Question about 1988 Chrysler LeBaron
1988 Chrylser Convertible, 2.2 turbo, automatic. I've tried doing the computer diagnostic and it blinks out 17, per the chart, that is knock sensor..but all the charts I can find indicate they are not for turbo engines.
The problems I am having are:
1. Will a headlight motor from a 1990 LeBaron work in a 1988?
2. When the car is in gear and you are stopped (such as at a stop sign) it acts as though it is going to kill (and has on occassion). We've adjusted the idle a bit and that seemed to help but I don't just want to put a band aid on something that needs to be corrected.
3. When taking off from a stop sign (only when the car has just been started), when you accelerate it's almost like the car (gear) slips before it actually goes into gear to take off. This only happens like at the first or second stop sign after leaving the house, it seems to correct itself within 6 blocks of driving.
Perhaps one problem has something to do with the other? I'd appreciate any help anyone can give on any of these things.
Problem 1 check the motors side by side
if the operation and mounting is the same more than likely will
problem 2 put the hand brake on and start the car, place in gear if it idles ok then put your foot on the brake --if it plays up it is a vacuum leak in the brake booster
problem 3-- gm has a policy of not changing transmission oil
if the car has more than 100,000miles on it , I would suggest taking it to an accredited transmission specialist shop, have the bands and clutch packs adjusted and a transmission oil change done

assuming you have checked the trans oil and it is full, it sounds like you need to take it to a good trans shop and have it looked at. it could be something simple or something major and expensive

SOURCE: diagram for right rear brake
it's a standard leading trailing bendix brake system, small shoe to the front, larger shoe to the rear. The spring are ease. THE springs that look the same go behind the shoes, the biggest spring goes at the top of the brake assembly, and the spring thats medium goes on the bottem. Don't forget the horse shoe clip to the e-brake cable. The adjustment peice goes near the top. Adjust it all the way and spin the drum while you use the mopar adjustment tool to set the e-brake adjust ment. you should get 1/2 to one full rotation before the drum drum stops spinning. don't forget to gravitey bleed your brake (open the rear bleed screws at the same time, then the front).

SOURCE: I have a '88' Chrysler
the voltage regulator on that old of a chrysler should still be internal (inside the alternator). it could be just bad alternators, i've ran into many endless amounts of defective alternators. the most was 7 in a row on one vehicle from two different parts suppliers. otherwise it could be bad wiring, loose connections, burnt contacts, or a bad short.
