trouble codes: P0440 vs P0455 by George[_23_]
(04 Cavalier) I'm getting P0455. New gas cap didn't help, & I didn't see anything flagrant on visual inspection. Reading about the EVAP codes, it seems that P0455 means a "large leak", while P0440 means the self-test can't reach its target tank vacuum ... which I'd think would also imply a...

What does the EHSR mean for my alternator bearing rebuild by Misha
I'm planning on rebuilding my Bosch 120 amp alternator. One of the two bearings is a 6304 EHSR 2RS1 c3 - 17x52x17mm I know the 2RS means two rubber shields. And the 6304 is the size. While the C3 is the radial clearance. But what does the EHSR indicate?

I think CNN must be hiring Amish kids on Rumspringa for its motorsports writers. That's really the only way you could explain the rich, lavish ignorance of how cars work as demonstrated in this article about turbo engines returning to F1. The basic facts are there — F1 regulations are calling...

My wife has a friend who has been doing brick paving for about 20 years. I asked him why you see so many brick driveways that have spread out after a few years, was this due to the soil or just shoddy workmanship? I mentioned that Indianapolis racetrack was once brick paved, and it stood up to the...

We have a 2003 Chevy Tahoe with a 5.3 V8 engine. We recently got a check engine light for a knock sensor. The message on the scanner was "Knock sensor reading low voltage". I have read about this problem a bit and it seems like the harness inside the engine, rather than the sensor itself usually...

Organize Sockets by [email protected]
What is the best way to organize about 100 sockets (1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" drives) in the 20" toolbox I carry in my car? (The Lisle plastic trays take up so much room in my toolbox that there's little room for my other tools).
