Question about 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

2004 chrysler pacifica oil light will flash and ding after coming to a stop

I had the oil changed as it was right at the 3000 miles to do so. It still is flashing but only periodically not every time that I drive the car. I also have codes 0440,0442,0456 reporting all say it is gas cap or evap system. I have replaced the cap as purchased from dealer. It is not the problem. Do believe there is more to it.

You have two problems going on.
The oil light is telling you the engine oil pressure is low. If the oil level is full, the sending unit for the light is faulty, or you actually do have low oil pressure.
The codes are for a leak in the EVAP system which could be the gas cap but could also be a number of other things. There are valves and hoses that could leak.
The engine oil pressure would need to be checked with a mechanical gauge, and the gas tank venting system would need to be tested for leaks.

Could be the gas cap.  Do you fill the tank with the engine running?
Otherwise, check the hoses near the Evap canister.  I have 2003 T&C and had the small leak and large leak codes.  I looked at the evap cansiter and the hose coming from the fuel tank vapor line had a huge crack in it, to the point it had fallen off the evap caniser.  I trimmed the end of the hose and reconnected and voila, no codes.
The evap canister is on the driver's side of the van, underneath, slightly behind the drivers seat.
BTW, to clear the codes without an OBDII reader, remove the negative cable for 5-10 minutes (15 to be safe).  The computer resets and clears the codes, except for one that it sets saying loss of power to the memory.

SOURCE: Perform Service Light comes on

This is a setting that can be reset to 2000 miles - when it counts down to 0 you get the "Perform Service" alert. I believe if you use the Step function you will see "XX miles to Service" Use the reset button to set this back to 2000.

It is for an oil change mainly and any other service your maintenance manual suggests at the mileage interval. It needs to be reset after each oil change to be accurate.

Most likely it means that the mechanic didn't bother to reset the service interval after changing the oil.

You can do this yourself by hitting the Step button until you see 0 miles until Service displayed, then hold the reset button until it changes to 3000 miles.

Can someone help me my pt cruizer 2004 oil come one and blinks on and off and ding a lot if i change my oil would it stop and stays off


Yes, changing the oil will help, however, you will also have to clear the "change oil" light. Either figure out what buttons to press to delete that, or go to an auto parts store and ask if they can help you reset it.

HI,I HAVE A CHRYSLER PACIFICA 2006 3.5L W SYNTHETIC OIL ,EVERY HOW MANY MILES NEED TO BE CHANGED?


Everyone say's 3000 miles. I was a technician for 16 years, I own three cars. One with 194000, one with 140000 and one with 107000 miles on it. I change my oil every 4000 to 5000 miles. From my experience most engine problems are from a lack of oil, not from a lack of oil changes. Remember to always keep an eye on your oil level.

AC/fan suddenly stops and dinging gas gauge


My fan stopped blowing too!! I was worried that my compressor had went out. The mechanic said that the blower had burned out and he charged me 169.00 for the part and 50.00 for labor.

I have a 2004 Pacifica with 58K miles.
