    Pathfinder: Tranny related.

    Guys, a friend of mine has a 95 Pathfinder 4x4. It crapped out on him. So he wound up taking it to Nissan to have it repaired. He Knew the tranny would need a rebuild and expected to pay no more then 1500. He got a call a few days later explaining that being the SUV was a 4x4 it needed to be...

    XMOD rc cars

    What are your opinions on these? I think there pretty cool, fairly fast out of the box, good amount of parts for upgrades. With a few mods these things can go 30-35MPH. I realize that might not be that fast compared to other more exspensive stuff out there, but for the money you cant beat...

    No more Explorer and a thankyou.

    About a month ago my tranny started acting up again. Back in June of 2001 I had a rebuild done and again it's in the shop for another rebuild. This time Cottman is taking care of it under extended warranty. Should have been finished today, but more likely Sat. Anyway, I bought a 03 Toyota...

    Loss of power after longer drives.

    After a 30 min drive my Ex looses some power and acceleration is poor. It pretty much feels like a dog after so many min of driving. Feels like a 20-30hp loss!! Maybe more... Im assuming this is because of the engine is very warm and is stealing power? Or an actual problem. What do you...

    A real race story!!

    I borrowed my wife's Geo Metro last night--one liter of raw power, three cylinders of asphalt-tearing terror on 13-inch rims. It's stock, all right, nothing done to it, but it pushes the barely 2,000 pounds of Metro around with AUTHORITY. I'm always catching mopeds and 18-wheelers by surprise...

    Just curious as to how often you guys need an Alignment for your Ex's? Seems like mine needs to be done every month or so. I dont go off road, I dont hit many bumps. Or is this normal?
