    Tire Pressure

    I was just curious - because in terms of expressing an 'OK range' - the tire pressure would want to be somewhere between the car's factory sticker number as the minimum and maximum inflation pressure on the sidewall of the tire as the maximum. So your aim for "32 or a bit more" is right on...

    CVT Transmission Service

    The name "drain & fill" would seem to mean just what it says: Pan and it's contents removed, trans filter and gasket replaced, pan re-secured, fluid level topped up. As opposed to a "transmission flush" or "power flush" transmission service at the dealer or mechanic shop. I have yet to do my...

    2014 Corolla s CVT behavior

    If the ATF fluid level is correct I would want a transmission expert to inspect and diagnose. It seems to me that a jerk taking off is either a pressure valve sticking or maybe more likely to a pressure not coming up to actuation pressure fast enough. Of course, because I am a cheap bastard...

    Tire Pressure

    Where did you get the 32 number from? From the door post sticker or the tire sidewall ? I ask because the factory (doorpost) numbers tend to be focused on ride/comfort rather than on tire/chassis performance and extended tire life. Whatever The number - if it were me - I would inflate to...

    Reupholster center armrest in 2014 LE ?

    Interior came as cream/yellow fabric. It stained a lot (sloppy girls! <g>) so I changed to leather. How does the lid for the center armrest come apart to replace the fabric? I took the whole lid off to work on it in the house but there are no screws on the bottom. It must snap together...

    1993 - Charging the A/C - is There a High Idle Solenoid?

    How much should I expect to pay for Amsoil ? I run Mobil 1 in all my Toyotas but I run my Tacoma especially hard and fast and have been thinking about switching it to Amsoil. I think it takes a 5W20 weight. You see this stuff - how much should I expect to pay per quart? PHM ------

    Stock Tire Size

    Two sizes were stock for that car - The car was available with either 175-65R14 or 185-65R14 So the fronts are right and the rears are technically wrong. I have a 1993 and installed 185-75R14 - because they are taller than 65's. I was hoping to improve the gas mileage and I think I...
