  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    On Wednesday the 6th I'm getting ready to head to class and I remote start my car so that I can hop in and go. I gather my things and head out and get punched in the face with the smell of gasoline as soon as I get near the car. I see a large puddle... that's growing. I immediately turn off the...

    What are some good ways to make more power on the 1.8l? without sacrificing too much fuel economy
  5. Gen1 1.8L
    Cannot find this info anywhere. It would seem too easy to just swap any 6T40 over to work. Apparently from researching, a 2JFW tagged trans will not work if the car had a 2CZW trans. I know the gear ratios are different , but what about other same gear ratio IDs that are a different ID name? The...

    Hello, I have a 2013 LS 1.8 and I believe I have a leak coming from the o-ring on this part. Link To Part on Rock Auto. I'm pretty sure its coming from the end that has the 2 bolts that meets the thermostat housing, so I am looking at replacing the pipe. However, the other end in concerning to...

  14. Gen1 Powertrain
    So awhile back, my check engine light came on. I checked the codes and there was three that related to my thermostat. I talked to the auto store guys and they said its pretty common to replace them because they are originally made of plastic and tend to crack. I did some research on my own and...
