Re: Carpet swap.

The sedan carpets fit the coupes so I don't see why a coupe carpet won't fit a coupe.

Re: Diver's side leak.... looks like ATF

People can't be bothered to check the fluid level in a manual transmission so they don't realize they all come with one. The S-Series one is "buried" under the battery box, totally reachable from the...

Re: Diver's side leak.... looks like ATF

I was going to say...the MP6/MP7 case is virtually identical to the MP2/MP3 case and doesn't have any room for a pan.

Re: Diver's side leak.... looks like ATF

If the diff pin was loose enough to crack the transmission case, it'd have made some kind of noise before/during/after.

I'd start with giving the trans filter a spin, should be torqued on the same...

Re: 94 SL2 HCE Foggy glass inside

Try the A/C button. Doubtful it'll work as '90's era GM A/C wasn't worth installing any more than 90's era GM ABS but A/C is a great way to remove moisture when it actually works.

Fairly common when the idler pulley bearing fails or some chucklehead goes full ugga-dugga on the bolt. There's no spacer for the pulley, just a boss thats machined out of the TC cover for it to ride...

Re: Rear suspension bolts

I've taken apart worse, without heat. May not have been "factory safe in a crash" to reuse but they torqued up fine.

Re: 1999 yellow SC2

If the underside isn't rotted out, finding & swapping a motor is too easy to junk the car over.

Re: Control Arms Replacement - Tips & Tricks wanted

Rubber bushings only have so much "swing". If you do the dumb thing and tighten them with the suspension at full droop then they only have about 1/2 a swing before they bind up and cause a problem.

Re: Alignment Shim - minus what degrees?

There's nothing on the S-Series that those will do anything useful for. Get the bolts, those will actually do something.
