Bruh, there goes my entire base salary on something out of my control, and here I thought Lexus was the gold standard of reliability.

he has the right idea, but wrong thing. unless these new oils heat up quicker or something, oil needs to be at operating temp (and temp gauge only measures coolant temps,usually after it's left the engine, and not the oil temp which is what matters here) before you can start hammering on it
i know a guy at work who almost always revs his camry to 5-6k rpm on startup. no idea why, but the poor engine sounds like a goddamn diesel lmao

These are the people you are forced to share roads with (and threads apparently) who will wax on and on about endangering the public without realizing that without healthy outlets for automotive passion, this is what happens. Not one person depicted in that webm has ever attempted to lobby for a local, affordable track-nor has anyone in this thread that’s saying this is nigger behavior. I hope one of these guys slams into you at 120 and kills everyone involved.

It's cope for engineers and drivers who lack the talenttodesign and drive a car well. Just have the computer fire as much torque as each wheel can hold and it won't matter that you have Mr. Magoo saddled on ablue ribbon hog (snout & all.)

Is 23k for an '03 Corvette C5 z06 50th anniversary edition a good deal? There's a guy in my town selling one for that price. It seems like a really good deal, but I also if there's something with it since I'm sure he could get a lot more for it than 23k.
>>
>>25925196
Depends on the miles and condition but it looks reasonable for one in that 60-70k mileage range.
>>
>>25925214
It's got less than 10k miles on it according to the seller.
>>
>>25925221
that’s a steal then
>>
>>25925238
And that makes me think there's something wrong with the car. Why would you sell it for less than what you know it's worth unless it's got problems?
>>
>>25925221
It sounds like too good of a deal. I'd be skeptical and check into it. Might have a salvage title.

Recently changed front brake pads and discs on my Lexus IS 200 only to find out that it wasn't the issue after all. Now I have to swap out these shitter bolts as well. Anything to keep in mind while swapping them out?

>>25922905
Shit was seized alright

Had to burn out the old outer boot before engineering up a piece that could go into the brake line hole with a zerc in the other end to pop out the piston using a grease gun

Worked like a charm. Polished up the piston and caliper walls, no longer sticks. I'd never do this on a car that was going to be on the road for long, but this one is going to the wreckers in a week or two

Bent wheels and internally fucked up tires are common. Jack up one corner at a time and spin each wheel and just look at it. If you see any moving irregularities when the wheel is spinning, you probably have an issue. The steel belts inside the tire can move or break. This fucks up the balance and causes all kinds of vibration. Old wheels have been through a lot. If they get a big enough bend in the inside or outside edge, it cannot be balanced out. The wheel must be retrued with a lathe or replaced.

>>25922690

I think jeeps are known for subpar suspension and steering design regardless. Larger offroad-style tires magnify these problems.

I'm clueless with engines and I can't find anything in jewgle so maybe you fags can help. What is the circled part called in a diesel (CDTI 1.9 '06 Opel/Vauxhall Signum/Vectra C)?
There was a lot of white smoke, a loss of power, check engine light and leaked oil on that part and I'm trying to figure out wtf happened

Probably better to ask on a fiat forum or jtd/multijet forum because the 1.9 CDTi that opel uses is a Fiat Multijet engine.
>>
>>25925039
The tube looks like it's coming from the valve cover right by the oil cap, is that the case? If so maybe it's a PCV line going into some filter box?
Pull the dipstick and show us. White smoke could mean coolant in the oil, and maybe it overflowed to the point it pushed oil out of the PCV port and barfed it up at the end of the hose.
>>
>>25925101
Yes sorry my burger was showing
>>
>>25925102
I did some research and it looks like the part is a crankcase breather. Basically lets blowby gasses out of the engine and filters the oil out. The breather likely failed and is letting oil into the engine and also causing that leak due to the pressure. OP probably needs a new crankcase breather and it wouldn't hurt to get all the gaskets and hoses related with the car being that age.
