    exhaust gasket keep blowing out on Gen 2.5

    It's odd because both shops are VERY legit. One even cleaned the surfaces before installing the 3rd one. Exhaust shop guy says its blowing out due to heat....I run a bluetooth OBDII app and nothing is amiss and the temps are spot on. Last one didn't last 400 miles. If the current one fails I...

    exhaust gasket keep blowing out on Gen 2.5

    The exhaust shop guy seemed annoyed with it. He said nothing seemed wrong. Basically told me this is the last time he will replace the gasket. I am going to get it on a friends lift soon and poke around myself.

    exhaust gasket keep blowing out on Gen 2.5

    Shortly after I replaced the passenger side exhaust manifold with an OEM manifold I got another leak. Shop said it was the lower gasket on the manifold where it connects to the rest of the exhaust system. They replaced it with a new gasket and all was good. A few hundred miles and it came back...

    Gen 2.5 steering wheel options

    So I have the dreaded horn sticking in cold weather in my 98....I can either repair it but the wheel itself has seen better days after 217k miles. Anyone know if a Gen 3 airbag wheel is a direct swap, airbag and all? I could also go the aftermarket route but don't know how to wire out the airbag...

    AC compressor and blower motor not working after heater core replacement

    Yep. I went through the FSM already. Was hoping someone would have some insight. Unless its a fuse or relay, I had to miss something. Everything worked perfect until replacing the AC control unit and switch. I even installed the original one which was working and nothing changed.

    AC compressor and blower motor not working after heater core replacement

    Just finished up the heater core on my 98 and even put in a new oem AC control unit along with a blower motor. When turning on fan nothing happens. I have triple checked all connections and don't think I missed anything. Also the AC compressor doesn't kick in when turned on. Any suggestions...

    Anyone know what these plug into? I don't recall and I didn't find it in any of my pictures during the teardown.

    Passenger airbag removal prior to heater core replacement?

    Figured as much but thought I should ask. Glad I tested it. Had a weep at the top hose. Readjusted it and now its reassembly time.

    Passenger airbag removal prior to heater core replacement?

    Anyone know if it’s ok to start it up and let it run without the passenger airbag? Would love to test the hoses for leaks before putting the dash back in.

    Black Betty aka Mean Joe Green 98 Gen 2.5

    I ended up getting a complete new core and it's costing me $150. I could have had it repaired where it was leaking for way less but figured I might as well go all out.

    Passenger airbag removal prior to heater core replacement?

    Yeah it was a little bit of a pain to get that out. I need to buy some new hoses anyways cut those old dry ones off to make it easier. Did you re-use factory hose clamps?
