Re: ***Official Joke Thread***

A little stay-at-home humor: Anyone else's car getting 3 weeks to the gallon at the moment? After several days at home I have determined what I really need to do is start social distancing myself from my refrigerator. Pigeons probably think we're extinct. Do not call the police on suspicious people ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

With our 92 5.0 I can't even get into second gear on surface streets without violating the speed limit. That is undeniably an operator issue, not a car issue. I manage to stay well within the speed limit with considerably more power. But I like to run the gears out, and even then I probably are not...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

On the other hand if I found a nice '99-'04 Mustang V6 with a manual I might just go with that. Wikipedia says, "The 3.8 L OHV Essex V6 returned as the base engine for 1999. A new split-port induction system replaced single-port induction, which increased the base model's output to 190 hp (142 kW; ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

My luck...gas prices are lower than whale poop and i've got nowhere to drive to. Yeah, me too. On the bright side, my S10 has been bucking at steady speed on the freeway and we can't seem to find the problem. Well now it just sits, so it doesn't buck anymore. I would leave it off at the shop for th...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Since this thing looks like a hearse, why would they even sell it in black. Every time I see one of these I think there must be a stiff in the back. https://hips.hearstapps.com/amv-prod-cad-assets.s3.amazonaws.com/images/16q4/671590/2017-gmc-yukon-xl-denali-4wd-instrumented-test-review-car-and-drive...

Re: 2001 S10 2.2L engine cuts out on freeway

Ah yes, fuel pump. They did change out the fuel filter in January. Said it was pretty clogged. Running like that can be hard of the fuel pump bearings I guess, but that is a different response than the cut out, so I think. What I am trying to do is if it cuts out, step on the accelerator to see if i...

2001 S10 2.2L engine cuts out on freeway

For the past several months I have noticed the engine will seem to cut out for a split second every now and then. It might not happen for a few days or so, but then one day it might happen 5 or 6 times in a few miles. It feels like the engine quits for a split second as the truck will jerkily slow f...
