Re: Low engine performance?

I know that you replaced the coil pack, but I wonder if there's a chance that it might be faulty? When I had a sensor go bad one time, the lack of performance appeared random or at least not regular....

Re: Low engine performance?

When this happened to me, it was the cam position sensor that triggered the engine light and resulted in low performance.

Tire pressure sensor (Help)

A few days ago I had new tires installed. The tire shop recommended a 'tire pressure sensor rebuild kit' for each sensor. The first tire and sensor they removed actually broke the sensor and I had...

Re: Front end noise - trouble diagnosing

I wound up just dropping it off at the dealership service department. I'm assuming they used OEM parts all around. It's possible that you may have the same issue. Check all the suspension parts...

Re: Front end noise - trouble diagnosing

A final (late) update to this issue:

Re: Spar Urethane Headlight restoration

Amazing job! Wow, they look completely brand new. Mine are starting to yellow and degrade from the top and moving downward. It's starting to bother me now and I want them fixed.

Funny to see that because I do the same thing! It's a perfect spot. My phone case is rubber and plastic and fits just right. What stereo system do you have? (Sorry if I missed it in your post.)
