    Solar panel wiring routing

    I love the flexible solar panel setup. Do you mind sharing how you mounted to your roof rack and how it retracts and pulls out?

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    The mechanic found the threads that connect the tensioner bolt was stripped from the prior timing belt change and had quite of bit of thread locker on the bolt. Is the possibility of a semi loose tensioner bolt or a slowly leaking water pump cause the original timing belt slip? Didn't check the...

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    I didn't notice any damage to the cam gears. I am surprised to find only the leaking water pump/coolant. Maybe I was just lucky to get a little water to mix with the coolant and cause the slip. I will report soon how it runs after it is back together. Going to check the compression after just...

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    Update. The mechanic took the timing belt off and found a leaking water pump and a white film on the belt itself. Current thought is the leaking coolant on the crankshaft gear and the misfiring cylinders 1,3 caused the belt to slip. What do you think?

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    I got my parts from cruiser outfitters today and the mechanic will change the timing belt within the next 2 days. I hope that everything will work perfectly after it's done. It has been a crazy few weeks of troubleshooting and I want to know the root of the problem too. I am curious if the...

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    I did read an article recently about the counterfeit parts on amazon but I assumed that they were referring to 3rd party. One advantage is fast delivery and pretty good prices.

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    Just curious why not Amazon. I found a aisin timing belt kit with water pump for 169 that gets great reviews.

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    I will try that because I am shocked at what I found with the mechanic. He was confused by the live techstream data. He was not a fan of the checking the timing belt but he was out of ideas and I mentioned that it has happened to another member of the forum. The belt tension and teeth looked...

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    I used simple green to degrease the engine. not sure if it caused the white residue. it did seem pretty sealed up with absolutely no water within the timing cover. Since I will replace the timing belt and the tensioner, what else do you recommend changing at the same time? it has 218k and no...

    I am working on the timing and wondering how to adjust the timing without taking everything apart? It appears that it is off.

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    I just bought 2 new coils and I will change it in the morning just in case. Seems odd that they would malfunction since it was dry when I removed them and bank 2 coils are blocked with the intake.

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    No, I am not sure how to do that.. I have thought about it but it seems so unlikely from a pressure washing. It also does not explain why bank 1 O2 sensors are not responsive and being read by the ECU.

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    Unfortunately, I cannot figure it out. I thought that with a OBD2 reader and some tinkering and research, I could have solved my stupid mistake. Since my last update, I replaced all the spark plugs, (bank 2 plugs were fouled up) and changed the O2 sensors (upstream). I was convinced that the...

    Help.. I killed my engine after pressure wash

    I did change the MAF sensor , replaced the PCV valve , and cleaned out the dielectric grease on all the coils connectors. I finally drove the car. The throttle was sluggish and but after 2500 rpm, it started to feel normal. Idle was rough. When I ran the codes, it was misfiring initially on...
