    What is the correct level of coolant in the overflow bottle when the engine is cold

      Usually, the correct level would be midway between full and empty - when the coolant and engine is cold.

      1.Local auto parts stores such as Autozone ( not in California) or Advance Auto parts will scan and retrieve any diagnostic trouble codes stored in the powertrain control module for free of charge..

      2. has the code reader for less than $21.00 dollars.

      3.Re-post the dtc's in here " answer question " and we will advise the repair.

      Note: we need the dtc's to identify the sensor, there're a dozen different sensors to operate the car and we can't do with a guesswork.

      Visit this site and see all the sensors.

      You don't have a belt tensioner. What chrysler calls A and B models, there is an adjustment nut for the alternator. You loosen that nut, pull more tension on the alternator, tighten the nut. That is a serpentine belt, correct? I'll check a different database see if it says the same thing.
      4/26/2012 jdl
      My bad, I did look at another database, it did show a tensioner.

      Obtain a free loan radiator pressure tester from the local auto parts stores such as Autozone, O'Reilly or PepBoys. Follow their instructions and pump it an adequate air pressure in lbs allowances on the radiator cap. Observe the leaks and perform the repair.
      Note: do not over-pressure than the pressure allowed in the radiator cap.

    The car will start just fine but upon acceleration it appears to not want to drive. Where should I start?
    Fluid levels are low ( oil and transmission ) the power steering fluid appears to be ok. When I try to accelerate the car will move but makes a whirring noise and there is a lot of drag.

      Are you saying the engine races but the vehicle doesn't go anywhere? If so, sounds like a tranny issue. If your saying the engine bogs down, how long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

    Where do I put in 134a refrigant and what tools are needed?
    • Jimm
      4/20/2012 Jimm
      Add the new refrigerant in the suction (low pressure) port on the ac suction line from the evaporator to the compressor. No tools are needed - per se - just use the ac charge kit that comes with the can of r134a refrigerant. Most of the time, the can comes with the small length of hose and the fitting required.

      Thank you Jimm!

    Passenger head light burned out at the same time my high beams stopped working. Replaced the headlight, high beams still not working. No power to the module. Could the multi task switch in the steering column be the issue? Thank you, Lisa

    Are there drain holes in the bottom of the muffler of the 3.5 liter engine exhaust system?
    I have observed condensate dripping from two places under the muffler of my LHS, one place at each end of the muffler just after engine start. Is this normal, or do I have a rusted through muffler? I don't have a hoist so that I can check this for myself and I'm ...

      Its normal, It just condensation. Same thing happens to me. Usually, if your muffler has a hole, it will become noisy or will have this whistling sound.

      Thank you for responding promptly, I guess from your reply that there are drain holes in the bottom of the muffler, just as there are in the resonator.

      As long as you are not noticing any driveability problems, you have nothing to worry about.

      My question is part of an investigation into unusual engine noise since my Chrysler dealer fitted a factory replacement engine. I am unable to decide if I hear induction noise, exhaust noise or mechanical noise. My dealer has checked the car and reports no fault found. The noise occurs even at small throttle openings and gentle acceleration. I am accustomed to a very similar but much louder induction noise under hard acceleration.

      Chrysler dealer fitted a factory replacement engine. - I can just imagine how much you spent

      Im sorry chief but me being online wont be able to hear it, how long is the warranty though?
      EG9 K20A3
      4/15/2012 Keith
      Warranty same as new car warranty, 3 years or 100,000 miles. Cost for job just under $7500, (around $$5000 for the new engine.). This is the nicest US built car I have owned, the ergonomics are excellent and the car fits my needs very well. If I could go out and buy a new one, I would do it.
