Question about 2006 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Sounds like a flat tire...but the tire is not flat

Our town and country was parked on a hill, half on pavement, and half on grass, for a week. While it was parked there temperatures were extreme and upwards of 100 degrees. When we returned from vacation to drive the van, there was a "clunking" sound coming from the rear tire, and the "perform service" light comes on?

Hi there!

I think your trusty steed may have thrown a shoe!

Seriously, I think the lining on the rear (handbrake operated) pads may have attatched to the disks, and when released, preferred to stay stuck to the disk rather than it's backing.

This would cause the brake sensors to indicate a worn pad.

Either way, you need your rear brakes looked at soon.

Hope this solves your problem. If so , please take a moment to rate as Fixya!

What is the cause of a flat spot while driving

Hi Khalil:
There are two sources that I am aware of:

1) If an emergency stop was made and the tires wire locked up, as the vehicle skidded to a stop, rubber was scrubbed off the tires from friction with the pavement. When trying to drive on these tires, the flat spot will cause a discernable "bump" when impacting the pavement.

2) While not as common, older or inadequately inflated tires on parked vehicles will present a "flat spot" when the vehicle is first used. This will be particularly obvious in cold weather. As the tires warm up while being used, this flat spot circumstance typically cures itself.

Hope this helps.

2001 chrysler town country shakes running at 40mph but stops shaking when it reaches 60mph

Could be a tire out of balance, a drive axle, or something in the engine.
Is the check engine light on ?
Would it shake if you were coasting down a hill at 40 or 50 mph ?

There is a hum in the back right side of the car - started a week ago - seems to be greatest at certain MPH - and on certain pavement - not bad at start up - seems to be most noticeable at 30-40 mph and...

That sounds like either a wheel bearing or a busted belt in the tire. Move that tire to the front. If the sound moves, it is the tire, if the sound doesn't move, it is the wheel bearing.
