As vehicles get older, it is not uncommon for seals and gaskets to start leaking. Replacing these is fairly common. Whether you replace it now is up to your level of frustration with how big of a mess this will create, not only on and around the engine, but ultimately on your garage floor or driveway. It is not an emergency for your engine, as there is ...

A quick eBay search appears to indicate that the washer reservoir's capacity is rather limited:

if the TOB fails, you will usually hear a loud grinding or squealing when you depress the clutch pedal. Eventual failure will destroy the clutch pressure plate, and clutch disk, and could possibly damage the throwout bearing lever, which could punch a hole in your bell-housing, or damage your flywheel.

If the noise is only happening when the clutch is engaged (pedal out), it's not the throw out bearing. You'd only hear the noise when you push on the pedal.

Seriously, $700 would not even start to fix this issue. This is probably $10-15,000 worth of work there ... easily. If the car was in perfect shape, it would only be worth $5,000 at the outside.

Apparently the coolant temp sensor was telling the engine it was -20C and so it was running extremely rich and was artificially raising the idle. After replacing that the fuel mileage got much better, but it was still running a bit high, and when I ...

I had the same issue. I just managed to soft it. There may be a few causes to this, but for my case, I found that the idling air intake hose connecting the lower part of the throttle body was missing the hose clamp. Due to this, during idling, additional air were being sucked in via the small gap between the hose and the throttle body. I think the guy who ...

There is No Such thing as coincidence. The brakes felt the same before and after the new pads because the pads were NOT the problem causing the soft pedal. This is likely ABS related issue 99% of the time. To fix it yourself all you need to do is engage the ABS once or twice. On a deserted road or safe place when traveling at 50 -60 mph Slam as hard as you ...
