SOURCE: plymouth acclaim wont start,no spark,no fuel

Do me a favor and cycle the key to on, then off, then on, then off, then back to on,& leave it in the on position.(not start) Now watch & record any flashes of the check engine light. You will get a number of flashes, then a pause, then more flashes. for example: 3 flashes, pause, then 3 more, would be code 33. It will always be a 2 digit number. 2 flashes,pause then 5 flashes, is code 25. When you get 5 flashes, pause then 5 more, that's code 55 which means end of message. Get back to us with any codes that flash.

SOURCE: 94 Plymouth acclaim speedometer and dash lights wont work

Try replacing light bulbs and flasher which may correct the turn signals. Check all fuses, however as for the speedometer, the plastic clogs or wheels have run their course, If you intend to replace these, suggest you purchase a repair manual for your vehicle.

I need to replace a radiator for a plymouth acclaim 94

And check if any coolant got in the transmission. Have it professionally flushed if it did, or your transmission won't last long.

How do you remove a transmission from a 1994 plymouth acclaim?

If this is front wheel drive (most likely is; will have drive axles in front leading toward engine and tranny).

1. Raise and secure the front of vehicle on stands, and drain tranny fluid into a pan or bucket.

2. Remove tire and tranny side drive axle.

3. Disconnect all components connected to transmission (shifter cable) and any sensors, wires or wiring harnesses.

4. With a jack secure the transmission from underneath. (do not jack up tranny, merely put a very slight pressure to hold in place)

5. take out all transmission bolts that securet the transmission to the block (engine). If there is enough room, slowly lower the jack (another person secures transmission from top (keeping it balanced), and pull the transmission out. Be careful that the torque converter does not fall - it is heavy and may come out with transmission. (usually bolted to flywheel, also known as flexplate). This will have fluid as well in it, and will need to be drained (most of it).

Installation is reverse; also, if no room to drop tranny, two people can easily lift it from the top. (Cherry picker recommended.)

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
