      No you cannot simply unplug the cts. You must also shunt the plug in order to simulate a warm condition. Otherwise it will be pig rich. No sensors for timing. It's a simple centrifugal mechanical...

      There's no fancy electronics here. The temp gauge simply measures coolant temperature. If it acts up when the gauge reads low, then sure enough, your temperature is low. A stuck open tstat could keep...

      There's not many sensors that control the mixture-- really only the coolant temp sensor when cold, and the o2 sensor when warm. It's possible that the CTS isn't dropping enough in resistance when...

      Ran over a deer last night going around 70. Miraculously, no damage (neuspeed lowering springs even). Lost maybe 10mph on impact. Was a few carlengths behind an SUV passing a semi. SUV didn't brake...

      Never played with a 3A but from what I remember, the injectors go in the head an not the intake manifold. Motronic combines fuel and ignition into one system, so there's no separate knock box. If you...

      huh looks like diesel filters came down in price or it spiked when i was last looking (they were over 2x the cost). if i find that my fox ever stops leaking oil, maybe i'll go synthetic with a diesel...

      Are you sure it was flooded? And that it was the CSV spraying at full bore? The CSV system is pretty much completely independent and auxiliary. It runs from the starter (so it only possibly has power...

      Hmm, if you used to need to have the belt attached and all of a sudden now you don't, it sounds like it might be an issue with the relay? I don't know where the hell my Bentley went, so I can't...

      Pulling out the cluster is relatively simple and doesn't require taking the wheel off. The only real concern is that the headlight/hazard/defog switches need to be pulled out, and they need to be...

      Is being able to start the car without the seatbelt latched a new symptom? In both Foxes I've owned, this has been bypassed by the latch (wires shorted).
      If you used to need to connect the seatbelt...

      As it turns out, it looks like these fittings are actually the stock ones, but with the crimped on hose removed. 5/16" hose fits on great with ABA clamps and no leaks yet. Use a 22mm wrench to...
