Exactly. But most people don't keep the same car for long enough for it to make a difference to them. Or aren't willing to spend the money when they could use it for the down payment on another car.

I admire your optimism. Maintenance doesn't make that much of a difference for a new car, it's after that car has been driven 200k miles where it really becomes apparent. But I think a lot of people...

I'm not sure those are network codes. Diagnostic codes related to the vehicle's network usually begin with the letter "U" (as opposed to P for powertrain). Ford's PATS system cuts the fuel so it...

That family of engines loves to leak at the upper intake manifold bolt grommets. Also check the PCV hose and grommet where it goes into the intake. If you are getting lean codes for both banks I'd...

I'd start by getting a copy of the FSM. You will most certainly need the wiring diagrams to troubleshoot this. SciFiGuy and jp2code are both good resources for getting your hands on a copy. To me it...

If you work on newer stuff with any regularity you might check out the launch diagun or x431 scan tools. Autel has a similar scanner in that price range (mine is an MP808 model) They are not cheap by...

Just a side note, HF branded scanners are made by Autel, and are definitely one of the better things they sell. Autel makes a great line of scan tools. I have a cen-tech branded one I bought 5/6...

One thing you could do is go to the parts store and ask if you can take a look at their rack of radiator hoses. As long as you can find one that has the same ID and the correct bend it should work....

Is it just leaking from the steering shaft and pitman arm seals? They are not terribly hard to replace but often times finding the part will be difficult. I tried to do a similar repair on an isuzu...

OT is a double edged sword for sure. I could be making more but I'd also go insane if I did that. I'll knock out a few 12 hour days here and there when the situation calls for it though.

I miss my little corolla (and the D21). That sucker practically ran on air once you got above a certain speed. Even around town, you'd have to idle it for hours and hours to average 30mpg. And with...

Oh man, whoever owned it before you deserves a good smack upside the head for neglecting an engine like that. One thing I've heard of (but have never tried personally) is to run a similar weight...

It happens to the best of us. As long as the pistons don't have holes in them you can probably get away with a valve job. I used to live about an hour north of there (without traffic lol) and I'd...
