Re: Can't get away from Neon's

My daughter complained about their Journey's fuel mileage, so they traded it on a 4WD Ram. :tardbang: :slap: My wife's Forester gets about 8 mpg or more better than the Journey did, and still has a good amount of go power. Most reviews claim the Forester lacks in power, but hey, I don't care, if th...

Re: 2002 Neon Tuned PCM Issues

In a non SKIM car, the VIN does not need to match. 2000 to 2002 non SKIM cars are plug and play, no VIN flashing required. But if the SKIM is there, and plugged in, the VIN and SKIM code has to match the car. VIN alone will not do it, the 4 digit SKIM code is also needed. The issue with a non SKIM P...

Re: 2002 Neon Tuned PCM Issues

Is Syked actually still flashing tunes? If so, you'll need to return it to him, and have the SKIM feature disabled, then once you get it back, unplug the SKIM module in the steering column. If the PCM sees the SKIM signal, it will once again lockdown. It automatically becomes a SKIM PCM once the SKI...

I guess I should have reverted to the first post. I don't want satellite that will go out every time there is a storm. I think that is the biggest myth they push. My parents have never lost satellite signal, and that has been in some pretty horrendous downpours and snow storms. They live where there...

Re: New Truck

Meh, a project log on a non neon isn't going to hurt anything. It's not like there are a ton of strict neon purist hanging out here. We're just lucky anyone interested in anything Mopar related are still using this site... Danteneon had a PL on his Caliber, so I don't see how a truck is any different.

Re: Midnight_Rider's progress log

So if a car is older than say 7 years, that absolves them of any liability? What a weak answer. Maybe they should only stick to towing new cars. That will be a booming business. Best of luck getting this resolved.... I asked if the studs were removed from the strut mount, as I figured the stock ones...

Re: Midnight_Rider's progress log

The general belief is the front doesn't do near as much as the rear brace anyways.

And like said, if you are under the hood a lot, it is more of a pain than a benefit.



But I'm sure that is more than evident at the moment... :/

Re: Midnight_Rider's progress log

Whether or not the towing company says they are not responsible, I would still go after them for damages. The driver could have easily put some short boards down for the tires to roll over so the front fascia would not scrape. (If that is what happened) It's not like that situation would be unavoida...

Re: New Truck

This truck gets 19 mpg according to the overhead console. Not bad for a V8. The sad part, (for Ford) is Dakotas in same era can smoke the Ranger in both power and fuel economy. My nephew learned that the hard way. He had a 90's Dakota, and traded it for a Ranger, even after we told him it was going...

Re: New Truck

I had forgotten about the oddball 6 bolt wheel pattern. The one thing that annoyed me about Dakotas. The canopy probably adds to the fuel mileage. My dad had a hard cover, and it made a huge difference in fuel mileage. It was a V6 5 speed, and it got 21 mpg. If you had to do something that required ...

Re: Midnight_Rider's progress log

Didn't KW make the SRT-4/Mopar Performance coilovers? If so, then they use the standard strut mount, which should have the pressed in studs, and the nut on the top. KW's generally get knocked because they don't come with the top mount/camber plates, and re use the factory mount. But for a simple bol...

Re: Midnight_Rider's progress log

A bolt has a nut on the end. It goes through a hole that has no threads in it, using the nut to thread into, and create the clamping force. A screw goes into the threaded hole in the body of whatever the part is clamped against. So the same part can be a screw, or a bolt, depending on how it used. P...

Re: Midnight_Rider's progress log

I take it the coilovers don't have spline'd studs in the top of the strut mounts? Or someone beat them out/tossed them to install the strut brace? It would be odd for those to fall out, if they were like the normal strut mounts, which I thought oem SRT coilovers used the same strut mount as the norm...
