1995 Chrysler LHS 3.5 from North America
It would be a great car if it would just run.
We bought the car for $395.00 with a broken timing belt caused by a bad water pump we had a new water pump and timing belt already in our garage. When we replaced the timing belt we also replaced the timing gears because the had melted rubber on them from the old timing belt.
After we got the car running the same night we bought it, we took it out and drove it, it ran fine, then after a few days it started miss/hesitate during acceleration and at idle, however, this is not a constant problem because every so often it will run fine, but not for long. We replaced the MAP sensor and Oxygen sensor, did not work. We took it to a dealer they told us that when we took our cam gears of it messed up our timing so we had that fixed, but we still have the problem. We put new plugs and wires on it and unhooked the negative side of the battery cable then hooked it back up, still had the problem.
If you have any ideas as to what our problem could be please leave a comment.
The car its self is in great shape and rides great. It has the most comfortable seats, there are not any worn spots on them. The A/C and heat work great. The only thing that does not work is the screen on the CD player.
I would recommend this car to any one because when they are running they are great. This is our first one of these cars although we have owned two Eagle Visions which are the same thing. One of the Eagles just had a 3.3 engine and the other has a 3.5 engine we still have this one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1. The timing belt did break; check for bent valves
2. Check for clogged fuel injectors
3. Check coil pack for internal arcing or miss firing
4. If the water pump was bad while driving, check for moisture in the crank case, which would then travel to the exhaust system clogging the converter, which would then cause overheating and engine failure.
