  1. I'm not sure if this has been posted here before but I thought this was a pretty good review of our little terrors.
  2. Just bought a headlight bracket off of him. Nothing but good things to say about the man.
  3. Well finally finished, with the cost of parts and the front end alignment coming to a total of about $600. I wonder how much money I saved by not going to a mechanic... I definitely gave part of my soul to that repair job.
  4. Had a similar problem recently. Car would run rough and would die at idle with no codes. After checking/replacing every part I could think of it turned out to be a bad cam (or was it the crank? I get those two confused) sensor that hadn't been tightened properly and had gotten chewed up by the harmonic balancer. New coil pack and ignition module helped too.
  5. Turns out there was a protective cap on the inside of the fitting that I didn't know was there. It took me three days of straight work to have my father-in-law figure that one out. I don't know how I get out of bed in the morning.
  6. Well I don't think I'll be doing it again. But this is doing my head in... This fitting will not thread at all. the old fitting will thread into the new rack. The new hose will thread into the old rack and pinion. But the new hose will not thread into the new rack. I have been trying to get this fitting to thread for 2 days. No joke. It is identical to the old hose in every way. And don't tell me to use the old hose because I cut it to get the old rack out. I'm totally stuck. I worked offshore for 10 years and have had less trouble with hoses and fittings that have been sitting in s
  7. If this reatta needs another rack and pinion I'm going to drive it into the bayou. 🙂
  8. Welp, looks like I cross threaded the first thread on the rack and pinion thread for the supply line. Yay! Hopefully I can tap the hole were it sits and not have to pull the whole mf-er back out.
  9. I cannot get this power steering pressure line to thread into the rack and pinion for Love or money.
  10. So I'm halfway through replacing my rack and pinion. I've got the old one out and I need to get that plastic grommet (the one that seats the boot to the steering column) off of the old one and put it on the new one. Does anybody have any advice on how to get that thing off without breaking it?
  11. So I'm due for a new rack and pinion. the one that I have is blowing through about a quart of power steering fluid every week or so. the question I have is what other parts should I order to replace while I'm doing the rack and pinion? Thanks in advance fellas!
  12. Problem is I don't have the original any more. When I swapped the alternator out a year ago I turned it in for the core charge. I'm getting the new alternator from O'Reilly's so maybe I'll have better luck. Who knows. But I know I can swap out a "lifetime warranty" alternator once a week and it won't bother me so long as it's not costing me anything. 🙂
  13. Hmmm, interesting. How would I tell? I'm buying an alternator with a lifetime warranty this time so we'll see if it happens again.
  14. So I replaced my alternator in my 89 reatta about a year ago. And for about 6 months I have good charging coming from it. But for the last six months I've watched the charge slowly dwindle from 14 down to 10v. Last night the battery had had enough and the reatta decided to die on my way home. I charged the battery up but the alternator output is still really low. Is there anything I should check before I just replace the alternator? Have any of you guys had bad alternators out of the box? Thanks in advance.
