Volvo 240 main FI relay wiring? by [email protected]
OK.... it's an intermittent fault so the mechanic will NEVER find it. I of course suspect the main relay (replaced once, like 10 years ago). So... thought I'd wire in a switch across the terminals which I could use to bypass it when it is being uncooperative, and either prove or disprove the relay...

How long can a popping CV joint last? by [email protected]
I have been driving with a bad inner cv joint for about a year now. It doesn't rattle when you turn it vibrates when accelarating when going uphill. (Not wheel allignment). Obviously i use it in town only and i dont go fast. I've done about 10.000 km. I mean to fix it next month.

Do we really need to use "dri gas" anymore? by [email protected]
Years ago it was common to put a can of "dri gas" into the tank with each fill up to absorb any water that might have gotten into the fuel. After awhile we were told that the dri gas was added at the refinery to prevent problems in the delivery trucks and so it as not needed anymore. Now with the...

Wheel bolt pattern... by Phil Kangas[_2_]
Is the lug bolt pattern for a '03 Buick Century the same as the lug bolt pattern for a '05 Buick LaCrosse? The '03 has 15" wheels, the '05 has 16" wheels. I don't have access to the LaCrosse yet to measure it. My gut says no they won't fit but I'm asking anyway. phil k.
