    Unusual Knock from my Cutlass

    Glad she's purring again. I take it the job included a new timing belt, pulleys, and tensioner. Thats probably how they got bent to begin with.

    Ignition switch replacement

    A loose or corroded battery terminal can cause weird stuff. Clean and tighten your battery terminals, if issue still occurs, clean your ground points. Also check the date on your battery. If it's too old, it could cause issues. Then drive to a parts store and have them test the battery, and the charging system. Rule these simple things out first, then proceed to the starter, and ignition switch.

    4T60E Shifting Issue: 95 Cutlass Supreme

    Damn! Hope you figure it out.

    Top Raising.

    Yes there is. Run the top up, then down, and open the reservoir fill plug. Tighten the plug, and repeat a couplr more times. There is a step by step procedure. Try Google search. And you are right, the O. P. should try bleeding the system. Then make sure all the fittings at the pump, and cylinders are tight. That is how air could have been introduced into the system: replacing the cylinder, or loose fittings.

    lim gaskets

    Exactly what he's trying to warn you about!! The torque for those bolts is lower than both of your torque wrenches start at.

    Sounding like the transmission didn't just die after all. Update us once you've replaced it. Hopefully before the end of fall.

    Hmm! . That's a tricky situation. The only thing i can think of is maybe one of the lines is restricting the fluid. To test for this, you can label the lines, pull them off the cylinder and shoot fluid into a bucket. Please use caution and wear safety glasses. Test the bottom fluid lines first, with the other ones still on the cylinders. Then reconnect the bottom and test the upper lines. This way you can rule out the flow in the lines. You can put some transmission fluid in the bucket before you hit the top button, this way fluid doesn't hit the bottom of the bucket and splash everywhere. If your lines flow the same, then your frame is binding mechanically. Or the cylinder you installed also has blow-by. Good luck..
