    I was at Walmart today with my better half and picked up a new radio antenna. It's more ... floppy ... than the OEM antenna, but still looks good and is a good match for what it replaced. At only $9 I am not complaining.

    I am still getting grinding/grating noise out of something in the front axle. I have yet to track that down, could be a stuck caliper, low diff fluid, or even a wheel bearing. Both wheels seem to act the same and it doesn't pull to one side or the...

    Unfortunately, that's a standard feature of many used cars. ^ Glad to see you're reviving it. :)

    After searching through the manual, you need to do the following: 1) Make sure the sensor is mounted fully and securely. I assume that means flush. 2) Check the exhaust for leaks 3) You may need a new catalytic converter, it will throw...

    This is the second sensor and both of the new ones only screwed in up to that point which is why I was wondering if it has to be flush in order for it to work. Can everybody see that picture or no?

    From the manual: If the Bank 2 HO2S 2 signal voltage remains between 400 mV and 500 mV for an extended period of time, DTC P0160 will be set. Heated Oxygen sensors are used to minimize the amount of time required for “closed loop” fuel...

    Depending on how long it sat and where it came from, the calipers "could be" seizing. My VX only gets about 3k miles a year so it sits in the garage a lot. I'm also in the mid atlantic, which gets it's fair share of road salts every winter. Due to...

    Thread Necro. I did this with Nighshades. Nice thing about that is that you can literally control HOW black you want the lights to be. I did mine so they look like a pretty good match for my light covers.

    That is a pain in the butt to do, for sure. I have my spare one soaking right now so that the job won't be as hard this time around.

    Hope they last for you. My experience with the cheaper end of speakers is that they usually don't last very long. Even without "Stereo Abuse", the ambient conditions don't do wonders for the materials used in their construction.
