  1. Well talked to my father inlaw who was a class A until his sciatic nerve went, he is going to swing by tomorrow and have a look at it. I also talked to a friend of mine and he seems to think those 4.6's are bullet proof and his guess is that the manifold gasket and the smoke could be the O2 sensor being damaged from bottoming out leaving parking lot or a failed injector.
  2. Everything is always 100,000km warrenty up here in Canada and I'm sitting at 107k, bought it at 94k. Well I been working on getting a new Cat from the states as its about half the price. But today while leaving a parking lot I bottomed out abit, cringed but seemed like everything was good. I continued driving and then notice a strange clugging sound at the same time a the tick and then noticed smoke behind the car stopped. When I drove off i left a little cloud of smoke and the engine light continued to flash all the way home (about 5km). Everywhere i stopped i left a small cloud of smoke. 10 seconds after i turned off the car in the driveway I heard a pump or something from the rear part of the car. The smoke smelt like burnt oil.
  3. I sell and install michelin's, BFG's. Before you go out and change your sizing, you need to have someone who is a trained tire tech. Look at the car and use a size comparator to ensure your not increasing the tire by 15%, doing so could cause your brake system to malfunction. Sometimes you need to have the car reprogrammed for the new size tire (rare) and if you have indirect TPMS that works on revolutions of the tire. Also your recommended pressure will likely have to be changed to give you the best footprint on the road.
  4. Hey again, thanks for all the help. I am still unsure of which of the two cat's I should get in the above links.
  5. Anyone try any of the "crazy cans" from Alsacorp.com, was thinking of trying out their black chrome paint for the same idea.
  6. I found out i can get a Cat for 670$ at cost locally. I also found a site for way less but am not sure of what i should get http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/sku/Cadi.../EAST50316.html or http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/sku/Cadi...ECA4922214.html
  7. I cleared the codes and now these are the codes. The car feels like it slightly chugs off the go like the timing is off, and shakes a fair bit while idling. Also about once a trip the engine light will come on and flash for abit and then go out. P0036 - Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Heater Control Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 2 P0300 - Engine Misfire Detected Thanks
  8. Thanks, will try to isolate the noise Sunday, I looked up codes Body Code: B1327 - Vehicle system voltage below 9.0 volts (history) Chassis code: C1288 - Steering Sensor Circuit Malfunction (history) Powertrain code: P0036 - Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Heater Control Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 2 (history) Powertrain code: P0141 - Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Heater Performance Bank 1 Sensor 2 (current) Powertrain code: P0420 - Catalyst System Low Efficiency (current) Powertrain code: P1189 - Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Switch Circuit (current) Network Code: U1000 - Class 2 Communication Malfunction (history) I also run 5w30 castrol full syntec, and takes 1ltr oil every 1500km or so.
  9. I think Sam's Club Closed but You can try Costco. They sell their Kirkland brand, good quality, inexpensive and most have a 7 year warrenty and first 3 years full replacement or full cash refund based on current price(which is always higher), they are also have 100% satisfaction or full refund on everything but computers (6 month 100%) which is still pretty amazing. Also if you don't feel comfortable with the Kirkland brand you can also buy an Optima Spiral Cell Battery for way less then anywhere else.
  10. Hello, I recently bought a 2001 DTS, it had 97,000km on it and now has 105,000km. It started to make what I thought was either lifter noise or a small hole in the manifold. You can really hear the noise when standing outside of it, sounds like it coming from below the car. And you can notice it stopped beside another car or wall and it reflects off of it. And now just recently the car kinda chugs slightly while idling. I have some error codes i got from the DIC. ABS C1288 History PCM P0036 History PCM P0141 Current PCM P0420 Current PCM P1189 Current RCC U1000 History TTM B1327 History Thanks
