    From what I understand, the MSX140 EMMs were later in production and had better electrolytics. Some of the other issues would typically surface by now, if they were going to happen. So, if it ain't...

    It would seem very odd and an extreme coincidence that you would have two defective "paddle wheel" sensors. Not to insult your intelligence, but does your ohm meter read zero or near zero ohms when...

    To verify the injectors are on the correct cylinder, you would only require DW, not a QR code reader. The injectors have S/N on their labels which are also displayed in DW. The only instance a QR...

    It's more of a yellow. It is Valvoline X-All grease. I apply a coat to the hose barb to aide with seating the hose. It is especially helpful when installing 1/4" hose on a 5/16" barb---which also...
