1993 Chrysler New Yorker Salon 4dr Sedan
Review
2007 bought '93 NY Salon like new/32K. Bolt-in rear springs from '86 Cougar for $20. sits and rides nice & can carry tools in trunk, passengers, and trailer. Around 51K AT often failed to shift. Manual calls limp mode; locks in 2nd. Switch ign. off/on while driving resets to normal mode, drives fine; seems like electronic problem. Now, limp mode AT delayed engagement from stop; seems like pressure problem. Dealer should know w/o $125. diagnostic; junkyard is full of these cars w/o phys. damage. $8.38 BARS LEAKS AT REPAIR has no effect. $5.27 Trans-X at Wal-Mart fixes both problems for app. a week of driving;? Drill 3/16" hole in rear of AT pan & plug with sheet metal screw to avoid overfill
Favorite Features
Nice looking family car. Seats 3 in rear, seat belt holders make center 3rd in front uncomfortable, but possible. At stop, hit in rear by car skidding, braking from 50 mph; totaled her's, bent my bumper and one bump absorber. It did jar my neck and back, though. 4 yr. old son was ok in his car seat.
Suggested Improvements
Try upholstery cement to re-attach plastic panels. Salon doesn't have air shocks. Replaced sagging rear springs, power steering & water pumps, and idler pulley by 50K, fuel pump at 70K. What is causing the AT to go into limp mode? Drives fine in normal mode. Filter & fluid change had no effect.
