      I put my jack at a 90 degree angle, but the left wheel still lifted by about 1/2 inch. I wonder if there is something wrong with my jack.

      This is where I put the jack stand. Is this a safe...

      The symptoms you describe typically tends to be the ignition switch, or the starter, although I would lean towards the ignition switch. When mine went bad, it would sometimes start no problem, other...

      I meant the ECU. I have had the same issue, where I could communicate with the ECU but got an error from the ABS module. Not sure why that happens, but mine works now, and I don't recall doing...

      You really need to be able to communicate with the ABS controller to see what codes might have been triggered. I have an Ebay cable, and a serial to USB adapter and can connect to it. Can you...

      Here's what it looks like. I think it should work pretty well both protecting the underside of the car, and keeping it from slipping. Now if I can get my jack to not tilt I should be good to go.

      You can get adhesive backed sheets, but I opted for none, so I could come up with something myself. I don't know what they use for an adhesive, but obviously the material should be able to take...

      I don't think the bottom puck does much of anything, so you can likely reuse that, trim the shaft, and then make sure the rubber insert has a similar shape, which I think it does, although the old...

      That would require that the interest on the CD is higher than the interest on the loan. A 2 year CD is paying a little over 1% right now. Given the Fed's interest in a NIRP environment, that might...

      Funny that you mention that. I wanted to make sure the bottom of the car doesn't get scraped up from the jack stand since its metal on metal. So I hunted around for a rubber cover, but I couldn't...

      Thanks, I'll give that a try and see what happens. My garage space doesn't have much room left or right, so getting the jack in at a 90 degree angle isn't possible unless the car is parked within...

      Sorry, I meant the rear wheel on the jack was lifting not the rear wheel of the car. Yes the Corrado body is so stiff both wheels come off the ground. Not sure if that's the same as with other...

      I finally had some time to take a picture. This time it didn't do it too bad, but had I jacked it up a few more inches, that left wheel would have been an inch off the ground. Do I have a faulty...

      I've used Turbo Tax the last few years and its fine. My taxes aren't that complicated but I would recommend it. If it was good enough for our former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner its good enough...

      Since it likely doesn't make much difference financially whether you pay cash or finance with rates so low, I would look at it from a different angle. If you pay cash, you'll make a big dent in your...

      Jack Tilts when jacking up

      I have a Craftsman 2 ton aluminum jack and sometimes when I'm jacking the car up, one back wheel comes up off the ground like the jack is twisting on me. I am jacking the car at the point where that...

      If you have an OEM fan that's broken they can be fixed since its always the resistors that have failed. Otherwise, a newer Chinese fan is the other option.

      I hadn't heard of that drug or disease. However, what's happening is far worse than orphan drugs being expensive, which isn't that surprising given the small market. I am talking about generic...

      Thanks for the detail. I had no idea that the gears could wear to such an extent. Bizarre. I haven't fixed my problem yet. I haven't replaced the tensioner, and I don't really know that its...

      A poorly functioning tensioner can really make a mess. Too tight and you have accelerated wear, too loose and you can trash your engine. Unfortunately, you can't really easily tell if the tensioner...

      Hard to say what its worth without more information. If the engine was running fine, and there were no major issues, I would say $5k depending on where you live. If the engine needs work, then...
