Two days ago I had a bad overheat condition with my PT. I went to pull out of a parking lot and found myself with a bad rough idle, I checked and my temp gauge was maxed out. Very scary and I shut...

Knocking Sound & Really Full Oil?

Okay, so my cruiser has always had this odd sort of chug-like knock to it. It's had this since around 105k miles and currently, has 130k miles. The sound itself has never changed much. However, my...

Re: Rough Feeling Around 40mph, Pedal Vibration/Wheel Vibration

One wheel bearing was replaced around 30k miles ago.

How do you check the wheel bearings? Just check for wheel movement?

Re: No Power From Alternator After Trans Swap

Thank you all for your help!

I didn't have the green wire attached to the starter. Guess I went too quick and overlooked it. :o

Re: No Power From Alternator After Trans Swap

What does this green wire do? I'll take a look.



The battery originally had enough charge to start the car (several times). I don't think it would be low enough to cause this much of a draw....

Re: No Power From Alternator After Trans Swap

Do I need to take it to a Chrysler shop for that? Any idea on the cost?

Also, the vehicle will not make it to a shop, it barely lasted going five blocks. :)

No Power From Alternator After Trans Swap

Re: Transmission Mount Bolt Wont Tighten?

These bolts go directly down into the transmissions mount bracket. This bracket sits directly onto the transmission, so there is no way to get under it.

Furthermore if the hole is malformed the...

Re: 325 For a Used Transmission With 118k?

The thing is, I could get it and it could work wonderfully for years, or I could get it and it could die six months later.

My biggest fear is the latter.

Re: 325 For a Used Transmission With 118k?

It was hit on the back side, insurance totaled the car. Low speed collision. I don't think that could really affect the drive train too much.

Prices around here vary but most are 300+ unless you...

Re: Turbo Trans in Non Turbo PT?

I'm 90% certain it was the converter on mine that failed. If I had the ability, I would just get a new converter and call it done. But I would still need some way to ensure the contaminants are out...
