Good topic. How about just maintence. I think the workings of it would take a book! Maybe vwhobo could write his own ebook and sell it for a buck a pop. You know he has his own web site !

Ah, that's a negative on the website there fellas. Hell, I can just barely navigate this one much less do my own.

I fully agree that the transmission would make a good topic. The thing is as lectroid says, there is alot to it. I'm trying to figure out how to hit the high points and even that will probably take two weeks worth of typing.

Maybe if I get a cute blonde to sit on my lap and take dictation...

Hey,I was only kidding bout the web site, that was brought up before,"I think." " Maybe if I get a cute blonde to sit on my lap and take dictation..."= Topic could only be automatic or maybe manual for the little dreamers that still have their hands for a #@#@##@ lol: hehe, I also despise typing, if you can call it that[ 60 words an hour]

I could've used a; "How to change a fuel filter on a 1995 Honda Accord LX" yesterday...

What a pain in the @ss that is. Needless to say, we couldn't do it with my ultimate set of tools. It is positioned near the firewall, under the master cylinder and seemingly unreachable from underneath as well.

Oh well...to the shop it went today.

perhaps something on how cold effects the engine of a car.

Might be pretty nice to have here in Wisconsin.

I've always wondered exactly how a "horizontally opposed" engine worked as opposed to a regular v or a flat. I've heard about them a lot but I've never really been able to get a definitive answer cause hardly anyone in America has them. That'd be swell.

I don't think I can work that answer into 1000+ words. Let's just say it's not too hard to find a horizontally opposed engine. Subaru sold 186,000 cars in the US last year, look under the hood of one of them.
