My girlfriend's 95 concorde was having a problem that sounds like that. Some times when she started the car, the heater control console would not turn on but the heater would turn on full blast. I fixed it by replacing the control console with one that i picked up from the junk yard. Hope this helps you

SOURCE: how do you replace the egr valve in a 1997

Chrysler Concorde 1993-1997 3.5L MFI 6cyl
Exhaust Gas Recirculation System

This system reduces the amount of oxides of nitrogen (NO x ) in the exhaust by allowing a predetermined amount of exhaust gases to recirculate and dilute the incoming fuel/air mixture. The diluted air/fuel mixture reduces peak flame temperature during combustion, which in turn inhibits the production of Nitrogen oxides. The principal components of the system are:
- EGR tube (connects a passage in the intake manifold to the exhaust manifold)
- EGR valve
- Electronic EGR Transducer
- Vacuum hoses

Component and System Testing

  1. Check the condition of all of the EGR system hoses and tubes for leaks, hardening or kinks on the rubber hoses. Repair and correct these conditions before proceeding any testing.
  2. Be sure that the hoses at both of the EGR valve and EGR valve control are connected to the proper fittings.
  3. Be sure the electrical connector is firmly attached at the valve control.
  4. To check the EGR system operation, connect the DRB III scan tool or equivalent to the 16-way data link connector. The data link connector is located on the lower edge of the instrument panel near the steering column. Follow the scan tool instructions.
  5. After checking the system with the DRB III scan tool, proceed to the EGR valve leak and control tests, then repair as necessary.

Removal & Installation
EGR Valve and Transducer


EGR valve and transducer assembly-3.5 engine


The EGR valve attaches to the back of the cylinder head-3.5L engine


Loosen, but do not remove, the EGR tube to intake manifold screws

The EGR valve attaches to the rear of the right cylinder head.
  1. Remove the vacuum tube from the electric EGR transducer solenoid. Inspect the vacuum lines for cracking, poor seal due to hardness, or other problems. Replace with new hoses if necessary.
  2. Remove the electrical connector from the solenoid.
  3. Slide the transducer up and out of the mounting bracket.
  4. Loosen, but do not remove, the EGR tube to the intake manifold screws.
  5. Remove the EGR tube lower screws at the valve.
  6. Remove the EGR valve and transducer.
  7. Clean both gasket surfaces and check for any signs of leakage or cracks. Replace the components if any such damage is found or if the valve fails the tests.

To install:
  1. Loosely install the EGR valve and a new gasket onto the cylinder head.
  2. Using a new gasket, attach the EGR tube to the valve and tighten the screws to 95 inch lbs. (11 Nm).
  3. Tighten the EGR tube to the intake manifold plenum screws to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  4. Tighten the EGR valve to the cylinder head screws to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  5. Reconnect the transducer solenoid to the vacuum fitting on the manifold.
  6. Slide the transducer into the bracket.
  7. Reconnect the vacuum lines and electrical wires to the EGR transducer.

Ok when I accelerate when it reaches35 to 60 fill like passenger front tire going to fall off but tore is fine and only wobbles when I give it has if I let off gas pedal wobble stops

Sounds like a simple case of wheel needs balancing. Take to a wheel shop and get both front wheels balanced. Only a few units of any currency...£ $ Euros...
If still have same problem it may be the rim is buckled, the shop will spot that right away though.
Look out too.....that sort of problem shakes the suspension arms and ball joints, check them for play too.

Why does it start to shake at around 50 MPH only when the accelerator is pressed?

Do you notice any check engine lights coming on the dash when this happens, also has the vehicle had any recent repairs or any reason why this may be happening? Any input from you is helpful. I will check my resources and see what we can find out. Please advise

Car shaking when accelerating, also new squeaking sound when accelerating

pt cruiser love to brake the lower front engine mount. the front of the engine is actually the passenger side under the belts (front wheel drive engine,s sit sideways) the mount itself is cracked or the rubber insert is wiped out, you need to remove the wheel and the plastic splash guard to see it

While driving the car wobbles. feels like the front passenger tire is about to fall off.

There are several possible causes for this:
  1. Tires out of balance
  2. Bad wheel bearing(s)
  3. Bad tie rod ends
  4. Bad strut(s)
  5. Problematic steering box
Any of these could be the root of your problem. A trip to a brake shop or tire store should be able to narrow down the list with a free check.

1997 Ford Aerostar...rattle in front wheels...rattle stops when I step on the brakes... Also...vibration when I accelerate and when I slow down.

Hello, it sounds like you have a possible wheel bearing or brake problem. first support the van on jackstands and shake the front tires, if you feel alot of play in the wheel bearings they may need to be tightened up, this is done by using a torque wrench to set the bearing load, if you need to get the torque sequence it can be found in the repair manuals at auto parts stores. if you shake the wheels and it feels tight with no excessive play it may be a brake issue, you need to look at the backing plate to make sure it isnt rubbing on the rotor.
