  2. New Journey, Not till 2018

    Wow, quick response, guy. Didn´t hear about that delay, I did notice web report was published a couple months ago, but I didn't think there was a more recent announce about this. So, have got to wait a little more for seeing SRT's on streets.
  3. New Journey, Not till 2018

    Found news about Dodge Journey model 2018, on the market at late 2017. http://mycars2016.com/2017-dodge-journey-release-date-and-price/ A nice pic:
  4. That makes a lot of sense, and it also sounds dangerous With the car parked but parking brake off, do you think I could move the caliper with my hands?
  5. Thanks for your help. I'll try to check those elements next weekend.
  6. Yes, it works pretty ok. I'm not sure if parking brake is the same for automatic and manual gearboxes. Mine is manual, and parking brake is set on pulling up a lever between driver and passenger seats. It's not an electrical parking brake.
  7. Yes, that's what I meant, sorry for my english. I also thought it was something about suspensión, but, if so, why doesn't it sound when I press brake? It's enough to press softly to make noise dissapear.
  8. Hi all. I have a '09 Journey SXT with 86000 kms. I can hear a clunk noise (metal) when drive onto a bumper, but if I drive downhill, pressing brakes, it doesn't sound. Rear brake pads aren't new, but I dont't think they need to be replaced yet. Brakes work ok, I mean, I feel car stops without issue when I press pedal. Anybody with similar trouble? Any nut or something like that to adjust?
  9. The tank is always full

    Hello Raulb, I'm Spanish too, I'm going to write this post both in English and Spanish, to respect to other users and to make it easier to you. When key is switched to "ON" position, without starting the engine, all needles should go up & down, as a test for they're working ok, is the fuel needle going that way? If not, as stated before, it may be broken. You also can reset fuel mileage display, as now you have a high value (I use to see between 7.5 and 8.5 in mine), you should do this reset (hoding down the button for a couple of seconds) before driving a long (or middle) distance on highway at moderate speed, where mileage should be lower than 11.5 l / 100 km. Also stated by Animal Mother, it could happen that fuel sensor unit is not working, and it's always placed at its highest level. Good luck. [Translate - Traducción] Cuando giras la llave en el contacto, sin poner en marcha el motor, todas las agujas hacen su recorrido completo y vuelven a su posición inicial, ¿qué hace la del combustible? Si no se mueve en ningún momento, como ya te han indicado, puede que la propia aguja esté rota. También puedes probar a resetear el consumo medio que te da el EVIC, como ahora tienes un valor alto (yo suelo tener entre 7.5 y 8.5), lo ideal sería que lo hicieras (manteniendo pulsado un par de segundos el mismo botón que te cambia de termómetro a lector de consumo) justo antes de algún trayecto largo por carretera a velocidad moderada, en el que el consumo sería menor a esos 11.5 que tienes ahora. La otra posibilidad, como también han dicho, es que esté mal el propio sensor del depósito de combustible, y que se haya quedado arriba del todo. Que haya suerte y no sea nada.
  10. Anyone of you are considering mounting a shark fin antenna? I suppose it won't work for satellite radio, but for AM/FM shouldn't be any problem. They're pretty cheap at Ebay or similar webs (yeah, China manufactured), and that's why I'm not sure how well they work. I don't want to mount an antenna which, when I'm driving at highway, I can't listen to my favourites radio stations, and it's fixed to the car roof with a sticker at the bottom, so, if you remove it, what will happen with the paint?
  11. If we suppose 14.000 kms per year, mileage of 11,5 l/100 km for petrol and 8,3 l/100 km for diesel, and prices per l (in US $) of 1,45 and 1,41 (petrol and diesel), we can do this easy calculation: 14000 * 11,5 / 100 * 1,45 $ = 2334,5 $ per year (petrol) 14000 * 8,3 / 100 * 1,41 $ = 1638,42 $ per year (diesel) So, difference is about 700 $ per year, certainly, that's a lot of money. I think services in petrol engines are cheaper than diesel ones, with diesel you'd only need 1 oil and filter change per year, I don't know how often oil have to be changed in petrol engines, but that's not use to be an expensive service. I have no idea about insurance costs neither. The most relevant amount to be considered, IMO, is the swap cost itself, I mean, how much will you get for your trade in and how much have you got to pay for the new car? PS. Of course, if you don't feel the diesel unit you have tested works ok, don't even think about buying it, it can be a nightmare.

    Yes, I think it's boost (turbo) hose. It's not an expensive part (less than 100 € here). rossjenelle, can you see a groove in the hose? Mine had to be replaced for that reason. Unfortunately, I didn't do it myself, and forgot to tell to the mechanic that new hose should be covered (2 layers, at least) with tape, doing so, new hose will last longer.

    Somewhere, deep in this forum, there is a post with a link to a PDF File which I think it's what you're looking for. This is the URL http://www.gmb.be/CJD_parts/CD5/Catalogs/06-09/09jc.PDF Hope it's useful for you.
  14. I live in Spain and own a diesel DJ. Mine isn't tuned, so it's 140 bhp and 350 Nm (torque). As far as I know, Fiat has 2 engines, 2 litres both, but one is 140 bhp, and the other one is 170 bhp, ¿are you talking about tuning the 170 bhp to get more power? About fuel economy, now you're going to test a diesel unit, and you'll realize that it's really difficult to get 7 litres / 100 km., you'd better figure about 8.5 instead. That's real life. Difference will be 3 litres / 100 km, depending of your style of driving, of course. If you intend to drive 15.000 km per year (or less), and to keep your car 10 years (or more), I think swapping isn't worth, enjoy your V6, but, finally, it's got to be your choice.
  15. Wow, it sounds like a Turing test, in which you have to guess if you're talking to a computer or to a human being. Nowadays, natural language processing is very accurate, and computer calls may obtain a lot of information about all of us. Big brother is watching... longer than 30 years since 1984 :D :D :D
