    Coolant specs

    Yes, I agree with Hemi, a 50/50 mix of a quality brand extended life anti-freeze and distilled water will be all you need. Make sure you buy straight anti-freeze and not the prediluted type that you don't add water to. They are about the same price and a gallon of straight anti-freeze and a gallon of distilled water is a lot less expensive that two gallons of the prediluted antifreeze. Think about it.

    Rear Brake calipers

    Checkout Rockauto.com. They have remanufactured rear calipers at reasonable prices for the TC plus some rebuild kits.
  3. The advertised TC radio at $60.00 has been sold.
  4. Hi, I have an original radio-cassette player from a 1990 Chrysler TC Maserati. See attached photos. I replaced this unit with a new unit and have it as a spare. It worked perfectly, prior to being replaced. I will sell the unit pictured for $60.00., shipping included. If you are interested let me know at : rmtroutman@gmail.com. Thanks.

    89 16v radiator hose for sale *Nice*

    If anyone is looking for a NEW upper radiator hose for the 2.2 DOHC engine, check RockAuto.com. They have moulded and flexible ACDELCO and Gates hoses for less than $10. Lower hoses by the same makers for less than $20. Granted they are not the original Chrysler hoses, but does that really matter?

    ATF

    My '90 TC, number 5567, was manufactured in Oct. '89, and it too has the same part number and use Dexron II imprinted on the dipstick. I agree, with earlier comments, use only Mopar ATF +3 or +4. Use of Dexron transmission fluid will not give satisfactory performance in the Ultradrive transmission.

    Front Turn Signal Bulbs (front bumper)

    The TC has two bulbs behind the amber lens below the front bumper. The outer is the turn signal bulb, a number 1156 ( single contact), the inner bulb is the parking light, a number 67. The number 2057 bulb ( double contact ), is used in the rear lights as as a combination stop and tail light. Corrosion is usually the reason the contacts fail. I've found using a small amount of dielectric grease on the contacts helps keep moisture from forming the corrosion that leads to failure.

    Brake Pressure Switch

    Digger,...l went to Amazon and found the brake pressure switch, Delco 25530882, you refer to, but in checking " does it fit ", they claim it DOES NOT fit a 1990 Chrysler TC Maserati. Have you any information saying that it will? I'd hate to spend $89.19 on a part that's not useable. Any comments?

    blown head gasket

    I had a similar problem with my '90 TC V-6, where it would be running on the cold side most of the time. Traced it to a faulty thermostat that was stuck open about a quarter inch. I replaced it with a new 195 degree thermostat and since then it has always maintained a temperature about mid-scale. Check the functioning of your thermostat. It may be stuck partially open when cold. I hope this helps.

    remote door opener

    Les, if your '90 TC had a remote door opener, it must have been an aftermarket add-on, such as the remote starters some cars have. I have a '90 TC, and I have never seen any reference to a remote for the door locks either in the owners manual or service manual. I have seen kits for remote door locks, with fobs, but these are not factory installed options. Is there any chance you could salvage the old system from your wrecked TC and fit it to your new one? This may be your only option or be like the rest of us and use the key.
