Drove home from work tonight, stopped by the gas station, put the e brake on, as normal, and smelled a horrendous burning smell. No smoke, no smells from the other wheel wells, just from the passanger rear. I searched the net tonight, and other forums said that the rear brake, or maybe the e brake m...

Aftermarket Headlight Bulbs....help!

Hey Guys and Gals. It's been quite a while since I posted. For quite some time, I've wanted to upgrade my factory headlight bulbs to something with more of a blue look to it. Here's my question.

Follow John's advice and look at the maintenence schedule. Ask only for what is required and nothing else. Some dealers will try to sell you a "wallet flush". Don't do it. Read your owners manual, be an educated consumer and demand that you get honest service. What do u mean by "Required"? (serious...

It is nearly impossible to diagnose engine sounds by just a written description. It is like shooting in the dark. If you had a sound file to listen to would help greatly. The engine does have timing chains. Pinging will mostly happen under acceleration. You need to bring it into the dealer to get t...

Ok... Imagine the sound of an engine knocking b/c of sub-par gas in it. Since ince the temps have cooled down down here, I notice that noise every now and then. However I do not believe that it's bad gas, b/c I only hear the noise primarily when the transmission is in drive. When I accellerate, the ...

Rear Light Stripes

Hey Guys, Someone on here posted pictures of his 500, and it had the Chrome tail light trim, but it wasn't the putco style. It looked more like the montego's rear lights. It didn't have the chrome strip surrounding the entire light...only 3 or 4 thin chrome stripes going across the tail lights. Has ...
