my guess is most of the aftermarket parts on it would now be 'made in china' or 'made in mexico' = imported :muhaha: :yawinkle:

Re: 99 struggling

Derek939, Since your van is a '91, you will not have a mass air flow sensor on your van. These vans started to have mass air flow sensors on them in the '96 version. sorry about that derek... on your initial post asking it didn't state your year and i was in a rush neglecting to look at your avatar...

Re: 99 struggling

something like this is what you're looking for... it's inline with the air intake between the air filter housing and throttle body you separate the outer alum bread in the samwich .. the black part is the meat http://inlinethumb37.webshots.com/868/1513801661076568790S425x425Q85.jpg once separated .....

Re: 97 AWD swap into 99 2wd ?

thanks for the tip on the rear end. didn't even think about that one. i'll see how it all plays out. ultimately, i'd like the body as rust free as possible, a near impossible feat hear in rustario (ontario) i cry every time i see an underbody pic of a van from a salt free area that is years older th...

Re: subframe bushing replacement question

Wouldn't the procedure be the same as adding lift blocks? You might as well do all of them. If so, you could do it yourself with a few jack stands, but since you live in ON, be prepared for seized bolts, so presoak now! Have a hole saw ready. Probably should grab some new bolts. i'll get on the pre...

subframe bushing replacement question

my 97 awd is clunking when starting or stopping... turns out it's the rear most subframe bushings that are shot

dorman makes them for around $20 each (in Canada)

hard job to change them? should i do it myself or have a shop do them?

how long of a job is it?

thanks

Re: Wanted plastic trim on front fender flares.

best bet is the auto recyclers. bring a cordless drill with you though. there are two rivets as well as two plastic 'christmas tree' type plastic thingys that hold them in place. pop out the trees in the wheel well and drill the head off the two rivets and they are yours. i made a trip to the wrecke...

best way to install a starter kill switch?

wondering if anyone has installed a kill switch?

if so .. where? and what wire did you tap into ?

I want to install one on my 97 .. just a simple on/off type switch, hidden somewhere.
