wd 40, diameter pipe, dodge intrepid: Hi John, I would take a look at the egr valve which if sticking slightly ajar at start up will cause exactly this behavior. Once it warms up it may close at idle and that ends the problem. It is located in the small diameter pipe between the right exhaust...

Chrysler Repair: 1993 Chrysler Imperial A/C, chrysler imperial, fusible links
chrysler imperial, fusible links, harnes: Hi Terry, No fuses or relays as those two systems are on separate fuses.

throttle position sensor, lebaron, cooling fan: Hi Shawn, The sensor should read 10,000-14,000 ohms when cold, 700-1,000 ohms when hot.

The wire that carries that signal is dark blue/yellow...

Chrysler Repair: 1993 B 250 no start, spark coil, cam sensor
spark coil, cam sensor, spark test: Hi Anita, By 5 ? am I correct in assuming that was a 55 (which means end of readout), or could it have been a 54 which means a problem with the cam position sensor (which could be the cause of no spark)? Do you hear the fuel pump run for about 1 second...

Chrysler Repair: 1993 T&C electrical gremlins, soldering pencil, plug sockets
soldering pencil, plug sockets, th power: Hi Thomas, I would start at the dash. Check the solder joints between the plug sockets and the circuit board.

Chrysler Repair: 1996 Caravan: no spark., crank pulley, crank sensor
crank pulley, crank sensor, oxygen sensors: Hi Pat, I would check to make sure that you are getting 12v to the spark coil pack on the dark green/orange wire when you are cranking.

Chrysler Repair: '93 transmission problem:no forward gear, solenoid valve, forward gear
solenoid valve, forward gear, transmission controller: Hi Bill, About the only local fix to try is to check the fluid level in the transaxle via its dipstick. If some is needed only use ATF +4 type. If that is not the reason for the no forward drive, then the best thing to do is tow it to a reputable transmission...

Chrysler Repair: '94 Dodge Spirit V-6: radiatior fan won't turn on, coolant temp, dodge spirit
coolant temp, dodge spirit, socket pins: If the red wire is the fourth wire lead at the socket, then it too should be carrying 12V from the battery on gray wire (not a red wire).

Chrysler Repair: 95 Lebaron Interior Lights don't work, door switches, work question
door switches, work question, ground path: Yes, You are seeing that there is power to the bulbs, and that of course means that power will be present on the other side of each bulb, but there is no ground path for current to flow.

fuel pump relay, fuse panel, fuel pump: Hi Steve, Sorry, my mistake, my eye slipped down one line: it is pin 3 that has the red/white 12v power all the time. So that looks OK except for the way pin 51 is behaving. So the problem is that you never see the pin 51 drop to 0V? Not even during that...

Chrysler Repair: 96 Sebring cuts off and oil pressure needle goes up and down, distributer cap, engine sensors
distributer cap, engine sensors, fault code reader: Hi Bernadette, The best way to go is to get a fault code readout to see if the engine computer has sensed what is wrong.

Chrysler Repair: 97 LHS Transmission slipping, torque converter, independent shop
torque converter, independent shop, dexron: Hi Jeff, On the fluid, just be sure there is no Dexron in it; use only ATF +4.
