1990 Dodge Shadow Problems

Updated Idle Air Control Valve

4 Cylinder engines may exhibit an erratic idle with the Check Engine Light illuminated. These conditions are most commonly present during cold engine operation in rainy weather. Our technicians  tells us that there is an updated idle air control valve available to correct this concern.

Engine Vacuum Leaks

4 cylinder engines may develop driveability issues and illuminate the Check Engine Light due to engine vacuum leaks. These vehicles use plastic vacuum lines which can become brittle due to heat and age. Care should be taken when replacing these lines as some may have a restrictor orifice molded inside. If lines are replaced without including the restrictors driveability issues will remain.

Corrosion at Coolant Temperature Sensor

4 Cylinder engines, with a hard starting condition when cold and illumination of the Check Engine Light may have corrosion build up on the engine coolant temperature sensor. Our technicians tell us that the coolant sensor and pigtail should be replaced to correct this issue.
