    Stripped rear wheel speed sensor bolt and leak on diff

    Make sure your tools are the right size and all the way on before you try to break something loose. I don't know about the leak I can't tell where it is comming from by the picture. Is it comming from where the axle goes into the diff?

    Feels like misfire but no codes

    I pulled Cyl 6 plug. It was black. I cleaned it up and put it back in. I put two cans of sea foam thru the brake booster. It ran great for a day, now it's back to the same crap. So it must have something to do with Cyl 6. What do I do now? I'm stuck guys.

    Crazy Mileage drop, o2 sensor?

    Along with taking your foot out of it, start with the fuel filter. Check your tire pressures! You should consider forgetting the premium fuel... Use regular octane. Buy a can of seafoam and read the directions. It's good stuff. Check and replace that air filter! Don't just blow it out. Do an...
