Glad I could help...now I'm off to cry about the fact that we still owe our dad $4000 (USD!) for the GP that we spent so much on and that no longer runs!

Thats very spendy even for used compressors. Mine is dead to, but I don't worry. The vents do a good enough job and air con is really only needed for 8 weeks a year...

The rest its either snow, rain or pleasant enough to not need it.

I'm heading down there shorty as sonn as my 2K Accord lift home gets here LOL

How many hours is the cam/timing repair goin to take for the dealer? At least I can start to budget for that job.

If you would do the work yourself it would be a lot cheaper!!! j/k I always do the work myself so I'm not paying people for the hours that they just sit on thier *** and do nothing but then again you had to take it to a shop so they could find that rubbing sound and some of the other stuff eh....had to use that...but you could put in the t-stat, brake shoes and pads, etc. yourself. what a hoser just kidding jim hope you can afford the cam magnet repair so you can tell me how much it'* gonna cost even though i don't know if thats what code mine is throwing. I should take it to autozone sometime and see huh?? in the meantime i have to pay a $109 ticket for um.....fishing without a liscence(liscence is $18.50!!! damn i feel stupid now! oh well good luck

Oh i'd do it myself if I had the time, the hardware and the resources. I'm at the office 48 hrs a week and my evening and weekends are solid. I don't like half assed efforts tho. I was less then impressed that they would break a vac line when changing a t-stat, however the t-stat on VIN c engines are towards the bottom left of the Vac Connection Manifold....hence, I have to replace that part.

That should solve my chunkin trans due to no vaccum in the trans valve/regulator

And don't forget to mention that your evenings and weekends are spent on here, post whoreing, LMAO.

I usually used to do as much work as possible, ( had a FORD so it needed alot of work) but these days time is in short demand.
