    Another thought: Are you sure there isn't some residual coolant in the intercooler or exhaust from a leak that had been fixed?

    The first and easiest thing you can do is make sure the switches for the interior lights are all switched to the "door" position. I have a 9-5, not a 900, so I don't know where they will be on your...

    I have no experience with convertibles, and the question about the windows and mirrors is pretty broad. Take off the door panels and look for anything obviously amiss - burnt insulation on wires,...

    I don't know if it's comparable, but I had a couple Merkur XR4Tis with 2.3 liter turbo 4-cylinders. That engine was also used, with minor changes, in the Mustang SVO and Thunderbird Turbo Coupe. It...

    I'd use some silicone spray, or maybe a very light coating of white lithium grease.

    The alarm in my '99 does that and I can't be bothered to fix it. If things haven't changed between '99 and '06, you can pull the fuse for the air conditioner and it will also disable the alarm.

    I blame the Chevrolet Nova - a horrible name for a car in a Spanish-speaking country.

    Well, they'd probably still pick different names for different reasons, but the Nova didn't help.

    You guys are so pessimistic about Indian ownership! They seem to be doing alright with Jaguar. And Mahindra is making inroads into the US tractor market. Just trying to bring a little balance to...

    The Nissan Xterra is an SUV that's kind of like a cheaper Pathfinder. I think it was introduced to the US market in the late 90s, maybe the early 2000s....

    You can get really cheap spark plug gapping tools at the counter of most auto parts stores. You can do better, but they'll do to start. It takes some trial and error to get the gap right, but you...

    Right. I fitted 15" wheels to my '99 9-5 for winter. It's the base 2.3t model. I researched wheels and tires through tirerack.com. The website said they'd fit, and they did, with no problem. I'd...

    They are battery operated and batteries wear out, even if they're never used. You probably don't know how long those sensors sat on a warehouse shelf before you got them.

    What's "best?" I just replaced my stock 16" wheels with 15" steel wheels with snow tires. That'll get me through the winter better, but it's probably not what you have in mind for "best."
