Re: Pricing my PT for a private sale

In my mind pricing it at 1400-1600 would be a good starting point. If a vehicle is mechanically sound some people won't care about the cosmetics. The cruiser would be a perfect car for someone who...

Re: Cylinder 4 Misfire?

without having the car here I'd bet on it being a faulty injector. A basic tune up plug, wires, and coil wouldn't hurt. The down side of the Cruiser is to do a basic tune up the plenum has to be...

Re: Excessive oil in spark plug cavity.

When you're replacing the valve cover replace the grommets around the retaining bolts. If the valve cover set doesn't come with the grommets you can buy them separately.

With the engine in the car it can be difficult. Another thing that can help is to use spring clamps to hold the timing belt to the cam sprockets. If the cams move they'll both move together. I...

Re: Slow leak

Over the years I've had different makes and models of vehicles with alloy wheels develop leaks around the bead. Handy is right. Have the tire shop dismount them and clean up the bead area and you...

Re: Master Detailers: Can Compounding Help?

If it's tree sap the easiest (and cheapest) thing I found to remove it is rubbing alcohol with a soft cloth. It won't hurt the paint.

Re: Did i kill my baby? Crank but no start on 2004 N/a touring edition after stall

The easiest way to find out if the timing belt broke is to remove the inspection plug from the top timing belt cover. You'll see the cam gears. Have someone crank the engine. If the belts broke the...
