    I had my ‘94 Explorer 17 yrs. In that time I was blessed with an 85% run time and repairs cost under $5K. She has been a blessing to me. During the last 8 yrs my Ex developed issues that I couldn’t fix and couldn’t justify paying $120/hr labor. I shopped 10 mos for an SUV, finally got...

    brakes go to floor, pulling rt, shaking... caliper? Nope

    Those symptoms point to a frozen caliper right? and yet upon inspection today brake fluids full; none leaking on the tire (I had a froz caliper yrs ago on a Pontiac). My neighbor, THANK YOU TOM, came over and checked the obvious. What he found was a broken vacuum line to a part I can't identify...

    In '81 changed out the wheel bearing on my '76 datsun. I was very proud of my work until, while driving, the rear is shaking real bad... I stop at the first shop I see. They pull the wheel and charge me $16 to tell me my lug nuts were on backwards!! Just yesterday I put my idler pulley on...

    WHOO HOO! Oil change!

    about noise... I bought my truck with a hood deflector attached but the corner was cracked. I took it off after 2 weeks cos it impeded my hood opening. I didnt realize it helped deaden the noise till it was gone. I have to get another one! I did put on window vent shades and they help some.
