Re: Xr4ti... Sitting since 05..headgasket?

Dropped the tank tonight. Gas tank looks pretty bad inside... Its coke colored everywhere with black particulat...

Re: Xr4ti... Sitting since 05..headgasket?

The biggest issue I've had is replacing everything that's made of rubber.... suspension mounts, seals in the engine, tyres, tank (still have to do the gearbox, maybe the diff), as the rubber dries out, shrinks and hardens over time. This is everyone's fear including mine. Leaking like a sieve. I'm ...

Re: Xr4ti... Sitting since 05..headgasket?

lol hmm... So i did exactly what you said... My brother had a pressure gauge at the rail so I had my girlfriend check the gauge as I clicked the key onto the II position. nothin'. I read the fuse diagram and figured out the fuse was missing! I swapped the fuse and i heard it going so I replaced all ...

Re: Xr4ti... Sitting since 05..headgasket?

The inside. The outside does have some fishy stuff going on around the battery tray area. i'm not too sure. It isn't as bad as it looks. He eliminated the stock gauges and threw in a cluster that has a whole autometer setup. I'll worry about that later. I WAS poking around the forums and reading abo...

Re: Xr4ti... Sitting since 05..headgasket?

Oh there's so much I'm not telling you all. This car was HACKKEED.... its like Ray Charles did all the wiring... drunk.... with his feet. Where can I buy a Merkur dipstick? I heard they were specific- different than the SVOs/tbirds. Put in a new ignition key. It was a task getting the old one out. O...

Re: Xr4ti... Sitting since 05..headgasket?

After showing my brother the drained oil he doesn't think its coolant. He put his finger in it and its pure brown and it doesn't smell like coolant at all. The car had crappy grounds. Its hard to say what stopped the car from running. I will keep in touch if anyone is curious. I'm sure I'll need to ...

Xr4ti... Sitting since 05..headgasket?

Long story short. Car has been sitting since 2005. If it costs less than 500 bucks to get it running I'll just do it.(aside from new tires, fluids, vacuum lines, coolant lines, and whatever else dies with age. Cleaned off the car (it was being used as a shelf for car parts for cars my brother brough...

Coolant temp sensor head question

I installed an aftermarket E-fan with relay. The sensor switch that came with the kit is HUGE, and doesn't really fit in any stock places. Can I "T" into the negative wire on the coolant temp sensor that is located by the fuel rail? Which wire is the negative wire? Would it tell my afterma...
