08 Dodge Caravan 3.3

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

The vehicle has just over 102,000 miles on it.
I had a low hum noise from my front right wheel. Brought it to my local mechanic who took it for a short ride and stated it needed a new front right wheel bearing & hub which he replaced. $342.00 for parts and labor.
All is quiet again.

Chrysler trademarks 8 Mile, ProMaster

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Filed under: , , , , , ,

Fiat Ducato van - red - front three-quarter view

Chrysler has been busy at the trademark office. Allpar.com reports the manufacturer has laid claim to a stack of new names, including Detroit Motor Works, Wrangler Freedom Edition, 8 Mile, Crossroad and Chrysler 100, as well as Ram ProMaster and the Ram ProMaster City. The automaker has made no secret of the fact that it wants to build a new small car, and that the machine will almost certainly ride under the Chrysler 100 banner. Dealers reportedly got a closer look at the vehicle at a recent gathering in Las Vegas.

Likewise, the two ProMaster names are little surprise, as Fiat intends to give the Ford Transit and Transit connect some competition with its own European-style Ducato vans. Now it looks as if those will come with ProMaster badges.

But, names like Detroit Motor Works, 8 Mile and Crossroad all leave the door open for some speculation. Allpar.com also reports Chrysler has laid claim to Active Air, which it speculates may be applied to the company’s variable-length intake runners.

VW ending Kombi production after 63-year run

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Filed under: , , ,

No, the picture above is not that of a fully restored Volkswagen Bus. It is actually a 2012 Volkswagen Kombi that is still in production in Brazil… for now. Due to tougher safety regulations, the Kombi’s days are numbered as Brazil’s government is requiring all new cars to come with dual front airbags and anti-lock brakes as standard equipment. No word on a replacement for the long-lived Kombi, but it won’t be the VW Bulli.

Originally known as the Type 2, the iconic Volkswagen van first debuted back in 1950. Matching its classic styling, Car and Driver points out that the Kombi replaced the original air-cooled engine with a liquid-cooled mill only within the last decade.

Volkswagen has quite a history of squeezing every last year out of its designs between the original Beetle that was produced from 1938 through 2003 in Mexico and the MkI Golf that was introduced in 1974 and ended production in South Africa in 2009.

Renault donates all-electric Popemobile to His Holiness

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Filed under: , , , ,

Renault Popemobile Kangoo Maxi ZE

Popes know how to travel in style, as the long list of iconic Popemobiles can attest to. In recent years, His Holiness Benedict XVI – aka the “Green Pope” – has been trying to clean up those bubbly vehicles with alternative powertrains. He wanted a plug-in hybrid from Mercedes-Benz or a solar-powered car, but those have yet to come to fruition. In July, the Vatican did get an all-electric vehicle from NWG Zero.

The latest holy roller is a new all-electric vehicle from Renault. Modified with help from Gruau, the Kangoo Maxi Z.E. was donated to the Vatican by Renault-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn at the Holy Father’s summer residence in Castel Gandolfo. The Pope’s bodyguards can ride in EV style, too, since Renault donated a second EV, that one decked out in blue and white, to the Corps of Gendarmerie of Vatican City.

The EVs use lithium-ion batteries for an estimated range of 105 miles on the lenient European NEDC test cycle. The interiors “are fitted with two particularly comfortable separate seats at the rear,” says Renault. The roof opens, too, in case His Holiness would like to stand and wave at people who don’t get free electric cars.

Blower Motor root cause of Resistor going bad?

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Hi, all.

2002 T&C LXi

I just replaced the “resistor” (part #973-027, $51 total) because my blower was stuck on high all the time.

The new one went bad after 4 days. Does this _automatically_ point to the blower motor as drawing too many amps? Or could I have gotten a bad resistor?

Ford unveils slicker, sleeker 2014 Transit Connect [w/video]

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Filed under: , ,

Well, hello there. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the next-generation Ford Transit Connect (nevermind that Tourneo Connect front plate in the photo above), making its global debut today at an event in Amsterdam. And don’t think this is some one-off Euro example, either. The handsome beast you see here will be making its way to North America toward the end of 2013.

As we first saw in some spy shots earlier this week, the next-generation Transit Connect borrows heavily from the smaller Focus and Fiesta models in terms of design, proudly wearing the automaker’s trapezoidal grille. Smaller, sleeker headlamps and more pronounced foglamps finish off what’s truly an attractive front end, and new wheel options go a long way to rid the TC of its all-work-and-no-play image. Around back, slimmer taillamps have been fitted, and as we can see here, the little van’s barn doors have been ditched in favor of a more traditional liftgate. (No word on if Ford will still offer the two-door setup.)

Mum’s the word on powertrain details, though Ford’s brief press release states that Europe will receive “highly-efficient downsized diesel and petrol engines,” while here in the United States, we’ll make due with “a tailored range of gasoline powertrains.”

European deliveries of the 2014 Transit Connect are scheduled to start at the end of 2013, and U.S.-spec cars should arrive shortly thereafter. Hit the jump for Ford’s official press blast.
