Chrysler Concorde Problem Reports
Report A Problem
A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).
The instrument cluster may illuminate randomly to its full brightness and/or the fuel gauge may drop to the empty position. Typically the symptoms are infrequent and the instrument cluster returns to normal operation after a few seconds. An update to the body control module (BCM) will fix this problem.
An intermittent problem with static at startup or when the radio is switched to the satellite function can be fixed by replacing the satellite digital audio receiver (SDAR).
If the exterior side view mirror glass breaks, replacement glass pieces are available from MOPAR (the automobile parts and service arm of Chrysler). It is not always necessary to replace the mirror assembly.
A trouble code stored in the body control module (BCM) can prevent warm or hot air output from the climate control system. When the cause of the trouble code is fixed, heater function should return.
When the car is accelerating, spark plug cables may cause intermittent misfires and popping sounds from the engine compartment.
A loose timing chain on early models will produce a rattle (in the front of the engine) because the chain hits the guide. The timing chain
should be replaced (the cam sprocket should always be replaced at the same time). Remove and discard the timing chain guide; on later V6 models, the guide has been eliminated.

Dodge issued a recall for fuel leaks. Dealers will reinforce the fuel rail to prevent cracking and replace the O-ring seals on the fuel rail and fuel injectors.
A problem with the PCV
system may cause excessive oil consumption or the vehicle to emit blue smoke (burning oil) at high engine speeds (RPM). Too much vacuum allows oil
to be drawn into the intake.
When shifting from Drive to Reverse (or vice versa), worn outer CV joints
may cause a clunk or clicking noise. A loose axle nut can cause the same symptoms.
