    Hvac controls not illuminating on 94 Lumina

    Yeah, likely soldered in. Doesn't mean you can't unsolder the bulb(s) and solder in new.
  2. There should be oil in there. As I said in an above post. You are supposed to suck it all out and the factory style cartridges from GM blew out some new oil the first time they were used and refilling the housing. I don't think any aftermarket ones use the oil though. I think they are normal sealed shocks and should be run dry. Either way suck the oil out before installation. Those original GM ones that ran in their oil bath were different looking things.

    L82 upgrade options

    You could always do a large port swap. In 2000 3100s got the larger 3400 stuff. Larger port heads, larger port intake manifolds, and larger 56mm throttle body. I did that to my brother's L82 in his 96 GP. You'd be turning your L82 into an LG8.
  4. No particular keywords. Just search for a tech 1 on ebay and craigslist. The thing to keep in mind would be the presence of a Mass Storage Cartridge (MSC). You definitely want one of those. It has the hundred other cartridges already loaded on board. With that card you can scan anything GM OBD1. You would only need other cartridges for non-GM products. You can buy a tech 1 without it and buy the MSC on eBay separately if you want (that's what I did), but ideally you'd want a Tech 1 with it already present. MSC's aren't rare on eBay, but they don't pop up for sale everyday either. MSC's need programmed, but even if it hasn't been programmed, I should be able to do that for you if you send it to me. Picture of the MSC:

    Map sensor breather clip

    Not sure what you're talking about. Do you mean the retainer clip?
  6. 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.
  10. 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.

    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.
