  1. could be the idle air controller. try cleaning first.
  2. i second the coil. its a very common problem. except you have a coil for each bank of 4 cylinders not 2 lol the exact same problem has happened to me. i changed plugs, wires, cap and rotor, and finally changed coils and it fixed the problem
  3. you should probably have that looked at. its probably leaking somewhere which can be very dangerous
  4. you need to either use a universal joint or get a universal joint socket. i prefer the universal joint socked.
  5. if it clicks it seems like the battery is bad. and being 3 years old i would just change it. its the cheaper of the 2 to change anyway
  6. sounds like the typical steering rack bushing problem i think daizen or someone makes a replacement. the dealer does not. its easy to change.
  7. is your ac still cold? if its just stuck on low fan speed its the fan speed controller. its a little circuit board that the temperature control knob is on. you have to replace that. the fan speed is controlled by the climate control.
  8. sounds like a bad coil? or maybe a temp sensor
  9. well if you are doing all the work yourself, it all depends on whats busted but its seems like your head gasket is blown right? so replacing the engine isnt something that is needed. but if you decide to do head work at the machine shop then it might get pricey. so just take both the heads and get a pressure test and resurface.
  10. not that i noticed. i had both well actually because the 300 had smaller tires and such it was i little worse than the 400
  11. more than likely its your o2 sensor. not the maf.
  12. honestly there is not much you can do to get the car not to sound like a chevy v8. reason 1 is because it is a v8. reason 2 is it has the same firing order as a chevy v8. of course bore and stroke have alot to do with it but why does an f355 sound the way it does? firing order plays a big part. the 1uz and chevy small blocks both have a 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 firing order. the f355 fires 1-5-3-7-4-8-2-6.
  13. ummm... these cars use sealed bearings and the hubs are pressed on. you need to remove the entire hub assembly from the car and use a press to push out the inner hub from the bearing and push the bearing from the hub carrier. so basicly take the hub to a machine shop or somewhere that does press work and have them press the new bearing in
