07V6 EX-L Chicago
yeah, i drove plenty of those as a valet, they’re hefty ladsWe flew to North Carolina for Thanksgiving. At the airport, the rental car company ran out of cars. The lady asked: "would you like a pick up truck?". I said no. Then she found me a Nissan Armada, pretty much a tank, V8 and 6000 lbs.
Yup. I bought two keys off Amazon for $13. Ace Hardware charges $30 and $40 to cut and program it. Can't remember which costs how much.
If you do this you need to bring all of your keys to them because all of them have to be programmed at the same time.
Here's the key I bought.
I think the black fob I have remaining still works. Is the immobilizer built onto the circuit board or housed elsewhere?Why would you just bring a valet key to them?
That might work. Depends on how the blank and original clamp in the cutting machine.
I wonder if you could use your valet key to put into your fob. Or you can just remove the key from the fob and put the fob and valet key on a key ring. I bet that would work also.
i miss my good rattlegunnot a fan of seeing people getting screwed. i prefer to do the screwing. my porter cable drill does okay when needed, but then i've got the big impact driver for the tough stuff.
the closest discount tire is in like... west palm beach, and i'm not sure i want to drive over an hour on this thing. four miles to work and back is fine.^well, at least it is not the sidewall.
FYI: I recently found out that Discount Tire repairs their flat tires for free
i was going to just plug them myself but i just remembered i have warranties on all four tires and they're basically new still so it doesn't have to be my problemIf those are both punctures, the tire might not be repairable with a combination repair unit (aka the good kind of tire plug). They look too close together.
I went through the same logic with my O2 (front) sensor.If those are both punctures, the tire might not be repairable with a combination repair unit (aka the good kind of tire plug). They look too close together.
As for me, I started mine up today and was greeted with the MIL and P0141 - Secondary HO2S (Sensor 2) Heater Circuit Malfunction. I'm happy it's not something more expensive/difficult/serious.
Currently researching the diagnosis procedure, and OEM Denso ($250 CAD) vs aftermarket Denso ($50 CAD), or other aftermarket sensors. The post above (#14,066) suggests to go OEM, but I'd have to get 5 faulty aftermarket for that to make sense. But then there's the downtime of constantly swapping them, and time is money too.
I called around today.I went through the same logic with my O2 (front) sensor.
NTK for $260 at NAPA/ Partsource / Cdn Tire, NTK $160/Denso $133 on Amazon, all kinds of knock offs for $50-60. For $100 difference- let's give it a shot.How bad could it be?
Result - Cost me a day of troubleshooting, about $60 in extra gas burned the month it was acting up in the car, and I still ended up buying the $133 Denso. At least I sent the PoS back and am being refunded my original $60.
