1995 Vortec V6 4.3 Spider Injector HELP PLEASE ANYTHING APPRECIATED by [email protected]
My 95 S10 V6 pickup was running great. On day it lost power and MPG dropped off. I searched online and found the most likely cause was a bad nut kit or spider injector. I am a decent shade-tree mechanic with years of experience. I pulled the intake and indeed my nut kit was bad. I figured while...

How hard is it to replace a clutch in a 5-speed manual transmission? by Chaya Eve
How hard is it to replace a clutch in a 5-speed manual transmission? I have never done it, but it's generally cheaper to buy the tools and do it yourself than to pay someone else. Plus you generally get better parts. I've never done a clutch. This is a Toyota 4Runner 1998 2WD with the W59...

Making new keys for a 2005 Toyota by micky
I get conflicting stories about making additional keys for my 2005 Toyota. The Amazon page that sells keyblanks says I can't do it myself, need a locksmith or dealer. But googling for instructions, I found them, which I can look for and post if it would help here. And that's pretty surprising...

I have never changed transmission fluid before so below is my DIY which I post for critique so that I can learn how to do a better job next time. Also I ask how to tell why the clutch pedal "feels weird" in that it engages all at once and not slowly like I would think it would. Here's my first...

Correct VIN? by micky
Looking to buy a car, check the VIN on carfax, and the repair history there conflicts with the seller's story about where the car has been. So maybe I copied the VIN wrong, probably just one digit, but the make and model of the car that carfax reports is the same as the one I'm looking at. Does...

How do you know who made your O2 sensor? by micky
How do you know who made your O2 sensor? Both the car I'm getting rid of and most likely the car I'm buying need O2 sensors. One video I saw said it was important to get the same brand as original because other brands might not communicate well with the computer. But he didn't say how to find...

Asymmetrical Tire Question, Please by Bob[_53_]
Hello, Think I have a decent understanding of asymmetrical tires, and how they must carefully be mounted with the appropriate (as marked) side outwards. Are asymmetrical tires ever (also) marked with a directional arrow, as a normal directional tires would be ? Or, is one or the other ?
