    Product Review: Eonon GA2189; Android 10 OS w/10" Screen

    Figured I'd make a thread to document my experience with this unit, since I didn't do so with the last one. This is a 2021 model Android HU from Eonon, off Amazon. If you read the full description, at least at the time I bought it, you could choose 3 of 4 accessories to receive for free. The...

    SOLVED! Intermittent HVAC

    Started off on Saturday, went to use the AC during a drive and had no fan speeds on the front system. The rear worked fine. Couldn't do anything about it at the time, as I was on the way out. 5 hours later, on the way home, tried it again for kicks, system worked just fine. :confused: First...

    Wheel Cleaner Recommendations

    Now that I'm washing the truck at home, and getting a decent array of goodies to get the job done, I've got one glaring issue to resolve. The front rims get pretty filthy with grime and brake dust. Even using the pressure washer, and a couple of drill brushes, I can't get them completely...

    SOLVED! Just a Case of Crushed Bushings??

    Was driving back to the office to drop off some coworkers, when we passed through an intersection I've been through a million times before (coming from 3 of the 4 directions), but this time from the 1 direction I never come from. There was a crest in the middle of the intersection, and some...

    Opinions Wanted: Bypass OEM Transmission Cooler?

    As I wait on a new radiator to arrive, the thought of bypassing the OEM tranny cooler, and running the aux cooler with built in thermal bypass by itself, crossed my mind. Since I'm in FL, we rarely see super cold temps. The few times we get near the freezing mark, is overnight during our short...

    Engine Monitoring Feedback: Lazy O2 Sensor?

    OK, as some of you remember, I had some concerns about my engine's behavior following a transmission and water pump replacement a couple months ago. I've been looking at Torque from time to time while on the road, as well as looking at other people's threads and screen shots when I noticed...

    SOLVED! Transmission shifting issues

    Welp, here we go again. Stopped at the gas station near the house, went to shift into drive, and the lever moves freely. Transmission remains in park, as does the indicator. I can hear the click when pressing the brake. Got underneath and the linkage is still connected. Had another customer...

    Michelin, GM present new airless wheel technology for passenger vehicles

    This is the Michelin Uptis, pretty interesting concept. I wonder how much of a ride difference you'd be able to feel between a traditional tire, and this one? :undecided:

    SOLVED! Engine Bay Noises - Water Pump, bearings, lifters?

    Alright, like I said in the chat thread, I think I'm just being paranoid, but since I got the trans replaced, I'm hearing all sorts of random, inconsistent, noises that worry me. For a while now, I've suspected my water pump might be on its way out, but my temps have stayed in acceptable...

    NEED HELP OEM Side Mirror Disassembly

    I know the number of people that have tinkered with their mirrors is very few, but I'm gonna shoot my shot anyway. Does anyone know how to get the mirror assembly separated from the base? I can't seem to figure out how to get this retaining nut off the shaft. I think I remember a post from...

    Rear Diff Capacity Advice Needed

    Decided to get around to changing my rear diff fluid today. Everything seemed to go relatively smoothly, until I got to the refill portion. I thought I remembered reading on a thread here to get a pair of 1 quart bottles, and before you used up the 2nd one, some would overflow from the fill...

    NEED HELP Transmission Pan Gasket Fragment Removal Tips Needed

    Finally getting around to the fluid flush, and filter change since I've got only a few more days of vacation left. Followed the video by @MAY03LT and got the pan dropped (still spilled a bunch of fluid but whatever) :rolleyes: The pan gasket does NOT want to let go. I've gotten most of it off...

    Since we have a Tampa thread, I think it's only fair to have one for Orlando as well. :yes: In the beginning, there were 2... We headed cross-state to Orlando (and fought some pretty bad pre-Daytona 500 and theme park traffic) to meet up with Mike. Then the 3 of us caravanned to...
