They already know they have a lousy sports car. Unless the manual was an order of magnitude more refined than the JK application, it'd just be the poop icing on the Crossfire turd cake.

Not sure if this issue has been fixed on the line yet, but '12 and '13 owners were finding their transmissions underfilled.

If you don't need to reuse it, there is a much easier way. Put channel locks on it and turn it right or left until it breaks loose, then lift it right off. I did this when I replaced the transfer...

He also could have run into an oil refinery/fireworks factory and blown up a whole town... But he didn't. Thats the problem with focusing on what didn't happen.

I think he already did what he's gonna do not to let it happen again! I can see why he didn't want to say, this is going to turn into a nanny thread.

I sought out a 6 speed with 3.73 gearing. Its my first manual transmission vehicle in well over 10 years and no regrets. What everyone said is correct, it has long throws, wiggles around like a...

I think they damaged/disconnected one of the rear wheel speed sensors. You have to pull everything apart since the parking brake is inside the hub of the rear rotor.

I think they chose the Ford GT350 and the Focus RS because they're only available in manual. Thats a short list of cars today!

I didn't know you could still get a manual trans in the Ram HD. Thats pretty frigging cool. Surprised at zero Audi's on the list. I thought their take rate on manuals was the highest of all companies.

There is a lot in play here... The fact that it probably has 3.21 gears has already been mentioned. A lot of people (me included) have noticed the Pentastar "wakes up" somewhere north of 2,000 miles....

Holy crap, it costs more than a Challenger Hellcat and JKU Rubicon combined. I'd rather just have both vehicles.

Wow. If it was a 2012, the default response would be "of course!". Rarely hear that about anything 2013 and up!

My wild-ass-guess would be low oil pressure due to the two speed pump being stuck in the low pressure mode. That trips a check engine light though.

Very curious about the solution to this.

I don't really know enough about any of that to debate it, but the Dodge Dakota and Ford Ranger were discontinued for overlap with the Ram and F-150. Mercury and Pontiac are gone because American...

I'm only going to venture a guess that since your first mechanic started with the plugs to clear the code, it involves some type of misfire.

Did the second place pull the new plugs and find them...

Its not you! I think the reverse is a taller gear than first. I never understood why they did that, I don't need to go 25mph in reverse.

I think the 4 low is the much better option than feathering...
