Customer Question
I washed my 2009...

I washed my 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan today. It's 8° and now the passenger side manual sliding door won't completely close.

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

I'm trying to find out if it just needs to be heated with a blow dryer to melt any ice residue or if needs an actual repair.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

Did you read my question?

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

I said the passenger side sliding door won't close. What does that have to do with the coolant level?

What Customers are Saying:

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.
