    is white lithium grease ok for caliper slide pins?

    <img src="http://faculty.ccp.edu/faculty/dreed/Campingart/jettatech/dsc00749.jpg" alt="" /> It's not the main piston, but the slide pins that allow the pads to release from the rotor. The local parts store sold me some white lithium grease and says he does that to fix the cars in his shop. I...

    well, I found out why my car was running worse after FP...

    I bought a 87 CRX (carburated) for $250 last November. Upon picking up the car I did an oil change, added FP and drove it 180 miles home. My carb knowlege is very limited and it seemed like that the float was a little high, but I didn't know anything. Finally when I became more familiar with...

    FP and carburators...

    Yes, I know FP was around when all the cars had carbs, but I'm finding that when I put fuel power in my carburated Hondas I'm getting a negative effect. I was only able to get through just the shock dosage on my Prelude before I decided to put it away to sell it, but a similar, but less seveare...

    AutoRX compatability with dino Valvoline vr-1 20w-50?

    Does Valvoline VR-1 20w-50 have some esters in it that would make it a bad idea to use with autoRX. The car is my dual duty daily beater/race car and I have some left over 20w-50 that I'm not using from my other car. I definately do have some sludge and also some seal leaks, so I would like...

    anyone want to chip in for a voa of Mystic 10w-40

    Yeah, I know it's an uncommon grade, but it's a tad more versitile than the 15w-40's weather wise. Plus, this is the recommended oil for my car, too. I'd send this off on my own dollar, but being a college student doesn't help very much. If interested, e-mail [email protected]

    got an angry letter from the RIAA.

    So, I've been using Soulseek for about six months now, everything was going fine. I only shared my library with people that I was DL'ing from. Very cool. I've been trying to download the entire 'Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs of all-time' and I was about half way done. Today I go out to my mailbox...

    found out what was causing the power loss in the civic...

    I would have never suspected this... <img src="http://www.bergware.net/tmbwww/sparkplug.jpg" alt=" - " /> For some reason this plug failed, but still worked. It was still firing and didn't make any odd sounds at all. It would also explain the instantaneous power loss. I just hope it was the...

    What does it take to clog a catalytic converter?

    I picked up a Honda civic with the d15a2 motor with 212,400 miles a few weeks ago. Immediately put autoRX in the crankcase and FP in the fuel. By about 550 miles the car was just not running quite right anymore. After doing some simple things to the car and checking it out it seems as if the...

    I'm thinking of doing a double, possibly a triple minor.

    Right now I'm a History major and business minor. After this year I'll have 2 business classes left and 2 history classes left to fufill my requirements. Next year is my senior year. So I looked at other options... Asian studies: I will have 3 classes after this year and I'll need 3 more. 1...

    Has anyone clogged a fuel filter using shock dosage of Fuel Power?

    I just recently bought an 87 CRX. Immediately upon driving it I added fuel power in shock dosage. 430 miles on that and ran the tank virtually dry. Added 10 more gallons and 2 oz of FP. By mile 550 I lost all power above 2500 rpm. The problem is leading itself to 2 places, either the carb or...

    solo2driver, I thing I've found a problem you may have already run into...

    No power in fourth and fifth gear above 2500 rpm. Poor power in third gear. Car doesn't move under WOT. Could this be a float issue? Is this why you were recommending a seafoam treatment?

    Are there any oversized filter options for an 84-87 civic motor?

    Specifically my car is an 87 CRX with the 1.5 carburated motor. The Purolator (L10291) specs for this filter are 22x1.5-6H, bypass at 8-16 PSI and no gasket information (I don't have one handy, but that one is easier to check for). Are there any filters that use this thread and pitch? Anyone...

    Stereo problems on my CRX

    That's a good idea. I figured out which wire is the ignition lead and ran a new wire off of that, but I'll have to look into that for a more permanent solution. Does the fuse control the lead or the 12v signal, though? the 12v signal is fine, it's just the lead is goofy. And yes, I did...

    waaahooo!!!! I bought an 87crx today!

    I put a $100 deposit on it and I pick it up some time early next week. $250 with a slipping clutch (but still very drivable). It's the carbed version, but such is life. The chassis is pretty solid and ready for a build into a CSP car. Now I'll actually be able to look at the car and figure...

    _SP civi/crx, question for Solo2driver

    This is the final slew of stupid questions. I think I've finally come to the most logical decision as far as a car goes. What backspacing is needed for a 13x9 on an 84-87 crx or civic? What Backspacing is needed for a 13x9 on an 88-91 crx/civc, if it isn't the same? I see the GC has only...

    Why do I get better milage & power with shock dosage of fuel power?

    I've notice that I get better milage, better cold start up and a broader power band with a shock dosage (2oz per 5 gallons) rathar than the recommended (1oz per 5 gallons) of fuel power. Car is a 1989 Honda Prelude that is carburated. The car didn't run right before (and still doesn't run...
