      DirtMcGirt replied to the thread 420A List of issues.
      That is quite the list considering the mileage and it being dealer sold, but prioritize and knock them out one at a time.First off, the passenger side motor mount has to be removed to access the timing components. If that’s the part you’re...

      If the ecu is reporting codes properly, and none exist, you should at least get “55” representing “end of codes”. The fact that you aren’t getting any indication at all, to me suggests that either the bulb is blown or the ecu is bad. This is a...

      “You got a link for the bearing?”Courtesy of 2GNT.comhttps://www.mcmaster.com/5972K86/Price has gone up a bit over the years, but still a third of the price of the whole pulley.

      I can’t comment as to wether or not that is the correct part, but if you wanna save a few bucks the bearing itself can be removed and replaced. Also, just to be clear, I’m talking about the bearing of the tensioner pulley for the power steering...

      Are you looking for stock replacement or aftermarket/forged?

      These pics are from a ‘95, so things may not be exactly the same. They show both ends of the hardlines. If they don’t exist on your car, maybe someone began an evap delete and didn’t finish??

      In the diagram below, part 4 is a set of hardlines that run along the passenger frame rail in the engine bay. The top line has a nipple at the end. You should see it if you look in the area below the shock tower after the timing cover. I believe...

      Have you checked your throttle cable adjustment? I had a similar issue (minus the bubbling coolant in the overflow) after my rebuild. Idled fine after startup, but once I got it out on the road, the idle slowly made its way up over 3k. Pulled...

      OP, be aware that a GT/PT or SRT4 bottom end isn't a bolt-n-go affair with the 420a head. There is an enlarged oil passage that must be addressed to run the two together.Early cloud cars came with a steel pan, which was later changed to cast...

      I have mine running on the stock 95 non-turbo ecu. Other years, not sure. As far as the cam magnet, head over to neons.org. There is a wealth of 2.4 swap info there as well, including specifics regarding the cam magnet.Yes, it bolts right up...

      This post over at 2gnt.com should answer most of your questions. I have completed the swap, however on my second trip out on the town, the freeze plug on the head behind the timing belt cover blew out so the car is down and I'm in the process of...
