Oil Pressure Switch Leaking Again!

My oil pressure switch is leaking again! I seem to only get a year or so before it craps out. Does anybody know if there is a better one that will hold up? I've bought them from Pep Boys, Autozone, and the dealer, but they all give out sooner than I would like. Any ideas???

CV Axel Spindle Nut Stuck!!

I'm trying to replace my right CV Axel. I can't get the spindle nut off. I 've tried WD-40, heating with a touch, a half inch breaker bar with a pipe used as an extention (broke the breaker bar!!). I think I heard the nut laughing at me!! Any ideas?

Timing Belt Cover

I tried that, took apart 3 different cars, all were damaged in some way. So I'm trying to just buy them.

Timing Belt Cover

Anyone know where I can get a timing belt cover at a decent price? I have a 1997 neon SOHC. I would settle for the back cover if that is all I can get. The dealer wants over 100 dollars!! Please help!!

Priming Melling oil pump.

I just bought a new Melling oil pump (model M190, stock pressure and flow), and I can't find any good info on how to properly prime it so I don't damage anything. Has any one replaced their pump and how did you prime it?

Rebuild versus Buying Engine

I sure it's probably been covered before, but my engine is dead. I'm trying to figure out what is the best thing to do. If I rebuild it then I know what work was done and how it was done. On the other hand, is it worth the time, money, and effort? Is it more or less expensive? Also, if I need a repl...

According to Neons.org site the 420A engine is what is used in 95-99 neon and 95-99 Eclipse. I'm trying find out if it true so I can have a better chance of finding one. I read the only difference is the cylinder head. I already rebuilt the head on my engine, so all I need is the short block.

Mitsu Engine in Neon

I'm trying to find a short block for my 97 neon, I heard the 420a was used in the Eclipse. Anyone knows if it's true. It would make it easier to find one.

What springs to use with KYB GR2?

I just ordered a full set of KYB GR2 for my 97 Neon, I was wondering what would be a good set of springs for them. I don't want to lower the car much (if at all, my roads suck!) so any ideas would be appreciated. I want a stiffer ride than stock, but I don't want it to be too harsh either.
