1990 Chrysler LeBaron ProblemsEngine Start and Stall and/or Transmission Stuck in Second Gear
Vehicles may develop a start and die out condition or a transmission that defaults to second gear. Our technicians tell us that the transmission control module (TCM) may be at fault and require replacement. If the TCM is replaced the pinion factor should be reset and the quick learn procedure performed.
Engine oil leaks may develop from the following areas: Valve cover gaskets, cam plugs at rear of the cylinder head, cam seals, front crankshaft seal, and the oil filter bracket. Leaking seals and gaskets should be replaced. Due to mis-machining of the mating surfaces, as special gasket is required to correct the oil filter bracket leak.
The connector on the input and/or output speed sensors on the automatic transmission may become damaged causing intermittent loss of speed control. There are wiring repair kits available to repair this issue.

The car was made in California, but the guy put in a non-California engine. I put new spark plugs, hoses, filters, and everything else I could touch on it. It surges on acceleration, only going up to 20rpm

The car has started every time this has happened. When I try it again, starts normal.
