Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

I had started to detect a slight shudder when braking, so I decided to take a close look at the brakes. It had been 56K miles and 7 years since they were last serviced. The pads, both front and rear were down to 1/4 inch thickness. I decided that this was a good time to tackle the job. I measured th...

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

I was thinking of this fire and how you put it out with your shirt. Then I wondered about a fire blanket rather than an extinguisher. I'm not sure what comes out of an extinguisher, but you might not want to find out, that after the fire, you have a substantial cleanup and possible damage from the c...

Fred, it looks like you might get a little taller after wearing that neck brace. :mrgreen:

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

It was over 90° today, so I decided to add some R134a to the TBSS AC system. A few months ago, I had bought an oil/dye injector setup for my AC gauges. I added 1/2 oz of dye and about four cans of R134 before I was able to feel 32° coming from my dash vents. This time I know the dye went into the sy...

Re: Spring Carlisle 2020

I can't make the new dates. It's our wedding anniversary and we have made other plans.

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

I'm still experiencing an AC system leak. I've injected dye, but can find no evidence of a leak except for a loss of refrigerant. It's a good thing I have my built-in, low refrigerant indicator noise. When I'm low on R134, I start to hear a whistling noise. After I top it off, the noise goes away. I...

GM, 5 hours is a full day for me when I spend it under the truck. :lol:
Maverick offered to help, but this is a one man job no matter how you look at it.

Starter problem

Last week the TBSS starter began to act wonky. It would engage but then drop out, engage again over and over. Just to make sure it was not a battery problem, I put in a new battery, but the problem remained. Then I swapped out the starter relay and the same symptoms occurred again. Now it was time t...

Re: Spring Carlisle 2020

Fred, your assumin' looks good to me at this point in time. I have a few balls in the air for April that could cause me to cancel this year. I won't know until close to Carlisle time.
