I have not received my EW letter, yet. 😡I received my letter yesterday. This is kind of good actually. I'll end up with free valve checks/adjustments for the next 10 years. That is going to chop off at least 1.4hrs of my labor at the 60K timing belt replacement.
Scan Gauge FTW (as it also provides the all important transmission temperature)It's only related to the starting condition. You simply state you are having start/stop issues and valve check or adjustment will be required if they relays and starter check out ok.
~~I like the way you think. Sounds like you're going to get to that 60k maint issue before we will. Please share your results.
Mine does. I keep my cheap Fluke meter with me and check voltage periodically. Another option is to get an adapter for the cig socket that shoes voltage. Meter is just as simple though....
I've heard of that in the past. I intend to get one but would only use it when I was in personal inquiry mode/diagnosing, towing or off-highway exploring.FYI, this was posted in the TSB thread.
Can someone verify this please.
As I have done, let him be. Others may take interest. More info is better than not enough info to sort through on one's own.That is more BS from @ballisticexchris, a simple search for the term "Scan Gauge" on this forum or the Piloteers forum will reveal that many members are using the tool without any issue. It's simply taking readings off the ECU not putting the vehicle in a diagnostic mode or overriding safety features.
Ah, bollocks. You worry too much.Good for you for doing so much car-work at that age. I'd be happy to be alive at 50. Currently at mid-30s but lots of bad decisions bound to catch up to me sooner than later.
