Chrysler LeBaron Problems

Engine Start and Stall and/or Transmission Stuck in Second Gear

Vehicles may develop a start and die out condition or a transmission that defaults to second gear. Our technicians tell us that the transmission control module (TCM) may be at fault and require replacement. If the TCM is replaced the pinion factor should be reset and the quick learn procedure performed.

Engine Oil Leaks

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.

Connector issue with speed sensor

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.

Chrysler LeBaron Questions

Why is my 91' Chrysler Lebaron dinging and sometimes trying to lock the doors. (1 answer)

It's been getting worse and worse. A week ago, it was dinging probably once in ten minutes. Now, it's more like every ten seconds. What's the problem? I thought it might be the speed sensor but I'm not sure.

I had an engine put in my 1989 lebaron. It still surges and I'm out of options (1 answer)

The car was made in California, but the guy put in a non-California engine. I put new spark plugs, hoses, filters, and everything else I could touch on it. It surges on acceleration, only going up to 20rpm

Chrysler LeBaron Recalls

Hood Opens While Driving

The secondary hood latch may not secure the hood properly when closed, and could allow the hood to open unexpectedly while driving. Dealers will adjust the secondary hood latch to allow the latch assembly to properly engage when the hood is closed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Owner's Manual Door Lock Operation Information In Error

The inside door handle will open locked doors. The owners manual is printed in error, indicating that a locked door will not open until the lock knob is opened first. Chrysler notified and corrected owners manuals in 1992 to resolve this concern.

Front Seat Belt Latch Sticks And Fails To Secure Belt

The front seat belts may not buckle and latch securely. Dealers will replace defective buckles free of charge to resolve the concern.

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?
Is it possible to adapt the switching moment of the automatic gear box to allow the engine speed less.
i have a 1993 with over 200,000 miles. Everything is good except the "dome" lights don't work and the big issue - after we drive it for 40 minutes or so when it is near 80 degrees - the engine begins to cut out until it just quits. It seems to be a fuel issue but after you let it sit for about 20 minutes it starts up and is fine for awhile. I took it to the garage - didn't act up for them. ...
