  1. Summer has started to arrive in England and in preperation for warmer weather in Jul (maybe) checked the AC system and found a leak in the high pressure line. Two years ago had the AC converted from Freon 12 to Freon 134. Have look under the hood for a sticker that shows how much R 12 the system requires but none is to be found. Hence I am at a lost as how much Freon should be added to the system.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p> </o:p> <o:p>Please provide the number of ounces or the number of grams of R134 that should be added to the system to achive maximum cooling.</o:p><o:p> </o:p> <o:p> Thanks in advance for the help.</o:p> <o:p>Cheers,</o:p> <o:p>Majmx</o:p> <o:p>Suffolk England</o:p>
  2. Dwight; Did you wash and wax your TC before before you took the pictures? That is sure a great reflection off the hood of the vehicle. In the first and second pictures you can see the detail of the house on either side of the street. Great looking paint job! However, like Bob and TC 89 I will stick with the orginal paint configuration. Cheers, Bob
  3. TC Toy and Tony T; Thanks you both for postings replies. Apologies for not answering the mail soon but have been busy this past week. Now the weekend is almost gone, at least in the UK, I thought it best to review the form and see what was happening. Tony, the radio you purchased would you please provide me make and if possible the model of the radio you have installed. Working in the UK I do all my ordering on line and calling a vendor in the states at time get a little frustrating for they seldom are able to tell me if the product I am inquiring about will be a plug and play unit. Hence the request for make and model of the units that works in your TC. Thanks in advance for the help. Cheers, Bob Suffolk England
  4. Happy New Year!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> Well it was a sad finish to 2010 for after almost 21 years the original Infinity radio in my 89 TC 2.2 finally stopped working. The good news is the TC thus far in 2011 is working fine. Of course I have not driven it in two days so Monday 3 Jan 2011 may be another story.<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> Have removed the original Infinity from the vehicle and now must decide whether to have it repaired, providing I can find repair manual/repair shop, or with your help find out what make and model radio will plug directly into the original wiring harness that powered the Infinity radio.<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> All suggestion would be appreciated. Cheers, Bob<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> Suffolk England
  5. Hello Dwigth; I hope you had success with LouZ procedure that Pizzaman provided. I have been through a similar problem with my 89 TC. You might want to also check the two fuses that are located in an electrical box in the engine compartment at the forward side of the right splash shield. Since the car came out of Florida there is a chance these two fuses might be blown. Take care in opening the black plastic cover of this electrical box. I will send, to your email address, the latest addition of the TC Club news letter has a brake article you might find interesting. Best of luck in finding the fault with your 89 TC's brakes. Happy New Year! Cheers, Majmx Suffolk, England
  6. Greetings; Imperial North reference your comments about "how unique the TC is." Did you happen to see the Novermber issue of Motor Trend page 12 where Angus Machenzie in his article Promise Fulfilled made a remark about the TC. It appears he has a different view about the TC. Cheers, Bob Suffolk England
  7. Greetings; Have sent you a PM on door locks. Cheers, Bob Steele Suffolk UK
  8. Allen; I sent you a PM. Cheers, Bob S Suffolk UK
  9. Greeting from the Uk; I drive my 89 TC 2.2L daily. Yes I have had head a gasket problem and break problems with the car since it arrived in the UK. However it 20 year old and I enjoy keeping her running. My car has 85,000 miles and I figure I can run it for another 20,000 miles with out having to many problems. Best of luck selecting your TC. Cheers, Bob Suffolk England
  10. Good News is always appreciated. Glad all worked out. Cheers, Bob Mildenhall UK
  11. Todd; Sent you an email to your home email account. Cheers, Bob
  12. Greetings Roger; I had a similar problem with my 89. After doing extensive trouble shooting using the blue cover service manual I replaced the fan relay and the temp sensor. This did not solve the problem. At this point I decided to take the car to certified Chrysler dealer and ask for advice. Explained to the mechanic about the trouble I was having. He asked me to open the hood and then pointed to my positive lead on the battery. It appears that Chrysler had problems with the red fusible link in the wire bundle containing all the fusible link which is located just aft of the battery. The red fusible link would separate from the main fusible link connection. To reconnect power to the red fusible link they ran a wire from the positive terminal connection and spliced it to the end of the red fusible link. After reconnecting the red fusible link to the positive terminal the fan works like new. Good luck with the trouble shooting. Cheers, Bob Mildenhall Suffolk England
  13. Hello Sue; Just went through this overheating without the fan not running when it reach about 212 degrees. I replace the sensor on the radiator housing, and also the fan relay on the left strut housing all to no avail. What I discovered was I had a fusible link that was broken. I determined this because I was not able to get the A/C Compressor to engage when I pushed the AC button located on the left side of the heater/AC control pane. If you are not able to get the AC compressor to run when you depress the AC control button you might have a fusible link that is bad. On my 89 2.2 the fusible links are located just below the radiator fan control relay located on the left strut tower. It is my understanding the orange link on the outside of the master fusible link plug was notorious for breaking at the plug head. Hence the work around used by some Chrysler mechanics was to run a wire from the positive terminal of the battery and connect it via a splice to the end of the orange fusible link broke off from the master fusible link plug. Hope this helps. Cheers, Bob Steele TC America Suffolk England
