Justin, here's a tip I had to learn the hard way---several times. When you put your head bolts in, step up he torque slowly. Going straight for the 55 ft.lbs. after snugging the bolts up like my...

Good work so far! Please keep in mind that you need your head bolt washers as well as the new head bolts. Using the old ones is fine, but the bolts don't come with them. I would change the oil after...

Yeah, $20 is about what you'll pay. RockAuto will ship them in the next couple of days, and the cost will still be about $20, if not a little less. My two sets ran me about $38-40, I can't remember.

I have never heard of using silicone gasket on the head, and it is probably for several reasons such as the fact that the sealant would press over into the cylinders and oil/water channels, which...

I don't know about a smell, maybe Crankswick can verify, but I know that when water meets oil, it makes a sludge that's about that color. My old Honda Accord had a coolant leak from a pinhole in the...

I've really got to hand it to you, you're rather crafty with fabricating a quick fix. I hope that holds up like it should. I can't remember what you need to get that piece off, but I would look...

I'm a 19-year-old with experience in heavy paper machinery repair and manufacture. I've used a lot of specialized tools because of where I worked last year. I figured that these sockets weren't quite...

I feel ya, man. They're good cars when they're kept up and pretty cheap and easy to maintain. I can't wait to see the result of that aerosol dye job. That almost seems too good to be true, so I am...

That's not the case. These are the ones that most people are skeptical of, the "universal" sockets. If you look in the pictures, the ends of the splines are rounded. Splined sockets and bits are...

I found the sockets. They're a brand called "powerbuilt," and they're sold in O'Reilly's stores. They're CR-V (chrome-vanadium) sockets, and they're slotted rather than being cut for 6 or 12 points....

I made a mistake, man. That's a 10-mm star, which is also called a 10-mm 12-point socket. When you pull the valve cover off, down between the rocker arms on either side are the head bolts. They're...

Hey, I see you're having a lot of trouble out of that poor car lately. My motor's almost done on the rebuild and I've got parts to overhaul the one I'm riding on now. If you run into any other...

Oh! I just looked at the picture of your MAF again and realized something: there's a honeycomb structure that is supposed to be in front of the sensor. On the 501-style MAF sensors, that honeycomb is...

What idle control screw are you talking about? Is it the hex screw that's got a jam nut to it over on the throttle body? If you're having trouble and can't find that screw, then there are two 10mm...

Hey, before you do anything with the lights, try a tube of toothpaste. It's great for the headlights if they're oxidized, but if you do the tail lights, I'm not sure. For $1, it can't hurt your...

Man, that looks rough. If you're careful enough, you might be able to fix that with a rag, a prybar, a rubber mallet, and a lot of patience. It hurts to look at that bracket knowing that it's the...

Not a problem, man, but, I was doing some research the other day which led me to believe that cleaning the MAF is a bad idea. I haven't had any trouble with it, but, hey, what can you do but try it?...
