Power windows and squeaky cables...
I know this was answered, but no one explained how to do it.

My windows go up REAL slow, how do I make it faster, someone said something about greasing the motor or something...any details on how?

Also, I did what swthrt said to make the gears stop squeaking from the 1-2 and 3-2 shift, but, I drove around for 45 minutes and it came back. Sprayed more white grease on it, and the sound is still there.

Any ideas how? It's a GTS, so I can't get to the area swrhrt explained very easily... confused

Optima battery, will take care of your window problem..Normally when ur windows r slow in the rollin its your battery, you could even have autozone recharge it for free..That could work too... grin thumbsup About the tranny, sorry man I dont know sheet about tranny's confused confused

I have a sound system, yes.

I dunno how powerful it is, it's a Toyota stock battery from the dealer.

sounds right to me, do you run your sound system on without running the car alot..that will decrease your battery power over time too...It wont hurt to try and plus its always better to have better than stock, a good battery is def a mod woth paying for... thumbsup thumbsup+

I would go for the optima red top but if you can shell out another $30 go for top of the line, yellow top. thumbsup thumbsup
