You are in the Chrysler Concorde
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler Concorde, Sedan
Jun 12, 2005 (8:19 am)
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?

There may be a fuse on the cd changer itself, otherwise it woud probably be in the fuse panel inside the car or the fuse box under the hood.
#1035 of 1272 1993 PVC Valve problem?
Jun 25, 2005 (7:30 am)
I had my concorde shut down on me the other day while driving on the freeway. When I tried to re-start the engine it cranked a lot but had trouble catching. When it would catch it didn't have any power. As soon as I gave it the gas it would stall out.... After sitting for about 45 minutes I cranked it and it fire right up. it ran fine. (there were no leaks, no over heating problems. I got no noticable warning signs before it shut down. ) I've been told that the PVC Valve can cause this...
#1036 of 1272 Transmission rebuild???? please help
Jun 27, 2005 (7:28 am)
My car has been dropping into "limp mode" for about a week (94 Concorde). I have replaced both speed sensors and the TCM as well. After replacing the TCM the car would drop into limp mode even sooner than before the replacement. After I turn the key off and on (usually up to six times) it will run and shift great! Do I need a new tranny or does anyone have any other solutions? Any help is greatly appreciated. MaeJae
#1037 of 1272 "Mysterious" Problem ('93 Concorde)
Jun 30, 2005 (5:23 pm)
I'm a "poor ole widder woman" of 72 trying to deal with car repairs and repairmen for the first time in my life. My '93 Concorde has 125,000 miles on it. It has developed a problem that my service people can't seem to identify. It "stutters" or jerks. Actually, it feels like it's trying to "choke out" if that makes any sense. They've put in a new fuel filter and thought that would fix it. It didn't. Today they put new spark plugs and wires on it, but that didn't solve the problem. I'm thinking it can't be bad gas, as it's done it through several tanks bought at different dealeres. I'm taking it back tomorrow for them to check something called the "coil pack". I have no clue what that is. Thought I'd see if any of you have any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
