    Alas, if I have the car at 200k, I will just change the gasket...

    I see. So you guys are saying the plastic piece disengages from the metal fitting and then the fitting can be removed from the fuel supply hard plastic line?

    I would start with making sure the preventative maintenance is current including changing all fluids (coolant, power steering, transmission, brake, turn signal - just kidding). It's not going to make...

    I think the OBD-II connector is on the D-BUS which is linked to the PT-CAN through the JBE (acronyms - yay!). I want to say I've read the JBE acts as a gateway, but it has been a while since I've...

    That's really pathetic. I've removed and replaced my turbos three times (through no fault of my own) in my driveway and I would never even joke about pulling some $#@! like that. If I took my car to...

    30/70 glycol water mix is fine for daily driving, but I wouldn't store it that way in Canada over the winter unless the storage facility is heated and there is zero chance of the heater breaking. All...
