How much is my wrecked Cadillac worth?

December 27th, 2010 · No Comments

I wrecked my car and need to buy a new one, but I don’t know what to do with these two cars. I have a 1997 taurus that needs a new transmission and a 1995 cadillac deville that runs and drives but the passenger side is totally smashed in. These two men want to come over and look at them today to see about buying them to crush. My husband left me and my three boys and I am clueless and scared. I don’t know what to do. Would somebody please give me some advice?

Does the 1999 Chevy Prism have a toyota engine?

December 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Problem: I am looking to buy a used car. Although I would love to buy a Honda or a Toyota, money is an issue. I heard that the Chevy Prism has a Toyota Corolla engine. Is that true? And is it as reliable as a Toyota Corolla? I’m looking for a reliable car that will last me for many years, with proper maintenance of course. Should I consider this Chevy Prism or just suck it up and get a Toyota or a Honda?

Prepare for the installation.
• If possible, install the SWI-ALP while you are installing the new head unit. Keep in mind you may need to plug in the factory stereo to locate certain wires; therefore do not complete the head unit installation until the SWI-ALP is working properly.
• Plan a general installation location for both the SWI-ALP plug and the control body. Keep in mind that the supplied wire harness is two feet long, and the 1/8″ plug harness is three feet long.

Muz Honda JDM Badges (S2000) Installation Instructions

November 24th, 2009 · No Comments

1) Use an adhesive solvent to spray the badge you are removing. Make sure you use an adhesive solvent (such as Xenit Adhesive Remover) that won’t damage the paint.
2) Once the solvent has penetrated the backing of the badge use a length of dental floss and gently work it under the edge of one of the top badge corners. Once you have the floss behind the badge you can use it like a saw in a back and forth motion to gradually ‘cut’ through the backing adhesive and separate the badge from the body of the car. You may need to repeat the procedure from various angles to achieve this.
