Customer Question

on a 98 degree day, engine @ operating temp., car would not start . Returned hrs. later, car started. It's a 99' concord.Had dealer check it, told it's never failed to start
JA: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Customer: It's a 99' Chrysler Concord with the 3.? dohc engine
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?

did the dealer pull any codes?

generally when you have a no start with the engine cranking normally there SHOULD be a code set if NO codes set then a good tech would be looking at the fuel pump as that's the 1 thing that will cause any engine not to start intermittently and NOT set any faults
