    Electrical issues ??

    I have no idea if it's remotely related or not but I just fought a long battle with a cam sensor issue and figured I'd share. Have you hooked up a oscilloscope to the cam sensor? I found that in my case the signal was out of spec, almost twice the peak to peak voltage, along with 'noise'...

    Hot summer days and the SC

    Apples to oranges but I know how you feel. The Terminator swapped Mark VIII I used to own would heat soak on hot summer days and 220 degrees operating temperature was pretty normal when it was 95 plus ambient temps. I ran an OBD2 gauge on it that had a programmable alarm function. I set the...

    Weird mark 8 speedometer issue

    I would have to look in the EVTM for my '96 but I can tell you the PCM gets vehicle speed on pins 33(-) and 58(+). My guess since it is the 1st year OBD2 Mark VIII, it gets vehicle speed from the wheel sensor(s) but I know there is a VSS on the 4R70W. I have found the '96 to be a one year...
