Yea, those Chrisfix vids show that Seafoam is actually better at removing combustion chamber carbon than other fuel system treatments. I always have success using the vacuum line method with Seafoam; it reduces knock/detonation in the hot summer mon

I use a little under 50 quarts per year, so around 4.5 years to use a drum. It would take around 3 years to use up my current stash, but I plan to sell some locally to deplete a few quarts.

Sorry, I guess I wasn't aware there were single-port SAS HDDs. Everyone buys SAS HDDs because of the dual ports. You can find HPs on EBay, probably $1 a GB new, $0.20 used.

Unless there is horrible pitting & gouging. Some rubbing compound and Meguiars PlastiX is all you really need with a machine buffer. I used this kit on 5 sets of headlights so far and they are perfectly back to OEM new afterwards. The older mod

I was basing my statement on what you said in your first post, that it had the 5-speed Aisin AF33. That was used in these cars along side others. That is a T-IV fluid designed unit. So what transmission is actually there (powertrain combination)?

Does RockAuto require the cores be in the original packaging? Ford and Mazda require it and I swear no matter how clear I explain it customer do not understand that concept. I even print it on the receipt for the parts.

I would start by cleaning BOTH ENDS of BOTH BATTERY CABLES! You describe a situation where there is a bad (Corroded) contact, at one of those 4 locations, which effectively removes the battery from being connected. If it is not that, get the batter

It wouldn't be to do anything but remove the little bit of carbon that has gathered over the years. Even though I only use top tier gasoline, it gets about 99% stop and go city driving and short hops, so I thought it may be beneficial to clean it out
