#1024 of 1272 AC and Whistling Dash Problems 1999 LXi Concorde
Jun 03, 2005 (11:01 pm)
I recently purchased a 1999 Concorde LXi after being very happy with my previous 1995 Concorde. Heres my problem ... the AC has stopped working and on certain settings I can here a whistling noise from the dashboard when running either the heater or AC (which has stopped working also). Any ideas on what to check before I take it to Chrysler? And should I take it to an AC shop instead? I am wondering wether the dash has to come off or what. Other than that it is a great improvement over the previous model (which was pretty good too!)

Concorde LXI 1998.
I don't know if my problem is similar. But here is my story.
Last December, my car didn't start. Since my battery was 4 years old, I thought it was due for a change and I went to Wal-Mart bought a new battery.
3 days later, the battery led came on, and Wal-Mart installed a new battery (covered by the warranty).
I had the same problem with this 2nd battery and at some point the car would not start at all, but would if jump started.
I tried jump starting the car using the installed battery by performing the following. I run a cable from the battery positive plug (not the positive contact which is visible at the "top of the engine", i.e. you need to remove the air filter box to access the battery), to the fuse box positive contact, and my car started.
CONCLUSION: My battery cable was bad, the one that runs from the battery positive plug to the positive contact which is visible at the "top of the engine".
I have changed this cable and I don't have the problem anymore. It cost me just 5$ (part)...
Best of luck.

I just bought a Chrysler Concorde 1999 from an auction (I was more of forced into buying it), anyways, I got it for $4000 and it has 136,000. The car's engine "looks" good, but then again I don't know anything about engines. Interestingly enough, when I started the car and moved my gear to 'D' I realized that it was really hard to do and I had to apply some force. But, the guy who sold the car said that it was a minor problem and could be easily fixed.
Anyways, just after fifteen minutes of driving the car in express way, I had to hit the brakes b/c of traffic jam, but when I let go of the brakes and hit the accelerator, the car wouldn't move. I thought the engine was down, so I tried turning off the car and turning it back on. So, I moved my gear to 'P' and I tried to get it to 'D' and accidently it went to '3' and got stuck there. I tried getting it to D or P for that matter but it wouldn't budge. My brother got really scared and tried to push the gear really hard and I don't know what happened (I think it broke) but the gear would move but the car's indicator wouldn't change from '3' to anything. So, we were stuck on the express way. The car's engine wouldn't start and we had to get it towed.
Can anyone give me suggestions of what happened, or how much will it cost. I am really worried. Please help and reply soon.

#1030 of 1272 Timing Belt Replacement?
Jun 16, 2005 (9:01 am)
I'm considering to buy a 97 Chrysler Concorde LXI (3.5L) with 75,000miles
The seller told me that he hasn't replaced the timing belt and he has no
manual to check what's the recommended milage to change it. Could anybody
do me a favor to check your manual for this? How much should I pay if I
have to replace the timing belt for this beautiful car?

#1033 of 1272 98 Chrysler Concord with Heavy Exhaust
Jun 23, 2005 (10:55 am)
I have a 98 Chrysler Concord with 123,000 miles on it. I get heavy exhaust when accelerating from a stop. probably a valve going bad (just had the pcv valvereplaced by dealer). I drive the car about 1,000 miles per month, seem to be burning about a quart of oil per 1,000 miles. Do you think the car will last another 12-15,000 miles?
