Re: “Bad Karma”

Nice. The rear window spoiler along with the deck lid spoiler go together nicely.

Re: New guy here and (hopefully) a new PPV Owner in the future!

Yeah, playing the long game! After I sat in one at the Police Academy, I couldn't wait. Should have, probably, but didn't. Congrats, and welcome.

Re: Big Single TURBO build ...LOADING

I'm surprised the rear tires don't light up every time you open the trunk with all those stickers! :lol:

Re: P0157 trouble code help?

Be careful what you ask for there, David. :lol: Yeah, the new scanner has a ‘dash’ feature, as does the other one, which is what I was using to chase the P0157. Since i’m Already hearing a leak, i’ll Pull that right cat and come up with a more robust connection between the end of the cat and the hea...

Re: BRAKE light stays on with ABS.

The Elm 327 will NOT read ABS codes. I have that one, too. I was going to say fsckit and take it to the dealer, but figure this won’t be the last newer car we own, so ordered the Lemur module. It was $99 to my door, and it got to me really quick. Lemur does have an Apple version of the Blue Driver, ...

Re: P0157 trouble code help?

New O2 sensor and CAT. When I was chasing the P0157 issue, I did pull the O2 extender out of the mix, so will probably install that. I have been hearing an exhaust leak, so the piece of flashing I used may not be a permanent solution. If the rains ever stop, I'll get the car back out in the shop and...

Re: BRAKE light stays on with ABS.

I had an ABS fault on our '12. Local parts house couldn't read it with what they had. My OBD Link MX wouldn't read it. I ended up having to purchase a Blue Driver OBDII reader and downloaded their Blue Driver app to my Galaxy Tab. It's pretty comprehensive and pointed directly to the left rear sensor.

Re: P0157 trouble code help?

This car is really starting to piss me off! Took it out to run an errand yesterday. Drove it about 40 miles. I was within 1/4 mile of the house, sitting at a light, and the check engine light came on AGAIN!! Got the car home, and checked the codes: P0430. I'm about ready to park this thing at the en...

Re: P0157 trouble code help?

We get 1 not ready flag. Two and you fail inspection. Clearing the P0157 seems to reset the evap and O2 sensors, so you enjoy two sensors in a not-ready state.

Yeah, I was going to leave the ABS stuff alone, since the ABS and stabilitrack lights are off.

Re: Motive Brake Bleeder adapter info

The flat plate and cheesy Chinese chain that comes with the standard kit was pretty much useless for anything but keeping the trash can from blowing away in a wind. I could not get the thing to seal at all on our 3rd Gen F-body. I got so frustrated I threw the entire kit in the trash. I might get on...
