This is the place to ask questions about your engine components like cams, valves, pistons? just anything that is generally "engine" specific.

Post by shaneb » Sun Nov 04, 2007 1:43 pm

Ok I'm driving on the highway and all of a sudden i hear kinda like a pop and i kinda felt it too. (although I mite be associating hearing the engine pop when i felt it). Anywho the engine starting sounding like it had a blower in her you know the winey sound. I pull over and anti freeze is leaking all over the place. So I had it towed to the dodge garage, but any ideas as to what this problem could be????

Thank you

Peace

1900!?!!?? JEEZIS!!!! what else did they do? I just did one last week, that was around 1100 with head gasket set, tbelt set, water pump, tstat, rad hoses, oil change and tuneup.........1900 is unreal for just a headgasket.

hopefuly it won't be that much from my dealer, so far they've been pretty good as far as pricing goes.

Well it's the timing belt, and since it went while I was driving they don't know if there is internal damage, plus the water pump is leaking. it's going to cost $1,100.00 to fix which i don't have $1,100.00 to pay for this, here is the kicker they need to start the car to find out if there is internal damage with out opening the engine up but to start the car i need the timing belt. I'm screwed.

step one: get a haynes manual (or factory service manual preferably. i know someone that might be able to slip you an e-copy of one :wink:)

step two: go to autozone, advance auto, or the auto parts store of your choice. give them about $130 for a water pump, timing belt, and tensioner.

step three: take an afternoon and swap out the parts.

its really not that difficult. i say that if you have any mechanical skills you should be able to do it. i had my water pump blow on me once when i was about 40 miles from home. i got it towed home, bought the parts, and lucked out. if you buy the parts and don't happen to luck out like i did, you still have the new parts to put on a different engine (or you could just swap a head on). of course, if you're not interested in a different engine or head, you can just skip everything i said. (at least my spelling isn't horrendous, right?)

I think I'm justing going to sell the neon or part it out, at this point.
I don't have the tools or hoist, to even remotly fix it. Plus I can put that money towards my wedding next september.

Never ever let the dealer fix this, cuz they are WAAAYYY to expensive.

I have a coupon of a repair that the chrysler dealer did, when my car was owned bij it's preview owner. 1750 euro for a head gasket.

I payed around 800 euro at a local garage. this was incl timing belt, and head bolts (if it is called that way, anyhow, the bolts used to install the cylinder head) and some fluids.
