    Hi everyone, I’m looking to trade my white oem hardtop for either a red or black oem hardtop. Paint is pretty good condition for its age and the seals fit well with the windows. No water gets inside. The only issue with it is that the paint chipped off in the back corner due to improper fitting...

    Hey everyone, I have a p0171 (system to lean) code that won’t go away no matter what I do. With some research, I found that the 2zz has something different about the O2 sensors at the midpipe, either one more or one less than the 1zz or something I don’t completely remember. Do you think if I...

I took my car to my mechanic and he says the engine needs to be replaced, and that a rebuild is not possible due to the flaws (pre-2003) that cause the piston ring issues in the first place. He’s quoting me $2k to...
