    Help with Runaway Diesel Engine and Leaky Turbo

    Take your car to jimbote in Sanford and have him check it out. If it needs a turbo, buy a new turbo for about $900 and have jimbote install it. Used turbos are a gamble unless you know the seller or know how to check the condition yourself.

    Battery - "must buy now" question/help

    My original battery died after seven years so I replaced it with OEM from the dealer. I just replaced that battery, it wouldn't hold a charge, actually it would not even take a charge and was only three years old. Now I'm running a Walmart battery. So in my experience, OEM gets a thumbs down.

    biodiesel in the winter

    Put your biodiesel in a clear jar and put it in the freezer and see if it gels. I used to keep a jar of my biodiesel outside to see if it was gelling on colder nights.

    Passenger door wont unlock with remote

    The doors do unlock with the switch on the drivers door, they just won't unlock with the remote, so I think that the acctuators are fine.

    GTG Winnsboro SC Saturday July 14

    Would anyone have an oil extractor that I could use at this GTG? Mine got lost when we moved to NC and my oil drain plug has been sealed to keep it from leaking (threads are almost gone). I also would like it if some of the experts there could help me figure out my turbo lag problem.

    LSD, A funny thing happened on my way to 60 MPH

    My car also dances a little under hard acceleration since the Peloquin install. I think that it is caused by the differences in the road surface which causes the differential to switch power from side to side as it searches for traction. At first it was unnerving:eek: but now I expect it to...
