old thread

Sundown, although this thread is over a year old I will respond. Even when I bought a new FPR I still needed to take off the cover with the torx screw to get the new piece installed. This I did and...

How long do cats last?

I changed the O2 sensor almost right after I purchased it (along with new injectors) and the misfire was fixed soon after I discovered the cause. The plugs looked new even then. But you are right. It...

Top Gear U.S.A.

They are on hiatus for now but the History channel owns them and they film right here in SoCal. Local jobs are good for our economy.

Be Kind to each Other.

Come on guys. Give it a season more. It's not that bad. The Alaska truck race was good. Besides, I was in the audience for the season finale, right behind the Buick Roadmaster Wagon. Any car show is...

You can catch all of the British episodes on Netflix. And don't forget the American version of Top Gear which was renewed for another season.

Found the answer, sort of.

Ok, a little research on another site reveals that it is possible to knock out those "security" nubs. Or one can buy a security torx bit. The right size torx bit is t10. If anyone looks at this...

Thank you General Motors

It's about impossible to know what size I need if I can't even get one in there. I need to know what the size is beforehand so I can buy one at the local auto store. At least I now know it's a tamper...

Tamper Proof?

Oh, man! do you mean I'm going to have to buy a set of tamper proof torx bits for this job? Or do you think I can buy just the one size at my local NAPA?
What have you guys done?

Too slow for the Bomber Run

Looks like we won't be able to make it this Saturday. I am still having issues with either fuel delivery or clogged cats. It's actually embarrassing to drive so slowly. It won't rev beyond 2,000 rpm...
