Yeah it's a whole thing. But when you work 50+ hours a week sometimes it's all you have time for. My wife is on a $1 McChicken kick these days.

Talk to me when you hit 350K. You'll still want to keep her if your left knee can deal with the clutch. That's why I blew my right knee. Hilarious :lol: I always say an item is worth what someone will pay for it. A dose of herceptin chemotherapy costs $42k. Charge what you think it's worth or what ...

Re: Smoking dipstick, could it be bad rings?

Don't send the oil fumes into the air cleaner before the MAF I was thinking a fresh elbow off the plastic intake before the throttle body. Full suction ahead. That idea is full of hot air and really sucks (vapors :D ). Do you think that overtime it might gum up the intake valves? Yes I do. But it's...

Re: Smoking dipstick, could it be bad rings?

Sorry if it seems like we are piling on, we aren't!! I hope you can get it fixed without too much hassle. 0. If you use quality line and a hard elbow like in tryingbe's post, there will not be a kink. Guaranteed! Doing that will eliminate this as a possible issue (you will be able to recall what li...

Re: Smoking dipstick, could it be bad rings?

Sorry if it seems like we are piling on, we aren't!! I hope you can get it fixed without too much hassle. ... I cannot recall if I used heater hose or fuel line. I made the line slightly too long so there wouldn't be a kink, but not so long that it bunched up. Now after 20,000 miles who knows if th...

Re: 850 oddities and questions

Hi I have a 96 850 base now, and I’m trying to sort out a few oddities as follows: 1. Cigarette lighter is functional, but I’ve tried two plug in USB chargers and neither will work. Do these only function as a way to heat the cigarette lighting element? If so, what is a work around to get phone cha...

Re: Massive Coolant Loss- What To Do?

I agree as well with the consensus as well. I had this exact situation happen to me (except I was at work and was on my way back to pickup some more pizzas). What I did was grab some 5/8" heater hose bypass the heater core to make a U, Fill the rezzy and got back to delivering. I felt like mcguyver ...

Re: Mishimoto universal Radiator Fan for replacing 9497929 (1994-2000)

I don't think I could have made that more complicated if I had tried. Why they didn't just use two relays, one common 12V supply, and then ECU logic to close the relays will remain a Swedish mystery. I have no idea. Seems like it would be most logical to have like you said a single wire leave the r...

Re: Help choosing a project (within these^ models)

Thanks for asking this question. I came into this section just to look for the answer to this. I see lots of 960's for sale around $1000 where I live, whereas 850's are sitting around $2500-3000. At least asking price...
