Thanks!

Even better than rubber balls, I found out that 1/4" nuts (http://www.supermotors.net/registry/media/739646) do the job as well. Once I got the gearbox open, I could see that the central...

I wound up going to the dealer to have the car put on their scanner. It was a faulty transmission temperature sensor, after all. To fix it, the car needs open transmission surgery, which does not...

Well, I was mistaken about the radiator fan. It does run, which calls into question the P1624 code. Is that really for the cooling fan relay circuit? I've also seen references to this code meaning...

Okay, I fiddled about with the wiring, found a loose plug, and rebuilt two connectors. Two of the codes went away, but I still have two remaining. The first is P0713- Transmission Temperature Sensor...

I have an odd reception problem with both stereos in my house. There is a distant FM radio station that I would like to tune in to. The stereos in my car and truck both pick it up fine, but neither...

Well, now I'm fairly certain that it is the wiring harness. The connector for the coolant temperature sensor gauge broke off in my hand today, so I'm fairly certain that bad wiring at the connectors...

Charging system light question

A few weeks ago, the alternator gave up the ghost on my 2000 Hyundai Elantra, with well over 230K miles. It was the original alternator, so it's not like it was a big surprise or anything like that....

What I did was use a doorjamb transition piece that was designed for tongue-and-groove hardwood flooring. It looked a bit like 'T' molding, only it is solid on one side. Your local Big Box store...

How wide were your Pergo floor boards? The ones I am looking at are only 3 1/2" wide, while the Armstrong boards I am working with now are more than twice that. I'm wondering if it is easier with...

I think I figured out what happened. The first time I tried to brake on ice, all I did was touch the brake pedal. If the road was as slick as I think it was, I could have momentarily locked up all...

Also, I've seen more than one...
