@  Dylan214 : (16 October 2014 - 09:23 AM) Theronz, Look in general discussion for answer
@  Dylan214 : (16 October 2014 - 06:01 AM) thats what i thought. okay, let me pull the data again i will let u no
@  KennyL : (16 October 2014 - 04:15 AM) "final drive" would be the differential ratio.
@  KennyL : (16 October 2014 - 04:14 AM) I think the technical name is "transfer gears", since they aren't actually part of the drive system.
@  theronz : (16 October 2014 - 03:23 AM) how much are road rage gears worth these days anyways?
@  theronz : (15 October 2014 - 04:48 PM) ehhh final drive gears? transfer gears? input/output? i dont remember the specific name.
@  Dylan214 : (15 October 2014 - 03:01 PM) let me no what gears your actually talking about they have 4 different names.
@  Dylan214 : (15 October 2014 - 02:40 PM) let me look on all data hold on
@  theronz : (15 October 2014 - 01:02 PM) can anyone PLEASE pull off a trans side cover and find out what size sockets hold the gears on?
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 10:25 AM) The main thing I wanted was the 2.4 stuff and the wideband. I could take his 2.4 apart, combine good parts and some other parts along with new gaskets and such and build a hell of a 2.4 N/A to hold me over until I can get supercharger stuff.
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 10:22 AM) It is a JA, but his car is an auto. Has the rare "road rage" straight cut gears to give a much better gear ratio for accelleration.
@  Dylan214 : (15 October 2014 - 10:00 AM) Yeah, its a JA right? I could use the 5speed stuff.
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 08:59 AM) I could drive there in a few hours...heh. No cash.
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 08:59 AM) He lives in northern Indiana, pretty far from you.
@  Dylan214 : (15 October 2014 - 08:54 AM) SO tempting but how far away are u ?
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 06:10 AM) I would suggest at least finding the time to pull the trans side gears. I know Joe would grab those and if you don't have a stock set handy I could find time to pull the side gears from my spare trans and send them your way perhaps. The car will be much more "saleable" when it's getting better fuel econ, heh.
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 06:07 AM) OH, I see. I forgot about the getting it running bit. No way I can come up with that, though. If I had any extra cash for car parts at the moment, I would personally come up there and nab that 2.4, pull the wideband myself and nab some other goodies...heh.
@  theronz : (14 October 2014 - 07:43 PM) its running perfectly with the original 2.0sohc installed bro. hell it was my ONLY mode of transpo from 7/13 to 6/14, I only parked it cuz i got my new cars. you can jump in and drive it across the country. hows $2500 jammed FULL of spare extra parts and a 2.4 in the trunk sound?
@  KennyL : (14 October 2014 - 06:26 AM) You'd probably be lucky to get $500 out of it not running as it sits. Perhaps a few hundred in scrap value, but that would be a real shame. Doubt anyone here could buy it. I know I can't with all the moving and stuff, car is far back burner...heh. I was just curious.
@  theronz : (13 October 2014 - 05:25 PM) not even sure yet. i dont even have time to look at it, i'm so busy.

The drivers floor board gets wet when it's raining... It's not the sunroof and it's not the drivers window. How much stuff under the dash could leak? Anyone else had this problem? I'm sick of the musty smell in my car, any advise would be greatly appreciated.. ;)

check door when closed to see if you can move it inwards (more closed). If you tighten it up a bit by moving the striker on the door post you can tighten up the weatherstripping a bit if you see no rips in the weatherstripping as suggested in earlier posts.

Hey Fujimo, I am having the same problem with my 2001 Stratus ES. Have you figured it out what was wrong with your car? Please let me know. Where is the water coming from?

Could be from the A/C. The drain may be clogged. Usually that leak appears on the passenger side, but it could appear elsewhere.

(Remember, your A/C runs when you set the HVAC to defrost, too.)

Where is the A/C drain located at? Thanks.

Apollo- keep in mind he has a coupe and you have a sedan, and they're 2 entirely different cars. while you may have the same problem, you might also not

It is so aggravating to have this kind of problem. I can not afford to take my car to the dealership and live it there until they figure it out what is wrong with it. How am i going to get to work? I am just venting out. It is supposed to rain again tonight, all night.

It may require you being in the car during a rain storm to see just where the water is coming in from.

I am not sure if I have my problem fixed or not. (wet floor board) I took the fender well cover out on the driver side because that's where I am having problem with. I found a lot of dirt build up in there and I think it is clogging up the drain holes, if there is any in that location. I think, I am not sure. It rained the night I did that work and it seems like the wetness inside my car did not get worst, but once again I am not really sure yet.

The idiot that had the car before me pulled the boot for the doors harness loose and ran wires through it, water was running down the wires into the floorboard. Just glad nothing shorted out.

I am glad you got it figured it out. I think I got my car issue fixed too. I am just waiting for that hard rain to come to see if I got it fix or not. Just like I said before, I had to take my fender well out and see what kind of mess I had in there. What I found was compacted dirt, it was so compacted that water could not drain out of it. Thanks for the reply.
