    viper frightening revs drop

    I had something very similar on my 97. In my case when the RPMs would drop and the engine would often die. To correct my issue, I had to replace my Idle Air Controller.

    Idle Air Controller

    Strange it was soooo hard to get to this point. Maybe if I had let it idle longer and/more times it would have eventually adjusted itself. But, got lucky, did not damage the IAC and it is back running great just in time to put it away for the winter.

    Well, good news! The problem is now solved. So, here is a rundown of has happened since I last posted. Talked to Dan Cragin at Specialty Performance. During the discussion, he mentioned that an deal tool would should be used to adjust the IAC to get the idle close enough so that the self...

    Idle Air Controller

    Yes, there is a process for it to reset. The way I understand it, you drive the car for 10-15 miles with the AC on. Stop, let it cool down. Then repeat 4-5 times. I have done this process several times after replacing the battery/disconnecting the battery. I did just do some mods, including...

    Idle Air Controller

    Good point. I never thought to try that. I will give it a try later today. I will feel totally stupid if that is all it is.

    Help with blown A.C. hose - 2001 RT-10

    All three of my AC lines on my 97 GTS that were leaking at the crimp between the hard line and the hose. A local hydraulic shop replaced the hose, replaced the crimp and reassembled them for a whopping $25. Two of the three (don't remember which two) were no available anywhere.

    Back in a GTS

    Looks great. But, I am probably a little partial since it is a twin to the one I have.

    New Owner 1997 GTS B/W

    They are Forgestar’s. I got them from Tony at DV8 Motoring. It took about a month to get them once I ordered them due the a a availability of cores and powder coating. Cost was much more reasonable compared to other options. The wheels are very high quality and reasonably light weight. I have...
