brake pedal squeal by [email protected]
'07 Cobalt LS, 60K miles. Recently developed a 'rubber' squeal/squeak (as opposed to a 'metallic' one) when the brake pedal is depressed. Sound comes from under the dash. One URL says to replace the brake fluid. (Doesn't say why.) Other threads talk about possibly a leaking master cylinder. ...

How do USB players keep track of position. by micky
The devices that plug into the cigarette lighter and play sound from a USB drive through car radio speakers have the ability to remember where they left off, and, even when power is removed from them when the car is turned off, they restart from the start of the file or segment, often the start of...

Common Auto Body Problem by J.B. Wood[_2_]
Hello, all, especially those auto body work craftspersons. No matter how diligent one is, sooner or later, while parked next to someone you get one of those small (sometimes not so small) dents/dimples as a result of the other careless person's swinging vehicle door. These dimples stand out...

Throttle position sensor by Bob Nogueira

What are the pro's/cons of each? One pro for caps is that they are cheaper! The AVR ditty for my unit would cost another near-$400. The pro for AVR is, presumably, much tighter voltage regulation with load. But mebbe AVR has its limits ito ruggedness? The voltage swing on my genset is 250 -...

Warm daah before taking it apart? by micky
I have to remove the air vents above the radio in the middle of the dash tomorrow, on a 2005 Toyota. I tried today several times and the bezel or whatever bent without breaking, but the thing popped back where it was originally. I'm worried about cracking or breaking the plastic. Today was...

2010 Pontiac Vibe problem by Percival P. Cassidy[_2_]
Not my own car: posting for someone else. 2010 Vibe (mostly Toyota components) was running very rough and vibrating. "Trusted mechanic" said it's running on only two cylinders, it's not an ignition or valve or head problem, but something -- he can't figure out what without taking it apart, and...

Ford's "Easy Fuel" capless fuel filler? by CWLee
I just learned that the 2010 (and perhaps earlier) Ford Explorers, and other Ford models, have what Ford calls "Easy Fuel" capless fuel fillers. As near as I can tell, instead of unscrewing a cap, one inserts the gas pump nozzle into an opening which automatically moves aside for fueling, and...

I'm thinking of installing a Gromaudio device that, if your car radio has a CD changer input jack, allows for USB input, AUX input from a cellphone, and for another $50 Bluetooth use of the cellphone through the car speakers and an add-on microphone (in addition to the first $150). The most...
