Who knows, people use apps nowadays. Not to many youngins use urls.

@  alemstrom : (08 October 2018 - 12:12 AM)

What's poppin! We don't know what to do to liven up the website!

@  steveyjr1982 : (01 October 2018 - 09:58 PM)

The majority of people on fb are annoying.

@  ejguillot : (21 September 2018 - 03:03 PM)

Agreed. I'd rather pay money to keep this site going than be on Facebook and having everything on there be used to make a buck for Zuck and company.

@  Vicious6 : (20 September 2018 - 01:48 PM)

We need to get this place moving again! Post link to this site on every social media site you know! Been around too long and we can't let it go down..........

Just curious what kind of weight difference, and perhaps gearing might effect things.

Agree that there's some sort of disconnect for having an additional 100bhp on tap, but maybe there are at least some other factors at work as well.

Cool vid.

Used some anti-seize on my surfaces the last time I did it. We'll see if it helped. Have to do mine soon as well.

My '03 LS is sporting three of the original bearings at 155k miles. A BIG difference from the '04 GS which had to have them all replaced before 90k miles, and now possibly again at 165k.

 

I took the opportunity to adjust the parking brake. Kind of fiddly mechanism overall, but ultimately it's easy to figure out.

Wow, looks great. Did you take before pics?

Learn about some new product almost every day. You find it at the local flaps, or have to buy online?

Hey hotel. Did you get there? Fun time, and did you connect with anyone from here?

Sorry it's been so quiet of late. Guess everyone has other things to do (I know I do!) and have not had time to spend on their cars like we used to.

Then again, lots of members have either sold or lost their cars to attrition.

 

Hope you had a good time.

In Topic: blend door

04 November 2018 - 04:10 AM

Thanks gumba. I've been thinking lately that I'm going to have to dig into things pretty soon.

My HVAC stuff works, and I get cold air on AC and hot air on HEAT, but 90% of it comes out the floor register(s) and the rest comes out the dash vents no matter where the settings are.

And to get it to transition from heat to cold and back I have to up'n or down'n the temp settings by about 10° before it transitions.

 

I'm going to check the refrigerant level anyway, bit  it's sounding like my blend doors are falling prey to old age.

I do believe that we've discussed the glovebox side before. But it's been awhile since I've seen any writeups on either side, and I'm likely going to have to visit YouTube a time or three before tackling it.

 

Save my back as long as possible!
