1996 Chrysler Concorde Owner Comments

problem #8

Oct 152009

Concorde

  • 75,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

1. "busy rattle", not loud, but continuous, most noticeable on smooth roads above 30 mph, from front frame sub-assembly, four mounting bolts. The sub-frame assembly is also called the "motor carrier" and is bolted from the bottom up to the frame (above). Each bolt goes through a large rubber bushing (also called an insulator). With 75,000 thousand miles and no oil leaks, the rubber bushings are all dried out and flaking apart. Each insulator cost over a hundred dollars and is only available from Chrysler. The cost of replacing via a quote from pep boys is over seven hundred dollars. The replacement parts are made from a hard yellow plastic type material and should be more durable. 2. according to the mechanic at pep boys the vibration will wear the bolts and eventually the engine could drop down. 3. pep boys recommends the bushings and the bolts to be replaced. The new bushings from Chrysler have a 1 year warranty. Reviewed the complaints for this problem and did not see any accidents caused by the rattle or a report that the engine actually could fall out on the road. The data base is not well organized as it is segmented by monthly reports. I can see how the noise might cause one to increase the radio volume and not hear an emergency vehicle. These bushings will be replaced.

This also happened on 13 Oct 99. Took vehicle to dealer & mechanic indicated transmission needed seals/packaged transaxle, torque convertor/ transmission/oil pump & input clutch replaced.
