papa smurf wrote papa smurf wrote we both believe similar things then but my belief in my fellow englishmen leads me to trust that their self-respect will allow them only to use entitlement as a last resort whereas you seem to think many americans will immediately give up trying if they can get the basics for free. forty years of experience has shown me that it works that way here. the more that is given the more they not only want but they more that they feel they deserve. pick a random person around my parts and on one hand they are proudly milking the system for what its worth and decrying the rich as selfish greedy and not paying their fair share. its both insane and maddening. of cpurse it doesnt help that the entitlements here are designed to make you more dependant. for instance unemployment discourages working by making it largely an all or nothing deal. you cant work a little and build your way up with slowly reduced benefits because that would lead too many people off the roles and not dependant on the government. the system wants to be milked. i certainly wouldnt criticise what is clearly your experience perhaps i am too much the optimist. the unemployed here get what is called job seekers allowance which is only paid if you can prove you are actively seeking a job and not excluding any offers unreasonably. it seems pretty effective along with our reasonably robust economy keeping unemployment down to 5%. oops hit reply prematurely. technically they have to looking for work but the enforcement on this comes and goes depending on who is in power. and they only have to looking within their speciality. our unemployment has reached the 10 year high of 6.4% which has caused almost orgiastic joy amoungst the press and anti-conservatives. bit less fussy here - you get a little time to find your preferred line of work if not its whatever pays the bills. and perhaps your countrymen give you reason to be more optimistic. ours is ladden with a growing number of social leeches. it should be pointed out by me that this country still has a strong backbone of incredible hard-working caring ethiced people as well. i think the values held by most britons of a strong work ethic and belief in self responsibility are also common in the americans i meet. but then you only meet the ones that have gotten it together enough to travel not the group that hangs out behind the 7-11 each night. very true but i still hang on to my prejudice that at heart the american majority are worthy people who share most of the aims and beliefs that are prevalent throughout our common history. -- julian. ---------- general melchett from blackadder describing his regiments coat of arms . . . .two dead frenchmen atop a pile of dead frenchmen. . . . . .

i think that you may be confused again. i dont recall ever saying to replace the entire rear really here is the entire post no. it sounds like the front pinion bearing has failed imagine that and will need to be replaced. the rear should also be replaced when this happens. you will come on max... its pretty obvious he was referencing the rear pinion bearing - not the entire rear-end. front pinion bearing should be replaced... the rear should be replaced as well. .

i have to disagree with consumer reports. they have a bias towards all japanese vehicles. they rarely rate an american vehicle as a recommendtion. i test drove a base tundra eight foot bed 2 door with a six cylinder. it had more noise a bouncier ride less interior room and worse gas mileage hard to believe than the dodge ram 1500 4.7. i decided to go with a real truck and went for the dodge. so far ive been happy. with 3800 miles it has been one of the best cars ive owned it averages about 14.85 mpg with a max of 17.85. i decided that the mileage was pitiful on all trucks including the six cylinder s-10 ranger etc. it sounds enough like a v-8 to let you know its there but then quiets down for cruising. i do agree that the back end does tend to go sideways if you hit a large bump or pothole. i dont know what they mean about hard to read gauges. i find the white guages very easy to read. ive lost most respect for consumer reports when it comes to vehicle rating. i know if its american they hate it and japanese they love it. this is because japanese cars and trucks are just better. as much as it pains me to admit it it is true. look at the latest jd power long term report. now good is that american cars are getting better than the european ones. so there is still hope. http//money.cnn.com/2003/07/08/pf/autos/bc.autos.durability/index.htmcnn=y es from reading this article it looks to me that jd powers included mercedes in the chrysler group. it states that the mercedes averaged 318 and the dailmer/chrysler average was 311. that would probably move the chryser number lower if mercedes was not included in the average. for the higher price you would pay for an import that even comes close to comparing to the quad cab you could replace anything that eventually goes wrong with the dodge. hd .

thanks to those who replied especially those who replied directly. the sensor was bad. after reading toms post i was a bit worried as the speedometer worked fine. after a few days however the speedometer wouldnt work until i was going about 20mph. thanks again. lee bower stop getting ready to head to the dealer the abs light and brake light came on upon starting the truck. the light stays on at all times while the engine is running. what should or can i do taking it to the dealer is the last thing i want to do - right after visiting the dentist to get a root canal. unfortunately theres not a whole hell of a lot you can do. do you notice the rear wheels locking up under hard braking this would be an indication that the rwal has in effect turned itself off. if this is the case about the only thing you can hope for is that its a loose electrical connection at the cab module next to the master cylinder. first disconnect the battery to reset the cab module then remove the electrical connector from the cab skinny black cigar-box looking thing next to the brake master cylinder clean the connectors coat them with dielectric grease re-install and re-connect the battery. is there any flakiness with your speedometer 98s and up get both their rear wheel abs information and speed/odometer information from the same sensor - located on top of the rear differential. if you notice anything with your speedometer like not registering at all until you hit 15mph or so it could be the rear wheel speed sensor. this is about a $40 part and simple to change. does the brake pedal feel spongy at all like maybe somehow theres air in the system doubtful since you didnt mention anything about any work being performed that would have opened up the brake system but were reaching here. if so bleed the system or have it bled if you dont know how and then reset the brake computer as above by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. aside from those three options im afraid you dont have much choice but to take it to the dealer. you cant extract any trouble codes from the brake system without a dealers scan tool. a generic obd-ii scan tool that you can buy/rent/borrow from local auto parts stores will only give you engine diagnostic codes. the brake system is completely proprietary. .

manual transmission clutch not releasing ok heres the truck. 1999 2500 diesel 5 speed. 57000 miles. no prior transmission or clutch problems. yesterday it was 100 degrees out and i drove the truck on a shopping errand about 50 miles away. i left the truck running at several stops. i noticed it was becoming stiff or difficult to shift. i couldnt get the truck into 2nd at one light so i left it in neutral while the light was red i had to kill the engine to put the tranny in gear and then restart. it was not releasing fully as when i started it to dragged the truck forward with the clutch depressed. i got on the interstate and headed home. after driving the 50 miles it now releases perfectly. the fluid reservoir is full. comments suggestions could the fluid in the system have boiled from the heat . 222 263079 su0ngv4gs21g2igqbre12fsdpn4nuletgp@4ax.com guzzler that would bury your results my trips were in a nissan that got about 25 mpg. also be sure that you arent fooled by the headwind/tailwind factor on whatever loop you choose. then dig up this thread and re-post with your data. im in so. calif and i only like driving north. i dont want to see new mexico or texas again unless its looking out an airplane window from 30000 feet. unless youre able to do the math or willing to do the experiment youll continue to guess. math you snipped it out of your reply. didnt you like to see how the drag of an 8mph wind obscures that 1-hp needed to gain elevation your hypothetical 1-horsepower extra engine isnt quite an accurate picture either. you cant divide a 20-horsepower engine into twenty 1-horsepower engines and say that theyll still drink the same amount of fuel. best regards martin aw i insulted texas and youre mad. i did live in waco for a couple years and liked it a bunch. the west half of the state is pretty bleak though. to each his own. no insult taken from a native from new mexico. we dont like californians unless they stay in california anyway. same with texans. woops! i live in texas now......does that make me a texan dont tell my folks they will disown me!! if you ever hear me say yall or fixin to fell free to slap me silly. btw this is tongue in cheek guys. i dont like the heat and humidity of north texas but prefer the desert. i do like the good well paying and prolific engineering jobs here though. live and visit where you like but its all america. sure beats anywhere in iraq iran siberia etc......... .
