Thanks for the input Klaus. But I'm why get the non-turbo kit when my car has a turbo? And I'll be sure to get a good manifold gasket. My fault, I missed it when you said GLT and assumed non-turbo. Three tricks: The injectors do not need to be removed from the manifold, but if you do, the top of th...

Re: Work on First Car

I'm getting my license in a few days and I'll be driving a '96 850 non-turbo. Its been sitting in the garage for a few months and the only action its seen during then has been getting jumped so I can move it in and out of the garage to get to different things. It needs some work before I can drive ...

There are 2 kits, make sure you get the non-turbo one. The manifold gasket that FCP supplies is garbage and I suggest reusing the one that is on the car or getting a good one from the dealer ($20). The hose clamps from FCP are the new fangled kind that need special clamp pliers, and do not over-tigh...

Front window guide for 850

I finally found out why the driver door rattled when being closed. The rear guide broke off and was just lying there. I pulled it out and the bottom attachment point was stress cracked and broken off. Any suggestions where I can get a new one? I guess I will need to remove the motor to get the repla...

A "one hitter" is a small bag of drugs or a single dose. Not normally enough to get one in trouble by itself, but if the polic4e pull you over for any legal infraction and they find drugs or any delivery devices, you will spend at least the night in jail. You will also need expensive legal counsel. ...

Sometime it is just the injector electric plug gets fouled up and needs a little cleaning. Also check the wires for chafing. The plastic shielding on the injector wires leaves a lot to be desired,
If the injector is truly dirty, injector cleaner in a bottle will not work. It is #2 injector.

There are 4 or 5 bolts that hold the dash to the firewall. Be careful about over tightening them, they break easily. The numbers refer to torque settings, or how much muscle to apply to the wrench. More than that will break them. Replacement of those bolts is rough, the dash has to come out. Now, yo...

First check your battery connections. If they were dirty when you reconnected, there will not be a solid connection. Sounds like you disconnected the red wire instead of the ground wire to the battery.

The Swede is correct, you are liable. So... clean out the car, completely. Include removing the rear seat cushion and the spare tire (good time to check pressure). Other than coins, throw everything away. If it is illegal, use a public dumpster, not your garbage can.
