      The wires can break inside the lower door harness. The harness is the black plastic chain that looks like the tracks that go around wheels on army tanks. There are youtube videos on how to find the...

      95k on the front brakes, or on the van?

      I looked at some Bosch and seriously considered it for the fronts, but was reading some comments/user reviews that they were now coming from China (the...

      Ok, update for posterity's sake. I am at 109k miles and 'finally' had to do front brakes again. Previous fronts were BrakePerformance dot-com premium semi-metallic pads and premium dimpled & slotted...

      Double check the brake caliper bracket. I've had the screws back out on two of them and they start grinding before separating and falling off. Both times it happened to me (one rear and one front)...

      Could be any number of things, so not sure I'd just go throwing ~$100 in parts at it to see if it's the EGR. Rough idle, hesitation, and drop-off on fuel efficiency are consistent with bad EGR valve...

      Thanks, George! I really appreciate it.

      Funny, that dealership (Cherokee Chrysler-Dodge) is about 30 miles from my house and I knew they had a big online store, but I couldn't find it and...
    7. Options for Engine / Motor Mounts & Transmission Mount?

      Anyone found any good options for engine & trans mounts? I couldn't really find anything here or on the Chrysler minivans forums for our vehicles. OEM parts prices seems to be in the range of $420...

      Exact same problem as OP posted with stalling on cold engine within approx. 1 mile (if not much much sooner). It'd lose power steering and brakes, and the traction control light would illuminate,...

      Guy at Napa tried pushing Pentosin on me too. I think they hear "Volkswagen" and think Pentosin.

      Zerex G-05 works and should be ~$12-15 a gallon. You must use "HOAT" (Hybrid Organic Additive...

      Cool. Thanks for sharing.

      So I don't recall if it was someone else here, or over on the Chrysler minivan boards, but no issues with just doing the fronts? I recall some discussion about needing...

      Where are you located? The transmission is $2600 ($3400 w/ $800 core) but can be found for $1900 online (from VW dealerships) but it requires returning core for $800 credit. So factor...

      Same thing with me. The service "advisor" insisted that only the standard VW dealership 12mo/12k miles warranty applied. But the service tech left the Mopar warranty card on the passenger seat...

      VW may, but Chrysler and Bentley don't. A timing belt/water pump job is right at $1k, and I have a hard time believing a timing chain could possibly be any less than a timing belt to replace.

      I put that in quotes because there is nothing German about the Routan, other than the badge, and even that was likely made here. It definitely handles like a typical American vehicle.

      But Chrysler...

      There are a few recalls that should have been performed.

      One involved the sliding door tracks for the power sliding doors. More of an adjustment than a recall/replacement, as I recall.

      I've gotten the P0456 code a few times. It's usually been the gas cap, but I had one time when it caused the van not to start, and when it did it also ran rough. I had 82k miles on the odo so VW...
