Re: Brand new transmission internals!?!

Well, let's hope it's legitimate. Just got some bushings for the shifter. It didn't ask me for my credit card info but I did sign into the site using my Google account. Which was probably a bad move.

Re: door panel clip?

I ruined all of the female type ones in the door for the rub strips. I ended up using small circular black rubber gromets from harbor freight. I don't think you'll be able to find any of those oem ones.

Re: Corolla knock.

Hey Bailey, Compression numbers point to a failed head gasket between 3/4 and that sounds more like a “knock” than a ping. The best check for “ping” or detonation would be to retard your timing some and see if it changes. I’ve never done a leak down test, but most say it is a better diagnostic eval...

Corolla knock.

Posting here in case anyone might know what the hell this knock could be. It only does it under load. It sounds like it's coming from the front of the head. I thought it was the rod bearings and just replaced them before filming this. My mechanic buddy told me is was ping due to bad gas. I drained t...
