    A little more stopping power,please?

    Letting you in on what I did to this pickup to make it ' a little better'? Even tho it had new front hoses, front calipers and pads, new drums,shoes ,wheel cylinders and hardware in the rear, I noticed the rear shoes were only making contact with the drums 50 maybe 60 percent of their surface...

    A little more stopping power,please?

    Billr I haven't tried the abs like you said. Doing some other things to it and can't drive it for a day or two yet

    A little more stopping power,please?

    Just found this here tonight from Summit. Smaller the master cylinder bore the more pressure at the caliper/ cylinder. http://www.onallcylinders.com/2013/10/29/video-master-cylinder-bore-size-affects-braking/

    A little more stopping power,please?

    Thanks for all the replies Been new rotors and calipers with pads put on the front recently. Also new rear drums I see but haven't pulled them to see if there are new wheel cylinders and shoes. Pedal height is good and things are firm. No pulling or grabbing or leaks. This pickup gets used for...

    A little more stopping power,please?

    Wanting a little more stopping power on a 97 K1500 Chevy pickup 5.7. I know there are a lot of things involved to make this happen, but see there were 2 different bore size master cylinders used. 1-1/8 and 1-1/4. Am I thinking right about the physics here, the smaller the bore the more power...

    Yukon '10. 5.3 w/p0011

    End of the day problem comes in. CEL on and code p0011. Noticed that when driving the variance and demanded follow each other exactly, but the actual is at 0 or 1 degree all the time , on the cam vvt. Haven't had much time to check anything much more, but wondered what you guys would have to...

    Need a little help on a P0014 code

    Don't know if this is the end,but for now I've stopped. Customer didn't want me to go any farther. Spent a lot of time researching this out testing, trying, scanning, reading. But the conclusion we came to, was to probably follow the bulletin about the stretched chains. Then when we would have...

    Need a little help on a P0014 code

    Billr http://www.autoserviceprofessional.com/article/91744/hyundai-cvvt-oil-control-valve And no I haven't tried disconnecting the solenoid and checking the pattern of the sensor. I have tried swapping the intake and exhaust solenoids with no change to the pattern to the B1 Exhaust solenoid...

    Need a little help on a P0014 code

    Just an update what was tried today. Since junk in,means junk out, and I don't know why yet all these jumpy numbers on the scanner I see this week and a stranger than normal pattern of the PWM signal to the bank 1 Exhaust cam solenoid, I thought it may be the ECM. Maybe it was a mistake getting...

    Need a little help on a P0014 code

    Bills I swapped two of the solenoids and still get a very erratic pattern on bank 1 Exhaust solenoid feed.

    Need a little help on a P0014 code

    Kev I haven't gotten the ok from the owner to get into checking end play. That looks like maybe the next to do? Has set code P0017 a few times. So could be something I would find 'in there' for that code coming up? I'll keep you all updated here

    Need a little help on a P0014 code

    Sorry fellow mechanics, but I just had to post again a little more on the Saturn. Watching scope patterns of the cam sensors and and bank 1 and 2 solenoids. Really don't see anything different from one cam sensor to the other but there is a huge difference on the patterns of bank 1 and bank 2...

    Need a little help on a P0014 code

    Today a strong engine flush was run thru the engine for 20 minutes. Oil and filter new now and still no change, setting P0014 code on a test drive. Doing the cam actuator test with the Modis, I can command the actuator to 0, 5,10,15 or 20. Bank 2 will hold the desired and actual steady. This...

    Need a little help on a P0014 code

    Back again, don't know what the Outlook will be for this Saturn ( maybe the answer is out of this world!). Tried to follow the instructions in the TSB. Oil pressure is 33 lbs warm at idle, 75 lbs @ 2000 rpm'. Checked wiring and resistances at the ECM to the bank 1 Exhaust cam solenoid. That...

    Need a little help on a P0014 code

    2007 Saturn Outlook 3.7. 140000 miles. The P0014 code keeps coming back after clearing, always within a mile of driving. I have checked the oil level (oil gets changed quite regularly) have replaced the rear bank 1 exhaust solenoid and the sensor for this cam. One thing I notice when checking...
