    Out of the Vette Game

    I have lusted after the 5th gen Camaros since they came out. About a month ago I traded in my Vette for a 2010 Inferno Orange Metallic SS with the manual 6 speed. The Vette needed shocks, a new radiator and A/C repair. Found out I could insure the Camaro full coverage for about 1/2 of what the...

    Brakes - No more Pulsing, but...

    I have had a brake pulsing issue for a while now and finally decided to change out the rotors. Replaced rotors and pads all around this weekend and the pulsing is gone. But, the passenger front caliper would not bleed properly. Even with full brake pedal pressure, the brake fluid would only ooze...

    Loss of Vaccuum Assist

    Lost vacuum assist on my 89 coupe. Brakes are still functional but it takes a lot of leg power. As soon as I depress the brake pedal I can hear a noise (air). Easier to hear inside the car. From the engine bay I can hear it and it sounds like it's coming from inside the vacuum booster...

    Hard Start/No Start Epilogue

    I took her out Saturday for a 110 mile road trip. Everythng went well. The car starts quickly and idles perfectly. Runs like a champ; although I don't notice any improvement in performance. It was great fun having her back on the road. I thought a wrap up was in order so where we go! It...

    Hard Start/No Start Troubleshooting Log

    I took my 89 out for a drive the day after I returned from vacation last week. Did about 40 minutes of highway driving then stopped at Walmart. Drove from Walmart to the Grocery store. Tried to leave. The car fired but then shut down after a few seconds. Had her towed home. :mad By the...

    Clunk! Clunk!

    What started out as feeling a pulsing of the brake peddle as I came to a complete stop is now a definite clunk, clunk, clunk. So I don't think it is a rotor runout issue any more. Wheel bearing? U joint? Put it up on stands and push/pull on the wheel? Look around under the back? ;help...

    Rattle and Hum!

    Something is going out or has worked itself loose. I have a rattle at idle which turns into a pretty good vibration from about 1200 to 1800 rpm. Disappears above 1800. Car runs perfect. Sounds like one of the accessories when I lift the hood but a can't seem to isolate it. :confused Any...

    I just bought a set of chrome ZR-1 wheels with Goodyear GS-Cs. Man, those things really pop!:D My question though is about louvers for the rear hatch. I searched the site and have done a search on the WEB and come up with very little. Anybody have any info on a manufacturer/supplier? Who...

    Radiator Help - Am I screwed?

    I cleaned out the space between the radiator and A/C condeser this weekend. Leaves, pine needles, cigaratte butts, paper etc. Relatively easy job. Only problem was that the bottom auto trans connection was frozen. I was extremely careful with it because I intended to drive the car to Phoenix...

    @#$*$ Broken Bolts!!!

    Decided to service the 700-R4 this Saturday. A relatively simple but messy job, right? Nope! Three of the sixteen bolts for the transmission pan sheared off. I was able to drill through all three but broke the extractor off flush with the top of the first bolt. Blue air. :mad Quit for the...
