Afternoon everyone I have some issues I need resolved. If you could give me some help I would be greatful. I have a 94 B250 MarkIII, it has a 3.9 liter 3 speed in it.

First off it needs a tune up... how hard is it to do and what is the best way of doing so? Second what is the normal oil pressure reading during idle and high way operation? At idle it reads dead smack in the middle of L and H BUT at high way speed it reads in bettween the top marker in the middle of the guage kind of like 3/4 to 4/5's the way to hot or high whichever it is. Third the fuses for the radio AND the cruise control are both fine (all the fuses are) but they dont work is there a realy or something that these share or is it to seperate problems. And is there something in the engine compartment I'm missing or somewere in the van that I've overlooked. I hate that it dosen't have a OD but I'll deal with it, gas is pretty good though AMAZINGLY. And whats up with the air blowing thing from under the wheel ner nthe floor when you have the passenger side window down. I about froze my butt off the other nite.

The tune up is pretty basic, just pull the doghouse off to access the engine. The front two plugs can be a bit tight to get to, but nothing a universal socket can't handle.

You gave your reading for the oil pressure but asked if the reading was "way to hot"? If you're asking about oil pressure the reading are fine. If you're asking about coolant temperature then it's too high.

For the radio and cruise, you'll first need to check for power at the connector going to each of them. If there is power, then both units are blown. If there isn't power, then you'll need to start tracing the wires back until you find where the power stops.

The air blowing from under the wheel is the steering column seal being cracked, loose, or missing. The reason it's doesn't blow when the windows are up is that there is no cross ventilation. Once you open the window the air can come in because it now has a place to exit. You'll want to fix that problem before winter hits. :)

The air in the foot well could be coming from a vent. My 1993 had a manual slide vent in the driver's foot well. Check down near the parking brake pedal. Maybe Chrysler changed this with the new body style in 1994. :2cents:

Yes I just seen the vent on the outer kick panel today. Didn't see it before. secondly I am having some squeaking from the rear brakes I think. It only squeaks AFTER I let off the brakes any ideas?????

A dab of grease where the metal bracket of the brake shoe slides across the backplate will quiet that right down.
