About the 200
The Chrysler 200 is a mid-size sedan that was on the market between 2010 and 2016. During its time on the market, it saw a second-generation release in 2015.
It featured a 4-door sedan layout. In the Chrysler lineup, it sat just under the larger Chrysler 300.
Chrysler released the model as the successor to the Chrysler Sebring. Not only was it the successor, but it was simply a restyled and re-engineered of its predecessor.
Built on the Compact Wide platform, it featured the same two petrol engine options throughout its time on the market.
Engine options were dependent on which trim option was chosen, being the base LX, mid-tier Touring, and the top-tier versions, Limited and S.
The model was discontinued in 2015 due to poor sales and other issues. Interestingly, it received a lot of criticism for its rear-seat entry door, which was allegedly copied from the Hyundai Sonata. Sergio Marchionne, the CEO of Fiat Chrysler, openly thought of this as the Chrysler 200’s biggest shortcoming.
Marchionne later revealed that the company would be willing to bring the 200 back to the market at some stage.
The most common fault code associated with the 200 is P0128, which represents an issue with the coolant thermostat temperature.
When the coolant temperature sensor detects a low temperature, it signals to the powertrain control module that the cooling system may not be operating properly, particularly the thermostat system.
The cooling system is one of the most vital found in any car. It is responsible for protecting the engine and its various components from overheating. Cooling also helps keep the engine running optimally.
If the cooling system is not reaching operating temperature, it can cause decreased performance from the vehicle. These may not be very noticeable though.
One of the best fixes for this problem is simply to check the thermostat to see if it is functioning properly. Another simple one is checking the coolant levels. It is important to ensure it is not too high or too low.
The next most popular fault code for the Chrylser 200 is P0456, which is logged when the onboard computer detects a potential small leak in the evaporative emissions control system (EVAP).
Unfortunately, any problems with the EVAP system are notoriously hard to detect. The fact that this represents a small leak makes it even harder.
It is important to be thorough when it comes to looking for a leak in the system. Some mechanics will use a specialized diagnostic tool called a ‘smoke machine’ to help pinpoint any leaks.
However, one of the simplest solutions is to check that the gas cap is fastened properly and not damaged.
While not the most serious of fault codes, it is important to have this problem fixed to avoid fines from failed emissions tests.
