Yeah, I was in panic mode when I posted initially. After some diligence (2 turns out, 1 turn back in) I got the plugs out, the threads were BONE DRY. I swore I thought I put anti-sieze on them... It looks like a VC gasket and tube seals are in my future along with new plugs, these were white/tan wit...

Tight spark plugs

I am in the middle of changing the timing belt and I can get #2 and #4 spark plugs out but #1 and #3 are tight and there seems to be oil leakage around all of them.

Also, one of the tubes is sticking way up out of the rocker cover.

What does this mean?

Looking at Home Depot's website (because I'm trying to figure out what I need before I call someone to borrow their car), it looks like a 1/8" e-clip will fit? Does this sound like a viable solution? At least until the replacement ones get here? http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/productImages/1000/a7...

Was thinking I noticed a groove around the end of the post the bushing slides down onto... any kind of spring retainer clip that might go over that?

Booger Bushings broken, replacement bushing won't stay on...

One of the trans-side booger bushings on my '05 failed today. Found only one parts store in a 50 mile radius that had these supposed replacement bushings (Dorman 14044) I got that home to find that I had to trim one edge of the larger bushing to get it to fit down into the shift cable. Then, after 5...

Alright, figured out that the stock OE gasket is a fit... Only have the old manifold and cat out so far... rusty bolts and heat shields be damned!

OK I got the eBay header today and I've found that there's no gasket for the square flange... is this a common size? Is it the same as the OE gasket? I'm not waiting for the seller to replace it..And what's the deal, it looks like the holes in the header flange are threaded?

I'm probably being paranoid but all the extra heat/exhaust gas coming from the leaking joint shouldn't hurt anything right? Like the steering rack for example?

Are you talking about the bolts holding the manifold on or the four studs on the square flange?

Yeah... regarding those bolts I think I'm going to start with applications of PB blaster a few days before the parts get here. Hopefully a few heat and cool cycles of the exhaust with a nice coating of penetrating oil will make them ease out better... I hope.

That sounds like good news then, Ive been eyeing up a header and downpipe on ebay thats a little under a $100. That should be easier than dealing with those rusted flange studs and everything.

I'm not too opposed to the catless option I just have concerns about reduced fuel economy. I've already read about the use of non foulers etc.

Leaking Cat Converter

My exhaust is leaking badly behind the square flange but before the catalytic converter... I'm gathering from my reading on here that this area of the exhaust was at one time a flex joint. It's coming apart probably due to the fact that I've broken and repaired (read: coat hangers) several exhaust h...

A cheap clutch kit... please?

I'm up to my eyeballs in part numbers and prices and nothing seems to be anywhere near reasonable. Story: my car turned over 111k a while ago and the clutch, after a couple days of slipping, went completely out (seems like neutral in all gears). I've been pricing clutch kits everywhere and it's at l...

The wire will just go to a positive 12v source. The light comes on when the cover is slid open. The whole thing grounds itself by being screwed into the sheet metal.

Like I said, I've never had my rear brakes apart yet, but if they're like all the drums I've seen before, they should, like you said, automatically adjust. The star adjustment wheel (on rear drum cars) should have a small lever that moves it when you apply the brakes in reverse.

Going out on a limb here, but those directions should be exactly the same, aside from the location of the oval plug for the rear drum cars, too. Assuming the neon's rear drums are set up the same way as most every car I've ever seen.

I like the face of the wheels, but the 'rivets' which I'm assuming are fake, are too much. I've never liked rims with fake rivets/bolts in 'em.
