Thanks for getting back to me. I was able to figure most everything out except the torque wrench. I pretty sure it's a clicker type but I never heard the click. Does it click only once? Maybe I'll give it another try. And you're right about wiggling the engine. I'm glad there was no one filming me when I was doing that. Would have made for a hilarious video. :-)

I do have another question though. I want to replace my CDV valve. I have one from www.zeckhausen.com but I haven't a clue where it goes. I've seen the instructions but it assumes you know where to luck. So if I put my car up on my ramps, and look under the driver's seat area I should see something like the picture?

Laura, For the torque wrench, you just give it a steady pull until you hear the click, then stop pulling. Some people give it a second click. Send me a picture or description(brand, model etc) from your torque wrench and I'll try to provide more how-to.

As for the CDV, find the clutch line under the hood and trace it to the side of the transmission, the location of the CDV.
Here's a link that contains information about replacing the CDV.

Did you complete the cooling system work?

Thank you thank you thank you! I replaced the CDV easy as pie. It's a wonderful difference. Whoo hoo!!!

The torque wrench is a Craftsman I bought at Sears. I think I'll play with it before I put you to any more work. (Mount a nut and then try to tighten a bolt into it at some specific torque setting and see if I hear a click. I know I didn't before...) That website you sent me is amazing.

Thanks again!!
