Re: Window won't go up.

Not a bad idea at all, Russet. Eventually, the back window switch (that used to be the front window switch) will completely give out. Have a cheap replacement on hand is not such a bad idea. ...

Re: Window won't go up.

For the record, the whole unit slides right out. Just held in place with pressure tabs. Just pull in straight out. No tools needed!

Once out, there is a tab release to undo the cable, at the...

Re: Window won't go up.

If I wiggle the switch and change between up and down a few times it will suddenly kick in and go up. To be honest, I have no idea what the issue is. I assumed it was the switch because I don't...

Window won't go up.

Before I tear the car apart, I thought I might try replacing the switch for the driver's side window. The window goes down fine, but won't go back up. All the other windows are working fine and the...

Re: High RPM while shifting

Just got back from the shop. You guys nailed it. The converter was clogged.

Given the price differences, I had him throw on a universal converter. I also had the spark plugs replaced.

Re: High RPM while shifting

Would I have a check engine light on if it were plugged?

High RPM while shifting

My 2001 L200 (Automatic), seems to be struggling with shifting.

First gear, everything is fine. If I accelerate slowly, it switches into second gear somewhere just below 3000 RPMs. However, when...

Re: Rear End Dragging?

Oh, I should add that the "stuck" cable was on the driver's side of the car.

Re: Rear End Dragging?

Thanks for the responses, guys!

Well, The work I had done was only on the rear, passenger side. He replaced the spring and mount on just the one side? Not sure. It cost me $650 though.

Re: Key comes out when car is running

LOL!

Well thanks, fdryer! I just wanted to make sure this wasn't one of those things that progressively becomes an issue. In the end, it really doesn't bother me.

Key comes out when car is running

So, after dropping my wife off at work and my Daughter off at school, I parked the car and, in a sleepy haze, pulled the key out without shutting off the engine. Right away, the Service/Wrench light...

Re: Rear end noise when going over bumps

Mine does the exact same thing, only it seems to come from the front end. I'd describe the noise as similar to a train "clacking" as it moves over the tracks. That clunky, metallic sound like two...

Re: High Gas mileage LS2

If you figure it out, let us know.

I'm currently getting 18MPGs. For the life of me, I can't figure out why.

Re: L200 Creaking/Popping Frame

That sounds just like mine. I can't afford repairs unless they are dangerous to me and my family. I can live with the pinging/creaking noises.

Thanks for the responses, guys!

Re: L200 Creaking/Popping Frame

I will eventually have to bring it in to the mechanic, but I just wanted to check and see if there was a possibility it could be something dangerous.

Our L200 has recently started to make awful noises when you get in an out of it and also when the weight shifts while driving. It sounds a bit like a few springs being released (pinging) and lots of...

Re: Gas pouring out while filling

I never thought about the drain holes. I bet you that's what it was.

Certainly I'll know for certain the next time I fill up, at the usual place.

I stopped for gas this afternoon at a station I hadn't been to before. Right away, as I picked up the nozzle, I noticed that it looked shorter than usual. I figured, they wouldn't use a nozzle that...
