Hi all. I own a 94 Concorde with the 3.5 and all wheel disks... Just signed up here today. I must admit this is a great site...

OK... Yesterday I found out the hard way that the 3.5 is (thankfully), a non-interference motor. On my way to work, pulling away from a stop with a Camaro running hard. Had the 'Corde floored and pulling away from the Chevy, second gear at 5000 RPM, the timing belt snapped... As a result, I also ripped the transaxle mount in the rear...

Got the belt replaced (found out I have the plastic timing belt temsioner pulley) in about an hour and a half (I've already changed the waterpump myself...) and plan to change it out soon, but will use a new waterpump and cahnge the front crank and cam seals while I'm ripping things apart soon... I do most of my own maintenance and repair work. I'll also be changing front suspension bushings. Anyone know of urethane replacements for stock bushings?

Oh yeah, I drive 140 miles a day roundtrip, average about 80 MPH as much as possible. I tap the 110 MPH speed limiter at least once a week... Any way I can lose that?

I've heard the limiter is between 109 and 115...depending on the tires you have on it. Mine went to 109 when i had my Michelin tires and when i got my Yokohamas it went up to 112.

Hey pimp boy can you explain that to me please

the part about changing tires and it changed the setting of the gov on yer car

I just dont see how that's possible

could the tire change have screwed up yer speedo's calibration?


I could be wrong, I am often wrong
