  1. It sounds like you are making progress. Do you have the wiring diagram? Look for slices, they corrode sometimes. If the circuit is fed by a common fuse check fuse for continuitity and for power at the fuse. Keep following the circuit back. Do you have the manual? The manual. Tells you where specific splices and grounds are exactly. By following back the circuit to its origin you should find the problem. I'm going to keep an eye on this one if you need help or diagrams or or locations of joints common connections or splices let us know I actually have a library that has all the wiring diagrams if I can't get it online Make long leads for your ohm meter and keep checking continuity between points to confirm there is no break in the wire. I had a 95 Eldorado friend's car last year with turn signal problems brake light problems and parking light problems it was disaster the problem the interesting thing about it was it was multiple problems and bad grounds in multiple locations and a bad splice it was confusing because there was no commonality to the problems but I will tell you this high resistance in a circuit will cause odd things to occur elsewhere I had three bulbs in the rear light assembling that we're causing a high resistance condition which caused problems with the IPC. Always look for commonality in grounds power it will help diagnose the problem
  2. We had a member from Germany do the conversion and he DID inquire about the valve seats!!
  3. @babylon_nl I contacted Jake, he will be in touch with you shortly
  4. @Mikemt68 Glad the photo led to a solution and KHEs sharp eye picked up on the problem. KHE is our resident AC guy, I didn't even look at the photo, I was just happy to get it up here. When KHE saw where the wire goes, I thought to myself, how did I miss that? Haha.... because I didn't actually look at the photo, I was being obedient and posting the photo! And @OldCadTech reaches the 100 like threshold!
  5. Ok here you go Mike @Mikemt68
  6. Email the photo to me if you want and Ill post it here for you, I PMd my email address.
  7. Check ignition wire order, make sure the wires are seated on the plugs and not on their sides Did you replace the intake manifold seals and what was their condition? What codes are you getting?
  8. So when its loaded with weight what happens?
  9. It may just need a tune up, plugs, wires, there could be corrosion at the coils where the ignition wires connect, water can leak an get the area wet
  10. @Jeffery thank you for the update
  11. Ok I see it, 99, I needed to go into her profile
  12. Thanks I dont get that info on the android app. What year is it?
