To be clear.. the pump i refer to failing at 80 mph was the chevy.. not the honda.. the honda tranny gave me plenty of warning before it finally tanked.. the chevy gave none..

Id lease that volt if i got one..10K miles per year.. try to do them all electric....

Between that clunker and my 85 regal grand national. . Brake failure.. master cylinders were electric boost but gms parts were junk.. burned 4 master cylinders at 450 a clip dealer.. no one had the thing.. got rid of that GN just because of suck butt brake issues..

Yes bad oill pump..cheap nylon crap I think.. that car burned 3 heater cores.. I cracked some interior components in choice places and could have that core out and in in under 3 hours with the air purge, bad front wheel bearings.. bad radiator.. piece of junk jim.. the ONLY reason I kept it was thet put the reman in.. oh did I mention ac issues??my hondas have me spoiled. . the. o3 trans was a fluke for honda.. that pump failed at 80 mph on wind gap pass pa rt 33 south near palmer ,pa.. it clanked for 8 miles before I exited the highwayy at 9pm.

es jim... 4 ft flous. tube LED replacement bulbs are avail.. use 15-17 watts per bulb.. some need no ballast.. must disconnect.. other still use.. but if ballast goes south... gotta buy another ballast ... 2.8L MPI dumped an oil pump.. threw the furthermost rod.. and piston head.. they rebuilt it all... only to have the block crack a week after delivery.. then they gave me the reman engine ! .. joe

that works for me!! The Volt looks darn enticing... I was at the T dealership on Sunday.. they spit 100K prices like chewing tobacco... I saw one coming in on a tow truck too.. bent rear control arm pass side.. must have hit a pot hole good... I like that new champagne color, my GF like the dark blue.. which looks black to me... the Volt would have to really be something.. for me to buy.. haven't owned a chevy since 2005 when I sold my 89 Cav Z24 for $2200.. got 169K out of that but chevy bought me a new reman engine at 73K... else that would have been junked in 1994.. best J1

GM, jim.. yes, I am hardcore HD guy... still like Lowes a bit better.. though depot did my interior doors for me.. all 11.. great deal on doors.. perfect install... now I need to seal them with the poly stuff.. hours of tedium . thinking of getting certainteed to paint.. not sure... as far as solar pv ownership numbers are concerned.. we recently sold our 30th energy credit for system one... with the 30 energy credits sold, and the 30, ooo kWhrs displaced.. we are almost to $12K of our original out of pocket $22K.. that being about 4 full years or so in..looks like about a 6.5 year pay off if all proceeds as has.. we gat an average of $217 per credit... and of course our 18.2 cent per kWh rate (delivered) helps towards that end.. if we last to see the system break investment.. we'll have 8-9 years of solid return back to look forward to... the LED bulbs probably pay off faster!! ( grinding going for T-8 4 foot LED tubes... to replace flu. tubes!!) we grabbed 37, 39 last few days.. tha

Bio mass? Hmmm..like a compost pile that generates heat? How would one proceed and where would it gi? I know about zilch on bii mass.. what's your idea? I like how you approach stuff.. how does one get there from where you are? Attach to current heat source or rework entire system?? Great day ahead.. I hope!
