This is an indication of blowback or blowby. You have an emmisions problem, stopped up PCV valve or you may have bad rings. Have a compression test run to verify if the rings are bad. Replace the PCV valve. Accually This was a Chysler Manufacturing Problem. This is very common in all lebarons and Chrysler V6's. The Baffle on the engine relases built up ehxuast gasses from this little hose. It then travels to the airfilter, the baffle is not correctly welded to the valve covers and requires re welded. But if you have some mechanical nohow you can go to your local hardware store and pick up a one way valve that allows air to pass but not fluid. It must be mounted horizontal, route the oil into a small canister and empty periodically. There will be no oil left in your filter on a small amount of oil for you to have to throw out every few months.

My advice would be to have the transmission fluid and filter changed. If that does not correct the problem you need to have the transmission rebuilt by a professional.

Most likely the filter. i would check the fingers inside the filter for tears.

Check your distributor cap, make sure your not getting moisture in it...lebaron and Chrysler 3.0 have a common problem with the screws on the dist. cap to be corroded and break off. quite possible this problem is as simple as replacing your dist cap.

The problem could be a number of things, including clogged fuel injectors, a fuel filter or air filter that needs replacing, or a computer problem.

This happened to my 1985 Lebaron Conv and all the car needs is a new brake light switch mounted on the brake pedal under the dash. Problem solved!

The Lebaron was no longer in the lineup for Chryslr in 2006. The Chrysler Lebaron was produced between 1977-1989,and was then phsed out by Chrysler due to weak sales.

First off I would not recommend any Fram filter for any car. They are poor quality filters. Purolator, Wix, & Bosch, are what I recommend. But saying that the correct Fram filter for your 1998 Civic is PH3593A and the PH4386 is not the correct filter.

Yes, if it is partially clogged. Replace it to find out if that is your problem.

Tune-Up's are a thing of the past. If you have only hand tools, the spark plugs , fuel filter, ignition wires & PVC can be done at home. If you have a running problem, the above parts may or may not solve the problem. If they don't correct the problem you would be money & time ahead to consult a reliabe repair shop.

Look at your temperature gage...If that is low, you might have a bad thermostat, which would keep your heater from working...I would check that first. also, check the cab air filter. i had the same problem. temp was fine but the filter was full.

Is it electrically controlled? If so, it will have to come out to trouble shoot the different motors under it. I think there are three.

You will find it (the PVC valve) in the same place as you would on a 1995 Lebaron 3.0. I own a 1990 Chrysler lebaron 3.0 v6 and found the PVC valve in the same spot. Look up where to find the PVC valve on a 1995 lebaron 3.0 on this site. Best of luck.

Before you can fix the idle problem on your Vauxhall Frontera, you need to find out the cause of the problem. If the problem is with the fuel pump or fuel filter, they would need to be replaced.

There could be a few things on a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron causing the distributor not to have power. But first I would check the spark plugs and see if maybe they have gone bad.
