1992 Plymouth Acclaim Problems

On 4cylinder engines, engine oil leaks are common from the valve cover gasket, cam plug, and cylinder head gasket.

The heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system may  change to defrost mode under heavy engine load conditions when low engine vacuum is produced. This can often be corrected by installing an additional vacuum check valve with reservoir to help stabilize the vacuum supply to the HVAC system.

A hesitation on acceleration may be caused by carbon build up on the EGR valve back pressure tube. Cleaning the tube will generally restore proper EGR system operation, eliminating the associated hesitation.
