Audi A4 2.8L 30v - Stock vs Borla Pro Xs
Most recent post: "IF you want my advice, go to techtonicstuning.com, buy
the borla or magnaflow catback Exhaust, aluminized to save a few bucks or
stainless if you don't care. They sound amazing and they don't drone. They
are specifically tuned and mandrel bent. do it right!"
Just installed a Borla Pro Xs Muffler (40348). the muffler is a bit long,
but fit with some modification to the inlet and custom piping.
Great tone, was a bit loud for the mic on my camera, but the idle sounds
Cabin noise is greatly increased with a lot of resonance drone under
Between 2200 and 2600rpm. If you don't push it, it's quiet, but as soon as
you give it gas, it gets quite loud inside.
I probably should have added this a long time ago, but if you're looking to
do this, see what other options there are, this one is definitely one of
the cheaper ones, but It's so long that the fit is really tight. You may
benefit from a muffler that isn't 19" long.
recently removed the borla and replaced it with a shorter inexpensive
magnaflow, it was a good move, I'll try to post another comparison at some
point. Apparently there is a lot more to Exhaust than I initially thought.
My audi is incapacitated, if you have the 2.8l engine, be sure to pay close
attention to the condition of your PCV valve... apparently the 2.8L engine
is highly prone to sludge buildup and will clog. I was quoted $4300 to
replace all the the oil seals in the engine. Unfortunatly I will probably
not be posting any further videos with this car. IF you want my advice, go
to techtonicstuning.com, buy the borla or magnaflow catback Exhaust, aluminized to save a few bucks or
stainless. They sound amazing and they don't drone. do it right!
Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 3/21/2014: My car is still working fine. I still have not had a
problem with it starting since I posted this video 5 years ago. Still on
the same battery. Thanks for all the comments!
This is me showing how I cut the passlock wire on my car. My car would not
start on damp, cold mornings, often taking 30 - 40 minutes to get it to
start. After reading several forums I found users who were doing this to
"fix" the problem. I thought I would tape this for anyone who was thinking
of doing the same but doesn't know anything about cars. Like me. :)
Note: I owe thanks to meron for the post at this link
http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1137a7/83 it is where I
first heard about this solution.
Update 10.6.2012: I added a switch, I believe it was this one
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062533 I installed
it with it in the off position, started the car, switched it to On while
the car was running and the service engine light went away. Car started
fine after that. I just shut it off again as it was cold one morning this
week and I had trouble getting the car started. Once I got it running,
turned it off and haven't had trouble starting it since. YMMV
Saturn Idle problem.mov
In this video we show you how to replace an idle air control solenoid and
clean the throttle body on a 1996 Saturn. This car was having a
excessively high idle. It would stay at 1500 RPM even though your foot was
not on the gas pedal. This was caused by carbon build up around and behind
the throttle body as well as a defective idle air control solenoid.
Jonesy's Auto Club videos are for reference and entertainment only and
should not be taken as a direct step by step guides. If you attempt a
repair like the one seen in this video please use the proper safety
equipment, take your time and do the job right.
Cobalt SS/SC Borla ZZP Exhaust.
zzp shorty header, 2.5" non resonated Exhaust with borla muffler, and now a 2.5"
downpipe instead of my 3" that i had before. Exhaust is quieter and less raspy with this
setup, i personally think its the best cobalt ive heard but im switching it
up for an agency power catback now.
2003 Saturn Ion that won't start in cold weather
Documenting my attempt to use a fix I found on the internet to resolve an
issue that plagues 2003-2004 Saturn Ions. The models in this year can have
difficulty starting in cold weather. At first it was pretty sporadic for
me but this year it was almost constant.
In the video I replace the ignition switch which actually ended up
resolving my problem. I guess there is a lubricant in this switch that
SHOULDN'T harden in cold weather but the ones that shipped in the cars of
these years do. Total cost $29.99 and about 30 minutes of time.
The specific symptoms you will see with this issue are (usually in cold
weather) you will try to start the car and it might crank a couple times
but then die. When you try to start it again you will hear a short fire
but then it stops. This is because the security system has kicked in and
shut off fuel to the vehicle for 10 minutes. After you wait 10 minutes you
can try to start it again. This cycle can happen multiple times (at its
worst I would have to go almost an hour of doing this).
Once you replace the part you may have to reset the security (passlock).
This is done by turning the key to start (but it won't) and then leaving it
in the run position until the lock light in the dash quits blinking (about
10 minutes). You then do this again (again waiting 10 minutes) and finally
a THIRD time (waiting another 10 minutes). After the third attempt you
turn the key to OFF and wait 30 seconds (this waiting is important I am
told!). It should then fire up.
Be sure to watch this on the Web if you can as I have a lot of in-video
comments to help!
