    Question re: online vehicle application guides

    Wondering if others have experience this when shopping car parts online. It can be RockAuto, AutoZone,Ebay, etc.. you hunt down the part that you are sure is for your vehicle and you get the "this part does not fit your vehicle". I think I'm batting 50% of the time on this. Today I needed a...

    Front caliper pistons aren't extending

    A collapsing brake hose can restrict in both directions so you won't be able to compress the piston. I recently when through this on my Chevy G30 van, after replacing both calipers, it was a $8 hose. I'm thinking you have the same problem.

    Little blazers 2019 Colorado z71 build

    You might not remember when GM started putting the LS engines in their trucks and hoards of complaints piled in about "piston slap" and "excessive oil consumption", many buyers walked away, never to buy a GM again.... Now the LS engine is the crate engine of choice. The point is that all makes...

    True, my Jeep GC isn't small but, is very similar in size to my former Envoy Denali and comes with V6,V8 or Diesel engines.
