Description:

1993 Chrysler New Yorker

1993 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Avenue
The good:The last of the stately edged style New Yorkers provides a very comfortable ride. The cushy couch style seats are still lofty and add to the comfort of the ride.This machine runs and looks good.Well maintained, with the engine head rebuilt at 135,608 due to a bad valve. Last oil change was a little over 2000 miles ago (180,053), changed every 5000 to 7000 miles.
Tires have about 50% tread left on them. All lights and electronics seem to be working, except the passenger speaker shorts out occasionally.
The bad: Transmission will not engage. The transmission needs to be rebuilt, or figure out how to re-engage. It's possible that the transmission control module (TCM) may be at fault, or it could be a bad solenoid pack. I pulled into a shopping center, picked up some supplies, and when I got back to the car to leave, it wouldn't budge. Prior to this, recently the transmission would slip in the morning the first time it was put in gear, but would drive fine after it warmed up, with no issues during long trips (San Jose to LA last month), and no issues throughout the day (if it was used within 6 to 8 hours). So after changing the transmission fluid and filter, I would just warm up the car, rev the engine once with it in gear, and off it would go. No check engine light, so the issue doesn't code on a scantool, and the transmission fluid is still a brilliant pink/red. Aamco says it needs a rebuild; not sure if I trust that advice since they wouldn't give details, and they were hoping to rebuild it right there (or fix the real issue and charge as much as possible).
This vehicle was considered salvaged in 2013 due to a fender bender to the rear driver side door, broken rear suspension shackle bracket, wheel and hubcap. The bracket, hub, and wheel were replaced. The rear door still has the little dent at the bottom, but it doesn't affect function and doesn't leak. Still missing the rear left hubcap (currently missing on the right rear since the last tire rotation). The frame was not damaged and the car passed CHPre-certification.
The Ugly: The paint has oxidized on the roof and spots on the hood and trunk. Rust inhibitor primer has been applied to prevent rust from forming where the base paint oxidized through (no rust, verified by CHP during their inspection). The exterior simulated chrome trim shows crazing with cracks in the plastic outercoat. The actual chrome trim pieces are in great shape. The rubber trim to the driver's door window is cracked with an open gap which I have usually covered with electrical tape each fall with no issues, as I haven't come across a replacement yet. The front and rear Chrysler emblems were stolen last month (Thank you Los Angeles). Someone tweaked the passenger side windshield wiper blade last weekend.

Registered through April 2017. Smog will be the responsibility of the new owner as I cannot drive this vehicle as is, but it passed last year with no problem.
Still a lot of potential, especially for someone with a shop - so buy it now before I sell it to the Pick-n-Pull or trade it in.I wish I could just rebuild it myself (about $200 for rebuild kit, solenoid pack, filter and fluid), butI am unable to repair or part out where I am, and I can't afford to replace the transmission (as advised by Aamco). Compatible with40TE, 41TE & F4AC1transmission kits. Buyer should be prepared to tow as the transmission won't engage.Great for parting out with all the original gear, and an engine worth $300+ on craigslist, seats, panels, electronic blocks, wiring harness, ECM ($100), glass ($100+), tires, hubcaps ($30+ ea). Get it now before I set it to the dismantler for $350, or Dodge said they'd give me a $500 trade-in if I buy one of their cars.
Comes with original Owner's Manual, and some of the maintenance records.
