Will oil cause it to have a bad connection?

Probably not your problem. You have probably missed reconnecting a connector.

We need the cylinder head torque specks for a 2.4 liter engine on a 98 plymouth breeze


Fig. 1: Cylinder head bolt tightening sequence-2.0L SOHC engine


Fig. 2: Cylinder head bolt tightening sequence-2.0L and 2.4L DOHC engines

Tighten the bolts in 4 steps as follows:
a. First: all bolts to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).

b. Second: all bolts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).

c. Third: all bolts again to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).
d. Fourth: all bolts an additional 1 / 4 turn.

Do not use a torque wrench for the fourth step.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

1998 Plymouth Breeze Leaking oil. Not an immense amount, but enough that I would like to get it fixed. I have gone to many so called "experts" and well lets just say im frustrated. Some have said that it...

The head gasket has been redesigned ( a multi layered design) for the 4 cylinder. Oil leaks are common. The coolant doesn't always leak with this condition. It is far cheaper to just add oil as needed. However,the new head gasket is far better than the original. be sure to surface the head to get the best possible repair. looking into the engine compartment the leak would be on the right side of the head on the firewall side.

Valve train ticking noise 1997 cadillac catera

The cats use hydraulic lifters. Just before your next oil change, or when you are down about a litre of oil, put a litre of transmission fluid (Dextron II) into the engine and drive it about 2to 300 miles and then change the oil and filter. You should hear the valve train noise dissappear within the 1st 20 or 30 miles.

Do not overfill!!!!!

This is assuming you have a plugged hydraulic lifter(s). If you have a worn cam or worn valve train, you need to remove the heads (both) and send them to a machine shop that does heads and head gaskets, valve cover gaskets as well as any worn cams. valves etc....

Car really has to be worth it. At this point, if you love Cateras (I have 2 2001's), I would sell it the way it is and get a 00' or an 01'.

The 97' and 98's are not worth the trouble.......

Oil leak in a 98 plymouth breeze 2.0

I've had a 1990 Acclaim, a 1990 Shadow, and a 1998 Breeze, all have a head gasket leak. The Breeze was the only one to have oil leak and it was on the rear of the engine. I'd guess that's your problem.

Where is the thermostat located and how do you change it?

Open the radiator cap. The thermostat in down inside about 2 inches. You may need drain some fluid off to see it. You will have to remove the radiator cap holder, - 2 bolts to remove it. Install new unit with new gasket.

Oily coolant

yes, it is a definite sign of blown head gasket.
I did have only once a problem similar where the engine block was cracked but other than that,bet on the head gasket.
Take a coolant system pressure measurement, (if your head gasket is blown, the pressure in your coolant system would go down slowly)
