    Lightbulb hissing headlight?!

    Of all the threads on headlights I haven't seen anything on the headlight hissing.. My passenger side headlight comes up just slightly slower and when I close it there is a loud hiss of air right as it closes, the sounds only coming from that side.. Like an airbag releasing air.. Does this mean I'm screwed?

    No vac lines there. Sounds like the headlight motor is still spinning and on the way out or the gear is starting to trip

    haha....good as long as you checked that. Actually go ahead and drain the oil out of the block and let her run for a few mins. when you hear a loud grinding sound, eh you know the problem will be fixed. Your from Tempe? im in Yuma
