    Electrical issues

    I had a few weird C5 issues and found a thread in this section that detailed the locations of the ground point, 17 or so. As recommended, I cleaned up the easy to find ones and all issues cleared; never recurred.

    News: A/C switch lessons - early C4

    Here's what I learned: My '84 is an early production, Z51 car; January. HotRodRoy's is a month later. The A/C in mine has been inop and mostly removed for years as mods were done, then refined. Recently, things went so well, under ZFDoc's care, that I had new A/C components sent to him for...

    Important! High oil pressure does not equate to good oil flow

    A good read, IMO, and perhaps correcting a common misperception.. I always learn something from HotRodRoy, who stopped by for a look and the inevitable chat. One topic was oil viscosity. A professional mechanic pal of mine said they oft use 10W60 synthetic in newer (Teutonic) cars that are...

    Brake Fluid paper, by Chem engr.

    I found this, from another place, to be interesting reading. Brake Fluid Facts, by Steve Wall As a former materials engineering supervisor at a major automotive brake system supplier, I feel both qualified and obligated to inject some material science facts into the murky debate about DOT 5...

    New member question

    Welcome. You found, arguably the nicest group of cars guys on any forum. An OP should move this post to the C3 forum, where there may be more attention and answers. As the sound varies with RPM it's likely related to the tach. AFAIK, you could unscrew the tach drive from the distributor and...

    Weird fuel pressure (zero) loss

    Zero fuel pressure - fixed Finally; the engine all ready to fire. It rotated well and acted like it wished to run... no start.. CRAP! Someone is getting weary of this project, accentuated by the humid heat wave. The first suspect, after checking the fuse, is the relay, having caused...
