    97 xlt stalling

    i have a 1997 xlt 4.0 v6 sohc (automatic). i was recently parallel parking my car and in drive and reverse i would rev the car up in drive to about 1500 and then the rpms would drop down below 200 and stalls. This happened 3 or 4 times. I was told this wasnt a pcv valve problem or MAFS...

    MTX Thunderform owners....

    you have to seal off anywhere that air gets through too. the main problem i have is the back hatch rattle... short of expandable foaming your entire back hatch, it is hard to stop the wiper motor and opening mechanism from rattling. i tried with foam tape and the sort... still not helping.

    Replacing my factory unit

    you need 2 harnesses i think. and im guessing you need to wire your accessory to the harness because you don't have constant power to your head unit (ie the car has to be on to use the radio?) if not... im confused :(

    Sub boxes under back seat?

    subs under seats sound terrible. build a stealth box, you'll enjoy it more.

    Somebody help, removed rear sub to replace it and now rear door speakers nor sub work

    you could have shorted the amp that's powering it? i've done it before if the + lead touches the chassis when the car is on or touches another lead, it could short your amp. And usually, subs are run on the rear channels, so maybe that could be the problem?

    I'm building a false floor

    the 8w0's have less then 1.5" excursion i think. So u should be fine. Check the specs of the subs to make sure.

    3 JL 12W0's - no amp

    i used foam tape and wedged in to stop the moving parts from rattling. Also, seal any places where air can get through. And finally, no excuse for license plate rattles

    speaker vibration help needed..

    put it directly behind the speaker. Also try dynomating around the door opening mechanism. You can also seal off anywhere air can get out or anything with moving parts. That should stop your rattling.

    Question on a Good Amp for my 6x8's

    hey man, here's what i would do: No need for an amp with that setup if you get a good set of components. I suggest infinity kappa 6x8 comps. if you do amp: i suggest an audiobahn amp... cheap and VERY GOOD (dont hate abahn makes good amps too) the kappa tweeters are really bright and...

    Quick Question About Subs

    did u break the subs in before u pushed them? Unless ur overpowering them... i dont see how they would wear out like that.. especially JL subs. They shouldn't wear out that easily.

    Do I have a ground loop problem?

    yah, if your ground is grounded to a screw with paint on it, or chassis paint, u will have to sand down the paint so its metal on metal. That's y your getting a pop when u turn it on/off.

    HELP!!! no audio after install

    i thinking one of ur harnesses is bad so the corrected wires do not match up with the right speaker wires. Only other thing i can think of is that u bought the wrong harness that goes into ur head unit? im really at a loss, this has never happened to me

    Do I have a ground loop problem?

    did yuo run your rca's on the other side of your power wire? That could be a problem with it picking up engine noise from your power wire. Also, i odnt think its a ground loop otherwise it either wouldnt turn on, or when you turned it on/off there would be a pop noise.
