Question about Chrysler LeBaron

1 Answer

This 3.2 lost power going up a hill and has not recovered ! It starts right up and runs like its firing on all cylinders but has low power drive . As you rev it up it sounds fine at low rpm but has a fairly loud clack with it . Compression test comes in close @ 160 Lbs on all 6 cylinders . 200K on it and the rest is good . Any ideas? Daniel

Hi, my Alfa 147 select speed losers power and revs when driving up a hill, also after driving for 30 mins it starts to heat up a little.

losing power going up hill is a sign of low cylinder compression ,that and ther over heating points to the head gasket being blown , i'd suggest getting the cylinder compressions tested and the coolant checked for any sign of contamination from the engine gases etc , this will require specialist garage equipment , keep me posted if you wish

Low end miss fire and no horsepower

If it really is a miss-fire, you should have a check engine light on and codes for the cylinders.
I would check for that and check the fuel pressure.
You did replace the fuel filter with the pump, right ?

I have a 1995 honda civic dx 1.5. One day i was driving and when I was going up a hill the car lost all its power and started running rough. It starts up ok but the enginge shakes real bad and has no...

try doing a fuel injector check. do this by pulling each of the cables out one at a time while the car is running. pull out the first one, if the car starts to shake even more, or turn off, then the fuel injector is good. replace the spark plug cable. repeat the steps for the rest. if the car remains does the same thing, as in starts to shake more or turn off, then the problem exists elsewhere. but, if you remove one of the spark plug cables, and the car remains the same, then you found your bad fuel injector. the only other thing that occurs to me is changing the fuel filter. it could be that the fuel filter is clogged, and when you started going up hill, the fuel pump simply couldnt push the fuel up. but the first one sounds more logical. it either sounds like it could be what you said, about one of the cylinders not working, or a loss of pressure somewhere, which would be fuel, or air. usually air is alot less likely to cause problems like this than fuel. hope this helps, goodluck.
