on this topic, is it possible to replace the diaphragm with a part from a used cover, assuming the part can be removed from a donor vehicle and reattached? also I've seen the pvc oil trap covers on ebay or parts sites for between $60 to $175. this is a plastic cover.

Re: 2005 xc 70 vibration - 220k

vibration is only on acceleration. brakes are good.

because the vibration is more in the car body, and seats, and not the steering wheel, i think it is the prop shaft /center carrier bearing.

to cold here in ny to diagnose it right now, it's 0 degrees.

pipe is cracked on lower half of pipe where it outlets from the converter apparently from the weight of the converter and age.

1998 glt slow to fire after sitting

After sitting from Friday to Monday, twice, the motor did not start. It cranks over fine but no fire. After I try 5-8 times and it finally fires, runs rough for few seconds, and then I go all week with good normal starts each morning. Any idea what this is all about? It happens during dry weather.
