How do u change out a power steering pump on a dodge magnum 2006
transmission professionals who I have asked gave me two different opinions. I wonder which is the right advice? I am not having problems, I just want to get it done. And does it make a difference by it being an all wheel drive?
what is the foot pound torque on the main and the rod bearing caps?
2006 Dodge Magnum Recalls
On vehicles equipped with the police option package and a column mounted shifter, the gearshift cable may become disconnected from its mounting bracket, causing the position display to be incorrect. This can result in the vehicle moving in a unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will add a redundant locking mechanism to the gearshift cable at the mounting bracket. The recall is expected to begin on November 10, 2008. The Dodge recall number is H37.
There may be inadequate clearance between the rear brake lines and the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) tube. Over time, contact between the brake lines and EGR tube can wear the brake lines and cause a leak. If the brake lines leak, stopping distance can increase, and there is potential for an engine compartment fire. Dealers will inspect the rear brake tubes for damage and replace them. A clip will be installed to secure the brake tubes to the strut tower and maintain proper clearance to the EGR tube. The recall began June 26, 2006. The Chrysler recall number is F18.
On certain automatic transmissions, the cup plug that retains the park pawl anchor shaft may be improperly installed. If the shaft moves out of position, the vehicle may not be able to achieve "park" position. If this occurs and the parking brake is not applied, the vehicle may roll, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the transmission and install a bracket to ensure the park pawl anchor shaft is retained in the proper position. This recall is expected to begin on November 28, 2005. The Chrysler recall number is E14.

my '06 magnum which I bought used with 61800k had sat for about 14 months and seemed to run well when I test drove it but now the gas petal sticks and will rev to 4k for about 6-10 secs before returning to idle. I have sprayed the pedal arm where it looked like there may be a problem but no help. anybody experiencing a similar problem?
I purchased my 2006 Dodge Magnum SXT in May last year. The car has 175k and 3 weeks ago the timing belt shredded and now the car has no compression. I was informed that it was a non-interference engine. Now I'm paying for a car that doesn't even run.
