@  KennyL : (16 April 2014 - 10:41 AM) Really need to sorth through the random junk inside from where the wife and I moved so I can get back to stripping down.
@  KennyL : (16 April 2014 - 10:40 AM) With all the funky rain and snow, my Stratus has sunken somewhat into mud. I might need assistance moving it from its current location, heh. Dad can tug me out, I'm sure. Need to get it fired and roll it a bit again, been a while.
@  KennyL : (15 April 2014 - 04:01 AM) Fresh oil and filter for the Grand Prix yesterday. Gotta keep the supercharged daily screamer running right, heh.
@  KennyL : (12 April 2014 - 01:50 PM) lol, wow
@  BeaterStatus : (11 April 2014 - 02:58 PM) Check out the photo dump in my progress log. There's some interesting stuff in there.... lol
@  BeaterStatus : (11 April 2014 - 01:45 PM) I know right? Just wait till you see what I found INSIDE THE MOTOR
@  KennyL : (08 April 2014 - 09:57 AM) Solid numbers.
@  BeaterStatus : (06 April 2014 - 06:40 PM) Compression test on the Breeze had good results! 220psi across the board :D
@  BeaterStatus : (05 April 2014 - 11:30 AM) Pics please!
@  KennyL : (04 April 2014 - 02:35 PM) I think so. Good to see progress.
@  Low-Speed : (04 April 2014 - 11:07 AM) Kenny, reckon I should add some pictures?
@  Koolguy007 : (31 March 2014 - 06:41 PM) Im thinking about posting my rebuild log. Lots of pictures, but its mainly just a rebuild.
@  Low-Speed : (31 March 2014 - 04:38 PM) Kenny is correct, I don't post a lot. I have my rods, pistons, windage tray and base motor. need to have some machine work, order mains and gaskets.
@  KennyL : (30 March 2014 - 01:59 AM) 2.4 DOHC
@  KennyL : (30 March 2014 - 01:59 AM) Solid high compression build with large cams can fairly well do 220 HP at the wheels.
@  Koolguy007 : (30 March 2014 - 01:53 AM) When I get my job back I will be doing a good fun street car. Hopefully a 200 hp NA 2.4L with the suspension goodies. 200 hp shouldn't be too hard right?
@  Mckinney_Tx : (29 March 2014 - 09:27 PM) just checking in. i still pop in folks :D
@  Dylan214 : (27 March 2014 - 01:36 PM) Same, once i get the extra cash flow. dam NYS taxes
@  Koolguy007 : (27 March 2014 - 10:21 AM) Still lurkin.
@  KennyL : (27 March 2014 - 03:43 AM) William/LowSpeed doesn't post much but he's building a beast that is going to draw some attention to the JA platform I'm sure. I know my car will if I can ever get it built.

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!
