I have a 1992 Dodge Stealth R/T/ TT. When I accelerate to the point where my stock turbo boost gauge reads about 7 psi, there is a weird mechanical fluttering sound, almost like a pressure leak or something. I lose power every time it happens, quite noticeably. It's been suggested it might be my blow-off valve. Before I invest in a new blow-off valve, I would like to here any input I might need to know or any ideas about whats going on...It would be greatly appreciated!!


Sounds like the blow off valve to me, not activating. tip: dont exclude dealer or high performance replacement parts sometimes they are cheaper and higher quality best of luck ... 1992 Dodge Stealth

My truck has no power on a pull or building speed. i have changed plugs, wires,distributer cap,rotor button,and ignition coil and set/check timing at 0 degrees. and i also made sure i checked timing right with disconnecting the advance wire... and all vacuum lines that i have tested seem to be fine. so could this be a bad EGR VALVE problem?

On a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 318 can the pcv valve being bad cause enough pressure buildup to cause the engine to idle rough and at some random times die? Thanks for your time.

My 1991 dodge stealth backfires intake and exhaust timing marks lineup all for punch marks are align any answers the o2 sensors are new as are plugs and wires. I need help I keep thinking a bent valve I want to do a compression test but I'm not sure how to with the intake in place, What about a vacuum check for compression if so how do I do this compression test? on this car.


A basic compression test can be done with the intake off. You remove all of the spark plugs and check each cylinder one at a time.A vac gauge would show you if a vac leak was happening, but not which cylinder. ... 1991 Dodge Stealth

We just removed our catalytic converter on a 1995 Dodge Dakota, cause it was bad... and I know...not suppose to do it, but didn't have a choice at this time. We'll replace it soon as we can, for now... just straight to muffler, but.... the problem is, within 5 miles, the truck ran "completely hot".., blowing steam out from under the throttle body area.., on to the valve cover, etc.., no hoses off, no holes in hoses. Can't find where the water came from?, or why?

I have a 1997 dodge intrepid that i have been told the egr valve is bad...now my car hesitates, stalls or dies on me at random times. could this be the egr or something else?and also sometimes when it dies i shake the battery cable and it starts, i have cleaned those already but still happens.


A bad EGR valve can definitely cause these symptoms, but would have nothing to do with the battery terminals. Unfortuneately, several other things can also cause these symptoms. ... 1997 Dodge Intrepid

I bought a 1984 chevy 350 engine from a salvage yard that ran but never ran right. Come to find out it had a bad exhaust valve. we took the head off blew it out and replaced the valve and put the head back on and hooked everything back up. We set the valves and the timing. It wont start at all. It fired a couple of times but never started. We checked timing again with the valve cover off and made sure it was on tdc with distributor pointing at #1 cylinder. We tightened and loosend the rocker arm

I have a 2000 Mustang that has been to the dealership 3 times since December. Service engine light came on, diagnosed with PO411 code and they replaced the diverter valve. Car started spark knocking really bad and idling rough, so they replaced the air valve solenoid. Now it's doing the same thing and they are now saying that it may be the egr valve. Are these the symptoms of an erg valve gone bad?

2007 Dodge Ram 1500, under 30k miles. Problem started around 15k miles. Driving 5-10 mph, brake applied for a turn, truck completely dies (usually in the middle of the intersection). Runs rough and seems to have trouble switching between gears at speeds under 35mph; not sure if that's related. I have taken it into the Dodge dealership five times; the first two times they said they couldn't find anything, the next two times they replaced computer modules (and, I believe, the EGR valve).

Dodge Neon At times my Neon stalls when I am driving it and it won't restart, at other times it will restart immediately. I was told it was a bad crankshaft sensor, which I had replaced. The problem continued until the timing belt finally broke. Now it won't run at all. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be if not the crankshaft sensor? Also, will a car start at all if the sensor is bad?

My 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 cummins has two code errors, P0236 & P0234. It has an intermitant power mode. Most of the time it has little power but it regains it from time to time for 1-50 second intervals, and seems completely random. I see that the P0236 code can be a MAP sensor, or too high of air pressure, and the P0234 code can be cause from lean fuel/air mixture all the way to a bad turbo charger and a bad IAT sensor. Please help me, One mechanic said it may be the lift fuel pump also.

1984 928 began running very rough & lost all power. Shop indicates 0 compression on 4 cylinders and that likely cause is slipped timing belt and damage to valves on one side. I thought 1984 engine had ''non-interference valve design'' and that valve damage would not result from slipped timing belt. I don't want to spend $4,000 on a repair I don't need. Does the diagnosis make sense?


Depending upon the rpm that the engine was turning at, I have seen "non interference" engines bend valves on a timing belt or chain failure. if you have 0 compression on that bank, it will need to be torn down to find out why. BUT I would do a ... 1984 Porsche 928

Idles bad about 2 years ago ti replaced the heads on my 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.9l and i took it to moss brothers dodge.when i got it back the air fillter case was off,it took me a while to figer what it was,i put it back on...for about a year in a half now the truck idles really bad,at first it was only when the truck was cold then it started to get worse,it dose it all the time,a couple times at a red light it was vibrating bad and the rpm gage was under the half line befor 1000 rpm and sounded


Not knowing anything about your vehicle, I can only advise the symtoms. Rough idle can be 1 of 2 things. More then likley it's the Air/Fuel temp sensor and this should be on the Air filter case. Since you said the case was off the wires cold have bee ... 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD

Overhaul of the top in of 2003 jeep 4.7. It had jumped time, broke a valve spring and bent a valve. After the overhaul oil pressure at idle drops to 0 after the engine warms up. No engine noise what so ever. pressure jumps up while driving, but at idle drops back to 0. Afraid to drive, what should I do?


First thing you need to do is put a mechanical gauge in place of oil sender and read actual oil pressure. If mechanical gauge shows same condition, take a look at the connecting rod bearing serving the cylinder where the valve bent. If the piston hit ... 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1998 4cyl.camry had a stuck valae due to bad gas{varnish}. removed valve cover, got valve unstuck. had to remove exhaust cam, but not the intake cam. need to reinstall and time exhaust cam. can not determine timing mark on exhaust cam. there are 3 marks 1dot, 2dots and 1dot


Simple to figure that out . the key ways are always up on camshafts. it allows for them not to fall out when assembling the engine . so use the balancer to determine tdc (top dead center on cyl one) and make sure both keys are straight up . (just loo ... 1998 Toyota Camry

High oil consumption, but no visibleleaks: on a 2002 Toyota Hilander V-6. I suspect valve seals (vehicle was sitting for several months), but wondered if there was some other possible source. Only one time (after vehicle sat for 3 months)..engine started hard and smoked badly for 2 minutes. This was not evident any other time. Have not noticed oil smoke in the exhaust when starting or running engine any other time. Oil consumption varies: mostly 1 qt per 300-400 miles; but one time on a 350 m

Timing Belt is BROKEN- This is a 1997 Neon DOHC. I am told that this is an interference motor, hence valves could be damaged for starters. NOTE: The belt broke when I just came off of a light and was only going about 10 mph. I am now trying to figure out of any of the valves are bent or damaged. I have seen a few UTUBE videos on this same engine wherein the one guy has the valve cover off and is wiggling the rocker arms to see if he has bad valves? He wiggles them and says, "yup, that one


You can`t tell if the valves are bent by wiggling the rocker as when the rocker is on the low part of the cam(base circle)there is suppose to be clearance and when on the lift(high portion) of the cam the valve is open and no clearance is wanted.the ... 1997 Plymouth Neon
