    As long as you are patient and don't let the engine overheat, you can get away with not using the big funnel mounted high even if the vent plug is stuck. But, if you overheat your hemi, it might get...

    Great choice I think. I've heard some good things about the 3.6L V6. Recently, I watched a mechanic video about a Sprinter van with that engine with over 300k miles on it. I suspect with the 8...

    If you don't want drone, I suggest you leave the stock resonators on and go for loud mufflers. I replaced my suitcase with quiet magnaflows. then I had the resos removed. Bad idea. Sounded great...

    Well, if you didn't like the car that was an effective solution. But it probably was a minor issue that could have been repaired. There aren't any perfect cars out there, new or used. Good luck...

    Check out this video for possibly getting rid of the ESP/BAS light. After I replaced my clock spring I couldn't get rid of the BAS light until i adjusted my steering column in accordance with this...

    That's why I stated the repair should be ABOUT the same procedure as the one in the video. If the cylinder isn't scored, it should be way cheaper. No heads to rebuild, maybe. In fact only one head...

    If the cylinder is not scored requiring boring, it can be repaired in place. Here is a video of a dropped seat repair on a 5.7. Should be about the same for your car. There are more videos out...

    To do the compression test, re-install one of the spark plugs. Screw the gauge into the other spark plug connection. Floor the gas pedal to keep the engine from starting or better yet pull the fuel...

    A compression test of that cylinder might tell you something too. Most likely something broke off the piston, valve, or valve seat and got crushed between the piston and head bending the spark plugs...

    Several have suggested you get a boroscope and look into the cylinder. You most likely have or had a loose part in that cylinder doing damage. The more you drive it, the more damage is likely to...
