Replacing 17" Stock Wheels With 16" Stock - Any Negative Effect? by john
My '03 Toyota Matrix XR has 17" stock wheels, which apparently came with its "Sports Package" (I bought the car slightly used from someone). I want to replace the wheels with 16" stock wheels, which is the original wheel size, because I want tires that are supposed to be especially quiet that come...

new struts for corolla? by Usual Suspect
What do I need to know before getting new struts for my corolla? Do I need both rear struts if only one seems to be bad (cupping)? Do I need 4-wheel alignment to be done afterwards? Would you trust Goodyear to do this kind of job if you were me?

89 Camry - Temperature gauge spikes for a minute and then goes back down by mino
So about a year ago the temperature gauge on my dash started spiking up and then would go down real quick. Sometimes it stays up for a while and sometimes it's just up for a quick second. Sometimes it just jumps a little and sometimes it goes all the way into the red. It happens in cold and hot...

1997 Mercury Marquis wiper arm by ksfair
Can anyone tell me how to replace the wiper arm, drivers side , on a 97 Marquis? There is a weird little gadget with a tab near the attachment point, but I can't see how it works. Better yet, any ideas on increasing the spring pressure on this arm to eliminate a smear?

Geo Metro R wheel bearings keep failing by JOHN D
I've replaced wheel bearings on the same rear wheel about 5 times. They only last a few weeks to a few months. The first failure spun in the hub so I had to replace the drum/hub. The spindle looks ok. The last time I got another used hub, first one was new. I was thinking that some internal...

Question about reading computer codes on 89 Honda Accord by Dan Ritter
I know that some cars have a way of getting a computer code reading from doing something with the ignition and counting the blinking lights. Is there such a thing for an 89 Honda Accord SEI? I think one of my sensors has bit the bullet. In case someone has another idea what could be causing this...

Idle problem after battery change by Bill
I changed the battery in my highly maintained 94 Lumina 3.1 after I noticed that it was cranking slow on cold days. It had been running perfect with a rock solid 800 rpm idle. I had to remove the air box and connector to the airbox hose to get the battery out. Now that I have this simple task...

Front suspension noise in Saturn. by kaasman
We just test drove a '95 Saturn SL2 4 door. Every time we drove it over a speedbump the front suspension made what I can only discribe as a crunching sound. Any ideas what that could have been? Peter.

gas guzzling and no leaks by [email protected]
Hello My 1991 Cutlass goes through gas like crazy lately with no smell of gas or apparent leaks. I recently replaced the exhaust manifold and the spring bolts do not form a perfect seal. Could this be tricking the computer into running a super rich mixture. I have noticed this problem a lot more...

Vacuum brake bleeding by Peter
I was trying to bleed my 95 Cherokee brakes, but the fluid hardly comes out. I thought of vacuum bleeding, but I wonder how much vacuum do I need. I don't have a pump, but can I use my household vacuum cleaner as suction source? I can take a big jam jar, drill 2 holes on the lid to put in...

'91 Mazda 626 2.2 not turbo. On especially cold mornings, when I first start out, the brake pedal is hard as a brick and very high, like the vacuum assist isn't working. It stays that way for 100 - 200 yards and two or three uses of the brake, then it goes to normal. Vacuum connection from...

Gutting catalytic converter by Mark W
Is the gas flow through a factory converter better with, or without, the honeycomb filling? Some people say it's good to remove all or part of the insides, others say that will make the gases stall in the chamber. But some cars have an expansion chamber as a silencer anyway, don't they?
