    Chrysler 62TE Questions

    Believe it was the year 1986 where these new air bags laws required all children to ride in the rear seat. With more than two grand kids, could not fit three child's car seats in the year seat so necessary to purchased a minivan, Chrysler T&C's were very popular, but the head gaskets and AT...

    Had to renew my driver's license.

    Ha, not kidding, was one of the highest paid engineers for three companies I worked for, sales boosted so great, owners sold all three at different times. Since I was the highest paid engineer was the first one laid off, but all three companies folded it up in under a year because they couldn't...

    Had to renew my driver's license.

    My wife is an import, ha, they don't make them here like in other countries. She did get her US citizenship, but our nutty DMV would not issue her a driver's license until she brought in her US citizenship certificate. But when she went to register to vote, they didn't want to see it. She...

    Had to renew my driver's license.

    Not exactly stupid yet but getting there. All that information was given to the clerk at the DMV office and was requested by him so that I could renew my license. Eight years ago, just had to turn in my own license so who is getting paranoid. There was no doubt with the clerk that I am me and...

    Had to renew my driver's license.

    Besides surrendering my old drivers license and receiving renewals for the last 65 years, wanted to see my US passport, also shown my vet card, my aircraft license, my social security card, and paid with my credit card with my name on it. Also had to fill out of form for the first time with...

    2012 Lincoln Navigator - 6r80 - 235k miles - possible trans slip

    Sure is possibility mistaking a shift problem for an engine misfire, engine is put under load when up shifting. Been listening to symptoms all my grown life, but being there is a much different story.

    2012 Lincoln Navigator - 6r80 - 235k miles - possible trans slip

    Brains are in the ECU gear shift lever mechanical function is to slip the parking pawl in a toothed gear for park, shifting goes though what they use to call the neutral safety switch whose contacts can get dirty engaging or disengaging many solenoid activated hydraulic valves for the different...

    2012 Lincoln Navigator - 6r80 - 235k miles - possible trans slip

    Must be a road salt free area, if that car was up here in road salt country would be a pile of rust a long time ago. Coolant lines can be dropped for a complete flushing and all new AT fluid may help, but these things do wear out.

    New clutch no 5th or hard shift

    Takes me back to the 80's like about 40 years ago, also 40 years younger. Mostly Honda's, Toyota's, and Nissan's if I didn't use OEM parts would have to do the job again, clutch chatter like crazy. Back in the 50's with MT's, about a three hour job, shops would resurface the flywheel, pressure...

    PO 316 and PO305 codes 2003 Lincoln Town Car

    See the Made in USA on this plug! Can say the same thing about NGK plugs, had a ceramic seal leak blowing out the spark. Was making a tool for SnapOn back in the 60's that electronically shorted out each plug if you don't like using your thumb, but was taken off the market in 1972 with the...

    PO 316 and PO305 codes 2003 Lincoln Town Car

    Weird, found Autolite to be the best plugs, iridium's are only four bucks each and last forever, but do have to be properly gaped, twice you age Nick II, does that equate to twice the experience. Miss my older RWD cars with positraction, never saw a FWD with the feature and instead of being a...

    Ha, on a 98 Ford ZX2 had to open and close the driver's door ten times to program a remote. These software guys do ave a sense of humor.

    1992 Lexus LS400, warning light "airbag: stays on the time when key is on.

    Toyota besides Lexus also made my 1988 Supra Turbo, fortunately no airbags, also no diagnostic plug, to read codes for different functions have to do strange things and the only way to remember how to do this, is to read the shop manual. Could remember this 30 years ago, but forgot, believe you...

    PO 316 and PO305 codes 2003 Lincoln Town Car

    Was running fine then a misfire, any chance did this happen after you added gas to the tank? Don't mention location, entire SE USA had excessive rain from hurricanes. Can of Heet does have a little, with a fuel pressure tester and hot wiring the the fuel pump, can pump gas into a clear...

    99 Camry 2.2L Ignition module?

    Ignition module just contains a gated bipolar transistor with a zener diode across it if bad, car won't even start. Shifting to different gears sounds more like dirty neutral safety switch contact problems in a very erratic fashion. About the only things the gear shift lever does mechanically...

    PO 316 and PO305 codes 2003 Lincoln Town Car

    Common problem around here if you get a little water in the gas, my kids don't take after me, maybe after their mother, actually believe that line of BS where spark plugs are good for 100K miles. Depending how you drive, what kind of fuel you dump in the tank with some spark plugs, lucky to get...

    Oh, this is going to be a doozy

    Was just a lowly engineer, marketing guys bragging about their Mercedes Benz"s were paying around 700 bucks each month and this was just for general service and back in the 80's, with inflation, that price would be doubled today. Rode with one in Las Vegas, temperature was 110*F, air...
