  2. Radiator Hose Leak

    Heating & Cooling
    So.....hey guys. I feel kinda like a dummy for needing to ask about this but I can't seem to keep coolant off the ground. I had a leak so I decided to change the lower hose and upper hose, plus they were old and needed replacement. I changed them and used some of those worm gear clamps, but I'm...
  3. Blueprint Engine Potential Issue

    Engine
    Hey all, I bought a Blueprint 383 crate motor with roller rockers back in Feb. 2015 and have put about 4k on it so far. It's a great motor, makes lots of power and has a great sound. I have two small issues with it so far: 1. The oil pressure runs high, 85 psi, and if I give it a little gas...

  9. 89 RS Under The Hood Issues

    Troubleshooting
    Alrighty, so I just bought an 89 Camaro RS private sale. I have never owned a Camaro and have never worked on a car. It's never really been my thing. Now that I own this vehicle, though, I really want to fix it up and make it nice looking, great running, and a dream to drive. But I SERIOUSLY...
