbip=63.251.164.205&rtbdata2=eaaaekrpc2nvdw50vglyzv9rmy0xmsdudcivjdcu8h46p2h0dha6ly93d3cuzml4eweuy29tl2nhcnmvddqxnteymjutmtk5of9jagv2ev9sdw1pbmffcmvhcl9icmfrzvaawghms2wzylnnpwgbdyk2xj-aaf-ymtwlkagzsgugaqcoaf2bc7aba7obhunbrvnft01lnmg5yjv2qu90s2n6rm8ywunundoxwagg4wfiabipuiovjg
