comment Toyota Prius 2010 Has No Spare Tire
I can see that being true for a private sale but not for something sold by a dealership. It doesn't cost them much time/effort to simply order a kit and manuals in the proper language.

comment How can I repair cracks in leather seat?
Yeah their selection is bar-none. That's one of the main reasons I went this route. The order process painless, and the product shows up quickly. And they were very good at keeping me updating if there were any questions / concerns. (at least they were when I delt with them 8 months ago)

They work well, as long as you can get the material to look something like the before photo. It is compairable to patching a hole in a wall. The more effort and patience that is put into the work; The better the result.

comment 1999 Camaro's front wheels move forward and backward significantly, is it the control arms?
If the suspension is currently being worked on then it should be having a thorough inspection as well. Since if it is a shop that is working on the suspension then they are liable for the suspension once they ship the vehicle. (this is due to the fact that they would be the last ones to have worked on it)

Did the harness originally plug into the stock radio? Are you replacing the radio with another stock unit?

comment 2001 Monte Carlo ss. 3.8 liter cooling fans
When the ECT is cold, the sensors internal resistance is high. When the ECT's increases, the sensor resistance decreases. With high sensor resistance, the PCM detects a high voltage on the ECT signal circuit. With lower sensor resistance, the PCM detects a lower voltage on the ECT signal circuit. If the PCM detects an excessively low ECT signal voltage, which is a high temperature indication, DTC P0117 sets. With a multimeter, check the resistance of the sensor cold, and then observe it as the car warms up. Even if the sensor isn't working observe the sensor to make sure of it's functonality.
