  • I recently bought a 88 dynasty le with a little over 100,000 miles. The other day while changing the brakes I noticed that both outer cv boots were torn. Still attached but torn. Although the car makes no clicking sounds on turns, it does make a clunking sound while in reverse and while decelerating. Up until a week ago the car had been stored in a garage for about 5 years and had only been driven about 1000 miles. My question is would replacing the boots with a quick boot replacement be worth it, or would that just be a temp fix and would I be better off just replacing both axles. If I were to replace the boots I would absolutely use the quick fix boot, because if I were to put the originals on, I would do almost as much work as if I were to replace the axles. One more question. If replacing the axles would be better, what other parts would be a good idea to change with the axle. Any seals or maybe even the motor mounts? I appreciate any help in advance. I am sorry if I posted this message in the wrong forum. This is my first post and I am just trying to get any and all help that I can. Once again thanks to everyone in advance.

    Hello this is not about tire size. New to this site. I want to know if anyone knows if a Geo Metro 5 speed transmission or transaxle will fit in my 99 Suzuki Swift?
    I have the trans out and need a good used one only got 176,000 miles out of this one.
    Thanks :confuse:

    I'd ask in the Chevrolet/Geo Metro discussion since the Swift was a rebadged Metro. Or vice versa.

  • My lease is ending on my 2004 Acura RSX in one month and I want to purchase and a 2007 Acura TSX. My price to buy the RSX today is $11,706 and the KBB (Good Condition) is $13,640. Is there anyway I can extract the value delta there and use the difference to aid my downpayment for the new TSX?

    I am looking to purchase a RX 350 soon w/ Premium Package in Charlotte, NC. I wanted to know if anyone has had experiences with the Lexus dealership here. (i.e. good pricing, deals, etc.)What are people paying here for a 2007 and 2008 in this area. I need some advice as how I should approach it.

    The Lexus RX 350: Prices Paid & Buying Experience discussion would be the place to ask.

    You'll find other owners in our Mazda Miata group. Have a look at the existing discussions (where you're most likely to get a response), and if there's not one that covers your topic, you can start a new one.

    I remember hearing that the 3.4 litre had problems, blown head gaskets if I remember correctly. This was in the late 90's. I am looking at a 2000 Monte Carlo with a 3400 engine. Had GM fixed the problems they had with the 3.4 by 2000?

    Start out in the Chevrolet Monte Carlo group. You may also want to check with the folks in the Chevrolet Impala group since it's the same engine and body-family.

    Head over to the Chrysler Town & Country/Dodge Grand Caravan group and there should be a couple of discussions there that can help you out.

    Without knowing which GMC model you have, I'd recommend using the "Browse by Vehicle" menu selections in the left margin. Select GMC for "Make", then your specific truck in "Model". You should find a discussion regarding electrical issues for that particular truck.

    Two places you can check: Buick Park Avenue Maintenance & Repair or our general "No Start" Problems discussion.

    Hello, I'm new to this forum, and was hoping someone could help me make a decision: my 05 Tahoe 4wd 23,000 mi has an annoying hum in the front,most audible at between 40-50 mph,noisiest at 45, when you let off the accelerator,or coast,took it to my dealer,and was told it was the front axle,sounds like a major job,and I am concerned whether to have it (hopefully) fixed,or just live with the noise,dealer said there was a bulletin on this.
    Any one else had this problem? if so,was it corrected? Your comments would be greatly appreciated
    Great site guys !!!! P.S. can you purchase a GM protection plan at any dealership? seems to be very good deals online Thanks again
