Hi my name is Carmen and I own a 1991 Stealth RT.

I'm having problems with it and don't know where to turn. When I turn the car on it shuts off when I put it in drive. I'm not sure if it is the air flow meter or worse, can someone help me. I'm at joiseygirl818204@aol.com

Thank you.

To: Shirley, I think the problem may be your timing belt. I have a friend that had the same trouble that you are having and he had the transmission replaced twice. Later, he found out that he only needed to change the timing belt.

Anyone who needs help, go to www.3si.org and check out the forums. You can get any question answered by people who know what they are talking about. Just thought I'd point you in that direction.

My name is Rachel and I am now driving a '93 black Dodge Stealth. My mom got it for me for my sixteenth birthday. It has American Racing Sniper rims on it so it looks awesome. I love it!

I have a 1993 twin turbo and it is the best car in the world. Small problems here and there, but as long as my manual transmission holds up I'm happy. People always look and comment, and the best thing is that in 20 years it'll be worth more than new with so few of them made.

I recently purchased a 1992 pearl white Dodge Stealth R/T. I absolutely love this car. I seem to be having a problem and I am not exactly sure what it is. In changing gears going from each gear it seems to drag a bit and then kicks in. Can you tell me what this possibly may be?

I am strongly considering purchasing my dream car; the beautiful Dodge Stealth is the only sports car I've ever wanted for nearly 15 years. If so, I will do so in a couple of days on Ebay. However, I would sincerely appreciate some feedback/advice from someone very familiar with their Stealth on a couple of matters that I should be apprised of, before taking on this car:

How many miles can I expect to get out of this car? (It's life?) What is the availability of parts, specifically transmission and electronic components? The one I want is in perfect shape in & out, but has 130,000 miles - is it wise? How long can I enjoy it?

Thank you for your feedback, soon.

Considering most of the cars are over 10 years old, you'd expect there to be some problems. The predicted reliablility of the Stealth/3000 GT is extremely high for that of a sports car. Especially if you're comparing it to a Camaro or Mustang.

I have a 1993 stealth RT and I am having trouble with my manual transmission. If anyone can help me find a web site at which I can buy a new or rebuilt transmission at a reasonable price. Thanks for your help, it means a lot to me.

I have a wild blue 1992 Stealth RT with 73,000 miles on it. Texas just instituted an annual vehicle emissions test which my car fails repeatedly. New plugs, a costly tune up, and similar alterations work to no avail. Does anyone have a similar problem or any insight on how to remedy this issue?

I'm a 2 year owner of a 1993 Stealth RT TT and love driving this vehicle. For would be buyers, I can provide a few comments:

Although this vehicle performs great in the winter (with proper tires) it does not like the cold. I'm in northern British Columbia and if it's below -25C it is difficult to start. Also, below -10 the manual transmission can be tough shifting until the car is really warmed up.

First and Second gears have been sticky on occasion even after the factory recall maintenance was done.

A few parts have broken, they do cost a little more, and if you're not in a major centre, you may have to wait a day or so for parts to arrive.

I wouldn't trade it for another vehicle though.

I am having the same problem as the person who wrote this, but my stealth is a 93 Teal in color. If this person is around can you advise on what the problem was. I think it's in the fuel injectors or gas, but could be the ECU which was just replaced due to the stereo shop frying the old one.

Hello I have a 1993 red stealth base model with an automatic transmission I have two questions can I switch the base motor with a DOHC? will it fit? also can I switch the automatic with a 5 speed? how much work would this entail?

I have a 93 dodge stealth (originally silver in color... it is now black) i have had it for 6 years and it now has 140,000 miles on it and still running strong. I did however have a major electrical problem in the car that has not been totally fixed yet, I have gone thru 2 radiators, 2 clutches, and have done numerous other small repairs here and there. I do love this car and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I plan on having this til I retire (I'm only 23) i was just wondering if anyone else has had the electrical problems I'm having.

Hi, my name is Paul and own a 93 stealth. I love this car even though its just the base model. My problem is I had the transmission rebuilt and the car sat garaged a year, then I had the water pump and timing belt replaced. It drove perfect for a week then the transmission went out. Can anybody tell me why?And, where can I purchase a quality transmission for my car?

Hi, my name is Justin and I own a 1993 Dodge Stealth R/T. The car is an amazing car. Although it's an automatic, it still has extremely good response. 222hp is a lot of hp for me, and should be for a lot of you. Although this r/t fits my needs, it may not be enough horsepower for you, But hey who am I to judge, everybody likes their own styles. Well anyways, I am the original owner and I got the car for my 18th birthday just at the end of 1993. It has just over 38k, believe it or not.

The question I've got for you lot is about my transmission. Now she's got almost 40k on her and the transmission keeps slipping. I honestly don't understand wants going on, especially when it's practically new?

One time I was driving on a straight road and I was doing around 60, but the car wouldn't go into gear 4 so I put my foot down and finally when I reached around 5 thousand revs it went into 4th gear. Any comments or hints about what's going on would be good.

Are they really worth all the work?

How about forgetting the Dodge Stealth and just get a Viper!! Or how about a Corvette that is not twin turbo or 4 valve per cylinder, but still produces the same amount of power or even more. Better yet, how about a 2002 or so SS Camaro with more power than a stock Stealth R/T.

28th Dec 2009, 05:25

How about comparing apples to apples. Stealth came out about a decade ago and it can hang with those cars you mention... and better in bad weather. The car will be a collector item soon due to the limited production number. Can you say the same for the cars you mentioned? The SS Camaro's front looks like a catfish. No thanks.
