Re: Jacked up Cruise Control
wish i could get you a pic man my camera is broke though. the stock setup should run from the throttlebody, across the top of the engine or possibly wired down on the firewall, and run through a hole in the body right next to where the fuel filter goes, on the bottom of it sending it into a sorta concealed area lower below, if you look under the cars front passanger side bumper just in front of the tire, theres a rubber cover there when you look up, behind it is where the c/c device motor should be.
ps watch the harmonic balancer on these cars they are prone to go bad, and the rear trans mount is another big headache, ESPECIALY in the manuals, ESPICALLY WITH NEW OR UNDER EXPERIENCED DRIVERS. enuf hard take offs, serious engine breaks, and shuddering the car so to speak on take offs and they get worn very fast. horsebeating mine 24/7 they last about 1 month before its unacceptable the amount it tosses the engine. and do your self a big favor and investigate the pcv intake, the very poorly designed stock platic hose is gauntreed to be filthy, leaky, and taking in unfiltered air. i would recomend either making a port for it on the top of the cold air box where clean air is, and constructing an air tight hose for it. or get a $9.99 autozone breather. another thing if her car ever stauls out bad on hot hot days and either stops runing temporarly, or runs like shit it is the tfi ignition module overheating. you can replace it with an msd coil "msd-8227"
to prevent this and get better mileage. they cost right around $40
