SOURCE: oil leak on 95 chrysler concorde. 3.5

What you need to do is steam clean engine compartment making sure to cover Distributor/coilpacks with plastic bags to make sure that they stay dry...Do this at a self serve coin wash....Prior to the steam clean spray engine degreaser on oil pan and block from under the vehicle...Once you are satisfied that engine is clean drive vehicle home and park it....Put a big piece of cardboard under vehicle as to locate proximity where leak is coming from(ie; location of drip marks on cardbord to possible places oil could leak...The reason for the cleaning first is because if you have oil all under your vehicle when it heats up it will drip from any where and this method will isolate leak....the most probable places are the pan gasket , drain plug (make sure there is a rubber gasket on plug), valve cover, Distributor( if applicable), oil filter , sending unit, and of course crank, cam seals...Remember that oil leaks are caused by back pressure in the system and more times than not all starts from a vehicle that has been neglected and has clogged pcv valve (positive crankcase ventillation) if you still cant determine where leak is coming from you will have to take it to a repair shop and have them do a die test....make sure it is a shop that you trust cause as you know oil leaks are very frustrating .....Good Luck

SOURCE: I have a 2000 chrysler concorde that the engine light just popped on - the error codes are po302, po420, po340

P0302-cylinder #2 misfire detected
P0420- catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
P0340-No cam signal at PCM.
The Cam sensor most likely needs to be replaced first. Clear the codes after that and drive and see what comes back on.

SOURCE: evap control system gross leak

Okay, the code you got must be po455, the evap system is a system that is sealed or open and its for the fuel tank vapors, the computer controls it and if the computer closes the vent valve to seal the system and doesnt see the system build vac or pressure it turns on the light, this system takes the fumes from the tank and filters in through a carcoal canister and then it reburns it or releases it into the air after its filtered, this system is to help the ozone . you will not notice any diffrent driving just the light to tell you there a problem, a gross leak just means its looses vac fast, the most common reason for this may be the gas cap is loose or off, check the gas cap first, if its loose then tighten it and you will need to drive about 100miles depending on the type of driving you do, this will reset the light, if the cap is on and is tight then you may have a bad vent valve or a broken vacuum hose, this is not dangerous and wont leave you stuck on the road but i would have it checked to see what the problem is, this is only if its not the gas cap, heres a diagram to help you under stand it better, hope this is helpful have a good day.johnjohn2_75.gif

I have 2000 Montana. Service Eng light on, a check says: P0440 -- evaporated emission cntrl system small leak/low flow condition. Explanation: defective or loose fuel cap, evvap canister or hose cracked-...

P0440 small evap leak, If it was purge at fault the PCM would give you a purge failure code, If it was that vacuum leak you are hearing you would of have lean bank code, anything with the evap in the engine compartment is purge,the back where the fuel tank is or the canister is evap. so you have evap problem,slow leak a broken hose would be gross leak detected. as for electrical it would be solenoid evap.fix the gas cap. 3_17_2012_9_11_41_pm.jpg

Engine error lite P0465

Replacing the EGR valve, its actuator, or your DPFE sensor could all be at fault. I would probably start with the valve itself since it's an EGR leak code. Your gas cap was a wasted repair. The gas cap would cause a P0441 or 445 evap code, but not an EGR code.
