just break up with her already. dad and daughter will never let you forget this... neither will TB


on the other hand. grab that smooth spot between your legs and pretend you have some balls hanging there. and just replace the pump, surprise the dad at his house before he even gets a chance to leave... this will make your gf and her mother wet. Also buys you forgives with dad for getting his daughter pregnant (now or in future)

Only time I've needed to lay hands on my younger daughter's '93 Camry with 175K miles is to do entirely 'optional' regularly scheduled maintenance.

I.e. replace the likely original timing belt a few weeks ago.

Lol, it just goes, it never fails to go. It's certainly not an exciting car to drive, but then a normally aspirated '93 240 isn't either.

A normally asprirated 93 240 can, in my imagination, be plenty exciting to drive, in the mountains with a crippled fuel system.

Hell, it's exciting to drive on flat ground with questionable cooling. ;)

Exactly. And 50 miles from home with the voltmeter sinking to 10.

I get all sorts of thrills like that driving the PV. It could very conceivably fall apart at any minute.

Every time you catch a whiff of fuel, coolant, hot friction material, or oil, you think it can't be the cars ahead of you. Only Diesel is a welcome odor.

My latest guessing game is whether the squeaky belt sounds are coming from me or the car next to me.

You potato head it was pushing against the tank. I feel bad for you high elevation people, my car could barely move in the mountains. As soon as I drove it in Missouri (500 foot elevation) all 'power' was back. Then I drove the turbo car.

It was definitely exciting alright. I was behind her parents going up the mountain when it first sputtered and stalled..then I coasted backwards down the mountain (no power brakes are fun) into the next turn off. Plopped it on a curb and then replaced an already good fuel pump.

Yup, I'll always believe Toyota to be the most reliable, I just can't find/afford one I really like. They're either FWD, or expensive as ****. I will have a 22re truck at some point though.

I always wonder if it's my car or the GM next to me..pretty sure it's always the GM.

HP Loss = (elevation x 0.03 x horsepower @ sea level)/1000

its not that bad
elevation of yellowstone lake is 7,795
hp of 93 volvo = 114

(8000 x 0.03 x 110 hp @ sea level)/100 = 26.4 hp loss

So 26hp loss isn't a lot to you that's a HUGE difference. Especially in a low horsepower car.

Do these lh2.4 cars compensate for the lack of oxygen up there to some extent?
