Sorry for the barrage of questions I'm likely to be sending but I'm not having much luck relating portions of the schematics to my car. 1) There is a splice in the turn signal wiring that send the si

OK, newbie question but better safe than sorry! I see the jack holes in the sides and the factory jack in the trunk, but that just doesn't seem like the best choice for a 34 year old car. In an emerg

Exactly what I ended up doing. It's up on four stands now and it's pretty obvious that my lack of brakes is due to trouble at the left rear where the inside of the wheel is covered with fluid. I also

I keep finding a small amount of brake fluid on top of my master cylinder. I believe the master cylinder caps are vented, and I'm betting I've got air in the lines as I just found one of the wheel cy

I was actually thinking (or maybe _hoping_ so I wouldn't need to replace it) that possibly when braking pressure was forcing it out. But I don't know if that's possible - therefore the question to yo
