If you don't have a dealer handy, NAPA will have the correct size/type washer. I got several a few weeks ago for I think $1.60/ea. They have the the exact OE fitment info (size and construction) and...

Sorry to be abrupt last night. I wrote a more detailed response as I was falling asleep, then the dang ipad dumped it and I could not muster the energy to repeat it.

No.

There is little chance it is "wiring." Unless you let squirrels inside the transmission.

The Haynes manual would not include TC volume; that's only something you have to deal with in a tear down/rebuild (got on on my bench right now!). It is not part of any normal drain/fill. The volume...

I cannot diagnose yours, but I can say that a bad idler pulley and/or tensioner can cause a failed belt very quickly; had it happen to me - thankfully on a non-interference engine.

The root cause...

Did you run the gearshift up and down the gears a few seconds each before checking the fill level?

If not, the level will read artificially high as some valve bodies, journals, clutch packs can be...

My opinion is not "by the book," but matches what I've seen doing belts for two decades.

a) Barring other circumstances, do the belt at the indicated mileage.

b) If the vehicle is operated in...

It sounds like the voltage regulator in the alternator is DOA.

This is not uncommon on newly rebuilt units, particularly from Autozone, or 2nd hand non-rebuilt units.

I did this and it was a bit of a chore.

Mine was the pump as it was squirting a fair bit of fluid out the gasket radially, so clearly the body of the pump was leaking. The car needed to be back...

I do not think there's a real reason to do so. The M1 HM is great, and you can't say the PP is better (or worse). I settled on it for the HM additive package and price/convenience of the 5qt jugs at...

That looks pretty good.

We have an 02 with 240k on it and it has been using PPP 5w-30 (not ultra) and M1 5w-30 HM back and forth the last year. Like you, I can not tell a difference in them; ...
