Heater Core Backflush

2007 Vibe 1zz, is the top hose on the firewall the core inlet? I checked the temp on both hoses today and the top one was warmer which means the inlet side right?

Thermostats

Summer of 2015 I did some maintenance including a coolant flush, hoses, t-stat. 2007 1.8L 155k km. Picked up the hoses, t-stat and other items at my local CARQUEST. Lately the cabin heat has had a mind of it's own, and I drove home yesterday to find coolant leaking from what appeared to be good look...

Re: What did you do to your Vibe today?

I changed plugs and cleaned the pcv valve today. Couple of days ago she started rough once and has hit 155k km. Decided it was time. I went with the NGK g-power platinum plugs instead of the iridiums. A third the price, supposed a better spark for a shorter lifespan. Only do ~10k km a year so I'm no...

Matrix vs Vibe Window Regulator?

Does anyone know if the Matrix manual crank window regulator will fit the Vibe? 2007 Vibe base, front left (drivers) side.
Rockauto has Matrix manual crank regs but they only list power regs for the Vibe.
Thanks.

Bled the brakes and changed the power steering fluid. I'm really impressed with how well the ATF/acetone mixture works for loosening rusted fittings like the brake bleeders in this case. All four loosened up, had to pull one to blow the channel clear of gunk for it to work. The rubber covers were pr...

I was under the mistaken assumption that there might just be an LED version of the existing bulb that could be easily swapped out, i.e. replace the OEM bulb with an LED counterpart.

Re: LED bulbs for dome & cargo area lights?

My Princess Auto has direct led replacement bulbs for the dome lights. Philips brand $10 each, single diode. Mine were the shorter of the two festooned styles. However, I went a cheaper route and modded 2X3 diode panels ($3) in the fixture. I just made a thread about it here, check it out.

You know you drive a Vibe when you can adjust the heat vents to blast hot air on your hands in the 10 & 2 positions on the steering wheel. I really like that now that it's getting colder out I did this yesterday. It works very well. Now I can stop working on that heated steering wheel swap :lol:

Re: 8" Sub and Amp Installed Under the Passenger Seat of a 2

I didn't know there was as much room under the seat as there appears to be. I've got a couple of different 8" drivers hanging around so that sounds like a good project. I like the idea of the downfiring box.

Did you get any pics of your install yet? How's it sound?
