  1. I use Castrol Magnetec 10W-30 engine oil in my '90 TC V6 and it seems to function well. Castrol Magnetec oil is supposed to have the ability to cling to all surfaces and prevent "dry" starts, which they claim is when 75% of all wear occurs. No engine is going to last forever but this may help to prevent unnecessary wear.
  2. Just as an aside to the problem of small gage wires, as mentioned. Wouldn't the use of LED headlight bulbs instead of the normal halogen bulbs, reduce the wattage significantly and hence limit current draw to the point that a small gage wire would be adequate, without the attendant overheating? Perhaps this would be a simple solution that would undoubtedly be less costly than installing relays. Plus, the LED bulb would certainly outlast the life of the car!
  3. Thanks for your response Turbo Kane. If anyone reading this has what I am looking for please reply to my email address or to this site.
  4. Hi Turbo Kane, I'm looking for the driver's side ginger colored plastic seat belt cover that attaches to the seat on the left side near the floor. It must be in good condition, no cracks and complete. Let me know if you have this item and cost including shipping to Williamsport, PA. 17701. I can pay with PayPal. Email me at: rmtroutman@ gmail.com or respond on this site. Thanks.
  5. Yes, I agree with Hemi, a 50/50 mix of a quality brand extended life anti-freeze and distilled water will be all you need. Make sure you buy straight anti-freeze and not the prediluted type that you don't add water to. They are about the same price and a gallon of straight anti-freeze and a gallon of distilled water is a lot less expensive that two gallons of the prediluted antifreeze. Think about it.
  6. Checkout Rockauto.com. They have remanufactured rear calipers at reasonable prices for the TC plus some rebuild kits.
  7. Hi, I have an original radio-cassette player from a 1990 Chrysler TC Maserati. See attached photos. I replaced this unit with a new unit and have it as a spare. It worked perfectly, prior to being replaced. I will sell the unit pictured for $60.00., shipping included. If you are interested let me know at : rmtroutman@gmail.com. Thanks.
  8. If these rims have the center cap, I would be interested. Let me know the condition. I'll await your response. Respond to: rmtroutman@gmail.com. Thanks.
  9. Hi, I need one good wheel center cap, if you have any available from your parts car. Please reply to: rmtroutman@gmail.com. Thanks.
  10. Hi, While I don't need any radios, I have several myself, I could use one good wheel center cap. If you have any available, reply to rmtroutman@gmail.com. Thanks.
  11. Hi everyone, What I've found in researching these wheel center caps: The following is a list of suppliers and prices. rdiperformance.com $50.00 each plus shipping of $5.00 via Priority Mail. Contact: Rick TCparts .com $45.00 each plus shipping of approx. $5.00+. Contact: Larry Arizonaparts.com $35.00 each plus shipping of approx. $5.00+ Arizonaparts is closed until Septembershipping 20th. Contact: RearCounter.com These are all new caps in original packaging. I hope this helps. If anyone one else has center caps for sale, please post with prices and shipping.
  12. Hi everyone, l'm seeking the center cap for the OEM wheel. Either very good used or NOS. Anyone have one for sale? You can email me at : rmtroutman@gmail.com with particulars. Thanks.
  13. If anyone is looking for a NEW upper radiator hose for the 2.2 DOHC engine, check RockAuto.com. They have moulded and flexible ACDELCO and Gates hoses for less than $10. Lower hoses by the same makers for less than $20. Granted they are not the original Chrysler hoses, but does that really matter?
  14. My '90 TC, number 5567, was manufactured in Oct. '89, and it too has the same part number and use Dexron II imprinted on the dipstick. I agree, with earlier comments, use only Mopar ATF +3 or +4. Use of Dexron transmission fluid will not give satisfactory performance in the Ultradrive transmission.
