  1. Can someone please re-up this manual? The link gives an error "This file has been downloaded maximum number of times."
  2. Yes this happened to me last night, my car died right in the middle of an intersection as I was waiting to make a left turn. At that point I had been driving for about 3 miles after noticing my headlights basically went out and my ABS and SIR lights lit up...then the car started bucking. I was so close to home I decided to try to make it, but I got about 1 mile from home and I let the RPM drop too much and it died. Before leaving to go home the car was wet from a short hard rain...this is probably the second time the car has seen rain, since it's black and difficult to keep clean. It we
  3. My 4 cyl does something very similar, except it's only when I press the throttle while in a high gear going slowly. And it's only the initial knock, I don't get the subsequent knocks. I was under my car and the left driveshaft makes a clear clicking sound when I rotate it by hand. Sounds like the inner CV joint has no lubrication. I plan to take a look at it this winter. I didn't think the two could be related, but possibly.

  6. Here's my experience. Shortly after I bought my car one of the first things I did was replace the accumulator due to the low accumulator code. After a thorough bleed my ABS light stayed off for about a week or so but then the pedal would get a little mushy and the blinking ABS light would return. Then I tried bleeding again and the same thing, light off for a week then mushy pedal and light back on. I can't tell you how many times I bled my brakes. I put up with this for a few years and then I got PNM's front brake kit so I decided to fix the system. I cleaned the pressure switch myself(
  7. I got the monster 6 front kit installed. I got the HPS pads with the kit...I put the pads in the caliper and they are VERY tight. Has anyone else gotten this kit and noticed the pads went into the caliper very tight? It could be because of the paint on the new pads, not sure...but I needed to position them perfectly centered and I have the top pad spring completely compressed/flattened. I am having problems bleeding my system, squishy pedal going to the floor...but I think it's the internal seals in the Delco Powermaster IIIA system that finally bit the dust. I've spent many hours ove
