Re: Help me to pick a new car

What about a GTI? You can have those in autos. The back seat is roomy and there is hatch space. When I looked at one, they were having a kickass deal on a brand new one. I was really close to buying it but for a little less money, I bought a fully loaded used ST.

Re: OMG EPIC THREAD

Little late to the show (snow?)...but a couple of weeks ago we had back to back noreasters. The first storm dumped a little more than a foot of HEAVY wet snow. A week later, we got 26" of lighter snow. The pile of snow on the SRT was taller than me. The nyg was cleaned off after the first storm and ...

Moving on...upgrade?

So my neon started acting up this winter due to this extreme cold we had a month back. The power steering line failed and was pissing oil everywhere. Due to the corrosion, I didn't think I would be able to fix it (I did). So I started looking around for a new whip. With all the rust, no clear coat, ...

I do not have any pictures of the bent mount not that pictures would help. The part of the mount that was bent was the section that runs from the bushing to the frame section just below the battery. It was just slightly off. This mount was for a 2001 MTX.

So what ended up being the issue? Just the fuel injectors or a combination of injectors and fuel pressure regulator.

From what I understand, you can use the 1st gen springs but you still need to use the 2gn struts because the 2gn knuckle is different than the 1st gen. You could always try to find some srt4 lowering springs as well. From my experience, lowering springs do not deliver the best (read smoothest) ride....

Yeah, it was pissing me off because I couldn't duplicate it when the front wheels were in the air. I thought it was coming from the belt section so I removed all those mounts multiple times and found nothing. Oh well, the noise is gone now so I am happy. :thumbup:

Gotta learn the hard way.

It can't be much colder here (I'm in Southern NH) but I could almost guarantee you would numb doing even the most basic stuff in the weather (outside of course). Suppose to be wicked cold tomorrow though.

Well, I believe the problem has been solved. The transmission mount (which I replaced with anchor brand or similar) wasn't made correctly. The mount has/had a slight bend in it where it would rub against the frame causing this vibration when the engine moves toward the driver side (hard right turns)...

Steering wheel vibration while turning sharp right 2001 R/T

Problem: Vibration in steering wheel when taking sharp right turn (and only right turn). Feels as if something is rubbing. Goes away when straightened out and it also (seems to be) RPM related. If I take same right turn in neutral, the vibration doesn't seem to be there. Also, under heavy accelerati...

When I get a place of my own, this will be "mod" number 1. The drop light just doesn't do it for me. Its either in the way or I have nothing to hook it onto. With those lights, you can actually see what you are working on! Nice job

No real progress on the project car but made some progress on the parts car. Ripped the body kit off and the exhaust. Debating on making it a race car or just plain scrapping it. It had a Mopar stainless exhaust on it which I will be putting on my project car. http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e399/...
