The same air pressure is applied to both air bags so they should lift the same amount, however when the weight in the car is removed and the ride height is too high, the control unit opens the solenoids to vent some air. If the control unit only sends the vent signal to one solenoid or the wiring t…
Most of the time if you have water in your oil you ruined a head gasket. If they took off the cover it was probably the valve cover. If they could see the pistons they would have had to have pulled the heads off and they would know for sure and would have fixed the problem as it takes a…
Bend over a little farther... doesn't that feel good to see the oil leaking leaking out of the valve cover? Probably not, but those are common for leaks, I think it may be a valve cover gasket. Get a neoprene one, not cork if you plan to change it your self. Could be leaking from anywhere back ther…

The main reason that a speedometer and odometer will stop is because the speed sensor, located on the back top area of the transmission, has gone faulty.

If you're dealing with a lack of clearance to either side of the rotor after you've inserted the new pads, you need to first compress the caliper piston using a large C-clamp and THEN insert the new pads.

No, not really. After you get the caliper off, the rotor should just slide off- but- there may still be the factory retainer on one of the studs which you can destroy with a hammer and chisel. If the vehicle's parking brakes are separate from the disc brakes, then the piston for the caliper can just…
Yes, but highly unlikely. Depressurize the system by letting the fuel bleed off out the Schraeder valve on the fuel rail.

After the caliper is removed, it should slide right off.If it does not slide off because of rust or dirt. The impact of a hammer should dislodge what is holding it.
Before you go through the trouble, did make sure it is bad first? Do you know how to check one?
It goes in from the rear. If you can't get to it you may need to remove the light assy.
The PVC valve is located on the driver side rear part of the valve cover. It is screwed into the cover with a black hose coming from it. You just need a wrench to un screw it. Don't cross thread the new one going back in. Thread in by hand to start.
