    Mailbag: fewest words category

    I can top that THE🤣
  2. Bet it is. Just remember not to use too much. Will cause bigger problems
  3. I prefer the pvc for longevity because fiberglass tends to make the paint crack in places overtime. Thats just my experience anyway
  4. I would go for the plastic, but both would be sufficient. I remember them also. Many Chevys out there with broken fillers.

    Mailbag: stop engine low oil pressure

    I second the oil pressure switch. If that does not resolve it change the oil and filter. Sometimes the filter can cause the issue also
  6. Hello. Which car is this? Check your fuses in the trunk on the back side of the seat, left side. If you give me the year and model I can look at the schematic and it should be pretty obvious

    TPS and ICM Question

    If this continues after you get it back together you need to get a scantool hooked up to see what the IAC counts are. If IAC counts are 0 and the idle is high there is for sure a vacuum leak. If IAC counts are high and the idle is high then likely the IAC is at fault. Was the IAC replaced? If it was was it the correct one?

    TPS and ICM Question

    Sorry for the delay with my posts. Work too much. Great to hear you found the 1634 problem. I hope you closely inspected the rest of those wires in that plug. As soon as I saw the 0 on that pin that nailed it. You are doing very well. We will get this. Long shot I know but it bears to mention that vacuum leaks do not always cause a lean code. That issue you resolved could cause all kinds of goofy issues. I highly suggest that you go over every vacuum hose, electrical connector, and bolt or nut that was touched throughout the process. If you had a high idle problem that was IAC related it should throw a code also. Be patient as you are making progress

    TPS and ICM Question

    The connectors to the pcm should have a label on the side of them and the first number on one side correlating to the letter, and the last number on the other side
  10. Welcome to CaddyInfo. First off what happens when you dont pull the headlight switch? I ask this because everything is automatic so long as you have the twilight sentinel set to anything but off. Do your domelamps work properly? And your parking lights? I am trying to narrow to see if the sunload sensor could be faulty. It is located up on the dash in the defroster vent (just forward of the speaker grill) The left one IIRC. Will get more into it depending on your response. There are 2 fuses related to the interior lamps. comfort fuse. 10amp. Located in panel at left rear fuse panel in trunk. It is located directly behind the back seat. interior lamps fuse. located in the underhood electrical center also a 10 amp.

    Yes. Check the voltages at the fuses first before you tear it all apart again. If you find that while running all the fuses show the same voltage or at least within .5 volts of each other then go farther. To ohm the pink wire you would first pull the fuse and verify which side is the input side. It will have 12v with ignition on. You will want to ohm from the other one to the pin at the pcm. Without fuse installed

    last one I had was a freightliner and the Transmission module kept dropping out. All fuses tested good. When plug to TCM was unplugged wire tested good. When plugged in it lacked about 4 volts. So rather than 12 it had 8. That fuse caused a tow bill because when the Transmission module goes down the bus goes nowhere.

    This is on the right track for sure. There is a specific reason I said to replace the fuse. That is because of fatigue. I mention that because I have on multiple occasions had a fuse that tested good but the element was broken off a leg and although testing good on both sides The voltage will be present but not consistent, and worse under load. I had a picture of a fuse with the issue but I would have to find it. Looked normal and tested good but the element was just touching the leg
