Since I need another post for full access... I've done CV boots, sent out my ECM and had the immobilizer deactivated, unclogged the evaporator, replaced fuel injectors, plugs, coils, belts, brakes, etc. You'll surely find much more expertise on this site but will help if I can. I also have engine and transmission mounts in the mail and will be doing those soon. Welcome!
