  1. The power steering hoses run fairly close to the left side exhaust manifold. And the rubber seems to start suffering after 2 years or so and cracking... Replaced another one today. I was wondering if that exhaust wrap material coukd be wrapped around the rubber portion of the hoses to help protect it from the heat?
  2. Finally got smart. After it died, hooked up the spark tester inline coming from the Coil wire that goes to the distributor.... It died, fitted the tester, cranked it, No spark. Replaced coil on monday all is good so far!!!
  3. Alright, replaced the Distributor cap and rotor.... no change... idles for 25-30 minutes then without a miss or sputter dies. then fires right back up... in the spark tester the spark is a good bright blue.
  4. Alright, my mother's car has been acting up... She went to town day before yesterday, called and said it would start, then die... Then no start at all. got there,it wouldn't even hit with starting fluid into the air intake. A few minutes later, fired right up, ran great. she drove as we followed her, then it died again on a feeder road, luckily there were plenty of places of business to pull into, just so happened, it died right in front of a car dealership. any how, after it set a minute, fired back up.. Ran great. Drove it around yesterday. Ran flawless. My mom went to pickup groceries last night, called, said it died on her. Me and my brother grabbed a tow strap and took off... Got there, wouldn't hit a lick. Brought it home after it had cooked off, fired up. Ran great. This morning we're looking at it, we let it idle for a bit, it died. Hooked up my trusty spark tester to a plug wire....no spark... After it set for about 3 minutes, we tried to start it with the tester hooked up to the wire, and plug..It fired once then nothing....after it cooled again, fired right up.... I told my dad, next time it dies, check the spark coming from the coil to The distributor, as one plug wire from the coil to The distributor. So it died again, hooked the spark tester inline from the coil to distributor..Spark!!! Took the tester off and reinstalled the coil to distributor wire and it fired right up.... So sometimes when it dies, it fires right up, other times, it won't and has no spark.
  5. Im sure you've got it now but http://rockfordcv.com/Mitsubishi_torque.htm
  6. IMHO the only way to buy a car is to go see it physically, drive it, get to know it.
  7. the suburban is acting up, it would rev up high and shit real hard with a clunk, and sometimes just idle very high, my dad's replaced the Idle air control valve and coolant temp. sender. i think he's reading it might be the throttle position sensor... any ideas? Thanks
  8. Is this what you're looking for? https://www.carid.com/genuine/timing-chain-mpn-243212b620.html?singleid=1663168062&url=81146515
  9. When rebuilding engines i've always used Lucas assembly lube never had any problems, but it runs easy, and i want something that will stay on cam lobes better so when i coat a flat tappet cam, i want something more tacky that will stick the cam lobes, any reccomendations?
  10. I voted for Wix Because 1.Price, they are around 7.50 at my local O'rielly auto parts, good quality from Youtube testing videos, cut open. Cheap insurance
  11. the Project Farm channel on youtube, he has been doing a very good Head to Head showdown of different engine Oils, really informative. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9DWGtXpYUc&list=PLjT3B9r2z3fXlvbP3tb9e056Q8O5krrCW
  12. Replaced the starter 2 months ago, hasn't done it since!
  13. Ford Motor Co said Thursday it will recall nearly 1.5 million cars in North America to address a faulty part that could lead to engine stalls. The second-largest U.S. automaker said it is calling back 2012 through 2018 model-year Ford Focus cars with 2.0-liter GDI and 2.0-liter GTDI engines for a malfunctioning canister purge valve. Ford said the valve may become stuck open, creating excessive vacuum in the fuel system could deform the car's plastic fuel tank. That, in turn, could cause a malfunction light, or a fuel gauge could give inaccurate readings. Which in turn could lead to a stall while driving and an inability to restart the vehicle, risking a crash. Ford said it is not aware of any crashes as a result of this condition but said owners should maintain at least a half tank of fuel until the recall is completed.
