    Lower Intake Manifold gasket

    How much should it cost to have a LIM gasket replaced eventually? It's a '03 Impala with the 3.4. I don't have the skills, space, nor know anyone available to do it for me other than the garage we have taken it to for stuff over the years. I just wanted a figure I can keep in mind when I check...

    Brake Bleeders

    Specifically, the "One Man" kits. I was wanting to replace the brake fluid in our '03 Impala someday, and was wondering if it could be done with one of the bleeders. <img src="/forums/graemlins/27.gif" alt="hide" title="hide" height="35" width="26" />

    Can Sprayway be used on tinted windows?

    I dislike Invisible Glass with a passion. The best I've found is the blue and white can of Sprayway. My question is can it be used on tinted windows since it says "Ammonia Free"?

    searched but could not find it....

    Someone on here posted a link to a site where it was comparing oil brands and was geared towards us the consumer. Does anyone recall that posting? I cannot find it nor a link anywhere.

    "power" screwdrivers

    Anyone use them? I have one from W'mart for less than $10 and it works ok. Bonus is it takes 4 regular AA's. I mainly use it for the plates on our car as I remove them now and then to clean behind them.

    Lovely vehicle site.

    Though it had a cool looking black semi on it and a replica General Lee :) this site gets one thinking what WERE these people thinking? <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    lug nut painting question

    I wanted to get stainless steel cover lugnuts for our impala (have the center caps on it) but they cost too much. I decided when/if spring ever comes to paint the chrome lugnuts and just deal with touching up the paint every so often. My question is should I bother trying the "chrome" finish...

    A little satisfied with myself.

    I just finished replacing the heating element in the stove my sister gave us two years ago. :D The oven took about 10 to 11 minutes to get warm; I never thought anything of the element going bad. we were waiting for it to heat so we could make some biscuits and heard a pop and I went to look...

    Oxygen sensor question for other impala owners

    We have a '03 Impala 3.4 showing code of P0137 (oxygen Sensor). My question is should it matter if I get a Bosch or Denso or AC Delco brand? I read elsewhere that GM 3.4s are anal when it comes to any other brand of O2 sensor being used. Why should it matter? I'm confused. PS: this would be...

    Training question

    I'm 40 now, and like alot of people; unemployed. Would it be too late to take schooling for body work? I'd wanted to 15 years ago, but since I was at home at the time Iwas forced into a job instead of training (long story). I tried 3 years ago to learn ASE mechanics at our county's voed...

    Stripes on my '03 Impala

    I was considering reflective blue and reflective black stripes along the edge lines of our Imp. It's either that or a single reflective blue. About 1/4 inch or less wide. Adjusted towards the body line under the windows. <img...

    Coffee table with chess board

    Anyone have ideas where I can find plans for or a coffee table with a chess board laid out on it? I have a set, but wanted to get a table already with the board on it. Everywhere I searched had tables, but no coffee table types. Plus they were at cheapest $470. <img...

    Thinking of selling my Cavalier

    I've had this car since it was new (5 miles on it) and am considering after 111,171 miles of selling it. I wrote a list similar to ones I saw in library books on buying/selling cars yourself for and against selling it. Here is my list: For Keeping it: 1) Car is paid for 2) Convenience of 2...

    Jeremy Mayfield's deal

    Did nascar finally say what naughty substance he was supposed to have taken? All I ever heard was it was an OTC medicine and a prescription medicine that combined. <img src="/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/54.gif" alt="" title="confused" height="22" width="15" />

    A question for baseball fans

    Which have you been to more: major or minor league games? I've been to two majors, but about 8 minor since '00 and found them more enjoyable. <img src="/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/36.gif" alt="" title="popcorn2" height="35" width="49" /> Best seat ticket prices are lower than the worst...

    Bumper cover/Sorry if it's the wrong section

    As I've mentioned in a few posts I have a '00 cavalier (standard version). I was thinking of getting a stock Z24 bumper cover from a boneyard someday for the better (for oem) fog lights. I can't fit anything in the slots of the original cover without cutting. <img...

    What's your favorite glass cleaner?

    I like Sprayway, but have to find a decent type of cloth. Newspaper doesn't work as good as how to articles claim. <img src="/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif" alt="\:\(" title="frown" height="15" width="15" />

    Finally decided where to get tires

    Though I wish I still had some of our tax refund, I am glad I didn't get tires after all. My wife and I got a membership at Sams Club and I searched their site for tires for my cavalier and the impala. I found 6 suitable for the 14 in size and 7 for the 16. The only ones they had in stock were...

    Just used Fleetfilter

    Our taxes miraculously came <img src="/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin2.gif" alt="" title="grin" height="15" width="15" />, and one of the "needs" I used the $ for was a case of #1040 oil filters from Fleetfilter. These will certainly last me awhile even though both my cars use the same...

    Driving lights for a '03 Impala

    Whenever I can save the cash I was thinking of getting driving/fog light combos (in same housing type) or driving lights for our '03 Impala. It is the standard cheap model so has the holes in the center of the bumper. I have not measured them so I don't know which rectangular lights would fit...
