Figured I post up here with the newest addition to my fleet. I'm new to these turbo Dodge's so bear with me, lol.
Picked it up about a week ago now, previous owner only had it a few months. Claims it ran fine when he picked it up then developed a miss on #3 cylinder so he parked it. Got a fantastic deal on the car (I think).
From what I can tell it's all stock and not very messed with. Wiring all looks good and intact, interior is super clean, the rear seats look to have never been sat in, haha. Odometer shows ~128k, which seems right judging from the overall condition. It's got the fancy driver's seat with all the power motions, only one that doesn't work is the button closest to the seat back, mounted on the thigh bolster. I don't recall what it's for. It's also got what appears to be a factory CD player that doesn't work, lol. Thing ate one of my CD's the other night when I was tinkering with it.
Problems as far as I can tell now are minimal and/or typical:
- Miss on cylinder #3
- Tachometer wont go below ~1250RPM, but will rise about when revved
- Clutch pedal is very stiff, grabs very low
- Throttle pedal is very stiff
- Got some rust on the drivers floor pan
- Needs e-brake cables (got new ones with the car)
I'm sure I'll find more as I dig into it. I picked up a full set of service manuals on eBay, should be here this week. First order of business is a compression test...
The rest of my fleet consists of turbo Chrysler's (by Mitsubishi), lol.
