I would have to disagree with you on that. Chrysler did make a 2.0, 4 cylinder for a LeBaron. I should know, I have one.

There is no such thing as a 2.0L 4cyl. in any U.S. spec Chrysler Lebaron. Maybe an export only, and that's a stretch. Chrysler didn't even start making a 2.0L 4cyl. engine in U.S. cars until 1995 in the "new" Dodge Neon.

I have to chime in on this. Verbatim, I blew a head gasket, replaced the engine, threw a rod in the second engine, replaced that, put a new transmission in, and I still am struggling to keep the car running. This all started at about 230-240,000 miles. I've got the 2.5 turbo and have been happy with the car after getting away from the dealer's maintenance crew. I've been getting low oil pressure readings on the gauge after long trips, and the shop still can't figure it out. Pressure looks good to them. I had it when we put the first engine in, took it to the shop who said it looked okay, then it threw the rod. They replaced it under warranty. I must be at 260 now, but the speedo hasn't been working right since the 230-240 mark so it's anybody's guess.

OK wow! 260k miles? Well no wonder you're having these kinds of strange mechanical troubles. I'd hate for you that you had to replace the engine and still have engine issues. It was either a bad used motor or a crappy rebuilt is my guess. If this car is only on it's second transmission at 260k miles, it's doing excellent for an American car, believe me.
