Yeah HID bulbs go pinkish-purple when they are about to die.

Not that additional light is needed at all with the LR3 HID set up, but you can use a D2R style bulb in a D2S socket if you cut a notch...

This is extremely important!

Also, I thought the theory about the metal pan taking less transmission fluid was debunked?

I would guess you have either not the right amount of fluid or not the...

It could be fuel pump related, but usually if that's the case it'll die when you rev it, or at least stumble, since the fuel pump can't maintain flow. It'll sometimes cause starting issues as well. ...

That's a V6 unfortunately. If the 4.4 is slightly under powered, the short lived V6 must be a dog. I guess if you are just driving it around town it might be OK. I may also be cynical, but the ad...

For the original poster, if the EPB lever was pulled with the cables disconnected, it would try repeatedly to engage and might jam the EPB unit (between the rear wheels). An IID Tool or other...

You won't need to suck it out the fill hole, it'll come pouring out if the truck is off. But that'll only drain a few quarts worth. I guess you could try to pump some out through the fill hole, but...

Well, I probably would have, given that if the engine overheated enough for it to lose power. That's pretty bad. And the temperature gauge was in the normal range? If it was, that would make me...

Yeah main benefit is in long term cost savings. Only need to buy the filter, not the entire pan for changes. Don't need to rip apart half the undercarriage to get the pan out.

I've heard the most critical part after resetting adaptations is to follow the instructions on how to drive to get the transmission to "relearn." If you just go in and reset the adaptations and don't...
