1989 turbocharged chrysler lebaron 2.2 back to life--GOTSPL--
its the phantom. Been down for 11 months and its back ---Runs 14-15psi fwd
i snapped in the middle of racing the front bracebar that attaches to the
trans mount with the engine torge.it was originally welded so we drilled
6-3/4" bolts through the frame and it holds. then shortly afterwards the
steering collum snapped in half while racing so it took us 11 months to
figure out how to replace it with another model lebaron which doesnt come
with blinkers or the right harness on the collum.When we cut off the other
harness it effected the brake lights so were trying to fix it.
I have a 1980 Chrysler LeBaron. I am the second owner. I bought it from the
original owner which was a lady. I have the original title from her when
she bought it in 1980. Also i have a new clear title in my name. The car is
in great shape for its age. She had it in the garage and now i have it
under a fully covered carport. It runs and drives great. It rides very
nice, its extremely comfortable. The car is all original. There is
absolutely zero rust on this car. It is a Texas car and its been here all
its life. The AC does blow cold. Everything works on the car from the auto
locks to the antenna going up and down when you put the radio on. I would
love to see a collector get this car because of the originality and the
shape its in for its age . You cant find them like this anymore. It does
have current registration. It really is a pretty neat looking car.

1994 Chrysler Lebaron GTC Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 1994 Chrysler Lebaron GTC. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Newly rebuilt 2.2L turbo dodge engine
with knock sound coming from #1 cylinder. Likely related to a improperly
sized connecting rod or piston allowing wrist pin knock.
1989 Chrysler LeBaron in-depth tour
This is a video of my 1989 Chrysler LeBaron. The color is light pewter. It
has a 2.2L turbo II engine, 16" lace
wheels, leather, and an Infinity 1 audio system.
I thought it might be interesting to put up a video of this car as well,
although it isn't in a as good shape as all of my other cars are/have been.
The car was hit by a truck during the summer of 2008 while it was parked
alongside a street. I decided to keep it and restore it. Because it has had
a complete lack of maintenance making the car technically sound took some
time. There were many thing that were worn and had never seen any upkeep at
all. Furthermore, I decided to have the engine swapped to a turbo version, which turned out to be a very bad
ide because the revised engine broke down after two rides because of a bad
I didn't have it resprayed yet, partly because I first want to be sure that
this engine WILL keep on running.
Enjoy the video!

Dodge 2.2L cylinder head removal and post-mortem
The Dodge 600 convertible I picked up a few years ago as a very cheap
Craigslist find never ran right.
I finally got around to pulling the head for an inspection and boy did this
thing have problems.
This video also marks the world premiere of Weedeater Man for 2011. You'll
even get a brief glimpse of him at the controls of his trusty weed trimmer.
