Why would there be a $500 deductible? The Lifetime Powertrain Warranty doesn't have a deductible that I'm aware of.
#816 of 838 Transmission Problem
Dec 07, 2011 (4:13 am)
I own a 2004 Pacifica, and 2days ago it would change from 1st gear, it drives but would change, tried using the speptronic system that would work either.
The mechanic said it is electrical fault and it has to do with the brainbox .
Please any body with these issue before

According to Chrysler, there was no warranty on the transmission. It had roughly 70,000 miles on it, but I had brought it in several times prior stating there was something wrong. We had to fight with corporate Chrysler to get it fixed. They made it seem like a rare thing that they did it for us. They said the transmission would cost about $5,000.00, so the $500.00 should not seem like such a big deal. I just picked it up today, and the transmission that they just put in 10 months ago has a 3 year warranty. We only have 2 years left, even though they just put in another brand new transmission.
I was just reading though that there is only one kind of transmission fluid that should be used in Chrysler's and that most dealers, and mechanics do not know about it, that for some reason Chrysler does not make it clear. It stated that 90% of the transmission failures are caused by that? I'm not sure, but I am going to ask what they used.

You are right, Chrysler has used a special a/t fluid for decades. ATF3 and now ATF4. It has an extra Lubrizol additive mix that is specific for the Chrysler a/t's.
There are several off the self a/t fluids that are certified for use in the Chrysler a/ts, even the ATF 3 and 4 sold by WalMart are.
No need for exotic expensive brands, these work great.

EVERYONE WITH 04-07 Pacifica problems, call 888 327 4236. It is the national traffic safety board and let them know your complaints. If enough people call and complain of same problem, they will force a recall.
I have an 05 pacifica I just bought , shimmy and rattkle when I take off. Broken Motor mounts. Seems to be an issue with Chrysler. I called chrysler ( # from website) got a case assigned, and I will update everyone on how much they are going to help pay on this issue. I had a POS 06 jeep commander, everything went bad, they were going to pay for half of new transmission and ignition switch. Just call Chrysler and the safety Board. Stand united.

#822 of 838 Chrysler Service Contracts, are they worth it?
Apr 29, 2012 (11:57 pm)
I have bought more than 10 Chrysler made vehicles and purchased a Service Contract on each of them. I have never lost a dine. I found dealers go the xtra mile to help if you hae a Service Contract.
What is your reason for purchasing one? Or why didn't buy a Service Contract?
#823 of 838 2005 Pacifica Transmission/No Reverse
May 16, 2012 (5:04 pm)
I have a 2005 Pacifica that is out or warranty,and I just happened to make my last car payment in March after 6 years. (ARGH!) I bought it used in Feb.2006,with very low mileage. The reverse has totally failed. After speaking to several people,one a diy mechanic said that I probably only need a reverse linkage bushing. ? . Then I took it to the Chrysler dealer who said I need a whole new transmission, at a cost of about 3,000. Anyone else have this kind of problem? Sometimes when I put the car into drive, I get this heavy clunking noise. And Over the years Ive had lighting issues, headlights on driver side has been replaced 4 times, the lights just not working at all, even the dashboard went totally blank, but came back on after I stopped the car and restarted. also the car use to stall going uphill. That stopped. ANyway, any advice certainly would be appreciated.

2005 was the only year that Chrysler offered the 7/70 transferable powertrain warranty. You might be close to the 7 years and probably over the 70k. If it had very low mileage, you still might be in luck. Good luck.
