2000 Chrysler Town & Country LX 6 Cyl 3.30L


Why is my van going into limp mode?

If I start it cold and drive, it drives and shifts fine. After a couple of minutes, it goes into limp mode. What could be causing this. What can I check?

Check for applicable trouble codes. Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free, if you can get the vehicle down there. Or get yourself an obd2 code reader and check codes, yourself.

he check engine light is located on the dash and stays on if the computerized engine control system detects an engine performance or emissions problem.

First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.
There are literally hundreds of possible codes - so this first step is important to begin any diagnosis.
