      Always, even with automatics. My hope is that it'll reduce stress on the parking pawl and keep the trans working longer/better.

      It sounds like you want a 4Runner even though you've ruled them out. They're good on the highway and off road. They're pretty much Tacomas, so tons of aftermarket support as well. Whether one can be...

      I had my Volvo 240 on jack stands with the engine running, don't remember what I was trying to do, but I noticed one of the accessory belts was loose. I decided to check the tension with my finger.....

      My brother leased a base model Civic the day the stop sale on the 1.8l engine was announced:laugh:

      I don't have much to say about it, but I really like it. Haven't driven it but it looks good, has...

      I'm glad you like the shifter.

      However, they are horrible. Absolute **** design.

      Dunno if this counts, but there's a legendary thread on Expedition Portal about a guy and his wife driving a 70 series Land Cruiser troopy through the Congo. I've read the entire thread twice now,...

      Core support just looks very dirty to these eyes :confused:

      If that price is in CAD, that's a GREAT deal for 86k miles and a matched hardtop, at least by southern California standards. If USD,...

      I was thinking exactly, verbatim, your opening sentence as I scrolled upon your post. :thumbup:

      It's interesting how taste and style changes. Metallic paint used to be seen as high end, now a base...

      The new Miata has an interior trunk release. It's very funny when you consider the size of that trunk.

      Can you explain what the info on the piece of paper is for and how it's used in header fabrication?

      Interesting post. I've also been a bit confused by the passive rear steering feel, in my case from the BMW Z4. When you take a turn very hard, the rear seems to swing a bit (without losing traction),...

      It's your car, do what you want, but I'd like to suggest leaving the exterior alone and patina intact as it looks cool as hell right now. You can always respray later if it doesn't suit you, but this...

      Clutch could be glazed from poor driving. Slipping makes heat and in extreme situations, can form a hard glaze over the clutch disc. I'm not sure what the remedy is but I think a few clutch drops...
