  • Mark named me village idiot... so im going with it

so i got this plymought breeze a few months ago, and i been slowly gettin it back together, needed a windo, misc electrical, and i think it needs wheel bearings and a power steering pump still. hey i got it for dirt cheap si i cant complain. needs an o2 sensor as well as a few other engine sensors. but hey it gets like 22 mpg and my commute is a lot further than it has been in the last couple months. so i was pullin out on the road the other day, and i relt like i was going to get rear ended by a maple leaf. my foot was stuffed into it and just this... NNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH whine from this 2 litre motor. hell my mustang 2 had more pickup. its ball less compared to the dip. i was tempted to check the trunk to make sure it was empty for less weight. it was wet out so i stopped on one of those white lines at a stop light. ok shes gotta spin em here...barely.
this thing feels like im going to get rearended by my own exhaust. the timing marks are all good. so im figurin the computer is in open loop mode ore some crap. heres that cars add slogan"Plymought Breeze, when the straus just aint gay enough"
i swear i waved goodbye to my manhood the first time i filled the tank

ya the "cloud cars" are a PITA. a guy at work had one and the battery is infront of the left front tire,,,you gotta pull the tire to get at it. the tranny started goin to hell on it so he tried sellin it to me and my dad but neither of us wanted it. he replaced one of the censors on it and and it didnt help any. he ended up givin it to his son (?) cant remember) and he changed the other sensor and its working fine :roll:

I was going to buy a Chrysler LeBaron convertible today for the upcoming summer, $800 out the door. After doing research on those cars and finding out they are quite possibly one of the worst built cars I've ever researched or driven anybody considering buying one I'd steer clear.


Why would you buy a Plymouth breeze?lol While I ask that why would you buy any Chrysler from the 1990s?

The only thing I have to give thumbs up to on that LeBaron was the comfort of the seating and the amount of room for my legs in a small car.

Bobbo, let me put it to you this way.........You bought the equivelent of a 1976 valiant with a 1 barrel slant six an automatic and 2.24:1 rear gears.  Mileage is what you get and THAT"S ALL!!  That breeze of yours has the smallest engine available and an automatic, that is straight out of a NEON put into a car that weights I'll bet 600 to 1000 lbs more!  You can turbo them and I hear that an SRT4 neon drivetrain is very swappable for these then you get a 2.4l and turbo AND there's performance parts up the whazoo for that drivetrain.  Remember, what did you buy this car for again??????  Oh Yea, MILEAGE.  I felt the same way when I went from my Dip to a 94 spirit with a 2.5 and an auto, the auto lasted 6 months ....Maybe before I swapped in a 5 speed from a daytona.  It still wasn't fast, but I got better mileage for it and at least I felt like I was doing something when I chirped second.  Unfortunately that's all we can do in the quest for gas mileage is take a little shot in the pride and try to move ahead, the only way to get performance is to sacrifice power, you can't have both on a budget, it's the sad truth. :hmm:

I had a 1997 Neon once, but the tranny gave at 100K Miles. almost exactly, but i'd blame it on my sis who owned it prior and never maintained the thing. it got stuck in 1st gear or reverse only. sold it to someone interested (heaven knows why) who gave it to his daughter to drive to Save-a-lot where she worked. (speed limit is only 30, and car only reached 35 in 1st maybe now i know :D ) but other than that it ran perfect and the A/C Worked well for a long time. the SERVICE ENGINE SOON lamp was on, was said to be the O2 sensor and EGR Valve, though it never shot out black puffs or lost any MPG's at all. i just drove it with that annoyance on and never thought nothing of it. the only problem was eventually the AIR BAG lamp came on steady, and the car chimed all the time (Warning reminder tone. also does it when the CHARGE (battery) lamp comes on, oil pressure was low, or the temperature got hot)

Far as i'm concerned, after factoring in higher prices for parts, harder to work on DIY engines, and more things to go wrong, the money you make up in gas savings goes to repairs that happen more often. vs. just the money going into the gas tank of a M body. either way you save nothing in the long run.

My horizon is great so far.  It gets up and goes (even though the motor sounds crappy) and gets 24 MPG with it cold out, should get near 30 warmed up.  It's even pretty big inside (I fit pretty good).  Hatchback too so I can toss junk in the back (Good junkyard car).  Parts are fairly common and cheap too.

Plus they look pretty cool, lots of options for "themes" too  :evil:   :roll:

yeah the engines in Omni/Horizon and K cars are loud because they're always having wristpin slap. sounds like annoying knocking the time you drive the car. but they are reliable motors (if you can look past the headgaskets, although no 2.2L or the like ever popped one in any car i had)
