Question about 1998 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

98 chrysler concorde wont start, and when it does, it bogs down

My car wont start.. when i do get it started and go to accelerate, give it gas to take off, it bogs down like it is not getting power, then once i get past 20rpms it drives o.k until i slow down or try to speed up then it bogs again. I took it to autozone they checked it, and the code it read out is P0340 probable causes #1 cam sensor defective #2check connector and wiring to sensor and #3 engine mechanical condition-timimg belt/chain out of time.. after they did the diagnostic check on it , it did not want to start at all. finnaly got it started drove home and parked itsomesay it could be the sensor, or the timimg could be out. I dont know about cars and would hate to spend money on it for work that is not needed.. any answers would be greatly appreciated

Why wont my car accelerate?


If you have an overdrive transmission the direct drive clutch may not be releasing. Have the trouble codes read to see if the computer or a sensor is starting to fail.

My 88 toyota camry wont accelerate when i step on the gas pedal


tests:

cruise at say 45mph ok?

these test , are the KEY tests.

96 Chrysler Concorde ran out of gas put gas in now it wont start


If you ran out of gas you may need to bleed the injectors for air in the line. You can find the bleeder valve on the fuel Rail. It looks like a tire valve stem. Have someone start or ttry to start the motor over while you hold it down to see if any air is comeing out. Continue to hold untill all the air is out and nothing but fuel is flowing. By this time the engine should be running.

I have a 98 Concorde


You need to check the linkage. Under the car, the section that connects the gear shift stick to the transmission rods.
