What makes you think the throwout bearing is causing the buzz? It's likely coming from the clutch plate, not the throwout bearing. Are you absolutely certain the clutch plate was replaced? Do you...

You might want to try bleeding the brake line to the caliper that's locking up. If there is a little air in that line it's possible that it's acting like a pressure reservoir, not allowing it to...

That screw is the same size as the screw used to fasten your rotors to the hubs. The difference is that it's not black. One of mine fell out and that's what I used.

Looks very nice. Somebody should tell them it doesn't have power seats. It's too bad there are no pictures of the driver's seat or with the top up and rear window. But the price looks good.

It could be one of your heat shields. On an OEM setup you have one under the cat and a few on the manifold. If the area around the connecting bolts gets rusted it can break, causing it to rattle. You...

I agree with Zeroptzero and others. Topping off the oil regularly maintains the additive package of the oil, which maintains the TBN and dispersants. In effect, this allows the oil to work...

1. I'm not sure exactly what's causing the increased oil consumption but I suspect carbon buildup in the rings. My bypass filter doesn't filter all the soot out, so it's possible my rings have carbon...

On cold starts, I switch on my prelube pump, wait until I have oil pressure (usually a few seconds), start the car and take off. On very cold days (10 degrees Fahrenheit or lower) I'll idle for...

Overheated clutch pads and brake pads have the same smell. Check the temps of your rims after a long drive to make sure it's not a stuck caliper. That might cause some funny sounds as well.

I used to use Zaino and an occasional clay bar to keep the surface pristine, but lately I just do an annual wax. Darker colors like NFR and Berlina tend to look pretty nice when clean. My car was...
