Question about 2001 Chrysler Concorde

2001 (3.2) Concorde hard starting

A stated the car sometimes starts hard...other times it fires first turn. Engine light code P0304 #4 cylinder misfire. Changed plug AND coil. Problem still persists intermitently.

Car runs great after starting, but has sometimes made some smoke after starting engine more than normal without running (assuming too much fuel in cylinder).

Any ideas?

    2001 concorde 3.2 ltr  
    1st start of Day Fine,.. after car sits for about an hour,..starts on 3rd try..
    Car starts right up after sitting for half hour or less.
    Had a misfire in cyl #5 replaced coil and plug but still no change in starting issue.  
    I have a remote starter in car and disconnected it,..think its part of prob? Was in when I got the car,..might be hooked up incorrectly? 


    Read somewhere about corrosion on headlamp connection,..that could cause misfires? one of my headlamps is being tempermental and i gotta give it a tap to go on "like the Fonze" aaaaaaye!  Anyways gonna check that out...

    the instrument panel light goes off when engine starts, and tachometer reads zero. Then as you drive suddenly everything will start working normal. This happens intermittently throughout.

Put BG 44K fuel cleanerin your gas tank, also add 1 bottle of Napa Thermo-Aid to the same tank of gas. Your engine light should go out in a hour or so with some driving. CLEARED MINE UP!

I have a 95 Chrysler Concorde upon start it hakes and is very rough on idle. when i accelerate it chugs like it doesn't want to accelerate.the check engine light is not on.


Sounds as if there is one or more cylinders misfiring. Possible defective ignition coil/spark plug/s/ or ignition wires. IS the vehicle blowing black smoke out the tail pipe? If so, another possibility could be an over fuel situation caused by a defective sensor or leaking fuel pressure regulator. My guess would be a mis fire causing the engine to not fire on all cylinders

Engine timing may be off. Also make sure that all of your spark plugs are firing., and that your fuel delivery components are working properly.

2001 won't start. turns over but doesnt even act like its firing. sometimes there is a smell of gas like it is flooded. started back in jan when it was cold. replaced battery and spark plugs to no...


check the color of your spark if it is blue your good if orange replace coil dependig on your setup and if you have 1 coild or 8 coils you many have to check each cylinder seperate just pull out spark plug replace the spark plug wire have someone try to start car and lood at color of spark i should note dont hold the wire just let it rest close by

if that is ok replace your crankshaft postion sensor as it tells the cars ecu when and to what cylinder to fire spark to faulty crankshaft postion sensors 99 percent of the time wont allow car to start or very hard starts the other 1 percent

if it helps please leave good review 4 thumbs

2001 Chrysler 300M Engine Light on all the time


Hello, my engine light was on for a VERY LONG time and everytime I got it checked no one could tell me what the problem was because things always checked out fine. The "code" says its a loose gas cap or something, but it wasnt that. My 300M also was having A HARD TIME STARTING UP for about 8 months and leaking coolant for about a month. I finally found a mechanic who knew what he was doing; 1. Leaking Radiator 2. Coolant found in #2 or #3 cylinder. The cause of this was a busted HEAD GASKET. If your 300M has trouble starting and the Engine light stays on have a mechanic check your engine for a busted head gasket and see if all your cylinders are firing correctly. I had to pay $2600 for a new Head Gasket, Radiator and all new hoses plus labor. CRYING!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 2001 300M 130K - very well kept. Stuff happens...

Car won't start after cylinder head was put on, turns over but won't fire


Have the VALVE timing checked

Also have the ignition timing checked.

Make sure there are no error codes from a check engine light on.

2001 audi a4 CEL came on


I would start with the cylinder 4 spark plug and make sure it look good and is firing correctly.  After that I would look either at the final coil, ignition module and then o2 sensor.  These problems are so hard to diagnose and are trial and error so much of the time.

Engine light blinking in my Mazda MPV


A BLINKING ENGINE LIGHT INDICATES AN ENGINE CYLINDER IS MIS-FIRING. HAVE THE TROUBLE CODES TESTED TO DETERMINE WHICH ONE. DO NOT DRIVE THIS WAY AT HIGH SPEEDS AS IT MAY OVERHEAT THE EXHAUST SYSTEM AND CREATE A FIRE HAZARD.

1999 Dodge Intrepid Dies while driving and sometimes won't start


I could very well be the TPS throttle position sensor acting up. I had a very similar situation on a 99 Concorde with the same engine in it in my shop today. Go to a shop that is able to do a data stream on the engine. What it is, is they hook up a scanner and have the ability to watch all the sensors as the car starts/runs.
