I also have a 05 Rally and am a female (I assume the name Sara makes you a female). I've had mine for a year and a half and just recently had a head gasket problem, too. Fortunately, it seems it was minor enough that a thorough treatment of Blue Devil has solved the problem. My husband thinks they are the ugliest car ever, but I was still determined to buy it. My research showed the Aztek actually rated higher in reliability than most all of the popular cars or the same era/value: Toyotas, Nissans, etc.  I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Look for the camping (tent/air mattress) accessory to make it even more fun.

Unfortunately, there are not too many active members on this forum any more, but there is still a lot of great information here. If you have a question/problem, reach out. Someone will catch it.

Hi everyone I'm Sara. Just bought an 05 Aztek rally about 2 weeks ago. 219k miles. Had a wreck was looking for another  car and even after being told this poor girl had a cracked head. We had never even heard of an Aztek. I took a night and did some research and I swear the more I saw people hating on it the more I had to have it. Now I have fixed the real problem bad head gaskets. One was so bad I thought it was just not even there. But the rest of the block, cylinders, heads, pistons, EVERYTHING, aside from some thin build up, immaculate. I'll be done by Wednesday, we can't wait to see what she can do!

This links to a screenshot of the Photobucket thumbnails for the photos that were once displayed in this great post.
(I had no luck embedding the screenshot. I hope a link to pasteboard is okay.)

I found a brand new in box set of Boston Pro60 se component speakers for $90! I installed those into the doors and used the passive crossovers.
I used Knukonceptz for my wiring, 16 gauge for all the speakers and nice RCAs and aux cord.

Moved the Kappa perfect woofers to the rear doors

Sound deadened all the doors and the rear floor, ran the RCAs down the center console and cleaned while I was under there.
Insulated the floor with closed cell foam as well, and sound deadened the rear quarter panels.

I decided to go with my Zapco AG1000 amp for the JL 12w7-3 sub, and I got lucky and found a JL w7 sealed box for $80!!

Running the Xtant 404m for the speakers, but the left front channel is intermitttent so I'm going to use my Precision Power a404 and art spacer with end links instead.  Matching white ftw!

Currently building an amp rack and enclosure for the back and finding a way to secure it all to the floor. Thieves will have no clue how to get it out.

Side note, I had my front window smashed so I had to source a window from the junkyard. Apparently there was only one new piece of glass available.

I went with the Pioneer AVH2300NEX double din touchscreen unit. I used a metra install kit and the door chime module which works fine.
I'm also using a dvd bypass wire from amazon.

I had to get creative with the rear doors.. Wiring this extra insulated 16 gauge wire was tough. I had to notch out one of the tabs to make room and it's all flush and seals properly.

Used Second skin damplifier pro for the doors, and Noico for the floor.

Been a long time since I visited the site.
  I hate to do it but I am selling my old buddy after 17 years.  I've put a lot of money into it, but considering, it's still in good shape and as beautiful as ever with only 112,000 miles. CarFax shows regular oil changes, maintenance and repairs. Tires are about a year old. Leather seats & bench are still in good shape.  Tow pkg. A few things iffy- gas gauge is erratic under 1/2 tank;  AC leaks and needs recharging every so many months (but I live on the PNW central coast so it really hasn't affected me too often), Needs an oxygen sensor, a rattle at 25-30 mph when rounding a long curve (most always in the same two locations in my town).  I hit a deer a few years ago on the front drivers side and it show that it's been reconstructed on the title, but that never affected it's driveability.  Alignment is straight- Still drives as nicely as when new.
  I'm almost convincing myself to sell my new car and keep the Aztek. lol  
$2100.  I'll post some pics after I clean it up.

I have a 2003 tek and I recently got a pioneer double din stereo. I wired everything up and got it to turn on, but it won't play music. Also it gives a Security warning on the HUD and won't let me shift out of park. I eventually was able to shift after trying to shift immediately shifting after turning the key. But then it got even worse. I could see how fast i was going on the dial or the Heads up. Also my traction control wasn't on and abs was off. I didn't think this all could be from my radio, but when i put my old one back in sure enough everything worked fine. SO confused and frustrated, any thoughts will help, thanks.

The machinist said my heads looked great-very minimal warpage although he did mill them a little.  Had the stem seals installed too, he said the valves and sealing surfaces looked great, also passed a vacuum test with flying colors.

http://www.rockauto.com/info/314/15823115_Primary__ra_p.jpg is not available at rock auto but a google search of the part #  got me this

https://www.tonkinonlineparts.com/showAssembly.aspx?ukey_assembly=824174&ukey_make=1084  that shows the same brake line part number ( and a whole lot more) but no longer available. You can try and give them a call and they may be able to give you an alternate number


If you are looking for the brake lines / hoses to the drums etc rock auto has them listed under hydraulic hoses.

A lot of parts are interchangeable between the Rendezvous and Aztek. I don't want to say they all are but there are a lot of common parts
