  1. It's a "parking brake", not an "emergency brake". Sorry, I had to add this, I used to be an engineer at a company that produced "parking brake assemblies"...and that is the 1st thing they teach you in Park Brake 101 class...
  2. I also use only ethanol free gas. If it is going to sit for a while, you can fill it up and add some gas stabilizer.
  3. Here is one on E-Bay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1986-Chrysler-Town-Country/282809557749
  4. I haven't really looked at it, but if the window regulator for the rear quarter is anything like the LeBaron's, it is a beast to take out. It was not designed for serviceability. The company I worked for back then produced them in one of our sister plants...I had wanted to change the windows on my Lebaron, and received free test glass from that plant, but when I started the replacement process, I gave up... That is also why you see a lot of old Lebaron's with the "Shark Fins"...the motors on the regulator would quit due to the poor water management...
  5. The release is in the trunk. You can use your tire iron -- left = lock, right = release. If you open up the tonneau, you can "pop" the switches out the back. I've taken mine out to test and need to replace.
  6. Check arizonaparts.com part number is 4463861
  7. I think dealers abandoned the manuals years ago. I got my manual for my 1990 TC on e-Bay...
  8. Thanks. The hose I am using is fuel injection hose with the proper clamps. I was an Automotive Engineer for 30+ years...my main question was the hose ID's as I had seen multiple comments on the site regarding the issue.
  9. Thanks. Other than the fumes, it runs like a top. I figure there must be some dry-rot cracks underneath the clamps on the existing hose and when they heat up self seal.
  10. I intermittently smell gas fumes on my 1990 TC with the V6. The fumes come from under the hood usually after I start it up (but not all the time) and / or when I let it idle for a while. Once I get on the road the fumes disappear ( I know evaporation). I am going to replace the hoses and possibly the fuel pressure regulator. What is (are) the proper hose size(s), and what is the fuel pressure regulator part number for the V6? I see different bits and pieces on this topic in the forum, but most of what I read is related to the turbos... Thanks.
  11. You can use your tire wrench. It works perfect...left to lock and right to unlock...
  12. Thanks. That is kind of what I was thinking...but sometimes with older engines, synthetic isn't forgiving. I had a Kia Spectra5 that I used Synthetic...It had 260K miles on it when I finally traded it...
  13. I have a 1990 with 43K miles on it. I am about to get the oil changed. Is it safe to change to synthetic?
  14. Especially with the TC having a white body with must be maroon trim around the engine compartment. WOW...what amazing photography...
