Re: What can i update my radio with

I really don't like that the clock won't stay on top, even when the unit is turned off, so I'll be adding an auxiliary clock at some point. Odd oversight on their part and my biggest complaint.

Re: Fumes leak into cabin

Ah, a clearer picture emerges :)

On the driver side, there are a...

Re: What can i update my radio with

How good are you with a soldering iron?

If you want to go cheap, $14 plus tax at WalMart gets you the XO Vision XD107BT Car Stereo MP3/FM Receiver with Bluetooth
Same price on Amazon....

Re: Brakes/ oil pan gasket ?

First, I want to say your leak is probably not the oil pan. oil leaks are almost never the oil pan but with two exceptions:
1) Pan is rusted through or you hit something that gouged/tore the pan...

Re: Need OEM radio 2nd gen

Re: Pathetic headlights fixed............

It might be the type of paint.

Re: Coolant light on, collant tank full.

Just checking.

My fluid was between the lines, too (just slightly above the MIN-Cold line) but the light started coming on when it got cold out. I currently keep the car at the MAX-cold line

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

Can't speak to that particular line, but I had set of Kelly tires on a Ford Taurus years ago, and I thought they were great tires. Good wearing, good traction.
