  1. PT Cruiser
    My Car is a Touring TURBO, if you have a N/A it should be a lot easier. A lot easier if you have 2 people. I'm blessed to have my "Crew Chief" Son-In-Law who is a Diesel Mechanic helping me. Especially when jacking and lowering the engine and transmission to gain access. If you're changing...

    04 PT Black Touring Turbo, inherited about 7 years ago when my father passed away. Had 40k when I got it and now has 47k. I had it body worked and painted had some small dings. I put about 1k a year on it as it's our second car and only use it when I go trap shooting or store. The car looks...

    Check out this great link: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msFMU8Kw_v8 This very smart man shows you how to modify the engine bay sealing surface to let the hot air escape from the engine bay. I did the mod and checked it with a digital thermometer gun and it does help, you can feel...

    I recently got an 08 Caliber 1.8L stick and I have wanted to know if I am able to install a turbo in it. Has anyone else done this?

    If you have been waiting for your chance to drive the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL with the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and the eTorque mild hybrid system, your wait should just about be over. We have received word that the first examples of the first-ever Wrangler hybrid have started arriving in...
  7. PT Cruiser
    My wife's 2003 PT Turbo went into "limp mode" this afternoon on her way home. It has 125,000 miles, and I replaced the ECM in June of 2015 (and the timing belt before that and the turbo a year ago). Of course I purchased the 2-Year warranty on the ECM! Thursday night I was backing it out of...

    The first Jeep to have FCA’s brand-new Global Small Engine (GSE) series will, unsurprisingly, be the Renegade — which was, after all, based on Fiat dimensions, heavily reworked for “trail readiness.” The current model has a long-in-the-tooth 1.4 turbo, criticized by some for its...

    The Wrangler has long been criticized for its low gas mileage — though, when it had competitors such as the FJ Cruiser, they had roughly the same mileage. It seems it’s hard to make a go-anywhere 4x4 that can stand up to the worst trails, remain stable on the highway, and pass all the safety...

    Looking at selling my LeBaron coupe. The car has been in my family for 30 years. It was purchased new by my grandfather, who kept in garaged and only drove it infrequently from his home in Seattle to Burien and back. In 2000, he gave the car to me. I've tried to care for the car and have...

    In a discussion in the Allpar forums , the question was posed: Why are automakers moving away from V8 engines again? At FCA US, the most powerful V8s are likely to continue for Ram and specialized Dodges, but the base 5.7 Hemi could be running on borrowed time. A turbocharged V6 can equal the...
