Re: Rear hub bearings

Okay kinda same topic, I have a front driver wheel bearing that is going and I need to get it replaced. My dad (BRR) says that I we are going to put his Knuckle from his ‘02 and use that to put on my car but I need to buy a new hub and bearing to be on the safe side since his knuckle hasn’t been us...

Re: 1997 Dodge Neon 2 door sport ACR

That's a hot mess.

ACR's also didn't come with fog light front fascia's. Doesn't mean it is original though.

I really don't want to ban anyone that isn't doing something truly detrimental, but when you give that response to someone who is sharing a moment of fun with their kids, it was over the line for me.

Re: Any new ECU options?

If your AFR is actually lean from that, you have other issues. An exhaust change, and a CAI are well within the stock PCM's capabilities. What are you using to monitor AFR? The biggest thing that would affect it from just that very minor, not really adding much power change, would be a tired o2 sens...

Re: Rear hub bearings

I used a Timken replacement (ebay) on my 2001, and didn't have any issues. A lot of it depends on how much, and what quality of grease they pack in the replacement bearing. Some die hard folks like to take the new bearing apart, and pack quality grease into them before use. All 2000 to 2005 rear hub...

Renault would not likely be interested in sharing Fiat Chrysler's body-on-frame platforms, which underpin the automaker's big pickups and SUVs in North America,
Um, more like just pickups. Pretty sure all the SUV's have been unibody for a few years.

Just further diluting of the gene pool.

Not really any rebadged Fiat cars I would buy either.
I still want a new Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack :D

So do I, but those aren't built on a fiat platform. Yet....

I would still but a Challenger, Charger, 300, or Ram, if I had the need and cash.

Being an '04 neon, swapping in the PT engine would have been relatively painless. Especially when you have the entire donor car to get all the little bits and pieces from.

Re: Hello Neon drivers!

Unfortunately the 2gn neons tend to rot out badly in the salt belt. You'll want to check the crossmember for the front suspension, as well as the lower control arms, as they can rot pretty bad too. The 2003 through 2005 crossmembers aren't as bad, but they are not immune to rusting out. I have seen ...

Unless the engine shut off, the cam sensor won't leave you stranded. The PCM just fires the injectors in batch mode vs sequential. For future reference, if it did kill the engine, you should be able to unplug the connector, and run in batch mode. It is very simple to get to on DOHC engines, so knowi...

RPM doesn't really matter. If damage is happening, it's happening. It's just a matter of how many times the piston hits the valve(s) after the first hit.
