1994 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.

Is it possible to adapt the switching moment of the automatic gear box to allow the engine speed less.
I really like this car, as do my friends.
I actually have a 1987 2Dr. 2.5L (4cyl.). My aunt had it until she couldn't drive anymore and few years later passed away. I've been driving it ever since. I got it in 2004 with only like 35k miles. :D Hard to believe I know. Now in 2010 and almost up to 70k miles. I take very good care of it and only a short list of issues: engine has a slight knock, headliner is starting to come undone but only a little, the headlight cover motor is broke, I've had to replace the mufflers (yes they're two mufflers), and the dome light switch for the passenger door doesn't work. Other than it goes through a little bit of oil (what can you expect she's 20 somethin years old _ respect the ladies:D); not a single other problem for a vehicle that has spent it's whole life in Michigan.. got me through high school and now almost through college. GREAT CAR!! My cousin got an 1991 with 170k miles when she was in high school and now has over 220k and all she has had to do is replace the mufflers too. GREAT CARS !!! Even if they have a ton of miles.
great once you figure out the cooling sytem the radiator for this was to small replace it with a bigger radiator and all the problems will be gone
