Grocery Capacity of a Pontiac Fiero
And it could have held twice this much, and even more in the second trunk up front. So, Pontiac Solstice sales are down, after the initial mad rush to be on the waiting list? Who woulda thunkit. After the ones who just HAD to be the first to own what is essentially a four-wheeled motorcycle, who else would be buying? Certainly not people who might reasonably expect a sports car to hold a few bags of groceries, or a 50-pound sack of potting soil, or 40 brick pavers, or a duffle bag and backpack for a weekend trip. All of which I can and have carried in the front and rear trunks of Old Red. Parking lot doughnuts, burnouts, drifting and 180's are all a blast. But sometimes, practicality trumps Big Fun. It's a pretty safe bet Bob Lutz doesn't shop for his own groceries, or he never would have approved the Solstice for production with that ridiculous "trunk". It should be a never-ending source of embarrassment for him and his engineers that the Miata folding hardtop has more trunk space with the top down than the Solstice's folding soft-top has with the top UP. And as the owner of two GM cars that were designed and built here in America, I'm entitled to rip GM up, down and sideways.

Before replacing your car's clutch, check the master / slave cylinder. Could Save Big $$.
Before replacing your car's clutch, check the master / slave cylinder. Could Save Big $$. On the way to work one day I noticed that my clutch pedal was softer than usual. Over time, the clutch pedal got softer, spongier, and it was harder to shift gears. The clutch would engage or disengage about 4 inches off the floor, then it was 3 inches, then 2 inches, finally 1 off the floor and I couldn't shift into first gear and all the other gears were very tight and there was some grinding. My first thought was that I was going to have to spend at least 450 bucks to replace the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing. Basically, all the things that you'd need replace for a clutch job. After some thought and research, I realized it was either the clutch slave or clutch master cylinder. Here's why- When I was able to shift gears, there was NO slipping, grinding, whining, and the gears shifted easily. If you have slipping, grinding, whining and the it's hard to get into gear, you may need a clutch. Provided your clutch pedal is acting like usual. But you should check fluid levels in the clutch master / slave cylinders. If the fluid is low add some to it, look for leaks. If you add fluid and it goes away, chances are you have a leak. That may be the cause of your problem. It is possible that you may have to adjust the clutch cable. That wasn't the case for me. The cable was fine and still tight. I've been pretty vague on actual specifics in this video. It's more for general information. Or really basic troubleshooting. It's something to check before you commit to a new clutch.. My repair was 30 bucks, Not 450 Bucks! Very happy about that! Anybody else ever replaced a clutch master / slave cylinder? ______________________________________ Home: http://www.cheapgeek.net Twitter: http://twitter.com/Cheap__Geek Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/cheapgeek1/

Performance Clutch - Explained
What is a performance clutch? Clutch kit? How does a performance clutch work? A performance clutch basically involves three changes over traditional organic clutches. This video features a Yonaka performance clutch kit. A performance clutch has a higher clamping force on the pressure plate (via the diaphragm spring). Performance clutches use different materials which can absorb less heat and that don't lose performance at higher temperatures. Finally, performance clutches use a "puck" design, 3 puck, 4 puck, 6 puck, which increase the pressure on the friction material, to prevent slip.

Of course with any camera-recorded music it doesn't quite do it justice, but we think you'll be able to get a better idea of how well the subwoofer box works!

Bleeding a Clutch by Blocking the Slave Cylinder
Blocking a clutch slave cylinder allows the clutch master cylinder to actually start flushing from the master cylinder down to bleed a clutch hydraulic system. This can only work with external slave cylinders that can safely and effectively be blocked.
