Re: Bad alternator or something else?

IF THE LIGHTS did not go off then it is a meter/measuring problem and not grounds etc.

Re: Bad alternator or something else?

The output voltage sensing for alternator output is through the UHJB. If that 6v is actually correct the alternator should run up to full voltage/current output and it is not. There is a possibility...

Re: Bad alternator or something else?

Aftermarket overpriced junk tensioner is highly suspect, not the belt.

Re: Bad alternator or something else?

If it turns backwards relatively easily then the tensioner is highly suspect. The tensioner will be much easier to fix than a potential electrical issue.

Re: Bad alternator or something else?

The side terminal plug is what actually fully turns on the alternator. That wire or connector may be intermittent. The quick test is this: does the battery light come on when the key is on and engine...

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

Those pressures in the later higher pressure rated tires provide the same hoop stress on the tire as the 31-32 pis in a 35psi rated tire. Funny how that works.

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

MBR is not mistaken, he is completely correct. For the proof of the process just ask the google: https://www.google.com/search?q=tire+pressure+determination+non+standard+tire&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

Most tires in the sizes recommended for the S-Series are now rated for ~50psi MAX cold with the near identical max load ratings as the older tires. I seriously doubt that a person would intentionally...

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

Actually what MBR did was apply basic physics to adjusting pressure to set the tire for proper load handling. If you take the time to go to the tire manufacturers web site an look at the various max...

Re: Need a battery

All they want is the count to be correct, size does not matter. I use the dead 12v 8Ah gel cells out of the computer UPS, they are fine with those.

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

The door sticker is a RECOMMENDATION for a specific size, brand, tread pattern, and carcass construction tire. If the tire you fitted is not identical to the original tire that is referenced on the...

Re: Cracked head?

They are Torque to Yield bolts and they do tend to break when recycled. New ones will also snap right off if you do not follow the torquing procedure properly.

These are not V8 old tech iron...

Re: Driving long term on "bad" thermostat - temp sitting around 1/4 mark

Live data lies so stick a thermometer into the reservoir and see what the temperature reads. Get back into the right rear corner for the best indication.

Re: Cracked head?

This is true for most aftermarket parts. Makes things interesting. The timing set components are all precision products so usually the manufacturing is of a higher quality and tolerances are tighter....

Re: Replaced Wheel Bearing on "new" '02 SL1

If you want a quality part then buy the SKF kits as the hub should also be replaced and the final job verified in spec with a dial indicator after the axle nut is replaced and torqued.

Re: No compression Cylinder 2 - Options?

You can drop in a new valve and a set of seals or at least the seal for the replaced valve, hand lap and go. This actually works rather well. You can't reuse the seal.

Re: No compression Cylinder 2 - Options?

That is not a huge problem. It is a bit hot and the problem was probably a small insignificant exhaust leak in the 95 exhaust.

Re: Cracked head?

I would install a new timing set.

Re: Need a battery

This is standard warranty procedure. You do not get a new warranty with a warranty replacement item. There are a few exceptions but not many.
