Re: what did you do to your ride today?

"Mice mostly eat wires off of some of the newer cars that have a soy element to the insulation, but of course they can chew anything." I've heard about the newer wires with soy but way back, years ago, We had a 73 Camaro which sat for a few weeks as we tried to sell it. Mice ate the plug w...

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

How does the car smell? When mice got into mine, I had a hell of a time getting the stink out. They chewed the seat belts and rubber weather stripping. Nowadays I hear they eat the insulation off wires in cars. I hate mice. I keep traps baited outside so they don't get the chance to get in. Resist t...

Re: Touch up paint for my white GTZ

"Is this the same thing? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dupli-Color-Sc ... 4233!US!-1" since it has the same 8554 number, I'd say yes. Your car has base coat and clear coat. The 8554 is the base color and the other number on your sticker is the clear coat. The spray requires a clear coat over it...

Re: 1988 Beretta misfire when cold and random acceleration

These engines had injectors that went bad often. When cold, it runs rough but smooths out a little when warm. You can pull the spark plugs and they should all be very light brown or almost white. If they are all black except one, which would be lighter the the other five, you have a bad fuel injecto...

Re: Echoes71

I'm sorry for your loss. It's always sad when someone passes on.
I lost a sister, sister in law, cousin, and uncle, all in this past year.
Maybe you can post a link to the car when they sell it.

Z26 lawn ornament

In Wisconsin, over the past ten or so years, I always see this poor Beretta sitting in somebody's front drive.
I wonder if it's worth saving? Maybe someday I'll stop and ask and take a look see.

Re: Bfest 2018 Registration Open!

People tend to procrastinate. Somehow it always seems to have a good turnout. I can appreciate the work that gets put into setting this up. Hope all others do as well. I've never been to one. I'm close enough that if I decided to go, I don't need a hotel. I'd maybe just go to some events, if possible.

Re: no fuel pump, no spark, no power to fuse

The holes for the screws of the switch are elongated for adjustment. Maybe you just need to adjust the switch.

Re: What is an average cost for a Z26?

Sold my daughter's Z26 a little over a year ago. All things were in good working condition, it had good tires too. Some rust through visible, interior excellent. Over 200k on the odometer but engine and trans had 175k on them. I asked $1500, after a couple months, got an offer of $1200 so I took it....

Re: Won't stay running..

My 88 2.8 has a maf sensor. Does your 89? My 96 MAF sensor caused me some trouble. I'm wondering if you have one, is that the culprit. Have you pulled out some spark plugs to see what is going on inside the cylinders? Such as black spark plugs or dry white spark plugs. Do you have a timing light to ...

Yep, that is the wife's 85 T-Type garage princess. You have a good eye to be able to see what car is in the reflection.

Re: Corsica misfiring after rain

Wasn't sure about the voltage but I didn't think it proper to just apply battery voltage to test. I didn't want to read he now needs new injectors. There is info out there that says to test with a 9v battery to avoid too much current to the injector and thus damage it. Still another site says to tes...
