    Stripped headlight adjusting screw head

    It might be a little drive from where you live but I just went to Pull a part in Duluth and they got a 97 pathy in the back, if i remember correctly it was in good shape and the headlights were in tack. Im assuming you know of one closer to where you live, it just crossed my mind that i saw one this sunday. lol

    Cleaned MAF sensor tripped code

    Update: I did the relearn process and after a few painful attempts I was able to get it to work. The vehicle has returned to normal RPM and I cleared the codes. Thanks to all for the advice I had never heard of any sort of process of resetting like this! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cleaned MAF sensor tripped code

    I appreciate everyone’s responses I am narrowing it down to the throttle body. I removed it and sprayed it with throttle body cleaner and wiped it down. The thing was filthy the previous owner never touched it. I was thinking that maybe the computer is confused by the new amount of air flow entering since I cleaned it. It’s idling pretty bad. I tried the idle speed relearn on YouTube but it didn’t work, is there a specific process you have to do? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Just cleaned my maf sensor and throttle body this morning thought it would be a little thing to do. I didn’t have any problems, I just knew it had never been cleaned before. Just got done and I’ve got a “service engine soon” light on and the truck goes about 15mph without putting my foot on the gas lol. Is this just the computer recalibrating or something else? Anyone know what to do? Update: Tripped code P0507 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I agree I figured the mechanic just used conventional. I put in some valvoline full synthetic high mileage. 5w-30

    Early sign of blown head gasket?

    This information is great. I am very thankful for all that you wrote. Based on what you said, you have basically described my driving habits. The temperature is in the thirties and i drive 2-3 mile commutes to school early in the morning. I am very grateful for this piece of mind I was getting a little worried. I dont think I will escalate the situation because I think what you first said about the influx of oil being swooshed around and gasoline entering makes since considering my situation. Also seems a bit low mileage for a blown head gasket. I will keep you posted on any new information I gather. Thank you very much sir! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Background: I got my Pathy back in July of 2018 and it had about 103k miles on it. Originally it was leaking oil and i had that repaired by a mechanic I believe it was the oil cooler seals. The mechanic did an oil change then. Yesterday I did my first oil change on the pathy at 106k miles. I didn’t want to mess around because I wasn’t sure what oil he used and I like to stay on my own intervals. So as I was changing the oil I took off the oil cap and I noticed a lot of reddish brown powder on the inside of the oil cap. This concerned me cause I know brown sludge means you’ve got a blown head gasket. I checked the radiator and it’s green and full and the reservoir isn’t low. I cleaned the cap with some brake cleaner and then went on with the change. I didn’t think to take pictures of the cap when it was at its worst before I cleaned it but I went to take some pics today of what had already started to build back up after me cleaning it. The first pic is the cap and the second is the hole you put the oil in for a lack of a better word lol Prior to me cleaning it the cap was almost completely brown on the inside but there was no sludge it was just that brown dust. Let me know what you guys think is going on. I should also note that the truck is running normal. I am just learning about cars as this is my first one so any guidance would be appreciated. I could be just overreacting lmao Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Light bar and "Raptor/4Runner" running lights

    I completely agree. The hope is that in the future I will have a steel off-road bumper and it won’t be a problem. For the time being I think the brush guard would not combine well with a bug deflector but that’s just me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    UPDATE: I was finally able to get the billet on to the new grille. After a few coats of plasti dip, drilling and bending metal, it has finally been installed lol. I’m disappointed that I wasn’t able to find any color match paint but I might just paint the next sections to the side of the grille and under the lights black so they don’t contrast as much. Overall I’m happy with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New pathy

    Have you ever driven a CVT car? I wonder if you feel any shift or hear rpms. I would never want one of those things. Complete money pits Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
