Chrysler Problems

Key May Not Start Car or Release From Ignition

Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.

Rear Differential/Axle Seals are Prone to Leaks

Rear differential and axle seals are prone to repeated leaks.

Ticking Noise From Engine

The engine may develop a ticking noise, often caused by a broken retaining pin on the rocker arm shaft. When the pin breaks, the shaft can spin blocking the oil passage the rocker arms (which causes the ticking noise). The rocker arm shafts, rocker arms, and pedestals (sold as a kit) are commonly replaced in order to correct this condition.

So we put a new starter in and then about a week later it wouldn't start again, so back it went to ...
