  1. Knocking/clicking sound behind the upper dash on the passenger side

    Engines/Performance/Tech Questions
    That's what it was. Spent most of a weekend doing blind man maintenance putting the new actuator on.
  2. Knocking/clicking sound behind the upper dash on the passenger side

    Engines/Performance/Tech Questions
    When I start the truck, I get a knocking/clicking sound behind the upper dash on the passenger side. Turned off the heater and can still hear the sound. Popped the hood, and nothing is loose behind the washer fluid or coolant and brake lines are tight. Looked behind the glove box and nothing...
  3. P0442

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    I've had the P0442, small evap leak, code for a while. Since this month is my state inspection time, I replaced the Purge Valve solenoid since I had the Vent solenoid replaced a couple of years ago. But before I took it in for inspection, I was cleaning the battery terminals and throttle body...
  4. 2007 I-5 77k original miles-When should I change the spark plugs?

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    Had mine changed at about 90k. Did it myself at about 175k. Fluid was mostly cherry, a little dark, but no trans problems. If you're going to routinely changing the trans fluid, I'd recommend looking into something called the Topsider. Looks like a big oil can but you pump it up while...
  5. P0446 and Coolant Temperature Gauge Problem

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    I basically had the same problem, but never got a code. I'd be driving, and like you said, the coolant gauge would drop to zero and DIC said "AC Off." It would do this for about a half a day, go away, and come back a couple of weeks later, etc, etc etc. To make a long story short, I replaced...
  6. Which rotors

    Brakes
    I never use Economy parts. For something as critical as a rotor, I'd use the best I could afford/justify. Don't see a need for slotted and vented rotors, but if you like them, go for it.
  7. 2.9L Heat Shield nut torque

    Engines/Performance/Tech Questions
    My exhaust manifold heat shield is rattling. Anyone know the torque for the nuts? Things don't look too robust and I don't want to crank on them and strip or crack something.
  8. 1st Gen intake manifold gasket replacement

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    If your just checking/tightening bolts, should be able to only remove battery and box. Part of the process to remove the intake manifold is to remove driver's tire and wheel well cover, but that's only so you can get to the bottom bolt to remove the alternator. Might be able to get to the...
  9. 1st Gen intake manifold gasket replacement

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    As it turned out, all the bolts were totally loose. Tightened all of them up and truck runs great now. We'll see if that is the final fix.
  10. 1st Gen intake manifold gasket replacement

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    Thanks. I'll look this over. Doesn't seem like a fun project though.
  11. 1st Gen intake manifold gasket replacement

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    Had my truck smoked the other day and it looks like an intake manifold gasket leak. I quickly looked at Alldata and it says it’s about 4.5 hour job. Have to remove the TB, batt and batt box, alternator, serpentine belt, driver side wheel and wheel well cover. All so you get access to the...
  12. Still P0171 and now idle surge

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    I’ve been getting an intermittent P0171 code. I’ve cleaned the MAF & MAP with MAF cleaner, TB with TB cleaner, replaced the upstream O2, and sprayed starter fluid all over and can’t find a leak. I’ve reset the PCM a couple of times by removing the neg terminal and removing the PCM B fuse. But...
  13. How To: Change Spark Plugs & Clean The Throttle Body

    How-To: Performance & Maintenance
    I saw a tip on Goss' Garage. Instead of taking the TB off, get an "assistant" to help. After you've taken all the air intake stuff off, have the assistant put the key in the ignition and turn it on, but don't start. Then have them slowly push the gas pedal. The TB valve will open. Then just...
  14. Intermittent P0171 Goose Chae

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    Yea, I'll probably/should clean the MAP while I'm at it. Plan is that while I'm taking everything off to clean TB, go ahead and clean as much of the intake system as I can.
  15. Intermittent P0171 Goose Chae

    I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    Has anyone figured out the answer to an intermittent P0171 code? CEL comes on for a couple of days, goes off for a couple of days; drive to work it’s off; go to lunch it’s on; drive home, it’s off. Engine doesn’t idle or run rough. Last time I checked, was getting 19 MPG in local driving...
