1992 Dodge Stealth R/T DOHC non turbo

Summary:

Amazing car, expensive, and a pain in the ass to work on

Faults:

Bought with bad driver's side window motor. After a couple of months, the passenger side went bad.

Leaks clutch fluid.

Harmonic balancer is shot; cost 300.

ECS doesn't work, because the struts aren't in the best shape.

Leaks gas.

General Comments:

First off, let me say good luck trying to find parts for this car. That is the one thing I do not like about it. No stores ever have parts for these cars... understandable though, as it was only made for 6 years.

The window motors aren't terrible; they get old and break; some before others.

As far as my clutch fluid leaking, I'm not sure where that's coming from. Planning on putting in a new slave cylinder.

Harmonic balancer is 300 from a parts store with a discount.

Struts are ridiculous. No parts stores sell the ones with ECS; you have to get those through the Dodge dealership for the amazing price of $430 each!! I went with the used ones from a junk yard for 135 each...

Other than that, the car is amazing. I live in Michigan, and the car handles great in the winter. Any car will; you just need to know how to drive it.

The car is fast and handles great... gas mileage is OK; about 20-21 on the highway... I expected more... The other downfall is having to burn premium, which is now 3.40 a gallon... basically I'm paying as much as I should for having a full size truck.

Also, the engineering into this car is ridiculous. To change your spark plugs, you need to remove the intake manifold... Ridiculous! And you have about 2-3 inches between your belts and the side wall of the car.

1992 Dodge Stealth ES 3.0 DOHC

Summary:

Fast and reliable, but not a winter car

Faults:

Replaced one CV joint at 100,000.

Main computer corroded at 138,000.

General Comments:

Superb car. I hesitated for years about getting a Stealth or 3000GT, but the car has performed perfectly.

Just recently the main computer corroded, but I got it rebuilt for $150.00, and a CV joint needed replacing, which was $60.00 plus labor.

It's a very fast comfortable car. If you are looking to get one, go for the DOHC engine because the SOHC engine is about 100 HP less and is a real junk motor.

The only problem is these cars use and need premium fuel. If you think you can buy one and run it on mid-grade, you need to get another car because all you will do is ruin the motor and get bad fuel economy. I get between 24 and 28 mpg using premium.

You also have to respect these cars because they can be a handful in the wet, and impossible to drive in the snow because of the 8 inch wide tires. These are not winter cars, and even in the wet if you give the car too much gas it will over-steer and put you in a situation that's hard to correct. I would not recommend a Stealth or Mitsubishi 3000gt for a 1st car or young teenager.

I have a daughter that inherited our 92 Stealth V6 DOHC. This car has never given any trouble until she got it.

It started dying after it gets hot. Runs great until it gets hot and then it sputters and dies. Let it cool and it will run again for a while until it gets hot. We put a new ECU in it and that did not solve the problem. Needless to say the Dodge dealership recommended the crank angle sensor and that was not it either. So if you figure this out let me know for it has been to 4 mechanics and they cannot figure out why it is doing this.

I had a similar problem. Always started right up first thing in the day, but would get very temperamental once the engine was warm. It wouldn't stall once it was rolling, but I had to keep revving it at stoplights, and if I turned it off, look out! Would not usually start again until it cooled off (20 minutes or more). So I had to leave it running if I went in to a convenience store, etc. Or else plan on staying longer than 20 minutes. Finally was fixed by just replacing a sensor. Sorry I don't know which one, but the mechanic said something about the computer was thinking it was extremely, extremely cold out and was trying to compensate. Worked great after that.
