    A/C making noise from the dash?

    When running normal a/c it sounds like there’s a tiny rock or something pinging around in there. It only does this when on normal a/c, when you turn it to max the noise goes away. Any ideas what could cause this?

    05-09 gt's as a daily?

    Been driving my 03 focus for a long time now. It's a decent car but its just not me. Been looking at the 3 valves as a new replacement daily. Im looking at cars in the 5~7 range so they have high miles, but theres alot of nice ones out there for cheap. So are these pretty decent cars? Not...

I can hear the tone of the engine get quiet then the car will recover and settle to normal idle. No issues under wot or part...

    Tossed a metco idler last night.

    Took the car out last night and gave it the buisness a little. Shifted into second and I hear loud banging under the car. So I limp it back home and find the metco idler by the crank pulley is missing. Never heard of this happening. I tried out an RPM belt last summer and it was killing...

    New Rpm belt killing alternator bearings?

    I've had two napa alternators crap out on me since I put the gates rpm belt on, its the bearings. Ive heard that you shouldn't run too tight on the rpm belts but the 75 inch belt was never excessively tight. Indicator on tensioner is in the middle, so I ordered that size. Could this belt be...

    Napa alternator failures.

    Bought a nappa alt with lifetime warranty. It had been going along strong for about a year and this morning it sounded like the bearings took a dump. Get the replacement on and its showing low 13's at start up and its dipping into the high twelves after about a 20 minute drive. Might be time to...

    Swaybar endlinks for lowered car?

    Any certain ones I should look at for a car on H&R race springs with no isos? I read a couple older threads about using shorter ones for lowered cars but the links to the parts were expired. I would re use the stock stuff but the bushings were kind of crusty.

    10w30 amsoil ss to 0w40?

    Last year I got a oil analysis on my 10w30 amsoil ss and everything was fine except it sheared down to a 20 weight. Was thinking about trying the 0w40 ss or would I be better off sticking with what I got? My car probably sees less than 2k miles a year but a lot of pulls to redline and gets...

    Going with a Napa alternator.

    Stock alt has been struggling here lately. Voltage has been dropping from mid 13's to sometimes mid to low 12's on a decent drive. Started it today and mid 11's. Don't really have money for a fancy alt right now so I'm going parts store. How often are people having to change them out?

    Phantom engine knock

    Started the car up to go for a drive and it was knocking bad and was consistent with rpm. Shut the car off and started it again and the noise is gone, car runs and drives fine. I have been running sportsman 8 ply front skinnies and I have to drive them up on a few sheets of carpet because they...

    Why do headers, ported heads, and cams show such little gains?

    I've always heard that these are sound mods and really aren't very effective. They show big gains on pushrod stuff so why not a 4 valve? Most of the stuff I've researched goes back a few years so maybe R&D has gotten better? I might be looking at a rebuild soon and pretty much ruled those three...

    Amsoil atf issues

    Recently put this in my t56 and it's not liking it at all at higher rpm's. Before amsoil ATF I had cheap non synthetic merc 3 in there as reccomended by the shop that built the trans and never had a problem. Anyone else have issues with a particular type of trans oil?

    Bias ply's for roll racing?

    Was just wondering if it would slow the car down as opposed to radials. Right now I'm running my 15x4's in front and my 315 555r's on 10.5 replicas in back. The replica rims and 315's are a lot heavier than my slicks and ponys but I wonder if the bias ply rears will have any negative effects...
