Re: Exhaust Adventures Last try

Aero exhaust makes resonators that are better flowing than stock but should take away the drone.

Re: Exhaust Adventures Last try

Well I "fixed"my drone problem.Installed a Corsa system.Really fit poorly,lots louder than Magnaflow.Still has drone at lower speeds don't know about interstate speeds which was what i was trying to cure.My adventure onto the interstate was a disaster.Came off the on ramp hard,merged into 75mph traffic just fine.Suddenly engine shuts down,dead,coast to safe spot white smoke from under hood.Dealership says starter stuck open,burned out,coasting in gear blew tranny,gave me a Caravan to drive.I'm going into hiding.What the hell next?

Re: Exhaust Adventures Last try

Holy cow -- I don't like reading stories like these. A caravan is probably the last Chrysler product I'd want to drive. Good luck in your repair.

Re: Exhaust Adventures Last try

Thanks,just left the dealership.New converter,pump and some other burned up stuff is on order for Monday delivery.(I hope) Mechanic says he thinks starter stuck on, burned out and shut down engine which produced high pressure as I coasted to a stop which cracked a bunch of stuff he had lying on the bench. Doesn't know why but it's not the first one he has seen or heard of.Lucky I was near home and under warrenty.(whew!)

Re: Exhaust Adventures Last try

I walked in the shop from the back door and talked to the mechanic doing the work,(nice guy) he wants to blame the whole thing on the starter.I wonder what the guys up front will have to say when somebody (not me)has to pay the bill?
