    P1000 on 2001 Ford F-150 5.4L

    Now I know I am going to sound like an arsehole, but you need to heed step 14. Most times, ppl cannot get a monitor drive cycle to clear because they are not heeding the evap `bypass` time. And you only have 30 minutes to do the actual drive cycle, and if you f that up, another 8hrs or so will...

    Sonic coolant consumption

    As per billr's advice, call your local autozone if you have one close by to you, they should have a kit that looks like this to loan out, it should have the adapter you need for that sonic/korean thing. If not, google loan a tool programs near...

    alternator charging, no voltage regulation

    Well, found the brn/gry wire for field control. I installed an external voltage regulator. No joy, only leaves me to believe that the resistor blew in the "new" reman unit. Will be installing another alt tomorrow. That is my only logical conclusion. Wish I could disassemble the reman unit to...

    alternator charging, no voltage regulation

    I know what I will do tomorrow morning, knew that from the get go once I found the flaw in both data bases. AT LEAST i KNOW PIN 2 IS OK, TRACING BACK THE 40 WIRE, shyte, hit caps locks, yeah, tracing that will be fun, but a must do, and if my boss gives me grief, I will just tell him to put on...

    alternator charging, no voltage regulation

    I was able by the skin on my rin tin tin to just remove the connector at rear of alt to do ohm checks.

    alternator charging, no voltage regulation

    I could have a fusible link that blew on the sense circuit, but I have no way of knowing that since I can't locate the pin in cavity 40. I removed cap of C2 connector, no wire there at all. Just non existent. Does any one here have a proper chrysler diagram? I was under the impression alldata...

    alternator charging, no voltage regulation

    Of note, I notice there is a resistor in the alternator for the field control. I was tempted to call for another alternator since I know we put a reman unit back in may. But since I cannot confirm the integrity of the field/EVR external circuit pins 2 and 40, I am iffy of just throwing another...

    alternator charging, no voltage regulation

    Hi guy's, another problem at work, this one has me stumped a bit. Databases are contradicting each other. I have a chrysler 200, year 2015, engine is a 3.6l. It is a Police sleeper with an auxiliary system, but even with breaker open for the auxiliary power tripped, still no voltage regulation...

    2002 toyota camry p1346

    I would say it not oil driven, it is kind of a ratchet/pawl type like tensioner, so either internally spring driven or internal hydraulic, but NOT driven by oil pressure. I would say 1/4inch slack between two cams is normal.

    Rear disc brake problems 2010 Camry

    There is a HUGE difference between this link and the one I posted above, mostly the price, but also the mention "HIGH compression". One is 12 bucks a fitting, while the other is 4$ for two. Duh, which one do you think fits for brake lines...

    Rear disc brake problems 2010 Camry

    @jd, yes you read right, something like this is most appropriate for steel lines. Most sites will say only good for fuel lines and such, thats just cuz some idiot on YOUR congress fell prey to another idiot lobbyist. https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-800-202-High-Compression-Union/dp/B00HFHDQFC...
