Re: Starting problems on '94 SC1

The battery is only 1 year old and when I turned my lights on, they seemed bright. Next time it happens, I will try to tap the starter.

What happens if you kink/bend a fuel line during fuel filter installation?

Hey, I bent a fuel line over while replacing the filter...is this a big deal? You can see where it was bent...I'm thinking it might create a leak someday in the future?

Re: Engine replacement

How much oil are you using?...I would leave it alone unless you start burning more than 1qt every 1,000 miles.

Re: Long distance trip. Recomended oil weight?

Re: Car shakes during braking

Oh and I forgot to add that the brake pedal has to be pushed very far before it starts to slow the car down...it can actually be pushed all the way down without much effort.
