Just replace water pump...

Just replace water pump. Last year rebuilt transmission and hearing from tow truck drivers that the Chrysler Town & Country are bad mechanically. Trying to decide if I should buy another car and trade this one in. It has 99,000 miles

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle ever overheated? And when was it last serviced?

It almost red lined last night but I turned it off just before it got to the red line and had it towed.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Country?

2010

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Country yourself? What have you tried so far?

Took it to my mechanic.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that is all.

OK

Did it red line without pressing the gas pedal or did it redline when driving?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Red line while driving

Have you checked the transmission fluid level?

No. I have fixed the problem by putting a new water pump. I want to know if there could be other damage because the engine was red line for a very short time.

If it ran hot only for a very short time, i dont think any damage would have been caused. These motors do have issues when overheated for a longer period of time but usually over 150K. If it is not misfiring or losing power it should be good.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
