Paint, skip primer, twice, 1st= light/medium coat, 2nd= full coat, 4 wheels = 1 can (usually)
Done, plan on a repaint...

Re: Wheels/Tires

They should fit, but your speedometer may be off.

Test while idleing from cold to hot:

Using the scanner, watch the inicated engine temp

Also use a infrared temp gun on the fitting (point @ sensor) and watch/compare.

What are you getting?

Pop the line at the booster, plug the line.

Test, do NOT drive!

Better, right?

Re: EVAP CEL code and cannot fill up fuel tank

The valve shuts off the gas when it builds pressure. So it doesn't vent.

But you have a leak.

That code says it's chacoal canister, so I'd start there. Look for obvious damage.

Can you...

When it happens because you press the brakes, booster. Not the lines.

Re: Will this rims fit my 2001 sedan accord?

Please do not call the wheel a rim. A wheel has a rim, but it is not what you call the whole thing.

Re: Intermittent heat: works when it wants too

You can see the heater core box under the dashboard. Measure the temp of that and the radiator with th heat set on max when it works and doesn't.

Re: Brakes in front grabbing

A sound like that may be runout. So check the thickness at ~8 places around the rotor, and runout.

Re: Engine sputters and stalls on startup then runs fine

Lets wait on cleaning the IACV. We've tried every angle I know of.

If you were in Florida I'd tell you to bring it by my house because I'm so frustrated with it.

Re: 1157 Switchback led bulbs

Uh...

A bulb like that has 4 wires. 2 are ground, so the contact has a contact for each that connects both to ground.

The other end has left for one, right for the other. That is the ones you...

Re: Engine sputters and stalls on startup then runs fine

I'm still thinkin the IACV is gunked up.

Unhook the vacuum line from the brake booster. You are basically creating a vacuum leak. Start it, does it still stall? Do NOT drive like this!

Re: Engine sputters and stalls on startup then runs fine

Open up the old one. They can be opened without damaging them!

The problem is cracked solder joints, so look at all of them, the cracks are easy to see.

They are easy to fix, too. I have...

Re: Engine sputters and stalls on startup then runs fine

If the light never comes on it, may not be working.

Coming on when you start the car is a self-test kinda thing. They all do that. It's so that you can see that it works.

Re: Need some advice on rims and wheels.

IDK, my inner fenderwells are scarred to hell!

If you go 235 check your tire height. You may need /40 or something.

Yes, my current tires are taller than they should be, but I wanted the change.

Some cars have a coolant temp switch, for the fan, and a sensor, for the ECM. Ours has one, just a sensor, and the ECM controls the fan.
