Is this a sudden new development? How old is your gas? Do you live in a cold environment? Moisture in the gas perhaps... I ran into a similar problem with my other vehicle and it actually turned out...

You should just drill it out then and go for the helicoil, although a Keensert is stronger.

Can you TAKE OUT the Allen screw? If so, you could probably get a tap and die set and put in a Keensert. A helicoil might work too.

Not quite sure I understand you. By saying you researched steel and aluminum covers with no luck, does that mean you can't find one?

Is it a 2.5L? I would think it'd be pert near useless and gutless with an auto tranny on a 2.5L.

Linkage? Can you tell if the motor is activating and just not cycling the wipers or does the motor not do anything at all? You may have cooked your wiper motor.

It probably wouldn't be difficult to build a circuit that would allow it. I'll have to work on that. It would just require a DC-to-DC conversion with a few caps, resistor, zener diode, and a...

If you're in a cold weather climate, use some high mileage 5W-30 or 10W-30. Synth most likely won't matter or make a difference in that old of an engine for reasons already stated above by others....

Mileage is NOT going to be your friend with a rig like that. I have 4" of lift (I think...I didn't do it myself) and 33" tires. Trail riding I get horrible mileage. I went about 40 miles on trails...

Hi CTM,

Your starter may have siezed. Get underneath and rap it with a pipe a few times and then have your son try and start it. Make sure, of course, that it's in neutral if you stay underneath...
