I need your tips/advice for DIY full service tune-up on my 04 Crossfire. I am told to concentrate on the following areas: a) plugs x 12 b) throttle body flush c) fuel injectors flushed d) emissions service e) battery terminal cleaning/service. Has anyone found a Service Manual for the Crossfire? I am looking for a step by step procedure for the above jobs. Please advise any cautions or do's & don'ts. Are any special tools needed? Appreciate any help you can provide. Regards, Red Rocket Steve
I got my manual on ebay for around $25. I wouldn't try injector maintenance. Leave to a professional. You don't want to take your car apart that much. The injector cleaners are also a scam so don't waste your money buying them to ad to your fuel tank.

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio. The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Chrysler service centre and get them to enter this code for you.
Hows your battery and connections. If the engine is turning over slow suspect the battery is the end of its life. If it turns over great then it may be time to check the tune up. Cars out of tune become hard to start in the cold. If tune up check the spark plugs first you might get off cheap.
This is not the problem I have a chrysler crossfire and experienced the same problem there is some good news if it frequently stops working for no reason the problem is most likely the RCM module has a shortage in it I fixed my crossfire and 3 others buy repairing the RCM its easy and simple any question you can email me I can give you a easy walk through to fix the problem and avoid paying hundred at the dealership it shouldn't take no more than 15 minutes to fix DIY!!
I also own a '04 Crossfire and the clatter upon start up is very common. Although I believe it is the lifters, I've been told that the Mercedes fuel injectors are the main culprit to the ticking. But like you I have been agitated by this since buying the car. Recently mine went from just a ticking to a definite top end knocking and am being told today by the dealer that it is the lifters sticking. Don't know if a valve job and lifters will resolve the initial ticking, but I have my fingers crosses considering the $1018.00 price quote.
They Are Removed From The Inside. On The Inside Of The Car Find The Opposite Side Of Where The Light Is. There Will Be Either Carpet Or A Panel There Remove That And It Will Give You Full Access To The Lights. Use A Twist And Pull Motion To Remove The Light From Its Housing Then Replace The Bulb.
Same thing happened to me. It was giving me problems starting it. It died on me at the stop sign last week. I kept driving. On Friday it shut down on me while doing 60mph on the hwy. I towed it to the nearest dealer. The said they had top replace the cranck sensor and a cam sensor. I paid $1,043.01 for that. Today I couldn't start it....
