Re: 2003 SRT DD

My '01 hasn't had the static grounds since I bought it in 2004 with 69,000 miles. They were broken when I got it. I repaired them, but they only lasted maybe 10,000 miles before the wire broke again. My '99 doesn't have them either, and it has 270,070 on the originals. They should have stayed with t...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I think my '01's passenger rear bearing went at ~172,000, so....

But the rest have 210,000 on them. Go figure.

The '99 has ~270,000 something on all of them. Friggin show off. :lol:

Re: 2000 Neon shuts off while driving

The fuel pump relay contacts could be going bad. That would be about the only thing that would make the most sense from this. Crank sensors can shut the engine down with zero codes, but usually the engine either never starts again with that sensor, or it takes 5 to 20 minutes before the engine will...

Yeah, it is probably all grass parking. But given the heat, I would dread it being asphalt or concrete. Plus it would mean they would have to use water barrels to hold the tents down. That would probably take out the option of club tents, as driving stakes in the ground is faster/less work/wasted wa...

Re: Hi need a lil help!

Check to see if there is a battery blanket on the battery, and if it has an electrical connector on the side. The ambient air temp sensor on the elbow going into the air filter box can also give a battery light if it is unplugged or bad. 2003 and some 2004 neons used a sensor on the battery blanket ...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo 1gn: new wheels installed 3/23/19

The OEM gaskets are pretty decent, until you try to re use them. Once the screws are loosened, you may as well plan on replacing them. I used a hollow white door seal gasket on my '99. I glued it to the tail light and let the rubber type material seal against the body. Cost about $8 and time/effort....

Re: Read the How To for speaker replacement, have one question...

Most of those adapters attach directly to the door shell. To keep the angle, you'll have to make the replacement speaker fit to that. Honestly, it's been way to long since I installed speakers in my door to remember what I did or used. 1st gens (95 to 99) don't angle the door speakers, which would g...

Re: Intake manifolds

Ideally a staged throttle body would have a combined opening of less than a 70mm equivalent, unless you have some serious mods done to actually make use of that much air volume, and at that point you better have forged internals. If I were to use a staged TB, I would have both bores at about 40mm, e...

Re: Brake issues and Upgrade

The opposite brake hose might be collapsing internally to some extent, putting the brake bias onto the other wheel.

A tire that is not the same model as the other can do this too.

Can't say I recommend hard braking/locking a front tire at high speed though. Might earn a Darwin award.
