Engine Performance problem
1995 Chrysler Le Baron 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 69000 miles
The engine has a long history of stalling out. (This time it can be kept running by shifting into neutral and keeping the accelerator open but this is not drivable). Over a couple of years many $ have been applied to the problem (some new sensors, distrib.,etc.,etc). I have wired in a ground wire to all engine grounds, as suggested by several Lebaron Club members and the car ran fine for a couple of months (about 700 miles) when the stall began again, as it usually does. The key switch code system now reads 12 (OK), 54, (no fuel sync signal) and 55 (OK). I was told by a shop that #54 is a "general" code and they will have to run a diagnostic with their "reader" to learn what is wrong. I have had this done several times and am thru with that approach (throwing in new parts until the problem goes away).
I bought the '95 GTC Lebaron Conv. (from a woman's estate). It appeared to be in excl. cond. W/40K mi. in Rockport, TX a Gulf Coast town. It now has 68K mi. and is my "toy" car. I suspect that the coastal climate may have started an electrical corrosion problem but none apparent on the body.
The picture was taken here in Austin, TX, Dec. 20/ '10 w/my gnddtr age 15 from San Diego, CA.
