Have been workin' on my new to me(91k mi.)91 200 20vTQA, and thanks to this
list and several great web sites, things have been going well. New Bilsteins
and Bomb transformed the car. UFO brakes work very well in this car. 87
degree thermostat and new rad. fan fusable link, and lots of switch light
bulbs installed. I think I need a need a transaxle seal on the passenger
side. Oil burning smell from the cat below it. Small cover on trans. was a
bit loose, tightened that, but still have smell. Looks like a tight fit to
replace that seal. Do I have to take down the exhaust header? I hope not.
I guess next, is to get an alignment done. But before I do this, I
feel a thumping in the steering wheel when going over rough pavement. I've
cranked down on the rack adjustment bolt and the new shocks have helped.
I've read a lot about bushing replacement, tie rod ends, ball joints, etc.
But before I replace anything, any advice would be appreciated. Is the most
likely culprit the strut top mount bushings? Also, how do I check the tie
rods and ball joints? TIA
