Good lord don't do it.

I have one and has this nagging scraping noise. No one can diagnose it and a quick search online shows lots of people have it. Common conclusion is something in the transmission, yet Dodge won't acknowledge the problem.

I have had nothing but problems since getting mine.

I too was having the same conundrum. I finally settled on an 08 Dodge Caliber, 2.0L, Cvt Trans. Im currently getting about 30mpg average. I also don't drive but maybe 15,000 a year, so MPG is not a big deal for me. I settled on the Caliber because of its unique looks, and space. Fold down rear seats, chill zone, and not to mention Lifetime PowerTrain Warranty.

Hope this helps,

Are there better coil packs for the mazda rx8 that are upgraded or high performance which would be better for my car.?

The revised Mazda coils are better and appearantly last longer. Part number N3H1-18-100B-9U. These are OEM on the later RX8's but will fit all models.

Cheapest for a set that of 4 that i can find is - RX8 ignition coils

Hope this helps?

What battery range can i use for my mazda mx3 auto 1995

There are three things you need to consider before purchasing a battery for your car...
1. Physical size -> it has to fit in the holder
2. Assembly -> the posts need to be on the correct side (RC or LC)
3. Discharge capacity (this is given in CCA or cold cranking Amps), and is the maximun discharge rate the battery can hold for 90 secs.
As a general rule, the largewst battery that will fit is the one you want to buy. But of course if the budget is tight, then a smaller one would have to do. Don;t go smaller than 55 Ampere hour or 400 to 500 CCA, though.

Dodge Ram V6 2008

After all is said and done, you may pick up 10% increase in power, and it will sound better. If that's worth it to you, go for it. If you did all this AND added a computer chip, you may increase mid range up to 20 %. But you're going to spend some bucks. It's really a judgement call. I've done this exact same thing before, and it looks and sounds better, but you really need a V-8 to make the difference. If you still want to do it, write back and I will give you the best brands for each.

Change Dodge Ram tail lights from 2005 to new 2008. The wiring harness to change from the 05 to the updated 08 are different. Is there a adapting wire harness from dodge for this?

I just got a pair of 2008 tail light lens for my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500. If you look under the rear there is a connector that runs up to the tail light. This is a small harness. I believe that all you need to do is purchase the 2008 tail light harness. It looks like it will snap into the bottom of the stock harness and will fit the 2008 lenses.

didnt you get a warrenty thrown in on a £37000 car,did this occur within 90 days of your purchase,if so go to trading standards you have a 90 day warrenty by law,sounds like they took there time finding the problem so they could not be liable for the repair bill,also visit the landyzone website i use it and its a great source of help and advise,get the landrover customer care no of another rr dealer and chat to lr people themselves and go to the vosa website and check on the recalls for range rovers.

good luck
