Mopar Action magazine engineering guru Rick Ehrenberg answers your Mopar tech and restoration questions each week. You might not get the answer you were expecting, but if you already read Mopar Action magazine then you probably already know that’s likely to happen.
If you’re not quite ready to send Rick a note via their online form, there is a plethora of answered questions to research first. Mopar Action Online says, “even if you don’t find what you need, you are guaranteed to pick up some useful information” from their massive Mopar Action Q&A Tech reference library. We’d like to also add “or at least you’ll be entertained.”

RockAuto, LLC was founded in Madison, Wisconsin in 1999 by the Taylor family. Their engineering background, passion for old cars, and desire to liberate information hidden behind the auto parts store counter led the Taylors to start RockAuto. Over the years, the company and its selection of parts have steadily grown. Millions of parts orders have been successfully delivered to RockAuto customers. RockAuto ships thousands of auto parts from over 300 manufacturers to customers on every continent except Antarctica-including APO/FPO addresses. The RockAuto catalog is updated daily with mechanical parts like brake pads and shock absorbers, body parts like bumpers and mirrors, interior trim like door handles and carpets, and major assemblies like steering gears, CV axles, and complete transmissions. There are no mechanics on staff (RockAuto is a store, not a repair shop) but service manuals are available to help customers learn how to perform a repair. The RockAuto catalog is expanding constantly. Someday, it may be possible to build an entire car using parts from RockAuto!
