Thanks, hydrex. I called the shop this morning - they'll replace the compressor and R/D for $750 plus the state's bite. That's about as reasonable as I'm gonna get, so I'm taking it in Friday. I'm...

I've been using AutoZone and Advance Auto, both of which seem to be about the same in terms of price and durability. I don't think I have a compression leak because the engine runs just fine, no...

Leaking radiator

I'm about to change my radiator for the 4th time, and I'm pretty tired of doing it. Seems these dang radiators with plastic end caps are good for 3-4 years max, and then they start leaking.

Question Can't locate winshield washer pump fuse

My windshield washer quit squirting, and I'm sure it's a fuse. But the owner's manual doesn't mention where it is located. Anyone tell me which fuse block and which fuse to check?

Thanks!

+1 on RRJ's post. You definitely still have a leak someplace. Might want to check the front brake hoses also, as I have heard that they can give problems after a few years.

I would start at the MC...

Mine is OBDII. I've changed the upstream once for sure, maybe twice IIRC, but never have swapped out the downstream. I probably need to change both in any event.

I just put in new plugs, rotor button, air filter and distributor cap. Do need to rotate the tires, though, so I'll do that.

Question When/how often to change O2 sensor?

Hood interior liner fell off - replace or ignore?

My interior hood liner finally just came a-tumbling down today when I raised the hood. There was no saving it - 17 years of use had done it in.

Any thoughts on whether to replace it? If so, where...

It's not the belt - I've changed that several times. Probably is the pump, and I might as well go ahead and replace it. It's the original (1998) and is probably past its sell-by date anyway.
