Ya took out a 240? lmao, I have to ask what kind of driver were they?
Where is the toyota on the achievment list?
That 240 seems to only have done one run, mechanical problems? I'm sure if he had a few more runs, probably would have slaughtered the poor Beretta lol.
Also here's were my brother landed:
He wasn't to far off from me. Those Celica's have really close gearing and he had stickier direzza compounds compared to me.
Seriously, the Beretta's only strong suit is its handling. Just look at how well it attacks the slalom with minimal bodyroll:
Time to start questioning the PN they are giving you and if it's even the correct one if it's causing that many issues. I mean a sensor is a sensor, quite simple really and I can't understand how different brands would act that differently. For instance I do not have only ACDelco sensor on my car, I have a variation of BDW and NAPA stuff.
I'm baffled by it too. The designs are the same and everything. GM used the 3pin and 2pin in that era with the 3pin being for the older vehicles and 2 being used generally around 95 and up with the jbodys L4s. Maybe my car is just a special snowflake.
Loved BWD. Had many sensors from them over the years. Replaced the TPS on the GF's car with BWD years back as well as on my car. Seemed to help her car a bit, but it was still shifting strange. Just thought it was getting old and worn out. Last year put a Delco in and it started shifting much better. Should have done that years ago. Sometimes you just get a bum sensor. Now BWD has three levels: low, mid and high. Low and mid are junk. The high is just as much as Delco. More or less it's the same thing anyway.
I have other odds and ends in my 'retta that's BWD with no issues. Could be a bum sensor but it just throws me for a loop since the coolant temp sensor is a real simple piece of equipment.
It has been found for late GM vehicles using individual coils per cylinder (remote or COP) can have a unique set of coils used. No real rhyme or reason for it, but it is something to be aware of. You cannot have the two styles mixed/used on the very same engine due to a design difference, however, you can change them all to one style or the other. You must remain consistent for which style you use.
Early avalanche's can be equipped with a set of round and a set of square coils, not both under the same hood. If equipped with squares, you can swap to round, but all eight must be changed over. Same logic for the other way.
Wow, that's a very interesting read. I would never have thought of something like that would even be an issue.
Also I'm pretty I narrowed down why my car has trouble starting when up to temp. Looking at the symptoms, it's probably heat soak with my starter or batter cable connections connected to it. They are so damn close to the exhaust and I know for sure I have some exposed cable where the insulation came off. Heat increases electrical resistance which requires more power to overcome until the resistance reaches that point that not enough power can be supplied to get it going. My battery is fine but when I try to crank at temp, it draws a lot of electricity that everything goes dim and the battery starts releasing a lot of hydrogen gas after a crank or two.
It turns over fine when cold.
