This is the problem I'm having. I took my alternator off, but now I can't figure out how to get the belt back on. I thought I was finally going to get an answer, but the link doesn't work anymore. Please help. :down

Another fairly common problem, so to speak, with Berettas was recently shed to light by BerettaLove32, the TCC. After the engine/tranny have warmed up it'll cause the Beretta to die, and in extremely bad cases, start but not move until you replace the Solenoid.

Hey  :)  I'm sure everyone here has had the same problem you're having.  The first thing you need is some plastic door panel screws, GM Part# 15600382.  You'll need 7 for each door panel.  Use a screwdriver or trim removal tool to remove the door panel.  There are also some Phillips screws, including one holding the door handle bezel, and a Torx screw or two holding the door panel on.  Pry next to each plastic trim screw (you'll see most of them if you look through the space between the panel and the door) being careful not to crack the plastic of the door panel.  By the way, the GM screws have gotten pretty expensive:  71 cents apiece was what I just bought them for.  You should be able to find the same screws in a parts store like AutoZone or Schuck's if you take one of your old ones with you.  The upper anchor, which is attached to the inner pull handle, many times comes loose or breaks.  This is repairable, but takes a while.  You'll need to cut some sheet metal in the shape of the anchor, then screw them together.  As far as your map pockets go, you can glue them to the door or drill new holes and screw it back in.  Hope this helps!

I'm seeing yellow goo on the inside of my oil cap (3.1 V6).  Is there anything else that causes that except a leaking intake manifold gasket?

Also, I'm getting vibration from the engine in reverse, especially when cold.  Loose motor mount or exhaust?

My gtu has a leak form my sunroof, I can never see it drip but there are drops of water hanging off the latch. Can the sunroof drain lines being plugged cause it to leak? I know that when I close the doors, I can see the sunroof jump and that is when it seems to me that it is leaking because the water is not draining from around the sunroof.


'89 white GTU with blue int. Just got a '00 3400 longblock dropped in. more to come.

I have a abs light on to I also have a 95.
My problem is that the rear driverside wheel speed sensor is not working any more.

You can tell if its the abs master cylinder or not if the light goes out after starting the engine and only goes on when you start moving. In this case like mine its probably a wheel speed sensor or wiring to the sensors.

Just a quick note to people haveing overheating issues that are possibly thermostat related, dont EVER buy a stant thermostat.  I am on number three right now and i believe it just failed (found out after some very helpful posts by users of this site).  As difficult as they are to put in (on the 95 3100 at least) it sucks to do it multiple times.  DONT BUY STANT!

What's the fuel pressure reading?  Maybe the pump can't keep up.  Could also be your IAC valve I suppose.

The headlight buttons in my '88 are shot, as is the wiper switch.   The wiper motors are long gone, also.  Luckily, it doesn't rain much here in Vegas.

I'm going to hook everything up to toggle switches!   :hammer



It was only supposed to be a #3 decal on the back window....

I have an '88 too, and I ditched mine.  I'm replacing them with sheets of diamond plate.  The only thing I'm trying to figure out is how to deal with the door levers and lock.  I'm going to mount armrests to them.
