    Buffed and Polished the Regal

    If I were you, I would have left that roof alone since the clear coat is thinning/failed on it and polishing it will only accelerate failure. Have you ever used anything other than the Jescar to compare it to? I haven't really kept up with any detailing sites lately, but don't remember hearing all that much about those when I did. I just searched and found a review of the Jescar that I recall reading before. It looks like they have some pretty solid products in their lineup. I currently have a lot of 3D HD stuff which I absolutely love. HD Polish is probably my favorite polish I've ever used. It finishes really well, wipes off super easy, and never seems to dry up so you can work it forever.

    3.6 LFX Oil Catch Can installation

    Hopefully that milky mess is a result of condensation and not a coolant leak.

    ALDL Data Line ECM / ABS

    A PM3 datastream definition file can be found here: Here's an old post from another forum about that definition file for what it's worth. " However, for the ABS computer I'm lacking a point at which I can start, so some minimal information about mode 4 is needed. The document that I used to read the ABS (A156AM.txt) only contains the specification of the mode 1 protocol of the ABS. "

    Weird electronic event

    My '93 GP and the '94 Regal have it for sure. Not sure about the TGP's as I've never left the signal on to check. I quickly flipped through a 1990 owner's manual and don't see anything about it in those. I still have the '01 GTP owner's manual and it says it has this feature on page "2-48" and that you'll get a chime if the signal is left on for more than 3/4 of a mile.
  5. Compare them to these:,1990,grand+prix,3.1l+189cid+v6+turbocharged,1255621,electrical-connector,abs+wheel+speed+sensor+connector,762 edit: Copy and paste the link if it doesn't work.

    Pretty sure all w-bodies have the signal warning chime.

    Front suspension fail

    This is a good reminder to others to check your ball joints.

    1994 vert. LED Light conversion

    Any way you could make a short few second video and host it on youtube? I'm curious how it looks fully dimmed vs. fully bright. I installed an aftermarket switch containing a blue led a while back and it's pretty damn bright even with the dimmer turned all the way down.

    1990 'McLaren Grand Prix' review

    Here's another recent one...

    Replying to let you know I edited my post above(not sure we receive reply notifications for edited posts). Going back through old posts on the site, it appears others with 95's have had the 16 pin style connector as well. I however did not see anyone posting about having both connectors though which leads me to believe that was added by someone. I'm not sure what to tell you about that OTC scan tool now unless the OBD-II adapter cables will work for it. I have an OBD-II adapter cable for my OTC tool, but I don't know it it came with my ABS reader or my "mind reader" powertrain scan tool. The cable adapter has a port where it looks like it would take jumper keys or something similar to the ones older snap-on tools used. I didn't receive any keys with it and it's hard to find any documentation online for these old ass tools.

    It doesn't make a difference to that OTC tool I linked to. It will read 94-95 w-bodies and pre-94 with the same cable adapter. edit: I read over this quickly Saturday and somehow missed the part about both data connectors. I probably just assumed you didn't know if a OBD-1 scan tool would work on a 94-95 because people like to call them "obd 1.5." I said they would read either with the same cable because "1.5" w-bodies should have the 12 pin connector standard. I don't recall ever seeing a 16 pin connector in a 95. Maybe your car is a transitional period 95 or either someone added it like Imp558 suggested. Are you certain you have a 1995? What's the build date on the car?

    Keep an eye out on ebay for an OTC ABS Reader - part # 3757 or 3758. Both include the scan tool, just one part number denotes that the tool comes with a case if I recall correctly. That one doesn't appear to have any cable adapters, so you'll need OTC # 212633 gm adapter - about $10 shipped on ebay. All together, you could have the tool for half of what GM wants to scan it.

    If your CHMSL brake lamps actually light-up, you shouldn't have the same issue I did.

    Unusual Knock from my Cutlass

    How long have you had the car and was any work done prior to the knock? I know it's fixed already, I'm just curious though...

    Good replacement pillar door handles?

    What you can do to extend the life of any of them is only use the handle to unlatch the door, then grab the door elsewhere to pull it open. I normally grab the top of the door frame at the top corner to pull the door open. If you only use the handle like I've seen plenty of people do to fully open the door, then you're going to eventually break them no matter if it's a factory handle or an aftermarket replacement. Let your passengers know how to open the door properly as well!
