  1. Correct, those Torx screws are for checking valve lash with the cam cover on. The early engines had them and the late ones did not, I'm not sure when the change occurred. Yes your 03 head should be solid lifters.
  2. I wouldn't clean them with anything. I've seen worse on engines that ran just fine.
  3. It's called being a dumbass. Don't drive with your feet.
  4. Yes, if the shocks are leaking they will require replacement. Shocks should always be replaced in pairs. Extremely common for engine mounts to fail and cause a rattling noise.
  5. BCM is part of the high speed network, you cannot drive the car with the module out.
  6. The ABS unit on an 05 is not hot swapable. You'll need to install a new unit or send it out to a repair facility.
  7. Your photo is difficult to see in detail what you are trying to highlight. I've never seen that type of VVT pulley leak, but I suppose anything is possible.
  8. I made a video on the subject a few years ago, this should help. Procedure is on a 5cyl, but it's the same for a 6.
  9. Should be ok. I remember doing a rear main in one years ago that had 49k on it and was still under warranty. That's a motherfucker of a job to get paid 9 hours.
  10. I thought that was determined a long time ago.
  11. Mike has so much money he can wipe his ass with rare cars. 🤑😂 He uses antique bamboo fly rods as camp fire starter. Baller.
  12. I have seen people drive with a leaking check valve for years. You will still experience the hard start unless you fix it. I have not personally done this, but I know you can splice a check valve into the fuel line. Might be worth looking into.
  13. The car should maintain 3 bar for at least 20 minutes after engine shut off. The one way check valve in your fuel pump has failed.
  14. How long was the car not running before the gauge when to 0?
  15. Installed a GROM audio unit in the 07 XC70. FM radio was literally killing me. Also did another ozone treatment to try and remove the smoke smell.
  16. We probably need to start with the basics here. Do we have any air leaks? How is our fuel pressure? Any history on the fuel pump relay?
  17. You definitely need to listen to Far Beyond Driven if you like those.
  18. 195k. It's got a fair amount of fine scratching from kayaks over the years, but who cares it's cheap and paid for right?
