    Question: 77 350 doesn't haveany spark

    This car sat in a garage for several years before being driven last fall. The car has a Motion 350 with a 5-speed manual transmission. The engine was running without any problem until the spring of 2012. There is plenty of fuel pumping into the Holley carb and there is 12V to the...

    ESPN3 Coverage of ALMS...

    I am not sure that I like the move of ALMS coverage to ESPN3.com. Previously, when it was on SPEED, the races were listed in the paper like USAToday as being on TV. After the race, the results were also covered even if it was only 1 or 2 sentences. Now that the races are on ESPN3.com, they are...

    Question about Radio Knobs

    I have the in-dash 6-disc player (US9) and was wondering if anyone knows if the chrome trim knobs from the 2008 US9 radio will fit a 2006 US9 radio. According to the parts desk at the local dealer the catalog states 2008 only but of course does not say why. Same thing with the 2009 knobs. I...

    C5/C6 Manual Shifter Assembly Question...

    I just want to confirm that the manual shifter assemblies for the C5 and C6 are interchangable. Except for the shift knobs of course. I mean the entire assembly not just the shift rod that you get when you purchase a short throw shifter. My plan is to buy an MGW short throw shifter and put it...

    1-4 Skip-Shift Question

    I removed #10 fuse in the fuse box to disable the skip-shift solenoid. Well, a check engine light comes on. I replaced the fuse and cleared the code, P0803 BTW, and all is normal again. Why does a check engine light come on when the skip-shift is not emissions related and certainly won't do...

    Can't find it in the service manual...

    I got a CEL today triggered by a P0455 code. The gas cap was on the verge of breaking and finally gave up the ghost. It has already been fixed and the code cleared. And BTW, it only took about 10 minutes to get it fixed under warranty at the dealer. They didn't even have to pull it into the...

    Counter Act Anti Rust Device

    http://www.counteractrust.com/ I saw this device on a car program on Speed after the Spanish Grad Prix. My opinion is that it is snake oil for your car. What is someone else's take on it. It supposedly puts a low current through the body of your car to help repel rust.

    Clutch Fluid Question

    Is the GM recommended "Super DOT-4" brake fluid the same as DOT-4 brake fluid available at a regular car parts place? The service manual says to look in the owner's manual so that was no help. I also looked at the GM recommended stuff at a dealer and all it said was "Super DOT-4." Yes, GM...
