  2. 2 stupid hoses behind intake manifold?

    Repair Questions
    I can not remove these things... It's like they are. I'm convinced that the metal nose and the hose have "become one". I'm sure some people on here know some tricks that might help.

  9. Idler Arm Bolt Problem

    Modification Questions
    I was trying to install some new bushings as well as an idler arm brace today, but I can not for the life of me get the three bolts off. I've been hitting it with PB Blaster every other day for the past two weeks, but they won't budge. I'm afraid if I keep trying I'll strip the bolts, making it...
