    Yep,

    This is my first post on Allpar.com! Some of you may know me as Handy from PTCruiserLinks, PTCrew or one of the LX or Dodge Charger forums. It should be noted that while I am an ASE Certified Master Automotive Tech and an excellent lover, I primarily work as a Safety Engineer among other things and I haven't worked as a professional mechanic since I was young strapping lad with long sexy flowing hair before college. And even then, I mainly worked on big trucks and heavy equipment. Nowadays, I enjoy working on Mopar cars for fun and relaxation. And I help others when I can.

    Mopar cars I own include the following:

    2019 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Premium. Mods include front camera, ZL1 Addons DELUXE rock guards, red SRT start button, LED headlights, and various BCM changes using a Z-Automative Tazer. This is my sweetie's (wife's) everyday driver:

    My everyday driver is a tastefully modified 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona. Among many, primary mods include short headers, R1 Concept brakes, custom stereo, engine dress-up, catch can and Diablo Sport 93 Octane tune.

    I also have a heavily modified 2007 PT Cruiser Turbo Convertible that pulls 15 psi of boost.

    And I have a 2003 Dodge Ram Quadcab that I bought new in November 2002. It had around 240,000 miles on it and is still going strong.

    I am very glad to be here and look forward to joining in on the fun!

    Hey Todd, welcome to Allpar. For some reason, I thought you'd been a member here for years! Nice to have another buddy join up. Todd is a PT Cruiser guru for any of you guys that have one. He loves those things for some reason! LOL

    In the top right corner, hover over your name until a dropdown box appears.

    In the avatar link, it'll give you an option for uploading a new photo.

    ...Very nice rides. some one on the site suggest I contact you for mopar and maybe pt cruiser lifters....my problem is the lifters ( I think bleed down over nite ) when I start the 2.4l non turbo up in the am it has a numbers of lifters making noise, after 2-3 mins all is quite, the next time for the noise is in the next day am...the pt is a 2002 and I don't want to spend a lot of money on lifters,.. I have tried a few valve lifter cleaners with negative results...I was hoping to get a good used/new set on the cheap...I have 10w 30 in it now..thanks miller

    You'd be better off sending him a PM, Todd is not on here much, but if you send him a PM, he will get an email, and then check this site.
