Wow, are you missing a heat shield under the car at that point, or is new exhaust routed any differently than the stock system? I know the Florida state police had trouble w/ Mustangs starting fires on the median while parked in the grass doing radar and investigating accidents years ago, maybe about the year of your car. They lost several cars. I believe it was the catalytic converter that was torching the grass. How about installing a heat shield in the area you had the overheating? And don't park in the grass. Do not know what else could cause it though. good luck and let me know how you make out. countrycurt0

I have an 83 camaro z28 with a 5.0 305 engine, why does it sputter when accelerating past 30 miles per hour


Could be any number of things. Bad coil or weak spark, low fuel pressure or clogged fuel filter. A breakdown of the ignition subsystems equivalent to points and firing sensors.

You should check EGR by very temporarily plugging vacuum line and see if performance is changed. Sometimes blocked exhaust Catalytics or collapsed muffler baffles will plug up the exhaust and require too much push to clear the pipes.

Check your exhaust system for leaks holes in the pipes or gasket problems at pipe connections and exhaust maniflod It won't be loud if the problem is befind the muffler in front it will be .You can usauly feel the exhuast comeing out if you cheak it right after you start the engine and the pipes are still cold because the exhauts will be hot . Try to pin point ware the noise is comeing from first like the day before .Don't get burned these things get vary hot

I have a 2004 Land cruiser and changed the right rear brake cyl and brake shoes . What is the proper procedure to bleed the rear brake system. Thank you for your help.


  1. Check the fluid level in the reservoir after bleeding each wheel. Add DOT3 fluid, if necessary.
  2. If the master cylinder was disassembled or if the reservoir becomes empty, bleed the air from the master cylinder as follows:
    1. Disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder.
    2. Slowly depress the brake pedal and hold it.
    3. Block off the outlet plug with your finger, and release the brake pedal.
    4. Repeat 3 or 4 times.

  3. Bleed the brake starting with the one furthest from the reservoir and then the next furthest, etc.
  4. Depress the brake pedal several times, then loosen the bleeder plug with the pedal held down.
  5. At the point when fluid stops coming out, tighten the bleeder plug to 11 Nm (8 ft. lbs.), then release the brake pedal.
  6. Repeat until all the air in the fluid has been bled out.
  7. Repeat the procedure to bleed the air out of brake line for each wheel.
  8. Check the fluid level and add DOT3 fluid if necessary.

Upgrading from stock exhaust to flow master cat back.....how much more preformance?


You will gain a marginal performance gain from the aftermarket exhaust system. Maybe 8-10 rear wheel horsepower. The real benefits would be the better exhaust note, but of course, that's a personal preference.

Try checking the exhaust flow when someone else is pushing down on the gas petal.The farther the petal gos down,the more exhaust should be coming out. I replaced my catalitic convertor at 44000 miles, it was clogged. I had them install a high flow type.

My infrared remote does not work. I have an Audi A6 1995


Do you have memory seats as well? If so follow these steps I am going to refer to the keys as A and B as you have 2 of them
1) Unlock car with key A
2) Turn ignition into ON position with key A and roll down the window
3) Point Key B at IR Sensor and Click twice (perform both clicks under 5 seconds)
4) Turn off ignition and pull Key A out
5) Turn ignition into ON position with Key B
6) Point Key A at IR Sensor and Click once
7) Turn off ignition and Pull Key B out

Key A should be programmed as the Master Seat Program and Key B should be programmed for the Secondary seat program
So when you set your memory seats Key A is for Memory Position 1 and Key B is for memory position 2
if you don't have memory seats then you only have to point the receiver at the sensor and click once. That should just sync the IR Frequency and Codes
