    2G Rag In Timing Belt.

    Heck, I was just down near you when I was in OC in October, and was there in July, I go several times a year and have been in Salisbury, if worse comes to worse I could possibly stop over when I am there next time which should be in the summer, hopefully you have it sussed out by then though.

    2G Blackbox ECU (98/99) are not different California vs Federal? True or false?

    The GST I think is higher in the speed limit, due to the AWD system in the GSX, this was at least true in some generation of the DSM, don't remember which one though.The black box ECU in the Spyder is not plug and play with the non Spyder cars, the fuel pump relay works the opposite way of the...

    2G Blackbox ECU (98/99) are not different California vs Federal? True or false?

    The MDP sensor would be used on the 2g to check for EGR operation.:dsm:You would want a 98-99 ECU from a GST or GSX, either ECU would work, the physical ECU would be the same, it's the programming in the ECU for those years that was different for Federal vs California or GST vs GSX or auto vs...

    2G LiquiMoly Molygen Oil

    It blows it away in terms of zinc content, which on a race engine with an expensive turbo is a good thing.

    Engine coolant discussion

    Using factory coolant is HUGE in the VW/Audi world, and it has been for a long time, you must use only G10 or G13 or G whatever coolant or you will blow your car to kingdom come according to the usual suspects, we all know better I should hope, engines are still made of aluminum and iron last...

    1G Standalone ECU, Tach signal with COP kit.

    I saw your post on the Link forums, I must have been told that because they thought that I had the Evo 1,2,3 ecu, but I do remember them telling me that since that was also my plan, as far as keeping the transistor I would try connecting a trigger wire from the number one and the number two...

    Oil pump failure

    That looks like an oem front cover but can you 100% confirm that it is oem? the knockoffs from China are getting better and better. An over tight timing belt will generally whine at idle, did you notice any whining when it was at idle? Those bearings look like they had shrapnel ran across...

    1G Standalone ECU, Tach signal with COP kit.

    If those coils are like the Toyota coils, they will have a tach output on them, that may not be able to drive the stock tach though, because our ignition transistor takes both channels and combines them and feeds them to the tach from my understanding, why are you bent on removing the factory...

    2G Front roll Torque Solutions Mount not lining up

    Those are pretty bad to line up, I damaged my shoulder trying to lay under mine and tighten the bolts that go through the crossbar, its just an issue with the bolt holes on those brand of mounts apparently, I was also wondering if anyone else had issues with them and figured it was just me, they...

    2G Tapping sound coming from engine and a rattle when I rev the engine

    I have had these cars make that sound when the bolts that hold the idler or tensioner pulley for the timing belt come loose, and also have seen it when the timing belt tensioner is not set right or has failed, you should check those pretty quickly to rule them out, if its just the lifters its...

    420A Billet Oil Pump Gears

    The 4g63 doesn't break, but they just wear out and are not available anymore, especially the straight cut pump gears.

    Spyder Soft top repair help

    There was a repair kit for this, it was an issue on the Spyders when they started to age, that elastic strap thats hanging loose is not supposed to be loose, its job is to pull on the bar in front of it to allow the top to fold properly, someone attached a makeshift white piece of string to try...

    420A Billet Oil Pump Gears

    If you could make some for the 6 bolt 4g63, you might sell a bunch on here as a vendor and even the 420a version could be sold on this site if you set yourself up as a vendor.

    420A I cannot download the file from ECU with ECUFlash

    Mating VW Sirocco radiator to 1g water pipe lower hose issues

    You might just do what I am going to do and make one out of some mild steel or aluminum tubing that you can pie cut and weld up and then use a piece of connector hose on the ends to connect to your barbed fittings, or in my case weld it to the AN fittings, I currently have a flexible hose down...

    2G Low voltage in ECMLink but perfect at alt and batt???

    Yours sound more like an alternator issue, if its a cheapo parts store reman unit, no matter who its from consider it suspect and probably junk, they will act up intermittently and the parts store tests wont show it as bad even though it is.

    2G Starter motor problems

    You have to be much more specific, what exact problem are you having? is it manual or automatic?

    Clutch adjustment. Ive exhausted what i can.

    Possible bent fork or wrong length push rod? I have had good luck myself with Southbend, they are based on oem pressure plates that are modified with heavier springs, so the pressure plate should never be an issue with other stock parts, I would be concerned about the flywheel, but replacing...

    2G Do I need to replace the OEM Head Gasket?

    I'm not sure how he can determine that you need a new head gasket for a certain turbo if the gasket is still good, I would not replace it just for the heck of it, run it and if it ever gives out then thats when you replace it, you might look into replacing the head bolts with upgraded head studs...

    Where to find GST or GSX’s for sale?

    That looks like a very clean car. The price of 4g63 powered second generation Dsm's have gone through the roof the last couple of years, you might have a hard time finding one worth owning in your price range right now, you might be better off looking for a clean shell and putting one together...

    420A COP, Which Ignition Coils?

    The Chrysler coils are going to require some type of mounting plate to use them, which is why I recommended the Toyota coils, also the megasquirt will not be able to natively drive the 12v Chrysler coils, it will need a module to run them whereas the Toyota coils have the drivers built in to them.

    420A COP, Which Ignition Coils?

    Guys have had good luck with the Toyota stick coils from the Tacoma, say 2005 and up years, this is a go to coil for the 4g63, as for the 420a I cant say for certain if they would fit but I assume that the lengths would be similar, maybe find one to try out, possibly at your local parts store, I...

    2G 6 bolt swap shenanigans

    Six bolt timing components, Six bolt flywheel, your six bolt water pump will need to be modified or your drivers side motor mount where it goes on the block, either of them need ground down to clear each other, you will need to run a 1g cas since there will be no place to mount a crank sensor on...

    420A 420A Valve cover bolts?

    That takes a special bolt that has a m6 thread with a larger shank up top where it goes into the valve cover.

    Could be a regulator, or even a failing fuel pump.

    Spyder 97 Eclipse Spyder 4G64 SOHC replace water pump?

    There is no timing chain, there is an external belt, also the belt does not run the water pump on the 4g63 or 4g64.

    1G Bearing? In oil pan

    That could take out your oil pump, if it hasn't already, you should pull the front cover and check the pump out, I would not try starting it like that for any reason, it could jump time, you should pull the rod caps and main caps and check for damage, also the cam caps to check for the same on...

    420A What Part Is This?

    A handful of bolts holds it on, you can pull it off and try to find a new gasket for it from Chrysler and while your at it the same with the transmission pan.
  36. motomattx

    420A What Part Is This?

    Whats circled is the transmission solenoid pack, they are externally mounted on the Chrysler product, is it actually dripping on the ground? if its not then it could just be the sealant oozing out from around the pan.

    Do we have any GY6 engine members (gocart motor)?

    You could turn it backwards as long as you do it very slowly.

    Do we have any GY6 engine members (gocart motor)?

    I have had some of these apart also, they are cheap enough to replace if you need to, it might be locked up, they are not very high quality.

    Subaru is gone

    My Jetta recently got sandwiched by some girl texting and driving in a Jeep Wrangler, her car got very little damage but drove into my trunk and pushed me into a car in front of me while we were sitting at a red light, my car got totaled and I got a whopping $2500 out of a 2010 Jetta, my sister...

    Link G4 1G with LinkG4+xtreme
