    Cant Change Clock

    When this happened to me the best way I found was to pull the positive battery cable and leave it off for at least 10 minutes . Then hook it up, it should return to normal . Hope it works . Kee us posted.

    97350, The fourth transmission fluid change. The fluid condition was much better then the previous drains. I refilled with Triax again so will up date in 25000 miles! I have the same fluid in a Chev 3500 1ton with and Allison that takes Dextron VI, it seems to be holding up well there also.

  6. Welcome to the club, On the third set of rotors on the rear and the second set on the front. I have found some raybestos brand rotors that are coated to help with the corrosion. Time will tell how they hold up. Winter salt, Calcium Chloride on the dirt roads to keep the dust down , it is hard on the machine around here.

    Do you have a picture of the inside of the piece?
  8. The clamping load for a grade 5 bolt is 9046 lbs per bolt and a grade 8 bolt is 12771 lbs . If something fails on the hitch when you use it for a jack point it won't be the bolts. https://www.fastenal.com/content/feds/pdf/Torque-Tension Chart for A307 Gr5 Gr8 Gr9.pdf

    I have done mine at 25000 intervals. Lv for the first , Valvoline for the second and Triax for the third change. The first two looked to be in about the same condition. The fourth change will be this week I will up date the on the Triax condition. I will say the transmission shifts as well as ever.

    2013/gen1 TPMS issue

    I hope the lug nuts do the trick , it is a great Idea. The wheel studs being built into the Hub and not replaceable is complete Rubbish . I Checked out the hubs on both the Gen 1 and Gen 2 and they are like every other hub in the industry , pressed in studs and fully replaceable. You need to find a better parts store if studs are needed.

    2013/gen1 TPMS issue

    Not sure what tools you have . An Air hammer make the job easier ,but a stout hammer and a brass drift will be fine. Get several good nuts , not the lug nuts to pull the studs in , make sure to lubricate the threads. What is your shops rate? It could be a good deal in the end. Keep us posted.

    The studs are a good idea . 5/8" is close have you tried one and put a torque wrench on it ?

    2013/gen1 TPMS issue

    What is the total depth of the lug nut and how far did it thread into the lug nut on the Alloy?

    You can measure the stick out of the stud from the steel wheel and then do the same for the alloy wheel and see what the difference is . You can also put the steel wheel on and count the turns before the nut contacts the taper, and then do it for the alloy. If you do have to change the studs any good auto parts can find new longer studs that will fit.
