  1. I used the one in the first link. It's a Wabco accumulator. Worked perfectly and my pump no longer runs as frequently as it did. Before replacing the pump would run for 30 seconds every time I started the car, even after short trips, now it will really only run for 30 seconds after it's been sitting for a week or two. My 91 only had 46,000 actual miles but it was the original accumulator which only is only really designed to last 10 years. The pump running too much can be the accumulator as mentioned above, or possibly a pressure switch. Parts are still available for the Teves system, but hard
  2. Not trying to hijack this thread but Hemi I absolutely love that Shadow ES-best color/engine/transmission combo. I wish I could find a 4 door ES V6 5-speed. Also that minivan brings back a lot of memories. We had a 86 Voyager LE, black with woodgrain and the 2.6 Mitsubishi engine-never had any problems out of it.
  3. I'm not 100% sure but these cars might have two separate door switches, one for the key in/door ajar reminder and one for the headlights on warning circuit. I know some later Chrysler products had two (Neon, Minivans..etc).
  4. Hemi once again has offered great advice and information. The only reasons to be "scared" with I see with these cars is troubleshooting the Teves ABS system, body/trim parts availability, and mechanical bits for the 16 valve turbo. The rest is pretty much standard Chrysler and generally interchanges with most 80s-90s Front Drive Chrysler products. Like any "classic" car it's very wise to go through it with a fine tooth comb to prevent any possible issues (check hoses, belts, gaskets, wiring...etc). This club has an incredible knowledge base and all the information you could want for you or the
  5. Hemi once again has provided great advice. These early A604s were terrible transmission-most were replaced under warranty. My 47K 91 still has the original unit and I can't expect it to last more than 70K. Being technically knowledgeable-I'd tear it down and rebuild it my self as it's a pretty simple transaxle. I had a few rebuilt in the past in other Chrysler products, they usually run $1400-$1800 with all updated parts. Another option would be to convert it to the older A670 3-speed auto used in lower trim minivans and passenger cars with the 3.0. It will require some re-wiring but it's a fa
  6. Heads up Pick-N-Pull recently got in a 1990 TC. Looks to have taken a bad hit to the left side, probably lots of good parts for picking. Link: https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/ZC2FS1201LB205059?fbclid=IwAR1oqWeVVS9xRaaa50B_MpM3TH0BpJIbxZwz5Xme_Eyc_s8bIeCoJ3WsYzc
  7. Like Hemi said, you can have the hoses rebuilt. A reputable hose repair shop will replace the rubber and recrimp them. I've had some done for other cars where the hoses were no longer available.
  8. Thanks for the link. My soft top shows it's age, it spent several years in FL without the hard top so it's faded and has a small tare in it. I was hoping to find a complete good used assembly to drop in, rather than the whole top skin. I did that with my old Volvo C70 convertible. Just a few bolts and the whole assembly comes out.
  9. Here's mine, not currently on the list 206934 1991 Arctic White Ginger V6
  10. There are several decent sounding TCs in the most recent newsletter. I've got a white 91 that I'd trade for a yellow V6.
  11. If the pan was sealed with RTV sealant, make sure you get all the old RTV sealant off of the bolts and inside the bolt holes. They will cause the bolt hole threads to strip in the transmission if you don't.
  12. Fingers crossed that I can make it to the Jefferson show next year. The TC is doing better and I hopefully got the transmission issues ironed out.
  13. This might be old news for some, but I replaced the original accumulator on my 91 with 46K as part of the ABS system maintenance. As we all know these have a shelf life of 10 years or 120K. My car is nearly 30 years old (2/90 build date) so it's way overdue. Doing some research, the AC Delco part 25528382 is NLA and the Jaguar part JLM1907 is ridiculously overpriced. A little research later I found that the Wabco STC2784 Accumulator is a direct fit and costs shy of $200. It's for Land Rover/Range Rovers and are readily available. The Reatta guys have been using it for a while with no ill effec
  14. That's the way I'd normally do it, but my 91 is an all original 46K mile example and I want to keep it as original as possible. I'm going to replace my accumulator along with a brake flush (never been done as far as I know)...now if I can find a lesser loved 90-91 V6 car I'd have fun, delete the Teves and do a manual transmission swap.
