    Just walked out to my car last night and noticed a puddle of coolant under it. I lifted the hood and noticed the reservoir was about empty and the little plastic T up by the oil fill cap was leaking. I didn't have time to deal with it so I am still driving it as of now. I have not gotten a low...

    Many of you are aware that sometimes the diaphragm in our intake manifold decides to just up and leave willy-nilly whenever it feels like. So, today, I'm going to try to remedy this issue without buying a new intake manifold. I took my car to the dealer and they said, "there's no check engine...

    Hi forum! I just installed 4 new speakers + an amplifier, but I´m still using the original radio. I don´t want to change it, because I want to preserve the original aspect of the dashboard. Everything sounds ok, but the radio equalizer is very limited in my opinion. I was thinking about adding...

    I've seen a few threads about using a thumb drive as the aux input. How about using a decent sized USB Hard Drive? has anyone tried it, if so what are the results, I've got an android phone and I can use the headphone jack, and that's fine but it'd be nice to be able to control the music from...

    I am in the process of ordering an EZ-Pass tag for my Cruze Eco. I have an option for an internal or external tag. My question is if I opt for the external tag, will it increase the drag coefficient? Hence lowering MPG?

    I have a Western Digital 1.5 TB External HD which I'd like to use in my Cruze Eco as the music source via USB. The HD requires a 100-240 VAC power source so I'm looking to buy a power inverter (cig lighter to standard US electrical outlet). Two questions: 1) Have any of you used an External...
