Each caliper is controlled independently by the BPMV (Brake Pressure Modulator Valve), there is no external proportioning valve.

That sucks, a lot. I do sell the ribbon harness, but you have to remove the entire dash to access it. If you have clear access, I would definitely try to solder it back together, nothing really to lose. If you need the harness, PM or email me @ andrew.suderman@gmail.com http://i675.photobucket.com/a...

No thermal paste, it's not even used as a ground. It is just a mounting plate. To the amount of R&D you'd go through to get a coil on plug I see no benefit. The ignition system on these cars does have its quirks, but overall they are very reliable and easy to diagnose even without fancy tools. Y...

I saw the title of this thread and immediately knew it was going to be the stalk switch. I see this often, we are so accustomed to auto headlights that if someone happens to touch that switch we are completely thrown off. :P

You've said the difference of the hoses, but not their actual temperature. They should around the same temp as your engine coolant temp of 195°, therefore you shouldn't be able to hold onto them. The dash temp will read 200° even if the car is within 180-220°, it's a dummy gauge. If you're hoses are...

No problem man. I deal with this a lot because I sell these seats to guys who put them in their hot rods and can't figure out why they don't work.

You simply need to add a power source to that memory module. The memory won't work, but the but module needs power to be able to power the rest of the seat.

You will obviously have power at the large orange A4 wire, but make sure you have power going to A9 and B5.

Toss it out. I think it's supposed to be for harmonics but most of the time they just fall off.

You need to use metal barbed fittings or it will probably leak. Dorman makes repair kits for this, just stop into your local parts store. You will spill minimal fuel, it could easily be contained in a towel under the repair area.

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...
