  9. Too late to switch to synthetic?

    General Maintenance and Detailing Forum
    Ok, so I bought a 2007 Caliber SXT, and it has 81,500 miles on it. The previous owner doesn't know if he is running synthetic or conventional, but he said he changed the oil every 5,000 miles.

  13. Stroker Motor

    Dodge Caliber Performance Mods - Engine - SXT, SE
    I noticed the 1.8 and 2.0 have the same bore and the 2.0 just has a longer stroke... I may sound crazy, but i think you could stroke the 1.8 to a 2.0 pretty easily (with enough money), its just the electronics i wouldn't know how to work out... with a larger bore and long stroke its a 2.4... I...

    Dodge Caliber Mechanical Problems and Questions
    I just purchased a 2010 Dodge Caliber. I was under the hood the other day and noticed that the wiring harness for the motor is unprotected near the fuel rail for the injectors and the wires to the injectors themselves look unprotected.

    General Maintenance and Detailing Forum

    I have an automatic 07 Caliber. It just hit 10,000. The engine sounds like it is going to explode. This is the only way I can explain it. It also sounds like a wet blanket in the dryer as the blanket hits the bottom of the dryer. It seems as though it can't turn over. The faster I drive...
