Would this be the same on a regular neon? Just curious because with the old car after sitting for a couple months starting it up there was definitely an air type noise coming from the vents. It would go away when accelerating, then once you shifted and were crusing at speed it would come right back.

Still was my daily driver for a few months until the reg expired this month. They won't let me re-register without getting the car inspected... and now a few day...

Ok after doing some searching rear main is on the trans side so that cannot be where all that oil is coming from... Oil sender switch and cam seal were done a year or two ago... Leaks maybe a drop a day, if that. Might just be leftover from when sender switch was leaking before?

Thanks! What years have dual fans? I was thinking a Pick-n-pull might have what I need. I grabbed one at Pick N Pull, it was $40-60 I think. Had to get one because all the replacement radiators I could find are for automatic trans so the tabs were different than the manual fan and I needed an autom...

what do 2.4l engines run in the jy around you? Seem to be anywhere from $500-1000 $800 is what i see them at usually. 2.0l $400-500 This made me laugh. Your Neon took out a truck. Looks like your car is coming together nicely on getting it up to date on maintenance and cleaning it up. Haha... a ben...

Finally got some motivation, so I figure I would start a build thread to help me keep this going. My friend got me into neons a couple years ago, he has a 98 rt and then had several 2gn that he would pick up and flip. Somehow he convinced me to buy one :rofl: Picked it up with 95k, he had already do...

I swapped my 02 for an 03 bumper from onlinepartsbin.com. They also painted it steel blue, there was some overspray or rough spots along the edges of the bumper but nothing that was a big deal to me. Fit is good at least

Had a 2.4 turbo in it, then was swapped back to the stock 2.0. Kept the trans in cause of the phantom grip, and gas mileage i suppose.

Sold btw
