    Bypass leaking transmission cooler?

    Removing the radiator in the process of a timing chain replacement in my girlfriends 2001 Vitara, I managed to crack one of or both trans cooler nipples on the lower radiator tank. I have an external cooler on order, but would it be ok to loop the cooler lines together and bypass the cooler...

    No second gear in Chevy Metro

    Just bought a 2000 Chevy Metro that needs a lot of work but hits on all 3 and drives. I can put the trans in second and the shift itself feels good and solid but as soon as I let up on the clutch pedal it starts grinding. It sounds to me like the gear teeth are lunched, but I know there is not...

    New LSD, too much FM?

    Yesterday I installed a Yukon Duragrip in my '04 Yukon with the 8.6" 10 bolt. I used approximately 2.5Qt of 80/90wt gear oil and what I guessed to be 2oz (about half of a 4oz bottle.) I was surprised that the diff was quiet the first drive while turning in a circle at full lock both directions...

    I recently prurchased an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC DV6(1030us?) with a C2D T6400 and HD4500 (GMA 4500). I bought this for $60 with intentions  of playing vanilla WOW. I have ordered a C2D T9600, 120Gb SSD, and 8Gb of RAM. What I didn't initially think about was graphics driver. Windows 10...

    Have a 1/2" hole, what pipe thread size

    Helping a friend rebuild an NV3500 in his 5.2L Dakota. We want to replace the shift rail detent plug with a tapered pipe plug rather than the interference fit one. The bore is 1/2" and I would like to know what size pipe tap would work without any more drilling/reaming? This is the second time...

    Picked up a new(ish) Camaro today.

    I took my 1996 Maxima in today and got $700 trade in on a 2015 V6 6 speed Camaro. It was $16,889 with 11,000 miles. I'm loving this car and look forward to maintaining it. I can confirm that at least this V6 6 speed has LSD if anyone is wondering. And yes, the "fun button" works well. <a...

    Just got back from Xmas road trip. Guess MPG.

Yup, I got 36.98MPG @80MPH on I5 using cruise control and only using the brakes when I had to slow for impeding traffic. This was in my 20 year old Maxima with...

    New direction with oil changes

    So I have been running dino oil and the cheapest decent filters I can buy. For the last seven or eight years I have been running Napa Pro Select and Super Tech filters with 5W30 Supertech oil. I now live 25 more miles (50mi) away from Walmart, and I bike to work every time I can. My car can sit...

    Good ADBV filter?

    I recently moved into an apartment just a couple miles from work and have been bicycling to almost everyday. I went from 250 miles a week to maybe 40.

    CB install '98 F250ld

    After i settled on rebuilding the transmission and keeping my truck, I decided to install my modded Cobra 148GTL and 100W Silverado linear amp in the pickup. I went to True Value and picked up two Simpson Strong Tie TP37 7X3" plates. I bent a 90* at one end making sure they were mirror images...

    On my 98 F250LD, I evacuated the reservoir, pulled the return line and extended it into a 1.5 water bottle. I then capped the return nipple on the reservoir and refilled it with Western Family Shur Tech ATF I got with a gift certificate. Filled up and started for a few seconds at high idle four...

    F250 4R70W shudder

    So I finally licensed the truck and drove it to work. Near the end of the 30 mile drive while climbing a low speed incline, the transmission began to shudder pretty badly and seems like it was slipping some too. I am posting from my phone right now and can't go into great detail, but here is...
