If any oil gets on a halogen bulb (this includes oil from fingers when it is installed) the life of the bulb will be drastically shorter than an un-contaminated bulb. Just one possibility. A very likely possibility.

Right side low beam not working. High beam works


Is the filament inside the bulb broken?
If so, the low beam is burned out.

Try swapping with the left bulb (assuming it works ok) and see if the right side works correctly.

If so, replace the burned out bulb.

You have 2 elements in each of your headlamps and it sounds like the low beam element is burned out in each lamp. Replace the headlamps and you should be fine

My high beam lights work but my lo beam lights don't,can you help me


When you switch from High to Low beams, do the lights go out, or continue, in the "High" beam position??? If they go go, the transfer switch, that changes the high/low beam mode is working. The most likely problem, is that the Low Beam filaments are both burned out. Some, on original equipment, never changed, can burn out within days/weeks of each other. Could be that.

Low beam keeps burning out every 3 or 4 months


Get a lower temp light bulb. The hotter the temp, the shorter the life of the bulb. 3400K should be sufficient.

2006 Town & Country burning oil excessively. 40,000 miles; burning 1 quart every 1000 miles; no signs of the oil anywhere


At 40K miles it shouldn't burn that much oil, unless the motor has been abused or overheated. With no signs of oil leaks, the engine must be burning it via the exhaust,

Change the oil (use a good quality oil) and then observe oil consumption.

If it still uses excessive oil check further as below:-
1) if it blows blue smoke on steady accelleration (pistons or ring wear),
or
2) only blows blue smoke on initial accelleration after a period of steady coasting or de-celleration (faulty valve stem oil seals).

The mechanic should not change anything until tests have been performed and the component that is at fault found. sounds like a parts changer.
