PS fluid leaking from steering box

Leaking fluid from the top of the steering box/pump on the rack and pinion. There is a rebuilding kit available for the rack but really just need the seals at the top of the box but probably have to remove it altogether. At least if that solves it i won't need a realignment by reinstalling my unit. ...

Re: Airbag removal 05-07

Airbag removal 05-07

Haven't been able to remove the drivers airbag after disconnecting the battery and removing the little inspection panel on the bottom of the wheel. There seems to be two spring clips that look like they have to be pushed down towards the center of the column but they are very hard to compress. I'm n...

Re: Worst gas mileage

Just a guess but if you replaced the plugs and didn't get a good seal on the intake manifolds gaskets for the rear plug it could effect your mileage although it should cause a "leaner" mixture. I think that would trigger a code also so as I say its just a guess.

Steering wheel/airbag removal

Found the thread regarding removing the airbag by pushing the two semi circular clips upward to release the airbag but they seem very strong so that it's extremely difficult to do so. Even though I disconnected the battery and pulled the fuse I really don't want to be too aggressive on pounding or p...

Re: ABS Pump Replacement

I haven't done one but what is happening to make you change it? I'm having an issue with my trans, axle, or ABS so I'm searching for clues before I post it.

Re: warm a/c while driving in the city

I just replaced the scroll valve and recharged according to the ac label with 1lb-13 oz. and it runs cool while moving but not at idle. I don't have any rear air but do have dual controls for driver and passenger but that's not considered "rear" air is it? At idle I am getting 65lbs on low side and ...
