Also hard shift from 3rd to 4th gear. No long travel vacations this year either as I heard a fire could start too? I think dealer dishonest not letting him fix it. It involves the complete removal of the valve in order to clean it with an appropriate solution. The Chrysler dealer called the repair Emission System Service. Cooling fan relay found to be faulty, replaced. Car stalls when I stop. The contact stated that while having the vehicle serviced, he was advised that the egr valve needed to be replaced.
Also no puddles under car. Oil light came on and oil consumption test was done. Angle of road was less than a 120 degree turn. Since the cause of the warning light could not be determined by driver, van was taken to shop immediately. Chrysler has done me wrong I will never forget it.
Hopefully that will fix it. The call stalls a couple times a day. Replaced with an aftermarket part. The next day, on second trip with van, light came back on. Cleaned the valve and verified that it worked great at 12v and didn't stick.
Vehicle did not restart for 3 minutes and 7 seconds. Had the car into the dealer several times and they found nothing wrong. I keep a scanner nearby for this car, and it indicated a failed oil pressure sensor -- the same warning it gives every year or two. Anti Freeze Crystals were observed on pump anf hose when I changed main belt. Some 800 dollars later: after they fixed a sensor, found a short and fixed it in the wiring harness. Removed wipers, wiper grill, wiper tray. Dealer keeping track of oil usage.
I added water and topped it off. Removed and replaced tensioner was the fix. Cleared code after verifying that oil pressure was reading correctly. System losing about 2psi every 5 minutes on pressure test. I thought I would get more mileage out of this, but I was rather disappointed.
Could have been a part from the belt tensioner, which was also replaced. During first attempt replaced the rings. Will never feel comfortable driving this van again due to possible accident waiting to happen. Dealer noticed evidence of oil burning on spark plug so they rebuilt the heads. Rear heater hose failed and was leaking coolant at a poorly designed plastic connector. Valve cover gasket replaced under warranty. This was a safety hazard and no one seemed to know what the problem was.
The letter states, could cause a crash, could cause a crash, and lastly not replacement parts are available. Old pump was not correct for the vehicle - required additional labor to remove. We received the safety recall in January 2015 regarding this issue. Someone could get seriously hurt or killed. Record the problem spot s and address it later.
Replaced plus and fuel injector on 1st trip. The van started fine, but while driving it home it did the same thing. . Vehicle was towed to dealer with 1570 miles on it. Water pump had crystalized fluid and had been leaking out the weep port.
They keep telling me it is the starter recall. Shop also fixed cyl 2 exhaust bolt that went missing. Took it in several times and they could not find the problem. Not noticeable burning, no blue smoke in exhaust. Original were beginning to arc in damp weather.
