Re: Rear Rotor Replacement

Does the rotor move any at all or is rusted to the hub. If it is stuck the the hub, I have good luck by lightly tapping the rotor between the studs with a ball peen. When the tone changes, you know that the hub and rotor have broken free. If the car is from an area that salts the roads, the drum par...

Re: Speedometer reading slower than actual speed?

What brand of tire? The tire may be a little shorter that the GOODYEAR RSA’s. I doubt you would have speed sensor that is wacky. I could see sensor that would give an intermittent reading, but not out of calibration.

Re: SS Sedan Springs under the 2011 Caprice PPV

You should be able to read the part number of the rear strut with a small mirror and a flashlight while the car is on the ground. The number should be below the lower spring support, facing outward. Since my post on page 5, I have acquired a 12 and 13. After driving one or the other to work for a co...

Re: exhaust rattle

I have a 2013 that made noise around the converter area. It seemed to be worse when it was cold. You could push up on the pipe right behind the converter and the noise would go away. I took the car in for the fuel pump recall, which required the exhaust to be dropped. After I got it back, the noise ...

Re: Oil pressure sensor range / oil pressure sensor

I believe there is a GM technical bulletin on using a different AC filter. I did a quick Google search, but I did not have any luck. I think the replacement flows better. I have been using the PF48E’s without any issues. A high end scan tool will show the oil pressure. The last driveable car that I ...

Re: TPMS reset procedure

I am with leadfart on this one. I used to do the relearning by letting the air out on my 11-13’s , but it is a pain if the car happens to be too far for the air hose to reach. A buddy of mine bought one of the cheapy tools off of eBay and it works great. I need to buy one and give his back to him.

Re: 2013 Caprice 9C3 L77, Dickinson, TX

The last two 9C3’s that Galveston County auctioned off brought top dollar. This one will do the same. My adult supervisor said I will have to get rid of 2 of the 9C1’s on the driveway if I get a wild hair to bid on this one.

Re: Polution mode ?

Never have tried using the pollution mode to see how it acted. With the Texas heat and humidity, I never take mine off of recirculate. I like cold air, not cool air.

Re: Recall: HF Pittspurgh Jack Stands

When I was in the auto parts business about 20 years ago, I carried a cheap set of ratcheting jack stands that were imported. Had to have a cheap set to compete against the chain stores. It had a label that warned against getting under the car while supported with the stands. Makes you question the ...

Re: WTB: 91-96 9C1

I have a white 96 Caprice with the LT1 that I need to sale, but I have just not taken the time to do it yet. It is NOT a 9C1, but it does have the trailer tow package that gets you the 11" rear brakes and a 3.08 posi. It is a rust free Texas car.
