    Odd cruise control behavior

    Not sure I've ever tried it, but I'd expect the cruise to work in Overdrive, or Drive. (4th and 3rd) Every time the cruise has been goofy on my 92/93 Luminas, it's due to a broken vacuum hose. The tubing gets brittle, cracks, and then the cruise system doesn't have vacuum to run the actuator. Both cars have multiple splices to the vacuum tubing.
  3. I don't; should have taken one. Planning on grabbing a used one Friday
  4. Are you talking about the turn signal canceling cam? For the 94-96 GP's?
  5. Also, the horn works, but the steering wheel controls don't
  6. They're out there, but $150 and I don't even know if that's the issue. I did tear it apart and it looked okay, I even wound it like it said on the clock spring. I wanted to do it in the relative comfort of my garage so I knew what all I needed to do to get it out and what tools I'll need. I had the battery unplugged for over an hour and it came right back on.
  7. I did some searching, and didn't come up with much. The one's that I see on Ebay look way over priced. I think your best would be to grab several at the yard for the price of one on ebay. Know that I know these aren't available anymore I should try to get an extra one just in case.
  8. I'm going to look at it tonight, but I'm assuming I broke the wire when I had the steering rack disconnected. The dang steering piece fell out after I had unattached it from the rack and I'm assuming the wheel turned and broke it and I'm going to need a clock spring. I've never had the wheel turn on me in the millions of times I've had the subframe out of W's. The wheel was still straight, so I didn't think it turned, but after about 10 minutes of driving, the air bag light came on and it comes back right away after clearing the codes. Where is the best place to get a clock spring? They're not the easiest thing to find. I'll probably just grab a couple at the junk yard. There are a lot of cheap ones on eBay for other cars, but I can't find any for the GP.

    Odd cruise control behavior

    Yes a sloppy shifter will not allow your cruise control to work. I have dealt with this issue before, never on a w-body, but with my 2006 Silverado. You can be in D, but if something isn't aligned correctly and the car thinks you are in N or 3rd your cruise control will not work. I had to adjust the linkage down by the transmission. Once I got that right my cruise control worked again. Also it is nice have the shift indicator in the correct spot as well.

    Odd cruise control behavior

    So yesterday, I had a little epiphany about my sometimey cruise control. Could it possibly be related to my sloppy shifter? I've complained before about the shift indicator on my '95 Vert being wildly inaccurate to the point of having to literally hunt for the proper gear. When the transmission is in reverse, nothing is lit on the indicator. In neutral, the N may or may not be lit. In drive, the N is usually lit. I third, the D is usually lit. Often, I'll be going down the road and notice the car is in third (looks like it's in drive) and have to give the shifter a little bump forward to get it into drive. Yesterday, the cruise control hadn't been working but then I noticed it was in the wrong gear and bumped it into drive. A little while later, I turned the cruise control switch off and back on, then tried the cruise again and low and behold, it worked. I'm not sure what to make of all that but it seems there could be a connection.
  11. is this still available? I am interested in the whole car. silveradovictory@gmail.com
  12. Welcome new dude. The other end comes off same way as the first one did, same size flare nut. You might have to rock the engine forward to get better access to the rack and pinion end of the PS line. Its easier than it sounds if you`ve never done it and never take Schurkey personally but always take him seriously. This is the 2 book set you`d want to have for your car, same as my 1995 Cutlass Supreme. https://www.ebay.com/itm/164429913777?msclkid=8c2c2405d58011ec834278d1e4700fe9&fclid=8c2c2405-d580-11ec-8342-78d1e4700fe9&p=67ff76a32c165840e2c7e8bb6099e0221c03cbc22b7288fab9372b88e63aeb40JmdvaWQ9NTgyMTg2MDM0MzAmaW10cz0xNjUyNzUwODYzJm1rdD1lbi11cyZwdmRpZD0xMjg4Mzk

    3800 swap stumbling under load

    After further thought I decided against cutting an access panel. The design of this sending unit has hard lines that wrap down around the tank and I think the hole would have to be huge to be of any use and I don't want that.
  14. What does the Genuine GM service manual say? I get mine on eBay, used, at advantageous prices. I have a couple service manuals on CD--DVD, but I'm less enthused about those. I like paper copies.

    Make VERY sure that the hole you cut gets reinforced, and sealed. "I" would absolutely NOT cut an access hole. The last thing I want is to be trapped in an upside-down car after a collision that ruptured the gas tank, with gasoline pouring into the passenger compartment through some kludged access hole that isn't liquid-tight. Bad enough to be unconscious as you burn alive, but worse would be to be conscious, paralyzed, and having to watch the family burn, too.

    Hi Newbe here 89 regal

    These have 90-94 on it, does your `89s look like one of these? https://www.ebay.com/itm/313278753340 https://www.ebay.com/itm/373855339026?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200818143230%26meid%3D614f269cd3f6421b8c361271a065d33a%26pid%3D101224%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D5%26sd%3D313278753340%26itm%3D373855339026%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DDefaultOrganicWeb%26brand%3DBuick&_trksid=p2047675.c101224.m-1 Or perhaps these guys can fix the one you have, might be worth a call or email. https://www.switchdoctor.net/buick-window-switch/

    Dropped the tank today. Found some pretty nasty stuff. The seal had definitely slipped out of place. The strainer was so clogged it basically imploded under the force of the pump. There's less than 4000 miles on this pump and strainer. The gas in the tank looks awful cloudy! The entire inner surface of the tank is covered in rust. I'm replacing everything. New fuel filler neck, tank, sending unit, AEM pump, all hoses. I'll also flush out the fuel lines and maybe pull the fuel rails as well. Maybe bench-test the injectors to see if they're clogged up too. And then to make fuel jobs easier in the future, I'm considering cutting an access panel behind the rear seat. I picked up the cover plate from another w-body at the junkyard years ago, it looks like a pretty good fit. Obviously the picture is just to check the size, that panel itself will be screwed in from inside! Has anybody done that before? Is it a terrible idea? I don't know how I'll even cut it. I have a drill to get started, but don't really have any kind of cutting tools for metal.

    Hello Mike! Glad to see you made it here to our Forum. I feel bad now as I probably should have invited you sooner.

    Awesome GTP! I keep telling myself, someday I'll pick up another 5 speed.

    Welcome to the site. Very nice looking GTP you have.

    Nice, how do you like the manual transmission? I have a '96 SE so the 5 speed was never an option for that specific car but I did pick up a getrag 284 last month to do the swap.
