    1995 Cutlass Supreme Hazard Button

    IIRC, you'll need a smallish Phillips screwdriver...

    91 vs 95 LQ1 Comparison

    I see the bolt hole for the cam position sensor, but no hole for the sensor.

    91 vs 95 LQ1 Comparison

    ‘96 is easy to spot, the plenum is a completely different shape. EDIT: Also, the '96-up has the ignition coils mounted on the passenger side of the plenum, instead of in front of the exhaust manifold, and a different style EGR, which is visible next to the intake, much like standard 60* V-6 cars... Yours is a pre ‘94 (no cam position sensor on the front head), but a ‘94-up valve cover. The MAP sensor on the passenger side rear of the plenum is a good sanity check, because ‘94-up don’t use a MAP.

    96 GP shakes when AC is on

    Generally, the ECM bumps up the idle when the compressor kicks on..what is your idle speed?

    Rebuild or reseal??

    In my opinion, it doesn’t need rings or bearings at 85k...

    LQ1/LX9/LZ9 compare.. LQ1 stroker?

    I lost two timing belts on my '95 LQ1 Cutlass. One at idle in the driveway, and the second driving at 45 MPH. No damage either time...but plenty of colorful language.

    94 lumina hvac controls not working

    Sounds an awful lot like a badly aligned ignition switch, or a bad switch.

    Belt tensioner is loose and stripped the bolt over tighten it

    Isn’t that a left hand thread?

    It’s not bad at all. The only thing to be careful of is to drill straight, and don’t let the drill wander while you’re drilling, and be sure to use lubricant when you tap the hole..

    TGP Moving Sale

    I've always wanted one...even though I already have my old Actron CP-9110, and that OTC-4000E... I seem to be collecting scantools--I'd love to find a good GM Tech 1 tool, too.

    Digital dash and HUD

    Rich, I'll keep looking at junkyards around here, in case I run across any decent seals--but it's been a long time since I saw a Cutlass convertible in any of the yards around here.

    95 HUD install

    The GP dash countours at each end don't line up well with the door panels in the Cutlass. I've seen one done before, and it didn't look very good.
  14. Mine looked much the same after replacing the rear struts..had to have a wheel alignment done to set things right.

    I’d try to get everything convertible related they’ll let you get. Many of those parts, like the top and rear quarter windows are unique to that specific year. If you could get all of those pieces, and had money to burn, you could replicate the car using another body.
