de-aeration hose.

If you are replacing just take the old one down to Napa and get 50 inches of Gates hose.

Re: S-Series Motor Mounts - Optimized order of replacement

It's true about the automatic transmission mounts. They are more difficult. A lot more difficult. Though if I recall correctly, there is a trick to it, which I infer because it wasn't going in,...

Re: Which rebuild kit to get SC2

What does it mean to "boil out" an engine block? Like literally put it in a big pot of boiling water?

Re: What's the " best" year S-series?

I'm a fan of the the gen1 SC2. I like the graceful swoop of the side panels. On the other hand, they have pop-up headlights which are prone to breaking.

I own both a 2001 and 2002 SC2. These are...

Thanks for the info guys!

Re: HELP! Can't get strut back on car!

If you have only one side of the car raised, you will be able to attach one strut, but maybe not the other because of the sway bar doing its job. So if you have only one side raised, raise both sides...

Re: What are the little plastic doohickeys that hold the electrical connectors to the

It didn't fail. Nothing wrong with the old one that I know of. But new ones are $20 from Standard. They are easier to replace with the starter out than in, so I preemptively replaced it.

it might work, kind of pricey...
