I posted this already, and experience tells me both this and the previous one will probably show up, but it's still strange that the first one hasn't showen up on my computer in about 3 hours. In alt.home.repair, on 21 Aug 2018 10:56:52 -0400, (Scott Dorsey) wrote: You seem to...

what lateral g-force can old cars achieve? by [email protected]
A modern vanilla sedan can do 0.9 g, maybe more with good tyres. I saw a video on Youtube of some guy fitting a triangulated 4-link suspension to some chrome-bumper car, and managed to get 0.52 g on cornering, which seems rather poor. Must have had **** tyres. Sorry, I haven't been able to find it...

what's the condenser for on a mechanical voltage regulator? by [email protected]
Just tried my '66 GTO's mechanical voltage regulator on my friend's '69 Firebird and it started charging his battery again. Even though he had bought a new voltage regulator a month or so ago. (And then an alternator.) His does not have the condenser installed on the voltage regulator like mine...

ignition hard to turn by Tim R
It's an older Chevy. Occasionally the key didn't want to turn, but enough jiggling and I could get it to start. Now it's every time, and I'm never sure I'll get it. Would spraying lubricant into the keyhole help, or make it worse?

How to refill a leaking Sam's club "Michelin" floor jack by Comboverfish
Way back when, in one or more newsgroups, I suggested the blue 3.5 ton quick rise jack as sold by Sam's Club, to those who were looking for a cheap, functional, and strong floor jack for home use. I wanted to offer some tips I recently discovered when confronted with the problem of fixing or...

Emissions test failure - no OBDII communication by Mark[_27_]
I have a '97 Lexus ES300 (131K miles). My Connecticut Emissions test failed today due to no OBDII communication. The guy said he couldn't get a reading. He suggested it could be as simple as a blown fuse or as complex as the computer itself. I did some search on google and various forums. It was...

Advice for stripped threads upstream oxygen sensor exhaust manifold by Arlen Holder
Car is just bought by a kid just learning to drive (he's 16). 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer ES Neighbors asked me to teach him how to replace the oxygen sensor (due to emissions code). The threads were stripped and "filled" with some kind of hardened "metal paste". The new part is a Denso 234-4739...

Why can't people figure out warp versus runout versus disc thickness variation by Arlen Holder
Why, for Christs' sake, can't people figure out the difference in the English language between warp versus runout or disc thickness variation? There has been a perennial argument since the 70's when someone got the notion that brake rotor (aka disc) "warp" is the same as "dtv" (which it's not),...

Opinions on this suspected VW dealer repair ripoff by [email protected]
Posted by a Facebook friend. I have general shadetree mech awareness but have never specifically worked on a VW. Whaddya think? Is there any way the bearings could be so shot they'd impact the brakes and there wouldn't be obvious symptoms and a competent tech wouldn't realize it when working on...

reman vendor quality? by [email protected]
(In particular, I need a rack for my Cobalt.) Is there any sort of consensus on whether different reman companies (Cardone, AAE, BAP, Delco ...) have good or bad reps? For my rack, I find them all in the $150-175 (+ core) price range at RockAuto , but Cardone has what appears to be the same part...

In a new car radio with GPS, how does the map get into the radio? Does it receive cellular data, wifi, or come already installed? What if you want to install the next year's version? My current 2005 toyota has a map on DVD, and it's not got all the roads, even the ones that existed then. ...
