Another forum suggested the #1 fuel injector, so I replaced it. At first it didn't do any good, but over a few hours of driving it got a little better, but it's still missing according to the ECU, and it's still knocking/pinging every once in a while.

This is the order of the stuff I did.

Seafoam
Spark plugs
Oil change
Wires

Could it be a lifter?

I use 87, and I just recently seafoamed it. It's also throwing a misfire on cylinder 1. I cleared the code and its still missing really bad. It also backfired when I took it to the car wash.

Ticking/Pinging Under Load

Somewhat randomly, I hear a ticking/pinging coming from my engine. It only happens when I'm in gear, (although it has done it once out of gear), and only when I place a load on the engine. It is especially pronounced when I run the A/C. I'm changed the plugs, wires, and the oil, and it's still doing...

Ah. Ok, now I understand. This actually IS really easy. So assuming once I get it wired up and working, I just have to get the servo and I will have cruise control.

I got my switch in today, and I noticed that it only has the two wires (Positive and ground I'm assuming). So I would just use those two wires, correct? Also: On the wiring guide, the two places to solder the wires, should I wire both wires coming from the switch to one post, or one wire to each pos...

Should I trust this site? http://www.mydodgeparts.com/parts/2003/ ... /index.cfm

Call me a noob, but I'm a bit confused about the conversion of the stock CS. The guide says to solder the ground and positive for each switch? What if I'm using the mopar switch?

IIRC at least the airbag-plug definitely is different - so no direct fit. You could swap it as well as the switch plugs. On the older steeringwheels you have two cruisecontrol switches, on the later neons you have just one. Except you have the older steeringwheel installed. PT-Cruiser one-switch-th...

Re: Use 00-02 Clockspring in 05?

Is it possible? Obviously I need to do this for cruise control. I recently discovered that my car is pre-wired for CC, so as far as I understand, I just have to bolt it on and hook it up, but the availability of 03-05 cruise control clocksprings is slim to none. I haven't found a single one. Are re...

Ah. Noted. I knew the TB was around 2", and when I measured my last CAI, it wasn't quite 2.25", and was very restrictive and bogged down very easily.

Too bad they don't make a 55mm TB that doesn't require mods to function correctly. I would get the MPx 60mm, but I have an '05.

CAI Question

So I've gone through two different CAIs. The first one I had was (roughly) 2.25" piping, two pipes, one between the manifold and TB, and one that bent down into the fender well. The one I have now has two 3" diameter pipes, one coming from the TB into the resonator hole, and then one going to the fi...

That doesn't answer my question. I neglected to mention that my high beam has three aiming screws instead of two. Knowing which screw did what would be lovely.

Projector High Beam Aiming

So I bought these projector headlights, and i Was wondering if anyone with the same or similar has managed to understand which screw does what with the high beam alignment. I gathered that one of them moves it right...and that's it.

Low beams stay on when high beams come on?

I have a pair of projector headlights, and I was wondering if it would be detrimental (if not illegal) to my housing, and how I would go about that. Like, tap into what wires and such.

I'm sure there are thousands of these questions, but there aren't any that answer my specific application entirely. I have a '05 SXT 2.0 SOHC (duh). I'm wanting to put one on, but I don't know where to pull it from. I've read some places to pull from a 1GN R/T, some to use a 2GN R/T, and some to use...

Drill a hole into it is. I already bought this one, and I was hesitant about spending $20 on a knob, much less $40 on one that I don't like the look of :P. For the record: Never, EVER JB weld the knob to the shifter. It was a b**** to get off. I had to take a hacksaw to it. Worst experience of my li...

Shifter Knob

I currently have a short throw shifter, and I am using a AutoZone shift knob, JB welded to the stick. What I'm wanting to do is, when my new shifter comes in, I want to be able to put on the knob, and make it stay, but still be able to remove it. I'm thinking of drilling a hole or two in the shifter...

Replaced my spark plugs with autolite coppers. Gapped them to .035". Pulled the old plugs and discovered they were gapped all the way to .44ish. Explains a little bit I guess. I tried to replicate the backfire by popping the gas several times, at both cold, medium, and hot. No backfire. But that doe...

Backfire? and how to fix it?

I have a '00 Neon SE(ES/non SXT or RT) with a 2.0L motor and mtx. My timing belt went last year and bent 8 valves (presumably 4 intake and 4 exhaust on cylinders 2 and 3). Needless to say, the head was practically rebuilt and timing belt was replaced. About six months later, I installed a short ram ...
