I Hate OBD I, With A Passion [Jun. 28th, 2005|04:47 am]

But it doesn't mean I hate the LH. Just the fact of the matter is, all the 1993 - 1995 models had this bitch ass complex electrical network that once a glitch happens, you'll spend the next 20 years trying to figure out where the short or fault lies in. Screw that. I sold my 1994 3.5L. But all LH car are equipped with R134A a/c units. I miss the acceleration of the Intrepid ES, as I'm currently driving a Ford Escort GT. The little econo car will be my wife's next car after I sell the 1992 Lebaron. The classic K-car box is showing its age and consumes more oil that I would like. I'm attempting to pick up a 1996 - 1997 Intrepid ES, again probably with the 3.5L. The 3.3L, although tough as nails, just doesn't seem to inspire me with any supreme muscle car power. All 1996 and up vehicles have OBD II, a universal diagnostic adapter standarized by the government to make servicing electrical problems a breeze. Sadly, the 1996 - 1997 LH 3.5L engines will haunt you with four oxygen sensors, triggering possible foul language when you go to Autozone. But you'll save a lot more in the software repair department. I'm not considering the 2G versions as the battery is mounted in a awkward location limiting replacement access. Motherfuckers. New Mopar gets more and more difficult. Otherwise, I would love to get a 300M Special or Intrepid R/T. I was told the 1G 3.5L is a non-interference engine now, according to the owners forum. I'm not sure about the 2G 3.2L and 3.5L models though.
