Re: Sudden sharp pull to right around curves/turns

Mine was doing this exact thing 3 years ago - very disconcerting. I think it was the LCA on the passenger side that was changed. I'll check my records to verify

Re: Back Up Light Switch - manual transmission

This was one of the easiest repairs I ever did to this car, like literally less than a minute to change. Maybe I got a good one, I changed it 7 years ago and it's still going strong

Re: Blinded by headlights & yellow polarized driving glasses

Maybe its the brand I bought, but the yellow lenses are not helping at all here. What brand did you guys buy? I can't recall what I got, but they were from amazon and had a eagle on the package.

Re: 12vdc rig to drive water pump

Thanks BillR, in all honesty I haven't looked at the pulley yet - I was thinking it was a central nut but you are most likely correct. That would be a deal breaker. More me sitting here on a cold...

12vdc rig to drive water pump

Hey everyone - goofy question for the day - I have always had a rattling sound around 1700 to 2000 rpm under load and to determine if it was something in the serpentine belt array or timing chain...

Re: 97 SW2 Manual RPM's rev up while Hwy driving in 5th gear.

My original instrument cluster in mine would have the rpm's randomly jump a bit, I think it was the stepper motor getting stuck, or something slightly jamming the needle. I swapped out clusters for...

Re: Spam on the tech thread

I'm a luddite when it comes to these things, but if a new user joins up, does someone (like Charlie) need to review and approve or is it an automated process? I'm guessing automated (or this spammer...

Re: Missing 94 SL found in Lake with deceased driver

That's creepy AF. Imagine being a homeowner right adjacent to where the car was...and finding out you've been living next to a body all these years. Jeez

Re: Saturn SL2 oil changed 2 months ago but dipstick says overfull.

Generally people can run above the full line in Saturns, I think between the first 2 letters is OK.

Was the car level when you checked it?

Re: Lawnmower Burning Oil

If the advice on what to check doesn't pan out, just keep using it and adding oil. I have a 27 year old push lawn mower that goes through oil like crazy, but it keeps running strong and starts first...
