You mention two issues: fast idle hard brakes Both of these point to a vacuum leak. Inspect the brake booster vacuum line; it might have been compromised during the spark plug swap.

It sounds like your shifter may not be seating into park correctly. You may want to try moving it back and forth from gear into park (occasionally, with a slight amount of force; you don't want to break anything). Verify that the key is not in the accessory position, and each time you switch to park, try to remove the key. I've also seen the key release ...

The lens for the turn signal on the passenger mirror is missing

I suspect your Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve. It's job is to feed enough air to the engine when you take your foot of the throttle. This is a 15 year old engine we are talking about, the valve may be too dirty to operate or may have simply broken. You may want to try one from the junkyard just for diagnosis purposes, and you should be able to do this yourself....

A worn camshaft would very likely cause low compression on a few cylinders, depending on which lobes were worn.And replacing a cam and associated lifters ( they ride on the cam) could be a 100 % fix. A traditional cam ( steel or cast iron ) is carburized to give a very hard surface and a low hardness / tough core. The thickness or hardness of the hard layer ...

That's part of the track assembly. Unfortunately, you'll have to replace the whole assembly as that exact part isn't available by itself (maybe you can find it at a pull-it-yourself type of junkyard, but I imagine they'd want you to take the whole assembly). Most likely, that assembly will have to be purchased through Chrysler. I've also been told that the ...

I posted this on Reddit, too and someone suggested just pulling the key out with pliers. I did and now the key goes in and out just fine! Who would've thought?

Almost certainly both. If it is smoking and smells, that suggests that the brakes are being held on - does the wheel get hot as well? (feel it gently with the back of your hand, being very careful as they can get VERY hot). If so, that means that either the caliper is sticking, or the hoses are clogged - either way the brakes are being applied, but then ...

That could mean anything. It's a code intended for the folks who build the car, not so much as an indicator for the customer. My guess is the M represents a color code. The '1' for some other option that's not so obvious. (leather or vinyl trim? wood trim? cut outs in trim parts for optional switches, etc...) I'd guess that label is used by build folks ...

Sounds like a loose caliper or sticky guide pin. Take them all apart and really grease them replace the boots as necessary.

Inspect your wire harness as explained in this video. Basically, remove the cover, remove the clips and slide the harness around. Look for broken or frayed wires.

Things to check: Is the engine fan running slowly at idle? If so, its a sign that it needs replacement. Is there a funny smell in the cabin? Refrigerant tends to slowly leak and has a weird smell. Have a friend smell the cabin air in case you got used to the smell (due to driving it all the time). For more and better help we will need a bit more info.

How do you replace a low-beam headlight on a '99 Chrysler Town&Country Lxi? If you open your hood and look directly behind where the headlight bulb is located, you'll see some wire protruding out from the area. Pull this plug out from the back of the headlight bulb, then turn the retainer ring counter-clockwise to remove it, then pull the bulb out. When ...

From memory I believe that it does although over OBD2 is rather vague. It requires a scan tool that can access the data from the gauge cluster. It won't be available in the standard OBD2 stream.

It sounds as though things might not have been put back together correctly. The caliper is two pieces, one with the piston, the other with the bracket which attaches to the suspension. Ensure these are have free movement. They could be rusted inside. Next, check to ensure you put the right pad in the right place. The one with the "squealer" should be on the ...

If you can tighten it, there are some threads there which are gripping, so this would probably be a case of the threads on the plug being stripped. If it doesn't tighten back up, this would probably be a case of either the threads on the pan or on the plug being stripped. I don't have any real good news for you here in either case, but could possibly help ...
