  23. Brake problems after letting car sit for a few months

    Sorry about the bump :coy:Yeah, they use salt here. But it was June when I stopped driving the car. Would letting it sit for only a few months seize the caliper?

  32. Alternator discharging but light will not come on with car running

    Hey man, when my alternator went I had none of the usual signs. No battery light or anything. I replaced my battery and my car kept dying. I cleaned the end terminals and checked all fuses and whatnot just as you did, so Im guessing that it is most likely your alternator.:thumb:
  33. Stupid things people say to impress you ?

    I had some moron in a 2g tell me at a light that his car had a V-6 out of a pontiac in it, then he acted like I was an idiot for not believing him. I wanted to punch the guy in the face.Theres always someone faster out there, but theres also always someone dumber.

    damn, i know how that feels....sorry man
  37. poor performance

    My advice is to start with figuring out what the hell is going on with your boost controller, mabe have a knowledgable frined look at it. Then do a complete tune-up, plugs, wires, oil change, coolant flush.....etc.I was surprsed at how much better my car ran after just doing the simple...

  39. 1.8 and 2.0 motor mounts

    I had to remove the timing side mount on my 1.8, and it was a #####I used a jack with a block of wood to take the stress off the mount under the oil pan (but not enough to lift the car, that could end in tragedy) Then I just un-bolted the thing. I ended up breaking 3 cheap rachets on it...
  40. 1.8 and 2.0 motor mounts

    Alright, in another thread it was found that I needed a new alternator. I went to replace it today and I have but one bolt that I cannot remove. It is the long thin pivot bolt that has a nut on the end. I removed the nut, but I cannot get the bolt/pin thing to slide out. I wiggled the alt...
  47. NEED HELP NOW!!! electical problem!!!

    yep, Im screwed. The car was dead when I went to start it today. Im at a loss. Like I said before, I believe that it is a parasitic loss of some sort. I dont think it is the alternator, because after I finally got the car started, it ran fine until I let it sit for several hours.I still...
