Skid plate removal on '93 90S
Does anyone know if it there is any ill effects to leaving the
skidplate off my car?
The reason I ask, is that the local quick oil-change places won't do
my car because it's "extra" work for them and the dealer quoted me $50
for an oil change. I figure that if I just leave it off then I don't
have to worry about it and I can take anywhere to have the oil
changed. I have heard that people have actually cut holes in it, to
have easy access to the oil drain and filter, but I really don't want
to do that. I suppose I could remove it, then take it to have the oil
changed, but if I'm going to do that, I might as well do it myself.
So, is there a reason that I shouldn't remove it and just leave it
BTW, I did try and change the oil myself this past weekend, but I
couldn't get the oil drain plug out for the life of me. I stopped
short of stripping the bolt. Any suggestions on getting it off?
While I'm at it. I still haven't gotten my cruise controll fixed. It
will work for a while then disengage. I have checked the vacume lines
and they seem fine, nothing out of the ordinary. I believe that my
next two options are: replacing the switch or replace the controller.
The switch would require me to remove the steering wheel, anybody know
how to safely remove the airbag, or is this something I should let the
dealer do? The controller should be easy to replace. Is there a way I
can test this to see if it is in fact the cause of my problem so I
don't waste my time/money?
Any help would be great.
