Re: 1993 3.1 will not stay running

Since you were working with the thermostat, is it possible the wire to the temp sender is messed up or disconnected?
If it is off, would that cause the car to run real rich and die? Maybe pull a spark plug and see if it is dark from running rich.

Re: Help with 76 New Yorker

When I recovered an 85 Driver's seat, I was able to get the original type fabric from:

I don't know if they have leather. You will have to have an upholstery shop make seat covers.
I doubt you will find replacement covers for such a rare car but you never know.

Re: Looking for a bunch of different parts

Are you aware there is a Facebook Beretta group? You may be able to obtain some parts off the FB market place.

Re: Black z26 hood

Oh man, I feel for you. If it weren't for bad luck, you'd have no luck at all. What the heck were you doing when you rear ended the guy? I did something like that once, I had just taken a shower and I was itching my ear canal and I looked down to see if anything was on my finger and wham! I read end...

Re: 3100 Oil leak after LIMG not sure where

When you say left side, do you mean pulley side or trans side? Often left is, as viewed from the driver's seat. Anywho, there is an o ring on the driver's side of the engine that can fail and leak a lot. Then there is the possibility that your valve cover gasket got miss aligned upon installation. I...

Just a thought

I had my 88 out yesterday. It's been awhile since I drove it and I just wanted to clean the rust off the brakes. I found a dead mouse in the trap I put in the engine compartment so I got rid of the body. On my drive, I spot this strange looking car coming at me. As it gets closer, I see it a Rolls R...

Re: The Z26 you all wanted to see

Frame rot??? Say it isn't so! That is such a nice looking car.
BTW, I have a spoiler stoplight lens. Not in mint condition but pretty good.
What is it worth to you?

Re: Torque Converter Lockout Operation

It's under the side cover of the trans. I did it on my daughter's 90. It was tricky to get the cover off because it's close to the frame but I was able to jack the engine up enough to do it. Once the cover is off, the solenoid is pretty easy to change. In my case, I cut the wires and re soldered the...

Re: My new baby

Looks like a really clean low mileage car. Nice find. I think that car was on FB, in Oregon area?
Too far away or I might have bought it.

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

I bought some Douglas tires from Walmart. They get good reviews and are supposed to be made by Goodyear. My old tires were Goodyear and about 11 years old. I read they had recalls for cracking awhile back. I'll put these tires on in the spring on my 88 since I put the 88's Z-26 wheels on my 96 and I...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

Corrosion on the ECM pins was what I was thinking but yours looks good. I hope you find the problem.
Thats a nice looking car and solid on the underside. I like the color. I had a 92 that looked just like it.

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

The rockers on the 96 are rusted out on the bottom, shock towers are OK but the frame rail on the gas tank side is bad.
I doubt it's worth putting too much into it to save it. If something really nice came up, I might be tempted.
I have the 88GT with 30k on it so I will still own a Beretta.
