Sorry about the two bleed screws advice...i just saw four-pot and figured they were aftermarket...guess i should read.


You certainly have something going on that's not right...You said that you took the bleeder screw out and no fluid came out, even when you pushed the pedal, that's really strange.

Could be a bad master cylinder...if the primary circuit fails in there it could cause brake dragging if the piston does not return all the way back to the first position. This would cause the right front and left rear to drag (i'm pretty sure the primary circuit in that year car was right front/left rear)

Could also be that you're not getting pressure past your ABS module. Never seen anyone bleed the system with the engine running. It may have gotten some pressure inside the BAS unit where it shouldn't be.

Have you tried bleeding it without the car on? Same results?

Disassembled my rods from crank shaft.

Removed arp studs from case halves.

Also let my mahle pistons soak in purple power to clean off the carbon on them.

Welp I hope I get a job soon so I can start saving and buying parts to rebuild.

Awesome freaking intercooler man!

We're running them on both of our cars and have loved them.

it's motor buildin' time!

Washed it, and continued fighting with my power steering. I need some help here.
Somehow, air is getting into my steering system. I've replaced the pump, replaced every old clamp with a new screw-type clamp, and bled the system like 5 times. I also replaced the crush washer and the o-ring at the top of the pump. If I get under the car and move the wheels by hand, I can hear the fluid sloshing around in the rack, like air is being forced into it. Could air be getting in through the rack somehow (seals)? Running out of options.

It seems like I remember one of your lines running from the tank to the pump was swelling...and bleeding a little
If it is not a line made just for transmission fluid it will swell and pass fluid and air
I had to get line from a local shop that makes hydraulic lines
The only line that autozone,napa,orileys had in the massive 5/8 was a red line.... and I didn't want that

Today I took the snorkus off my Forester and realized that the dealership that I bought my car from never installed an air filter. My car always sounded more aggressive and I had thought that maybe the previous owner had already done the snorkus mod. After I took the snorkus off I went to Auto Zone and bought an air filter. After all was said and done my car sounds the same as before, and feels the same. So maybe the two things cancelled each other out, but it should run better now.

Cleaned crude off the battery terminal with lots of baking soda and water. Hopefully the petroleum jelly will keep it at bay, otherwise Redtop waiting in the wings.

Did you change the fittings on the Mishimoto reservoir? The thread pitch on them is M12x1.0" but I can't seem to find any adapter from that size to the correct hose size. I think the Mishimoto outlets are 1/2" but our hoses are 5/8" and 3/8".

I went to home depot and they said that they could not cut it. Than I realized that maybe homdepot or any other hardware store was not the place to go cut a $20 key.
