    If the Primary Pressure is too high it is either a restricted return line or the Primary Pressure Regulator needs to be adjusted. Once the shop can get that set they should recheck the Control...

    The mixture screw should only be adjusted after making sure everything else is as close to perfect as you can get it. Adjusting the screw can't compensate for worn spark plugs, vacuum leaks, dirty...

    The repair of the rear sunshade, aka rear louvre, is pretty straightforward. Instead of epoxy a better repair is fiberglass and the addition of the metal "sandwich" or plates will keep it from...

    Before taking the switch apart I would check that you have the wires connected to the switch correctly. If you do take the mode switch apart you should probably rebuild the vacuum section while you...

    I don't see why not. I don't recall the washers being hardened though, at least not the OEM washers.

    Actually the only leather is the seating surfaces (not the sides or the backs) the pull straps on the doors, the steering wheel and on the 5-speeds, the shifter boot. All the rest of the interior is...

    Surging (once the idle system activates and the ECU goes into "closed loop") is a sign of vacuum leaks and/or a sticky/dirty idle motor. Can also be a sign of dirty injectors and time for a tune-up....

    I just got a pair from PJ Grady and they do have the nice "slow down" at the top of the stroke so the doors don't bounce when they open. They cost more than Rock Auto. Figure if you get 5 years out...

    To just get a few parts done (plated/anodized) is very costly. The vendors do large batches so it is more economical for them. Your best bet if you want plated calipers is to just use one of the...

    You want to aim for 35-45 dwell but if you have vacuum leaks you will still be running rich. Adjusting the mixture screw is the very last thing you do after fixing any vacuum leaks, cleaning the...

    Make sure you are using the correct bolts in the correct spots. If you put too long a bolt in the wrong place it will feel like it is tightening up but it is really just bottoming out. Make sure the...

    If it exhaust is leaking it is most likely the gasket. Just do them both. You should order a stud kit too.

    Unless you convert to headers, deleting the cat isn't going to make much of a difference except that you will notice the exhaust will be a bit louder. In New Jersey they actually look to see that the...

    Most people who have done this use just an adjustable lower link. Seems to work just fine. This will affect Thrust Angle (aka rear toe) so you really should get a 4 wheel alignment and make sure you...

    It is not just about how it looks, it affects handling and tire life too. Cutting and welding the lower control arms to make them adjustable is not all that hard but if you can't do it or get it done...

    It should not leak once you fill the system with water. Water will cause the gasket to swell and stop leaking. The air is leaking through the paper. Try using water and tell us what happens.

    You really do have to pressure test the cooling system with liquid inside. If you don't want a mess just use water, you can dump it out and refill with anti-freeze after you find and fix any leaks....

    Connect the two wires that go to the "O" switch together and (with the ignition key on) the fans should run. Put the wires back on the switch and heat the car up. If the fans don't run replace the...

    When you pressure test you are supposed to fill the system with liquid (water and anti-freeze) and then pressurize the liquid. The liquid can seal tiny holes that air can leak out of and the pump...

    Really should not be necessary if everything is working and set up right. I have also seen cables frozen (stuck) so you are only really pulling on one caliper. Make sure both cables move freely and...

    I don't recall any production change in the rear suspension. Lowering the rear will cause excessive camber. The fix is to either make the lower links adjustable with some cutting and welding or...
