Re: TYC or DEPOT replacement headlights?

I've got TYC in my Ranger and PT, both seem OK.

As for the broken TYC taillight, if the light is stressed when installed ( bent fender ) or screw over tightened, any light will crack.

Re: Getrag torque limits

Also important is what the car will be used for. Drag racing shock load is harder on a trans than circuit or even oval racing.

The fan won't cause this issue, don't bother changing it.

A p0300 is random cylinder miss fire so look for a global problem.

It helps if you remove the blade from the arm, this way you can move the arm closer to the glass. Be sure to cover the arm with a rag as the glass isn't scratched.
