Question about Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

The Coolant Outlet Connector is leaking & has to be replaced. This is a 2.7L 2002 Concorde. Does anyone know the procedure to replace this? I already have the part, but it looks like I have to remove the upper intake manifold.

You don't have to remove the upper intake lossen all the manifold bolts and lift the manifold just enough to get the water outlet out a couple of swivel sockets are good for that job.

Just changed the PLASTIC INTAKE on 2002 Ford Explorer its now has service engine soon. Pulling codes P0171, P0174, P0203. Does anyone know what this could be?


Check your work for vacuum leaks,can't have any

Replace the front oxygen sensors, if they have 100,000
miles on them That is the 171&174 along with vacuum leaks
& worn out slow sensors

PO203 ---is a #3 injector issue

Heater on 1995 Chrysler Concorde stopped heating. Replaced water pump and thermostat. Blows semi warm air out of one dash vent and pure cold out of other dash vent. Does anyone know codes to reset?


there are no reset codes, did you bleed the air out of the cooling system? if not do this procedure, if that doeasn't fix it u have a failed air temperasture control blend door motor actuator.
The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling systeml ,
