Re: It sounds like the passenger side wheel is going to

Hard to tell what is going on by that description. Do you have new cartridges to drop in there? There is usually a tablespoon of light oil in the strut when original cartridge is removed.

Re: How to tell the year of à tranny?

Re: How to tell the year of à tranny?

Re: How to tell the year of à tranny?

Keep in mind you can interchange transmissions, its the differential that is different 3.73 vs 4.1 gear ratio. You can separate the transmission from the differential.

Re: Spark plugs that complicated?

All I do is check the gap and adjust to .040 if needed.
Never heard of orientation.
I worry more about getting plugs out that seem stuck. If I get one like that I work it out by going back and forth and squirting light oil around base. Over and over

Re: Stuck in third?

If your tranny is the late one (around 1985-1988) it has screws holding the aluminum shift forks to the shift rods. The screw for 3rd/4th gear fork has a habit of loosening and sometimes falls out. This could be your problem especially if you had symptoms of weird shifting leading up to getting stuc...

Re: bad CV joint or something else?

Sounds like the left axle. Looks and feel of axle will not always tell you if its bad. Increased problems on acceleration has been the axle in my experience.
