  10. failed smog check with 1145 NOS measured at 15mph ( average is 237) 1034 NOS measured at 25mph ( average is 199 ) can it be a broken EGR? clogged fuelfilter even? bad O2 sensor?
  11. thanks guys!~...so since I have the 2.2 chrysler turbo I will be on the safe side...but the question still remains... do I just buy a new belt and put it in? or do I have to perform those specific operations in order to get it right???
  12. doing 65 on easter sunday...timing belt snapped...barely able to pull over then cranked it 3 times...nothing...pushing it off the road in neutral..now sits in driveway of a helpful person 400 yards off of the freeway, 23 miles from home... now...do I have that kind of engine that is totalled when the timing belt snaps? or am I easter lucky and able to put it back together ( of course with the right tdc ) 4cyl chrysler turbo
  13. lou! thanks for the hint!! its a 4cyl 2.2 turbo 3 speed....so I just change the fluid and the filter and I am good? and what type of fluid am I supposed to use? thats cool!
  14. me again....tc drives great...but slips when shifting to the 2nd gear...never to 3rd...and not all the time...went up a very steep hill the other day ( slow) and it was slipping while driving...it never did that before... never e ven slips when accellerating or when I really press on the gas... anyone familiar with that issue? is my trans completly f$@^ or could it be a small fix? let me know....because if this is a major thing...you guys can buy my tc!
  15. great...so I put up this ad on cl and someone offers me a headlight plus cornerlight in pristine condition, sends me great pics and the price was also great...package gets here, cornerlight is broken off, plastic is chipped and screws are broken off all connection points...headlight chipped and here's the thing...it is not an original tc light ( straight and made in italy) it is convex and made in japan!..the glass is glued onto the plastic frame and fits it... now I just hope I get my money back... anyone has one? real and not 400 bucks?
  16. hey fellow tc lovers... found a burgundy hood for my red tc...needs to be repainted... got ofer to get it done for $553, including uv coat and color match... seeeeeeeems like a good price...unless you tell me something else... oh..does someone have a red passenger fender for my 89?! someone just mentioned schwab....seems like dirt cheap no quality...right?
