Repair questions, but I would prefer that you use the category "Auto Repair" rather than this "Cars" category. Free, fast repair information (20-minute average answer time) for your 1982-2010 Chrysler/Dodge car, minivan, SUV.
Repair advice to help you diagnose, minimize repair costs, or do-it-yourself.
I have do-it-yourself experience (50+ years) and a library of 100 factory shop manuals/dozen multi-model CD's.
Problems with electronically controlled engines and transmissions as well as body wiring problems are my specialty. As regards Dodge trucks and Jeeps I only have manuals for the '04-'07 model years so am limited as to specifics about those vehicles outside that time frame.
There are answers on file to more than thirty-five thousand Chrysler questions at your finger tips: put a few key words in the "find" box (above) or click on "view past answers" for a chronological list of my q and a's. If you find a past answer that is helpful but not fully so, DON'T USE the "Add to This Answer"; if you still have a question ask it directly to me.
I take questions seven days a week between 8AM and 9PM Central Time. During those hours "Maxed Out" means I am answering another question so try again later.

Chrysler Corporation cars are well-engineered and therefore are repairable by the amateur mechanic given the necessary information. The service manuals too are excellent so I enjoy helping other owners fix their car's problems.
I hope to learn from other owners' experiences so that I can apply this knowledge to my '89 Chrysler LeBaron coupe and help other owners solve their problems economically so they can keep these good older vehicles on the road.
While there are many different domestic models from Chrysler Corp. they have relatively few different engines and there is much mechanical overlap in their chassis designs. The engineering of the electrical systems is very similar as well.
I was raised as a Chrysler 'kid' when my Dad bought a new '41 Dodge and used it to haul our family around Chicago during the war years. I recall one reason he bought a Chrysler product was he thought that Corp. was more non-discriminatory in its employment practices, compared to GM or Ford. He never bought anything but Chrysler and now I have inherited his last car.

Hi Charles, Sorry for the delay in responding. Without fault codes it is difficult to be sure why this is happening. But one of the more common causes is that the exhaust gas recirculation valve is fouled
Try using the ignition key to get a fault code readout: turn it "on-off-on-off-on and leave on" doing that in 5 seconds or less elapsed time. Then watch the odometer window to see if the mileage reading
Hi Shelby, The next time is stops flowing, check under the dash where the air distribution housing is located. At the right end of it, on the underside is where the blower housing is located, If fact
Hi Mike, My manual doesn't show the drain, but in general there is a condensate collection pan which is ported through the fire wall directly under the HVAC box and it appears as a hole in the firewall/floor
Hi Tom, The upper timing belt cover on the front of the engine is held in place by a bolt at the noon position and a bolt at 3 o'clock position. Once you remove that you should be able to inspect the
