  1. 9-5 idle vibration: Quick tutorial on raising idle speed with Tech 2

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey Andy, I just found out something else this weekend. I noticed after taking the TB cover off that the check valve for the PCV was broken. I repaired it and noticed that vibration at stop lights was even less now. Barely noticeable at this point.
  2. Brake booster vacuum line

    9-5 Workshop
    Interesting enough, I broke this over the weekend and ended up wrapping it in magic tape for now. What exactly happens if it is broken completely? I'm hoping it's not a "no brakes at all" issue. I'm going to get it replaced this week.
  3. After spark plug replacement

    If you are stock there is no reason to run a colder plug. That said, shouldn't necessarily cause your issues. Make sure the plugs are gapped right and also make sure your IAT's aren't super high (crazy hot outside and using open air intake).

  5. Adjustable Sway Bar Links - AUS

    I guess if you are severely lowered and want to maintain the proper angle for the end links to control arms and can't find any cheaper static length endlinks, then these could make sense.

    Thanks. Still need to polish things and wrap the charge pipe. Just like messing with it at times.

  9. Odd misfires: only during deceleration at a stop light

    9-5 Workshop
    My 06 9-5 has developed an odd behavior. This week, according to opensid it is getting anywhere from 4-10 misfires EVERY time the car comes to a complete stop at a stoplight. It doesn't happen during acceleration at all. Also when pulling into the garage when I put it in Park if I sit there...

  11. Huge loss of power when warm outside, any ideas?

    9-5 Workshop
    Interesting this came up to the top again, because I experienced this yesterday, same as the OP. I have a DO88 IC though...and IAT's were in the 50C's due to the heat wave this week and bumper to bumper traffic. I'm going to clean the MAF, TB, and Forge DV this weekend to see if that helps at...

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    alternative answer: disregard maintenance and have it stage 4 tuned tomorrow. You can replace it next week if it blows up with the same car cheap. :cheesy: In all seriousness, it depends on a lot of factors beyond just a "here's how much it can handle". Mine aisin 5 speed auto is at...

    I see. Funny enough when I swapped suspension bits my steering wheel was almost 120 degrees off. Made for an interesting drive to get an alignment.

    What was the purpose of the wood block attached to the wheels? I'm trying to figure out what you were doing there.

    Replaced my old Joying 2016 head unit with a brand new one with zlink/carplay. I'll post a new thread to a link with my review on Youtube later when I do it this evening or tomorrow. For now here's a real quick video with bad lighting in the garage of Carplay integration built in:
