Re: Z71 project 2.0 - 92 from Cali

Dig it!! No rust is key. Everything else can be fixed. Makes me miss mine that's for sure. It's amazing how the sun out west roaches the interior, I've never been to the west coast. I don't like the new trucks (or anything for that matter) personally. Too much sh#t to break, and they just feel like ...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

Finally the weather is improving, and I had a few bucks to get a battery. The one that came with the car was dated '13 and it just wouldn't hold a charge. picked up a die hard on Saturday and back on the road running great! Hoping to put some miles on the car this week as long as the weather stays d...

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 ...

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. Thanks, it's not anywhere near as nice as your '88, that's for sure! It does have good roc...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

Decided to pull the plugs and see if I could get a read on 'em. I also pulled the ecm, checked the connections, and opened it up to check for any type of water intrusion, it looks good. I had my dad look at the plugs and he said it looks like all 6 are running lean. I borrowed his MityVac and connec...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

...And if I had seen this before replying in the other thread... :pardon: Okay, so the MAP looks good, presumably the vacuum line to it is good too. I bought a 3.1/auto Camaro from a co-worker a few years back (and yes, sold it, thank you) that had a transient voltage surge in the low-voltage (5V) ...

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

Ohmed the injectors again with a cold engine, 11.8-11.9 ohms. Took some of the tape (looks like black duct tape) off of the injector harness and checked, looks good. Re-wrapped and started putting the plenum back on. I thought I would have time to fire it up, but I dropped one of the TB bolts betwe...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

I'm still troubleshooting this. I posted a bit about it in the "what did you do to your ride today?" thread. Injectors and harness ohm out ok. Replaced the CPS (had oil in it) and checked the harness to make sure it didn't get smashed under the cradle. I love having gm vehicles of similar ...

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

Investigating an engine cut-out/major hesitation, esp when cold. I unplugged the CPS and found oil. I removed the harness between the ICM and CPS, inspected and cleaned it. I replaced the CPS since it seemed the oil was leaking through the sensor. No dice, runs the same. I pulled the plenum and ohme...

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

I'm replacing the front parking brake cable. Raybestos BC94603 I got it from Rock auto. The damn thing is too long. I don't have enough adjustment to tighten it up. I guess I have to pull it back out and see if I can mod an end to make it shorter. I bought way back in July so I can't return it but ...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

Well the "idle relearn" worked for A few days, but it crept back up to about 1k in gear, and it hunts around/races at around 3k if I let it warm up in the driveway. I unplugged the TCC as a test, that is what I was feeling with the tranny. 1-2, 2-3 feel good, it was just kicking in and out...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

This past weekend along with some maintenance, I had to check out the front motor mount. I could tell something wasn't right ever since we took it in vacation. I had replaced the mount last winter so it's only got maybe 8k miles on it. Once I had the car jacked up I could see the front cradle was ri...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

What part of the country are you in? I do have a great shifting non-slipping TH125C (aka 3T40) in my '90 Yellow Indy -I want to 5-speed swap that car and just need the pedal set at this point, and the TH won't have a home after that (I have a few new CV joints for it too that came with the car)... ...

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

Oil change, tire rotation. Adjusted rear brakes. Fighting a high idle so I did a once-over for vacuum leaks. Pulled the IAC and cleaned it even though it looked ok. Did the mysterious "idle relearn" and she was idling at around 650 in gear, much better. We will see if it creeps back up. Al...
