Town & Country

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Inside sidewall on left front wheel suddenly split away. On four different occasions while driving the transmission suddenly downshipt without any warning to a lower gear causing the speed of the car to immediately drop from 65-70 mph to 50mph or less and on other occassion the transmission lockup, problem diagnosed as relay control for tcm, replaced, to no avail. Transmission leaks oil and other fluid, replace shat seal, gasket and resealed pan. Replace fuel gas tank to achieve reliable fuel gauge measurement. Steering locks up especially on hard left turn, replace rack and pinion.
