    • My kid has a 95 Pontiac Grand Am SE with the 2.4L engine.  Whenever the car shifted to a higher gear, it would go to 2,000 RPM and shift.  However, now on the shift up, the engine gets to 2000 but suddenly races up to 3,000 RPM before making the shift.  Many years ago, before the kid, I had a 79 Camaro that acted the same way but replacing the transmission transducer fixed it? Any suggestions besides yank the transmission? I don't know if it's mere coincidence --  the speedometer stopped working a few minutes before the shifting suddenly started getting squirrellly. Thank you for any help you can offer.

    • Does a pickup truck need a head-up display, 12.0-inch touchscreen, or an 8.0-inch LCD screen in the gauge cluster? Does the bed need fancy storage containers or a reconfigurable tailgate? These are the questions the Toyota Tundra poses. The Tundra’s far more basic and offers none of the features listed above. The competition sets itself...View the full article
    • From Wikipedia..... "All Pontiac V8s from 1955 to 1959 were reverse cooled, known as the "gusher" cooling system. It was removed from the design for the 1960 model year because designers moved the generator and the power steering pump from atop the front of the engine down to the front of the heads to accommodate a lower hoodline. However, the 1959 389 engines had the generator in front of the heads with reverse flow cooling still in use. This suggests that the cost of the reverse cooling was the reason for the change to "equa-flow" cooling." So essential a 1960 389 and up have "normal" cooling. All the 50's era Pontiac V8s are reverse cooling. I was not 100% certain of exactly when until I started looking but I generally knew that '50s Pontiacs were not interchangeable with '60s-and-up Pontiacs. Now I know more clearly why and when.
    • The quickest Toyota RAV4 SUV will also be the most expensive—at least initially. That's according to Toyota, which announced Friday that the 2021 RAV4 Prime plug-in hybrid crossover will cost at least $39,220 when it goes on sale around the end of June or early July. The 302-horsepower plug-in hybrid crossover that can sprint from 0-60 mph...View the full article
