I’m considering replacing the convertible top on my 1994 Chrysler Lebaron. It may be the original and it has a couple of leaks. I’m concerned because the last time I put the top down it went down smoothly but when I went to put it back up it momentarily hung up on one side and then closed, but not evenly. The right side, the side that hung up, took a lot of effort to close completely even after taking the adjustment out of the hook by unscrewing it as much as possible.

Here’s my question: If I decide to get it replaced will the convertible top installer take care of lubricating the frame on which the top is mounted (I think that may be all it needs) or otherwise repair it or, is a new frame included with a new top? Excuse my lack of knowledge in this area as I have never replaced a top before. My fear is that in the process of putting the top down and up to show someone for the purpose of estimating the work to be done the top will freeze up partially, rendering the vehicle undriveable. It’s the only vehicle I have.

i have a car that i just posted about that is in the shop for the 3rd time for the same problem.. the place has a warranty of 12 months/ 12,000 miles.. BUT.. i am wondering if the car is still having the same exact problem that i brought it into the place the 1st time.. they have been well paid over $2,000.. if they come up with it being a different fix than what was originally fixed.. do i have to pay.. i don’t think i should have to.. they said head gasket..they fixed.. i paid.. now it’s still having the same exact problem ??

what i am really asking is.. if it turns out to be a different cause and was not the head gasket like they said and like i paid for.. i want to know if i would have to pay for something new to get fixed.. if it turns out they fixed the wrong thing??.. it’s having the same exact problem as when i 1st went to them.. and after paying them good $$ why should i have to pay again for a different fix ??

I have a 1995 Chrysler Lebaron it has only 70,000 miles on it .. about a month ago i noticed the car start to shake after running some errands around then smelled like gas and white smoke came out of the tail pipe. took it to the mechanic who said it was the head gasket and replaced that with a new water pump, and timing kit..when i got it back it was fine while i ran a few stop and go errands ( about 1 hours worth ). after i got it to one of the errands and had it parked for just 1 hour and i started it up.. it shook , smelled of gas again and the white smoke.. sent it back to mechanic.. they were puzzled , but did find a small crack in some cylinder, and replaced that. i got it back home and after driving and stopping and going for about 1 1/2 hours, i brought it home. parked it and had a hunch to start it after it sat for just 1 hour.. sure enough it happened all over again..what is wrong with this car??

Dear All:  I have a 2010 Chrysler Town and Country with 36,404 miles on it.  Recently the transmission started to lurch between 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears.  I took it to a dealership in Lexington, KY and they have discovered that a selenoid valve was stuck in a closed position.  Luckily this is covered by the Chrysler warranty.  I hope the replacement of the valve repairs the problem.

I have a 2008 Chrysler 300, with 55,000 miles. It has a V-6 engine, 3.8L, I believe.  This morning I drove it and everything was fine.  I came back home and left the radio on while I loaded the car.  After that the battery was drained enough so that I had to jump the car off.  I used the battery to make the jump connection instead of the positive post located in the engine compartment.  The car is now in “limp mode” with the transmission not shifting higher than second gear. Any suggestions??

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring. While driving on the highway a transmission line burst suddenly and all of my trasmission fluid leaked out. My car has not started since then. I took it back to the place I purchased it from 6 weeks ago. He said they fix the transmisson line but couldnt figure out why the car would not start, though this is a place where they take apart and put together cars daily. What could the issue be?

The car starts  but it will not idle it always cuts off. The check engine light comes on with codes P0158,P0160 and P0455  It will get sluggish and cut off. I just had the flywheel replaced about a month ago and a new starter installed. If anybody has any idea what it might be I would appreciate it.
