  1. [Engine] Thank you both. I had wondered about that...

    Thank you both. I had wondered about that reference in the manual and whether it meant it was the torque the starter generated and not the mounting bolt torque. All good. I'll go with the 27 ft lb...
  2. [Engine] Hey Dana, Do you recall what torque value you...

    Hey Dana,

    Do you recall what torque value you used on the three mounting bolts for the starter? I don't see it listed in the manual. I have the starter reinstalled, but haven't torqued down the...

    I'm well past the point of no return on my crankshaft pulley plus other stuff work. The new pulley is in and it went pretty well. Took the fascia and muffler off as well as the alternator and...

    Front license plate should narrow down where it was slightly. Not being able to read it, lol. Just that it had one.

    First thing you do is tape the edges of the stainless once you get the panels off. This will save you from going to the ER to have them sew your finger back on.

    I suspect it will be obvious what...

    Making more progress. The nut came off a LOT easier than I expected it to. First try with the impact gun and it spun it loose. Big difference having all that other stuff out of the way and getting...

    And it begins!!! Whooohoo! Call me strange, but I look at the filthy mess I now have good access to and all I can think of is how I'm going to enjoy taking my sweet time cleaning things up and...

    If you remove that fused jumper entirely, what do the ends of the spade connectors look like? The reason I ask is I had one of those in my car and noticed a little melty melty, but caught it sooner...

    Mine is abysmal looking too. EDIT: and upside down apparently too. My computer has decided to be a dick at the moment, sorry about that.

    I don't have one right yet, but will put an order in for...

    Looking back at my notes (aka LARGE spreadsheet, lol), I got the positive cable from DMCH and the negative and jump start cable from DMC Europe. More often than not, I lump parts together in orders...

    Actually, I think I had one thing confused already. I was thinking the black cable terminated on the engine mount, but that's not right. It terminates on the trailing arm bolt bracket on the...

    I was hoping that'd be the case. I can see at least one plastic clip tucked up in there that I can move the cable off of beforehand.

    Is there a preferred direction to pull them out from? I...

    [Electrical] Battery cables replacement

    I've got replacement battery cables I'd like to put in. The black ground, the red positive and the red jump post lead as well. Even have a new rubber boot to put over the ends of the red ones where...

    Cosmetic mostly. My old one was pretty grungy. And I wasn't convinced it was free of tiny pin hole leaks along the length. I fought ATF leaks for ages and that was one thing I wanted to change and...

    I'm of the opinion that getting all systems and features working as intended is the best approach to getting the peppiness back. Fuel system being the first, transmission a close second.

    False alarm on my end. It was back to fluttering the next time out. So it wasn't that grounding wire on the ballast resistor bracket. I suspect you're right about it being related to something loose...

    Ok, so I've had my car for 14 years and still don't feel great about taking a good ATF level reading. For the same things you've mentioned. It's just harder than it seems it should be to see what...
  19. [Electrical] Bouncing / fluttering tach problem solved!

    Well, giddyup. Today I figured out a small issue that had been around on my car for a while.

    My tach needle would bounce from time to time. Flutter even. It wasn't what the engine was doing...

    As said, the cars were meant for the US. There were some modifications needed to be able to sell it in other countries, Canada for example.

    There were ~100 cars pulled off the production line and...

    I consider there to be about 40 litres of working volume in the tank. If I fill up when I'm at 1/4 tank, it takes about 32 litres. Give or take a bit. There are 3.785 litres per gallon if you want...

    Sounds like the filter is plugged to me.

    I would not trust what you think or hear or feel in regards to what gear the car is in without making up one of those diagnostic light contraptions to tell...

    Check the usual electrical suspects starting with the ballast resistor connections. If it wasn't hard to start before your fuel system work, you probably just bumped something loose.

    Well, I think if anyone wanted it to look the best possible, they would be following your lead :) I'll pick-up some of that tape you mention. I have RTV too and you're right about it being sloppy...
