  1. I would also recommend anyone into GM OBD1 cars to keep an eye out for a tech 1. Unlike Tech 2's, they are generally pretty cheap, and with the mass storage cartridge, you can scan EVERYTHING for GM OBD1.

    4T60E Shifting Issue: 95 Cutlass Supreme

    That shop really doesn't have any clue, but honestly trans issues are pretty hard to diagnose since most everything is impossible to get to. They said it was "all electrical was good," but could they actually explain what it was doing? When it was apparently shifts into too high a gear or whatever causes your "rpm to drop" as you describe, could they state what gear was the transmission actually in and what is the PCM commanding at that time? In any case I would bet a lot of money the TCC Solenoid is not the issue. Keep us posted.

    1st Gen Lumina: 16" wheel width?

    GTP wheels weren't 7.5". All 5 spoke Grand Prix wheels were 7" whether they were on a GTP or an SE, and GTP's with crosslaces are 8" So all first gen 16" wheels are 6.5", except Grand Prix 5 spokes were 7", and Grand Prix crosslaces were 8".

    TGP VIN database - website inside!

    1G5WP14V5LF273655 Red/Tan cloth, CD player, No sunroof. https://wichita.craigslist.org/cto/d/1990-pontiac-grand-prix/6652531096.html
  5. Would maybe be interested in red louvers (really only need a right side) and the OE tape deck radio. I've given up on finding an OE CD player.

    4T60E Shifting Issue: 95 Cutlass Supreme

    From what I can gather, the issue is it's just not staying in 2nd long enough and shifting to 3rd way too soon? That's an interesting one. I agree with the tech 2/scanner route. Gear selection is fully electronic. The PCM commands shift solenoids on the e version. I agree and think you have to start out by watching with a scanner and see what the PCM is commanding to determine if something is causing the PCM to select 3rd when it shouldn't, or if it's not selecting 3rd and something in the trans is effed. Also make sure your early shift is not the TCC. The 4T60e usually locks the TCC before it's in 4th gear. I can't remember if it's during 2nd or 3rd gear. I want to say it's third though.

    TGP ABS Brake Master Cylinder Assembly

    Any idea of how well they work, accumulators good, etc?

    TGP Moving Sale

    Probably going to have to Craigslist the cars. This is a pretty terrible place to try and find buyers. Scrap will probably give you $200. I'd think they'd sell easily for more than that on Craigslist/eBay/BringATrailer.

    Rockauto

    It is an AC compressor for my brothers 96 Grand Prix. His old one has a slow leak. And no, it does not say this anywhere on their website. That’s why I posted to let the forum know so everyone can make an informed decision on whether the cheap cost of rockauto is worth forgoing your warranty.

    Performance Shift

    I'm betting the wiring is broken. Pull up the shifter boot and inspect, and if that looks ok, pull up the top of the console and inspect. I bet you will find an issue.

    96 GP: radio display is extremely dim

    Dim as in backlighting is not working? I know I've taken some apart and soldered in new bulbs.

    Just bought a Predator for my LS4 GXP

    What makes DoD so bad on LS4's? I'm a certified Chrysler tech and it's great on HEMI engines. Also be careful about pre-packaged tunes out there. I noticed on C6 Corvettes (I had an 05 for awhile), most simply opened the throttle more with less input. Easy to do with an electronic throttle body. They "feel" a lot faster since a little bit of throttle does a lot. And man, do you hear a lot of testimony about how great these tunes are on the forums because of how they "feel", when they really aren't making a single extra horsepower.
  13. It can be done without the tools. It just makes the job easier. 38844 I've always found useless. 35669 just removes the top shaft nut. Use it if you have it, but you should have little trouble getting this nut off with normal tools. 35668 threads onto the shaft can be useful for holding the assembly up straight while working, because the spring will want to cock it to the side once the rubber mount piece is pulled out. but it doesn't work on most replacement cartridges because they have the wrong thread pitch. Aftermarket doesn't give a shit. Pry bars will get the job done. 35671 removes the nut that holds the cartridge in the body. Very useful, but perhaps a pipe wrench or something would work as well. Yeah, suck all the old oil out once the old cartridge is removed. The new cartridge will blow new oil out by design once it starts getting used if it's factory style. Aftermarket ones may not do this, but won't need oil anyways.
