  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the electrical harness connector from the camshaft position sensor.
  3. Unfasten the camshaft position sensor mounting bolt. There is a hole in the bracket for tool access to the sensor mounting bolt.
  4. Rotate the sensor away from the engine block.
  5. Pull the camshaft position sensor up out of the chain case cover. Do not pull on the sensor wire.
There is an O-ring on the sensor case. The O-ring may make removal of the sensor difficult. A light tap on top of the sensor prior to removal may reduce the force needed for removal. Inspect the O-ring for damage and replace if necessary.
To install:
If the sensor removed is going to be re-installed, clean off the old spacer on the sensor face. A new spacer must be attached to the sensor face before installation. If the sensor is being replaced, be sure that a paper spacer is attached to the sensor face and an O-ring is positioned in the groove of the new sensor.
  1. Apply 1-2 drops of clean engine oil to the O-ring prior to installing the sensor.
  2. Install the sensor into the chain case cover and rotate into position.
  3. Push down on the sensor until contact is made with the camshaft gear. While holding the sensor in this position, install and tighten the mounting bolt to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  4. Attach the electrical harness connector to the camshaft position sensor.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

If you decide to repair your car by yourself, first you must buy for your Car Year, Make, Model:
Hanyes Repair Manual
Based on a complete teardown and rebuilt.
The general procedure to replace the radiator is:
Open the hood, detach the front grille, plastic radiator cover, and disconnect fans wires.
Detach upper and lover radiator hose, collect and dispose properly the coolant. Detach upper radiator bracket. Take off the radiator with fans assembly. The full procedure is more than two pages, and you need more information how to flush and fill out the radiator. Repair is not impossible to be done, but a mistake may cost you dearly. If you decide to repair by yourself please do it right. If you feel uncomfortable, stop. If you feel confused stop, get more information, and restart next day fresh in the morning. This is a car dealer advising you.

Front wheel drive cars have CV joints in the axles to permit the wheel to turn for steering. The CV joint is basically a universal joint on steroids. When they ware out it can cause this type of condition.

Humming may not mean pumping up to pressure. Has anyone put a fuel pressure gauge on it to confirm its up to spec? One thing you can try, is to remove air inlet hose from air cleaner where it attaches to the throttle body. With key off, open throttle up and give a good spray of WD-40 into the throttle body. Now try to start it. If it fires up briefly then stalls, then you have a fuel delivery problem, probably fuel pump, but try changing fuel filter first, in case it's plugged, causing low pressure at engine. If you have to change the pump, you'll want to change the filter as well anyway.

Your fuel consumption will be high and if you keep driving it, you will end up needing a new catalytic converter very soon. I would have the coil module tested.

If it is only the bulb, you will need to take enough "stuff" out of the way to access the center of the reflector bowl under the hood so you can twist the bulb holder loose.
When you get all the "stuff" out of the way, use a strong light and perhaps a mirror and you will see what to do ask you progress.
If you wish to replace the whole headlight, type the make and year into the "e-bay" website, ( as I just did), and you will see them for sale.
They are pictured clearly, so you can see what it looks like before you start the job.
God bless your efforts.

1. Check that the serpentine belt is still intact and still in position over all the pulleys on the engine including the power steering pump.

2. Check the power steering fluid level. If very low or empty you obviously have a significant power steering fluid leak which could be from a ruptured flexible hose, a leaky hose connection, a leak from the power steering pump itself or leaks from the fluid seals in the steering rack. If the PS pump has been run with very low fluid it will have been pumping air and will be damaged.

3. If the PS pump itself has failed you will obviously lose PS assistance and a bad pump would need to be replaced.

4. Since you have not checked anything on the car no one here can tell you the likely source of your particular PS failure.

5. The steering wheel should still turn but if the car is not moving it will be extremely heavy and difficult to move.without PS assistance so don't attempt to drive it in its present condition.

Follow the large bundle of wires in a large harness. This attaches to the computer's electrical connector. It's usually on the drivers side above below or near the battery or mounted on a fender. Chrysler had a habit of hiding the computer under the battery box in those days. Good luck.
