The rubber is not the strength of the tire. The strength comes from the fabric plies under the rubber that the rubber protects from the elements. Cracked rubber allows sunlight, water, and oxygen to...

My cruise control used to do all kinds of weird stuff. Sometimes it would hold, sometimes it wouldn't, sometimes it would totally flip out and open the throttle wide only to then slam it shut again....

The problem is you have to compare the 230 to the engine that replaced it: the 232.

And the 232 is an incredibly good engine by any standard.

8.5:1 compression engines don't ping easily. They need to be lean and/or have their timing advanced way too far to make them ping.

The carburetors were jetted right on the hair's edge of lean from...

Oil is draining out of the filter and back to the oil pan when the engine is off. This also makes the oil read about one quart higher on the dipstick, so the engine will actually be running one quart...

I like turbo mufflers. I've had turbos made by Walker, Thrush, and Dynomax. They're all pretty much the same. They are very quiet but what little sound they make is nice. Add converters and...

Yeah, that would do it. Having the Schrader valve in there wouldn't be a problem if the equalization tube had a depressor inside it to open the valve, but it doesn't.

Keep in mind Jeep changed filters in 1988. Post-1988 engines use the Wix 51058, also called the NAPA Gold 1085.

I've bought and sold dozens if not hundreds of 1085's over the years and not one has...

The expansion valve is flowing far too much refrigerant. It thinks the evaporator outlet line is hot so it's metering lots of refrigerant into the evaporator. This often happens when the thermal...

Some Dana 44's use an inner wheel bearing seal. Mine did. Early production, I suppose. The outer seal is a different style too. It's interesting that the original D44 and M20 bearings were tapered...
