lmao trailer wiring is a pain in the ass but better than rewiring a fuse box with no markings

2017-04-13 19:22:17 UTC  

when pump bleeding you push the seals past the part of the o?ore they usually ride over

2017-04-13 19:22:56 UTC  

and it can but not always fuck the seals up because they're worn in over time for the usual length of pedal travel

2017-04-13 19:23:15 UTC  

putting them to the floor like that is no bueno unless it's a brand new or newish master cyl in there

2017-04-13 19:24:47 UTC  

recently my fckin abs light keeps flashing and glitching i'm pretty sure i'll need to bleed and adjust at some point brakes are stiff as shit

2017-04-13 19:25:00 UTC  

probably wheel sensors tbh

2017-04-13 19:25:10 UTC  

or wheel bearing

2017-04-13 19:25:35 UTC  

scan it

2017-04-13 19:25:40 UTC  

any way to test without a scanner I mean I cant pull code sadly

2017-04-13 19:25:55 UTC  

4wd works great tested that

2017-04-13 19:26:03 UTC  

oh shit interesting news check that out

2017-04-13 19:29:24 UTC  

no way to read codes w/o scanner on that model

2017-04-13 19:29:40 UTC  

you can get a cheap one on amazon

2017-04-13 19:29:45 UTC  

maybe even a bluetooth one

2017-04-13 19:31:21 UTC  

that would be the shit i'm sure I can look one up its just annoying as fuck and didnt wanna pay the mechanic out the ass to rip it apart esiecially not the beaner in my town he "fixed" my shifter with disasembling and reassembling the fucker instead of replacing the bearings

2017-04-13 19:31:28 UTC  

my surface just overheated from the sun

2017-04-13 19:31:44 UTC  

look into elm327 adapters

2017-04-13 19:32:03 UTC  

if you have windows pc with bluetooth i have some real expensive software i can send you to use w it

2017-04-13 19:32:23 UTC  

you can do a LOT with it but its not really bi-directional

2017-04-13 19:32:39 UTC  

u can read info and codes and data etc but the only commands you can send is clear codes

2017-04-13 19:33:07 UTC  

well thats about what I figured with a truck that old didnt expect to do any tuning

2017-04-13 19:34:06 UTC  

you cant do bidirectional for less than like 1k anyway

2017-04-13 19:34:30 UTC  

ive spent a lot of fucking time on this too

2017-04-13 19:35:01 UTC  

i didn't want to buy a big scanner but they force you to

2017-04-13 19:35:23 UTC  

yeah no doubt but yeah the adaptor is cheap enough and nothing to fancy for an old fuck like me to read and work with

2017-04-13 19:35:42 UTC  

i think the device is the cheap part and most of the expense is in liscensing the code from the manufacturers to communicate with all the different factory systems and checks
