Re: Accuracy of fuel range indication

I've observed that with speed control On, MPG skews slightly favorably even though approaching hills the system increases rpms sharply to maintain constant speed. Whereas with speed control off, on the same/similar route I can modulate the throttle deftly to maintain exact speed without that rpm bur...

Re: Accuracy of fuel range indication

I assume the fuel computer reads TPS positions against speed sensor input. A common issue on most cars that don't get driven regularly or get fuel system additives is that the fuel level sensor sticks producing erroneous readings. Tom Taylor at Rick Auto reported that Valvoline fuel system cleaner w...

Re: Accuracy of fuel range indication

Meaningless. Unless the car was completely level when parked then later started and driven, the computer's calculations will be based on skewed fuel tank level readings which during the drive become more realistic.

Don't recall the OEM LF horn location...cuz for some reason no longer remembered I mounted the replacement near the radiator frame inside the engine compartment.

Re: Awesome. A new noise!

Your post. Your call.

Most prefer billet from start of machining to completion. (Although Chunk as in Chunk Todd of NBC works well...).

Re: Horn stopped working

Many overlook the integrity of single power wire connection to the horns as well as the quality of the ground contact of the unit to the frame/mount. That's where I started first as both are exposed to the elements.

Re: Horn stopped working

Had a "no-horn' on my '88 years ago; replaced the unit on the driver's side with a used one. No issues since.

The plan is to continue to have fully functional A/C in addition to heat.
I think Dimitri asked you about that re eliminating the HCV rather than eliminating the EATC in favor of swapping in slider controls.

Given the Textguage trend, future and even lazy current students will experience 'enorm' angst if reading Shakespeare or Chaucher or Dante. Or Wordsworth, Keats, Yeats, Eliot..., More likely is they will avoid those without blinking. But will hie to stand in line to enrol in university seminars on t...
