stretched timing belt? by [email protected]
A friend of mine has an Astra. It came up with error code P14 (exhaust cam advanced). I replaced the camshaft control solenoid, and it was okay for a short while. But then started losing power, stalling and throwing more error codes. So she took it to a dealer workshop. Their diagnosis was...

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...

Screwdriver bits by Tom Del Rosso[_5_]
I just twisted a torx bit into a spiral trying to remove a rusted screw, then used a Dremel to cut a slot across the top and took it out with a flat screwdriver. The screwdriver didn't bend at all. None of the bits I ever saw are made of hardened steel like a single-piece screwdriver. Does...

1988 Crown Victoria: Slipping in Overdrive by PastTense
I have a 1988 Crown Victoria with a 5.0 engine--with 110,000 miles on it. A few days ago when I stopped the car wouldn't go into reverse. After a while of shifting through gears, shutting the car off, restarting reverse suddenly started working again. I drove it 20 miles to my mechanic. He found...

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.

Can you teach me more about lug bolts & related tire tools? by ultred ragnusen
Can you teach me more about lug bolts & related tire tools on this vehicle whose tires I rotated today and which I plan on rotating every 4K miles (6K km). First question is what is the practical difference between these three 21mm (13/16ths) "sockets" for the lug bolts on the car I was working on...

93 Ford Explorer Stalls While Driving by [email protected]
I have a 1993 Ford Explorer with a 4.0 L that started stalling while driving about six month ago. It shuts off like someone turned the key. Originally you could push in the clutch and immediately restart it without a problem. The occurrence is very random and there is never anything common...

compression fittings on brake lines by Nate Nagel[_2_]
Does anyone have a link to any law or standard that allows or prohibits their use? Was having a discussion with a mechanic yesterday and the wrench was saying that it was easier to use a compression fitting than double flaring and he didn't have a problem using them; my position was that if I...

"Power" mirror question by Percival P. Cassidy[_2_]
I bought on eBay a mirror for my '02 300M that was described as a "power" mirror that "fits" the 300M and some other Chrysler Corp. models. Now I find that it does not have the heat and memory (auto-tilt-down-in-reverse) features. The cable has only 5 conductors instead of the 9 in the...

would brake fail cause limp-home mode? by [email protected]
I was perusing a dashboard wiring diagram for my jalopy, and noticed that the brake fail lamp connects not only to the master cylinder switch and lamp check relay, but also to the ECU. Would this be so that the ECU would limit the speed of the car if brakes died?
