Re: Chevelle Upgrades, 2019

Dave, I've been watching the work you have put in on this Chevelle for years now. The transformation is truly remarkable. I love the looks of it with the new paint and interior and I especially like the sound when you fired it up in your last video. I expect/hope that motor will perform beyond your ...

Re: 89 Corvette Mostmint #39

Please tell me that oil filter was left over from when you acquired the car. That can't be a fresh one after the engine work you did? Any thoughts on how all that carbon happened to be there?

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

It's been two weeks since I last saw a P00128 code and related problems. I say it has been fixed by cleaning the engine temperature sensor connector in the block. Next, I'm working on a very slow AC refrigerant leak. It's been a few months since I topped it off last and I've noticed the outlet temps...

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

I'm cautiously optimistic that the engine temp sensor connector was the cause of both these recent problems. I've seen no more of the starting anomalies nor the P0128's with the associated cutoff of the AC.

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

I put a 160° thermostat in there over a year ago until I started seeing the P0128"s. Looking online I saw that some thought that the cause was the low thermostat. Consequently, I put the original thermostat back in. All was OK until now when I began seeing the P0128's again. This brings us up t...

Re: 2008 Trailblazer SS

I installed a new Stant SuperStat that I had bought many months ago (I don't remember why). The SuperStat is different than your normal everyday thermostat.
