The Chrysler Town & Country is a minivan with Chrysler style. Whether you're using the Town & Country to simply drive yourself around town or whether you are hauling all the kids to a ball game, you want your air pressure to be correct for the safety of everyone on the road.

1

Mute the speaker Listen to this using a male or female voice M/F Check your tires when they are no longer warm from diving. That is, the vehicle should have been driven less than 1 mile in recent hours. Understand that every increase of 10 degrees in the temperature outside raises need for a higher tire air pressure by 1 psi.

Mute the speaker Listen to this using a male or female voice M/F Remove the screw caps from the valve stems of the tires you are checking. At your regular check, be sure to do all four tires at the same time. Place the caps in your pocket or other safe place until you have completed your check. Chrysler recommends that you keep the tires on your Town & Country at 28 to 36 psi, depending on how much weight you carry in your minivan.

Mute the speaker Listen to this using a male or female voice M/F Locate the small pin in the center of the valve stem. Making sure that the indicator stick is all the way in at the other end of the gauge, press the other end of the gauge firmly and quickly against the valve stem. If you hear a hissing sound, this means that air is escaping and you need to apply more pressure to the gauge. With practice, you should be able to do this in one quick movement.

Mute the speaker Listen to this using a male or female voice M/F Remove the gauge and check the reading on the indicator stick that will pop out. The last number appearing on the stick is the current pressure of the air in your tire.

5

Mute the speaker Listen to this using a male or female voice M/F Add air if low. Try not to exceed the recommended psi for your Town & Country, unless you will be hauling an extremely heavy load. Don't forget to replace all caps and put your tire gauge away.
