#356 of 490 Anyone driven the Avenger yet?..
Apr 03, 2007 (6:15 pm)
Understand that the Avenger is replacing the Stratus. Took a Charger on a test drive today (my impressions are in the Charger forum... sweet ride..), but also looked at and sat in a 2008 (?) Avenger in the dealer's lot... Thought it looked nice, modern, kinda like a mini-Charger.... Has anyone driven one yet and can post some impressions?

Probably because previously the Avenger was strictly a coupe. We'll fix the category on that group to include Sedan.
#359 of 490 Strange Car Behavour...
Apr 04, 2007 (1:15 pm)
I drive a '96 Dodge. This past year my car has been acting all strange. My air/heat vent switches quit working that it only has one setting that sends cold or hot air up to the windshield, the floor and the side vents. The rest of the settings don't work... that happened last year. I didn't have the time to get it in to take it fixed but as of last week... it's back to normal. I got all the settings and everything. It was strange. Another thing, My 'Check Engine' Light came on and stayed that way for two and half weeks until I decided to have it checked out without having to fix it until I know what it is. Turns out it's my EGR value (or is that ERG valve??) that needs to be replaced... that's what caused my light to come one until the NEXT day it went off on it's own. Got me puzzled...
Anyone has that strange case when a car has a mind of it's own or something like that??
#360 of 490 Looking for Seats!
Apr 29, 2007 (6:07 am)
Hi All, I drive a 97 Dodge Stratus and recently just spent 900 bucks to place a new motor under the hood. 150,000 miles on the car, and with a new motor I am aiming to try to give the car a fresh start at life..
however the previous owner of the car broke the driver's seat on the right side. When I go to sit in the vehicle I often lean slightly to the right, making a drive uncomfortable. I am looking to change this..
Should I go to a dealer and get stratus seat placed in, or should i consider aftermarket seats - if so, what are the best and best priced aftermarket seats available?

I have a 1998 ES. Does ANYONE know how to access the air conditioning condensate drain? Mine has plugged, but I cannot find it to open it back up.
I really like the car - as long as I keep the rpm's below 3,000, the fuel mileage is almost always 32.0 - 32.1 mpg. The air conditioner is working great, but the condenstate is currently draining into the passenger-side floor board.

I also have had my EGR valve replaced. I spent about $800. and still the engine check light was still on. There is more than one EGR valve. Take it to an Imisions inspector and have them put a specific gas and it will take less than an hour for them to scan it and find which EGR is not working. In my case a $50 EGR valve was not working right and that cost me about $80 for labor.

#364 of 490 '01 R/T engine swap?
Jun 17, 2007 (2:32 am)
Ive got an '01 R/T... Awesome car but due to an unfortunate circumstance my oil pan was blown on the freeway and ultimately killed the engine... I want to keep this car so maybe you guys have some suggestions as to what kind of engine I might be able to fit in this thing... I figure if im gonna go I might as well go as big as possible... and possibly switch over to a 5 speed I would love that.. anyone with any ideas? Thanks!
