Re: WTF happened here?

It's only on there at, what, 160 ft. lbs? Might convince me to get around to getting an air compressor and impact wrench. I would think a 300 ftlb wrench would do it...but there I go thinking. ...

Re: WTF happened here?

Thank you Johnny. I'll get back to you after I take things apart and decide what I want to do. Just realized that I need to mess with the timing part too, which is going to be a pain with the crank...

Re: WTF happened here?

Might as well get one with a transmission attached. Take care of the leaky input shaft at the same time.

Re: WTF happened here?

OK. Would the cylinders or pistons have been damaged as a result? It would just be a matter of replacing the head, and not a complete rebuild, yes? Is there a recommended source for good heads? ...

Re: WTF happened here?

Yup. The head is definitely cracked. Didn't need to open the reservoir to see the oil sheen, it was in the coolant that oozed out. I couldn't get the cap off anyway to take a look. Insert...

Yeah...that's where my mind went as soon as I saw the light come on and the needle at the red. And when I pulled off the freeway. I'll know more in a couple hours when I bring her home. Just a...

Re: WTF happened here?

I used 1 gallon of full strength, 1 gallon of water, and topped off with 1 gallon of full strength.

The hose clamp, as far as I recall, is OK going to the reservoir. The gooey coolant was...

WTF happened here?

So...this just happened. I had been running prop. glycol through the coolant system for the last 5 years, and used that and the yellow universal in May when I replaced the water pump. Everything...

Re: water pump...pully bolt w/o impact?

TY OldNuc. I did manage to find the bolt with the aid of a yard rake :)

I tried leaving the belt on and the pulley just turned all the same. I did see richpin do it with a screwdriver after...

water pump...pully bolt w/o impact?

How the heck is one supposed to keep the pulley from turning while taking the bolts off without using a impact as shown in richpin's video?

I would search, but it looks like the search...

Still wiper motor?

I remember a few years ago that possessed wiper arms were caused by the wiper motor. Is that still the agreed upon most likely cause of possessed wiper arms?

Re: front license plate bracket

Mine's been attached with a pair of 3" drywall screws and fender washers for the last 5 years (or so) without any issue...unless I get hit in the front and they puncture the radiator, but I'm pretty...

Re: Problem going downhill in 5th gear 2000 SL1 revisited

It still sounds like normal noise to me. They do that when using the engine to brake and running higher rpms while doing so.

Alex, love the signature.

Re: High idle on 2000 saturn Sl1 5 manual

Another thing you will want to look at/ask the previous car rental place about was if the intake manifold gasket was replaced. The original from the factory like to fold over right next to the first...

Re: 2300 rpm at 60 mph?

I have to agree that 2500 at 60 is a touch high, but not really unreasonable. 2500-ish is 70 for me, somewhere closer to 2000 is more like 60...but not really sure, don't spend too much time at 60. ...

Re: Axle/bearing play?

To verify the bearing, light the wheels off the ground, turn the wheel, and feel the spring. If you feel a vibration, the bearing is bad.

It's not as bad as some make it out to replace, and a...

Re: Axle/bearing play?

The CV joins will have some slack in them axially...the slop is so it can lengthen or shorten when turning. They should not have slop rotationally though.

Re: how to tell when struts are bad?

I thought suspension parts should be replaced in pairs?

What strut was it replaced with, quickstrut or other? Monroe's quickstruts seem to make noise for whatever reason.

Re: Brakes Randomly Sticking

Back when I had my Ranger, there was a little groove around the rotor that the pad would get stuck in when warm. Not sure if that's the problem you have here, but it sounds like almost the exact...
