Re: 2002 LW300 compressor issue

+1 on the compressor clutch connector. This is low down at the front of the car and takes a ***** kicking. This should be a universal part available at any auto parts store. To check it out, first...

Re: HOW-TO: Replace rear rose bushes (rear knuckle bushes)

My LS1 is now in semi-retirement, still licensed/insured but not a DD. The upper bushings have been replaced, but not the bottoms. On those the rubber seal boots are cracked and crumbling, which...

Re: 2000 LS - TPS problem, but only with A/C use

I didn't check prior to my comment. There would need to be valve incorporated into the connection fitting to allow the sensor to be changed with out refrigerant escaping. It appears this is so as the...

Re: 2000 LS - TPS problem, but only with A/C use

Replacing the AC pressure sensor will require discharging and re-charging the system, which will make the cost of the sensor the small part. I think the connector on the wiring harness should be...

Re: 2000 LS - TPS problem, but only with A/C use

My eyes are getting tired from all this reading. Just a suggestion, but the electrical connector for the TPS should be checked for corrosion. Also, the connector for AC pressure (that one!) should be...

Re: 2001 L series AC/blower problem.

I am not aware of any fuses in the center console. Like FD said, under-hood, left footwell, right footwell. Those are on the side of the footwell next to the door. It looks as if the one you are...

Re: no throttle response

The OP has stated the car is a 2000 LS200. No such name. This must be an LS2, which has the 3.0 Litre V6 and throttle by wire.

Re: L200 02 Fuel pump module question.

Re: L200 5spd Slave Cylinder Woes

It appears that there is a mismatch somewhere in the fit up between the engine, transmission, flywheel, clutch assembly, and slave cylinder. This is allowing the slave to over-extend, resulting in...

Re: L200 5spd Slave Cylinder Woes

Re: 2003 L200 A few general questions

Hi and welcome to our forum. Firstly, from your description I had to figure out that you have the 2.2 liter 4 cylinder engine (L61) with the automatic transmission. This is a somewhat small engine...

Re: Replacing oil pan on L200. What's involved?

A caution against used oil pans. There can be almost invisible cracking in the aluminum. If a pan has had an impact from something kicked up by a tire then it could leak. If going used, make sure you...

Re: 2001 L-200 head rockers broken

If what fdryer said is right then it is time to start searching for a new (used) engine. This is a very curious situation. It appears that the intake valves have seized in the guides. I have never...
