#3 of 45 emission problems with town and country
Apr 05, 2007 (9:52 am)
I have a 00' town and country minivan. my engine light came on today, and I got it checked out. Its a leak in the emission tube and needs to be fixed. They said I needed the length of the pipe to fix it, but I don't know which one it is. I was wondering if there was anyone out there that knows where it is. and/or knows what size it is. I have a 00' town and country mini van with 3.3l engine. 2wd.

You have to be more specific. What trouble code is the check engine lite on for? There is no such thing as a "emmission tube"

My emissions light is on and was told I had a small leak in the evap line.
I have codes P 0442 and P 0456 Can anyone tell me what they mean? Thanks, Jack

Both of these codes indicate small leaks in the evap system. Could be a problem with your gas cap. Could be it wasn't tightened well after fueling? Or it may need to be replaced with a new cap. Also, check the evap system for cuts and/or holes in lines/hoses.
#7 of 45 96 Grand Caravan Blowing Ignition Coils
Jun 27, 2007 (9:12 am)
I have a 96 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L V6 w/ 140K miles. Engine suddenly began running rough, check engine light came on, and vehicle stalled after another minute or so. Mechanic replaced Cam Sensor and Ignition Coil. Vehicle started up and ran fine for about five miles and then same thing happened. Based on code 351, Ignition Coil again replaced and vehicle again started and ran fine for about five miles before happening a third time. Code again shows 351. What is causing this?

I have a similar problem with a 97 3.8 Town and Country: The car occasionally misses/loses power. Sometimes it won't start. I replaced a bad gas cap after an evap error. a few days later same old thing. Then a cam shaft sensor error occured. Replaced that. I put a test light on the coil pack connector from computer. When it won't start, it will only fire the plugs for the first 3 revs or so. The ASD relay is remaining on as it should.

If your van is a 96 (or later), then it should have the OBD-II system. The easiest way to read the diagnostic codes is with an OBD-II scan tool. Lots of companies make them. You should be able to buy a basic one (capable of reading and clearing codes) for under $50. You plug it into the OBD-II port (a connector usually located under the dash someplace), turn the key on (but do not start the engine), and it reads and displays any codes.
I don't know about your '96 T&C, but I had a '96 Cadillac Deville that would display the codes on the instrument cluster after some ignition key and/or instrument panel push button sequence. Your T&C probably can do the same thing, but I do not know the magical sequence to make that happen.
Buy a cheap scanner. You can use it on any 1996 or later vehicle.
Some auto parts stores will read the codes for you free of charge. I think Auto Zone is one of them, but have never used them myself.
