I am working on restoring a 1953 Commander Hardtop Coupe. I have heard the frame on this car referred to as the "flexi-flier" and so I wondered if anyone had any experience in stiffening the frame on these cars. I am planning on a V8 with about 200 HP and an automatic OD transmission. I read more...In article: 1953 frame stiffening suggestions
I bought a TSX 6 months ago. The passenger rear door speaker started sounding just a little distorted. I don't play music loud, up to 15 is the highest. After a few months the speaker got worse.

In checking the fluids on my 2003 E 39 I noticed what appears to be the power steering reservoir (small tank with plastic cap and dipstick). The cap says "ATF oil only." The owner's manual doesn't deal with this at all. Is this really the power steering reservoir? If so, should I use ATF read more...In article: E39 "ATF oil only"

Hi: I have a 2000 focus with the Zetec that will not start. It has spark, but no fuel, even at the input of the filter. I tried resetting the fuel cutoff, checked the fuses and the fuel pump relay.

I've changed the spark plugs a few times in my Elantra. I've worked on machines long enough to know when a screw is tight but not too tight, but I decided to buy a torque wrench to be more precise next time. The problem is the manual offers no numbers and I'm hoping someone here knows the correct read more...In article: Elantra spark plug torque setting

Just curious, If I cleaned my throttle body and reassembled it without changing the manifold gasket, what would the symptoms be, if the old gasket isn't holding its seal?

I didn't change the gasket and would like to see if what happened read more...In article: What are the symptoms of a leaking throttle body gasket?

I diagnosed a problem on my 1990 Miata to the ISC valve. Looks like a simple part to replace...but wait! How about around $500 for a new one?

Has someone semi-permanently sealed up a sunroof? I have a 123 with the sunroof leaks from hell and until I find the proper pan for a manual sunroof, I'd like to seal the thing up (the PNW weather will take the smallest leak and make your car a mobile swimming pool).
