3.8 L VE Routan had 41k miles and usage approx 2 qts oil between changes..... VW and Chrysler both know this to be a problem.... And do nothing....Had a 2004 Chrysler TC and same thing... Thought maybe they would've solved this thing .... My big mistake!

VAN KEEPS SHUTTING OFF, THEY REPLACED THE TIP MODULE (FUSE BOX) & THE IGNITIONS.
