Well...the dealer is raping me, $216 for one key. Smh. Maybe I missed something... why do you need a key? Did you lose or break your SKIM key? The car certainly won't start without it The grey coating broke off so it was just the black plastic with the chip inside. Maybe it fell in the snow or some...

Ah, changing the CTS! It's been so difficult, after finally figuring out how to unscrew the cam position sensor(heater cables in the way), i broke all of the hard plastic insulator off the wires to the cam sensor. It was extremely brittle, is it ok to leave the wires "free" like that? Assuming the ...

It could be your Coolant Temperature Sensor going bad, that is causing this issue. In fact, the 'symptoms' you describe, sound like a CTS problem. If the PCM cannot get a reading from the CTS, it will 'assume' the engine is at full warm-up, and hot enough to kick the cooling fans 'on'. This will af...

Hello, recently when we experienced a cold snap here my car would not run. It starts up, runs fine for 1-3 seconds and shuts off. I've tried giving it gas and it still shuts off. The Coolant Temperature Sensor light begins to flash when it does this. There is coolant in the reservoir and radiator, b...

Replacing Transmission

My transmission has a broken synchronizer for the 3rd gear. It's been this way for almost a year, I guess 20K miles or so. Anyway im thinking to buy a used transmission, does it matter if I get the tranny that comes with the turbo engine or not? I do intent to turbo my neon one day.

I know I'm kinda bringing this back from the dead, but, the pt stuff isn't just a bolt on affair. If you look at the neon calipers, they don't have any brackets, whereas the pt calipers do have brackets. You need to swap to the pt knuckles. And not just any pt knuckles. You need a specific year ran...

mine too! I owned a 2002 neon sxt earlier with only the exhaust pipe modified and it was way faster than the silver 2005 dodge neon I own now. On this one I slam the gas and it just doesn't feel like its doing anything. People drive it and say nothing is wrong with it, but I don't believe that becau...
