No airbag insurance problems?

When I bought my car, the airbag light was flashing. When I had it inspected, my mechanic said he basically didn't know if it would actually deploy or not, it was going to cost an arm and a leg to replace them, and I've heard that the effectiveness of mid 90's airbag technology is questionable to be...

It's either got to be valve seals or turbo. I went ahead and began pulling the turbo as their is a good chance I'm going with a different one anyways. So far, so good, I've checked for oil residue in the exhaust ports and in the manifold before the turbo, I figure if oil is leaking and burning off t...

Definitely does not smell like burning coolant, so assume it has to be oil. I've kind of been leaning towards bad turbo/seals though, i find more similarities in other people's experiences with blown turbos, and almost every account I've read about valve guides involves smoking on cold start ups and...

I'm probably going to attempt to do this myself. It doesn't really look to bad with an air compressor to keep the valves up, and the tool to compress the spring. But, there are 16 of these, right? Surely not all 16 could have gone bad at the same time, would 1 or 2 of these going bad really cause th...

I've had this problem with every single pilot bushing I've ever installed. I had to sand down the inside of the bearing a tiny bit.

I have dual altima fans with A/C. I'd be more concerned about fitment with A/C rather than how well A/C works, it takes a little more trimming.

I believed I've figured out the issues and posting in hopes this can help someone else. 1st, the slave cylinder went bad, dissection showed that the bore of the valve/piston was basically bad , allowing air and fluid past the seals very slowly. I assume this was the shifting issue. 2nd, When I took ...

what color of RTV did you use? Did you use the grey stuff?
High temp red, grey might work better though, red is what I had lying around at the time. I have pressure tested up to 20-25 psi, but car normally only sees 7-10 psi

What should I be looking for in a failing TOB? Like I said, it's out now, spins freely and doesnt appear to be scorched at all or anything, so I'm not sure how it could be broken, not that I'm disagreeing, just asking what to look for.
