Default Screw in Tire, Other stuff.

Thats a screw/nail in my rear pass. tire. Pretty close to the sidewall. I haven't lost any pressure with it in there. Should I get it looked at?

Also my Idle Air Controller is missing a screw. Can someone give me the length/size so I can get a replacement?

1 More thing. At the meet we found out my throttle body hose has a long tear in it. I will head out tomorrow to the JY and get a replacement. What I need to know is. is the non supercharged throttle body hose the same length incase I don't find one from a supercharged one? n00bish I know.

Thanks again guys.

for the screw in the tire, get a plug kit and repair it yourself, its super easy and shouldnt cost more than $5 at the local parts store

Better to have it plugged at a tire shop, and PATCHED on the inside for insurance. You'll be fine after that.

IAC screw is either an M3 or M4. I forget. I'll have to get back to you on the thread and length. Make sure in the meantime that the screw isn't broken off in the TB.

The 92-94 L27 and 92-95 L67 intake accordians are the same IIRC. But the 94/95 L67'* will have resonators built in to decrease sound and performance.

Information that I received at a couple of different tire shops was that if the hole was outside of the steel belt (which it looks as if that may be), the tire was considered to be non-repairable, and would need to be replaced. They said that the stresses on that part of the tire are considered too great for a reliable fix.

If he had a tire warranty, he wouldn't be asking about how to fix it.

That screw in the tire looks very familiar. I have a crazy man in my nieghborhood that likes to place them under my tires in the middle of the night. 23 in the last 7 years but none since I installed the driveway patrol system and motion light.
The bottom of the tire is covered by the steel belt system and can be repaired. Anything in the sidewall cannot be repaired and the tire is junked. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, my first job I worked in a Mobil station and repaired tires.
