    Ok folks..... I've got a dilemma. We start with one, simple, non-computerized 1983 Dodge D-150 pickup with the bullet proof 225 Slant Six. This is about as simple as a vehicle gets and it's all right there with easy access. Yesterday.... ran just fine. Wired in a new 2500lb capacity small...

    Convertible Wind Deflector??

    The wife spent this summer whining about her hair and the wind in her ear while running at hwy speeds with the top down. Since It's far cheaper to look for some type of wind/air deflector than it is to replace the wife (and watch the lawyers saw my Vert in half along with the boat and all my...

    Water Spots..... or worse

    If there are links to previous responses to this query, please point me in the right direction. My beautiful (new) 2002 Torch Red Vert was in pristine condition when I bought her. The paint was flawless without a blemish in the paint/clear anywhere. So I happily take a 3000 mi road trip to...

    Sirius/XM add-on??

    Can anyone tell me if the Delco/Bose radio with the tape player and 12 disk CD changer that comes in a 2002 C5 is capable of having the (GM version) of an installed Sirius/XM radio module installed as part of the "AUX" button on the head unit? My 2003 Cadillac DTS could be upgraded as was my...

    RIP - Nutmegbronze

    To all my L81 registry pals, I have to sadly admit that the special primer 1981 was upgraded to a 2002 Torch Red 6-spd Convertible. The old '81 served me well and for many, many years of trouble free driving joy. But time and wear started to take its toll and it was time to upgrade especially...

    Has anybody ever seen the heater soleniod valve assembly leak? Not the hoses attached to it; but rather between the circular membrane device and the block it is attached to.

    Codes

    Well I've searched high and low through the reams of my documentation and I have lost/misplaced by list of "Check Engine" codes and which two pins to short to dump the codes. Any help w/b greatly appreciated. I suspect an O2 sensor (since that's about all that's left of the Emissions stuff I...

    Micro Machines

    Well it's about time I feel into something other than ****! While going through my attic in preparation of getting my house ready to sell this spring I happened upon an unfamiliar box; unmarked. Since I (wisely) went through my sons toys eons ago and bagged up every Star Trek, Star Wars...

    No More Buying Power Window Switches

    Fellow Shark pilots, I made a marvelous discovery today. After crapping out my third Power Window switch I decided to take one apart to see what was making it fail. Lo and behold....... the only thing that is failing is the small circuit card in the switch is getting loose. Once the board...
