So I checked my vin when I bought the car. Fuel rail was recalled on it of course, and was done, as well as every other recall when it came out.
So after a few months of inactivity and proper storage on the road *because the car wasnt up to spec back then and I wanted to take it off to save cash, which I did, big time.* been driving it for two weeks, and have been smelling some gas. Especially when the vents were on.
Saw my mechanic buddies in their shop tonight.
They said my right fuel rail is pissing out gas.
They're not sure if it's an injector for sure because of the large plenum in the way, but im just going to pay them at their ridiculously LOW hourly rate to replace the parts that cost so little. To have it done RIGHT, because they've always done a top knotch job, and care about my car and my safety.
I'll call dodge after with my bill. ;)
$30 an hour in a professional shop of theirs compared to the local 80ish is a steal. Said it'll take 4 hours. (rough estimate, but they're usually dead on.)
So we'll see if I can't improve that.. well too low to calculate fuel milage is afterwards, and low idle..
Getting done when I wake up tommorrow. ;)
I'll bring my digi when they do the repair. Get lots of great pics for you guys and gals. ;) (all proper gaskets will be replaced too etc.)
Bad milage? weird idle? LIttle top end power? no gas smell? replaced proper sensors? wait a few months, it'll start to smell like gas.
GOod night, my gf's harassing me to come to bed. ;)
