Re: Should I change trans and diff fluid?

I just did my first rear differential fluid change at 257,000 miles. Fluid did not look so bad but it did have a lot of metal shavings and the magnet was full of shavings and sludge. I used used AMALIE ELIXIR full synthetic 75W90 for $8 a quart ...so far so good cant be that!

The end of my 05 timing chain story

About a month ago and at 257,000 miles my timing chain tensioner shoes finally gave way and really got very loud. I drove about 15 miles home and parked it. Called dealer and they gave me an estimate for a complete chain kit replacement so I said ok. Drove the car there another 15 miles being afraid...

My 05 has it. Maybe late model ones got deleted? I like it and helps a lot on those days facing the sun.

Not sure how many amps. fog lights draw but could be normal, these alternators have a feature called "load response control" which help alleviate torque on the engine when certain electrical loads are seen by the alternator therefore applying a smooth volt- amp transition no matter how heavy the loa...

I used a gates and did not have good luck , the squeal came back after 20k miles and I did have the updated tensioner. Went with a Dayco belt and so far no squeal.

It is not very hard, all you need is a 10mm wrench. You will need to work from the top of the engine and kind of lay on it while feeling by hand. The plug removal is a little tricky, search youtube for some good videos. The driver side is easier than passenger side, replace both and go with oem ones...

I have this same issue. youcan buy tin or window deffoger repair kit and fix the the metal traces. Another alternative would be a new outside antenna. If you do so make sure it plugs into the amplifier first (#1 in diagram) otherwise you will end up with poor reception. Last would be to buy a new in...
