  2. Hey, the first picture is the speedometer wich is built in now. i want to change to the full digital at the second picture. The Cables and the connector are different. this is my problem.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Welcome to the site! I'm not that familiar with the Regal clusters. I know it is possible to swap these over to the digital cluster. Does your current cluster have a tachometer? When I did this for my 1994 Cutlass Supreme, I made an adapter so I could plug in my digital cluster. You could also put the connectors in the correct spot with the correct connector for the digital cluster. This thread may have helpful information:
  5. Hey my Name ist Christian from Germany. I have an Chrysler 300c and now i bought a Buick Regal from 1990. I want to Change the Speedometer. From the old one to the füll digital on. From 25089061 to 25089058. These are the original article Numbers. Does anybody have wiring diagrams or a plan how i can match this? Because the connectors and the wiring ist different.

    Steering gear differences

    Amazon shows that number as "not compatible" with my '92 Lumina. Whether that's "real" or not is up for debate. It may fit, but not be specified as "correct" by GM. I know that GM had more than one steering rack for the first-generations, with the "sporty" cars having a faster steering-gear ratio, and perhaps stiffer "feel". The sporty steering gear is hard to find and was very expensive.

    LS4 swap begins

    This is actually after I've consolidated all the LS4 and Z34 wiring. There are no extra wires left in this picture. It really looks worse than it is. Theres really only a few main bundles to sort through, otherwise the rest are categorized based on component/ sensor, etc. with labels at the PCM end so I can keep track of everything. The foreground bundle is the original Z34 front end harness that has the battery cable, ground cable(s), fan wiring, and any accessories on the drivers side of the engine bay, so it'll be returned back to the bottom of the radiator support. I had to take it apart to rid it of the old 4T65 wiring and some other bits.

    96 GP GTP valve body/transmission

    Yeah same here. Hate to let the car go as is but not something I'm ready to put that kind of money on unfortunately. Thanks for the help. For now we will try new filter and fluid with some Lucas additive in it. I'll return the sonnax valve body.

    96 GP GTP valve body/transmission

    Yeah, well, somewhere north of $2500 for a rebuilt trans doesn't make me fell all warm & fuzzy. If you were able to find a good LOW mileage 4T60-E, but when it comes to salvage yards one doesn't know what the history is of the car it came out of.

    96 GP GTP valve body/transmission

    Thanks 55 trucker. Soo no matter which way this pie is sliced... trans has to come out. And at 150k miles ought just be rebuilt if it's getting pulled...

    96 GP GTP valve body/transmission

    I think you're barking up the wrong tree...... 1870 is a slipping TCC clutch situation, may or may not be in the valve body, the solenoid is not in the pan, it's in behind the rear trans cover. The trans has to come out to get that cover off. Now the reason why the clutch is slipping could be low pressure to the converter lock up shaft (diagnose the source), the clutch plate has worn off the friction material so it won't remain solid in place against the inside of the turbine impeller housing, the clutch plate bearing assembly is failing or the TCC solenoid is failing.

    I’ve replaced the valve body on a 04 explorer. It did not fix the problem I had but was not a hard job really. The valve body pistons on my exploder were cracked and would leak down causing the bands to lose tension but not likely what you’re dealing with but I read it could be… The valve body replacement is Messy… you need to be very clean as you go. Keep a piece of cardboard nearby and draw the bolt locations on it and stick em in so they all go back in the right spot. Have a 1/4” drive torque wrench available. you might want to do more troubleshooting first though. Could simply need a fluid change or be other things. The valve body being bad is a culprit so I wouldn’t send it back yet. Read up if you can’t figure out a likely cause before you open it up, maybe get some more parts for a ‘while you’re in there’ scenario. I hate doing shit twice. The TCC solenoid and the TCC itself is also a culprit. https://obd2pros.com/dtc-codes/p1870/ https://www.motor.com/magazine-summary/deciphering-gm-transmission-dtc-p1870-june-2006/ looks like YouTube has some diagnostic vids as well. good luck man.
  15. P1870 cel code. I had read it usually has to do with the solenoids in the valve body. I thought I had read it could be changed fairly easy after dropping trans pan. So I bought a reman'ed sonnax upgraded valve body and of course after purchase I am now worried I misread/forgot and I'm looking for info for how big of a job it is to replace. Rough description of job and hours to complete a valve body swap is what I'm after. Or if I'm better off just returning the part to rock auto. Also if I'm way off course on that code let me know. Issue is car seems to pulse similar to a cylinder misfire when in 4th gear low rpm under a load. Apply throttle, downshift to 3rd and usually 3k rpms or more and no problem and it downshifts smooth. But to try to hold 4th at lower rpms under a load is has that issue. Thanks in advance for helping my stupidity.
  16. Actually I know it's been done. Was even told it's very straitforward (?). My 98 GP GT's tranny is long for this world. It started shifting hard, changed the fluid (Castrol Transmax) and filter, but it still misbehaves (but not all the time). Contemplatimg changing it again with Delco Type III-h, as it's the most (current) official fluid you can get. Maybe even throwing in the Lucas. Don't have high hopes though. So I want to utilize the motor. Runs great, 188k. The 3400 in the Venture is toast. Both cats use the same tranny as I understand it. Would love to get feedback, possibly or likely issues, etc. I've never swapped a motor but it isn't brain surgery exactly.

