Re: unhappy with 80w-90 gear oil

I know this is reviving an old post but I am researching which oil to use for cold shifting. Has anyone tried the MT-90 75W90 that Redline suggests?

Re: Banging noise when braking

Hmm, have you checked the bushings for the rear trailing arms (not sure if that is the correct name)? Get in there with a pry bar and check for movement.
Has your helper been able to determine if the noise is coming from one side?

They look great! How are they attached to the towers?

Re: Banging noise when braking

Is there anything else happening when you brake? The steering wheel doesn't pull to one side or anything?

If you are not sure where it is coming from, have someone sit in the back when you brake to tell you if the sound is actually coming from there.

Re: Installing trailer hitch

Nice job. How is the clearance to the body at the center of the bumper? The original ones curve a bit to maintain a clearance.

A closer look at your roof racks please. Did you make them yourself?

Re: Hello From Calahoo!

You are so lucky to have walked away from that accident. There are lots of these cars here in the Kootenays, and a few show up in pretty good shape. A long ways to haul a non runner home. We have a few members in Alberta. They may hear of something coming up for sale. Good luck with your search.

Re: Hello from Slovakia

Nice looking car. Welcome to the club.

If there are still threads left for that cam bolt, maybe you can grind it flat and shim it to the right height. There is not a lot of torque on those bolts.

Re: 2001 Camry 5SFE random overheating

It may also be possible to have the pipe in the overflow bottle connected to the wrong port preventing coolant from being drawn back into the radiator.
