    Restoration project...

    So I was reminded on Facebook of this photo of my Cutlass from 2 years ago today... just to show how far It really has come in those 2 years... to give you an idea, I was standing in almost the same spot in the 2nd photo I added to the initial post.

    Now to go through the brakes and get new tires. passenger side rear brake gets the first inspection. It almost definitely needs a new caliper.

    Rear convertible window weather stripping

    I see that the Camaro weather strips are specific to the driver and passenger doors. Your one post stated that you cut off from the pillar edge while leaving the back of the original end. I assume that means that it is important to purchase the Camaro drivers side for the Olds driver side and the same for the passenger side applications. Am I correct? Also, is there a quality difference between Camaro Central and 1A Auto? Thanks, Jonathan Camaro Central (pair) $69.95 1A Auto (pair) $99.95 1A Auto (individual sides) $64.95

    Nope, either we get the door jamb sticker or pay PHS/GM heritage $50-150 for the date and I don't think either have the date ASC built the car, just the factory month/year.

    @mfewtrail #2499 is not a TGP, it's a 4 cylinder LE sedan instead. One of those odd 1 c@rf@x record VINs. 1G5WP14V2LF297363

    Strange PS Pump Noises

    Replacements are fairly cheap to get you by, TurnOne Steering will rebuild your pump if you`re wantng to keep it original. Probably cheaper than OE if you can still find them.

    fuel pressure regulator

    I take it the engine is the LQ1?.......pre 94 or post 93........makes a difference, post 93 has no map sensor, just the vacuum port for the FPR & trans modulator generally pressure at the rail when running at idle is just above 40lbs., it would seem that you're in the ballpark, when the FPR goes it usually is the diaphragm that tears, little pressure & the plenum will suck the fuel in thru the map port. Without removing the plenum one can remove the rubber hose for the fpr at the map & you will instantly get fuel odour, now are the rubber hoses at either end of that tube that feeds the FPR are not rotten & leaking vacuum? If the internal spring goes the fuel rail goes lean but there is no leakage into the plenum. Engine running/wide open throttle/low vacuum/full spring pressure/max fuel pressure. Engine at idle/full vacuum/vacuum pulls on the diaphragm against the internal spring to lower fuel pressure. If you have a vacuum pump/gauge on hand test the FPR for vacuum at the MAP port, if you can't pull anything then either the tubing is leaking or the FPR has failed. Normal vacuum at engine idle is approx 16-17 inches vacuum. The only way to test the FPR itself is with the plenum removed. There are 2 ports at the MAP..... 1 is the FPR feed & the other is the vacuum for the trans modulator, if either are leaking engine idle will be upset.

    Yes. Thanks. If your buddy goes back before the car is crushed: Please ask him to snap a photo of the build date on the driver's door jamb sticker if it's still there.

    Man you guys are carving out a little piece of automotive history here. How many do you guys think are still out there? I shouldn`t want another 30+ year old Pontiac, especially one they dont make parts for but I`d really like to save one of these one day. I hate seeing an unwrecked car go to the JY.

    '95 CS convertible fails to upshift in turns

    I took the 'vert out for a sunset run this evening and it's never run better. Shifting is so smooth, I can hardly feel it, even though I can hear it and see the evidence of it on the tachometer. Even though I didn't replace the vacuum line to the modulator—it still has the original hard line—I must have gotten it seated better than it had been when I buttoned things back up after this afternoon's aborted attempt to replace it. At this point, I'm quite content to let things ride, no pun intended.

    '95 CS convertible fails to upshift in turns

    As your attorney I would advise you to replace the vacuum hose to the modulator as well, maybe even give that a shot before replacing the component. You might try adding some heat to the area around that bolt to get it to loosen up too, or a 6ft piece of metal pipe around your wrench. Sometimes you can use an additional combo wrench of a similar size to use as a breaker bar as well, old mechanic trick thats hands down guaranteed to either bust the bolt/nut loose or bust your knuckle against something hard. Or punch yourself in the face, I`ll never forget when I did that to myself. I was so pissed off and had no one to hit back. Still looking for that 3/4 combo in the woods too.

    Hey @mfewtrail, I remember you saying you needed to run a bunch of cars for the options, I discovered this site to do so for free. http://www.free-vin-decoder.com and it works too. You can run about 50, then it tells you you've run too many but with a VPN or proxy, you should be able to keep going. Beats paying Compnine.

    92 Oldsmobile Cutlass need advice about heater core removal.

    Take some relief in knowing that if you had the LQ1 engine in there to get at the heater hose fittings one has to pull up the upper plenum assembly to allow one to get access to them.

    92 Oldsmobile Cutlass need advice about heater core removal.

    The *upper* weatherstripping being referred to is that length of rubber that seals the hood when it is down. The secondary cowl cover is that plastic shield that you see which is full of leaves. Remove both of them to get at the fastener that is below the cover. Aside from releasing the heater core hoses everything else is done inside the passenger compartment.

    1999 Regal GS deal, is it worth it?

    Sounds like a good plan. There aren't tons of things that can cause a crank/no-start situation on a 3800. Check fuel pressure at the rail. If there is fuel, unplug the MAF. If that doesn't work, plug it in and unplug the MAP. If that doesn't work it's likely something ignition related, likely crank position sensor or ICM. Outside of that you'd be diagnosing wiring/PCM issues.

    Back into a W for a minute...

    Well, the Cutlass is gone. Sold it last night for 1500. Put quite a bit of money in it, but all is good. Now to just sell the Corsica...

    Restoration project...

    I’ve owned it for almost 22 years now ( bought it in October 1998 ) and I took pretty good care of it when it was my daily driver. It did see some winter roads and salt, but was frequently washed soon after the snow melted. Actually, most of the time I have owned it, I have at least had a carport to put it in. Even the 11 years it was in the lumber barn, it was mostly covered by a roof.

    My 1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme Convertible

    Hi everyone, I’m happy to be in this group. Here are a few pictures of my car. We’ve painted it and had a new top installed but interior is original. Pretty good shape for 175 dollars running and driving.
