mystery leak

I had the exact same issue three years ago.
I installed a new radiator in a '94 Camry, and after a few months it began losing coolant, much to the amazement of myself and the local mech.
It turns...

WSW issue on an '02 Camry

The windshield wipers on my '02 Camry make a rather loud scraping/scratching sound as they do their thing.
I had the same problem before and changed out the whole rig - new motor, rods, everything....

The windows are simple, big old sash jobs, not stained glass.
The 'one-by' approach sparked interest, from an expense standpoint as well as
looking right.
True, the old place is drafty as a...

Thank you, Pilot Dane
Where is the coil, behind the pull-start mechanism?
I think you are right, this thing is at least worth some time and effort.
Thanks, again

John Deere LA145

My friend's JD LA145 will go neither forward nor reverse. He did hit 'something' last time out, so
I'm thinking he broke something under the shroud. I'm told they're belt-driven.
Nothing absolutely...

Seems to me I read about an automatic trannie causing this; it wasn't de-connecting something inside. I think it was called 'shuddering'.
Just my two-cents

I'm told those gorillas use impact wrenches to tighten drain plugs and wheel-lugs. Can that be true?
I've never gone near a 'quicky-quicky' lube joint and never will.

the '02 Camry has 102K on it. I took R-W's advice and ordered a new filter (I'm told it's a strainer, actually). The brown truck has delivered it, so I'll put it in. Mr. Retired Wrench suggested a...

auto trannie cleaners

Hi, guys -
I bought an '02 "certified" used Camry from a dealer in '08.
After 40K miles I changed the trannie fluid. It looked like coffee!
I'm assuming the fluid was factory. There was a clunk in...

I R&R'd the 'dogbone' on top of the engine - easy !
It's hugely improved, but I wonder if I should have done the one down in front of the engine behind the radiator - the reason being that the ...

High humidity where you live?

Well, there we are. So - are there aftermarket brands worth buying, most especially not from a sweat-hole in Wuhan? NAPA, maybe? I've heard they're stuff is good.

Tried it, and the engine flexed a bit; the dog-bone center-bolt looked like it "freed" (For want of a better description) when the engine flexed; approx. 2".
Can it be something else?

Camry clunks on acceleration

My '02 Camry is giving me a slight noticeable noise (& feel) on acceleration.
The local radio car-guy says it's a front engine mount, since Toyota trannies are usually trouble-free. 98000...
