  1. I have to laugh about the numerous chipmunks i have here! They filled the trunk of my old Buick rat with the chesnuts off of the big tree in my back yard. I guess the mothballs or cat didnt work so good! I gotta do something with this old girl. She runs so good but a rotted engine cradle took her off the road. This is my new rat for blizzard season fresh from Fla.
  2. I just have a few gallons real gas in the tank with a dose of Sta-Bil and disconnect the battery. Yea as far as critters...out here in the country I use moth balls, spring traps, glue boards as well as a HUNGRY cat no matter if they are in the garage, barn or on the driveway waitin' for spring! Most will start right up!
  3. 2nd gear starts you say? Hmmm......My 93 starts in 1st as normal with unit/fuses/bulb disconnected. Diff. in years possibly? BTW: The unit in my 93 Buick rat disabled also with no 2nd gear start either.
  4. My unit has also failed on my 93. I just pulled the fuse and the dash light. Otherwise my brakes work normally and I know how to stop the "old fashioned" way too! I just replaced my front pads and rotors also. I know the pain of finding a replacement unit!
  5. WOW! So simple a repair to kill a aggravating problem!
  6. Hmmmm.......... Having this same issue with rear lights on my 03 s-10. No dash lights untill you turn on the courtesy light switch. right side signal and tail lights dim and flashes fast. Also right side license plate light lights up and dim. This just started as the right tail was out. With all the issues I figured the added polack trailer plug/wiring was messed up and caUsing the light issues. Removed Polak plug Was installed on the factory 5 wire trailer plug wiring. No cuts or butchering otherwise.................. Clean Fla. fresh n
  7. Racin" model with that chrome flash! Following!
  8. Roc........Not sure what he used to defeat the cat codes. He called it a "cheater". Whatever .......it passed the NY emission plug in. But now it has a 449? code popped up afterwards. Gotta check all the lines and the 2 "valves" to see if they are working. I was figuring the rubber hoses may be rotted off or gone just like the rubber 4wd vac. hoses were also. 3 huge skidplates to remove to get at anything under there and inspect again. There is a good vid on u-tube to test the valves operation. SES lights dont bug me anyhoo as the gauges tell the story
  9. You ever have any NY Emiss./SES lights/problems when you changed/mod the existing exaust?
  10. Following........... The only pesky thing is NY plug in "Emission Inspection" and the SES lights!! Having a issue with a s-10 I bought in Fla. and drove back to NY. Cat and tank vapor PO codes. Put a "cheater" on the converter and solved that code! Stock rustfree exaust all emission junk in place.. Now to the vapor code................
  11. Ran on starting fluid? Im thinkin' low fuel pressure and need a proper test! ADD a misfire to that..................... Multiple issues........Crank engine and check for spark on each cyl. also. NO backfire at all either on Starting fluid? Then timing mark check.
  12. Have you checked the relays that are on the right side cowl area underhood under the removable panel? Could one of those be blown and not supplying power to the compressor? Sorry cant post a pic cuz its too big.
  13. Heres a link to my Deville heater core flush and pics of the 3 way "tee":
  14. No prob.! Another thing to mention is if that 3 way "tee" is installed in-correctly you will also have weak heat. It seems one of the tee ends is restricted in some way to reduce the water flow. Check to see if your tee is the original. Look at the hose clamps. prob. if they are the new worm/screw clamps its been replaced. Did u try to flush the core? Sorry i dont have pics to post cuz i got a new laptop and they arent on it yet. Check my old heater core post for pics of my Deville install. Your Fleet may be similar!
  15. BTW: Heat should NOT blow out the dash vents only when the a/c mode is selected will air come out the dash vents. Also depending on what temp is selected and warm a/c air will blow out the dash vents. Heat/defrost mode air will only come out the defrost vent or floor. Thats the way my Deville works so your Fleet should be the same.
