    I originally bought the car being told 2nd hear was weak, that was okay for me. After leaving the shop I had a problem where after driving the car for about 20 or so minutes the clutch would start to stick and it would become impossible to shift.

    Trying to change my water pump on 2003. I've ran into a wall on getting the sprocket off the camshaft. What is the best way to remove it? I've tried the puller I borrowed from Autozone to remove the crankshaft pulley, but the ears are too thick to go under/behind the sprocket. Any suggestions?

    Figured I'd post an update on the nearly finished rear fog mod! First off: The retrofitted reverse/backup lights are not complete. I have purposely not installed the bottom screws yet, as I have some screw covers I am paint matching in Marine Blue Pearl to blend with my car. Secondly, the...

    Those of you who have been following some of the woes with Whitney know that she's had radiator issues and supposed EVAP issues. Well, the EVAP stuff turned out to be an easy fix. New vapour canister and a new gas cap. Up until the weekend, the past month has been an occasional overheat and...

    HI, 2006 base PT Cruiser with 99,000 miles. Runs good, but the last couple of days, I can hear a faint 'grinding noise', that comes and goes, almost in a wave like pattern. I can be going a steady 40 mph, and this soft grinding noise will creep in , and out, in and out. It's not a wheel...
