    Confused about proper procedure to do compression test

    I found there were better ways to adjust the points on GM Chevy V engines than using a dwell meter. Turn in the points until the engine just starts to skip and back off a half turn and power brake the AT and adjust to highest stall point. For MT we would do snap throttle until you could get the...

    2002 Toyota Highlander_Transmission Fluid Leak

It's either the converter seal, most likely, or the seal around the pump cover, maybe, or the converter shell itself although that's hardly likely as when the welds break around converter shell they pour...

    1997 Buick Century 4t65-e no first gear

    Nothing under the control arm. You want the arm to be able to move down which allows it to separate from the joint. You can support the knuckle not the arm.

    1997 Buick Century 4t65-e no first gear

    I have a 5 pound sledge (no full over head swings) I will hold it 18 inches to 2 feet above the rounded end at the front of the control arm and come down hard on it. Usually don't take more than a couple good whacks and it'll pop it out.

    Cat problem?

    That's not a typical O2 sensor. That a wide range sensor that allows for leaner running under cruising conditions. For the Toyota/Lexus Lambda 3.3 is normal.
