Let’s say you bought a newer GC that had, say, the 3.6 with a blown trans. Then found a crashed AWD Journey. Engine and trans a direct bolt in, just with the AWD transfer box hanging off the back. How to swap the independent rear might be a bit of a challenge, though.

I wonder if some of that is just the stubborn electronic throttle behavior that pretty much all of Chrysler’s products share. The throttle response just isn’t nearly what the old cable operated ones have. I find if i’m in a passing situation at part throttle pulling from the aforementioned 2500-3500 or 4000 rpm it Read more

I’m really surprised you find the 3.6 feels under-powered. My 2014 feels like it pulls a lot harder in the 2500-4000 range then either the 3.3 or 3.8 powered caravans I’ve driven before.

Sounds like you know what you’re doing. I’m too far away to help but I’m a bored Service/Parts Adviser at a Chrysler Dealership and a lot of experience with various junk. Hit me up anytime for service info or diagnostic help.

If there’s no external leak under-hood...my vote goes to to the heater core leaking. I get very few Toyotas through our shop, but I can’t see any other way it’s getting in there.

Go to Nissan Dealership. Buy a 2019 Versa S brand new with a full warranty. Finance it for ~$200 month / 5 years with no down payment. Always have reliable transportation with no headaches leaving you free to tinker on Jeeps.

Hmmm. I do have an abandoned ‘93 caravan with a a 3.3 / 3 speed combination if i remember correctly. I’ve thought about using the power-train rear-mounted in a dune buggy. Maybe it’s time revisit the plan with a turbocharger or two.

A 31TH handling 500 horsepower? If it was anybody else making that claim I’d dismiss it. Doesn’t the case just explode when fed that much torque?
