    i don't know if they gave you a copy of the TSB so i figured i'd post it for you




    did they give you an official quote? if so what did they say they had to do to remove the pump?
    i used to be a mechanic so i can give you some insight into the issue

    They didn't give me an official quote, just over the phone the guy said that he's never seen an oil pump go bad on the Chrysler Concorde just that sensor, and if it was that sensor total bill would be about $140.

    I'm assuming the $140 covers the diagnostic, then if it was the recall also the part & labor.

    get urself a DSATX for the best reliability and flexibility. Next i would recommend the opus, which is rock solid, but bulky, little configurability, and a stupid delay before start.

    OMFG, I thought it was my setup that causes the delay! Its good to know that I am not the only one. The delay is really annoying because if your paranoid like me, you figure something has gone wrong. I am actually doing research into another PSU just for that reason. Since I have to buy two M4-ATX for the 6 new computers, I may also swap out the OPUS. In fact I may call them and ask them about the delay. I noticed in the beginning there wasnt much delay when turning on. When I moved my PC on install 3, I figured it was the cable run that created the delay.

    Manual gauge shows the oil pump working just fine at idle - the oil switch isn't leaking - replaced it but it still flickered on. Looks like despite my car not matching the details in the TSB, it still applies. Tomorrow the piece will go in and I'll get my car back. Which I'm very happy about!

    good thing too, you just escaped a termite burn in your pocket, because to remove the pump the timing chain has to come out.

    Thursday May 21st:
    Either way, I needed to do some work on the Thin Client. Currently, if I needed to remove the 24pin Power Molex from the motherboard I had to remove the motherboard from the Thin Client. This was due to the metal pushing against the clip on the lead from the power supply. So I marked my lines and picked up some dremel bits from the hardware store and got to cutting. It works a lot better now, even though it might not look "clean". You can see how "before" it was pressing against the metal, and how "after" it has that nice extra leg room.



    Also, to show just how close the hard drive sits to the CPU fan blades, and what's holding it in place.

    I've considered the M4 many times, but looking around the forum, i've heard more than enough bad experience with the M4, that's why I dished out the extra cash i bought another DSATX for my brother's setup. The reason why the opus has a delay its probably a safety measure for all transient conditions to settle, but in my opinion any electrical system should be able to settle within 1sec.

    I see you're still using the laptop hard drive, i recalled somewhere that you say that your location could go down to -20*C? I think you might need to look into other options because that hard drive will certainly fail on you at those temperatures.

    I tried looking around but no other PSU is as powerful. OPUS customer service said that it is normal, its built into the firmware. Yea, i'll stay with OPUS, for the M4 though, as long as I can use the 12V and 5V rail to power the 6 units and some hubs and stuff. The shut down and start up will be controlled by the OPUS 320 via a relay.

    Well, -20*F, which according to Western Digital should be within the Non-Operating spec (-40F to 149F). I'd just have to wait for the car to warm up a bit before running it if it was a really cold night.

    Temperature
    Operating 32 F to 140 F
    Non-operating -40 F to 149 F
