    3.1 Plugs and Wires

    Nate did that iirc, I just used a combo of extensions (on the LQ1), takes 10 minutes

    Not sure. Since your car is a low mileage one, maybe that's why it still retains it. My 89 International parts car is relatively a low mileage car too. I stole it for the 91 car.

    Thats interesting. It was on there when I bought it. Lol Did they go bad often?

    A really bad week for International coupes getting junked. This was posted on FB, a Georgia car. I think it's odd this car doesn't have the trunk luggage rack or fog lights.

    10-4. I lucked out and took this one from the 89 International 3.1 parts car and put it on the 91 car. I found this NOS one and bought it for the 93 STE. I don't know if they are rare pieces but I always look for them in the yards. Looks like the STE has an aftermarket one. Yuck.

    Yeah, they used it until at least '93. Most have failed over the years and have been tossed in the trash. The later W car radiator caps (PN 10409635) fit the old stuff, and while they're uglier, they tend to hold up better.

    I believe the radiator cap is the original one. Not very common. I also believe they used the same cap on the LQ1's. At least for the 91 model years.

    That's good news! I have a ton of extensions and swivels. Along with my own tools, I inherited a whole bunch of other tools recently.

    With the right swivels and extensions (particularly wobbly extensions) you can get in there without doing it.

    3.1 Plugs and Wires

    I'm going to look thru some old threads and see what I need to do for mine. I'm going to change out the wires/plugs when I do the LIM gaskets. I really don't want to bend the metal lip.

    3.1 Plugs and Wires

    That's a trick for the LQ1, I don't see why it would ever be required on a 2.8/3.1. You don't have to cut it either, just bend it slightly out of the way and then bend it back.
  13. Hello my friend!

    3.1 Plugs and Wires

    Yup. Memphisman brought this to my attention and I checked on my car. No notches so I'm assuming my hasn't been subjected to that.

    3.1 Plugs and Wires

    Isn't there something about putting a couple notches in the front of the cowl that the seal hides to get useful trajectory with a bunch of extensions on a 60*?

    Stupid auto correct. Lol
  18. digitaloutsider

    3.1 Plugs and Wires

    That's exactly how I used to do it on 3.1s.

    I usually ask Manuel as well, but he doesn’t always answer right away
  20. jiggity76

    3.1 Plugs and Wires

    Nice, I don't know if I've heard of anyone doing it this way but whatever is easiest. I might try this on my 96 CS 3.1 car. Thanks!
  21. K&R

    3.1 Plugs and Wires

    I don’t know if anyone else has done this but thought I would share just in case. One way to change the plugs and wires on the 3.1 motor is to take just the alternator off and you have full access to the rear plugs. No rotating the engine as explained in the factory Manuel and no ratchet straps, which I’ve seen people do.

    tilt steering issues

    yea I already tried that and its still the same its jammed so I'll just have to remove the column to access behind the bowl and go from there cause there's no other way to get behind the the cylinder from the outside the bowl and there's no working room.

    Thanks so much! I'll owe you big, well more than I already do. I look for Aztek stuff all the time for you but I'm just not having any luck. I would love to be the guy that finds a rare item for you or something that you can cross off your list. I printed it out and take it with me every time I go to the yards.

    Yep, that's the Z34 they have. I will try to get down there this weekend maybe.

    Excellent! Yeah, I guess I have extra holders but I need the bracket that bolts to the cam cover there. Pretty sure the STE is missing it. It's funny, little things like this make a big difference in the appearance of a motor. Is that the actual pic of the car then? If so, I could use the little hose clamps coming out of the vacuum lines that go into the plenum/air box. Extra 4 piece cam covers would be awesome too. Thank you! My STE looks like it has a lot of the original hose clamps on it thank goodness! Those front wires are incorrect and just thrown everywhere. It's driving me crazy! And the dirtiness! Those bolts for the windshield washer fluid are also incorrect.

    Saw a cupholder this weekend that wasn't broken but wasn't mint, the little rubber flaps were falling apart. They could probably be made. I might have a couple of those plug wire holders but I'll have to check those DOHC cars at the junkyard.I know that Lumina has one if no one has broken it.
