    Not sure. Since your car is a low mileage one, maybe that's why it still retains it. My 89 International parts car is relatively a low mileage car too. I stole it for the 91 car.

    A really bad week for International coupes getting junked. This was posted on FB, a Georgia car. I think it's odd this car doesn't have the trunk luggage rack or fog lights.

    10-4. I lucked out and took this one from the 89 International 3.1 parts car and put it on the 91 car. I found this NOS one and bought it for the 93 STE. I don't know if they are rare pieces but I always look for them in the yards. Looks like the STE has an aftermarket one. Yuck.

    I believe the radiator cap is the original one. Not very common. I also believe they used the same cap on the LQ1's. At least for the 91 model years.

    That's good news! I have a ton of extensions and swivels. Along with my own tools, I inherited a whole bunch of other tools recently.

    I'm going to look thru some old threads and see what I need to do for mine. I'm going to change out the wires/plugs when I do the LIM gaskets. I really don't want to bend the metal lip.

    Yup. Memphisman brought this to my attention and I checked on my car. No notches so I'm assuming my hasn't been subjected to that.

    Nice, I don't know if I've heard of anyone doing it this way but whatever is easiest. I might try this on my 96 CS 3.1 car. Thanks!

    Thanks so much! I'll owe you big, well more than I already do. I look for Aztek stuff all the time for you but I'm just not having any luck. I would love to be the guy that finds a rare item for you or something that you can cross off your list. I printed it out and take it with me every time I go to the yards.

    Excellent! Yeah, I guess I have extra holders but I need the bracket that bolts to the cam cover there. Pretty sure the STE is missing it. It's funny, little things like this make a big difference in the appearance of a motor. Is that the actual pic of the car then? If so, I could use the little hose clamps coming out of the vacuum lines that go into the plenum/air box. Extra 4 piece cam covers would be awesome too. Thank you! My STE looks like it has a lot of the original hose clamps on it thank goodness! Those front wires are incorrect and just thrown everywhere. It's driving me crazy! And the dirtiness! Those bolts for the windshield washer fluid are also incorrect.

    No, not yet but I've heard the horror stories. I have a lot of patience though and will happily do it when the time comes. I just want to fire her up for now and then go from there. Looks like I'm going to go thru the same thing with the STE. At least I will learn from the International and apply that to the STE to make things easier.

    Sorry I can't help you there as my car already has an LQ1, LOL! I am starting to do the maintenance on her and getting her ready to start for the first time I've owned her and probably the first time in more than 10 years!

    Guys are always looking for the rear spoiler and tail lights if they are not cracked and in good shape. I would like the CD player if so equipped. Factory cup holder for another member. The little pin cup plastic pieces in the windshield header for all the vert guys. The rear quarter panel window sweeps/rubber. If you decide to not use the motor from it, I would like the little spark plug wire holder and bracket for the front spark plug wires. My STE is missing it I think. It's this little bracket and holder pictured here on my International that is mounted on the cam cover holding the red spark plug wires. Anything you can grab would be appreciated, thank you!

    It's already gone, not crushed. I took the bar off for another member already.

    A gentleman on FB found this car on his trip to Canada I believe. Absolutely breaks my heart.

    Well crap, it is an International then. What color interior? Any rare options? No wait, I don't want to know!

    Oh, maybe it's not an International then, the one in the pic. I see pies but can't see a International door badge. Manic will know. Unless it's a LQ1 equipped non International car with the fender badge missing?

    Looks like another International meeting it's end, really not cool. Surprised to see it has rust on the hood. Please don't show me a 91 International LQ1 sedan if it ever comes up in a yard. I don't think I could take it.

    That's a bummer. Sort of a strange combo I think, white and black. Whoever put those rims on it should be ashamed.

    Oh God, 5.0, digital, moonroof, and CD. This one hurts! At least it's not a Cougar I guess.

    Proud new owner of a 1991 Olds Cutlass Supreme International coupe. Looking forward to learning about these cars, loved them since I was a kid.

    Just got done with replacing all the incorrect hose clamps with the correct ones. I also had to pull the front manifold to replace a missing bolt that holds the front coolant tube and engine oil dipstick tube. Wasn't too bad and I learned a lot! Since the coolant tube wasn't tight up against the cylinder head, the alignment was off 1/4 inch where it meets up to the coolant junction housing. Now that it's tight, it meets up perfectly. I replaced the little rubber hose between the tube and the coolant junction housing and also put a new gasket on the housing. I'm going to do some touchup paint on the clamps and it will be good to go. If anyone needs the little 10 mm bolt for the coolant tube and engine oil dipstick tube, here's the part #. I also got some original floor mats from a member here and he's also on FB. Perfect passenger and rear seat mats but the driver's one is pretty worn. At least I have a full correct set until I find a better driver's side one. Thank you Spencer!
  24. Hey guys, I have the front exhaust manifold loose and ready to pull off but not sure how to get the crossover exhaust pipe that lays on top of the tranny loose to pull the manifold off. Is there any brackets along the side or underside of it that I have to unbolt? Or do I need to loosen the bolts that go into the rear manifold instead? Can't really see too well down in this area so not sure if there is any brackets or bolts on the crossover pipe. Thank you.

    91 CS International LQ1 front exhaust manifold removal.

    Thanks to 55trucker, I loosened the three rear manifold bolts just enough to wiggle the crossover pipe away from the front manifold. Worked really well and everything is repaired and put back together. Thanks 55!
