There are seven lines of information on the body code plate. Lines 4, 5, 6, and 7 are not used to define service information. Information reads from left to right, starting with line 3 in the center of the plate to line 1 at the bottom of the plate. When two plates are required, the Vehicle Shell Line last code space on the first plate will indicate CTD LH When a second plate is required, the first four spaces of each line will not be used due to overlap of the plates.

Information reads from left to right, starting with line 3 in the center of the plate to line 1 at the bottom of the plate.

The higher the grade number, the greater the bolt strength. Identification is determined by the line marks on the top of each bolt head. The actual bolt strength grade corresponds to the number of line marks plus 2. The most commonly used metric bolt strength classes are 9. The metric strength class identification number is imprinted on the head of the bolt.
The higher the class number, the greater the bolt strength. Some metric nuts are imprinted with a single-digit strength class on the nut face. Fasteners and torque specifications references in this Service Manual are identified in metric and SAE format. During any maintenance or repair procedures, it is important to salvage all fasteners nuts, bolts, etc.
If the fastener is not salvageable, a fastener of equivalent specification must be used. The symbols correspond to the controls and dis- plays that are located on the instrument panel.
The following chart will assist in converting metric units to equivalent English and SAE units, or vise versa. Also, use the chart to convert between millimeters mm and inches in. Refer to the Standard Torque Specifications Chart for torque references not listed in the individual torque charts Fig. The VIN consists of 17 characters in a combination of letters and num- bers that provide specific information about the vehi- cle.
The check digit is used by the manufacturer and government agencies to verify the authenticity of the vehicle and official documenta- tion. The formula to use the check digit is not released to the general public. The Month, Day and Hour of manu- facture is also included.
All communications or inquiries regarding the vehicle should include the Month-Day-Hour and Vehicle Identification Number. Chrysler permanently attaches the label in the engine compartment. It cannot be removed without defacing information and destroying the label. All hoses must be connected and routed according to the label.
The plate contains five lines of infor- mation: 1. Only lubricants bearing designations defined by the following organization should be used. Use only engine oils with multi- ple viscosities such as 5W or 10W These are specified with a dual SAE viscosity grade which indi- cates the cold-to-hot temperature viscosity range. Select an engine oil that is best suited to your par- ticular temperature range and variation Fig. The identifying notations are located on the front label of engine oil plastic bottles and the top of engine oil cans Fig.
Follow the service schedule that describes your driving type. No additive is known to be safe for engine durability and can degrade emission components. Generally it is not desirable to mix additive packages from different suppliers in the crankcase; there have been reports of low temperature engine failures caused by additive package incompatibility with such mixtures.
In addition, API classification defines the lubricants usage. At the bottom NLGI symbol is the usage and quality identification letters. The letter following the usage letter indicates the Fig. The following symbols indi- cate the highest quality.
Con- sult the appropriate sections in this manual for the correct application of these lubricants. The cooling system is designed around the coolant. The coolant must accept heat from engine metal, in the cylinder head area near the exhaust valves and engine block. The use of aluminum cylinder blocks, cylinder heads, and water pumps requires special corrosion protection.
If it loses color or becomes contaminated, drain, flush, and replace with fresh properly mixed coolant solu- tion. When replacing cool- ant the complete system flush must be performed before using the replacement coolant. Doing so will reduce the corrosion protection and may result in premature water pump seal failure. If non-HOAT coolant is introduced into the cooling system in an emergency, it should be replaced with the specified coolant as soon as possible. Sub- stitute fluids can induce torque converter clutch shudder.
The ATF is dyed red so it can be identified from other fluids used in the vehicle such as engine oil or antifreeze. The red color is not permanent and is not an indica- tor of fluid condition. As the vehicle is driven, the ATF will begin to look darker in color and may even- tually become brown. This is normal. Conse- quently, odor and color cannot be used to indi- cate the fluid condition or the need for a fluid change. Exceptions to this policy are the use of special dyes to aid in detecting fluid leaks.
These additives and others also claim to improve converter clutch operation and inhibit overheating, oxidation, varnish, and sludge. These claims have not been sup- ported to the satisfaction of DaimlerChrysler and these additives must not be used. Synthetic gear lubri- cants should be avoided. Exceptions to this pol- icy are the use of special dyes to aid in detecting fluid leaks. The uses of midgrade, octane rating of 89, gasoline is recommended for the 3.
The use of premium gasoline is not recommended. The use of premium gasoline will pro- vide no benefit over high quality regular gasoline, and in some circumstances may result in poorer per- formance. Light spark knock at low engine speeds is not harmful to your engine. However, continued heavy spark knock at high speeds can cause damage and immediate service is required. Engine damage result- ing from operation with a heavy spark knock may not be covered by the new vehicle warranty.
Poor quality gasoline can cause problems such as hard starting, stalling and hesitations. If you experi- ence these symptoms, try another brand of gasoline before considering service for the vehicle.
Over 40 auto manufacturers world-wide have issued and endorsed consistent gasoline specifications the Worldwide Fuel Charter, WWFC to define fuel properties necessary to deliver enhanced emissions, performance and durability for your vehicle.
We rec- ommend the use of gasolines that meet the WWFC specifications if they are available. Reformulated gasoline contain oxygen- ates, and are specifically blended to reduce vehicle emissions and improve air quality.
We strongly support the use of reformulated gaso- line.
