    hey everyone I was wondering if anyone knows if an older ford nine inch will fit, if you missed my last post and are wondering why Im asking this question its because I am wanting to put a small block chevy in the car with around 500 hrp. but I have been told that the stock rearend is only good for around 250 or 300, so the next best thing was to try and put in a ford nine, well any help with this whole topic would be greatany websites, pictures etc.

    I'd ask in the Engine Swaps (Performance Swaps) discussion.

    I recently bought a toyota camry LE. and when i bought the car, the price included the price of the auto-dimming mirror and a remote start.
    I just got my car back with one of the accessories, the remote start installed today. Thats when I noticed the part installed wasn't the original toyota accessory and was a cheap third party spare, but when the sale was made it was based on the toyota accessory list prices. I dont know if i was cheated or this the norm.
    Posting this here as I dont see a thread for such questions. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    thanks in advance,

    What you need to do is post your question in one of those discussions Steve linked for you. That's where you are more likely to find the folks who can help.

    First tranny problem: when cold (Michigan) tranny will not shift out of 2nd gear for 1/4 to 1/2 mile.
    Second problem: Often when warm will not shift out of 2nd gear. Often when turning a corner hard, will drop into 2nd and not shift out. When this happens the only way to get it to shift properly is to turn off the car and restart. works great then. Dealer had it and could find no troubles. Even had it when it didn't shift for them and they still couldn't find the problem

    Try Audi A6 first. You can also check the Audi A6 group for matching topics.

    I have a 1994 S10 P/U I bought new. When I turn on the wipers, I get both speeds and spray, but they won't shut off. I have to pull the fuse. Only when they are turned on, they don't shut off. When the power is interrupted(fuse pulled), they "reset". The wiring has never been disturbed, no alarm, stereo, etc. have been added. What is the probable cause? I alredy replaced the lever on the column.

    It's right where you left it: Factory, and built for Racing Rally cars

    I need some guidance on where to look for a 1973 Vega cooling fan. I have looked on several websites and it seems to be the only part they don't have! Any help would be great!
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 5,860
    I actually owned a '73 Vega at one time (You can even see a pic on my CarSpace page)

    Maybe the fan is part of another part? It was easy enough to find parts suppliers, but I haven't run into a listing for a cooling fan yet either.

    I thought of that, but am only finding radiators and such. We bought this for our duaghter, believe it or not - a cool old car. She went scooting down the alley in the mud and "slid" into the neighbors fence. Just chipped a bit off of one fan blade, probably okay for now, but I would feel better with a new one. How do I get to your Carspace page to see the Vega?
  • kgettokgetto Posts: 3
    Ok, I found your page! Cool Veaga. Ours is a Camback - we call it Orange Crush!

    Noticed you like airplane spotting aswell. Interesting as my dad was a pilot, and I live not too far from a small airport and the old Londgren airplane factory. "Spot" planes frequently!

  • I have a 2000 Saab 95 Gary Fisher edition wagon. I looked for information of price to ask for sale, and only found Aero 95 wagons. What is the proper way to figure the price, with all the bells and whistles this car comes with? My car is in excellent condition, never in an accident, with 109,000 miles. Maintained perfectly.

    You could ask the folks in the Saab 9-5 Wagon discussion for advice.

    Claires has given you a great suggestion. You could also post in the Real-World Trade-In Values discussion for some more opinions.
  • I have a 99' Alero, 3.1 and the first thing that happned was about a week ago, it wouldn't start. My wife had it at a gas station and a guy came over to help her and said to lock and unlock the car 3 or 4 times. She did so, and it worked. The next day the car was working fine. That night I went to pick her up, and I had to do the same thing with the lock unlock thing. The following morning, I went to start it and it missed the first time. Fired up on the second try. Didn't drive it all day. That night it started up fine for her, and then she turned the car off, then went to start it again and wouldn't start. We have replaced the starter, and it worked fine for 3 or 4 starts, now we are back to square 1.

    This morning it wouldn't start at all. When I turn the key it does nothing. I take the key out and all my gauges on my dash board go crazy. The needles bounce all over the place with the car turned off. I read about leaving the key on acc or on for 10-20 mins, so I tried that, nothing. But everytime I do that, my clock goes back to 1:00 the next time the battery is on. Now I am getting a click like the battery is dead.

    Please help!

    I'd just add perhaps $700-$1000 to the price. That's about what the GF edition premium would be in a 2000 vehicle.

    Mercedes Benz--my out of control light flashes when I am traveling about 50 miles per hour. While I am going straight down the road. Then my car swerves. Under 50 MPH no light flashes.
  • I have a 2004 Kia Sorento, 5 speed manual transmission with 39,000 miles. Several times now I have put the car in neutral and had it stall. It will only stay running in 5th gear. If I give it plenty of gas it will slowly pick up speed in 5th gear ( the dealer tells me that it won't got in 5th gear from a stand still, not so) and run normally. I have taken it to the dealer each time it has happened but since it is working fine when I get it there they tell me they can't tell what is wrong since it is now working fine and they can't duplicate the problem. I can't get it in when there's a problem because it works itself out after driving a few blocks. It seems like the car gets stuck in 5th gear. Has anyone else out there had a problem with their vehicle stalling out like this? I'm getting very frustrated!!!!

    You don't say which Mercedes you are driving - try a Browse By Vehicle search on the left for forum discussions about the various MBs. Most of the MB groups have Maintenance & Repair discussions so your best bet is to post in one for your model MB.
