    My 2004 pacifica died on me yesterday after jerking really bad. The hubby banged on the gas tank & it started. today he replaced the fuel pump & it wont start right away, sounds like it wants to turn over but doesnt. then when it does start it revs up to 4000 rpm's. Does anyone know what the problem is?

    Had the same issue with my '05 a year ago, continually stalling when making a slow left hand turn (generally into a parking place, entire car would just die). Replaced 02 sensor, solved the problem. However, now looking at $700 for a new oil pan, $1000 for rear shocks, and $1200 for timing belt, and that is just the start. Have loved the car up to this point, but it is prob time to get rid of it after going on these forums and researching, I am afraid to dump any money into it. Only has 97K, had over 147K on Toyota....and this car was babied.
  • I have a 2007 Pac, about a month ago, it wouldnt start. I was at a funeral so I went inside to pay my respects came out 2 hrs later and it started right up, like nothing happen earlier. The car hasnt done that since. But NOW its stalling while I am driving. I may be doing 30-40 mph or 50 and it just dies, I loose all sterling, its scary. NO mechanic and figure out why because of course it doesnt do it to them. Has anyone had this problem and had it fix. I need help this is crazy.
  • Chrissy,

    You are not alone with the problems with your 07 Pacifica. Mine has been intermittently stalling for over a year now. Three separate Chrysler dealerships and Chrysler themselves know about my particular problem. Many sleepless nights and hundreds of phone calls later, this is my last weekend owning a Chrysler. I think what broke the camel's back was an incident last month where I was traveling at 50mph and stalled in front of a packed elementary school bus. Simply because these problems cannot be duplicated, I have been spoken to and treated as if I am the one in the wrong. My Chrysler case manager recently told me that Chrysler can do nothing about my problems. So you are not alone. We all feel the pain.
  • Thank you Shelley for your reply. Im scared to death to drive this car. It just stalls when it wants too, no warning. I was doing 50 as you were and came pretty close to taking out a tree with my daughter in the car. I am as well looking into buy a new car, its a shame because other than the stalling the car has been a decent car, but I cant drive it with a child and feel save so Im going this week to trade it in. All the dealers and mechanics think Im nuts because of course it never stalls with someone else in the car, but my 8 year can verify it..LOL
  • i rebuilt me alternator about 6 months ago and have not had a problem sense everyone tells me that could not be the problem and well so far its worked great for me. im not trusting any one that tells me im wrong because guess what no one has done it. all the problems i was having are now gone :P i even forgot about this problem until i got an email a few days ago. if anything happens i will post on here again but for 6 months it has not happened and i have put over 10,000 miles on sense made lots of long trips for work out of state. before i rebuilt it was stalling almost every week. so just try rebuilding the alternator for about $80 if they are selling bad alternators dont go buy a new one. take it to a small shop and have it rebuilt there auto zone and all them will send it back to a dealer and have it rebuilt there. i feel they have bad parts so i would never take it to them.
  • no start at all after shutting off doing 65 mph on the highway and getting it towed to my home,whts the problem i need help
  • My old car actually always started right back up. I took it to the mechanic several time and since it wasnt doing it for them they never did figure it out. I almost wrecked doing 50 on a back road with my kid in the car and scared me half to death so I traded it in and have had my new car for a month now! And it NOT a pacifica. So glad to me rid of that headache. GOOD LUCK TO YOU
  • You are not alone my 2006 stalls. I have had all of the mounts changed, sensors, catalytic converter, gear shift mechanism etc.... I use to love my car but I've just had too many problems. My mounts needed changing at 40,000 miles. I'm driving and the car just stalls. Its scary. Someone mentioned it could be the fuel pump.
  • all i did was rebuild my alternator and it has been working great for 7 8 months now no more stalling for me :shades:

    Hello, forum. My frustration level with my PAC is at its boiling point. I have had multiple problems, each of which are so complex I can't fix it without going to the shop. This time is no different.

    When the temperature is hot outside, my car will not turn over - at all. No clicking, no noise, complete silence. I turn the key in the ignition switch all the way to the right, and I have to either apply so much pressure to get a response that my key may break (it is already bent) or I have to open all the windows and doors and allow the inside of the car to "cool down" before trying again. This can take anywhere between 15 minutes and a half hour. In winter it isn't as bad, and I can get it started better if I park the car under shade or inside a covered garage area, but even it is getting worse.

    How would inside car temperature affect the ability to turn over the engine? Is it my ignition switch?

    Certainly sounds like the switch. Remember that everything expands in heat, albeit to different levels depending on the material. This includes the gaps between the components - when you have a tight jar lid, you run hot water on it to loosen it... the heat expands the metal lid more than the glass jar, and results in a larger gap, making the lid easy to open.

    Something in the switch mechanism may be damaged just enough to not allow proper operation during that heat expansion.

  • I was wondering what tsb was because I'm having the same problem with my pacifica. I replaced the plugs, map sensor and evap selanoid. How is your car doing
  • It ended up being a damaged ignition switch. A plastic piece broke off deep inside of it. When it heated up outside, the broken piece would expand, causing difficulty to turn it. Tried to fix it and disabled the starting mechanism. Cost about $650 to replace. :(
