    High Mount/3rd Brake Light … Any Recommendations?

    As the title says … Does anyone have any input on items currently available? Anything OEM(ish), using traditional incandescent bulbs appears completely non-existent. The LED unit I installed about 11 years ago has crapped out even though I’ve driven the truck about only 1500 miles during that...

    A local Gen 1 owner contacted me for advice re: hard shifts and DTC 624. I know about the possible PCM and EPC failures and Pinpoint Test E, but if anyone has experience that turned out to be a simple fix, I’d appreciate to hear about it.

    Proper Battery Maintenance ... ?

    As some might know, my truck sits in the garage ... ... a lot. Sometimes it doesn’t get driven for multiple months and sometimes it doesn’t even get started up for several. That being the case, and that having been the case for a while, I’ve lost a few batteries over the years to sulfation...

    So Who's Still Here?

    We used to get a good number of Tampa Bay area owners together somewhat frequently for various gatherings and shows. Many of us have either gotten lazy, lost interest or have just moved on. Who's left? I know Fred (motorhead1024) is back in the area and he and I are hoping to attend a local...

    Starter Issues With My Nissan ...

    I'm obsessing over recent starter losses in my 1999 Nissan Maxima and their frequency (three starter replacements in three months) and I'm now second guessing whether my recurrent issue is actually the starters at all. I mean three brand new (aftermarket) and/or newly remanufactured...

    Single Action Coil Spring Compressor?

    Anyone have experience with one of these? Good ... Bad ... stupid of even considering it? I've got 4 struts to replace removing 4 lowering springs and I am not a fan of the two piece tools but haven't used one of these.

    Rear Brakes | Haven’t Been This Irritated In A While

    So, what am I missing? Is there some lock-down, fail-safe, GD thermonuclear “go” code needed just to get a GD rear drum off?! I have a driver’s side rear wheel cylinder failure ... and all I wanna do is change it out. However, my drum is stuck. I’ve gotten to the point where I can no...

    AC Experts ... Refrigerant Oil Question

    I've lost all of the refrigerant from the system in my Nissan resulting in a non-operational compressor. I'm pretty certain that the leak is the low-side service valve in the low-side hose. Although all of the refrigerant has been lost, there is no evidence of the discharge of any PAG. That...

    Hey Tech-Heads ... Opinions Wanted

    My ipad mini (1st generation) took a dump and has become totally unusable. I've got an opportunity to buy, for a darn good price, a replacement (ipad mini 1st generation) that's supposedly never been used, never been opened, BNIB. If this is truly the case (BNIB), is a possibly 6 year old...

    I can't fathom that I'm alone in thinking we all have strong and varying opinions and perspectives on the many and varied political and social issues facing all of us in these f***ing crazy and unprecedented times.

    Soo ... Wait ... We Don't Share X-Mas Gifts Anymore?

    From what I recall, we all "used" to share with each other, what we got for Christmas. I'll start ... Although, I got a good volume of spendy gifts, and I do already have a full set FSM, I think this is my fave: It's a little rare, and it's a car thing I got from my best girl. I'll use it...
