    Idea to lower gas prices

    C'mon guys, These hoax emails from a buddy of a guy that works for one big bad corporation that used to work for another big bad corporation said blah blah. Just like Bill Gates will send you cash if you forward this email and some prince in Africa will send you cash if you send him your...

    Inertia Switch to Cut Off Fuel Pump??

    Ooops, Should have read the question more closely - as Bob said - I would not use the switch outside of its intended application - I thought that you were looking for a part for a ford vehicle. Good luck, -Mark

    What is a fair price to install pavers?

    I put in a paver walk in front of my house including two granite steps. It wasn't all that hard. The most difficult part was digging down 10+ inches is rocky soil to prepare the walk. Gravel, landscape cloth, crushed stone. The pavers I used were only $.49 but the granite steps were...

    Rjc Plate Install/throttle Body Gasket?

    I bought a box of longer bolts when I did my power plate. I forget the size but it is metric:) Do a search, that is how I found the correct size. Ordered a box from McMaster Carr as the local hardware stores didn't have them. -Mark

    Braille?

    It must have been for the blind UAW worker that installed my door trim - forgot to take the insulation off when the Concert Sound II speakers were put into the door. The insulation was put right over the speaker!!! Great GM quality :rolleyes:

    Sorry union folks, but this is a problem

    Check the news, GM sold controlling interst of GMAC. GM lost 10B last YEAR, not in a quarter. GM isn't going anywhere - it will be a different GM but it will NOT go away. Remember they have over 20B in cash. GM still sells more cars/trucks than anyone in the world. It won't be easy - Exec...

    Exxon Chairman Gets $400 Million Retirement Package Amid Soaring Gas Prices

    Lot's of responsibility to run the biggest company in the world. Just like pretty much anything else, the top of heap gets paid the most - Hollywood, sports etc. Oil companies make $$ getting the oil out of the ground, not as much selling it at the pumps - that is just the part the public...

    rjc plate

    Make sure you get a scan tool (Turbolink, scanmaster etc) to monitor knock. Do not push the car in that condition - serious damage may result. It sounds like the car has been sitting, change ALL fluids and fuel filter.

    UNGN is right - hop on a plane and go to Europe - more diesel cars sold than gas and they have particulate filters and are quiet, clean and have tons of torque. Great mileage too. The Chrysler 300 Diesel kicks butt. I wish they sold it here:(

    hood mount FP guage

    I have had the K-B gauge on my car for 9 years. I am not crazy about the "boy racer" look but I saved my engine when the vacuum line fell of my fuel pressure regulator. Someday I will get an isolator so I can mount it in the car.
