:yeahthat: Both of the above are possibilities. If you have a You-Pull type of yard near you, they're both easy parts to pull.

I stand corrected. The door holes are hidden by the bottom weather strip trim. In all the years I've been on this site, I don't recall ever reading about someone having to clean them out because they're almost large enough to drive a truck thru. Yes, they do exist; but, I was going with the drain ho...

NO. There are, IIRC, 5 drain holes on each side of the car located in the pinch weld between the front and rear tires.

I told the owner he better hope there was no permanent damage. I told him he was lucky I stopped for coffee instead of heading home. I'd have been a lot farther away and engine would have been operating at a lot higher pressure.

The sad thing is they probably couldn't have cared less.

I've no idea how the cats are tied into the computers so have no idea the "fire" you might be playing with. Something tells me such a mod wouldn't do anything significant to this already relatively weak engine.

If you need a new nozzle or 2, the part number is 4805241AG. Dealer list is about $13.00 each. Don't know what your dealer sell them for. Also, you can probably get them at an auto parts store, although I can't find them on-line at Advance or NAPA. Hi Golfnut. Thanks for the part numbers. Both of t...

I did a full brake flush about 45 years ago and a partial PS flush on the '04 GTC about 5 - 6 years ago.

Nice ride. What engine in it? The R/T only comes with the 5.7L Hemi. The SRT started with the 6.1L Hemi,and then the 6.2L Hemi. I saw an SRT at Carlisle with a package (Scat Pack?) that I believe had a 6.4L Hemi. As I told a friend, the hemi is more fun to drive than the 2.7L. I wish they had made ...

If it developed over time, I would suspect the dowel pin has loosened. If it was that way from the start, I would suspect it is the balance link. I assume the frame was removed when the new top was installed and the installer may well have messed with the balance link. Anyway, here are the methods f...

I just changed the oil and filter on the R/T. I discovered the filter is so far recessed from the bottom of the oil pan I only hope I got it tight enough. As mentioned, I only hand tightened it; but, I gave it much more attention than the 2.7L to be as sure as possible it is fully tightened. And, I ...

I will scan the pages in my '04 FSM that have to do with adjusting the top and post them. Since the tops are interchangeable, I'm sure the adjustments are identical. Give me a short time to get this done. :thumbsup:

I got a cap wrench and tightened it about a 1/4 turn If you're tightening it 1/4 turn past hand tight I'm betting that is the problem. Try nothing more than hand tightening it - as tight as you can possibly get it - by hand. I know a young lad such as yourself can get it as tight as this old man, w...

I hand tighten it until I think I might have a stroke if I try to tighten it any more. I've never had a leak (or a stroke). And, it's on tight enough it always takes some effort to loosen it with an oil filter tool. I learned long ago using a filter wrench to tighten the filter is a definite :nono: ...

I have an air compressor but only use hand tools on the cars. Understand, I don't do a lot of the heavy work some on here do. I purchased the compressor several years back when I was replacing ALL the trim (windows and floor) in our house. In fact, I should probably sell it; but, I'm not ready to qu...
