[QUOTE=ThermalArc;37449432]I love you [editline]28th August 2012[/editline] Almost all obd1 cars. my 1jz and my 7m are like that[/QUOTE] My OBD0 22RE is like that too. c:
[QUOTE=Siminov;37448421]Yes, a week ago it was on minimum and I filled it up. Just today did i notice a puddle under the car, and yesterday, I think I heard the whine too. I put in generic PS Fluid, which may be why. Thanks, I'll check it out.[/QUOTE] I would say that whine is the power steering pump. My sisters camaro has the same problem, except it leaks worse.
I'm wondering, any of you have dashcams in your cars? I've been thinking of getting one (with some other stuff) in the Mercedes I'll hopefully be buying next week. Seems like some nifty equipment if some jackass does a wrong move and you end up damaging your car.
[QUOTE=D0C H.;37446641]Well thank you so much for at least trying to give me a rough idea as to what it could be..... oh wait no, you didn't. Thanks anyways.[/QUOTE] Why are you a jerk dude? Anyway, check this vid. I think it's cool but she kinda gives that aura, "lolzgurldrivurrr lollll" kinda thing. It's almost so cliche its exactly the plot on Wanggan Midnight with the model driving an R34 [video=youtube;dTgSmm_Hhyg]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTgSmm_Hhyg[/video]

Factory Chrysler turbines, he doesn't have the center caps though. The way the adaptors push the wheels out an inch looks nice, but I'm thinking of picking these up and slapping them on.

The malibu behind my truck actually has some weld drag lite's on it, I wouldn't mind putting them on for shits to see how it looks.
I don't like the center caps myself, they look a bit strange and out of place.

It's always something, yesterday it was power steering fluid, today it's oil. Goddammit, after class im getting this checked out, I think that the rubber hose finally went out on my turbo oil return, the oil pan shat itself, or the oil drain plug needs replacing, thankfully I got another oil drain plug though. I mean it sat there for about 24 hours and half a quart leaked out. Turbo your car they said, it would be reliable they said.
This is my friends video, their car and I'm fucking jizzing everywhere. I too want my Volvo to sound like that! [video=youtube;IfExM38Qvig]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfExM38Qvig[/video]

[img_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/7FZM3.jpg[/img_thumb] That's my main oil leak, figured. Was fine for awhile, but I knew that ghetto Hackjob won't last. The pipe coming from the red oil pan has no lip or threads, which is clamped to an old rubber line, then clamped to a screw on fitting. I guess i'll have to get this, and some temp rated rubber hose.

God damn I hate people. We were kinda slow today, but then suddenly got hit by a wave of 7-8 cars. As I'm getting through these cars as fast as I can, the one in the first bay leaves and another pulls in. An old-ass subaru outback (we get dozens of these every day) with its windows caked in mud. As if that wasn't bad enough, the interior was filled with pine needles, sand, dirt, and wrappers everywhere. A car like that is a nightmare, lost a lot of time cleaning it and fell behind on cars by quite a bit :\

I had a truck that had a little slide out cubby thing, and it was FILLED with used chew. it smelled fucking disgusting and i hurled into this drain thing we have in the floor. One of my coworkers had an outback with a doorbell push button start and a screwdriver shoved into the shifter hole as a shifter/shift knob combo.
So is it normal that my automagic transmission refuses to shift into overdrive when the engine is cold? Once it gets warmed up, its fine, but if it isnt it revs the shit out of third gear and refuses to go to O/D if I'm anywhere under 60mph.

My Audi try's to keep a 2,500k - 4000k rpm base until its warmed up than it does what ever it wants to do.
Running the engine hard while cold is terrible. I did it once and blew a fucking spark plug. (on my CVPI thank god)
I accidentally left RainX on for too long and now the fucking haze wont come off. I guess I'll have to do it again to remove the shit thats already there?
Did some sick comanche sliding, almost lost it during the slide, used my skills of not being bad at steering to not do so... was kinda fun lol. oh and finally got around to making a youtube channel for me and my friends shenanigans...

Took my car to work today (which is a very long commute which happens to be the same commute I wrecked on) and car's still making the popping noise. I deduced that it happens more frequently when going uphill. It's not the dirt guard under the engine. Suspension, I think. Anyone have any ideas? I'll probably take the car into the shop this weekend to look at it, maybe get an alignment and check fluids.
You guys have amy tips for dust? It seems you can draw on my car's windshield every day What if i spray airduster on it
[QUOTE=Jay Gatsby;37468905]You guys have amy tips for dust? It seems you can draw on my car's windshield every day What if i spray airduster on it[/QUOTE] I'd like to know this as well, I've cleaned my windows almost every other day and every time I come back out to my car they're filthy.
I know you guys hate me but I have a problem here. My blazer just died, for no apparent reason. Today, at around 9am, I got in it drove it to the gas station and back, nothing unusual, no voltage changes, nothing. I get home, turn it off, go in the house. Fast forward 3 hours, it's now 12:30pm. I want to get something to eat. I get in the truck, turn the key, make sure everything is working, like i normally do, and everything checks out. Lights, radio, etc. Then I turn the key more to start it. It dies. Nothing. The lights wont even come on now and they're on their own circuit. But the battery still has 12.4 volts in it. What the fuck?
