I have been told that Irish Spring repells these little bastards, I put a couple bars through the food procesor and sprinkled it around the engine compartment, we'll see if it really works.

I have...

That valley under the intake is where I found tons of crap packed in. Once I blew it out enough to see the knock sensors (after being led there by the code) I noticed the wire chewed off the sensor...

P0325, I hate chipmunks.

I live in the woods and dont drive it often, during the summer I'm usually on my vmax instead but I still use the car for days when I work. I found chipmunk nests under the hood, how resourceful...

When I sell I prepare the car I sell it clean. The exception was an 88 Samurai rust bucket that I picked up from a local car lot for $200, drove it home, parked it, took a few pics and sold it where...

I'm amazed at the number of sellers that cant be bothered to run a vacuum or even clear out all the Monster cans and mc donalds garbage. I even occasionally see one with a gross sticky child or an...

Generally speaking, when dealing with any particular model the cheapest route is to buy the nicest one you can afford.

Since you said long distance cruiser I would take a look at the 98+ just for...

It engages very quickly when put in any gear, even when stone cold. It feels like a new transmission but sounds like an old Ford PS pump. I initially thought it might have the wrong fluid in it,...

I went to town and gave it some hell through the gears and after about 30 miles checked again and it's at the top of the HOT mark. This dipstick fits the car perfectly so I'm 99% sure its correct,...

I have been in the field working and had plenty of time to read and think this through, a transmission conversion is to much of a pain in the a$$. Ruled out trading in, I have my $ tied up in other...

I just got done reading some on this, sounds like a lot of work with different ECU for 98+. If it were just an issue of 5th gear servo I'm sure I could find some way to make it speed sensitive but...

I fear you are correct. I cant trace the sound well, its like it carries all over the underside. I have been driving it since my join date and it has not gotten any worse so I think it will likely...

I got under it for cold start this morning. It's very hard to localize the sound but it's almost like it's coming from the rear or driver side of the engine compartment as much as trans, but it's...

Update:

I got some time to play with it this morning, it took most of another qt so it was nearly 5qts total.

Cold start, noise still there, maybe very slightly less but still annoying. When...

I just got back from a 5 state road trip, we were hoping the LS would be ready but we took wifeys 03 Acura CL instead, it turned out better than expected, it eats 90mph at barely 2500 rpm but lacks...

Thanks guys,

I dont see any leaks and there was nothing on the ground so it must be a combination of sitting and maybe being low before. We're leaving for a 5 state road trip this morning and...

Transmission groan/whine. Strainer clean.

Hey all.

I have a 96 LS400 w/200k mi and since taking ownership I have been chasing a groan. I installed a new PS pump/flush with Dextron last year and It's now pretty smooth and quiet under the...

I'm addicted, no doubt. I often drive my Samurai instead but only because the top comes off and I can go literally anywhere. I drove an ES and arrived at the conclusion that Lexus was over rated, but...
