    Long crank

    Is the fuel pump the same for all years? I noticed the OP has a 2002 and I have a 2005, wondering if it is going extinct too.

    Not to derail the thread, but there was enough discussion about the margins of science that it reminded me of my favorite crazy idea that is just sciencey enough to make it fun https://m.phys.org/news/2013-07-chimp-pig-hybrid-humans.html
