Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

You will never convince some people of the evolution of animals and/or technology. :D

There are lots of 'experts' out there who are given that title simply by default that nobody is around to...

Re: Need a battery

Yes, this is standard procedure - not just AAA. I had a Duralast go out after just 26 months. I went to Autozone and had it replaced free (with AAA, they come to you - THAT is the big bonus). I...

Re: Timing belt

As mentioned, if engine oil was properly maintained, the chain should last the life of the engine. Replace only at time of rebuild. I sold my car with nearly 224K and engine still purred - original...

Re: Thermostat Issue?

LET IT GO. The ONLY reason I replaced mine (when the car was about 7 years old) was because I was getting a code (can't pass inspection). Even then, I replaced it with one from Autozone (185...

Re: Suggestions on Oil

I never used synthetic. Always the cheapest available. OCI between 3K and 5K . As stated, keep an eye on it as it WILL burn oil even though you may not notice. You MAY be babying it right now and...

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Have you ever tried to do that? A lot of work and rarely ever work/last. Replacements are relatively cheap and easy to install.

Re: Transmission fluid disappearing?

The filter for the automatic transmission needs to be put on TIGHT. It is not the same as the oil filter. People have a tendency to use the same pressure to tighten as the oil filter, which is not...

Re: Hard to abandon a car that has been so good to me!

Yes, carrying two or three quarts of oil and checking it every morning when you are traveling is one of those annoying 'little' things. Yes, I prefer to drive around the country for my vacations. I...

Re: Hard to abandon a car that has been so good to me!

Well, I abandoned mine on September 30. It was time. Sure, I still COULD have gotten another 10 years out of her, but why? It had all the minor issues that were starting to be annoying. Leaking...

Re: no start urgent

So far you've gone through the same type of troubleshooting that I went through when my starter was beginning to go a few years ago. My mom saw me struggling for 10 minutes with the car on ramps and...

Re: lug nut covers

I got mine from Rock Auto several years ago. They are a little stiffer than the originals but otherwise worked fine.

Re: Sales Call Interaction

The guy was with his son. They had a list of cars on a paper that they were going through. I happen to be number five on the list of 8 or 9. The father liked it right away, but was hesitant only...

Re: Sales Call Interaction

SOLD! To a man for his son. He knew a good deal when he saw it. He didn't like the fact that he was going to have to teach his kid how to drive a stick, but he couldn't pass it up.

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

You have a PLAN. Amazing how people with plans (and goals) tend to do much better in life than those without.

My plan is to buy three more NEW cars in my life for the following model years.

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Scheduled a meeting to sell the car for 10:00 Saturday morning. They talk a good talk (former Saturn SC2 owner who lost their car to the flood). We'll see if they show up with the $$$$$$. :D

Re: Considering re-ring...

Original 2002 SL2 owner here. I'm pretty sure he meant not burning at all. A new (probably rebuilt as well) s-series engine does not burn oil the first 100K (at least mine didn't). When I first...

Re: Battery date-code

Take a picture? I thought all batteries were now sold with date stickers on them, but to me that seems so easy to remove and replace with another (newer) sticker.

You might be surprised. After the great flood here, you would think that people would be in desperate need of some transportation, but cars are super available and easy to find here. One coworker...

Re: She Survived

Until the storm, the area was flooded with cars (pun intended). In my area, that price is not bad, but not great. Maybe a low price now that so many cars have met an early death here, but it is...

Re: She Survived

I received one phone call last night (All I've done is put a 4 SALE sign on the window). $1,400 - everything works, original owner. He doesn't drive a stick, but his wife does. Said he would get...
