Tie Rods

Note: Much of this happened last year, but gas prices are finally getting to me, and I'm pulling my Neon out of the garage. My '03 SXT seems to need new tie rods due to my sister hitting a truck when changing lanes (smashed in the front quarter panel too). The dealership, when I went to have my car ...

well that MIGHT be a slightly different story. it all depends on the shop. the killer would have to be the labor not on pulling the old one out, but putting the new one in. it's IMPOSSIBLE to recreate the spot welds going from the crossmember to the frame and really hard, but completely possible, t...

Well turns out you folks were right. The tube wasn't slipped onto the male throttle body end properly. Slipped it on, did a computer reset, and things are fine :D.

I wasn't working on it right before. I think that the tubing that connects to the intake manifold wasn't properly tightened up after removing the air filter housing to replace the camshaft position sensor is a bit loose. I'll check it out tonight.

Thanks!

Took a look at the throttle plate, was working just fine. Local mechanic said it was probably the motor inside. Going to get it looked at and probably fixed tomorrow.

Code 0068

According to the internet, it's my throttle position correlation. My Neon started throwing it after I tried a full on acceleration from about 15 MPH to 90 MPH (long, empty stretch of highway). It's revving up extremely high, and won't let me get above 4.5k RPM (made going up a hill hard). Any idea w...

Components Needed for N2O

Yes, I've searched, and found some information, but not info on what I'll need to upgrade from stock. For my Neon, what things will I need to upgrade in the engine (pistons, rings, et cetera) so it'll be able to take N2O? I'm assuming that rings at the very least is a given, but what else? Seals, ga...

In that case, best of luck. It takes time and patience, but pays off.

Just remember to not be too cocky or gaudy about your work, or everyone and their dad will wind up running their keys along your car. That includes kanji & hanzi :P.

Have fun!

Head checking question

When removing the head from my Neon to check the cylinders and valves, will I need a new gasket to replace the old one? Or will it remain intact after the head removal?

My car has nearly 83k miles for reference.

Please, if you're going to mod your neon, be humble about it. Or start with engine stuff. How skilled are you with all of that?

Don't worry, I've done worse ;). Try loosing a screwdriver in your hand... or spending two hours trying to pull a plug out without realizing that you can just push the wire boot into it and pull it back.

I'd love that :). Thanks.

I'm also looking at draining the diff if possible. Is that as simple as just undoing a screw and letting it drain, or would I have to crack it open?

Transmission Fluid Capacity

I just picked up a tranny filter at Autozone, and am planning on dropping the pan and replacing the filter. How much fluid will I need to buy to restore what's taken out? I'm driving a 2003 2.0 SXT.

Thanks.
