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 John, Now that you have a specific code I would forget about the egr valve. Rather focus on cylinder number 3. Check the spark plug wire from the plug to the spark coil for any sign of damage. Remove
Hi James, I am not clear as to what is the present status of the charging system. If there is still a problem tell me how it shows itself? Did you check out the wiring between the alternator and pcm based
