Hey fastboyz, the car in the pic is a replica of a conceptual car I built 20 years ago based on the 34 deuce from "american graffitti" for a fellow by the name of Dan Hayden (from parts unknown :) clandestine street racing was very much an underground sport back then as you may well know, Back then the car was sold ready for paint, it featured a titanium/aluminum frame along with series ll frame connectors,and 4 wheel disc brakes, a 540 cid chevy (cast block) and dialed in at an aspirated 1100 hp backed up by a semi-automatic 3spd and strange rigged quick change rear end ( 4:10 - 5:12) it was a rocket to say the least and a lot of fun, it took 16 months to build and an investment of $60,000.00 back then, when I bought the car it was a shell I had an apple crate for a seat and chained a 283cid and 2 spd powerglide to the frame I would cruise the country roads drinkin beer.I originally traded an old honda 504cc motorcycle for the deuce if you can imagine,sure wish I had it now :) take care Paul
until next time,Mike

Why doi have a winding sound in my SUV in almost every gear

Sounds like a blown head gasket - This will damage the transmission of the SUV if the hoses where blown off the radiator . Had it happen to a car. When the gasket is blown pressure builds in the vehicles cooling system until it builds to a point where it blows the hoses off the pipes or blows up your radiator. The transmission may also have a cooling system that has been damaged from the pressure build up. Get a radiator dude to put a cap on your radiator with a pressure gauge and then run the engine and see if the pressure climbs on the cooling system.

I want to change my coolant in v6 camry

normally , there is a drain vave at the bottom of your radiator on your car, and a person should wait till a cars cooling system is cool enough to drain, you can do this by opening up the drain valve and letting the antifreeze run into a safe container, [and flushing radiator out if you choose to do so,] but aftewards , make sure drain valve is closed, and you can refill the cooling system with the proper type of anti freeze that your cars manufacture calls for, afterwards, start car up and wait till thermostat opens, [ you can tell by your temperature gage,] and add additional antifreeze if needed, but make sure car does not over heat while running, if so shut it off and wait till it cools down, could be a air pocket in the system, will have to wait later to restart to allow air pocket to be relieved from system.

2003 malibu cooling fans don't work. I have replace the relay and the temp sensor and still nothing. When ever I disconnect the temp sensor the fans come on and work normally, but later in the day I see...

okay pull the temp sensor connector ( disconnect it) and turn car on if the fans run then its the temp sensor.... part # wt3000.
Theres also 3 relays that turn the fans on in the fuse box cooling mode fan relay @15 which is part number 7234. and cooling one # 1 which is 3604, and cooling fan #2 which is 7236.
I have the same car...give me a fan clutch cooling system anyway of the week. simple and efective no problems.

Volvo 1994 Radiator

hi my name is paul
these days most cars have a expansion tank under the bonnet or hood
this is were you fill it up with water it looks like a plastic bowl with a screw lid
car manufacturers use expansion tanks because as the water in your engine warms up it expands under high pressure and fills up the expansion tank with excess water when the engine cools down the water cools and it shrinks and goes back into the cooling system hope this information has been usefull
regard paul
