    Re: Blown Head Gasket?...OR is it?

    I just replaced my head gasket, and though I'm not overheating and the mechanic didn't sniff HCs, I still seem to have not-normal coolant behavior (not getting sucked back out of the overflow tank,...
  3. Re: Click-No-Start (Starter, Ignition Switch and other Culprits)

    I have no experience with starter issues, but your comment makes me wonder if you don't know how to remove the passenger side access panel? If not, search the forum - it's easy, and greatly improves...

    Re: coolant leak near throttle body
