Early Morning Thread 2/1/15: Just One Meal, KC [krakatoa]

Heading to K.C. Mo. later today.

First time there. If you could only eat one meal in K.C., or between there and the airport, what would it be?

That, and other things, on this morning's open thread.

2 Good Morning Morons. Today is Sunday, February 01, 2015. On this day in 1978 director Roman Polanski skipped bail and fled the United States to France after pleading guilty to charges of having sex with a 13-year-old girl. To this day France refuses to extradite this child rapist.

Morning horde,

We replaced my wife's car this last week with a 2001 Volvo V70 wagon. It's in very good condition, everything works except a couple small things we've already purchased the replacement parts for. Less than 60k miles on rebuilt transmission, and engine. New brakes all around. Body is in great shape....just one ding where the previous, (and original), owner had a run in with one of Bambi's family members. No rust. Even the interior is in great shape.

It's got a turbo charged V5....that aint a typo.

One problem I'm working on though is a very rough idle, especially as the engine warms up. After much research, it appears the ETM is wonked up. Now, they can be replaced, though the part is a tad spendy, and we'll eventually do this. In the meantime though, I intend to give it a thorough cleaning.

Anyone out there have experience with this? The procedure looks simple enough.....some swear by it, others claim it's a waste of time. Investing an hour or so of my time on the cheap n' easy fix seems a good way to start. Questions......anything in particular to look out for, or give extra attention too?

The ETM doesn't even have to be fully removed to be cleaned, and I intend to be very careful with the use of solvents, having seen some strong solvents actually dissolve plastic parts, sealing surfaces, and gaskets.

Thanks in advance for any helpful pointers, or tips!

They also sheltered Ira Einhorn for about 30 years as well. Leftist professor at Penn who hacked up his wife in '77 and then split to France. I think he was finally extradited a few years ago? Lemme see . . .

Yes. And he's got the perfect leftist pedigree. Rotting in jail as we speak.

If the common denominator is meat applied to fire, how bad could it be?

But the question is how good can it get, and so the debate rages. Like how many licks to the center of the Tootsie Pope (the world may never know . . .) ?

I thought so, too. And the answer is: inline-5 FTW!

Could be SW is thinking of the ECM, dat ol' module what controls the engine. Just thinking about one -- on any car -- makes me lust for mechanical distributors.

The problem with new cars is that they have too many parts that can't be repaired with a hammer or adjustable wrench.

Posted by: MrScribbler at February 01, 2015 08:20 AM (P8YHq)

56 Depends on what kind of food:
- Breakfast I'd recommend Biscuit Topper at The Corner Café in Riverside. It's just off of I-29 south of the airport.
- Lunch or Dinner: BBQ, there are tons of places. I like Jack Stack BBQ downtown near Union Station. There are also several good Mexican joints on Southwest Blvd.

I had to get electronic fuel sensors replaced in order to pass inspection, as it was triggering the 'Check Engine' light. The part wasn't all that expensive, it was the labor cost of the mechanic removing the back seat to get to it.

The car has three odometer settings, so I don't really need the gas gauge to work.

The funny part is how reflexively and immediately he ties "American Values" to identity politics, first citing that old racist LBJ and the Civil Rights Act he was forced into signing, then going to Ghey Marriage and War on Wimmin issues as the "central issues" of American politics. Forget about looming bankruptcy, the advance of Satans armies and the Dark Ages of civilization, forget about wars breaking out all over-- uh, uh.. America has a pay equity gap!

Actually, I remember being about 15 or 16 and helping my dad replace the ball joints on the 1970 Plymouth Fury II. The car was parked on a Brooklyn side street, with cars and the occasional low life drifting past.

Aside from the atmosphere, I think the sophistication of today's cars all but eliminates the ability for the average guy to do this kind of thing by himself.

Oops. I meant to type 'inline'. That'll teach me to post anything before coffee.

The ETM is an electrically actuated throttle body, with throttle position sensor bolted on the side. ETM stands for "Electronic Throttle Module". A bit more research....Volvo has a service bulletin out on this problem, and the fix is to clean the ETM. Some mechanics have suggested the part is faulty, and Volvo was running out the 100k mile warranty clock so they wouldn't have to foot the bill for replacements.

The prequel to that story:

Dad's first car was the immortal 1961 Chevy Impala. Round about 1973, he was all set to buy one of the first Toyota models, but momma insisted on a big car for the safety. So he got the Fury. IIRC, it had this gigantic alarm in it because the previous owner sold cigarettes (not sure if he was a smuggler!).

At any rate, the car got less than 10 miles a gallon on a good day. And wouldn't you know it; a week after he got the car, they Yom Kippur War broke out and gas went from $.30 a gallon to $.75 a gallon. He was furious (no pun).

Before Macpherson and his damned Struts, unloading those big front suspension springs was (arguably I guess) the single most dangerous process in auto mechanics. Not just compressor bolts and shackles, but big ol log chains, and sometimes a come-along or block'n'tackle. And torsion bars, O Jesus.

That's a nice zippy engine! It's a low-pressure turbo, and the R series just bumps up the pressure to get more power. It will run forever, but make sure you keep the oil full, and let it idle for a few seconds before you shut down. The turbo is oil cooled and letting it idle lets it spin down while lubricated and cooled.

Where are you located?

Who says I was joking? Ironically enough, I picked up welding at college as part of a metal sculpting class.

On the first day of class my instructor, the great Murray Israel gave this great long passionate monologue about the beauty/flexibility of the material and the masters like Picasso, Lipshitz and Moore etc. etc. " . . . and if nothing else, at the end of this course, you'll be able to get a job at an auto body repair shop."

Learn a trade and get the degree through JC or night school (take out no debt) is what I preach. You can still feed yourself (carpentry, plumbing, electrician, etc...) if your studied university field is in a downturn.

North East PA.
We really like the car....and the engine is zippy, and packs a nice punch. I'll make sure my wife knows to idle the engine for a bit before shutting it off....this is the first turbo she's had, and I know this wouldn't occur to her.
If it's not snowing when she gets back from church, I'll take a stab at cleaning the ETM. If it is snowing, (likely), I'll be using a sawzall to cut out some under sink soldered copper pipes in the bathroom, in order to replace the faucet.
Also, it's been a year since I've reinstalled Vista 64 on my computer. Definitely time to look into that.

159 Savoy Grill is closed, burnt down last summer.

Standard BBQ joints: Gates, Arthur Bryants, Jack Stack, the fka Oklahoma Joes (Now Joe's KC). All have multiple locations.

Good smaller BBQ spots: LC's (east KC), Woodshed, Slaps (Both Kansas City KS), Smokin' Guns (north KC)

Other places to investigate: Jazz (cajun), Happy Gillis, Genessee Royale, Succotash, Westside Local, Extra Virgin (hipster American), Plaza III, Golden Ox, Majestic and Jess & Jim's (steak), Garozzos (italian, downtown location is best)

The airport is 20 miles north of downtown and the northland is mostly a culinary wasteland. Sorry. Most of the above places are convenient to downtown.

Posted by: KCnative at February 01, 2015 03:28 PM (1PVUR)

160 KCnative all great suggestions.

For smaller BBQ places add Zarda (South Blue Springs) but my new fav is Plowboys (South South Blue Springs). They started as a competition BBQ team.

I would add Cascone's in Southern Northland and Ixtapa off of Barry Road by the airport.

Also Hereford House, Smokestack BBQ, Bo Ling's, and Swaggat all in Zona Rosa by the airport.

Overland Park/Olathe is starting to see some really good resteraunts as well.
