I dont know shit about cars like i've mentioned, but i got a Toyota 4runner and it makes a suuuper loud as squeeking noise when it starts and when i brake and accelerate. My dad says it has somethin to do with belts in it but he doesnt really know. And it does squeek more now that its winter and in the summer it still did this once in a while but only when i started it

Any of you guys have any ideas on what makes it squeek so loud and how i can fix it?

^your fan belt is loose/might be worn down. Moisture can get in between the belt and pulleys and cause that squeak you hear as well. You need to get an owner's manual and find the "idler pulley", and adjust it to pick up tension in the belt. If that doesn't work then you should probably just replace your belt and make sure it's in tight.

Thanks man, I'm still working on the front fitment, gotta get some spacers for those 002's sadly.


These are just temp wheels until I can afford something nicer in 5 lug/5 lug conversion.


I traded the aero for some injectors to start my KA-T build. ( Luckily I only spent like 60 bucks on the full kit :p. )

Nice SkRiLlZ, that is one serious vehicle. I saw one at the track earlier this year and it completely got me off guard. Just smoked a mustang. The owner had done a full open exhaust and it sounded mean. What year is yours?

lol just noticed your gas gauge is going on E. When you drive something with that much power who cares though right?

The city bus for now, sometimes the back seat, sometimes I stand, and the window seat if I am lucky //forums.stashedboxes.com/public/style_emoticons//smile.gif


Gave my mom my Honda before I took off for Asia. Got back and she had sold it :( I was bummed.

Hell yeah skrillz, you finally got it. is that a digital chronograph i see built in down by the tach? and as far as mods go, i know at least one company makes a quick shift kit for the tiptronic in that car, definitely worth looking into because i remember the manual mode shift times being as slow as molasses.
