    (iagree)


    You need to see what kind of current your camera draws. most dash cams will pull about 500mA, give or take. That's enough to kill a battery overnight, especially if your battery is a...

    That's some very good info. To me, it sounds like a bad ECM. maybe a bad ground or power connection at the ECM

    When you turn the car on, the check engine light comes on as a self-test. This...

    The factory anti-theft alarm will prevent the starter from cranking at all, if equipped. If your starter is turning over, it's not the alarm. The alarm is just a starter interrupt system,...

    IMO I think they're both overpriced.

    Car #1 needs a timing belt, tires, and who knows what else. If you're not comfortable doing the timing belt yourself, you're looking $500-600 to get that...

    Yeah, I bought a 10 pack on ebay for 8 or 10 bucks and kept them in my glove box. I drove a little over 200 miles per day for a few years commuting to work every day, leaving early when it's dark...

    In that case, I think pcb is probably more on the right track. Check voltage with the car running. If it's more than 14.4-14.5 volts then the alternator needs to be replaced since it is internally...

    I may be mistaken, but I believe the high beams and low beams use the same relay. So if the relay was bad none of them would work. You could verify easily by checking with a meter or a test light...

    your best advice... take it out, tear it down and inspect/measure all the parts before you order anything. Then order anything that is out of spec. Otherwise you will end up halfway through and...

    Sounds like an alarm issue.

    Roll down the windows and lock the doors with the key fob. Wait 60 seconds, then reach inside the car through the window, lift the door lock plunger and open the...

    if the weldnuts are detached and lost, you can weld in any size nut you want.

    this is hands down the BEST way to fill a cooling system. No burping required, and you've completely filled the cooling system in a couple minutes as opposed to letting it idle with the heater on,...

    The first time always takes the most time. After you've done a timing belt or two (or two hundred...) it's not a big deal at all. Last timing belt I changed on my p5 only took me a couple hours...

    I still believe your timing was a tooth off on one of the cams. Enough to make it run bad but not enough that it wouldn't run. I've seen it happen more than once...

    Sorry, this post is like 700 pages long and I don't have the time to read the entire thing. Was just offering a suggestion :)

    check your radiator cap. Sometimes coolant problems can be simple cheap fixes.

    IF the spring is weak (or missing, they can deteriorate) and it will fill the reservoir until it overflows as you...

    Failed VSV's are quite common. IT's an old car and they go bad. Fortunately they're cheap and easy to replace.


    I'd start by doing a general tune-up. New spark plugs (use NGK plugs), air...

    If not, I like to keep a few pairs of needle-nose vise grips. Work great for stuff like that, if there's enough room for a dremel in there there's enough room for those!

    Mine had 270k when I sold it, and still ran like new. I checked compression at 260k when I changed the spark plugs "just because" and had 200-210psi on all 4 cylinders. Didn't leak or burn a drop...
