Noah, if I remember right you are a Ford Mechanic, I would like to ask you about my sons 1996 Ford F-150. It has a six cyl. engine and it will start and run fine, but when the engine is turned off after driving it awhile it does not want to restart, the battery will turn it over fine, it just wont fire up. We can let it set a while and it will restart and run rough for a few second and then run fine. Do you have any suggestions what I might check?

Hey Nipper, looks like I'm gonna have to sell my lift kit before I could even install it. Keep your ears open if you hear anyone asking. Robert

I have a 83 subaru GL that has some snot that converges in the airfilter. I was wondering what this means it is green and thick it also is coming out of the hoses from the valve covers. the car runs great despite this problem but i was wondering what it means? I was starting to think that the head might be cracked but no oil in the radiator? Any help would be apreciated.

" Re: My Swap. EA82 5sd DR Trans into BRAT done. Let me know if you have any questions about the swap. Think I have about 5000 miles on since I put in the 5 speed and no problems. Only trade off is gaining about 150rpm on the freeway, my mileage didnt change on way or the other." hi thanks for all your info i am dissapointed that the engine revs higher after the five speed conversion i was keen to see if fuel consumption would be improved and i thought the revs would go down. Ahh..well. Thanks again for your excellent posts
