I have the CLK 550 Cabriolet. The engine for this car puts out 382 hp and 390 ft. lbs. of torque--the power is smooth and linear, and the exhaust makes a nice growl when you really get on it. Unfortunately, the suspension lags far behind the engine--the suspension is way too soft for what is supposed to be a sporty car. Supposedly, the car can be ordered with a sport suspension from the factory, but no dealers in the entire L.A. area had any in stock--they all said the sport suspension could only be had if it was special ordered--since I didn't want to wait three months for the car--big mistake--I took one off the lot. Basically, it is a very good car, but for the price--msrp of $71k--it is lacking in a few areas. I'm happy with the car & i Recommed it.

I'm considering buying a 1987 Toyota supra turbo. 81k miles. What major or minor issues can I expect or need to ask owner about ?

If you ask the owner for the faults he has had expect an out right lie as to nothing is wrong with the vehicle. With such low mileage better to ask why he is selling it. I suggest that the seller produces proof that he actually owns the car and is capable of selling it legally. Next take it for a good run ( not around the block) and be critical in listing all noises and problems you find. Next take it to a reputable mechanic for a frank appraisal of the faults and see what he comes up with. Any must do repairs should be deducted from the asking price as you will be stuck with that cost.. Considering the age and the listed mileage I am suspicious that the mileage has been tampered with as most cars average 15 to 25 k per year Be very cautious also because the parts supply for an 87 car has dried up and you will most likely only get second hand parts ( Panels)

How do i bleed the coolant system on my 1994 5.8l f250 4x4

I strongly recommend buying the Haynes manual. The procedure for changing the engine coolant is just complex enough on F250s that the diagram really helps. AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts should have a new one for $25 or less, or you could try for an even cheaper copy. Considering the penalty for messing up is an overheated, seized engine that's just become a big paperweight and the Haynes has information on lots of other repairs for the truck, I think $25 is a bargain.

Any time a seller says, "IT just needs this....." you should be suspicious. Get it checked out by a professional mechanic. Read this post

Dyson dc 25 bottom filter keeps blowing off.

Mine did the same thing - unfortunately, that means it's dirty. When they recommend a good cleaning of the filters every 3 mths - they mean it. The filters may not look dirty, but if you skip cleaning them (like I did) - those tiny little particles build up & then clog the filter. The bottom filter is not cheap - you can pick it up online for about $55, considering the alternative (running the Dyson w/o the bottom filter - and yes it will run without it) which may result in damaging that very expensive motor - go buy a new filter. It's cheaper than buying a new Dyson or replacing a burned up motor.

Considering buying

HI, The Ventrue SL is a great vehicle. the transmission issues concern user or driver faults. this transmission is very sensitive and, it requires schedule maintenance on a regular basis. if you miss or neglect to maintain the trans, you will have issues. Just keep up the maintenance schedule and, the trans will be fine. Overall, its a great vehicle.
