Question 1
what is cooler a chrysler 300<3 or a convertable mustange:|?...  i need votes!

1)   chrysler 300 is more classy
a convertable mustange is more of a teenage girl car

i personally like the chrysler - questioner

2)   Convertibles are something special. - Mr Intelligent Trousers

3)   what year? if you are looking to get rims in the future-300 for sure. Conv stangs are just plain cheap looking - SantaBarbarian

4)   A chrysler 300 looks pretty good with nice shiny rims. The Mustange has a very nice shape and goes great with my additude.The Mustange is faster,and is legendary (lol) "Too many people have an chrysler300 nowadays, "be original" ,there are many ways to pimp a mustange if your a Pro like me, The Convertible Mustange FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" - Sexiithug

5)   Take the 300C, both are cool, the 300c is more adult. - C-Tech

6)   looking for class 300, looking for status and one up, stang, - rick b


Question 2
Is Mopar synonomous w/ Chrysler?...  I hear them used interchangably

1)   Like GM is to AC Delco,Mopar is to Chrysler. - Bulldog

2)   Chrysler dodge Plymouth Mopar - kelly_f_1999

3)   Mopar is the parts division of Chrysler Corp. - badbill1941

4)   Yes. Mopar means vehicles built by the Chrysler corporation. The word comes from their old replacement parts catalog listings. - Mr Intelligent Trousers

5)   Well yes where have you been? - rick b


Question 3
how much to replace water pump and timing belt on a PT Cruiser?...  Water is leaking from the front of my car, on the right where the radiator is located. only thing is that its not leaking a lot, just a little.... but people keep telling me that my timing belt is going to go out and that i will be stranded!. i will like to know the cost of both the water pump and timing belts for my 2001 PT Cruiser please.

1)   my guess is $700.00 installed,however i 'd call my chrysler dealer for sure. - ramcharger

2)   um ur timing belt isn't leaking its the water outlet pipe.......i just replaced it in my wife 02 about a month or 2 was 50 bucks with new gasket from dealer timing belt and water pump were about 100 total form parts store.......i went ahead and replaced them because ur supposed to every 90k miles...even tho they had nothing to do with the leak....its a crappy design the painted steel pipe rusts underneath the paint and collapses at the o-ring styled gasket causing it to leak.... - Karle

3)   A suggestion. If your car is around 70,000 to 100,000 miles then you should change the timing belt. If it breaks, it will leave you stranded, and cost you more because the engine may be damaged. (girlfriend ignored the warning and it cost her $1000 in engine parts - I was the free labor!) Because the timing belt runs the water pump, most mechanics recommend changing the water pump at the same time, the water pump does not cost that much more. Parts and labor for this cost about $700 to $1000, sometimes it costs a bit more because the idler pulley is worn and must be replaced also. As for your leak, it would be best to have the cooling system pressure tested to find the spot of the leak. If its sometime other than the water pump, you'll be glad you found it early. Good luck. - C-Tech

4)   If your timing belt is old and wearing out, it should be replaced. This is the BEST time to replace the water pump, since the belt has to come off to change the pump. You will be saving a bit of money in the time required to make the repairs.
While it is being done, have the mechanic check the bottom of the radiator. - DER ALTE FIRZ


Question 4
how should gear markings on a 318 v8 mopar be alligned for tdc?...  replaced timing chain on a 74 plymouth wants to start but wont put gear markings facing each other for tdc dont know if thats the problem

1)   If you have the dots pointing towards each other, then you can set distributor up to fire cyl #6. NOT cyl #1. - done wrenching

2)   to make done wrenchings answer a little more simple... if the timing marks were pointing toward each other the engine would be '180' Degrees out as it is refered to by mechanics. This means that when the engine is supposed to fire on number one it will actually be firing on number six (cylinders) and if you have that problem all you have to do is turn the engine to tdc, if the distributor is pointing to cylinder number one then all you have to do is remove it and turn it so that the rotor is now facing the number six cylinder, then reinstall it and the engine should run fine. - pajamahammer

3)   If you removed the distributor during the timing chain replacement (no idea why you would have) then the above answers may be correct. If you didn't remove the distributor then leave it alone, it's not the problem.
Sounds like you installed the chain correctly.
If the old chain actually broke while the engine was running it may have bent some valves.
Do a compression test to verify good compression on all cylinders then go from there.
best of Luck! - Dave

4)   You did right. Try loosening the distributor and turning it a little one way and if nothing happens, the other. - Jackolantern


Question 5
Help with the cd changer in my 2000 Chrysler LHS!!?...  I accidentally left a light on, so my battery died. We jumped it, and everything was back to normal. Except for my cd changer. Before my battery died, it worked just fine. But now the 4 disc cd changer doesn't work. If you are not fimiliar with it, the system looks like this:
so the cd changer is a totally separate system than the radio and cassette tape. But now the 4 lights just flash and it won't let me play the cds I already had in there, and it wont let me eject them either. What could possibly be the problem? Also, if I just buy a new cd changer, the exact same as the old one, will it work? Please Help Me!!!

1)   ur link doesn't work.......but sounds like either the security locked it or it just need to b reset...

if it just need reset unplug the power to it wait a few minutes then plug it back up....if its the security then u need to follow the man directions and probably need a code to reset it......but since ur link doesn't work i can't help u with any info on this.....good luck - Karle

2)   I have an intrepid with same system, and it has never failed. BUT I would try disconnecting batt again for a bit. Maybe it will straighten itself out when you hook battery back up. - done wrenching

3)   Pop out the two fuses that deal with the stereo unit , remember one fuse is for the switchable ignition 12 volt feed the other for the constant ignition feed , the fuse you really only need to pull is the constant but I'd pull them both to be sure you got the right fuse.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way I'd not recommend disconnecting the battery bec that could mess p the whole comp system and cause other headaches etc. - helpful bob

4)   Karle is right your link dosent work and your cd is locked, took your time in replaceing the battery huh? Instead of wasting your money in getting a new one and its a factory one (cd player), take it to the dealer and have it unlocked or flashed updated, if its aftermarket and it was tapped into your factory system you probably fried the capasitor in the player and then yes you would have to replace it - rick b
