Stink bugs!

Our country has imported Chinese stink bugs and it's that time of year when they look for winter shelter. They stink a bit but not like skunk. It's smell is kind of like rancid oil with pine. I was working on my 88 when I kept smelling the bug's smell. I look down into the alternator and this little...

Re: The '90s called...

Oh man, sorry you wrecked your truck.
The truck looked solid, not much rust that I can see.
But you weren't hurt so that is the most important thing.
Also, no ticket from the cops for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident?

Re: From backyard to Berettafest

The car looks very nice. Do you really need straight pipes and no cat to go a little bit faster? IMHO, too many people take off pollution controls and run straight pipes, fart can mufflers etc. They drive around polluting and make all kinds of noise for miles around like they are living in a vacuum....

Re: LG5 Corsica hatch, coolant switch conundrum??

I do not know the answer for your car as to what if anything is wrong. But my with 94 mini van, as I recall, I don't think the fan would work because the AC did not have a charge. Also when I did get it to work after fixing the AC, I was not comfortable with the high temperature before it came on, i...

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

My 96 z26 needs the main parking brake cable changed out. The 88 needs a new PS cooling line installed. I have the parts but I've been fighting a muti-year battle with gremlins in my mini van which came to a head last week. Symptoms include SES lights, rough running sometimes, dying after starting, ...

Re: "Routine maintenance" turns in to no-start!

That was good thinking to go over what you had done to find the problem. My daughters Saturn blew a fuse related to the oxygen sensor. It caused problems and warning lights but still ran. I disconnected the oxygen sensor and the new fuse did not blow. I figured the senor heater had shorted out so we...

Re: AC R12 or R134?

There should be a factory sticker which states what type of refrigerant you have in the car. But yes look for the type of fitting you have if the sticker is missing. You can retrofit an r12 system with r134 but when I did mine, I was instructed to add pag oil as well, because r134 will not mix with ...

Re: Anyone know anything about stock keyless entry on beretta?

I'm not 100% sure about the Beretta keyless option but my 1994 Lumina mini van has
the factory keyless option so I don't see why it would not be available on a Beretta.

Re: What is my husband's Beretta worth?

Ditto on pics and more description. Underside rust is critical. If it's really clean, could be worth 3-4000 dollars, maybe more.
180 KMS? maybe you mean 180,000 which might be 111,000 miles?
It sounds like you are not in the US.

Re: Barrett-Jackson Beretta Twin Turbo All Wheel Drive.

Congratulations on the purchase. It's a very interesting car. You must be very proud to have this one of a kind! I wonder how fast it is. Did you run it at Great Lakes dragaway? It's inter-cooled via a water system for that as opposed to direct air. I wonder how effective that is vs direct air. A lo...

Re: What sensor is this?

I would guess:
a low pressure switch would be open (no conduction) at atmospheric pressure.
A high pressure would be closed at atmosphere (conducts) and opens at a too high pressure
So if they will let you put an ohmmeter on the new ones, you might be able to compare to your old one.
