How deep is your mud and snow? You might be better off with a unibody/crossover AWD SUV like a Subaru Forester or Outback. Much better mileage, better highway manners, and they handle well on snow....

The break-even point might still be a ways off, however. The ratio of pollutants (HC, CO, and NOx) coming from an uncontrolled engine vs a late model emission compliant engine is around 100:1, I...

There's also the increased reliance on vehicle diagnostics for emission compliance. As I said in a previous post, Colorado is relying on the OBD II monitors for post 1997 vehicles, rather than doing...

The RF1A case had a 15+ year life, and went through several revisions, from straight-cut noisy gears to beveled quieter ones, etc. Plus it spanned the 1st and 2nd gen 4runners, as well as pickups and...

The mount is specific to the transfer case. All RF1A cases should take the same mount. You do not want the V6 mount, because it is for the VF1A chain drive case, and will not come close to fitting...

A whining in the speakers that just started with the new alternator is quite possibly a bad diode in the alternator. There is a six-diode bridge in the alternator that converts AC (alternating...

I'd be looking hard for a mis-aligned pulley somewhere. Something caused the timing belt to drift sideways inboard and chew itself up on the inside edge. A cockeyed pulley would do that - doesn't...

A good way to find a leak is to rent a pressure tester from Autozone. Pump up the cooling system to 15 psi or a bit more, and then start looking for drips. That way you can do it while the engine is...

No, that won't work with an automatic. The torque converter is a fluid coupling and provides almost no resistance to a static turning load. The engine will just spin.

I agree. OP, nothing you have posted has suggested there is anything wrong with the diff. I would NOT take it apart based on the evidence so far. A couple of things you can do to ease your mind.

Given that the RF1A was originally designed to operate behind the 120hp 22-re, I would say probably not in it's stock configuration. It's a strong case, but 3x the power is a lot of added stress. For...

Good point about the tcase. If he gets the correct adapter for the engine, he should be able to just bolt the R150 and the VF1A chain drive case in as a unit. Might have to modify the rear tcase...

You can do what you want, but beyond what has already been accurately said by @millball and @old87yota, there are two things that you should know.

It does sound like the HG is suspect. If you really like the truck, why not just remove the rear drive shaft, put the front wheels on a dolly, and tow it to your new home? Then you can fix it after...

If it's leaking enough to cause low fluid levels, you likely would have noticed the mess on the driveway. Unless it is leaking into the transfer case. Check the tcase level as well to make sure it's...

As said, likely normal operation. If you can do it safely, just apply steady moderate pressure on the shifter while driving. Eventually the driveline bind will relax and the shifter will move easily....

Hi all,

As I mentioned on Gevo's smog thread a few days ago, I've been working on a program to read the diagnostic serial data from the OBD 1 diagnostic port. I've created a version with some...
