      The 4.0L is a very different engine from the 3.8L the OP is talking about. The 3.8L has a known problem with seals or gaskets installed improperly at the Chryco assembly plant on a stretch of...

      Unless he blew the head gasket when he overheated the motor after the coolant leak resulting (possibly) in oil migration to the coolant, no? I know the 3.8L motors are known for sudden onset of...

      Are you saying the seat back is folded down on top of the seat bottom, so the seat is not usable (either stowed away or for regular seating facing forward)? Does the seat motor sound like it's...

      Looking at the specs listed for '09 SEL Premium on cars.com, the phraseology is a little confusing.

      I don't see how this has much to do with Chrysler (other than inability to get the parts quickly) or minivans at all. Your dealership screwed you and VWoA assisted by not standing up to properly...

      Did they kiss you first? Wow. $91 is too expensive even for full synth at the dealership for this vehicle. It doesn't require any special designations like some other VAG synth oil req'ts that...

      My local Dodge dealership sells online (factorychryslerparts.com) and has several transmission kits that include the TC and presumably more if labelled as a kit (bolts, fluid, etc.). Options...

      I know some (most? all?) 'real' VW automatic transmissions come with new TC and full of fluid as part of the parts price for the reman transmission, but not sure that applies to the Chysler sourced...

      Disconcerting story, 58. Both that the transmission will crap out with little/no warning. And that it's $4300 to replace. Transmissions have gotten insanely high priced, IMO. I understand with a...

      Awesome news. I love to see when a company steps up to do the right thing. It seems with VWoA that it's sometimes a crapshoot whether they will help or tell you to go pound sand.

      Not sure what's going on with your cluster, but electrical seems like a good guess. As for the remote start not working, i have found ours doesn't work if there is a check engine light. Not sure if...

      Received my notice yesterday too. MozartMan, I wouldn't bother calling the dealership as VWoA doesn't have the parts yet. The dealership may not even know much/anything about it yet since they...

      Despite being $80-ish at the brick n' mortars, Amazon and Rock Auto have the Gates version for $45-ish for both inlet and outlet Y-hoses. Looking at Rock Auto, apparently AC Delco also has the Y...

      Pretty sure updates have to be done via DVD. I think there is a self-executable file on the disc that automatically triggers the updates, and that's the only way to get the hardware to enter into...

      I think this is where we get screwed a bit driving the VW badged Chrysler. VW dealerships want to be able to advertise "genuine VW oil change for XYZ" across the board but our Chryslers, generally...
