SOURCE: oil leak on 95 chrysler concorde. 3.5

What you need to do is steam clean engine compartment making sure to cover Distributor/coilpacks with plastic bags to make sure that they stay dry...Do this at a self serve coin wash....Prior to the steam clean spray engine degreaser on oil pan and block from under the vehicle...Once you are satisfied that engine is clean drive vehicle home and park it....Put a big piece of cardboard under vehicle as to locate proximity where leak is coming from(ie; location of drip marks on cardbord to possible places oil could leak...The reason for the cleaning first is because if you have oil all under your vehicle when it heats up it will drip from any where and this method will isolate leak....the most probable places are the pan gasket , drain plug (make sure there is a rubber gasket on plug), valve cover, Distributor( if applicable), oil filter , sending unit, and of course crank, cam seals...Remember that oil leaks are caused by back pressure in the system and more times than not all starts from a vehicle that has been neglected and has clogged pcv valve (positive crankcase ventillation) if you still cant determine where leak is coming from you will have to take it to a repair shop and have them do a die test....make sure it is a shop that you trust cause as you know oil leaks are very frustrating .....Good Luck

SOURCE: I have a 2000 chrysler concorde that the engine light just popped on - the error codes are po302, po420, po340

P0302-cylinder #2 misfire detected
P0420- catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
P0340-No cam signal at PCM.
The Cam sensor most likely needs to be replaced first. Clear the codes after that and drive and see what comes back on.

Coolant leak

I'm not sure where the water pump is located on the 3.2 but it may be a bad seal in the water pump. If it is the water pump will need to be replaced. You might also check bottom radiator hose, it may be leaking. Also check the thermostat housing for leaks.

Under the car it looseing antifreeze a freez plug is how to replace and want look like. 2002 chrysle concorde with 2.7

Your motor has several freeze plugs. The freeze plug holes are located usually 3 per side on the block, 2 in the ends of each head and 2 in each end of the block. Determine approximately what location the coolant is running out from, feel around the block for an actual round hole/cavity in the block. They are different sizes. some as small as 1 inch diameter to as large as about 3 inch diameter. Find the cavity that is not filled, as you can stick your finger deep into the block/head.
Then measure this hole. The easiest type relacement plug is called an expansion type. It is like a rubber stopper that you tighten a bolt in the center of it to expand it/tighten it to the full diameter sealing the cavity. Found at most parts stores. They come in a variety of sizes, so you must try to get extremely close to the actual diamerter of the freeze plug hole in the block/head to make it work. Install new plug into hole pushing rubber portion in all the way until the flat metal washer part of the expansion plug contacts the block/head surface. IT MUST be flush or evenly seated in the freeze plug hole/cavity in the block/head. Tighten center nut on new plug to about 25 ft lbs. This will make the rubber part expand and seal into the hole. Refill coolant, check for leaks. In my experience, if you pop one plug, it is usually in the block first and one will be popped on both sides of the block. Feel around BOTH sides of block to verify all 6 plugs are in place! CAUSE>>
This is due to water in the coolant system freezing, due to poor coolant system maintenance. The freeze plugs pop out when the frozen water expands preventing the freezing water from cracking your block.You would be money ahead to drain/flush your system and refill with all new 50/50 antifreeze of the type recommended for your vehicle. NEVER put water in your cooling system! Use only in emergency, fix problem then drain and refill with 50/50 coolant! This will prevent this problem from reoccurring and damaging other cooling system components.

Where is the thermostat located on a 2000 chrysler concorde LX 2.7Liter


to get to the thermostat, remove the top radiator hose from the thermostat cover by removing the band clamp that holds it onto the cover. Slide the clamp down the hose, then pull the hose off the cover.

Remove the 10mm bolts that hold the thermostat cover on the intake of the Concorde and pull the thermostat cover off the engine. Inspect the cover for any cracks around the housing and around the bolt hole tabs. If you notice any cracks, a new cover should be used.

The lip that the thermostat sits on will be below the level of the radiator fluid

I hope this helps.

Where is the thermostat?

your thermostat is located on the top of your engine.
Follow your coolant line from your radiator to the engine, where it attaches to the engine there should be a bubble looking attachment under that is your thermostat.
Dont detach when your engine is hot.

Leaking coolant from a small hole located in the block right under the thermostat housing coolant inlet. we removed housing and gasket replaced gasket and installed, leaks from small hole?

water pump failure, water pump on these run off the timing chain and the timing chain runs in oil, so they could not just put a weep hole on the pump because it would go strait to the oil pan, instead they redirected the coolant from the leaking pump to just below the thermostat housing. And good luck, it's at least a 6 hour job on these. Brandon-MO
