    I have replaced the cooling fan resistor 3 times since I have owned this car (160k miles) and it melted once again. My issue this time is that I had to cut so deep to find clean wire to splice, that it is now too short to splice without cutting into the joint where it crosses with the fan motor...

    So, two questions: 1.) Was going to go to Reno yesterday to visit a friend and some family. But as i got towards the freeway i saw that my wagon was running little bit warm (about 3/4 of the full range), thought it was kinda weird, but chalked it up to it being a hot day, and i was running the...

    I love my 2001 ZX3, especially since I paid 5K and it had only 30K miles !!! And I've driven it very 'tenderly', coasting to save the brakes, etc. So on Sat. it wouldn't start. AAA man said it wasn't just the battery. He said something about the timing not being right ... Today the local...
