Question about 1989 Chrysler New Yorker

1 Answer

My 1989 Chrysler New Yorker 3.0L V6 won't stay running in gear. I have replaced the fuel pump, filter, ignition wires, plugs, cap, rotor, coil. It will start right up and run when cold, but when it

Adjusting timing, general tune up "wires, plugs, cap, rotor, ignition coil, new fuel pump, filter, cleaned tank" did not reuse fuel". All fluids checked, fresh oil change, air filter.

Forgetting all you have done & why

What is or was the main issue & when did it start
& under what conditions ?

Does the thermostat open ?
Does it reach 195 or more coolant temp?
Does it go into Closed Loop? (Oxygen Sensors
in control of fuel)
Any OBD Codes in any system?
Fuel Pressure Correct as well as Volume
& under a load while driving

Sounds like you were going to say it only has a problem
AFTER it reaches operating coolant temp

SO- none of what you did appears to be related

First-- you find & resolve all problems. THEN do your
Preventative Maintenance-spark plugs,filters,etc.

Check or test the switch on the transaxle, that is for gear
selection,whatever you have there

May be the only problem you ever had or one of two problems

Only runs when cold-- in park only?
Won't run hot or cold-- in ANY gear?

Can you even drive it at all?

How about an Idle air control solenoid/valve
on or near the throttle body-got one of them?

SOURCE: 1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L.

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

SOURCE: Trying to get 1989 Lebaron

When you changed the fuel pump i presume that you put fresh gas in it ?. buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze (it soaks up water)... change the fuel filter as it is likely gumned up with fuel. after you have done this keep up with the pouring fuel in or get a can of "hard start" and be very careful with using it. Eventually it will run on it's own. I would also suggest getting a can of combustion chamber cleaner. nasty stuff but it will clean out the motor and should unstick any valves that are not closing properly. be very certain you use that outside as it does create alot of smoke. I would also presume as it has been sitting that long that you have drained and replaced the oil as well as the filter.
For a vehicle that has sat that long there will be a lot of condensation issues.

Sounds like you were throwing parts at it to solve the problem. I would be looking for vacuum leaks.
There is a part called a MAP (Manifold Pressure) sensor located about 4 inches behind the alternator, but higher than the alternator. It has a vacuum hose going to it. The hose may have a crack in it. There may be a problem with the throttle position sensor, although I would be less suspicious of it.An actual leak between the intake manifold and the cylinder head is a source of a vacuum leak. Check the ground at the back of the cylinder head for a clean and solid connection.
(on the front cylinder head, driver's side. Black wire.) There is a temperature sensor located on the intake manifold, but you need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) and the specifications to check it. Ambient temperature vs ohms. Check the simple things and leave the rest ro a pro, it'll be cheaper in the long run.

Here's a quote from amy Chilton's manual for 1980-1987.

"Several types of fuel filters are used. One is located in the fuel tank of all the vehicles and is part of the fuel guage assembly. Second is a sealed paper element, in-line unit; mechanical system- located on the engine (above the fuel pump) or electrical system- located in front of the fuel tank. Third is a paper element, in-line fuel filter/vapor separator, housed in a fuel resevoir. Normally, the in-tank filter does not require changing. If it does, the fuel tank must be removed. "
This thing you describe sounds like the typical Chrysler in-line filter of its day. It is nothing more than the same generic in-line plastic see-thru filter you buy for your lawn mower except in the 70's and 80's it was covered in metal and had a Chrysler part number. A lot of guys added an extra filter in those days, it wasn't the best system. I would remove the outlet line and turn the fuel pump on, see if you get fuel. Replace if needed.

Won't start, fuel pump runs at key on, spark at coil wire into distributor is yellow, little or no spark at plug wire ends


Sounds like bad distributor cap or rotor. If ones bad, might as well change both. Take off the cap and if there is a black color on the ends of the prongs, or on the end of the rotor, time to replace. Is it getting fuel into motor?