    1996 Grand Prix starter swap to 97+ PMGR?

    I just installed one in my 95 Monte 3 4. New AC Delco part number 337-1030. About $120 on Amazon.

    Oil Catch Can on a 3.1L V6 (3100 SFI)

    That's exactly why I need one, lol You are better off with just a panel filter. Scratch the FWI, probably wouldn't work with that engine.

    Oil Catch Can on a 3.1L V6 (3100 SFI)

    WHY would you WANT a "catch can"? Folks put "catch cans" on engines that have excess blow-by (worn-out) or have improperly-baffled PCV valves (generally from using cheap-junk aftermarket valve covers.) I have no faith in aftermarket "cold air intakes". Mostly, they're cheap junk designed primarily to separate perfectly good dollars from the wallets of folks who don't know better. In actual cold weather, they can lead to throttle-body icing and poor warm-up. My advice is to save your money, leave the PCV and air-intake system alone. Painting and re-gasketing the intake manifold shouldn't cause any problems, though.
  20. I put a GXP rack in my 98 GS, but I'm not sure how they fit in the 1st gens.

    Steering gear differences

    on all my machines FE3 suspension, is on sale from 2007 GTP 19330425 does it make sense to buy it in stock or not?
  22. what is the difference between mechanisms on different generations?
  23. I have a 2004 3.4 Impala bad tranny I have a 2005 3.4 Impala that’s wrecked. Can I put the 2005 tranny in the 2004. Both are 4t65E Thanks

    Oil Catch Can on a 3.1L V6 (3100 SFI)

    ZZP Fender Well intake is the best one. Sure, you can put a catch can in. I have a simple one in my 3.4X, but I would be interested in seeing some other setups myself.

    Oil Catch Can on a 3.1L V6 (3100 SFI)

    Hi! I just bought a 2000 Buick Century Limited 3.1L SFI. I wanted to do 3 things first on it. Clean and paint intake manifold black(fresh gaskets), cold air intake, and an oil catch can. My questions are what is the best aftermarket CAI for these engines? I only see Weapon-R and ZZP’s 3800 CAI really. Lastly, is the 3100 able to have a oil catch can set up? Thanks

    Front strut problems

    I forgot--the "Official, Genuine GM" W-body service tool set includes the Kent-Moore versions of the strut-cartridge tools.

    1997 olds cut sup 3800 swap

    From somebody who has a 3800 swapped cutlass, this swap is great, although I am not sure I would do it if the motor was running perfectly (mine wasn't). I would ballpark $2-3,000 for the swap depending on what you can buy the motor/trans and some of the swap parts for and what kind of preventative maintenance you want to do or performance mods you want to do. Most of the swap parts can (and I would say should) be bought brand new) Here is a list of stuff you'll need. 3800 swap w-body From 98/99 Monte Carlo z34/lumina LTZ with 3.8NA Needed power steering lines Heater hoses Exhaust downpipe (or have one made) Best to have but not mandatory engine bay wiring harness Cv shafts From gtp donor motor Trans Rad Rad hoses Motor mounts Cv shafts PCM Engine bay wiring harness Notes: cv shafts if using an HD trans you need to use the gtp passenger inner with the 1st Gen shaft and outer joint. If you get them from the Monte you can use the stock Monte drivers side. Wiring: if you can’t find the Monte Carlo harness you can use the gtp harnesss, and merge it into the 1st Gen c100 connector. With the Monte harness it comes with the c100 you just need to move a few pins around and overall much easier but can be hard to find. You’ll need the GM service manuals for your donor harness and your original car to match the c100 connector. If using a Monte harness you will probably want to add the BBV wiring. PCM: you will need to get the vats/security removed(it’s possible it won’t be an issue but be aware it probably will be) and probably want to remove a few other codes.
