  1. Yeah the 94-96 are definitely better looking. I love how the rear tire is partially covered. Inside is better looking too in my opinion. I have an AM/FM/CD stereo from I think a 93 or 95 Seville. Too bad I couldn't just slap that in. It worked great back when I took it out.
  2. Well it doesn't look as good as it does in the pics anymore. No more Vogue tires and no center caps on the wheels and the rear passenger door is still caved in from the drunk driver that hit me back in 2017. It's still a good looking car though. Pretty sure it's days are numbered though. LOL.. So the wife said the radio didn't work at all, but I just think that the volume was down all the way. I was wondering what would happen if I just unplug the steering wheel controls all together? But I guess I can't do that because of the stupid airbag.. LOL The Vogues I got from Cardio-Doc years ago
  3. The shop didn't find the problem. Intermittent problem and never any codes. I picked up a new coil and was gonna swap them out one by one to see if that would work. Went on YouTube and found a video of a guy testing them and I went out and did what he did in the video and found one coil was weak. I swapped it out and the car runs fine now. But this car has a lot of problems. The steering wheel controls for the radio and A/C don't work. At times the radio will change stations on it's own and the volume would either go all the way down or blasting all on it's own. Same with the A/C, temp would g
  4. OK, so the code did clear. I did it wrong the first time. I cleared it days ago and the problem is still there. It was real bad a couple days ago and then last night it was fine. It's coming and going. I rechecked the codes and still no codes coming up. The popping sounds like it's coming from the engine. Maybe Throttle body area. Car would also stutter real bad when you really give it gas. Right now it's in the shop and it's not doing it for them now either. But that's how it usually goes..
  5. Hey folks, long time no post. Question, on my 96 Deville, I kinda feel a little miss in it. If I'm sitting at a light it'll run smooth and then all of a sudden kinda stutter and then clear up. Also, if I hit the gas hard it'll backfire/pop. That's the only way I can describe it. At first I thought bad coil pack, but it's not like I remember a bad coil pack would do. I can't see the onboard computer codes because the dash lights went out again. I used a Actron code reader and the only code I get is a P1634. Any ideas? Thanks!
  6. Yeah, been out of commission for a while and didn't get back to it till a couple weeks ago. I'd like to know what the problem is, but I'm just at the point where I just don't want to mess with it anymore. I put it on Craigslist a little over a month ago with the pics I have of the car all cleaned up before the damage and then two of the damage and mentioned the extremely hight idle and listed it for $1,200 OBO. The next morning I had almost 20 messages on it. A few were bogus, but most were interested. So if it stays this way when I'm ready to move on I'll list it for real.. Better than scrap
  7. Yes, I re cleaned the TB and checked the return spring and all was good. The throttle cable was moving freely. I took the car to another mechanic just to ask them about a repair I need for the wifes car and they heard the high idle and looked at the car real quick. They ended up using that "Kent Moore tool - J-37027-A" that Logan was talking about and lowered the idle on it and now it idles at around 600 to 700 RPM's with the A/C on and I'm leaving the IAC unplugged and it's been fine. They did it for free. So it's been a week and I can live with it for now. Still need the car so if it stays
  8. Winterset, yes, I have cleaned it and that didn't work. Then I replaced it and still have the problem. So unless I got a bad one, I'm guessing that's not the problem. I wish that was it because this is driving me crazy.
  9. OK, gonna take a few days or so to get to this. Not even gonna hint as to what the heck happened to me today.. All I can say is WOW! oh, and OUCH! LOL... I'll be back.. Thanks again guys!
  10. Yes! It's really bad. When I got home and put the car in park it jumps up to 3000 + then when I restart it right away it starts around 800 to 1000.. When I first started the car it started at around 1500 cold start. Most of the time if I restart the car when sitting at a light the idle will drop down a lot.
  11. Yes, the switches light up, but they don't work anymore. The radio will change stations by itself and the volume will go up or down by itself. The A/C will change the temps to opposite of what is set. If I have it set to 60 it'll go to 90 and vise versa. Same with the fan. If it's on high, it'll go low and vise versa. Never had the airbag out or the steering wheel touched. I'll check the cables tomorrow.. Thanks!
  12. OK, Guys, sorry I disappeared for a while, but I was mega sick. Feeling a lot better now, so I'm gonna get back at this a little. Now, let me just say that I noticed earlier today when I hit the gas a few times it felt like the gas pedal was stuck. When I cleaned that TB it was spotless when I was done. There was nothing anywhere around the "butterfly?" that it would stick to. That sucker was spotless. So next week I'm gonna check the cables.. I don't think the cruise control even works anymore, so can I leave that cable off, or does it need to be on?? The only current codes it has is stil
  13. Spent 30 mins with brake cleaner trying to find anything and again nothing. The idle is so erratic that I can't really tell if I'm hitting the spot or not. What about testing to see if there is power going to the IAC and the TPS? This car's got me beat.
  14. Yes, I saw this. But I sprayed that down with the starting fluid and it did nothing at all. Wouldn't it bog down when sprayed? I hit it pretty good with that stuff.. Although I did it on a cold motor, not when it was real hot..
