Alternative Battery Sizes. Group 35 battery might fit instead of 34?
I parked my old Camry last month when I got my T&C. I had just put a brand new battery in it this March. The problem is that most Toyotas use a group 35 battery instead of the group 34 that the T&C is spec'ed for. Up until my dad decided to buy a new T&C for my mom in August I had no plans on...
interior light problem
why does only the bottom half of my interior lights work.
My Gig software update.
Hello Everyone, I am looking for a update for the mygig in my Caravan. I have been searching around and see that it has to be updated version by version to prevent bricking. I currently have version 9.004. So I assume it has never been updated since new. I believe the next update is 9.112...

slow heating when engine warm
Hello. It was 11 degrees F here this morning, so heat is an important feature on the old T&C. I have owned it for 11 years, and put on about 110,000 miles. A couple things I have noticed: 1. The heater doesn't seem to blow warm air at idle. The engine can warm fully, but it doesn't blow...
'08 SE center console options?
I have an '08 SE. It has the standard console. I would like to add a better center console. I am looking for something like the Super Console. Has anyone mounted the Super console in an SE? From all the photos I have found online, it looks like it would need some modifications since the dashes...
It's going to be an early winter, a turtle told me so.
A large snapping turtle makes an approximate 1/4 mile trek up across a couple of properties, plus mine, every year. He comes from a large pond, up fairly steep terrain at first and along more level terrain until he hits a brook on my property, and then follows that brook up to a boggy area where he...

Are You Using High Mileage Oil or Conventional Oil?
So we have over 171K on our 01 DGC EX 3.8L engine. I've always used Pennzoil 10W-30 in warmer months and 5W-30 in the colder months. We have no oil leaks and about half a quart oil burn between oil changes. Our last oil change I tried Pennzoil High Mileage oil. I'm now switching back to...
Oil Pan and Transmission Gaskets
I have a 2009 TC Touring with the 3.8L and the entire bottom end needs gaskets. It just turned 107K miles and has started leaking fluids from everywhere. This weekend I plan on replacing the oil pan and transmission gaskets but found 2 issues. 1. The oil pan appears to be 2 pieces, the pan...
2004 Grand Caravan dash cluster problem
I'm having a problem with the dash cluster in the above vehicle. All of the lights, fuel gauge, temperature gauge, and odometer work as they should. However, neither the speedometer nor the tachometer work; in fact, they have both gone all the way past their limits and the needles are against the...

Brake light switch
So the van got it's new water pump and has been running well, which means I haven't been logging in as I should. Well enough that I've delivered a couple thousand telephone books with it and counting. Had to replace passenger headlight, which has been working since April when it went out 10 days...
Ready for this winter, I think, on the '97 AWD T&C 3.8l
So far I've put a lot of work into my free van trying to get it back up to full health. Not much was done on it over 17 years by the prior owners (my parents) when they drove it unless they had a problem. Mostly it was just oil changes and a lot of brake jobs. The battery and the serpentine belt...
5th Gen sliding door rubber gaskets are splitting?
My wife and I just bought a used 2013 TnC Touring from a local dealer. Noticed the other day when operating the sliding glass doors that both rubber gaskets that separate the sliding door from the front door are splitting. They don't appear to be deteriorated at all - see the pics below. I assume...
