  1. I believe the coolant reservoir is a common problem for the 626s. If it has a leak the coolant won't pressurize and will cause boiling. Same thing happened to mine. When you turn your car off listen to see if you can hear any hissing from the reservoir
  2. OK, thanks. I'll check those out tomorrow. Will running the car with a bad crank pulley cause harm to the engine? Will the pulley eventually fly completely apart? Also, are the two tensioners the only culprits(as far as the belts are concerned) for bad bearings?
  3. running your car completely out of oil can of course cause numerous severe engine problems. Maybe you didn't run it completely out though, even if there is no oil on the stick there can still be some in the case. It would be best if you could pull the codes and see what codes its throwing. The longer it ran without or with very low oil, the worse.
  4. how long did it run with the cap off?
  5. Well, I haven't been on here since the fall after I got my I4 626 because it hasen't had any problems. My 99 V6 6262 has been sitting for quite a few months now and I decided to fire it up today. When I started it up a month ago I noticed a weird sound(s) coming from the engine but I didn't have time to deal with them. Now I'm hoping to get it on the road this spring. Anyway, When I first start it up, I can hear a load, high pitched and unmistakable whining/grinding sound from the engine, I don't know exactly where. Its more like a high pitched whine that gets higher with the RPMs. It gradually fades away to nothing once the engine has warmed up after about 5 minutes. While I was inspecting everything, I noticed that the crank pully wobbles about 1/4 inch. Is that normal? Also, Once the intial whining has died down, I can hear a lower pitched whining/grinding that never goes away, coming from near the alternator area. Any Ideas? I would really appreciate it! Thanks!
  6. Added a new addition about two weeks ago, 2000 626 2.0L manual trans. Anyone know from experimentation or any other means what the most fuel efficient cruising RPM is and also at how many RPMs to shift at for best fuel economy?

Now that I think about it, this should have gone under performance and tuning. Damn.
  8. How do you bypass the coolant lines? I'm a little intimidated by doing this swap myself. I have a pretty strong mechanical aptitude and I can usually figure out how to fix almost anything that breaks on my vehicle, but Iv'e never done anything to this extent, so I'm trying to gather as much detailed information as possible on how to do this swap. Will I be using a hyraulic clutch? Will the computer be compatable with the MTX tranny? My guess is that i would just connect the two ends of the coolant lines together.
  9. Great, thanks. I was reading through it but I didn't cath anything about the coolant lines. My trans does have those lines running to it, doesn't it?
  10. My A/C fan is on the passenger side and its a 1999. Whichever fan is smaller is the one that turns on when you turn on the A/C. The larger is the one that turns on when your gauge reads a little too hot
  11. Alright, so I have the 99 v6 auto and I hate the transmission. Simply hate it. Anyway, how much would it really take to convert it to a standard 5 speed? I'm sure the ECM would need to be swapped, the pedals would need to be changed, perhaps new driveshafts, but what else would that job entail? would it even be worth it?
  12. Yes the timing belt was replaced before i bought it sometime ago, as for the water pump I am not sure. Is the water pump in an accessable area? Not quite sure of its location. Also, is the timing belt directly under the black cover on the left side of the motor, or do you also have to remove the valve covers to get to it?
  13. Sounds good. Are the malfuctions in those transmissions caused by overheating? And I have two leaking valve cover gaskets, but I don't expect them to be too costly or hard to replace, but I may be wrong.
  14. Ok, so I have the 99 V6 automatic es model, and it needes major transmission work/replacement. 203,000 miles, everything else perfect condition. The only other mechanical worry I have is that there is a whining noise coming from the timing belt area after I ran some seafoam through my motor. Anyway, I can get a used tranny with 100K on it installed for 1200, a rebuild for 1600, or a new jasper for 3500. I am iffy on the cheapest 1200 used tranny because these transmissions are notorious to begin with. Would a rebuild hold out for long? And at this mileage, should I expect any other major problems to arise? Thanks! Also, I bought it for $1800 for it only 3 months ago
