1990 Chrysler LeBaron Problems
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.
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.
3.0L engines may develop an excessive oil consumption issue. Blue oil smoke may be noted from the exhaust during deceleration conditions (high engine vacuum). Our technicians tell us that this condition can be caused by valve guides dropping out of position. Updated valve guides with a revised snap ring grove are available to correct this issue.
A tappet/lash adjuster noise may be noted from 3.0L engines. Our technicians tell us that proper testing of the valve lash adjusters should be performed before replacing any parts. A full crankcase of clean engine oil is necessary before determining if any lash adjusters are bleeding down and causing a noise concern.

1990 Chrysler LeBaron Reviews
This is about an '88 not a '90 LeBaron turbo. It recently indicated no to low oil pressure on the gauge but not on the warning light or dip stick. After a couple of days of no problem driving, it refused to start in an auto parts store parking lot. It has spark but no fuel pressure. A check of the pump relay doesn't show input juice. What do I check and in what sequence?
My car is actually an 89 but the list only goes to 1990. It has over 130,000 miles on it. I bought it new. It is a convertible and I have replaced the top once. The drive train is remarkable, the ride is dependable. It has a 2.5 liter engine with a turbocharger and runs great. Uses no oil but is leaking a little tranny fluid around the axle housings. I will have the struts replaced tomorrow and it should be good for another 100,000. Great machine.
