Question about 2000 Chrysler Concorde
Approximately four months ago I had a mechanic overhaul the motor on my 2000 Chrysler Concorde. After picking up the car I noticed that shifting the automatic lever in/out of gear seemed difficult. I took the car back to the mechanic and he stated that the shifting cable has probably became scarred or dry inside the cable itself and just needed to be replaced. The cable is about $90.00 and I am mechanically inclined only a small amount but was wondering how difficult the cable was to replace and what repair manual would explain the process the best.
Thanks in advance
Don't do it yourself. You would have to have the car on a hoist to do the work, as so much of what has to be done is out of sight and out of reach even if you were to jack up the car on stands. I had the shifter cable changed on my 1998 Intrepid ES, which had never seen snow or ice (I'm from Ontario), as all winters were spent in Florida. Besides changing the cable, the interlock has to be adjusted, and without the proper instruction, you would have nothing but problems, and probably would not be able to turn your key in the ignition switch. The total cost (at the dealer) for parts and labour cost me $286.16 U.S. tx. incl.The only good manual to explain even part of the procedure is the Chrysler shop manual ($96.00 ). Get the cable changed before it seizes up altogether, or you break the shifter lever etc. trying to force it. Hope this helps you. Regards Al Waters
