@  KennyL : (01 April 2015 - 11:24 AM) Chrysler is about to liquidate all JA, LH and PL inventory. Anything left after June 30, 2015 is going to be scrapped. Prices are going to be cut deep, get the rare stuff while you can... http://forums.neons....hp?f=2&t=414841
@  sgtmyers88 : (01 April 2015 - 02:40 AM) PM'd you
@  StratusMank : (31 March 2015 - 12:41 PM) @sgtmyers88 : Still have that 2000 V6 ECM
@  KennyL : (27 March 2015 - 05:39 AM) I think I figured out how I want my lighting to be as a final revision, whenever I can actually get to doing cosmetic stuff (it works for now, as far as being a "safety" device). Those partial black reflector headlights (as the Stratus will do little driving at night anymore, if any, so I'm not worried about light output), lightly smoked "Breeze tails", and re-finish my clear 3rd brake lense and lightly smoke it as well. I just might still end up building some LED tails, but I'm not sure.
@  sgtmyers88 : (26 March 2015 - 11:41 PM) Also got a set of Stratus Tail Lights for $50 total stock.
@  sgtmyers88 : (26 March 2015 - 11:40 PM) I got 3 extra distributor caps and rotors for the 2.5 v6 if anyone is interested. $20 for the set. PM me.
@  Dylan214 : (26 March 2015 - 07:32 AM) Pursuader, did u say your pullies would work with a turbo setup? I bought one a year ago
@  Dylan214 : (26 March 2015 - 07:27 AM) turbosport, look at your log.
@  KennyL : (26 March 2015 - 04:32 AM) I did fire the poor old "purple beast" Stratus the day before yesterday. Not capable of pulling out of the mud, too little tire tread and weight I guess.
@  KennyL : (26 March 2015 - 04:21 AM) I'd have to drop my parts car's tank and verify the pump assembly was in good condition. Unfortunately, it's going to be muddy as crap up there now since we're getting more rain...heh.
@  turbosport : (25 March 2015 - 05:16 PM) Does anyone have a spare fuel pump assembly laying around? I'll post pictures of mine in my log.
@  pursuader : (25 March 2015 - 04:21 PM) thanks Kenny hey guys I still have 7 pullies !!! left
@  KennyL : (25 March 2015 - 07:25 AM) Yea, a 255 will be perfect for the turbo R/T.
@  theronz : (24 March 2015 - 09:20 PM) been running a 255 for years. note that it is considerably louder.

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!
