    Is there another way to do the rear motor mount? Throttle Body studs also Sheared.

    Sorry to revive an old thread, what are the socket sizes required to remove the mount?

    Sheared bottom two studs on Throttle Body

    I thought that part of the throttle body was directly integrated into the intake manifold? How would I remove it? Could I just drill through it, remove the stud and just get a similar size screw and get a nut on the other side of it so it's like the top two screws?

    A/C doesn't work.

    sorry for the late reply but what do you mean when you say the coil is open? Is that something I can check and replace?

    Sheared bottom two studs on Throttle Body

    As the title says I Sheared the bottom two studs on Throttle Body, and as a result, the car isn't operating at it's highest capacity. There is a tiny vacuum leak which really is not benefiting me. It's causing the car to sometimes even misfire. How can I fix it? Is the stud replaceable? Should I...

    A/C doesn't work.

    I could see that as two problems, either the compressor clutch itself is broken, or the electrical component that activates it is broken. If it's just the compressor clutch then I can take it off and replace it, if it's the electrical component. That's within the compressor itself, and requires...

    A/C doesn't work.

    A/C blows hot air on any setting, so logically I went for a recharge yesterday, found out I was full on refrigerant. Checked all fuses,nothing was wrong, replaced all of them. I tested to see if the compressor was engaging, the pulley definitely spins, but the three smaller circles in the pulley...

    Do you have a recommendation on how to remove that plastic bracket? I know it has to be broken, but how should I do it? attack it with a pair of scissors or something?

    Is there another way to do the rear motor mount? Throttle Body studs also Sheared.

    As title states, is it possible to attack the rear motor mount on jack stands from under the car? Tried it the other way around. Couldn't get the intake manifold off, and did some sort of damage to my throttle body in the process, I was tightening the two nuts onto the studs sticking out on the...

    Flex Fuel sensor install?

    I read that with installing the MP3 ECU I NEED to run 91, which is not a problem for me, however on Occasion I do let my brother borrow my car, and he literally for the life of me will not believe that It requires Premium fuel after I swap the ECU. I'm 900% sure he will put 87 in and there will...

    WTB protege5/MP3/MSP Black Front Bumper

    I encountered a slight hiccup on a road, and have slightly messed up my bumper, want to get a replacement, that's in pretty good condition. I don't want to buy a prepainted new one for 400$. Haven't had any luck at pick n' pull, hoping someone here took there's off a while ago, and has it just...

    Am I really down on power?

    I just got an ELM327 OBD2 scanner and saw that I'm getting the code P0660. Which is the VICS solenoid malfunctioning/being shot. (Is it the green one or the white one? I've seen people say both on the forum, already ordered a replacement FS05-18-741) I see that it activates at about 4750 and it...

    Rx7 Fuel Injectors? What piggybacks can the p5 run? SRI o2 sensor?

    I'm aware the MP3 advances the timing and I NEED to run premium, but I'm talking about creating tunes for E85, and regular race gas, hence why I'm talking bigger injectors. I'm planning on getting a better fuel pump and larger fuel injection line.

    Do you have a smog buddy down in orange county? I'd definitely drive all the way down for one, all the buddies up here are way too expensive for it to be worth it.
