Chrysler Repair: Electronic Transmission doesn't shift out of gear:, chrysler new yorker, output shaft
chrysler new yorker, output shaft, chrysler dealer: Hi Ken I suspect that the run-up in speed and then backing off is simply because you have the wheel off the ground and so there is an over-response and then backing off by the cruise control.

Chrysler Repair: Electronic transaxle: delayed shifting into reverse, clutch problems, readout device

digit code number, pollution control systems, chrysler sebring: Hi Mary, By 97 the ignition key/check engine light flashing approach was out of date, I believe, for your car.

Chrysler Repair: Engine misa, fuel injected 2, combustion chamber
fuel injected 2, combustion chamber, shifting gears: Hi John, I assume that it is a fuel injected 2.2 non-turbo, but let me know if that is not the case.

chrysler concord, bucking bronco, coil pack: Hi Bruce, I located the earlier q & a which was on approximately Feb 22.

Chrysler Repair: Engine misses then dies:1999 Chrysler Cirrus, 4 digit numbers, code translator
4 digit numbers, code translator, chrysler cirrus: Hi John, The charging system is not usually the cause of the engine dieing. More likely it is the spark or fuel mixture.

Chrysler Repair: Engine noise after storage (6 months), oil pressure gauge, valve tappets
oil pressure gauge, valve tappets, oil gauge: Assuming the engine oil level is not too high or too low, then probably the oil pressure in each of the valve tappets (automatic valve lash adjusters) has dropped down or to 0 as time passed and now you need to run the engine at low rpm for the pressures to...

Chrysler Repair: Engine overheats in heavy traffic only, radiator fan, atmoshphere
radiator fan, atmoshphere, mid scale: Hi Helena, I suspect that your radiator fan is not coming on in response to the rise in temperature beyond mid-scale. This could be either that the fan system is not working or that the temperature sensor is not asking it to come on. The first thing is...

blade tip, philips head, flat blade: Hi Tim, Thanks for that report. If you tried to readout the controller for fault codes you should have gotten a 21,51, or 52. In fact if you haven t disconnected the battery recently you should still find one of those codes stored. Disconnecting the battery...

Chrysler Repair: Engine never reaches operating temp., coolant temp, radiator cooling fans
coolant temp, radiator cooling fans, engine temp: Hi Rick, Most folks have the opposite problem with the cooling system, but I know that you need heat.

Chrysler Repair: Engine runnig rough after contaminated gas used, mercedes owner, sopport
mercedes owner, sopport, addressee: Hi Joao, One appproach would be to look at a plug and see if appears to be damaged (look at the white insulator as well as the electrodes). If that looks normal, then it would be reasonable to suspect that one or both of the oxygen sensors is bad. But these...

Chrysler Repair: Engine shakes violently, chrysler sebring convertible, intake manifold gasket
chrysler sebring convertible, intake manifold gasket, engine gasket: Hello Andreas, I don t think that knicking the rotor plastic will cause an imbalance, but look at the damaged area to see if it might allow some current to arc to ground at that spot which would cause a misfiring of the ignition. The violent shaking usually...

Chrysler Repair: Engine shuts down after starting, no guages: '98 van, drb iii, digital odometer
drb iii, digital odometer, page test: Hi Cami. Yes, the shut down after 3 seconds is exactly what the controller will do when it believes you are trying to steal the vehicle. It may be arming itself somehow. I would try to using the key to unlock the driver s and/or the passenger s everytime...

push button locks, remote keyless entry, cancun mexico: Hi Mike, This exact problem has been reported to me before.

But...

Chrysler Repair: Engine shutsdown at near idle rpm, exhaust gas recirculation valve, exhaust gas recirculation
exhaust gas recirculation valve, exhaust gas recirculation, plymouth voyager: Hi Robert, Two things to try: fault code readout and check the action of the egr valve.

Chrysler Repair: Engine stalls when put in Drive, solenoid switch, chrysler dealer
solenoid switch, chrysler dealer, transmission shops: Hi Jode, If the engine stalls abruptly on your Cirrus, as if some one clamped it, then I would suspect that the lock-up function on the torque converter of the transmission is in the lock-up position. That means it is the same as popping the clutch on a...

Chrysler Repair: Engine stalls after driving several hours/wait few hours, obd ii code, independent shop
obd ii code, independent shop, engine stalls: Hi Russ, I would be reluctant to replace the sensors until I got a code of some sort: code 11 for a crank sensor, code 54 for a cam sensor.

Chrysler Repair: '97 Van: no speedometer or fuel gauge readings, gauge readings, loose plug

camshaft sensor, crankshaft sensor, crank sensor: Hi Minnie, This behavior sounds to me like the failure or the crankshaft sensor or the camshaft sensor.

exhaust gas recirculation valve, exhaust gas recirculation, intake plenum: Hi Steven, My suspicion is that the mixture of fuel/air is getting out of whack, perhaps due a faulty exhaust gas recirculation valve.

Chrysler Repair: Engine stumbles when throttle opened quickly at idle, throttle position sensor, chrysler sebring
throttle position sensor, chrysler sebring, sebring lx: Hi Mark, I would recheck the egr to make sure that it is closing tight when at idle.

Chrysler Repair: Engine stutters at idle: 3.5L Chrysler 1999 300m, exhaust gas recirculation valve, side exhaust manifold
exhaust gas recirculation valve, side exhaust manifold, air fuel ratio: Hi Blake, While the problem could be related to the spark system or other electronics/mechanicals of the engine, I would suggest that we look at one part that adversely affects the air/fuel ratio and results in rough idle, but without setting a specific code...

wintry weather, normal temperatures, moderation in all things: Hi Wojtek, Everything I have read about prolonged warming up an engine at idle says that it is not the most economical or wear-minimizing technique and in fact should be avoided. The recommended regimen is to allow the engine to run at moderate rpm for long...

Chrysler Repair: Engine warnig light, gm code, engine controller
gm code, engine controller, speed sensor: Hi John, That is an interesting question as I am unaware if the code numbers are identical between the GM and Chrysler vehicles.

Chrysler Repair: Engine won't idle, fault code 25, ais motor, wire colors
ais motor, wire colors, fred davis: Hi Fred, That code makes sense. It says the automatic idle motor circuit is faulty, or the motor itself is bad, or it might even be dirt on the pintel or orifice into which it fits, or the by-pass air passageway. You will find the AIS motor mounted on the...

1996 chrysler cirrus, chrysler cirrus, crankshaft sensor: Hi Sarah, The 12 code is common and just means the battery power to the engine controller was sepatated sometime in the past.

Chrysler Repair: Error code 0406: 2005 Grand Caravan, egr solenoid, exhaust gas recirculation
egr solenoid, exhaust gas recirculation, ground circuits: Hi Eric, This system is a little bit beyond the year limits of my claim of expertise .

Chrysler Repair: Error code 32, hard starting, 2.5L V-6, exhaust gas recirculation valve, penetrating lubricant
exhaust gas recirculation valve, penetrating lubricant, exhaust gas recirculation: Hi Terry, Your hard start is most likely related to the exhaust gas recirculation valve which is what the 32 code is all about.
