Re: Tracking down an oil leak...

I second the oil pressure switch as a possible culprit. With the Teflon seals they use, the failure rate should be fairly lower. I would pull trans before I would drop the cradle. The first car I bought had engine damage which required me to pull the engine and trans as an assembly. I did not want t...

Re: P0157 trouble code help?

If the output of the sensor did not change from the time you started the car through the warm up time, it sounds like a dead sensor, unless you have a wiring/connection problem. I would just swap the after cat sensors and see if it readings follow the sensor. If the fixed reading moves to the other ...

Re: P0157 trouble code help?

Need to get ahold of a scan tool that reads data. Take a look at what the other bank is reading and see if the readings are close to each other or if there is a drastic difference. The other method would be to swap the post cat sensor to the other bank and see if it sets a code for that bank. David C.

Re: WTB. c3 hub caps

Contemplating refinishing or just sell as is if and when I ever get around to getting the Holden wheels mounted. If you decide to get rid of your old covers, I might be interested in them. I bead blasted a set of covers and painted them with some Krylon metallic paint that is suitable for plastic. ...

Re: WTB Laptop Mount

I have a couple of partial mounts that I wouldn't mind getting rid of. I believe one is just the mounting bracket that fits under the seat brackets and the other is the mount plus the upright post, but no mounting plate for a lap top. It will be Sunday before I can get a picture and manufacturer of ...

Re: Are there any Fuseable links to prevent starting

I don't remember seeing any when I gutted the 2013 donor car. Most of the car makers have done away with them and just use high amperage fuses in the fuse block. Do all of the interior/exterior lights work and does all of the accessories work when the ignition switch is in the run position? I am ass...

Re: RED FU@KING ALERT!!! 2011 9C3 low miles gold

I should get rid of two 9C1's and upgrade to the 9C3 but it looks too nice to abuse and I kind of enjoy exercising the 6.0 from time to time.

Re: 2014 front seat removal

On the 2011-2013's, there is a rubber sleeve that you have to slide down on the tensioning device and remove the torx bolt that holds the belt to the tensioner. Again, not sure on the 2014's.

Re: 2012 part out

Were the air bags deployed in the car? If not, I may be interested on the front set belts. I have a flood car that may need them.

Re: 2014 front seat removal

On the 2011-2013 you have to remove the bolts on the back of the rails and then lift the back of the seat up to "roll" the front "hooks" out of the slots in the floor pan. Once you get the back of the seat so high, you will then need to pull back on the seat assembly to get it out of the slots. I am...
