Chrysler New Yorker 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. Our technicians tell us that if the TCM is replaced the pinion factor should be reset and the quick learn procedure performed.

Transmission fluid contamination

Incorrect, worn, or contaminated automatic transmission fluid can cause shifting issues, noted mostly at speeds over 40mph. Our technicians tell us that repairs to correct this condition include changing the fluid and filter, driving the vehicle for 10miles and changing the fluid a second time.

Contamination or damage at the transmission output speed sensor

The Check Engine Light may illuminate along with erratic shifting of the automatic transmission. Our technicians tell us that oil contamination or wire terminal damage at the transmission output speed sensor could be the cause.

Chrysler New Yorker Reviews

Still own this car though reviewing as the '91 model its a 1988 the car is reliable. Was several things that had to be replaced but my Chrysler was flawless all the years both had together. I would buy another believe these cars are rare am going to drive mines until ready retiring. Never had a vehicle that was best liked my New Yorker purchased from grandma's boyfriend in 1997 with 10K miles s...
with a few mods to the suspension the vehicle is a great ride, and since it is a '93 it was due for replacement of struts and shocks, but could not get replacement air-ride shocks for the rear of the car so went with standard airshocks which made it a little stiffer ride, but still an all over great ride
kept going into limp mode, had to retrain the trans, but besides that its running fine
