Question about 2003 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

Shakes and cuts off

For about a week now my fan kicks on automatically when I start my car. Then today when I went to start my car it cranked then shook for about 30 seconds. I was able to drive it but it seem to be running hard. Then about 20 minutes later I went to start my car it started and cut off. This happened three times. On the fourth attempt I held the gas for a few seconds and the car stayed running long enough to make the 10 mile drive home. No lights came on the dash board. However the gauge was halfway between cold and hot. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!

    Plugs aren't due till 100K I believe. Maybe one of your sensors (cam or crank) are going bad, Could be a timing problem as well as you are not to the mileage when it is due, but the time.

Radiator cooling fans stopped working 1998 ford contour 2.5 liter


some of you might be familiar with me as i asked a couple questions about this particular car's transmission last week. its a 1998 ford contour GL. equipped with a 2.0 liter zetec 16 valve 4 cylinder and a 4 speed automatic transmission. i bought the car last week to fix it and sell it. so, today i finished giving it a mild tune up. ive changed the oil and filter, transmission fluid, fuel filter, air filter, added lucas transmission stop slip, and fuel injector cleaner. so, after finishing up the transmission fluid change, i let the car idle for about 10 minutes until it got up to its normal operating temperature. then it started to overheat, then its temperature went back down into the normal range, but yet it was too close to the hot range for comfort. i turned the heater all the way on and it didnt make too much of a dramatic difference. as i looked over the engine compartment, and felt the upper radiator hose to see if the thermostat had opened up fully, i noticed that the electric radiator cooling fans werent on at all. so, im assuming that thats what the problem is. my question for you is: besides checking the fuses, what else is there to look for to see why the car's cooling fans arent kicking on? im still really unfamiliar with fords late model cars. im pretty fed up with this one already. thanks for your input.

I had the thermostat housing replaced and coolant system flushed and now my car is overheating


It sounds like the fan is bad. Cars with a/c usually have two fans, so when you turn on your a/c that fan kicks on cooling the fluid/engine. And even if the fan is working it might not be working at full capacity. know more about diagnostic tools from http://www.obd2express.co.uk

Car overheating


Good chance. The temp sensor in the radiator could not be reading correctly. Or the fan control module is on its way out.

u have a leaking head gasket, the fan is on because there is air pockets in the cooling system caused by combustion gases leaking in, the rough run is coolant getting into the cylinders.

Car shakes when trying to start and doesn't turn over


  1. hold gas pedal to floor while trying to start. do not pump pedal.
  2. holding pedal to floor is how you start a flooded f.i. engine

check your fuel pressure. also look in your owners manual for the fuel pump inertia switch sometimes they can trip by being kicked or bumped. it is designed to cut fuel off in case of accident.has a reset button usually located in trunk or rt side kick panel
