    Best Replacement AGM Battery

    I just replaced my 6 month old Advance AGM battery. I have a tester made by a company called Solar, model ba7. The battery failed the cca test (just 225 cca). Voltage test was fine, around 13 volts. Took it back to Advance where it failed on their tester too. I kept the battery on a charger at...

    Missing bad once warmed up, cam sensor?

    I think it should stay running. My car died out at a light. Was hard to start. Got it home. Changed every sensor/module except for cam sensor. Turned out to be crank sensor.

    Fuel pump connector melted

    Full Throttle is a vendor for racetronix. I burned up two factory bulk heads. Racetronix one has been good for a couple years now.

    Engine misses, stumbles, coughs - undriveable

    I had an O2 sensor fail at the dragstrip. Couldn't go past 30 mph like you. I would dump that Bosche O2 and put in an AC Delco.

    Heater Core Issue with 86 GN

    Only thing I can add is keep track of where the screws go. Some are different sizes. Also, for some reason, parts stores sometimes carry the wrong part for our cars. Match yours up with the one they order for you, if you don't get one from a Buick vendor.

    Say hello to the new Regal

    Turns out it has heated seats. I'm surprised there is no boost gauge. Is it possible to add one?

    Did you put a dab of oil on the O ring? Don't install them dry

    I installed an Autometer about 10 years ago. Was expensive but still works fine.

    Say hello to the new Regal

    I did get the call. Salesman offered to take $100 off the document fee but I was already going to look at another regal, this one a turbo with AWD. I wound up buying the AWD version. Seems pretty rare...base model with turbo and AWD. No fancy stuff like heated seats or lane avoidance . It does...

    Say hello to the new Regal

    Test drove a white 2016 today. 2 liter turbo. I liked it but I refused to pay $300 document fee. Maybe they will call me later in the week when they come to their senses. We agreed on $15,900. It has 19k miles.

    Ramchargers fans/Intrepid fans - those who've done it please chime in

    I'm also using the radiator fan switch on the manifold to trigger one of my Spal fans. It is a 190° switch. My fans only have one speed. So left fan is low speed, both fans is high speed. It's fun to watch the vdo gauge go to 200, then second fan kicks on and temp goes to ~185°.
