Engine Will Not Crank With Clutch Engaged, Or May Crank Without Clutch Engaged

The engine may crank over with the clutch pedal not depressed, or the engine may not crank over with the clutch pedal depressed. The clutch ignition interlock switch will be replaced to correct this problem.

Failure of Component May Cause Clutch to Not Release

On certain vehicles equipped with a 6 speed transmission. The clutch master cylinder rod may break. Which will cause a condition of no clutch pressure, thus no clutch release. The Chrysler recall # is F22

Transmission May Not Hold in Park Position

On certain automatic transmissions, the cup plug that retains the park pawl anchor shaft may be improperly installed. If the shaft moves out of position, the vehicle may not be able to achieve "park" position. If this occurs and the parking brake is not applied, the vehicle may roll, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the transmission and install a bracket to ensure the park pawl anchor shaft is retained in the proper position. This recall is expected to begin on November 28, 2005. The Chrysler recall number is E14.
