what lateral g-force can old cars achieve? by [email protected]
A modern vanilla sedan can do 0.9 g, maybe more with good tyres. I saw a video on Youtube of some guy fitting a triangulated 4-link suspension to some chrome-bumper car, and managed to get 0.52 g on cornering, which seems rather poor. Must have had **** tyres. Sorry, I haven't been able to find it...

what's the condenser for on a mechanical voltage regulator? by [email protected]
Just tried my '66 GTO's mechanical voltage regulator on my friend's '69 Firebird and it started charging his battery again. Even though he had bought a new voltage regulator a month or so ago. (And then an alternator.) His does not have the condenser installed on the voltage regulator like mine...

Emissions test failure - no OBDII communication by Mark[_27_]
I have a '97 Lexus ES300 (131K miles). My Connecticut Emissions test failed today due to no OBDII communication. The guy said he couldn't get a reading. He suggested it could be as simple as a blown fuse or as complex as the computer itself. I did some search on google and various forums. It was...

Advice for stripped threads upstream oxygen sensor exhaust manifold by Arlen Holder
Car is just bought by a kid just learning to drive (he's 16). 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer ES Neighbors asked me to teach him how to replace the oxygen sensor (due to emissions code). The threads were stripped and "filled" with some kind of hardened "metal paste". The new part is a Denso 234-4739...

Opinions on this suspected VW dealer repair ripoff by [email protected]
Posted by a Facebook friend. I have general shadetree mech awareness but have never specifically worked on a VW. Whaddya think? Is there any way the bearings could be so shot they'd impact the brakes and there wouldn't be obvious symptoms and a competent tech wouldn't realize it when working on...

how does the map get into the radio? by micky
In a new car radio with GPS, how does the map get into the radio? Does it receive cellular data, wifi, or come already installed? What if you want to install the next year's version? My current 2005 toyota has a map on DVD, and it's not got all the roads, even the ones that existed then. ...
