    2014 dodge avenger tranmission leaks

    Yeah, it pops. Client car. It is now in heater for winter. The white leather apparently cost 11grand start to finish. Guy said it was harder to do interior than the orange pop. Anyway, love this site. Good camaraderie here.

    2014 dodge avenger tranmission leaks

    Now, our fun is water pumps on ford interceptors. Job bills 14hrs shop time. I don't even use the cam tools, don't even touch the cam chain anymore. Cut down time to a 7 or so hr job now. Next rumor, local law will be stuck with new charger with the hemi in it. Local tax bills will increase as...

    @ work, we are not seeing these 3.6l so much anymore. The local law enforcement is phasing out the charger and the phantom 200' ticket machines. So probably next year, will be doing mostly client car 3.6l's. Thx for taking time to post back that my advice helped you. I also took time to edit...

    torque limit is 8.8/9 ft pnd, after two cycles. I usually don't even bother torquing that. My knuckles don't even crack at that pressure. ;) Honestly, I do 5 of three per month easy, and my 18v dewalt limits just fine. In and out. I am so happy I was able to see that on pics. If you would not...

    Thx for the pics, your tranny is not leaking, it is the engine oil filter housing under intake plenum. Here is what it looks like, the o rings warp and they leak. This is a classic. The oil run down the tranny side in a major leak develops, ppl think it's the trans, nope, it is the engine oil...

    Jeeps with shift on column

    Pretty much anything AMC did that also had some column shifters that I "dare" say are almost identical to what you are asking. From javelins to eagle 4x4's I think. Alot of those jeeps from back then had GM shifter/steering columns, as proven by the keys delivered. Basically AMC mentality back...

    5 psi off is enough to cause problems. You really want 53 or more. It should not drop below that. Try removing the vac line to regulator, does FP rise in psi?. If you have a phone or laptop, something cheap like this should get you good live data...

    KOER should be a stable @ 55ish. Do you have a vac gauge handy?

    Anything withing 53 to 59, should be sufficient. Overkill, I still do not have answer to why vac is not on reg,
