    Is nothing sacred?????

    True, or you could take the business side and buy up as much of the animal crackers you can in the boxes already out before they change and rake it some cash from people that feel the same way about them changing the box design.

    Don't understand some of this generation

Just to ask thou, since were on the subject of hand outs, how does everyone feel about racing sponsors? or is that ok because they...

    Where does the antifreeze go?

    Think I may have found the problem, the hard way. There is a plastic y piece on the heater hoses. It burst going to work, antifreeze everywhere. Guy at auto store said it was a pretty common problem for the caravans. 95.00 for the whole assembly or 8 bucks for just another plastic y pipe...

    Where does the antifreeze go?

    Not camaro related 2008 caravan, busted the radiator open a year or two ago, changed it and the fans with a new unit with relay. Now for some reason the antifreeze just disappears. The oil dipstick doesn't show antifreeze in there. I ran the car the other day and it over heated because it was...

    Anyone run those viking coilovers in the front?

    On the site they say 500lbs is best for a big block but i HATE the gasser look. I'm thinking that may be too much spring for a street driven car. I can adjust the height and ride on them but 500 just sounds way too stiff. I'll have aluminum heads on the engine as well, stock rate is something...

    Need perspective type question

    I thought I said it was a hydraulic cam. OK so how do I start? do I lose them up and tight them down? do I leave it as is? how do I know it's good? I have no feeler gauge and like I said no real idea what I'm doing.

    Need perspective type question

    Anything like a leak down test? I was going to try one of those before I did the valves but i forgot who talked me out of it. I had mentioned my problem and someone from work told me it was a waste of time.

    Need perspective type question

    Now in regards to that site, i saw something similar after I already did the damage so to speak. I will tell you that there is no way I did 1/4 turns for anything. I'm positive on a few it was full on ratchet it down. Now since it's hydraulic how am i going to get it warned up if it's not going...

    Need perspective type question

    Yes I'm 99% positive the wires are on correctly. I'm almost positive that it's the valves at this point. Here is what I did, I pulled the covers off and found rockers that where lose. So I tightened them, in no order and after I started doing it, the inner me said," This is a mistake, you never...
