Question about 1985 Chrysler Laser

2 Answers

1985 Chrysler Laser non-turbo, automatic

Have replaced solenoid, air filter, changed spark plugs, DieHard battery is fully charged, and installed a new ignition time delay relay. When trying to start car, everything works - horn, lights, radio, gauges - but it won't turn over. There is a gasoline smell so I assume gas is getting to the engine. There is no click-click-click sound from the starter or ignition. Car hasn't been street driven for about 3-4 years, but has been started (though not for about 8 months). Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I blew the turbo on my 2005 pt cruiser limited ed. I replaced the entire turbo,and added new sparks...(only has 52k miles) Since then my car does not get over 65mph without feeling like its stalling...


What kind of spark plugs did you use??? Here is a list of plugs that you can use on your Turbo engine.

Champion
* Copper - stock # 440 - RE14MCC5 (OEM)
* Copper - stock # 470 - RE14MCC5 (supercedes/replaces # 440, but some catalogs same part #)
* Copper - RE16MC (supercedes/replaces RE14MCC5 and new Chrysler recommended gap is .040)

NGK
* Copper - LZTR4A-11 (supercedes/replaces RE14MCC5 and new * Chrysler recommended gap is .040)
* Copper - stock # 4306 - LZTR5A-13 (one range colder)

If you use the platinum spark plugs used on the Non-turbo engine, they will start to glow and cause misfires and can cause engine damage to saver detonations throughout the RPM cycle.

As for the over heating, you could have a blown head gasket from a severer detonation if you notice coolant and oil mixing in your engine and coolant tank. The less cause for over heating wold be a bad thermostat or a faulty radiator cooling fan, cooling fan relay or cooling fuse which is located in the engine compartment fuse box by the battery.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Will not start


your ignition relay could be bad, there are fuses and relays that feed power to the distributor, easiest way to find them would be to follow the battery leads from the battery to the coil and cap, check all the inline fuses and relays/solenoid

Replace your Fuel Filter and see if it does not Help. Even a Partially Clogged Fuel Filter will cause this Problem.

Accelerator problems


Hi,

If you have the turbo charged version, this issue refers to the "turbo dead zone" between 3500-4000 RPM. This refers to the no acceleration between these two RPMs and is caused by the time difference between the time the second turbo kicks in after the first turbo has activated. If you are referring to acceleration loss/delay below 3500 RPM, the issue is "turbo lag" which pertains to the delay in time between the stepping on the gas pedal and the 1st turbo activating.

In some other instances including non-turbo versions, the problem may be due to air leak in the intake manifold and the air cleaner. In the turbo versions, it would include the in/out junction of the blower including the clamps.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
