Re: Honest Engines

^ Yes! I love it! That looks like my '77 F150 which had the rod and pivots linkage. I never ever had a cable until the Mustang. I remember on the F150 (which was a find-em-or-grind-em three-on-the-tree) I blew an engine mount and then every time I torqued it too hard the pivot shaft would fall off ...

TODAY IS OIL-CHANGE ON THE DRIVEWAY DAY! Don't forget the drain pan! It snot rocket sugary! This vehicle was a breeze - both the drain plug and the filter had straight shots down to the drain pan. I've worked on some vehicles where the filter doesn't have an unimpeded vertical path down to the drai...

Re: Seams Tummy Eye Dew Recall.....

Tie a rope onto the 100% all-natural parking brake (use all-natural rope) and when you get in the driver's seat, you can move the vehicle off the parking brake and then tug on the rope to pull the parking brake back inside with you, so you always have one for the next time you park on a grade. Or h...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I'm driving a car, as a loaner, that would make Fork very cross. I have a 2018 CX-5 with radar adaptive snooze control, BondageSadoMasochism and auto hold (holds the brakes for the driver once the vehicle comes to a full stop, no feet necessary). I turned on the radar snooze just to see what it was...

Re: Vehicles that you wouldn't think could have a standard shift

Your Voyager must have been a 4 cylinder? I believe they only came with the 3 speed auto. The Caravan I had with the 2.2L and 5 speed manual averaged around 20 mpg around town. It didn't have a tach, (or even reclining seats) but it sounded like 5th was geared low. I'd guess the engine would be clo...

Re: Vehicles that you wouldn't think could have a standard shift

I'm so old that I fart dust and I remember when the STANDARD transmission that came with each-n-every vehicle was a manually-shifted transmission, typically a 3-speed. The slushbox, if it was available, was OPTIONAL - if you didn't check off the box and pay more money, you didn't get an automatic. ...

Re: Vehicles that you wouldn't think could have a standard shift

Clutch, whatever happened to the Voyager? Did it shuffle off this mortal coil? Well, I stupidly backed it into a pole and smashed in the bumper, shattered out the back window, and sprung the back hatch. We had it repaired for about $750, but the door never shut as nicely anymore. Then we found the ...

Re: ***Official Joke Thread***

A police officer stops a blonde for speeding and asks her very nicely if he could see her license. She replied in a huff, 'I wish you guys would get your act together. Just yesterday you take away my license and then today you expect me to show it to you!' --------------------------- A gorgeous youn...
