    1998 electrical reset

    I changed the battery in my Dad's 1998 a couple months ago. My wife drove it and it died. I jumped it, took it home, changed it out. I barely drove it after that but now that he has it he has noticed an odd thing... The dash resets and it loses some memory. The key fob doesn't work after a...

    Sticky Auto Shifter

    I'm borrowing my Dad's 1998 Pace Car for a couple of weeks. I thought I'd take a bit of time to fix a few minor issues on the car. The shifter is kind of sticky getting it out of Park. Sometimes it is worse than others. It has not to this point ever been totally stuck. Anything I can look...

    The 1st actual Corvette since??

    The new ZR1 is awesome. I've been very vocal for years about the overall blah that the Corvette has become.... until now. GM finally found the set of balls they misplaced however many years ago and built a car that people will lust over for decades to come. Now I just have to go through my...

    (another) Synthetic Oil Question

    This isn't Corvette specific, but I'd like opinions. I just bought a Lincoln Town Car. 1996 with 116k miles. The car seems to be well maintained. I'd like to switch it to synthetic oil. Synthetic is all I even keep around at the house, as I use it in everything. My problem is, do you think...
