Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

Yes. Maverick is on the problem at the time of this writing. He just emailed me about joining me in an outing to find the nozzle. Time to do it. I haven't been to a junk yard in a long time.

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

My left side windshield washer got clogged and I tried air pressure, but it didn't work. So I set about rectifying the situation. This involves removing both wiper arms and then the big plastic cowl cover. While attempting to remove the nozzle from the rubber hose, it broke in half. :cry: I thought ...

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

Still no resolution. I had to add about 1.5 cans of R134a to top off the AC system. 123,700 miles now, so I'm adding refrigerant about every 500 miles now. I guess it's time to get serious and do some hard looking for signs of the leak.

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

Back to the AC leak again. I used Jim's new sniffer tool and found that the low pressure port schrader valve is leaking when the cap is removed. So I waited until a cool morning and enlisted the intrepid Randi to help. Her job was to put her gloved thumb over the port after I remove the valve. I kne...

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

I didn't see any mention of exploring a fuel injector solenoid as the source of the ticking and possibly the loss of power.

Re: 2016 Genesis

This past weekend I did my first oil change on Randi's hot rod at 22,200 miles. This was quite a project. This car has panels underneath covering all of the drivetrain with no access to the oil filter or drain. I believe later models does provide access covers for this purpose. There are front and r...

Way to go, Fred. Bitter-sweet end for the night but dipping into the 14's should put a smile on your face. :mrgreen:

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

The new front sway bar link bushings made a noticeable difference in cornering. I didn't realize how bad they had gotten. The brakes are now perfect again, too. It's like driving a new truck! :D

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

I didn't realize they were remarkable. I've been looking at them for about 9 years now. They are sturdy plastic and provide good support to the link assembly.

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

I had started to detect a slight shudder when braking, so I decided to take a close look at the brakes. It had been 56K miles and 7 years since they were last serviced. The pads, both front and rear were down to 1/4 inch thickness. I decided that this was a good time to tackle the job. I measured th...

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

I was thinking of this fire and how you put it out with your shirt. Then I wondered about a fire blanket rather than an extinguisher. I'm not sure what comes out of an extinguisher, but you might not want to find out, that after the fire, you have a substantial cleanup and possible damage from the c...

Fred, it looks like you might get a little taller after wearing that neck brace. :mrgreen:
