'99 1500 Sport, 4x4

Saw this on youtube, maybe this is your issue? Also, those tamper proof allen screws don't mean squat in my opinion. Just another way to make us buy a new tool. I have an entire set of the...

Hey everyone,
I have some slop in my steering, enough to make me uncomfortable on the interstate. It has oversized tires but just barely, and no lift kit. I checked and the ball joints and tie rods...

Some folks here have had some improvement in power and mileage with an aftermarket coil but I would install some new, inexpensive, stock plugs first and see if that helps. If it does, then go for...

I've had a leak in my a/c for a while now, bad enough that I won't put in any more cans of refridge. I took it to Car-X and they couldn't find it (although they did replace one of the...

Could it be something blocking the inline filter? You shut it off and it falls off the filter until it's sucked back on to it again?

Update: It's done! Well, sort of. I found a little more rust on the inside bottom of the driver's side door. It's just surface so that's cool.
