@  davidkrocks : (31 January 2015 - 10:42 AM) okay, totally, I will see if my mechanic can measure it out. I figure that it will be easiest to eliminate the ac altogether than try throwing more money into a used ac compressor install
@  KennyL : (31 January 2015 - 08:28 AM) I just measured mine on the 00 2.4, and there's a belt size for it on the forums, but I don't know if anyone's ever documented the 2nd gen size. Probably best to take a string and measure, but make sure you leave enough room to both get the belt on and have some tension adjustment.
@  davidkrocks : (30 January 2015 - 02:08 PM) hey, where can I find a the ac compressor belt bypass for a 05 2.4l 4dr stratus?
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 12:03 PM) Best of all, you can do this inside of $200. Making it speed sensitive requires the building of some sort of microcontroller that interfaces with your VSS or speedometer signal and mimics what the pot is doing, but a static adjustment should do well for most people. You could even have it on an easily accessible toggle and manually trigger it or have it hooked to a gear based switch with the 5 speed. Power steer in 1 and reverse but once you get rolling it's turned off. The DIY electrical engineering possibilities to trigger it are endless.
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 11:58 AM) Guys are doing this in old Mustangs and the like, so it should make a power steer pump deleted Stratus turn like butter. Especially my superlight build, heh.
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 11:57 AM) 1: obtain power steer assist motor assembly from 02-07 Vue/05-07 Equinox/Pontiac Torrent/03-06 Ion (metal controller case only). 2: fabricate the assembly into your steering column. 3: wire up using the controller box and adjustment potentometer. 4: Set desired power steering assist or even turn off if you want.
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 11:53 AM) I found a fairly "beater status" way of deleting your power steering, but retaining power steering. DIY electronic power steer assist! http://forums.vintag...d-ever-eps.html http://www.ebay.com/...S-/171027023129

Trying to get emission testing and the tech is getting "not ready" codes. I had the battery out replacing some wiring and was thinking this is what knocked me out. I suppose I need to drive the car a while, but how long is long enough to get the computer "ready" for emission testing?? I have no owners manual and my repair manual hasn't yielded the info.

Thanks!

"Not ready" could indicate an ECU failure as well, in which case no amount of time would fix it.

thats incorrect. not ready means you need to complete specific drive cycles for all of the emission controls to complete their self test. once that is done it will be ready. if you have $130 go to sears or auto zone and buy the innova 1003 code scanner. it will tell you wich sensors have completed the self test and wich ones have not. for the ones that have not, you can look in the owners manual and it will tell you how you need to drive to get it to do its test. normally 1-2 days of driving in your normal habits will put everything in the ready status.

the only problem is that every time you dissconnect the battery or use a scanner to erase the codes it gonna put it in the "OBD not ready" status until all the emmission control systems have finished self testing

Technically I was correct - if the ECU is bad, time would never correct it. A new ECU would. :lol:

But thanks for the much better answer and explanation. :whistle:

I definitely like the sound of this answer over Stratuscaster!! :whistle:
Ok, I'll run it through the motions and take it back. I get unlimited retests for my $25 fee, so I'll just use their machine until I pass.

By the way, I'm a cloud newb. I picked this 96 up a few weeks ago for a great deal from a family friend. So far, total investment is under $300 and hoping to run this baby for many miles.

Thanks for the help guys!
