Chrysler Corporation cars are well-engineered and therefore are repairable by the amateur mechanic given the necessary information. The service manuals too are excellent so I enjoy helping other owners fix their car's problems.
I hope to learn from other owners' experiences so that I can apply this knowledge to my '89 Chrysler LeBaron coupe and help other owners solve their problems economically so they can keep these good older vehicles on the road.
While there are many different domestic models from Chrysler Corp. they have relatively few different engines and there is much mechanical overlap in their chassis designs. The engineering of the electrical systems is very similar as well.
I was raised as a Chrysler 'kid' when my Dad bought a new '41 Dodge and used it to haul our family around Chicago during the war years. I recall one reason he bought a Chrysler product was he thought that Corp. was more non-discriminatory in its employment practices, compared to GM or Ford. He never bought anything but Chrysler and now I have inherited his last car.

Hi Matthew, I don't have a similar plug to try it on. So alternatively, don't remove the plug, try simply removing the bulbs at the back-up sockets, then pierce through the white/green wire with a pin
Hi Matthew, As I mentioned earlier, I have the park assist fault codes for the '09 minivan, but not for the Pacifica '07. The Mitchell '09 manual I have seems to be confined to just showing what to do
What is in there now? 5W-20? Then use 10W-30, for example. Do also check that the oil now in looks normal. If it were frothy that would mean some water is in it due to a leak. But otherwise, just go up
Hi Mickey, I believe that wear has lowered the oil pressure at idle rpm. The easiest way to fix this is to increase the oil "weight" one step from what it is now when the next oil change is due. That
Hi Dana, That on its face says there are no codes related to the engine, and perhaps none related to the body controller, but it is not certain that latter is the case. You can positively know about body
