Replies: 7

I just thought of something, does anyone know that if a poorly bent pipe section, like for example the 45 degree bend that goes over the rear axle, would be able to cause sound waves to bounce around and cause the droning that I am getting or is that impossible? The reason i say poorly bent is becau...

Hmm so rear main seal or camshaft seal? I found some drips on the actual bottom of the tranny but it is hard as hell to see where they are coming from. From the looks of the book this is gonna be a hard home fix. I only have 25k miles, kinda weird?

To be more specific to anyone reading this thread, I am using a polisheduniversal magnaflow which is yes, straight through in design, plus it is a single walled and has two tips coming straight out. I am getting loud droning going up hills at a certain rpm range (3k to 4k). I am sure that systems th...

Tranny/Clutch Leak

I pulled that boot off after a little wipe and looked inside, didn't see anything, seems to be a slow leak. Suggestions? Also what exactly is this part called?

That sounds cool no doubt, but one of my main concerns is volume, everyone has their own tastes when it comes to volume and describing it, and it is hard to tell from sound clips. My current setup is too loud for me even with 18" resonator. How loud is your setup, including in-cabin? (including the ...

Cat-back System + swaybar?

So i have been reading on magnaflow and other sites that their cat-back exhaust systems will not fit the 2gn neons with a swaybar installed, anyone disprove this or have seen one that works? How about the thermal R&D and other rear sections? I assume the r/t rear section will fit? btw, not lookin fo...

What do you guys recommend to rid myself of highway drone. a.k.a. prolonged 3k rpm driving. A long glasspack as I have read alot about...or a resonator. The drone really kills me on longs drives. My setup is just the stock piping with a magnaflow muffler comming straight out the drivers side.

It was kinda expensive though, but i may look for it again. Yeah I am still thinking about at least a zune a...

cd player/headunit with USB

Ok, if anyone on here has used the USB function on their particular stereo, please let me know how well it works (or not). For example, i want to hook up a 80gb external harddrive and put ALL my music on it so i dont have to mess with anything. I know it has been done before but they didn't say how ...

front pass control arm bushing = dead?

So, while rotating tires i noticed this after the control arm was hanging down after the tire was off. Looks like the bushing is split, time for replacement?

Actually it is happening below 3k rpm, I have kinda thread jacked phenom but he hasn't posted since 2005 so I think i am good for now :D And to clear things up I haven't gotten any engine codes. Still think it is the TPS/o2/flow/coil ?

Ok Injector cleaner didn't bring improvement. I may try wires next but...I keep reading about the pcm flash that you can get and that 03's seem to suffer from as it is a TSB, there are many threads on this one. Do you think the stumble matches the symptoms of this TSB? I didn't see anyone mention it...
