2004 Town & Country noise question

Question

fishinchicks

We've got a 2004 T&C with a 3.3L V6 engine. It has roughly 147000 miles on it. For the past year there has been a noise that usually gets worse as it gets colder. This summer, it was there as well. I am convinced that it is not the power steering, since it makes no difference if the steering wheel is being touched or not. It is a hum that changes in tone with the shifting of the transmission.

I have had hubby bring it in to the dealer a couple of times, but they always tell me there is nothing wrong. Is this just a normal quirk with this engine? Is it ok to ask a mechanic to come along for a ride to tell them what I am hearing? And why is it that husbands never think anything is wrong with their wife's vehicle? grin.gif I've been told to just turn up the radio, then the noise won't bother me. smirk.gif

I know the hum you are talking about. It comes and goes, depending on the outside temp. It has been determined normal in almost all cases. Some have tried to track down and replaced power steering pumps, water pumps, t-converters and other things. I would ride with a technician and get a first hand opinion on noise, but most likely it will be found normal. Something with those years?
