Re: What size clips hold the air dam under the radiator?

Over cooling will cause you grief in the longer run due to carbonization of the engine and exhaust components. You'll also experience poor gas mileage. When the engine temp reads cool the PCM...

Re: What size clips hold the air dam under the radiator?

Re: 2000 SL1 Need Advice

Start with the ECTS as mentioned. Your model year came from the factory with a resin tipped sensor which is prone to the tip cracking. If this proves the case also look at the connector to ensure...

Re: It's good to be home

Re: Auto slam in DRIVE and reverse

My understanding of the transmission slam or sometimes called "Reverse Slam" it that it is caused by not maintaining the transmission fluid change intervals. The valve body requires relatively clean...

Yes, I have one of those however if I'm going to a yard I would need something battery powered. A sawsall would be tough to get in there. I guess I should shop for a cordless angle grinder if you...

So summer tires are on and the SL2 is all cleaned up from the winter abuse. It hasn't really been driven much in the last year given the circumstances.

Re: Swapping fenders and paint #

In 98 I believe you could also get the pearl white. I've seen them in the 98 Sedans but not sure about the coupes. Pearl white was that same used on the 94 Homecoming SL2.

Re: Cooling system problem?

Re: 1999 SC1 Heater Problem
