I'm 6'3"/220lbs and I've done plenty of actuator replacements without removing the dash, seats or console. Just remove the kick panel and lay awkwardly on your back for a few minutes.

TYC and Depo make assemblies, but they look basically the same as OEM. If you are looking for a different style, you will be out of luck. This a grandpa car, no euro or ricer options. Some people have done their own retrofit of projectors.

It seems like the rubber coupler that clamps onto the filler neck gets fused onto the plastic, they are difficult to separate. You'll need a long screwdriver to pry them apart along with some lube. And its hard to get any good leverage to pull it out because you're working inside the wheel well.

You might be able to get the metal piece off, but that's not how it designed to be serviced. You will only find the entire neck as a replacement. I've done the replacement, its more difficult than it needs to be, lol

I'd do $100 for a subframe complete with control arms. Yes I could do it in an hour, my shop rate is $60/hr.

There are 4 mounts, 2 on the body, 2 on the cradle. You can see he used a piece of wood under the pulley side of the motor to keep it from flopping that way.

I deal with a lot of used radiators with my inventory. It seems the fittings are always slightly different and I can never get them to interchange when I need them. I don't think there is a surefire way to know until you pull the fitting out and test it.

A subframe replacement really isn't that bad. The fact that you have to remove it to fix it would make me think it would be easier just to replace it. You can get them from any salvage yard, or myself. I'd even do the replacement in about an hour if you came to me.

Can you change it so both sides will blow hot and then change it back to cold? If it seems to change from HOT to warm or just slightly chilled, its usually just a weak freon charge. The system calls for 2lbs but performs much better with 2.5 lbs. Just try a simple cheap 12oz can of freon and see if ...

I've ordered from yourautotrim.com. I ordered the sample packet and the closest gray was called "Medium Grey". It is probably the closest you will find.

If you aren't doing the work yourself, expect a rebuilt to be ~$2500 as well.

If you have a knock already, the bearing is probably so badly damaged that the crank is as well. These engines have very tight tolerances and aren't worth rebuilding. The oil pan is part of the structure for the engine mount so the engine needs to be supported from the top to remove the oil pan.

You'll need to find an L67 donor to do it correctly. The blocks are the same, but the internals are not along with the heads. Don't mess around with trying to make an L36 work.

Have you looked on www.car-part.com?

As of late, Photobucket decided they weren't going to allow 3rd party hosting unless you pay $400/year. The photos still work on their site, you just need to go to each picture directly. A HUGE pain I know...but it is also a huge pain to reupload and relink all the pics like I just did for this post...

What front mount did you put in? The aftermarket ones are junk. You're lucky if you get 6 months out of them.

Do you have a way to take a video of you switching gears and seeing the motor flop around?
