Question 1
I have a paid for 2004 Chrysler Pacifica that needs $2900 in repairs. Should I fix it or trade it in?...  

1)   Trade the sucka. - D O Double G

2)   It's a Chrysler, so that won't be your only expensive fix over the lifetime of the car. Best to get rid of it now and buy a Ford or Volkswagen - booyahbd

3)   For the love of God, trade it in! Stay away from Chrysler! - LoRd sTiG

4)   Fix it! Don't listen to these other people. The Chrysler Pacifica was engineered with Mercedes! The Chrysler Pacifica is a great car and you probably already know that. I don't know what these other three people are driving, but I'll bet that they have never even owned a Chrysler. Let alone a Chrysler Pacifica. I would think about trading it if you have really high miles because it never pays to sink that kind of money on a high mileage car.

Here's the real deal. Keep your Pacifica if you like it. Don't fix it and trade it if you don't. Use the money that you would have paid to fix it to put a down payment because they will deduct for the needed repairs.

I hope that this helps. - chrysler_link

5)   Kbb has it listed for $6,500 in the condition its in now. - hondab16tuner

6)   whats the trade in value? - Steve


Question 2
1999 chrysler intrepid passenger window ?????...  my passenger window was not working when i got the car I figured it was no big deal maybe a switch or a moter but I was wrong, I checked the switch to start it wasn't that, then I picked up a moter and when I took off the skin I found it was unpluged so I pluged it in and it rolled down but it wont go up anyone have any ideas??? I know its not the moter or the switch thanks

1)   most likely the drivers door switch, it powers the pass side switch. - Daniel R

2)   Inside the door, there is about a 3 foot long piece of toothed plastic. It's called the window tape. They have a habit of breaking. It probably needs replacing. - badbill1941

3)   Might be a fuse or relay,or it could be a short in the wires open the driver side door and between the fuse panel ant the door are some wires a bunch of them wrapped in coil insulation grab the harness and wiggle them at the same time try to raise the window sometime the wire that go to the power for the window break when the door open alot. Good luck - Lloyd

4)   Just remember that yours and all the early models had to have both the passenger door window switch and the drivers door window switch in good condition to operate. Because voltage and grounds pass through both so that kids don't push one switch up and the other down at the same time and blow a fuse. The newer models use the body controller to operate the windows with input from individual switches. - Jackolantern

5)   id look at the wiring going through the door to the body,they are prone to have the wires break - Steve

6)   Check for broken wiring in the rubber sleeve connecting the door to the body. If the wires are intact, i suspect you a bad switch. - C-Tech


Question 3
My 1997 Chrysler concorde interior lights stay on all the time?...  any reason why

1)   You have to adjust the switch noobcake - David

2)   Yeah--but a mechanic has to fix it. Take the bulbs out now before the battery goes dead. - fire_inur_eyes

3)   My switch sensor get stuck in real cold weather after the ar heats up it goes back to working. - Live Green

4)   Yep - you probably pushed the switch or little wheel near the light switch all the way in the other direction. Try messing around with it and the lights should go out. If this does not work, you could try pulling the fuse for the interior lights :) - Sharon

5)   Some cars have a rotary knob on the headlight switch. Try turning the knob clockwise, with the door closed. That should turn the lights off. If not, a door is not closed all the way, or one of the door switches needs adjusting. - badbill1941


Question 4
in a 3.8 chrysler will silicon workas good as a gasket in intake manifold? will gas damage silicon?...  it silicon cured 75 hours seems to work well

1)   the fuel will break down the silicone don't use it. - Steve

2)   ONLY if your silicone is O2 sensor safe, some O2's will fry from the vapors of silicone. Also if your intake was not installed by the factory with silicone I dont suggest you use silicone, use the right seal or gasket and yes gasoline does eat silicone - rick b

3)   FUCK NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Use the correct gasket! - Dave

4)   We used it exclusively for the end gaskets on 5.2s' and 5.7s', but not on the heads themselves. And it's not good for the catalytic converter if it get in it. - Jackolantern


Question 5
What do you think about PT Cruisers?...  1. Would a female date a guy who drives one?
2. Are they considered ugly
3. Are they reliable
4. Any other comments - feel free to mention.

1)   A fancy shell sitting on the body of a Neon. Have to ask the girl about the car. Can't answer that.
Outrider - Outrider

2)   I think they look kind of neat, but I test drove one and didn't really like the handling, and there isn't much footroom for rear seat passengers (even a child would be cramped). Plus, I don't really have a good opinion of Pontiac.
I would prefer a VW Beetle, which is kind of what the PT Cruiser is modeled after. - J.J.'s Advice / Avis de J.J.

3)   No
No Comment - Dave

4)   1.) Don't know, but lots of married people have them. 2.) Depends on your taste whether they are ugly - think for yourself, with thousands of them on the road since 2001, a bunch of people must like them. 3.) The later models (2004 and later) are more reliable. A lot of them were not maintained very well and the owner's blamed the car when they failed. 4.) They are very versatile and bigger on the inside than many other small cars. The mileage is about 23 city 28 hwy, a little on the low side for a small car. If you are buying used, the timing belt needs to be changed at about 70,000 miles. - C-Tech
