    As I think of it, I assumed that you had Xenon lights and did not consider you may have halogen lights. I have xenon. If you have halogens, you won't have the ballast. To get to the bulbs on my car...

    I would not assume it's just a bulb. That's the easiest thing to change, but I've had bulbs blow without any message. The only time I got that message was when I replaced a headlight assembly due to...

    That's definitely worth a try. I've only owned it for 4 years and replaced the rear calipers when I got it. I haven't touched the fronts.

    Well the worst reason would be a blown head gasket. I had that happen to me. You may also check the by-pass valve on the front wall of the engine compartment for the coolant leak.

    I broke a similar hose on my turbo. It went to the oil trap. The red retainer is a bear to get out. It is compressed with an o-rind and the bottom of it bites into the plastic tube. I found a...

    Finally got this figured out. Removing the hose under the intake manifold was not easy. Used a trick I found on line in a video using a zip tie and some tape. I actually wrapped electrical tape on...

    Thanks for the input. I think Geoff's idea to remove the hose at the MAS is a good one to prevent the remaining small piece from falling into the intake tube by pushing from the bottom. I will need...

    Geoff I understand your point, but that's probably not going to happen. Too expensive to do that. I guess I'll start with recharging the battery and seeing it there is a current draw on it. After...
