Re: Cooling system flush ???

My 05 also does the same thing if temps outside are 20degF or less... my work commute is 8 miles, if its warmer than 30degF, than usually the temp gauge will go to the middle where it is supposed to be within that 8 miles. I'm ok with this. I feel my coolant visually looks to be in great shape. Also...

Helicopter noise

Just got the noise today, actually I thought I heard it barely a couple weeks back but now it’s a little louder and I can say for sure that it.. How many miles can I expect to go before failure? I have no check engine light yet. I do not intend to repair the car. It’s a 2005 with 186k on the clock.

Re: Power Adjustable Pedal Swap

I briefly looked into it. My pedals don't go back and forth anymore. I looked in the service manual and the the first step is "remove the steering column.

Filling/topping off transmission

Any reason anyone can think of why i couldnt add fluid to the trans thru the dipstick?

Id like to add a little fluid but i dont want to spend more than 30 seconds doing it. I dont want to take a anything off and try to find the fill plug.

Buy an o ring assortment kit from harbor freight. They are usually $7.99, they come with several hundred o rings.

Re: Aux questions. Did search, no luck

I as well use a red/white RCA jack to 1/8" mini plug. I just push "aux" on the head unit and I'm good to go. I dont keep a DVD in the player nor does the screen come on, nor do I fold it out.

Re: Tire Size

Sounds like more of a truck tire... I'd Google one of those tire diameter calculators to see oHow much taller that tire is gonna be... Doesn't seem like there's much room left in those wheel wells. I was at a junkyard in Denver the other day and there was a freestyle with 245/xx/xx tires mounted on ...

Re: Rear Step Pad - Remove and Reinstall

It just has tabs and slots along the front and back edges evenly spaced. I think if you pull aft and up on the aft edge you'll get it off. I think I broke a tab or two on mine, but it stays on there just fine. It's kinda a pain to put back on due to being awkward.

Re: Reverse Lights Out

Just throwing this out there, could there be a switch inside the console shift that triggers that circuit that isn't making a connection?
