^ I have a feeling its been run like this for awhile, it still works good and doesn't always chatter, I dont drive long enough distances to really get it hot.. I notice the chatter the most if I drive down to Victoria or Nanaimo.

Guess il try to find redline and get the ford additive, still cant find MT-90.

anyone think that a cat could restrict exhaust sound?

my car has a full aftermarket 2.5" exhaust, with a single big cat in there and a magnaflow muff.... the car is quieter then stock!

if i rip out the cat, will I actually be able to hear the car?

It made a huge difference on my N/A, that is.. putting the cat in and ripping out the test pipe! fuck was that thing loud.

I found a Center Support bearing that can be modified to fit the Mk3, Napa part # HB206-FF. Its $41, think its for a 92-94 Blazer but im not sure, rubber and bearing are pretty much the same dimensions, just need to weld on new tabs so it bolts up Im stoked.

Burping your coolant?

I can't remember what oil I put into my LSD but I bought the additive from Toyota. I might have a bunch left over...I'll check.

Check your oil, does it look like chocolate?
Check your coolant, does it 'smell' like exhaust or have oil in it?
Does your car puff white all the time? or just a bit on startup? Does your exhaust smell sweet? (take a small wiff!)

The reason you take out your thermostat is to prevent air pockets from building up there - that's also where the temp sensor is sitting, so if you do get air pockets there your temp will go really hot/cold.

Also, air pockets are baaad mmmkay? They're bad because air=hot, and having dissimilar hot spots on the head can cause bad things, like warpage.

The more you know!

ahh already built the new bearing, havent put it in the car yet. The old bearing had alot of play but im thinking most of the drivetrain play is coming from the control arm bushings and im way to lazy to tear that apart right now, theres alot of fuckin clunking going on back there.. pinion/gears seem fine though.

ok.... so i managed to get my old hatch off and started to finally put the new one on. do the bolts to the roof have to go in first? cause i bolted up the hatch struts first and now it wont push forward enough to line up the bolts at the roof.

so im stuck with something that looks like this.

i'm willing to bet your thermostat was stuck before, replace it!

i found a fail-safe thermostat awhile ago so when it fails it will just stay open instead of sticking shut like the regular ones do, good investment. i think i found it on ebay.
