Smile New Guy Introduction

I was in a heap of trouble last night tring to find the darn PCV on my Intrepid and Solomd quickly came to my aid. Thanks a million. Only one other forum I have visited, well still visit, has been as quick and courteous, Durango Owners Club. I think I have two great forums to visit now. Anyway, we hail from Houston Texas. We have a 2001 Platinum Intrepid ES with the 3.2L. It has the black leather interior. The colors were not our first choice but we needed a family vehicle in a hurry. This is also our second Intrepid. Our first was a 1994 ES 3.5, Driftwood with tan leather. That was a great car. But it left my wife stranded twice. Once with a belt tensioner bolt for the timing belt shearing, the second when the plastic overflow reservior ruptured while on a trip to the panhandle. It was sold with 59K miles in 1999 and still looked sharp. I just could not trust it anymore. Technically, that was our 2nd with the 2001 being our 3rd Intrepid. The first one we purchased in 1994 was driven off of the lot with a ticking sound from the engine. Fortunately the dealer management as well as the salemen and make-ready guys were all hanging out when we drove off and heard and acknowleged the sound. We all chalked it up to the saleman putting 87 in the tank instead of the required 89. A week later and a couple of tanks we took it back to the dealer for a look-see. Turns out the main bearings were shot already. The setup for the mains was one of the reasons I wanted the car in the first place. The car had less than 500 miles on it. The dealer was cool about it and searched for another one just like it. Thats how we got the second 94. We also have a 99 Deep Amythest SLT+ Durango 5.2, tan leather, LS rearend, dual exhaust and Shaker Hood. This is what replaced the 94 Intrepid. My wife liked it, but missed her Intrepid. So in 2001, I had a brain-fart and pulled out in front of someone and they clipped the front of the Durango. So she got a new Intrepid out of the deal and I got a custom Durango. I also have a 1992 Dodge Dakota LE 3.9l with 249K miles that serves as my daily work ride. First brand new vehicle I ever purchased and just cant seem to part with it. Lastly there is a 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner parked in my shop that I purchased in 1985. Visually, it is in pretty good shape, mechanically, well it needs alot of TLC. I got tired of looking at it one day a year or so ago and decided to get it running again. I took off the fuel tank and cleaned it up, rebuilt the carb and took it for a spin. I realized that the brake lines had rusted up pretty good when I tried to stop. It has been parked again ever since. I may get sold. I talked to a Dodge saleman last night, tried to get some dealer help on the PCV issue, anyway, he told me the Ram SRT10 was running about $47K. While it would be a bit heart breaking to sell the 'Runner, replacing one legend with a soon to be legend should soften the blow alittle. I just have to get the other half of the team on the same page with me now.
