Question about 2000 Chrysler Town & Country

3 Answers

I have a 1999 Chrysler town & country that hesitates and vibrates under load. Really noticeable when pulling away from a stop.Also noticeable when backing up steep hills.Without a load (nuetral) it runs fine Fuel pressure is 50psi and ignition module, plug wires and plugs have been changed. 200,000 miles. transmission was rebuilt 6 months ago. Transmissioh shop says problem is in engine. Engine uses a quart of oil every 2000 miles. Any ideas? Thanks Chuck

I think that you should be seeing the check engine light on--go to Autozone or similar business that offers free use of their scanner and use it to see if any trouble codes come up. Try using 'high mileage' oil if you are not using it already to slow down the oil consumption. At 200K miles, that usage is hardly reason for concern. You may be having trouble with O2 sensors or possibly plugged catalytic converter--the scan should point out any of those possibilities. Hope some of this helps!

Do u have a check engine light blinking? has the electronic engine control system been tested for fault code that might explain this? Kragen and Autozone parts stores and other do this for free, just ask for an OBD2 fault code test.
