    Need to replace the torque converter in my 06 TB LS 4.2L-I6 4WD. For me, it will be a time consuming effort, but I'm looking forward to it. Realizing there are numerous people out there who have done this alone, I would love to hear from you. The reason for my post is to establish some brief...

    Greetings community. I used a tutorial years ago on how to splice in an aux cable to the existing wire harness that plugged into what i think was an Onstar unit located behind a breakaway panel on the front passenger side (beneath the glove box) on a 2007 Envoy. Long story short, I botched...

    I have a bad cell in my battery and need to replace it. Which battery do you suggest to get? I don't want to over pay for a high end battery that isn't worth it, or buy a cheap battery that wont last long or work well.

    My apologies if this wasn't the right place to post this, or if something incredibly close to this was posted before, but I figured i'd ask you guys a few questions!

  8. OEM Issues
    About 2-3 months ago, I had a bit of a run-in with a guard rail and some black ice, and my '02 Bravada sprung an oil leak from a corroded metal line located on the driver side. The line runs down and connects to a rubber line that goes underneath the fan and radiator and then turns into another...

    I'm going to change the fan clutch in my 2003 Chevy trailblazer EXT. Do I need the special spanner tool to remove the clutch nut from the water pump, or can I use regular wrenches? Thanks, Sean

    I have searched for hours and cant find an answer. Ok so I have a 04 Rainier 5.3, 83k miles. Occasionally when taking off from a traffic light it will shift hard out of 1st. Like it is waiting too long to shift and then finally lets go. Sometimes it feels like a car bumped me from behind...

    For the front...do these things just tap out, do I need heat? Should I go with MOOG, Mevotech, OEM Delco? Prolly change out the lower also, lookls like they will pound out but want to be sure.

    One of my front calipers decided to break, or start leaking or whatever, but its no good anymore. (boy was that interesting driving home..DON'T DO IT) So obviously I'm going to need to buy another caliper. The question is, do I buy just one to replace the bad one, or do I buy a set for the...
