  1. side wall cracking on 2 year old Good Year Viva 2's??

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    I worked at a Wal-Mart tire & Lube center for over a year. Almost all tires sold off of the racks there are all budget tires. Cheap. Almost all Viva 2 and Douglas X - trac were trash within a year or so. Walmart danced their way around this by stating that the Mileage and wear warranty were...
  2. Spotted 3rd Gen TCCA Decal the other day

    Southern Chapter Forum
    Was wondering if it was the TCCA member who still owned it and if he/she was still on here. 3rd Gen sedan, Green (I believe), with white(?) TCCA bullhead decal on driver side fender. Located in Liberty, Tx. Just thought I would reach out and say hi.
  3. Check Your Lugnuts!

    Maintenance and Repair
    I've expected to see this a few time in the past month. Mainly trucks though. Usually raised too. I have seen 3 trucks within the past month with at least one of the wheels doing / \ / \ / \ and driving like they stole it (60-70 through a 45) almost as though they didn't even notice it.
  4. 99 3.0 Vulcan Wagon surging upon starting in afternoon

    Maintenance and Repair
    Had a similar issue when I got my D-Tech. A few of the vacuum lines were dry rot and collapsed. Replaced the ones I could get to/see and it runs a lot better now.
  5. Found some decent looking Taurus headlights for under $80 shipped

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    Rockauto sells as "Various Manufacturer" but as far as I have seen only TYC makes aftermarket replacements for the vehicle. Did a quick look but couldn't trace said lamps number back to a "brand." More than likely they will be TYC as well though.
  6. Sable has odd surging idle sound/dies/difficult to shift

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Or maybe a bad pump? Does the car have a schrader valve on the top of the engine? If so check to see if it is pressurized when the car dies. Should shoot out. I am in the process of replacing my pump after figuring out it was dying(wasn't pumping). If so I would replace filter and then look at...
  7. Car wont start after killing it.

    Maintenance and Repair
    Thanks for the info Mad. I was wondering about the sheet. Random question. What is the box attached to the underside of the spare tire housing?
  8. Car wont start after killing it.

    Maintenance and Repair
    Ordered a Bosch pump and strainers, as well as a new fuel filter and hood lifts, from rockauto.com this morning. Just finished dropping the tank. I watched ETCG's video beforehand to see what i was getting into. No problems aside from the "c" clips on the sender line (need to pick up a new one.)...
  9. Vinyl Protectant Issue

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    Dust and or chemicals left on the panels?
  10. New Taillight Idea

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    Well... Im going to use my girlfriends taurus as a project. She wants a new paint job and it needs it. lol. But, while I am at it, I will be adding BiXenon projectors from another thread here and I will be customizing the tail lamps. The lip on her current center tail is busted and I scored on...
  11. High Beam Indicator Light

    Maintenance and Repair
    Is this a new issue or been going on since you bought it?
  12. Switching to HID

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    I have the TYCs for my 99 and have no complaints. Thought I might have to reseal as you do with most aftermarkets, but I have yet to run into any leaks
  13. Can anyone confirm this turn signal color law?

    Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual
    Texas has pretty much the same law. It is ok to have white foward turn signals. I can understand HIDs in reflector housing and Blue Hids getting tickets but I didnt figure Yellow lamps would be ticketed due to the fact that some road lighting lamps use to be yellow.
  14. Car wont start after killing it.

    Maintenance and Repair
    It is indeed the duratech. I was trying to figure out if I could just buy the pump aside from the assembly and what the pros/cons of each would be. At first my eyes set me on the Denso parts because of name, then Motorcraft, then back to the Bosche because of the prices, lol. So could I just buy...
  15. Car wont start after killing it.

    Maintenance and Repair
    I believe it is the original pump and 137,000 miles on the car. I thought it would be the pump. Did not think about listening for the prime, but I don't remember hearing it. I take it I would need the assembly? Any particular brands I should watch out for or any recommended? Ordering from Rockauto.
