    Took it to Autozone, and they said it either needs coolant (doesn't seem to), or is a thermostat or coolant sensor. Had...

    I'd do that if I could get my existing unit out. I'm afraid of breaking something. Once out, I will still need to figure out how to get disks out of it. I guess a hammer/chisel would do it.

    2 questions:

    1) If I do the swap, can the cover remain off when testing? (I haven't looked yet, but am assuming a yes here.)

    2) Should I disconnect battery first?

    Thank you.

    timing belt: do it yourself?

    Well, it speaks for itself.

    Is this beyond the shadetree mechanic?

    Anyone have diagrams or directions? Some cars are easy, and some not. Which is this? (I think I have an idea.)

    Thanks.

    The BFG AT KO are absolutely one of the BEST snow tires I have ever had, and many, MANY agree with that sentiment.

    I thought the M+S stood for Mud and Snow, which means snow tires.

    No?

    So, what do people think of the General Altimax HP?

    The Tirerack has these in 215/65R16 for $93, plus $84.86 shipping.
