    When you say the engines aren’t worth rebuilding or replacing the seal, is that due to cost?

    I turned the gas off 2 weeks ago and let it idle till it died, went back to our cabin this past weekend and it was still leaking gas, that’s why I put the bolt in, to stop the leak.

    Looks and feels like engine oil, same texture too. Didn’t taste it.

    With the little bit that I do know, I didn’t think there should be any fluids in those.

    Is that the Chinese version of the FLUX capacitor, Doc Brown says can get me one for $88.

    Few questions about a fluid leak. I know NOTHING about working on vehicles so forgive me if I use the wrong terminology. I have a pretty substantial fluid leak on my 2000 Yamaha Big Bear quad. I can’t find where it’s coming from. It’s most noticeable after driving it because the quad smokes from the fluid hitting the hot exhaust. In the red circles are bushings that I think the fluid is coming from, hitting the exhaust directly behind them. And dripping down onto the skid plate below. If that’s the case, what type of fluid would that be? If that’s even where it’s coming from. Also....the yellow circled items....gas constantly drips from that line. So much so that I keep it plugged with a bolt. If left unplugged it will just constantly drop. What is it and how do I stop it.

    MEOPTA vs SWARO???

    I owned, at the same time, a pair of Swarovski 10x42 HD and the meostar 12x50 HD, so not an exact comparison, but I sold the Swarovski‘s and kept the Meopta. The main reason I did so was because the color through the Meoptas was much better than the Swarovskis. For my eye Swarovski sort of washed out and everything had a lighter tone to it. Not to mention if you go with the Cabela’s brand Meoptas called the instinct, they have a no questions asked return policy. I haven’t had to use it but I’ve heard from people that have that you walk in with your broken pair and walk out with a brand new pair, even if it is a model or two newer than the ones you had. That being said I had to send back that pair of Swarovski‘s the first time I used them in the field, the focus knob came completely detached and I couldn’t focus the binoculars. I did own a pair of non-HD 10 x 42 Swarovski‘s for 15 years before that and never had them malfunction though.

    The engine does run better after it’s heated all the way up, idles about 100 rpm faster and the stutter is less frequent. I haven’t looked at fuel trims, I’m not too mechanically inclined when it comes to cars.

    If you think you can fix it I can bring the truck to you, how far is real far?

    I read about that too, after I cleaned it the rough idle went down by about 70%. I’ve put about 300 miles on it since cleaning the throttle body.

    I did use motor craft plugs.

    No check engine light. I have suspected a vacuum leak, but don’t know how to find it. When I originally had the diagnostic done I had a real bad stutter around 2000 RPMs and it progressively got worse until it started to stutter through the whole RPM range. That’s when I changed the plugs, coils and mass airflow sensor. That solved 90% of the problems, but now the stutter is at idle , it’s better when the truck is completely warmed up, but still noticeable. Before I did all that work to it, and I forgot to mention that I also cleaned out the throttlebody, it idled at about 500 RPMs and at idle will drop down to about 300 RPMs and stutter, now it idles at about 600 RPMs and drops down to 500 RPMs, when it’s warmed up it idols in about 750 RPMs and doesn’t drop down and stutter as much.

    I need some diagnostics done to my 2004 F150. I’ve replaced the plugs and coils and the MAF sensor based off another shops recommendations and I still have a rough idle. Looking for a good mechanic to diagnose the rough idle. I’m in Gilbert Higley/Elliot area. Work off Dobson/Broadway.
