Many C5s have a problem where the top of the turn signal gets cracks in it from the heat of the bulb. When it gets wet water gets in there and breaks the light bulb. Here's a video on how to fix that using JB weld. It's been many years since I've fixed mine and I haven't changed a bulb since I...

Just got a 2001 Coupe (QuickSilver, M4) low miles and I'm discovering it has some mods. I found the K&N filter (replacement for stock), the FlowMaster mufflers and just today I discovered it has the chip mod that keeps the fans (or maybe just one fan) on all the time to let it run cooler. Now...
Grettings everyone. Santa was very good to me this year. After decades of waiting I finally got a 'vette! A 2001 Coupe, auto, with all the options except the magna-ride. It's in really good condition, like new inside and out and I plan to keep it that way. However, it's got an optional muffler...
