SPOILER ALERT!

If you have not beaten or plan on playing the Mass Effect games do NOT watch this video.

If you HAVE beat the 3rd game you may want to watch this as it makes my feelings on the ending a lot less angry.

This sucks. Got my window switches in that were supposed to be red leds and I put them in and there is no light at all now :( Even swapped them back and forth in the Kona and the Kona originals lit up in both cars but the newly converted ones would not light up in either car. He is sending me another set so i'm hoping they will work.

So, the weird noise under my hood, turns out my intake cam is wobbling. Going to get the tensioner and idler pulley tomorrow. Replaced them for the accessories belt, ie serpentine.
I'm scared to drive my car. It only makes the noise like every other time I run my car, but the cam is clearly wobbling.... Wtf!

STOP driving it now!!

So it's that tensioner that's acting up, the timing belt tensioner right? If so stop and replace asap and you will need to re=time the motor any time the t-belt is touched. I can't believe its making noise. We replaced it what about a year ago?

is it the timing belt ? daam man I wouldn't risk it.


guys, I have this weird noise, around front suspension I guess, whenever I pull into a driveway or over speed bump it makes sound like a over-used spring bed in cheap hotel used by hookers by the SW freeway (i'm just guessing)
