I've been working alot and kind of forgot about this. Ive been looking into the FWD option tho and was wondering if it would do damage to anything. But since I hear that you've been driving it for a year with no problem I think I'm going to give it a shot. I just hope that I don't find out it has to do with the front differential when I do this. I'd be very mad, but it does seem like the majority of the problem is from the rear end so I think I'll be alright. I'll still fix it eventually if I decide to keep the car, I'm currently looking to possibly trade it, just haven't gotten a good enough offer yet.

The guy at a local sandwich shop asked me how much I wanted for my car and I told him he didn't want it. Hahaha. He still seemed interested, maybe I'll go back and find out what he is willing to pay/trade for it.

The "FWD thing" in this case means to put a fuse in the fuse holder marked "FWD" by the passenger strut tower. It will give you an answer in 30 seconds.

Now... I can't help you with your issues except for one thing: DON'T use the regular Simple Green on your engine. It does corrode aluminum really bad (ask me how I learned this :( ), which is a shame because it cleans really well. There's an automotive version of the Simple Green that is supposed to be Ok with aluminum, though.

One other thing: I don't know you, but I wouldn't get under a car held by ramps on a soft surface. Personally, I would rather not make it to the Darwin awards.

I'm not going to use simple green, I have some other stuff that works great... Just have to quit being lazy and do it. I tried plain old degreaser and didn't do a damn thing... And as for the ramps I've been doing it for the 4 years I've been working on my cars, the ground isn't really soft... But thanks for the concern. I'm going to pop a fuse in today and see what happens.
