  1. Cordless Drill - need opinion

    HD has this deal going on right now:  http://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-ONE-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Drill-Driver-and-Impact-Driver-Kit-2-Tool-P882/203406854?cm_mmc=CJ-_-1225267-_-10368321&AID=10368321&PID=4485850&SID=18d7f1728d6411e5a4e8924a09c288da0INT&cj=true
  2. Starting Issue - Please Help

    New starter fixed the problem. The teeth on the starter gear and flex plate were unharmed. I think the starter was just slowly dying. Interestingly, the car now starts faster and much more quietly with the new oem starter. Thanks all. 
  3. Starting Issue - Please Help

    Thanks guys. Will update this thread once I pop in the new starter. Driving the yellow car in the meantime so I don't damage anything. 
  4. Starting Issue - Please Help

    After doing some more research, I've convinced myself that the problem is with the starter. I ordered a new OEM starter from Tasca. No going with a bosch b/c I previously had trouble with the reman. bosch alternators. Hopefully this will fix the problem and the flex plate isn't screwed up.
  5. I'm having an intermittent problem starting my car. 1997 850R w/ 137k miles. Stage 0 is done, ignition components (plugs, cap, rotor, wires) are all relatively new and OEM. It's hard to describe what's happening, it's like the engine will turn over, but it doesn't make the normal "chug chug chug" noise. It sounds like the engine is choking. See video below. No codes have come up. Battery is an older OEM Volvo battery, but doesn't seem to have any issues. Sometimes the car starts normally, other times it chokes like in the video. It's completely random.  My guess is that the problem is related to the starter. Thoughts? http://vid104.photobucket.com/albums/m193/iamawass/Mobile%20Uploads/69C72919-66B5-403D-A76D-7237CE72E6F1.mp4

  12. Piece of metal in a cooling system

    Gasket looks normal. Blades look like they may have hit something. Flush the cooling system.   Pic of thermostat: Are you saying the brass looking part at the top broke off? If so, it may be stuck in the radiator.   
  13. Piece of metal in a cooling system

    Do you have any pics of the broken thermostat? I'm wondering whether anything actually broke off of it. It sounds to me like you bought a 20 year old car that wasn't maintained very well, and now you're having to replace the wear and tear parts, which is expected. Any pics of the water pump and/or seal? I'm not sure what you mean when you say the seal was shredded. The WP seal usually comes off in pieces since it's a paper gasket. The marks on the propellers may simply be casting marks.     
  14. What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

    I'm talking about the head of the bolt, which is not supposed to move inside of the retainer. I had to weld the head of the bolt to the top of the retainer to keep it in place. See pic:
