Default don't ever buy a chrysler

i mean it. The evap core in our 96 Town & Country sprung a leak and my dad and i have spent the last day and a half, working til 10 each night trying to replace it. Its located on the firewall on the INSIDE, and just about every part between the engine and front seats had to come out.

Not to mention the 2.7 is a total DOG. Rode in my buddy'* '01 Concorde once, he apparently was pushing the thing pretty hard from a stoplight.


I noticed lots of engine revving, noise, etc, but didn't notice much acceleration. Looked over and he was pushing 5000rpm - sure as hell didn't feel like it. Tranny wasn't slipping either.
