Re: Antifreeze smell

Head gasket is a culprit for sure. Had that issue with a LR Discovery. Always a smell and never any evidence. Definitely curious as others seem to have similar issues. That's what I though too with my truck loosing coolant for years but it turned out to be a cracked radiator end. Too small to see a...

Re: Antifreeze smell

My truck was loosing a bit of coolantfor years, no idea where or how, no detectable leaks anywhere. Finally one day I saw a small puddle of coolant on the road, it was a cracked radiator end. Replaced the radiator with an all aluminum one. No more coolant loss.

Re: Bouncing Problemos

60pis tire pressure? Get your truck weighed (front and rear seperatly) and set the tire perssure according to the load table for your tires. I have 315/70/17 on my Dodge diesel and run 35 front 32 rear,no bouncing, very nice ride for a 3/4 ton truck!

FS Gauges $100.00

I had no reading on my trans temp gauge so I thought the sensor was bad. Ordered glowshift trans temp and oil pressure gauges. I found the wires to the trans sensor had been torn off by a low branch or something I ran over. I was able to fix that :rockon: So now I bought a matching oil pressure gaug...

Re: New motorcycle

I traded a very nice BMW1100 for my dual purpose bike. The roads are getting too dangerous now days. Seems like no one even stops at stop signs anymore! And for sure turn signals might as well not be installed on most cars as no one seems to use them except me.
