  1. If you're on the FB groups there are always people parting out GXP's. I bet you could find one pretty easily there. What happened to yours?
  2. Are you looking for a parts car or a restore project?
  3. This is correct. My 94CS had a 3100 that came apart thanks to shoddy work by a mechanic. I had access to a low mile (sub 10k mile) 3100 out of an 01 Lumina IIRC. I had it gone through and put in. It worked just fine. When comparing my original motor was not roller rocker and the 01 was.
  4. That's the truth. People over on the SS forum hate CB750, but much of it is because they don't like the truth. He could certainly package it a little better and quit nitpicking when he knows someone is saying the correct info, but maybe used a term incorrectly.
  5. These are the way to go for 04-08 GP's. I have these on my GXP and they are quality parts.
  6. No, its never been touched. Just leaks a little. HAHA I am not surprised. I agree. I don't want to be up at night worrying about my niece. I have done some things with $ out of my own pocket and not charging more. I just want it to be solid and not have to worry about it.
  7. I know this is a common issue, but I haven't owned a 3800 and dealt with it before. I did a search and couldn't come up with a thread showing proper repair process, but I know its a common issue. I must be using the wrong terms. I am in charge of an estate. There is a 03 Lesabre with the 3800 that has low miles. I have a niece that is 17 and needs a relaible cheap car. I was giving it a once over and getting it ready to pass inspection (it sat for over a year). Everything seems good to go and ready for inspection, but I checked for this leak knowing it was common and did find that it leaks slightly. On a google search I found a variety of opinions concerning the proper repair, but I have no idea how knowledgeable those people are. Everything from replace the o ring and quick connect at that connection to replacing the entire line. It appears Oreilly carries the ACDelco 217-452 orings. Is that all that is needed or is there something else that should be addressed. I just want to make sure its fixed for my niece.
  8. Looks great. Did they redo the center cap as well? My experience having my wheels like that refinished is the paint they use isn't nearly as durable as the factory finish and is much easier to damage. Some refinishes are better at it than others.
  9. There are some very fast LS4's out there and the weak links are more or less figured out. There are several known builders on the Facebook groups. I am sure they would tell you what diff's they are using, but I am not sure that is the weak link. Triple Edge Performance, Justin Nichols, and several others are known builders.
  10. I jumped the relay and the compressor engaged. No cold air. I tried using the needle across the green and black wires coming from the compressor (didn't see red/black) and got 0v. When looking on Rockauto I see 2 switches listed. Is there a simple way to figure out which one I have?
  11. Way to stick with it. This will be great once its done. Post a vid when you get it out and run it.
  12. I hope it's just the solenoid. That would be far better. Keep us posted.
  13. I have several multimeters so I am good there.
  14. Ok, other than jumping the relay, how would I test the swtich? I need to hook them up and check. I only had about 20 minutes before I knew my daughter would be waking up so I just ran out and jumped the relay to see if it kicked on and if the air got cold.
  15. Bit of a long story. Noticed in June as it really starts heating up here in TX that the AC wasn't cooling as much as it should be. Wife was due with out first child in early July so I was a bit preoccupied. I did hook gauges up and find it was low on freon. Went to add some freon towards the end of July. That went fine except the high side valve would not shut completely when finished and removing gauges. (seen this before so not shocked, just irritated). All freon leaked out. Decided to order new high side/Low side ports, orings, and dryer. Replaced those and vacuumed the system down. Went to add freon. Did not notice until halfway into this that the compressor was not running. Finished charging and the compressor still doesn't cycle on. Was busy with the baby so another week or so went by. Had a chance to look at it and everything seemed fine, but no compressor cycling. I removed the relay and put power to cycle the compressor and it does run, but the air still isn't getting cold. I guess it's possible something is still leaking and the freon leaked out. However, It seems there is still something wrong keeping the compressor from cycling. I am trying to rack my brain for what could be causing that. I am in a bit of a fog with a newborn and feel like I might be missing the obvious. Anyone else encountered this?
