Question about 1998 Chrysler Concorde

2 Answers

Temperature gauge is up and down

As I drove my 96 Chrysler Concorde last night the temperature gauge was sometimes down at a normal operating temperature, but sometimes would go up to about 3/4 of the way toward the red zone.  Other than that it seemed to be operating normally.  What's up?

Check coolant level and make sure there is no air in the system. in my concorde i put a clear hose on the airbleed nipple and ran it back to the reservoir tank and ran the engine until there was no more air. my parents concorde started to overheat at random times and the dealer was no help in find the problem. we tested it at home and found bad head gaskets. it has been fine since changing head gaskets. pay attention to small clues, if you are loosing coolant it has to be going somewhere.

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.

97 chrysler concorde lxi wont blow hot air


before doing anything, make sure your coolant level is up to the mark on the reservoir bottle, and that the car actually reaches correct operating temperature. on this car, temperature is easy to check because there's a gauge on the dash. after warming up, the needle should be about half way up. if it isn't, replace the thermostat.

if none of those things are wrong, then there's a malfunction in one of the blend doors in the hvac box. gaining access to that is extremely involved and best left to a very experienced mechanic.

This could be leaking fuel injectors, a stuck Fuel Pump relay, and/or faulty fuel pressure regulator. Have you had any of these items checked and/or replaced? If not, it may be time to replace them. Also, check your fuel filter. If it hasn't been replaced in the last year, replace it.

Temperature gauge goes to hot and shortly later goes back to normal though car does not seem to run badly even while needle is at hot . reserve tank seems to draw antifreeze


you need a new thermostat, its sticking and causing you problems, soon it will just stay stuck, the reason the reserve keeps filling up is because of heat and pressure in the radiator

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.

Intermittently have to use charger to start.


the most common cause of this by far is lights left on by defective switchs, these include the map lights in the visors, the glove box light due to a defective switch, the trunk light and the hood light if equipped, check it at night and look for a faint glow, the other much less common cause is the alternator has a defective diode and allows a small current to pass to ground drawing the battery down..
