    2001 Hyundai Tiburon cruise inop

    Just picked up a 2001 Tiburon for my son, and the cruise control is inop. It was also very difficult to start, so I was certain replacing the pads on the clutch pedal and adjusting the clutch switches correctly was going to solve the problem, but that did not work. Or, I should say, noW the car...

    2014 Mazda 5 wiring colors

    May I get the wiring colors for the front turn signal power and grounds in a 2014 Mazda 5 so I don’t have to probe wires please? Note that I do not need the color for the running light. I need to install balance equalizer resistors for LED lighting. Thanks! Fred

    2012 Kia Forte camber bolts

    Ok, I’ll stick ‘em back in and let the alignment shop worry about it. Thanks for the help!

    2012 Kia Forte camber bolts

    I guess the problem I’m having is that once installed, when you turn this bolt, It doesn’t do anything. It just spins. I guess I’m used to the type of strut that has slots on either side and the eccentric is mounted on the outside so that when you turn the bolt it actually moves something by...

    2012 Kia Forte camber bolts

    Good evening, folks! It has now been about 15 years since I've run an alignment rack, and I'm afraid I've got an embarrassing question. On my buddy's Forte, I need to stick in some camber bolts to make some minor corrections post-accident. I picked up some Moog K90474 eccentric bolts that are...

    A few question on Toyota automatic transmissions

    Kev2 posted a link above on how to do it, page 8 starts the section on how to do it without the Toyota scan tool. It's a hectic procedure (as in a complete PITA), but it works.

    A few question on Toyota automatic transmissions

    This didn't go as easily as expected, but it got done. Here's what I learned; 1. Draining the cold fluid into an empty catch pan and measuring the amount would work just fine for a drain and fill. It won't work when dropping the pan; the drain plug is designed in such a manner that it leaves...

    RAV4 coolant drain and fill

    never heard of the issue with the drains. Aren't the O-rings available for them? At any rate, it went smashingly well. filling through the tank was easier than expected, no real purging needed. Thanks guys!

    RAV4 coolant drain and fill

    I'm an overachiever, and don't believe anything that say's it's good for 100k, except the spark plugs. ;) Thanks for looking, sir, it's much appreciated.

    RAV4 coolant drain and fill

    MAKE: Toyota MODEL: RAV4 YEAR: 2013 MILES: 40k ENGINE: 4cyl Hello again! Anything I need to know bout draining and filling the coolant in the RAV4 before I dive in? I know to use the correct Toyota SLLC, but I'm curious where they hid the bleeder valve, if this even has one. I sure don't see...

    Santa Fe hub bearing

    Well, that's a lot less labor than what we were being told, so that's good news. I was hoping for an entire assembly at a reasonable price so the machine shop could be skipped completely; the one you linked still has to be pressed in, so there's no point going that route. Your eBay-fu is...

    Santa Fe hub bearing

    MAKE: Hyundai MODEL: Santa Fe YEAR: 2001 MILES: 200k+ ENGINE: 2.4l Got a friend with an AWD 4 wheel disc brake version of the above vehicle. A rear wheel bearing has failed. Everything I can find indicates it's a press in part only, no assembly available. Does anyone know of a source for an...

    Great, thank you! Any way to locate the torque specs for the filter?

    A few question on Toyota automatic transmissions

    Thanks for the well wishes, JD! Apart from rapidly getting older, all is well, as I hope it is with you. Kev2, thank you for all the intel, that is perfect! I realize the TSB does not apply to my vehicle, but those magnets are cheap and just may be useful, so why not, right? The pan will be off...
