A little bit higher consumption and more tension on the timing, you have to be carefull about timing belt and valve gaps.

    valve gaps are adjustable on nearly every vehicle, you need a gap filler and a little knowledge about it plus manufacturer's specs. Audi has been always considered as a reliable car and as long as you maintain it right it is a great car to have,

95 Path finder se ac button no working. No ac at all. Previous owner installed radio since last time he used ac. How can I fix this other than adding freon?


adding Freon may not be the answer but will cause unnecessary problems if not done by a specialist. Have an accredited ac specialist look at the problem as the ac may not be working because of a leak in the system. He may have also used the power wire for the radio and so there is less current available to work the ac.

What Performance Engine modifications can i get done to it


The possibilities are limitless, I have done many many swaps. My favorite is the H22A, thats a 1992-1996 Prelude into this vehicle. But you can pick almost any fast 4-cylinder front wheel drive honda, the integra GSR is pretty awesome, uses a B16 Vtec engine. The only thing you need is money. :)

Please describe your is there a preformance chip in my 1993 chevy k1500 4x4 and if so where and how much do they cost i was told there was one and it would raise the rpm before shifting and could get me...


Yes there is a performance chip.. Its in the ECU,, its what controls the air fuel ratio, and other things.. Modifying the chips programming will increase performance,, as well as fuel consumption. There are 2 ways to modify this..

1.) purchase a pre modded ecu and switch it with yours..

2.) A mechanic can reprogram the ECU with the modified programming..

In eighter case you will need to find a mechanic who specializes in customization and modification. I'm sure there is one in your area or atleast someone who knows of one..

I strongly suggest you dont attemp the mods yourself because it can damage the ecu, engine , transmission and really mess things up if you make any mistakes..

The modification is done with a diagnostic tool which is capable of reprogramming the EProm in the ECU. The Mechanic will already have the modified firmware for the device,, which he will then burn onto the eprom..

Just bought a 1999 mazda mx5 2 days ago and found it has a knock type rattle in the engine that lasts about 3 seconds on a cold start. Regards Bruce. ps cars done 160,000ks.


it seems the oil is too thick. The previous owner or the dealer may have added thick oil treatment. And the pump has to work extra hard to get it circulating. Change the oil and filter. Use 10w40 oil when refilling. do not overfill. It has many miles too , so it could also be that the oil pump is beginning to get clogged.

I can't get my factory radio to play while my factory dvd is playing through the speakers on my 2003 town and country


That is intentional; the car radio audio is disabled while the player is working. The previous owner of my Town and Country had a modification done that disabled this by switching off the signal to the radio, so the kids can use the headphones, and I can get my talk radio fix on long trips. It was done by the dealer, so they should be familiar with the procedure.

I just purchased a dodge 1500 ram 2005 w/hemi 5.7. how could i tell if a fuel preformence chip haS BEEN INSTALLED


THIS VEHICLE USES A "FLASH PROGRAM". THERE IS NOT A REPLACEABLE CHIP ON THIS MODEL. PERFORMANCE PROGRAMMING IS DONE BY RE-PROGRAMMING. YOU CAN CHECK FOR ANY MODIFICATIONS DONE TO PROGRAMMING AT YOUR LOCAL SPEED SHOP. HOPE THIS HELPS!!

My 2007 cobalt won't start-displays ''Engine Power Reduced''...what's wrong with it?


The computer has detected a fault in the emissions system that could damage the engine. It disables the engine so you cannot drive it and damage it. It must go to the shop. This sometimes happens after an aftermarket exhaust system is installed and it was not done properly or if engine modifications were done improperly. This can clog the catalytic converter and cause higher back pressure.
