    Draining Fuel Tank

    The Gen 2 cars have an opening in the floorpan above the tank to get access to the pump assembly. The port is in the trunk. One disconnects (quick disconnects) the pressure side line and inserts a long length of similar sized tubing fed to a container & let the pump run until the tank is near empty. Otherwise remove the vehicle fuel pump & pick one of these ....and screw on some hose to each end & chuck it into a drill & this little pump will drain the tank.

    Hot Valve Covers, possible steam inside?

    L82 engines might be on the short side but LA1 engines are in abundance.

    If you're going to the actual yards named "pull-a-part" they have gantry cranes for pulling engines/trans and I would just drop the entire subframe assembly out the bottom, then separate the engine/trans from it. Search the board here and you should find some information about dropping the subframe.

    LQ1 exhaust clamp?

    You could replace the clamp, or if not a issue have it welded. If rust is a concern then I would be leery of welding it for later replacement.

    LQ1 exhaust clamp?

    Yeah if you want to get it welded you can certainly get rid of the clamp. Is that some really early production 91 car? Maybe they did it that way for some of the first LQ1 cars. I know my '91 Cutlass was not like that and neither was my '92 Z34.

    LQ1 exhaust clamp?

    It's supposed to be all one piece. Some muffler shop must have put a new muffler or something on at some point. I wouldn't get rid of it because it's clearly been cut and it's just going to leak if you do.

    Exhaust manifold gasket replacement

    I found out what the exhaust leak was, the EGR tube bracket was rusted and broken in half, it also didn't even have a gasket on it, also the EGR valve was installed backwards.

    Draining Fuel Tank

    If the pump works, you could remove the fuel line or the schrader valve and pump out the old fuel by energizing it. If the pump is dead, remove the tank access door and use any number of items to pump the fuel from the tank.

    Hello, friends!

    Welcome to the forum! "Quantic08"? Are you a Marine by chance? I'm retired Navy, so if you are, Semper Fi I currently own four cars with the 3.4 DOHC engine and three of them are running very well. The one that's not running is a car that I bought not running and haven't gotten to it yet. Two of my four cars are 5 speeds too. One is my daily driver and the other one is the one that doesn't run (yet). Again, welcome aboard!

    94 lumina hvac controls not working

    Is it blowing at the defroster and floor? You'd have to check the vacuum line that goes to the vacuum ball in the fender.

    Yeah, this site is pretty good for LQ1 info. Only other place that would be a good source for LQ1 info is the Fiero forum, they like to use the LQ1 in their cars. I've actually seen one of em make a custom intake for their LQ1. All LQ1 cars are rare now. Z34s, GTPs, Cutlass Supremes. It shouldn't but there's always a possibility. Amistydj grenaded his 95 LQ1 engine redlining the hell out of his engine. Of course in his situation he had a bad pulley and that might have made a lot of difference in the situation. I however also had this issue before (timing belt breaking) on my 94 and it survived even though it was hard as hell to time it. TLDR, LQ1s usually don't grenade themselves if they don't interfere however it can always happen.

    Then if the belt breaks on a '93 LQ1 passing six grand the engine will not grenade ? That is really good to know. Since the service records show that the belt was changed fifteen years and 55,000 miles ago, I have been reluctant to take over four and feels like that is where it starts to go. Guess 9.5:1 compression and .390" lift is enough for non-interference. Also the FSM indicate the belt is not "old" until past 70,000 miles. Did get a Delco 1808A sender and will see if that makes the gauge show pressure and not just be a switch.

    6 or 7 years ago now, first Gens used to be everywhere in the yards. Now I'm seeing more and more 3rd gens in there.

    that looks like one nice, well optioned coupe you got there. Can't wait to see it when you are done. I'll keep my eyes open for parts if I get around to any junkyards.
