Re: Dashboard Warning -Exclamation Point (on the RPM meter?)

You're describing a traction control reaction to slipping wheels if you have abs. While many cannot understand this, traction control is the opposite of abs. Braking on slippery surfaces makes one or...

Re: Water leakage into my trunk

If you sealed the suspected area and water still leaks in then look elsewhere. The leak is coming in somewhere else. There's no point in beating a dead horse unless the sealant doesn't work. It works...

Re: Water leakage into my trunk

Re: No start. No spark

With a new ignition system, new spark plugs and a flooded engine, the engine may still be flooded. Even new plugs will drown in fuel, shorting out spark. Every year there's a member or two reporting...
