Once again, the valve cover gasket is leaking. I guess I'll give a try with the silicone gasket in a tube this time around. I recently had a carbon cleaning done, made a noticeable difference in acceleration at mid throttle. It has this quirky deal going on most noticably when it's cold outside. Once in awhile it starts and dies immediatly, after resetting the PCM it starts up. It's one of those things that's about impossible to troubleshoot until it just fails to start.

Same guy again, I had to replace the O2 sensor, and I have what I believe is a busted weld in the rear sway bar. 106k miles and still going strong.

Me again, the sway bar isn't the problem, the rear spring insulators have vaporized and now I got metal to metal contact. Just replaced the headliner, other than that it is still going strong at 115k, and I put about 300 miles on it a week now. I can't talk myself into getting rid of it, and it shows no sign of dying anytime soon. Even though it gets about 28 mpg, paying $35 to fill it up is painful, especially when I bought it, it cost around $13.

It's a year later and I'm almost at 131k miles. I have confirmed the rear so-called sway bar weld is busted on the left side, I replaced the rear springs due to them sagging and new shocks in the rear as well a while back. It is still going strong, I drive it about 60 miles a day.

I'm up to 136k now, since that time I added a much welcome cruise control kit. Everything is still working OK.

152k miles now. The water pump gasket has developed a tiny leak, not enough to even matter really. It keeps going getting me to and from work about 65 miles a day. Too bad Chrysler can't make a car worth anything nowadays.

Over 160k now, no new problems to report. Did I ever mention it has the original exhaust? The muffler has a 1 inch crack in the seam that makes a bumble bee in a beer can sound, but no big deal.

Over 171k miles. It could use some front end work. Lots of clunking over bumps. The head gasket leaks oil, but not enough to even matter to me.

Over 180k miles. The wiper motor began to crap out a week ago so that's today's job replacing that. Can't get a new one from Mopar, car too old so I bought a new from NAPA. I have plugged a hole in the original muffler, weld the heck out of the rear stabilizer bar that broke a weld years ago, and put poly stab bar bushings up front. No more clunks! Replaced alternator front bushings and tension bushing thing to cure a belt squeal.

Just turned over 190k miles today. I replaced the head gasket a few months ago because it was leaking oil to the point of leaving spots on the garage floor, and I grew tired of smelling burning oil when at a stop. Also put on a set of new tires, and I broke down and bought a new muffler to replace the original.

Had replace the rear springs back in September, both were busted, I don't recommend TRW springs, I replaced them with Bendix. Otherwise still running great. I just passed 198k.

It turned over 200k today, now I am in the allpar 200k club. Needs a right outer tie rod replaced... again.
5th Jan 2012, 19:04
Over 210k. Some time ago I put 2 new outer tie rods in and 2 lower control arm ball joints, just some normal wear items. I don't know if I can ever part with it, maybe if it was crashed, still drive it 60 miles daily.

I have a problem with my 93 Plymouth Sundance. It was running fine, and the next morning it wasn't running at all. It's got a new computer, new coil pack, and is still not getting fire to it. What else could it be? If you see this, and could help me, please contact me at 573-712-4021. I could use some advice.

Hello, I also have a 93 Plymouth Duster. Were you able to reset the PCM computer on your own, or did you have to have a mechanic do it? I have the same issue right now. It cranks; new battery, but no spark.
If you have time, please call. Dustine has been parked 3 days. 310-334-9860.
