Re: Parting out LW300

Going through my old LW stuff, I've got 2 V6 oil filters to the first comer for postage, or pick-up in Santee for those in Socal.

Re: Parting out LW300

17 years and 175,000 miles and now she's off to Cars for Vets. She was a total PITA, but I will miss her.

Re: Parting out LW300

Runs, but you're not driving it away. Needs a radiator, front engine mount and brakes. Front crank seal leaks, tranny's got a very slow leak somewhere. Body's in good shape, interior is fair. 2 of...

Re: Is it possible to repair a BCM?

Sure, a BCM can be fixed.
Pull the BCM and build a fixture to input all the correct power and data inputs into the BCM.

Re: Is the L-Series Really that Bad?

Re: Serpentine Tensioner Pulley Advice 3.0

Why not just replace the whole tensioner assembly, not much more expensive than just the pulley and bearing, and the tensioner spring probably needs replacement anyway if the bearing's bad

Re: Twim charged l200

The 4T-40E is only good up to about 190 ft lbs before you start blowing parts out the side. Recommend you do some upgrades there too.

Re: '01 LW parts

Old control arm out, new control arm in (with a bit of fidgeting and pounding cause the forward mount was tweaked a bit). Just need to get it aligned now.

Re: 2000 LW2 3.0 Auto Trans Problem

If you're gonna drop the pan to change the fluid and filter, might as well change the Pressure Control Solenoid (OCS) while you're in there. Known problem and can cause the symptoms you've described.

Re: 2000 LW2 3.0 Auto Trans Problem

Russet,

Not to nitpick, but it says "auto trans" in the title and the 3.0's didn't come with a manual, ever.

Skier,

As stated, first thing to do is check the fluid level.

Yes, the rear tail light assembly and as I recall the burn spots are about the size of a pencil eraser and you just have to bend the metal plate a little so the 2 plates don't touch. No, the center...
