Re: Random posting

That's the thing, I have no idea where it would be located. If I didn't have a neighbor that walks her dog, and doesn't even live on the same road, I wouldn't know much of the history of our property. The well being up on the hill was an obvious sign that there was something there, but apparently it...

Re: Random posting

I don't know what was with the trend of having a "Pump Room". My grandparents well, (90 feet deep) hammered the casing in the ground, then built the house, with the well in it's own little room. That's where the water softener, and pressure tank are all located, "neat and tidy". When the pump motor ...

Re: Rear hub bearings

I used a Timken replacement (ebay) on my 2001, and didn't have any issues. A lot of it depends on how much, and what quality of grease they pack in the replacement bearing. Some die hard folks like to take the new bearing apart, and pack quality grease into them before use. All 2000 to 2005 rear hub...

Re: Dodge/Chrysler News

Renault would not likely be interested in sharing Fiat Chrysler's body-on-frame platforms, which underpin the automaker's big pickups and SUVs in North America,
Um, more like just pickups. Pretty sure all the SUV's have been unibody for a few years.

Just further diluting of the gene pool.

Not really any rebadged Fiat cars I would buy either.
I still want a new Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack :D

So do I, but those aren't built on a fiat platform. Yet....

I would still but a Challenger, Charger, 300, or Ram, if I had the need and cash.

Being an '04 neon, swapping in the PT engine would have been relatively painless. Especially when you have the entire donor car to get all the little bits and pieces from.

Re: Hello Neon drivers!

Unfortunately the 2gn neons tend to rot out badly in the salt belt. You'll want to check the crossmember for the front suspension, as well as the lower control arms, as they can rot pretty bad too. The 2003 through 2005 crossmembers aren't as bad, but they are not immune to rusting out. I have seen ...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Unless the engine shut off, the cam sensor won't leave you stranded. The PCM just fires the injectors in batch mode vs sequential. For future reference, if it did kill the engine, you should be able to unplug the connector, and run in batch mode. It is very simple to get to on DOHC engines, so knowi...

RPM doesn't really matter. If damage is happening, it's happening. It's just a matter of how many times the piston hits the valve(s) after the first hit.

I never had an issue with the XJ hood latches, but then I kept them well oiled with motor oil.

That was a SOB to get it to move, and then keep from re seizing, even after I ...

The bearings can also rattle in the trans with low fluid. But yeah, I have never heard anything like you describe from low fluid in an MTX. The oscillating sound might be from a CV joint. Or possibly from tires. Swapping wheels around might eliminate it, if it is tires creating a weird harmonic soun...

If you're going to stroke a 2.0 to make that kind of power, you may as well just start off with a 2.4. You could always have a custom de stroked crank/pistons made, if you do...
