Re: Loosen Parking Brake

This. When I installed new carpet, the center console had to come out. Just go full gorilla on the parking brake handle and you'll be able to get it back far enough to remove the console.

Re: Can someone explain how the coolant resevoir works?

In more detail: as the coolant is heated by the engine, it expands. As it expands, some flows out of the overflow fitting on the radiator's filler neck, and into the reservoir.
Once the coolant...

'06 Center Caps?

Anyone know where I can find a center cap for a 9 spoke cast wheel on my '06 Touring? One seems to have gone missing.

Re: auto salvage yard thoughts

That Mayflower is quite the oddball. Conceived as a sort of compact luxury car, it combined Rolls Royce or Bentley styling with Morris Minor size. It had a rip-roaring 1,247cc side valve I-4 engine...

Re: Would you buy this redesigned PT?

Meh. Nothing to really differentiate it from a dozen other crossovers or mini-SUVs. Yeah, it sort of looks like a PT Cruiser, but then again, a PT Cruiser was supposed to sort of look like a...

Re: Loping Idle

Isn't the 1495 code what you get when the gas cap's o-ring dries out and doesn't seal? EVAP refers to the evaporative emissions system- instead of having a vented gas cap that allows fuel vapors to...

+1 on vacuum / intake leak. A classic symptom.

I did the same thing, knowing that there are things that typically wear out, but not being certain that I knew exactly where to look. Our local Brake Masters offers a free "safety...

Re: Klunk

The lower control arms are notorious for getting noisy with high mileage (both the bushings and the ball joints wear out and get rattly). The sway bar bushings also tend to disintegrate after a...

Re: Head Gasket: Leave Cams On?

Looks like the studs sit pretty close to being below the camshafts:

Getting a socket in there to remove / retorque them could be, uh, challenging.

Re: How to add a glasspack?

Every system I've ever seen that incorporates a glasspack and a muffler has the glasspack just aft of the engine, and the muffler in the usual position aft of the rear axle. The glasspack acts...

Re: Bought some ebay exhaust for my PT :)

+1 on adding a glasspack just aft of the cat; it'll likely damp some of the harshness out of the exhaust note, and may even add a bit of back pressure (which these engines need). And, like you said,...

Re: Crapped up my paint...help please :)

You might get away with just hitting it with some clear coat. Depends on whether the buggerage is just on the existing clear coat, or whether the underlying color coat has been damaged. I'd be...

Re: Magnaflow catalytic converter

Wait just a minute- you took it to the shop, they replaced the O2 sensor, and then your PT starts throwing codes, and the shop says you need to replace your catalytic converter?
At the very least...

Re: Magnaflow catalytic converter

In which case he's have to use an OEM cat, or an aftermarket one that's CARB approved. In any event, $1400 seems WAY expensive for such work.

Re: Shaking, rattling, rolling, and shocks n struts

You've got slop in the system; something's loose. I'd start by looking at the tie rod ends- they're the most likely candidate, and the least expensive fix.

Is there a Brake Masters or other...

Re: New clutch making noise when engaged

Okay, from your original post, it sounded like you were getting a squeaking noise as long as you had the clutch pedal depressed (which is typical of a throwout or pilot bearing) , not just during the...

Bad throwout bearing? Should have a new one with the clutch replacement.

Re: What did you do to your PT today?

Removed the pesky passenger side rear window, using a weed whacker and a random rock. One step closer to a panel truck conversion?
