If you have had a fire that has damaged the electrical wiring then it is more than likely shorted out a lot of sensors . Maybe if you run a fault code reading it will give you some idea of what units are failing. I may suggest a wiring harness from the wreckers but it will be determined by the codes if that is feasible.

I have a 02 Grand caravan that has new radiator, termostat, one new fan. the temp gauge goes up to max hot the drops right back down in seconds. what could be the problem?


it could be you have an air lock in the cooling system
remove the rad cap from the rad, start the engine and let it run until the coolant drops (add to fill it back up) or until the coolant boils out of the rad spout.

maybe pull the heat sensor. -replace it OR clean it off, reinstall it.

How to bleed power steering system to a 1997 chrysler sebring


Very simple!!! I posted this under how to bleed the steering system in the "Tips" section....you can do this yourself and is very easy.

Sebring Coupe And Avenger
  1. Check the power steering fluid level, and add if necessary.

Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, DEXRON II automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle to lift the front wheels off the ground.
  2. Manually turn the pump pulley a few times.
  3. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and to the right 5 or 6 times.

If bleeding is attempted with the engine running, air will be absorbed in the fluid. Bleed only while cranking the engine.

  1. Disconnect the ignition high tension cable and, while operating the starter motor intermittently, turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and right 5-6 times for 15-20 seconds. During the bleeding procedure, make sure the fluid in the reservoir never falls below the lower position of the filter.
  2. Connect the ignition high tension cable, then start the engine and allow it to idle.
  3. Turn the steering wheel left and right until there are no air bubbles in the reservoir. Confirm that the fluid is not milky and that the level is up to the specified position on the dipstick. Also confirm that there is very little change in the fluid level when the steering wheel is turned. If the fluid level changes more than 0.2 inches (about a 1/4 inch), the air has not been completely bled. Repeat the process.

    // // 0) preLoad.src = ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_ImageArray[i]; } ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.lastIndex = 26; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.populateLog = theForm.elements['ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_PopulateLog']; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.treeViewID = 'ctl00$cphLeft$chRepairTreeNav$tvTOC'; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.name = 'ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data'; //]]> var _strTreeScrollHidName = 'ctl00_hidTreeScrollPos'; c17hydro_19.gif

      Check whether or not the fluid level changes between when the engine is running and when it is stopped

    Hi, I have a 1998 2door accent 130i. Starting fine as usual. as warm up progresses I have what sounds like ignition missfireing until temp meter just starts to show temp increase. Then no more missing and...


    yes you hit the nail right on the head there,, its the tem sensor playing you up, its telling the car's computer its warm when its still cold and it cuts back the fule like pushing in the choke,,, this causes the engine to miss fire and lack power till its warm change the sensor
