Having problems with your Chrysler Town & Country ?
Town and country slow to start
\015 Initially van started to miss while driving. Went to local shop to have fuel filter put on. They noticed piece was broken from fuel pump and said it was trying to pull air and anything else in to engine and this caused engine to miss. New filter and pump put on, 1 week later, engine was slow to start ( following sitting for a while, overnight etc.). Eventually, ( like 2 days later) low fuel chime went off and needle was going crazy( had 3/4 of a tank). Shop put new pump on ( it was under warranty) Vehicle started up like a champ and ran well until I hit around 60-65 and started to miss. Took back to shop and they siphoned some gas out and showed me there was water in gas. Ok, after all that, my question is this: If the problem with the slow starts was the gas, why did it start up like a champ following both fuel pumps being put on? Also shop checked fuel pressure at engine and said it was fine.\015
\012The engine\012and transmission in this cars drive train are fully\012electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train\012Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer\012stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions\012to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and\012MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory,\012to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned\012with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must\012perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the\012problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN\012HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON\012PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
