I also need to go in for an alignment check. I replaced the CV axles, hub assemblies, and a tie rod last winter. I know your supposed to do alignment after tie rod but I was very careful to measure the old and new placement of the nut. Drove straight down the road, figured I did a good job, however now the wheel bearings are starting the make noise again and it's way too soon for that again.
Stopped by work today and one of the guys there has a mechanic he swears by. We gave a call and I told him story from day one.
He came up with three scenarios since this was the second clutch and third with the original bad one.
Simple would be re-flash the computer, he says the computer may still be sending signal for old part number and he said he could do it but suggested a dealer. He says they have options he doesn't.
Other could be bad circulation causing fan to come on now even when I just slow to under 10-15mph. engine could be getting hot. I had also told him that the heat in the rear ceiling only blows hot when I'm at highway speeds other wise blows ambient temp. He said the circulation problem.
So he says other 2 could either be stat or maybe even water pump.
But the temp needle never moves more then one line.
