What oil should be used in a 1994 Chrysler Concorde with a 3.3 engine? What weight oil? How many quarts?

Hello, first if the car has over 75,000 miles you should use high mileage oil. If memory serves correct i believe they take 4.5 quarts of oil. buy 5 and add 4 then start the engine and let it run for about 30 seconds then check the dipstick and add accordingly. it is winter so you should tend to run a lighter weight oil. Again this all depends on how many miles the engine has, under 100,000 5w30 and higher than 100k use 10w30. But be sure to change the filter and not ignore it because it is just as important as the oil. Hope this helps and answered your questions. good luck

If it hasn't been run for 5 or more years here is a brief checklist: Oil must be changed (3,000 miles or 3 months whichever comes sooner) Change radiator coolant Check transmission fluid (may be low from evaporation over extended period of time.) Empty the gas tank (yes, gasoline goes bad just like anything else.) Inspect anything rubber, this includes all the boots etc you mentioned.  rubber tends to go bad over time, you should also have a chemical test done on the engine to ensure the head gasket is healthy. Best of luck!
