The rust is from brake dust. Trust me, I've cleaned HUNDREDS of these exact wheels and have it down to a science.

FYI, the chrome plating on the 00-01 swoop wheels is 10x superior to the chrome plating on the 02-05 bent spoke wheels. No idea why, just the way it is.

I use Meguiar's Wheel Brightener and #0000 steel wool, works amazing.

The MAP sensor is on the top rear of the engine and gets its vacuum line from the T-fitting under the supercharger.

It is best to remove at least one seat to avoid damage to the headliner structure. It is possible to get out without removing the seats, but will be FAR more challenging than just to remove the 4 bolts for the seat.

Yes I had to remove the insulation to see the corrosion. I would look further into this.

The EVAP line is just fuel vapor air, no liquid should be in there. Are you sure you're not confusing it with a fuel feed or return line? The EVAP line would be pretty easy to repair by just sectioning in a piece of rubber hose. You can cut the metal line with a tubing cutter, but unless the actual ...

I agree that its a misfire, and its so minimal that you're only feeling it when the torque convert is locked up. If you have a way to access live data you could see which cylinder is misfiring (I know its extremely difficult with a 94 and the OBD1.5 system). If its due for plugs and wires I'd start ...

Just had a car come through my shop with this exact problem. U1040 in the PCM and C1248 and C1254 in the EBCM and all lights on the dash. I could still communicate with the EBCM with my Tech2 but the codes kept popping up. It was a corroded ground connector for the EBCM ground which is on top of the...

I have a cheap code reader, it is telling me the U1040 code. If it was one of the wheel sensors, would it give that code? Or would it be a specific code for that wheel? yes you need a tech 2 class of scanner and it will pinpoint the issue maybe worth the 50 - 100 bucks for a shop to scan an give yo...

U1040 is a loss of communication code, doesn't really help you. If it were a problem with a specific component it would tell you that (C1234 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal Missing). Have you checked for power going to the EBCM? Are you sure the used replacement was an exact replacement?...

It is mounted on the frame down behind the cooling fans/radiator. If you look straight down you should see it. The torx bolt to remove it is mounted under the car, and it is REVERSE thread. FYI, the front impact sensors do commonly go bad. It has nothing to do with slamming the brakes on. They are m...

I've refinished a few GXP sets with Duplicolor HWP101 Silver and it is extremely close to OEM.

If you get new, don't get the cheap chinese aftermarket junk. AC Delco or Delphi. I haven't had good luck selling used fuel pumps unless they come directly out of a running car. Sitting on the shelf and drying up usually ends up seizing the motor or bearings.
