Question about 1998 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

Very hot car.

I have a 1998 Chrysler Concorde that is overheating. While driving my car I noticed the temperature gauge rising to hot. I went home looked under the hood and noticed that the hose leading to the reservoir had become loose. Reconnected the hose, added the correct coolant, and thought everything was fine. Now it is still running hot and the cooling fan will not come on. Do I need to replace the cooling fan.

I'd test the fan by connecting it directly to the battery to verity it is functioning. If it is, check the relays that control the fans they should be located in the fuse box in the engine bay. If the relays are ok the only other thing that could be causing the problem is the temp sensor on the radiator.

Have a 1998 Chrysler Concorde with 134,000 miles. About 2 months ago it started stalling intermitently. Would stall and I could restart immediately. Now it stalls once every trip at a certain engine temp....


your car problem is overheating, some car model like yours is designed to shut-down engine when engine temp. rise so as to avoid frying the engine. your engine overheating problem is attributed by one of these factors:
1. check or refill radiator water if less
2.check radiator cooling fan operation-if damaged pls. change or check the electrical system.
3. damage/ worn water pump-if damage pls. change the water pump.
4. check for any coolant leak somewhere the coolant line-pls. rectify the leak.
5.worn coolant reservoir cap- change if damaged.
6. clogged radiator-if clogged pls. change it.
7. damaged thermostat valve.

Problem with this is that it could be a number of things, have ur water pump checked, open the radiator and see if there is water running through it, a bad or plugged thermostat, in this case it does sound like a blown head gasket. id suggest flushing the radiator with some cleaner that u can buy at the store and check n see if ur thermostat is stuck, hope for the best and expect the worst

How do you check freon in 99 chrysler concorde a/c is on but blowing hot air


You need to hook up a gauge on the service ports. They have small pocket ones at the parts store. Rule of thumb is the pressure with car off, should be about the same as ambient temperature.

The temperature gage is slow rising like it normally does.


Sounds to me like you have a bad thermostat. If you know how to change it you can give it a shot. If you dont know what I'm talking about, take your car in to a mechanic and tell em to have a look at your thermostat.

Temperature gauge is up and down


Sounds like youve noyiced the first sign of a failing thermostat.Its now taking more heat to open the thermostat or its jamming on the slide when it opens and closes.Good luck with it and pay special attention to your temp gauge until its replaced.

Overheating


I think you have made a correct diagnosis. The loss of power and water from exhaust all point that way.
