I frequently receive comments from people regarding my 1993 TT AWD pearl white Stealth. Surprisingly, though people like it's looks, they believe it to be an inferior product (probably because they assume it is a Chrysler). WRONG! I love the car and will never sell it! Power upgrades are easy and so are the girls the car attracts. To all Stealth Turbo owners, don't give the car up, 'cause they don't make many like 'em. Nadeem Toronto, Canada.

I have a 93 Stealth non-turbo that uses 2 quarts of oil per 3000 miles! Valve stem seals failed at 70,000 miles. Anyone else have this problem?

I recently purchased a 91 Twin Turbo Stealth. Upon the purchase I knew I would need a new clutch. But only two weeks later, the engine started knocking. Turns out that without warning from the oil pressure gauge, the oil pump wasn't holding good pressure because my rod bearings dried up. I ended up having to rebuild the entire engine. Has anyone else had this problem?

I bought a 1992 Stealth TT and had the same problem with my oil pressure.
Also have had to have the engine rebuilt back in Feb 2001, and am still yet to get it back. Not sure what caused it and the dealership couldn't come up with anything either.
Bought the car in Aug 2000, only had 56000 miles. Someone had told me that it might have been due to the low miles and maybe the car sat for a period of time right before I bought it, causing it to build up a little sludge that might have clogged the oil pump screen. Not sure how many miles on yours, but could have been similar.

I have a 1992 twin turbo beast and I was responding to the engine knock comment. I too had a fifteen hundred dollar engine rebuild done at 70,000 miles. It turned out to be the lifters. when I changed them the engine sounds went away. I'm still having a few problems with the clutch I replaced about 6 months ago, but I'll have it figured out soon. It's a small price to pay for true love.
P.S.- A word to the wise... invest in a turbo timer and blow off valve. you'll understand in a year or two.

I have a black on black 92 stealth. It has 80,000 miles and it's been well taken care of. I love this car. The only thing I suggest you watch out for is to make sure you change your timing belt when needed. A lot of people mistake the timing belt for something else, so beware.

I am the owner of a 1995 Dodge Stealth RT it has 67,000miles. I am in the process of having the valve seats and timing belt replaced (ouch). The car started smoking when it idled and on take off. I love the car it is bright red with dark gray interior and it always turns heads.

I have a 1992 Black five speed Stealth RT, I love the car, and its my second one. The only thing that I can't figure out on the car is in the morning it is really slow, and the engine bogs a lot until it heats up?? I have recently replaced the plugs and wires, and I am pretty sure that it started to do this after the tune up. I used new factory wires and "Bosch platinum plus 4" plugs. Any info would be appreciated thank you.

Thanks again, Mike.

I own a 1993 Dodge Stealth RT Twin Turbo and need a new transmission. I have located one in California, but I live in Canada. I was wondering if anyone has dealt with mdauto of Alpine CA and if so was the result satisfactory?

I have a 92 stealth R/T twin turbo all wheel drive and I love it 2 death! Never get rid of your stealths, the knock problem can be because your fuel.. yes I know it sounds crazy, but you may have too high octane in it.. I did that with my car and it took the knock right away.. I have no clue why I just read it somewhere and did it.. but the only thing I don't like about the stealth is the timing, I do ALL the work on my car and the timing is the worst part.

I recently purchased a 93 R/T TWIN TURBO, and I love it, my older brother had one and ever since then I was determined to get one. My question is regarding stereo systems. I have installed 2 J L Audio 10's and a 250 watt M T X Thunder Amp. Since then it has killed my alternator TWICE, once was a $400 rebuild and the other time my battery actually blew up, but its was a little more electrical, it just needed a charge. Anyone who drive one knows that all of the little problems all tie together I was told to get a capacitor and put a battery in my trunk. Does anyone know if this is the only solution??? If any one knows please help!!! I love my car and my radio to much to give up either of them!!

Hello I was looking into buying a 92 Dodge Stealth... it looks like a very nice car and from what I hear, it drives very nicely. The only thing is that it has about 198,000 miles on it... if the car has been taken care of well, what's the chance that the engine will need to be rebuilt, and about how long after I buy it, do you think it will need to be rebuilt? Please someone help me out. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
