hesitation on acceleration

Both my 635's (87 and 88) do this for some reason and I've never dug into it other than checking for vacuum leaks, but I thought I'd pose the question here for some thoughts. The best way to describe it is the same symptom a carbed car would exhibit if it had a bad accelerator pump. From deceleratin...

Re: behr wing cell compressor rebuild

Guys,
If changing the condenser to PF, and freon to 152a, would the wing cell (rebuilt of course) be an improvement over a sanden compressor? And what would it cost to rebuild the behr?

Re: Gasoline in Trunk

Is it possible that a non trivial amount of gasoline could have crept up through the evap lines into the trunk? Yes! And with the bubba evap modifications it's probable. Like Dean says, it would be easier to put it back original. Parts like the evap tank under the rear glass would be easy to find u...

Re: My e24 ordeal is now seemingly at an end :(

Don't look back my friend. These cars are cheap to purchase compared to many other sports cars. Do keep that motor and the parts you mentioned, but since you now have more funds to work with do yourself a big favor and buy the best one you can afford! You want no rust ever, not one that had rust and...

Re: Fuel tank pumps/lines/Ethanol

So, you mounted this in tank and just took out the old inline pump? yes, much easier to troubleshoot also! Mount this pump to the existing pump hanger (swap in/out lines), remove external main pump, leave main filter and re-plumb hoses as needed. It's not as hard as it sounds. Do a search first, gu...

Dean, I don't mean to hijack, and it's still relevant to the original question anyway. But my ciggy lighter socket is flopping about in the console, and the whole thing will push through the hole. I don't see at a glance, a way for it to fasten into the hole. Any ideas? Btw, I wish mine was a euro. ...

Re: Cigarette Lighter

Dean, don't you have to start pulling screws at the rear AC console to get that out? Please say no... I've always had to start in the back and pull everything loose to the front just to get the gearshift console out. I'd love to know there's a better way.
