      Any CELs? Maybe the timing needs to be done, I also had a problem with my knock sensor and CTS causing the same symptoms (separate times). Is the shift rod thingy in the intake runner switching...

      Remove it like you would a stuck brake disc. Soft taps by the bolts increasing gradually until it comes off, also don't forget the penetrating oil. If that dont work use a torch on the flywheel to...

      Shouldn't he crush washer only prevent oil from leaking out and not prevent the tensioner from working properly?

      That's what I was thinking, because more water cools better than 50/50. Off course you need some coolant to prevent boiling, corrosion and to lubricate.

      It revs pretty fast, but I also have a lightweight pulley set. I wasn't able to install the crank pulley, it's a bitch to get out. The flywheel don't feel any different from stock to me as far as...

      You're probably not a dumb as me, but I would recommend you use a relay and make sure the housing can handle a 100w bulb heat. When I first got my car I replaced the fogs with 100w bulbs and it burnt...

      I think the extra line (Evap Line) that Ts out of the bigger PCV hose (Plugged Hose) that goes to the heater (Broken Sensor) on the intake is a flame retardant for safety, in case of a backfire. I...

      Valve knock, maybe? I think the shifter rod sounds more rattly, but could still be that. That's what mine sounded like when the chain slipped, so maybe the timing is off by a tooth?

      It's a pain, but your 2nd pic is correct by pulling towards you and it's easy to break at the corner.

      you can probably use a piece of power steering hose from autozone, they sell it by the ft. There shouldn't be too much rubbing for you to need the bend.

      I think that's a vacuum reservoir, it's mainly for the shift rod on the intake manifold. I would keep that to help the change over valve working better. Sometimes they have them for brake boosters.
