2004 Town & Country noise question

3 posts in this topic

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?

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
