    fuel related intermittent no start issue

    I’ve got an intermittent no start problem on a 95 Auto SC. I’ve replaced the fuel pump (and complete fuel sending unit) and filter recently. When I turn the key on I get two clicks from the left side of the trunk. I checked/reset the bump switch but it didn’t help. This morning it started up...

    Periodic no start.

    I had this a few months ago, couldn't possitively ID fuel pump, but not knowing the history I had the entire sending unit replaced along with fuel filter, also took the engine down to the head gaskets and refreshed everything, gaskets and ARP bolts, lifters, plugs, wires, valve stem gaskets...

    Late model (95) 5-speed swap

    Wanting to know what's needed besides the mechanical stuff for a 5-speed swap in a 1995 SC. Does the existing wiring for the auto car have what you need for the 5-speed? Does the EEC need to be changed? If I tackle the swap it would be done while the engine is out. I've got a passing...

    New (to me) 95 SC Auto

    I just finished driving home in my new 95 SC Auto. It has 117K miles, rebuilt engine 45K ago, factory rebuilt Transmission 85K ago, new coat of paint in 06, a bunch of suspension parts over 2011 to 2013. I flew out to Philidelphia, bought the car and driove it home to Chicago, a grueling 14...

    New Rack & Pinion stiff at idle, ok off idle...?

    Shop is telling me it's a defective rack & pinion, didn't have any problem with stiffness before, just leaked like a sieve. If they are unable to diagnose something else and fix the problem they suggest R&R'ing another rack & pinion at my cost (I brought in the part). If anybody has any...

    89 SC PS dipstick-cap differences...?

    I need to change out the steering rack on my 89 SC and decided I'd fix the reservoir on the pump while I'm at it. When I look up the part at RA I see the image below (black), but the actual part on my car looks like the one directly under this text. I'm thinking the black cap fits where the...

    2-piece plastic crank pully shroud...

    Looked at the crank position sensor on my 89 SC over the weekend and noticed there are no covers, thinking that may be why the CPS isn't working consistently. Going to replace the sensor regardless and would like to replace the covers after. If anybody has these parts in good to excellent...

    So it's been sort of cold up here in Chicago lately, Lol! Couple of weeks ago I started up my 89 SC 5-speed, when I turned on the headlights I got the battery light.

    89 NA bypass vacuum actuator supply line, where does it come from?

    I let a shop perform a Head Gasket job on my 89 SC. Upon inspection I noticed the vacuum line supplying the NA bypass butterfly vacuum actuator isn't hooked up. I can't even find the line anywhere so I suspect it may be hooked up to the wrong place! Where does this vacuum line come from on the...

    Oil Pan (side) Gaskets (rubber or other...)?

    I know the 3.8 uses RTV for the long runs (sides) of the pan and a rubber strip for the rounds at either end. Wondering if anybody has used their pan to make a rubber (or other material) gasket that would enable cleaning and slipping the gasket in from the side, perhaps after coating it top and...
