I'm hoping that is limited slip clutch material that didn't get removed in the last fluid change...
Then again this diff has 200k miles on it so it might be nearing its demise.
This photo was actually taken after cleaning quite a bit of it off

I borrow this Volvo from my dad as a winter daily. Today I went out to it as I do every day to head off to work and found a massive dent in the side, combined with a broken passenger mirror. After spending all day worrying about how that managed to happen without my noticing, my dad returns my texts to reveal that he backed into it this morning when leaving for work. I haven't felt this relieved in ages.

LOL!! Man, I would be SICK to my stomach if I did that to my dad's car. I wouldn't know where to begin...

Tell me about it!
Despite it not being my fault at all it has nudged me toward getting my own winter car so I'll be picking up my friend's Volvo 740 Turbo wagon later this year. I love that my dad offered this car but it's stressful dailying cars that aren't mine.

Took M3gan out for a drive today now that my steering wheel is back on (column bearing, dashboard light bulbs, and cleaned my wheel) and the roads have dried. Started up really nicely after a long slumber! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpwqzMbCkCg&hd=1

Took my wheel off for a good cleaning and to replace the bulbs in my instrument cluster (I don't have a tilt column so I can't get the cluster out past the wheel). Noticed that the upper column bearing has play so I guess I'll have to address that soon.

Can anybody recommend a great detailing shop around Santa Fe, NM? I'd love to get a maintenance detail to help keep the salt off on the way home. Also if there's anybody in the area with Torx bits who wouldn't mind helping out a fellow gearhead, the sunroof seems to have come loose on the way South and unfortunately we only have the factory toolkit.

Is it just me or does this sound like almost the perfect canyon carver?

I bet I'm the only one ever to pretend that the number of this Ford van is indicative of a v10 under the hood..

I was reading about the 2017 Camaro ZL1 in Car and Driver and they mentioned that the rear diff is cooled by the auto transmission fluid. Anyone know how it's cooled on manual trans equipped 2017 ZL1s?

Yesterday was absolutely ridiculous. M3gan (my M3) lost her fuel supply line (luckily while I had her on a lift!), my friend Sarah had her car backed into (by her dad), my friend Alex had his 540i's steering pump shear it's mounting tabs (one must already have been broken somehow), and my friend Ryan finished swapping the heads on his 2.5rs only to find that his transmission now overheats after a few minutes of driving (pretty sure he bent a

Finally fixed M3gan's passenger side hood latch last night. No more uneven shut lines! Hooray!

Rebuilt M3gan's shifter including a few modifications today along with some new transmission mounts. What an improvement!
