I usually just buy whatever the used tire store has, but I think he had trouble finding the size I need last time, so I looked online. This is for a 2005 Toyotal Solara SLE convertible. The current tire is 215/55R17, as recommended by the maker. Questions come to mind: 1) I once had 2...

###TIMING BELT CONSPIRACY THEORY### by [email protected]
Just my rotten luck: Back in summer of 2003, had a local independent change out my 1996 Ford Contour(Mondeo) belt, low 60,000s. He had the car for three days, because he did all the work himself. Second day, got a phone call from this guy: "Hey look, sorry this timing belt is taking longer than...

What's the tale of ceramic brakes? by [email protected]
I'm not familiar with ceramic brakes, but they come with a lifetime warranty. Are they really that good? Do they threaten any other brake system components? Do they really last forever? Any informed comments appreciated.

###TIMING BELT CONSPIRACY THEORY### by [email protected]
Ive been in the car trade for 25 years and never ever handled a timing belt related issue. Mechanics always say its the problem and it isn't. They charge you $1000 for a $25 belt. Cant trust any mechanic.

'Salvage' titles by The Real Bev[_5_]
Is there any reason to ever buy a salvaged car for anything but a throwaway price? I'm talking about "normal" people here, not the Roadkill Garage guys... Two friends, two disasters. One friend had invested a lot in racing parts before the Mustang broke in half. The other was given the car...

What actually happened with the parking brake? by delvon daily
A few weeks ago I accidentally left the parking brake on for a 25 mile drive, highway in the middle with about five miles on each end that were side roads. On the last five to seven miles, the brakes went to the floor when I first pressed them, and that's the first time I knew there was a...

Chevrolet 428?? by [email protected]
Yes it was in the Bonneville. You could get a dealer option/install for your Firebird, the Formula 400 cars in 68 and I think in 69 as well. I've seen a 68 Formula Firebird with a 428 Ram Air 4 speed at a car show and the owner told me that it was installed by the dealer.

ECU programming by Randall Shimizu
i bought a used ECU for my vehicle. I am considering flashing the ECU myself. I noticed that there is some Chinese companies that are selling a USB cable. I already have one. So can I use openecu software or do I need to purchase a Tactrix openport cable.
