  1. Slips and vibrates when driving? Fluid full? Fluid bright pink or dark and burnt smelling? If so.....RUN away! Tranny rebuilds on these can be $pendy.
  2. No new Devilles in the parts yards. Dam...........I should of scored the front door panels off the 2 that were at my local yard last month! They went off to the crusher. Ordered my re-man BCM from Rock Auto for $83. Waiting for delivery..............
  3. Yea..........I guess rollin the dice on a almost 30 yo. electronic part is dicey but for $11 bucks! Gonna check the yards again cuz maybe they have some new victims.
  4. Around 210 is normal operation temp. Was the coolant you bought premixed or 50/50? It will be posted on the label............ If so no need to drain any out. Even if it WASNT pre-mixed it will be fine also because it will be diluted by the existing antifreeze/coolant in the car. Your car should be Dex-cool anyway. Dex-cool should be pre-diluted anyhoo................
  5. Well NO Dice on a used BCM at my local yards! One yard had a 91 but I sure couldnt find it! I didnt leave empty handed tho cuz I scored a Washer bottle/pump assem. for my s-10 for $13 bucks. I guess its Rock auto for a reman for $80................
  6. DAM! Think my $11 pic a part BCM has failed again! Fuel and climate displays are dark and no HVAC operation. I still have my old BCM and even tho the displays are dark the functions still work. So gonna pull the glovebox and plug in the old BCM and see if HVAC functions work and if so its off to the local PIP yard for another $11 BCM ! Maybe I should of bought the $75 reman BCM back then? The local PIC yard has 4 baby lacs so another BCM wont be hard to get. Its been 90+ daily here near Syracuse so need that cold breeze when ridin' dirty! My s-10 still has cold a/c so Im riding cool............ No fun drivin' her Neon car...........
  7. Not a clue why it runs. BUT my climate and gas guages went dark yesterday! BCM died? I thought I smelled something electrical burning. Gotta pull the glovebox and plug in my old BCM to check that this new old replacement has failed. (the old BCM the climate functions work but no guage display)
  8. My 93 Devilles level system works when the car is off. I just wonder if it works just because its tied into the light delay after the key is turned off?
  9. Well..........I guess my $35 used climate control is failing. This one will go dark with no functions and at times come alive after I shut off ignition and open the door then restart. So my local pic a part yard has 2 Devilles . I need the CCC and dark blue screw covers for the roof grab handles. Maybe grab the 2 front door panels/armrests too.
  10. The labels on my failed Caddy and 84 Z-28 am/fm/cass. units state they were made in Kokomo Ind.
  11. From posts elsewhere i see those years factory Delco am/fm/tape and cd even the Bose fail a lot! Funny...........My failed cass. unit was Indiana USA made! The local Delco service center near me wanted $100 just to look at it ! (United Radio in Syracuse) I bought the car in Fla. with a bad radio and bought a ghetto blaster for tunes on the trip back home to NY. I had a couple working Delco am/fm/cd units on the shelf and installed it. caddy radio.jfif
  12. WOW! What a tuff DIY job. What do you figure that job would cost at a shop?

  15. BTW: The pulldown motor in my 93 Deville has been disabled in the closed position. Must have been a prev. owner mod and broke. It used to kill me bell hops/valet folks SLAM the trunk lid on my Caddys or T/A ! I would say calmly "close it easy...dont slam it!"
  16. If you need parts remember most 82-92 camaro/firebirds used the same pull down motor. Check www.thirdgen.org for repair pics/etc. https://www.top-downsolutions.com/hatch-pull-down-items
  17. Check out : www.steeringcolumnservices.com All the pics/tips/parts.
  18. Prob. gonna cost sum big money to replace bulbs as the only Delco/GM repair auth. I know of is www.unitedradio.com Some of them old delco units may have bulbs that you can get to with a little disassembly. Prob. some vids on line too......... I would hunt the pic n pull for a Delco am/fm/cd used replacement. Prob. $50 bucks Plug n Play ...DIY
  19. Amen on that Rock! I got 6 cars to keep ridin' dirty on the cheap!
  20. Happy to say my $11 pic n pull BCM still workin' fine! Also my replacement glove box light plunger too! Now goofin' off in Fla. for a bit and it sure is HOT n MUGGY unlike backhome in NY!
  21. Yea its only got 29k miles, auto, cold a/c . BUT it drives crappy, no tilt or cruise...... UGH!
  22. Yea, $11 bucks and got me the glovebox lite n pushbutton, handle covers, trunk release button, a few relays and those big fuses under the hood. Got a shiny new alt. for my s-10 all for $44 bucks. FDC and CCC , chimes, etc all working. New BCM just plugged in and sittin' in glovebox hole till I am sure it works then I can re-assemble. Just glad I could disconnect the BCM wires and hook up new unit to see if it cured the problem. BTW: New/used alt. cured my s-10s intermittant no charge issues also! NOW I can head to Fla. and soak up some sun for a week or so and drive my girls POS Dodge Neon back to NY for the summer. (pray 4 me!)
  23. UPDATE: Had to go to the local pic a part yard for a glovebox light switch, grab bar covers and for $11 bucks a BCM for my Deville and a alt. for my s-10. Since I have read posts on the fuel and climate controls going dark and inop., no chimes I figured I would replace the BCM. I just left the old BCM in place, removed plugs then plugged in new unit and let it rest in glovebox hole to test. EVERYTHING works! Display, chimes etc! Will leave the new BCM that way for a couple days to make sure the problem is solved then reassemble correctly.
  24. Hey all! My 93 Deville is having a intermittent fuel center and climate control going dark. They will reappear if I shut off car, open and close door (to reset the light timer) and restart car. I note the fender guide lights also dont work along with the key and lights on chimes. Fuses ok, swapped relays and maxi fuses around also. Body Control Module dying?
  25. Its all still GM factory untouched except for the heater core hoses. No overheating. Still haven measured temps at heater core. STILL gotta hit up Harbor Freight for one of those insta. temp guns. to check. Winter rat heat cranks!
