Check for a vacuum issue. Buy a vacuum gauge from Harbor Freight for $10. It is better than a code scanner. God I feel like a broken record here, but it IS an important tool for any auto repair. ...

Yeah! I kinda agree with Mystro. A plastic bed-box would actually make more sense than anything else, maybe even metal! They could afford to be thicker than the Saturn-plastic. They could weigh...

You might not be building pressure. Rent the rad-pressure tester from the local parts store. See if it holds pressure. Do it cold, with the engine off on the old 5.9 of yours. They can sometimes...
