re: Any good "no kill" shelters in the Lafayette or BR area? - eitek1
[quote]Yes, it's a white female catahoula[/quote] Like I said, she MAY have other complications but it's not 100%. The fact that she is blind might make her easier to handle and make a pretty good pet. For the record, blindness in a dog can be almost imperceptible in a dog if they have anothe...

re: Any good "no kill" shelters in the Lafayette or BR area? - eitek1

Along with blindness usually comes liver problems. My information is anecdotal but I had Catahoulas for 20 years (las...

re: Barrett-Jackson car auction in Scottsdale this week - eitek1
I helped restore a 69 L88 exactly like that. Same color which was lemans blue. It came with a factory 4 speed transmission and a 3 2bbl (six pack) carb set up. It might be the same car, who knows... The one I helped restore was pulled out of the woods. It had been stolen twice. The second time it wa...

re: Strange "boom" noises uptown NOLA - eitek1
I live off of Esplanade and I've heard them before. I told my wife sounds like someone is shooting artillery off somewhere. It'll go on for a few minutes and EVERY SINGLE TIME when I go outside to listen I can't hear it. The first time it happened the guy that lives behind me came outside at the sam...

re: Any good Volvo mechanics in baton rouge? - eitek1
Based on what I've looked at it's got a high probability of being a vacuum hose. Also, it looks like Volvo was kind enough to put a sticker with a diagram of the vacuum hose routing somewhere under the hood of your car. Once the weather clears go pop your hood and find the sticker. Once you fin...

Honestly, with the new systems on cars that can effectively self diagnose and internet forums you should try this yourself. Buy this [link=(https://www.amazon.com/BAFX-Products-34t5-Bluetooth-Android/dp/B005NLQAHS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1483710877&sr=8-3&keywords=bluetooth+obd2+adapter)]OBD2 ada...

re: Is there a car problem that causes steering wheel slack after driving awhile? - eitek1
If that's the case your tie rod ends are probably worn out. My guess is you have well over 100k miles on the car, right? Tie rod ends are relatively cheap and pretty easy to change. Until you get this fixed you probably won't be able to align the front end. What kind of car is it? For refe...
