    Neon SRT4 / PU 5w40 / 4700 miles

    ANTHONY: Wear is very low in this sample from your SRT-4, which is great considering that your oil change interval was about 1,000 miles longer this time than your previous sample. Insolubles were high, so it looks like your oil filter was having a bit of trouble keeping solid particles out of...

    Bored and curious

    On another car forum there was a thread started about spun rod bearings. The motors in question are modified and built/tuned Turbocharged 2.4L's in the Neon SRT4. Most were in the 350-420hp/400+tq. After a bunch of people were trying to figure out what caused the problems, I decided to ask...

    70 Miles without air filter?

    Would you change your oil after driving 70 miles without an air filter? A member of a different forum said he had an air filter on order and couldnt find one locally, so he was driving around without a filter on. I suggested he change his oil after the new filter shows up. He later mentioned...
