Random how to requests I could think of:

Fuel filter change
Heated seat fixes/replacement
Interior/headliner disassembly
Power steering flush
Brake flush/stainless upgrade

you should add heated seat repair. since it started getting cold, i've noticed a lot of people posting about it.

awesome awesome thread man. i'm really busy lately, but once things die down, i'll help you out. maybe some of us can put something together and finally update that faq properly.

I have one that you could consider adding to #18 belt chirp. On my '96 (4.0), I had a chirping belt when cold for a few days so I ordered a new belt and two new idler pulleys from Rock Auto. On replacement day after changing the belt and both pulleys, it still had a chirp when revving the engine. While watching the belt while revving the engine, that's when I noticed the pulley portion of the harmonic balancer moving in and out. Inspection of it showed that it was beginning to come apart - the isolating rubber was bulging out and I could pick it off. Fortunately the local parts store had a new Dorman balancer for $45 and with a short harmonic balance puller, it could be pulled without removing the radiator. I figure the balancer was so cheap compared to some others because it has no reluctor wheel on it since our crankshaft position sensor is located in the bellhousing.

Just added the heated seat repair and headliner removal. The fuel filter is pretty self explanatory. If it's outside the tank it's just two clips. If it's inside the tank you just have to unscrew the two gas tank straps and remove the two filler hoses and drop the tank.

Power steering and brake fluid flushes can only be done with with suction devices/bleeding the brakes so it's not really something that needs explained.

That's usually how it goes. :laugh:

I've experienced just about all of these problems that's why I know so much about them. Lol.
