Question Answered: the fuel filter
September 16, 2010, 11:53 AM
Fuel filter is on the Firewall by the Master cylinder. To change it I would release the pressure from the fuel system removing the fuel pump fuse. Turn the car on until it stalls ...try to crank it once or twice just to make sure it's dead. Removing the filter is pretty self explanatory after you see it . there are two hose one at the top and the other at the bottom. Just make sure not to damage the lines.

The Fix a Flat stuff can damage Tire pressure sensors that are in the Wheel...Bmw's use the reading from the sensor to control braking and steering. Right now what your getting is a warning showing that something is not right with the Sensor and since it's tied into multiple systems your getting multiple warning's. Have the Tire replaced or repaired. The lights should go away once the vehicle reads the proper signal from the tire pressure sensor.

Car Review: 2002 Jeep Wrangler
August 10, 2010, 01:28 PM
I purchased my 2002 Wrangler in 2006 with 48k miles...She ( yes SHE) now has 102k miles. I cannot complain one bit I knew what I was buying. The gas is horrendice , the ride is not quiet, the Jeep looks like a town house going down the road. But If i wanted alll those things I wouldn't by a Jeep. I plan on driving her untill the wheels fall off or my wheel stop spining. People say "that car just doesnt look dependable" ...I say lets compare repair cost's . My jeep has only seen a repair shop for tires and balancing ...Any other repairs can be done by a mechanicaly knowledge individual ( which I am) . Hands Down owning a Jeep is like having a dependable partner by your side.
