The Chrysler New Yorker was the longest running American car nameplate that was sold from 1946 to 1996. For nearly six decades, this vehicle wowed the people because of its looks and performance. Just like other cars, the New Yorker also experiences some common problems that every driver must know about.
If the Chrysler New Yorker shifts from third to fourth gear in a very harsh manner, then there's a problem with the converter clutch. If it makes the trans-axle wobble whenever the driver shifts gears, it's because there's a problem in the transmission. A defective converter clutch is a common issue in the New Yorker and this must be attended to right away. Make sure to purchase new Chrysler New Yorker parts so that the defective components can be replaced right away with new ones.
The 1992 Chrysler New Yorker was built with a transmission range sensor, which posed three different issues that also created shifting issues with the vehicle. Take note that the transmission range sensor of the car is the one that indicates all the shift points during acceleration. If this gets busted, it can cause the New Yorker to have problems with shifting or worse, not shift at all. If this happens, make sure to get it replaced right away because it can pose major problems with the transmission, such as damaging the linkage or heating up and burning the transmission, which can later on completely give up.
Even though some issues are very minor, they can also affect the performance of the Chrysler New Yorker. Another common problem is when the overhead control information unit does not light up. If this is the case, the fuses on the car must be inspected to make sure that everything is working. Otherwise, replacement of these Chrysler New Yorker parts must be done. Also, inoperative car windows are a usual problem among automobiles. To solve this issue, the window motor must be checked. With the key in the on position but with the engine not running, roll the window up and down. If the dome light dims as the window is moving, it's an indication that the window motor is defective. If it's not, there's a wiring problem. The common cause for this kind of dilemma is that there's a small harness that goes from the body to the door and when the car door opens and closes, the wires may break.
