  1. Driving on a rural highway, whiile shifting into 3rd gear my clutch cable snapped. I swear it felt like the cable pedal had broken as my foot went all the way to the floor. This is the first time time this has ever happened to me so I did a repair video.

    I made it on TV: Right This Minute
  3. SInce my other Loyale is down, I was driving the 4WD red sedan and now it has started acting up. Got a code 21 (CTS) and now I will have to chase down the sensor. Symptoms are very hard cold starting needing full pedal to the floor until if fires and keep it revved above 3K until it warms up. Once it warms up you can turn it off and it will start up immediately. Of course it picks the most embarrasing times to display this behavior, like when you are starting up to drive off the ferry and everyone is staring at you revving your engine like a jerk.

    Drivers Side TB Snapped Tonight

    Hey thanks. I actually have done the timing belt (twice) but both times I removed the engine and did a front end seal and the works. I left the timing belt covers off so the next time they were due, I could see how much easier it would be . The Miles Fox videos and writeup on doing it are first class. The first time I did the timing belts, the videos weren't even available and I went to a blog post he had done on the topic. Worked great. Right now the weather is sucking and this car is FWD and I live on a hill. Normally I would have transitioned to the 4WD Loyale by now so this was Karma telling me to do so because snow is predicted. The 4WD Loyale sat 10 months and started right up. Just one reason I love the Loyales.
  5. Got towed home tonight by AAA. Only about a 3 mile trip. I was hoping to get UNO over 200K without a bump, but that is OK. In the spring he will roll once again. Sleep well my friend.

  6. Ok, so I am running no covers and tonight the engine just went dead. Luckily I was able to coast into a parking lot off the freeway. Looked underneath and I see the belt hanging there. This should be an easy fix on this 93 Loyale EA82. I won't attempt it until spring as I normally swap from this one (FWD) to my other Loyale a 4WD, which BTW started up after sitting 10 months! So those of you who have done the timing belt without removing the engine (without TB covers too), please give me all your sweet tips gained from bloodied knuckles and cursing like a sailor. I am old, my skin is thin and doesn't heal as easily any more. I have learned to listen to those who have come before and avoid pitfalls. Chime in folks. Happy Christmas to you all.
  7. It finally happened. Got stranded in UNO. Driver side timing belt snapped. Waiting for tow truck.Happy Christmas eve.

    Nothing has really broken on the UNO. I still daily drive it and am closing in on 200,000 original miles. But I still incorporate it into my activities, my main one being paramotoring. In a review on a cool electric folding paramotor, I wanted to animate it something akin to an Ironman suiting up scene but copying the sounds used in the movie would be a no no (and youtube copyright strike). I decide to use the sound of the automatic seatbelts in UNO in the clip. See if you can regonize the sound. It is in the beginning so if you absolutely hate paramotoring, flying and adventures in the air, you can quickly shut off the screen.

  11. Run your hand along the entire lens glas to see if you have a chip that is letting water get in.

    Meet Ash, my other Loyale Sedan.

    I haven't updated this much since I did the trip and for that I am sorry. Yes, I did get my aircraft into my Loyale sedan! Here is the first video:

    Meet Ash, my other Loyale Sedan.

    Second day of my trip from Seattle to Salton Sea for a paramotor fly in. Ash ran great, no problems with the new brakes. Headed to Salton Sea today from here. Weather is bad for flying so I will probably explore the area in Ash.
