The Problem Page!3.20.03Dear shadow owners,Hi my name is Matt J, I drive I 1994 dodge shadow es v6. It has almost 135,000 miles on it and it runs great. It runs high 15's in the 1/4 mile. Its a fast little car. I have done little mods to it. I love my car a lot, but it has one problem. There is a noise coming from the front of the car, i can not locate it any further. It sounds like a hard "gunk". its hard to explain. I can feel it in the floor boards when it happens. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. It only happens when there is twist in the front of the body or sub-frame. It could happen from a hard turn while hitting the gas to just hitting the gas pedal from a stop. 80% of the time its happening on a turn. I have taken the car MANY times to MANY places to see if the techs can find the problem, all negative. I have replaced all engine and trans mounts. the steering rack brackets are old, but the repair people said thats most likey not it. They said that the car was drivable and safe, and until there damage or more proof to see where the problem is coming from, they told me to keep on driving it. You guys are my last hope to fix this problem. It has been happening for the last 35,000 miles. Any help would be great! Thanks!!5.29.03Hey guys me Matt J again. Well my front end problem has become worse and worse. The "gunk" noise is becoming louder and louder. I have been getting a lot of your respones. I think the problem lies within something in the strut tower. Maybe a bearing plate or the bolts have come lose? I dont know but i really want to get it fixed. Thanks for all your help!!10.2.03 11:02pm CTHey guys its me Matt J. Where the heck has all the time gone. I can't believe its fall already. so much has changed to my "Dodge Racing" I've got bad news and good news. First the kind of good/bad news. Around March 15th of 2003 i got a job at a mazda dealership. It was a cool job i got to drive around all differnt types of cars. cars like BMW 530's to the brand new 2004 Rx-8. The job lasted 3 awsome months until the police pulled me over "Saying" i was speeding and that i wasnt using my turn signal. Well let me just say that when your almost doing twice the speed limit,THERE IS NO NEED FOR A TURN SIGNAL!!! Lost my job that day. But no worries, 300 dollars later and very mad parents i was free to drive again with a vaild drivers license. The cool part is that i got a better job that day, working at another car dealer that pays more, and less work, and closer to home. Kind of lucked out? Maybe, i guess. Im still working for the same dealership but im also attending UTI, which is a automotive/diesel school. I have no time to work on my car, which sucks!! because last week when driving to UTI at 5:45am the shadow decided to quit running. Yea! its fun being stuck on the side of the road with construction and no heat, Fun, Fun! So the real bad news is that the shadow is sitting in back of the dealership waiting to be fixed. That is why im typing this long boring message. See the problem is that the engine will crank normal, but wont start up. There is no fuel pressure and no spark. All the fuses are good. The good part is that i have full coverage on the car. the bad part is that i can't find a cliff to push it off of. He, he, just kidding, i would never push it off of a cliff, but maybe into a river? Well im just here to complain. I cant believe your still reading this, i wouldn't. IF you have any kool stories about COPS let me know. o'yeah the shadow is bone stock now and has over 146,000 miles on her and still takes v6 3.8 mustangs and camaros. 5.5.04Hey everybody!!Well i sold the Shadow last week. IT was hard coming home from work and not seeing it in the driveway-I almost cryied.But there is good news to this. I bought a 01 Neon R/T. So all i have to say is I will always remeber good times! Matt J.
