    Huh. I put a Battery Tender connector in my engine compartment and have just been plugging and unplugging the cable without worrying about unplugging the tender itself. It seems odd that it would...

    Just curious, but do you have issues with all the exhaust in the garage? It looks cooler to have my cars facing forwards out of the garage (I mean, that's what really matters :) ), but I don't want...

    I had exactly the same problem, and a few months ago I discovered MagCode ports. I bought one with the spring-loaded cover (from eBay, like you, shipped from Germany, I believe -- I didn't have any...

    That is very similar to what I was thinking ó very nice! I build a mount for a cheap Windows tablet for a temporary MegaSquirt dashboard in the same place. Since I already moved my air vents, Iím...

    I went for a trip the other day, and lost the ability to shift the car out of Park. The shifter just moved freely, but it wouldn't shift. Got it towed home, got under the car, and found that the...

    Also, if you get one with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, you can use your phone for GPS nav but you get to see the it displayed on the head unit's screen. I quite like it with CarPlay, and it...

    These units seem to be referred to as "modular", and Pioneer has only a few models. The DMH-C2550NEX and DMH-C550NEX are the older models, which are described briefly here:...

    Iíd say thatís a good way to go. The unit I want has a floating screen separate from the main unit, so you can mount it pretty much anywhere, but itís not in the $200 range (or, you know, actually...

    Well this is embarrassing. I spent twenty minutes today trying to get two different laptops to connect. I finally tugged on the MS box and the DB38 just fell out. Plugged it back in and it fired...

    I realized I should be more clear about the symptoms: The starter cranks, but at no point does the engine actually fire -- it just cranks and cranks and cranks. There's never a point where even one...

    When I got to the store, I turned off the engine then immediately tried to start it again. I cranked about 10 times before I decided to just go shopping.

    I think I was in the store for 15 minutes...

    This is my 3.0L conversion. I went to the grocery store and got there without issue, but when I put the car in Park (automatic transmission) the RPMs went up to over 2000. I turned it off and tried...

    About a week ago my friend and I pulled the transmission, rebuilt it in the basement, and we re-installed it over the weekend. Here's what we found:

    We found that piece, re-installed it, and it shifts just fine now. While I do think the solenoids were seizing, they were never going to work without the missing piece. At least I'm back on the...

    So it appears that when we put the transmission together we forgot an adaptor that goes from the governor to a helical gear inside the transmission. Which I read as the transmission thinking that...

    Update from a test drive:
    - Still only have first gear.
    - Removing fuse 13 gives me only third gear (or at least itís not first gear).

    Iíll see if I can find further information on testing the...

    After a night of soaking, the solenoid balls now move pretty easily by hand. When hooked up to the governor and powered in drive, they can no longer be turned ó exactly as expected. When I pull fuse...

    Huh; I was so focused on the operation that I didnít notice that the ball only spun freely when not energized. Since I canít spin the ball by hand when not energized, perhaps they are seized after...
