    1G : Driver's side shoulder belt not retracting when door is closed.

    Yes, I do have dome light and even tried to see if that's the issue. I didn't know of the one in the door frame. Where would that one be at? thx

    1G : Driver's side shoulder belt not retracting when door is closed.

    Little help on this, if possible:As with older cars, things will begin to show up and want to break down. My 1990 Laser is showing a bit of that.Got it in the vehicle yesterday, and the shoulder belt wouldn't retract after closing the door and key was inserted. Passenger shoulder belt works...

    1G Low voltage while running/WOT

    Oh, another thing I forgot to mention:that ALT needs to BREATHE !They get hot when generating the backup current for the battery. And if your battery is weak, that ALT is charging all the time and getting super hot, where, pretty soon, out goes the regulator and you got a bad ALT.keep it...

    1G Low voltage while running/WOT

    I get my reman ALTS from an alternator shop. Never do anything with Crapzone.Battery posts and connectors must be metal bright before tight connections. Check grounds, make sure they're super tight, and add more grounds, like Chassis, frame, motor block - since DC current runs Negative to...

    2G stock engine temp gauge stopped working

    A little help on this end also:My Temp gauge is doing a similar, but in reverse.It works fine, but will suddenly peg to the hot for a few, then head to where it usually rests, which is right before the half mark.Now to me, it's a classic example of a stuck T-stat, or worse a blown HG...

    WTF is Mitsubishi thinking

    Just found out about this last night when snooping on Facebook of the Eclipse Cross CUV.Really .... Great to bring back a trademark name from Mitsu, but to shame it also by attaching it to a CUV that doesn't deserve it. But, the Cross replaces the Lancer, including the EVO.Still keeping...

    Captive import by Chrysler when they were in partners with Mitsu. Rebadged Mitsu P.U. given a Dodge D-50 badge.Oh, that's the SOHC version of the 4G63 motor called the 63B

    Suspension Questions (parts list/opinions)

    A tire store in my area that did the suspension work told me of the weak springs. Just stock replacement would be fine, but if I have to go something different...just something to work with the new struts. Thx

    Suspension Questions (parts list/opinions)

    My 1990 Ply Laser Turbo needs new springs. Had struts replaced in all four corners and the installer told me that the springs are weak. Figured, that a 27 yr old chassis, anything can happen.Thus, any help with this for my DSM would be super helpful on this topic.Thx and good luck all. DSM

    What type spark plugs

    With that much boost I'd stay with the colder 7 plug. Stock boost can get away with the 6 plugs.

    1G Timing trouble

    Granted, the 420A has the crank pulley on the left (passenger) side, but the 4G63 runs the crank pulley on the right (driver's side) making No. 1 to the right with No.4 next to the transmission. Thus, we go 4321 - right to left - when we work on a 4G63.Would we mislead you with this issue...

    1G Improved shifts?

    After replacing both my master and slave, I still had to fine tune the adjustment to eliminate clutch drag where it's not stopping the input shaft. You get it right, but things can get out of alignment were just a half turn on the rod clears it up in a quick.

    1G Timing trouble

    1-3-4-2 is the correct firing order for the 4G63. 3-2-1-4 is the wire position coming from the coil. No.1 next to the cam sprockets and work left to the transmission.

    1G Calling all 1g Eagle Talon Tsi AWD Owners with legible DSM stickers in the engine bay!!!

    The sticker on the driver's door panel has some useful info also.The "MDH" showing the Month, Day and Hour the chassis was completed, as with My Laser is a June of 1989 build with the MDH of 060912.Interesting is that Chrysler and Dodge, to this day, still shows the MDH on the info sticker...

    Spark Plug Question.

    He didn't say what he had for the motor.If it's a 420A, I bet the plug size are 5/8th, for DODGE used that size of plug.

    1G Mysterious soft clutch

    Lot of weight on a clutch assembly that isn't built for such.Grab the clutch pedal and lift and pull down to check for any play.Bet with that 2600, the assembly is a goner.

    Walking Timing Belt on all new motor? Pictures inside!

    Wonder if the idler pulley isn't square to the block then causing the mis-alignment.

    Bet the TCU is shot if you have to unplug it to enter limp mode to move the thing.How is the fluid and did someone shoved in Dextron which is a big "no-no" to use for DSM trannies?No magic cure will be found here - just a lot of tips to listen to.Good Luck - DSM

    Lifters still ticking?

    Good pressure, but wonder if there's something with the rocker rail where oil pressure isn't feeding the rockers too well to prevent the ticking... Unless he put in 3G lifters were the ports are too big to hold that 20-30 lbs of pressure.

    Because there is no Rally X option 1GA

    Good looking Laser! What year of build is yours? Mine is June of 1989. And nice wheels - must have came off of a Chrysler Minivan. I plan on getting mine looking as good as yours. Thx and good luck!

    Walking Timing Belt on all new motor? Pictures inside!

    Only thing that really got changed was the adjustable cam sprockets.Wonder if those sprockets didn't get aligned correctly with the crank sprocket pulling the belt out of alignment around the oil pump sprocket.

    oil pressure not going over 25-30 psi

    Also, oil is thick when cold and thins up when hot.Thus, pressure will always be higher when thick than thin.Dang, I wouldn't make a biddy fit with those pressure readings, for as long as you have pressure, that is all what matters.With motor in idle, remove the oil cap. If you see oil...

    4g63 vr4, replace cas, cranks but wont start

    On the INT cam end, you see a symbol that looks like a house.On the CAS end, the one blade has a groove in the blade and that groove meets up with the dimple on the casing. The house symbol has to be looking normal and not upside down.These all align up and the CAS will be in time.Bet...

    where is this oil leak from you think? (timing)

    40k on a 20 plus year old motor. The teflon on the seals are getting dry. While you got it apart, do the front main crank seal. You're smart on getting a new HD since the other one is toast and didn't put you dead on the street.Good luck - DSM

    1G AC switch not turning fans on

    to your original question: Fans operate with the key on ACC, not in the off position since there is no delay relay in the circuit.Also, the fan switch has to be on, even on first click with your AC button pressed in-either orange or green, to get both fans to come on.I do this trick if I'm...

    1G AC switch not turning fans on

    Also, there are relays under the black box by the passenger strut that controls these fans. When you flip the fan switch, it closes a relay to activate both fans since both comes on when AC button is pressed in. One could be hanging up. You can swap these relays around to find the bad one.

    1G Build date April 1989

    Need to do the same with my June 1989 Laser build - have puny front brakes. Like to get larger rotors for more front end stopping power.Not fun when you have to crunch down on the brake pedal and you barely lock up for the sudden needed stop.

    1G Lack of power/Running horrible

    It's a bit of a trick to get it right the first time, but all marks have to be perfectly aligned, or the thing has operating issues.Bet the shop didn't get the autoadjuster set right (maybe used to the old spring loaded adjuster for SOHC setups ) and that's a trick in itself to get just right...

    Bummer. No choices for us Plymouth Laser RS Turbo owners.I have that March 1988 R&T magazine introducing the DSM to the world.Plymouth Laser originally was designated as the "X2S" before final revised design, then forward with the production, which commenced in August of 1988 and made as the...
