Re: Subject: help- car won't start after new air filter

Check the rubber boot above the airbox.  Odds are you loosened it 
to get the airbox cover up, and you either did not seat the
boot properly, or forgot to put it back on.

If this boot is not sealed tight, the car will not start.
On both my 90Q and my 4kq, the boot has popped off at one time
or another.  The first time took me a while to figure it out,
but last week it happened on the 4kq and I knew exactly where
to look (my wife reported a loud "pop" after she started the car,
and it died)
