  1. Cutlass Convertibles. With the 3100 you can use either a 3.1 or 3.4 bar, but IMHO, the 3.4 bars look better.

    Knock sensor location

    They are correct. That's where it is. I imagine it's a huge bitch to get to with the auto trans in the way.

    Looks like about the same drive for you as it is for me. 9 hours, 50 minutes.

    Hope Chris enjoys his calendar since I left it at his house lol

    Is it really that long? It's only like 12 hours from Pittsburgh to ATL.
  6. digitaloutsider Southern meetup 2019

    It's right under 10 hours for me. Count me in, I'd make the trek out to Nashville. Just wouldn't be in the Regal.

    Fun with Emblems

    I tend to take badges off rather than put them on, but when I had that '89 5-speed Cutlass I was going to 3400 swap, I was going to do that same V6 H.O. badge. FWIW, those badges were on '99 GA GTs only. The 2000+ has "V6 RAM AIR" or something like that.

    Oil change intervals, what do you guys suggest?

    My only fear with that (and I can't remember if I brought this up in the last thread or not) would be elevated levels of acid, since oil certainly collects it over time. I'd be interested if there is elevated bearing wear because of it.

    Oil change intervals, what do you guys suggest?

    Yeah this is literally the last thread we had repeated lol. For the Regal, I change the oil whenever the OLM tells me to or when I decide "huh.. it's probably been a really long time since I did that". On average, that's anywhere between 6-8k miles, but the car does a lot of short drives and when it does get driven, it is driven a lot harder than most 3800s are. The Corvette is changed in accordance with the OLM. I use the cheapest Dexos certified synthetic oil I can find and Fram Ultra Synthetic filters exclusively. If I'm feeling particularly sporty, I will add Lubrimoly MOS2. I have had oil analyses done on both cars which came back with flying colors, so I guess I'm doing something right. pitzel, have you sent an analysis out on that oil? I'd be really curious to see what they come back with.

    1994 DOHC 6 Racing and then sputtering

    I've personally never heard it, or seen it documented in GM literature that way, but anything is possible. The only thing I ever saw GM refer to it as was Twin Dual Cam, 24 Valve V6, or DOHC. The Fiero DOHC prototype simply had "DOHC 24 VALVE" stamped on the fuel injector cover. Man it's a shame they never built that car.

    Check the IAC and look for any vacuum leaks.

    Okay, that worked. I had to save it as my own project or else it wouldn't work. Thanks! Coupon code worked too.

    I can't seem to order it at all. The website won't add it to the cart. Argh.

    Weird electronic event

    Strange the Aztek doesn't have it, our '99 Montana had it and there is so much shared between the U-van and Aztek.

    Weird electronic event

    My '97 GP and '98 Regal definitely had it. '01 Regal I assume does, but I've never left it on. I was referring to the chime through the radio.

    Regal Window Trims

    I could never find a good solution to it. Back in the day, Rob Eye recommended peeling all the plastic off and repainting it, but like you, I didn't like the idea of eliminating the window sweep. Just have to keep your eye out for a set of good ones. Freeze cycles and salt DEFINITELY do them in. The ones on my '01 are perfect except for one small nick in the hard plastic on my driver's window, and I think I did that with an ice scraper by accident. The car never saw salt or winter driving, so I'm guessing that's what keeps them in nice shape.

    ATF smell.....Valvoline MaxLife????

    For what it's worth, new MaxLife definitely has a strong odor when it's fresh. When we put the TEP trans in the Regal, I did the initial fill with the Dex6 compliant MaxLife and it had a STRONG odor of transmission fluid for the first thousand miles. I was convinced I had a leak, but I could never find one. Eventually it went away altogether.

    Weird electronic event

    It seems to be a hit or miss feature. None of my 1G Grand Prixs ever had it. I think they all probably got it with the late 1G dash redesign. Only certain 2Gs do this, and as far as I know only the Chevys. The Pontiacs and Buicks definitely do not. Edit for clarification: the bong through the radio, not the turn signal chime. All 2Gs have the chime AFAIK.

    Putting in 125-way '89 power seats in a '96 GP?

    Between the two seats to provide air to the passenger side. There is only one air pump, and it is under the driver's seat.

    Putting in 125-way '89 power seats in a '96 GP?

    You just need all of the wiring, air tube, and controls. I doubt they even changed the power plug.
  24. What temperature is it actually hitting? The fan turn-on temps are pretty high in the factory calibration, and the gauges are only vague indications of what is actually occurring.

    2006 grand prix gt timing cover coolant leak.

    I saw it recommended when I did mine, but I didn't feel comfortable jamming it full of Vaseline. We dumped assembly lube into it and shoved it back together.
