So take a look on...

Chrysler Repair: oil pressure, chrysler engines, 1998 plymouth breeze
chrysler engines, 1998 plymouth breeze, plymouth breeze: The oil pressure is what the oil light is telling you about, that it is less than some low #lbs/square inch of pressure.

Chrysler Repair: overheating, fan not working?, head gasket leak, engine radiator
head gasket leak, engine radiator, chrysler sebring: Hi Bonnie, You didn t say whether it has released any steam or not, which would of course cause a loss of coolant.

Chrysler Repair: After overnight charge on battery, engine starts, but doesn't idle & stops immediately upon releasing gas peddle., battery engine, overnight charge
battery engine, overnight charge, engine controller: You are welcome, Hawkeye. My thinking is that the SBEC in a 92 LeBaron is not so sophisticated as to need significant relearning.

Chrysler Repair: P1698 code:is it related to a remote car starter?, remote car starter, transmission control module
remote car starter, transmission control module, powertrain control: Hi Ivan, The only way to resolve this, it seems to me, is to find the instruction manual for installing the unit and check it out for yourself. But again, if there is no impact on the functioning of the truck why worry about it? It appears to be a transitory...

Chrysler Repair: Park Netural Switch/starter relay: 300M '99, neutral safety switch, starter solenoid
neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, starter relay: Hi Rooger, The start neutral safety switch is inside the transmission at the end of the shift rod that goes inside the solenoid box, so you could trace that when the starter motor refuses to engage.

Chrysler Repair: Passenger Window on Chrysler Concord, chrysler concord, jumper wires
chrysler concord, jumper wires, brown wires: Hi Greg, Unfortunately the lift mechanism is a sector gear that is linked to the window motor mechanically so you can t move it without either getting the motor to work again or by removing the motor.
