    Hood replacement question
    I want to replace my regular stock hood with the gt legacy hood that has a hood scoop. Will the opening on the hood scoop effect my engine compartment since there is no air intake on the engine.

      No it won't affect it. Although i couldn't say the same if it was the other way around since that scoop is for the top mount intercooler

      You should check the condition of your flasher (it may be defective or the wires/connection is loose/corroded) and check for battery voltage and ground at your light’s electrical connector (if battery voltage is present check the condition of your bulb socket and electrical connector ground terminal for proper ground, and if your battery voltage is present at your light connector but not in the socket clean the ground of your terminal connector [if the ground and battery voltage is present in your bulb socket, you should replaced your bulb])

      A defective relay can also cause it.

      If its not the Drain tubes, have you checked the weather strips on it. They might be loose.

    When using heater, it won't blow out at my feet.
    Turn dial to select the air be foreced thru floor vents, and not much comes out? Only comes out thru the dash vents. Is something clogged?

      Most likely, the blend door has broken where the actuator goes into it.

      Look under the passenger side of the dashboard, behind the plastic cover that goes across the center under the dash. Pop the pushpins. Then look for a square box with a 2 wire connector to it. On the right hand side of it, you will see a shaft, it operates the blend door. Chances are it it busted.

    Moon roof won't close all the way.
    I went for a ride and opened the moon roof. Never had trouble with it before. Went to close it and it will go as far as the safety stop. I tried to close it further, and it will go approx. 3 inches and then it stops. Still a gap of about 8 inches. HELPPPPPP!!!!!

      I'm not really sure what's going on with it but there should be a mechanical override listed in your owners manual (typically a screw behind a door on the ceiling right behind the moon roof) that will at least get it closed until you can get it fixed.
      Sorry I can't be of more help.

      I found that the manual override was stripped! =( The guy who does my vehicle repairs is going to see if he can get it closed tomorrow. Then I am NEVER opening it again! lol Thanks for the help.

    Air conditioner works when I first start the car but stops working after about 5 min.
    The pressure is good so I don't think it's a leak?

      My 1997 Subaru Outback did this and the pressure was good. The condenser fan was the problem. The condenser fan pulls air over the condenser to cool the refrigerant. When you turn on the air conditioner the condenser fan should come on if it does not unplug the fan and see if it has voltage going to it. Also check the fuse for the condenser fan. On my car the condenser fan is the on the passenger side it should come on when running the air. I am not an expert on climate control but this is what fixed mine with the same conditions, good luck!

      Correction both fans turn with air on.

    My radio stations are only static after an oilchange. No FM no AM, but the cd works well
    The antenna for the radio seems to be part of the rear side window

      I cannot think of any relationship between an oil change and your static but crazier things have been known to happen.

      Make sure your antenna is fully extended, maybe they put it down for some reason. It is not a very long antenna but it will make a difference. I put mine down once when washing the car and could not pick up any stations

    Can I replace the rear lift gate?
    I was hit from the rear. Need to replace entire rear liftgate

      Yes of course you can replace the liftgate, you actually have to options buy a new one (hopefully your lift struts are still ok so you don't need to buy them OR you can bring it to a collision shop) of course you have to do the math first on which would be cheaper.