  14. When the temperature gauge indicator is between the ¼ and the ½ marks the radiator fan does not turn on. <O:p</O:p Have disconnected the electrical leads coming off the fan motor and direct wired the motor to the battery and the fan runs without a problem.<O:p></O:p> With the temperature gauge reading at the ½ mark plug the fan motor back into the factory installed electrical connection. Then disconnected the electrical connection from the coolant temperature sensor located in the thermostat housing. The fan did not come on. Reconnected the coolant temperature sensor and next replaced the fan control relay located on the left strut tower with new Chrysler relay. This remove and replace action did not cause the radiator fan to turn even though the temperature gauge was still reading between the ½ and ¼ mark. Any suggestions on what the next trouble shooting step should be would be appreciated. Cheers, Bob

  17. Hello Mike; Sure hope by now you have figured out why the wrong part keep arriving at your door. I would suspect that if you could talk to live sales person, from the place you are ordering from, and asked them to check and see if they stock the driver side slider. If they do have it listed under a different part number see if they will compare the two and let you know what the difference is. Using this approach you can determine if they have in fact got their part numbers reversed. Good luck! Cheers, Bob TC America Member

  19. Purchase my TC in 1993 when the car was four year old. Then I was 50 years old. The last 16 years have been filled with 98% enjoyment :)while driving the TC and 2% with mechanical troubles:(. <O:p></O:p> <O:p></O:p> However thanks to the diverse age group we have on this site it help all of us learn more about our TCs, enjoy the camaraderie and get expert assistance when required. <O:p<O:p> </O:p> Cheers, Bob TC America
  20. In the UK it has started to rain again after a very dry summer. Since the rainy season started I have been accumulating water along the rubber seal located directly below the left plastic trim step plate that you observe when opening the driver's door. Water accumulation has resulted in the carpets becoming damp and water collecting on the floor pan. <O:p <O:p At first I thought water was collecting in this area because I was driving the car in rainy weather. On as sunny day, rare this time of year in the UK, I left the door open and dried out the rubber strip and the carpets. After all traces of water and dampness has been removed I parked the TC on a level surface, made certain all windows and doors were tightly closes and waited for the next rain shower to take place. After six hours of light rain the rain stopped and I went out to inspect the car. During the rain storm somehow water had collected on the rubber seal located directly below the plastic trim step plate. Water collection was sufficient to cause the carpets to become damp. <O:p <O:p Needless to say I am at lot as what the next step should be to determine what is causing the water to collect on this rubber seal. :confused: Recommendations / suggestions on how to eliminate this water hazard would be greatly appreciated for rain is forecast for the next three day and our UK garage was not built to handle anything bigger than a Morris 1000.<O:p <O:p Cheers, <O:p<O:pBob S <O:pTC America Member
  21. David; You seem to be impressed with your new found Barracuda. You have received a lot of good advice. However I offer the following: You have had your TC for some time and needless to say have taken the time to bring her up to your specifications and insured the work was accomplished to your high standards. You are about to take on another vehicle, grant it you know the guy that did the work, but is his work and the other who have worked on the Barracuda along the way accomplished the maintenance to your standards? If you can provide an in equable yes to the above question then purchase the Barracuda. If you cannot then I encourage you to rethink the entire situation and before you make the final decision decide how much work and time it would take you bring the Barracuda up to your standards. Once you have decided how much time it would take to bring this vehicle to your standards then think about the enjoyment you could get out of the TC and not having to spend your time in garage. Cheers, Bob
  22. Mike; Good looking TC. What brand and style are the wheels? Are the lakers functional or just for looks? If both are functional where did you split the exhaust and are they straigh pipes? Cheers, Bob S
  23. I need a head light switch knob. If there is one on this car please remove it and send me a PM with your asking price. <O:p></O:p> Also require the rubber molded part that goes in the chrome strip below the left rear window. The molded part is the end cap for the chrome strip.<O:p></O:p> <O:p> </O:p> In addition I require an Infinity radio please let me know if this radio is in working condition.<O:p></O:p> Cheers, Bob
  24. Runwithscissors; Did you receive the two emails I sent you concerning your TC? Please reply back to majax@aol.com. Cheers, Bob
  25. Greeting Lou / My TC Toy Lou, just to let you know I followed your advise in the above post and favorable results are below. To clean the windscreen I used vinegar with a small amount of water. Applied same with an old wash cloth and wiped the glass off with newspaper. This my seem a bit old fashion but growing up in the early 50's and washing windows after school had to cut cost so went with vinegar and newspaper. Applied the rain X to a dry newspaper then used the damp paper to apply Rain X to the windscreen. End result all the small sand pits could not be seen with direct sunlight shining through the windscreen. Lou will be using your recommendation before I take the TC in for its annual Ministry of Transport annual inspection. Again Lou thanks for the great advise!!! :) Cheers, Bob S TC America Member
