As you can all see from the message title, my 87 5000s has learned to make
a new sound as she gets around the 98k mile mark.
Seems to be coming from the front end. Thought I had developed a nice
exhaust leak as sound rises and falls with car speed( Manual tranny here).
But the moving while de-clutched proved that thesis to be wrong.
I have felt both front rims and lug bolts after driving. No discernible
heat difference between the 2 wheels. Grrrrr is louder when negotiating
Is everyone thinking what I'm thinking. (As I prepare to make sacrifices to
the Gods. Still searching for that elusive virgin.)
I'm thinking it's the round thingey that's got balls and races. And it's a
part that's waaay beyond my tools and skills to fix so she might be off to
the (GASP!) dealer. Who's got that tub of V*seline.
Sigh! Is this a sign I should not be going to meet the DC q crowd?
