      If you look at my earlier posts, when everyone was telling me $150 bbl oil was due to increased demand from India and China, I called BS on that and said prices will come down from speculative bubble...

      How about I give my username and password to all my online accounts so you can inspect them yourself to determine who is a troll or who isn't? I don't think I could sleep at night knowing that some...

      I don't try and catch falling knives. Last time this happened I waited until oil was in the $30 range, and got lucky that it went back up very quickly. This time I don't think it will. It could...

      This is what I said a few weeks ago and you called me a fool. I guess now that you're doing it, its genius :screwy:

      I was really making a joke about the gift to the banks by having their shenanigans continue to be backed by taxpayers, enshrined in the omnibus bill, but thanks for the pedantry nonetheless.

      I've had bad vibrations at certain rpm's from an unbalanced flywheel, especially if it was lightened incorrectly. The vibration will be worse at one particular rpm, and less at others. A...

      I'm sure that a lot of money is leaving stocks and heading into swaps now that the gov't has passed the omnibus bill. Now Wall St can bet the farm and get a guaranteed bailout by taxpayers. Who...

      It must be highly variable. I had my head off to do the head gasket, and the chain guides looked essentially brand new at 107k. There really wasn't any point in replacing them. It makes me wonder...

      There is more than enough wealth in the US for nice roads, universal healthcare, high speed rail, paid sick, vacation, maternity, paternity leave, etc. Its all a matter of priorities. Perhaps if we...

      Its actually pretty easy. Loosen the front and rear motor mounts and then jack up the engine with a jack under the oil pan using a piece of wood to protect your oil pan. Jack it up 5 or 6 inches...

      Could be lots of short trips as well. The battery just doesn't get charged back up when taking short trips and eventually starts to wear down. A smaller pulley might help with that type of thing.

      Looks like it was designed by a Japanese car company. Why don't they go back to the rounded cube look? It was masculine and feminine at the same time. This design looks metrosexual.

      Annealing is a process of heat/cooling metal to change its properties I thought. I'm not referring to that and I would be surprised if the aluminum crack pipe is annealed but perhaps it is.

      When aluminum heats and cools, it warps, just like a cylinder head will and can corrode as well, hopefully not to the cylinder head. Plastic is a poor thermal conductor so that's probably why it was...

      I've never replaced this part on my two C's with 300,000 combined miles. Sometimes the o-ring might need to be replaced if it hardens and then leaks. What problems are you seeing with this part? ...

      Wow, that aluminum flange costs half what a new radiator costs. I'd go with plastic there and put the saved money into a tune up or new brake pads. The C always needs something...

      You might need a new starter, I'm not saying you don't but they are fairly robust. Usually you'll get a dead spot in them, and if the starter is on the dead spot it won't start until its moved off...

      What do you mean one year only? They were only issued one year? My car is a 93. I hadn't noticed the wallet key was there until just the other day. Funny to be discovering something new in such...
