Ok, I’ve been on here for almost a decade. I KNOW we covet our cars and have always tried selling them at premium prices. But the bottom line, our cars rarely fetched prices over a covair. The deville ain’t a GTO, Coronet 500, GTX, 442…. So I thought? The other day I was checking listings, and these cars are pushing $30k. I know we could always find the”right buyer”, but I’m talking real liquid cash value. Is it our time? Or is it because the aforementioned classics are now fetching $60k??…See More

Fuel Gauge dampening: what is it?

So my fuel gauge was sticking, not moving very well and not reading full at full tank. I took the gauge out and starting cleaning the back of the needle where it attaches to the gauge and pivots. There was a viscous compound that I mistook as “gunk”, and I cleaned it real well. I reassembled everything and was satisfied with my handy-work when the gauge effortlessly shot up to full. But now, the gauge bounces around like crazy when driving. I guess I should have just lightly cleaned it and/or…See More

Custom Autosound Stereo WITH amplifier problem… help

Is there anyone with an amplifier that has installed a custom autosound head unit in their caddy? I’ve identified a problem with these units when paired with an amplifier. There is a crazy high pitched sound, even when benched tested (it’s not a ground loop issue). I’m trying to convince the manufacturer that they need to look in to this. Here is a video that will help if you want to know what to look for. …See More

How to tighten AC belt

Posted on September 11, 2017 at 2:30am 11 Comments

The shop manual shows some odd tool (j-9646?) that I can't seem to figure out what it is, and I just cant get enough tension to keep the belt from squealing. Any tips or tricks? 

I pulled  up on the compressor with my hands while my wife tightened the bolt. Sort of works, but when its hot out the squealing gets worse. 

Also, J-7316 belt tension gauge...  Thanks

Stalling and comfort control

Posted on January 8, 2015 at 12:29am 36 Comments

So I finally got my comfort control working. Everything seems to be working with actuators and stuff except for maybe the recirc actuator which acts funny. Anyway so at least four times now when I turn on the comfort control my car starts to stutter and then the other day on the street it totally stalled out. The strange thing is it stalled twice and then I couldn't get it started back up as if it was vapor locked. Any ideas? Vacuum? Coincidence? Maybe the carb is simply going bad and I just… Continue
