Re: CVT Issue When Cold

What bolts did you use to replace and where did you locate them?

Re: Aftermarket radio/factory DvD

I would just ground the DVD wire and be done with it, myself. Take you probably 15 minutes total.

Re: Aftermarket radio/factory DvD

Get rid of the crappy Dual stereo, and go to a junkyard to find the stereo you need. Or you can pull the Dual (VERY easy) and ground the DVD wire and the DVD player 'should' then work for you.

Re: 07 FWD 163K miles

I use Prestone Dot 3...but it makes no difference as long as it is Dot 3 and fresh, not sitting on a shelf in your garage for years...I forget the caliper...whatever Auto Zone had at the time that was cheap.

Re: 07 FWD 163K miles

These are what I'm putting on...you WILL need the kit to turn the pistons back in (except for your new one that is already set) https://www.ebay.com/itm/ABN-Front-and-Rear-Caliper-Brake-Rewind-and-Piston-Compression-18-Piece-Tool-Kit/231569263505?epid=1611832954&hash=item35ea9a8b91:g:gQ4AAOSw1RVaXmI...

Re: 07 FWD 163K miles

Easy peasy. I forgot. I changed out one rear caliper but only because I f'd up the original when screwing the piston back in. Go to Harbor Freight and but one of these: https://www.harborfreight.com/automotive-motorcycle/brakes/brake-fluid-bleeder-92924.html Then buy the caliper and put it on. Takes...

Re: 07 FWD 163K miles

Battery, headlights, brake lights, front/rear brakes (getting ready to do the rear again, 1st time in 7 years), tires, struts, both front axles (just because), tune-up, CVT fluid changed twice, oil changes, starter, 1 rear wheel hub assembly. Off the top of my head, that is pretty much it. Paid $870...

Re: Deep vibration at 1300-1700 RPM

Vibration...Check the passenger (right) side axle support and that the 2 bolts holding it, are actually there. I went through new tires, new rotors, new LEFT side axle, new struts, etc...all to find that the 2 bolts for the shaft mid-point support were gone and the axle, essentially, was just floppi...

Re: Heartbreaking hassle -CVT tranny problems after swap

I just bought a transaxle for my garden tractor off eBay. Was the only one I could find for sale in the country (used anyway). $1075 shipped. If you got a CVT for $1000 in working order, you made out like a bandit in my opinion.

Re: Hi All, need some help. The other end of line inside the tank...

You certain it is a fuel issue or is it a low RPM issue?
