Re: Bought a lemon 2002 Safari

* SES light was flashing * I just assumed it was well taken care of. * it doesn't feel like anything is wrong. * As I got to my office noticed that a whirring/whistling sound was coming anytime the accelerator is pressed. * Mechanic calls me and tells me that it's leaking everywhere (but when I loo...

Re: Hissing sound from steering column?

I paid a little closer attention today... mine (in my 92) primarily "hisses" when I make right turns while idling... as soon as I step on the gas the hiss goes away. No hiss on left turns. My gear-box is OEM factory original.

My JTR mounts haven't broken (after several years)... perhaps I installed them correctly!?? << :lol:
But seriously, sounds like you built a GREAT mount!
Your project is coming along VERY nicely! :mrgreen:

Re: Engine quits after a bit. Alternator? Battery? Wiring?

you need a DMM. VOM's work too. It was the Alternator, the battery was fine. The Idler Pulley was shot, thus the belt was shot, thus the alternator was burned out. Had it fixed, back on the road! I never heard of a bad belt causing an alternator to "burn out" :shock: Regardless, glad you ...

Re: best tranny cooler

I have the Hayden style cooler in mine.
It is mounted far from the condenser coil... no issues.
(My radiator does not have a trans cooler)

I chose this style for it's performance, strength, and reliability... don't want a rock busting my trans cooler.

It seems like I don't have the bar clocked right but I go one more notch up it is to tight and the next notch down makes it sag it's the shorter bar too.. Notch???

Re: Hissing sound from steering column?

Mine hisses a little too... I think it's somewhat normal.
Either that, or I have snakes too. :D
I know I don't have air in my system.. it was bled with new pump.
I'm changing my gear box for another reason (already have replacement) ... so will see if that's where the hissing was coming from.

I've never seen anything on my systems frost up when filling. Clutch engages, compressor shaft turns, without gauges you have no way of knowing if the compressor is actually compressing anything... ^^ ALL OF THIS!!!

Re: Affects of lift with larger tires

But seriously, 2" of lift doesn't really change any of the interference points... which are in the turns, and not the top of the fender. Cutting the fender cover is extremely easy to do... you can even cleanly cut it with a razor-knife. Interference isn't just caused by tire size... it's also t...

Re: Affects of lift with larger tires

Rule of thumb in my experience is 1mpg less per tire size up. I hadn't thought of it this way... but I would somewhat agree. It certainly has been my experience! Not only will taller tires reduce fuel economy (and power on the ground)... but so will added "wind load" from sitting taller. ...

Re: Anyone Using the Energizer AGM Battery?

The #78 Duracell Lead-Acid have 115 min reserve. The #78 Duracell AGM's have 120 min reserve (not really enough difference to matter)... but with somewhat less CCA. But like some of us have discovered... AGM's don't seem to last... and possibly for good reason. Your results may vary... Cheers! Edit:...

Re: Anyone Using the Energizer AGM Battery?

So, out of my own curiosity... I took a little inventory tonight: * Duracell (#78) in my 92 (pictured above) * Duracell (#34) in my wife's car * Duracell (#78) in my 2000 van * Energizer (#24) in my 71 Cutlass (from 2006) With the exception of the much older Energizer, they are all a minimum few yea...

Re: Anyone Using the Energizer AGM Battery?

My Sam's Club sells Duracell. They used to sell Energizer. How ironic! :mrgreen: I've been running their batteries (both brands) in numerous vehicles for many years, with NO issues whatsoever!

Re: Rear brakes not functioning, fronts doing all the work

I get the feeling that the mechanics hands are tied, can't suggest or do something outside of their licensing or alter the existing system. What do you think? Sorry to say, I think you may need another mechanic. I would NEVER accept that the vehicle can't be brought back to full and completely work...
