I'm going to tap into the PCV line. It's big and fat. The other vacuum lines look too skinny.

I have 3 lexi here. 2 parts cars. All the ABS sensors just popped out, no fuss, no muss. I suspect the farther north you go, the rustier the car, the more problems you'll have.

As I understand it they don't talk OBD2 which means at least in VA, they won't pass emissions. VA does emissions testing by talking to the OBD2 port and asking the ECU whether it passes emissions or...

It takes 10-20 amps to run the car and > 100 amps to start the engine. Your battery could be on death's door and the lights will still come on. If your alternator isn't charging the battery, it'll...

Supra tranny doesn''t say much. A supra manual is worth $4500 and supra auto-tranny is worth $400. If it doesn't have a USDM ECU, it probably won't pass emissions.

The swaybar bushing should fit pretty tightly on the sway bar. If you can move the bar up and down in the bushings, you need new or different bushings.

Jesus, you just jumping whatever wires you want without looking it up first?

To me it would mean you have a crappy set of wheels.

Before you switch the wheel bearing, you can throw a torque wrench on the suspect wheel bearing and re-tighten it. If it's loose-ish as in not...

On a 400, it's mounted in the trunk on the wall that supports the rear seat. Not sure on a 300 might be the same place. On the left side as you look into the trunk. I believe it's covered by the...

I'd put a charger on the battery and charge it back up to full. Then try again. If the starter is clicking, it's not likely to be the alarm. I'd check the battery and ground cables too.

You're depending on instruments but, not making direct measurements. Fill it with fuel, drive it, see how much fuel you use.

I'd fill it up and see if the gauge is reading right. If you really are using that much gas, you probably shouldn't drive it because you'll kill the cat's (if you haven't already). I'm thinking I'd...

I'd compare the old to the new intermediate shaft. If they're the same length and it used to be connected, the problem has to be the column or how you mounted the rack. Are you sure it's the same...

Loosen the bolt closest to the firewall then tug on the intermediate shaft. I think you have the intermediate shaft plugged too deep into the coupler. Don't take the bolt all the way out. Just...

You know, the LS V8 swap guys remove the OEM unit and replace it with a Camary system. They don't have ABS aftward but, they didn't spend $1900 for a new master cylinder either.
