Question about 2005 Chrysler Town & Country

2 Answers

Why won't my 2005 T&C start, but will try to turn on and will switch gears?

It has run fine since we got it. Its on a quarter tank of gas. It started fine, went to back up and the engine shut off. No sound just stopped. Now it makes the starting sound but doesnt sound like its catching. Its just not going. But I can still put it in reverse.

Do you hear the fuel pump running? Do you still have spark? Did any trouble codes appear. I'm pretty sure that it should still be able to shift gears with key on and brake pedal depressed. You can get the trouble codes by turning ignition switch on and off three times. The third time you turn it on, leave it on and watch for codes to appear in the odometer display. I hope this helps.

Have the OBD codes read as will pinpoint the faulty sensor/switch save time and monet searching blind, i'd guess at fuel pump relay but need the OBD code to be sure

Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again

SOURCE: Car acts like its in neutral when I put it into drive or reverse.

assuming you have checked the trans oil and it is full, it sounds like you need to take it to a good trans shop and have it looked at. it could be something simple or something major and expensive

SOURCE: Why won't my car stay running after it ran out of gas

Most newer cars are very sensitive to being ran low on gas. The fuel pump is in the tank and relies on fuel to cool it down. Your fuel pump is now probably not pumping the required pressure for the fuel injection system to work properly (or at all).

When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

Truck dies, acts like it is getting to much fuel, used a quarter tank of gas in 8 miles


Clogged Gas Filter

Worn out & Blocked Exhaust Converter

Bad Ground at Fuel Pump

The different gas gauge readings would indicate a ground
issue with the sending unit in the fuel tank & possibly the
fuel pump shares the same ground or it is worn out.

I would check fuel pressure with a gauge & the fuel may be
there, but not enough volume

A fuel pump can last 4 years or 18 years

MY 2004 SANTA FE WILL NOT START IF GAS LEVEL IS A QUARTER TANK OR LOWER AND ALSO WHEN I FILL UP WITH GAS. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT DOES NOT COME ON! SO NO ONE CAN TELL ME WHAT MIGHT BE WRONG. ONCE IT SITS...


The Check Engine Light does not have to come on for someone to find out what is wrong. A shop may have to have the car for a few days so they can run some tests on your fuel and ignition systems. They will most likely have to drive the car/run the engine to duplicate the symptom so they can catch it while it is malfunctioning. Intermittent problems can be very elusive, but they can be diagnosed with a little patience. The level of your fuel gauge most likely has nothing to do with your starting problem.
