Re: 2000 SL2 transmission clunk

Not really an automatic guy but I've read enough to know what's going on. The start of "reverse slam" is caused by sludge in the passages of the valve body caused by poor maintenance. The passages...

Re: I'm back - now 1996 SL2 won't start, smell gas

Strong smell of gas and no start would indicate a flooding situation (I'd think). This would indicate to me that you have no spark for ignition. Check your coils, spark plug wires and spark plugs....

Re: [2001 SL2] Losing coolant, but only when A/C is running?

I can't think of any direct relationship between the AC and the coolant level. The coolant does nothing from an AC perspective.

If I recall the AC system in the S Series has a variable compressor...

Re: Your favorite tires?

+1 for RT43's but I run Michelin X-ICE 2 for winters. RT43's are well rated and are decently priced. Michelin's are also well rated but not decently priced.

Re: Premium Guard fuel filters any good?

I ordered one too. The box says to replace every 12 months or 15,000KM/10,000 Mi. This interval is about 1/10th of the OEM. I have not installed it yet.

@SW1Canuck - any update on yours?

Re: AC Compressor Used vs. Reman or New

The 4 rear HVAC lines for my Suburban use these compression fittings when the lines need to be replaced. From the factory the lines are continuous front to back and are about 12 feet. When they...

Re: Im back <3 with a fun one

Here's what the inside looks like and what gets clogged up.

Perhaps your engine is running rich causing carbonization. Carbonization in the engine and exhaust is common in these cars when you...

Re: Im back <3 with a fun one

You have a GEN3 (2000-2002)? Your precat which is part of the exhaust manifold is plugged. You'll need to remove the manifold an rip out the core of the precat to regain flow. I've heard you can...

Re: Just Picked up a 99 SW1

There's no timing belt. They use a timing chain and it is pretty hardy. It'll rattle on the case if it is loose and signal it's demise well before actually breaking.

Re: Premium Guard fuel filters any good?

Less than $20 CAD. Seems too good to be true.

Re: FSM picture of front brake caliper hose routing?

The caliper needs to come off and be rotated 360 degrees to make the brake line tuck in behind the strut rear facing.

By same problem do you mean no reverse or 5th gear? Did you follow all the troubleshooting that was given. Work your way from the gear selector to the transmission shift tower to rule them out...

Replaced the original starter on the 99 SL2 today when it wouldn't start for my daughter at school. Not bad, almost 23 years and 301K KM on it. We push started the car a couple times today until we...

Re: Water Leak in Headliner Area

I'm not sure. It was just an observation based on my experience. I'd pull the head liner and see what's going on underneath. You'll be able to see both the sunroof and the seals at the doors and...

Re: Water Leak in Headliner Area

That's the exact place where water pooled when I left my sunroof open and it rained through the night. Water pooled there and left a water stain. My sunroof is fully operational and does not leak.
