    Engine Problems/Maintenance
    QUOTE: "All posts on the web pointed to the Opti." NOPE. Not on this forum it woont have. With just your second two prior sentences I immediately thought FP. Now that you've joined up it might save you some $$$. Like it has the rest of us. lol
  2. Knock Off Coolant Reservoir

    Heating/Cooling/HVAC
    I don't know Mike. Sounds like a pretty sketchy outfit if you ask me: ::winkie dink:: Hey grandpas - , seriously only 2 left. You best jump on this like there's no tomorrow eh. Respectible price to boot.
  3. Key remote no range

    Concerns
    On my 15-20 year old tubs I've always noticed ~5' to the OP's 3'. Sometimes 8' for the trunk, but honestly don't need more than that for anything. I actually prefer shorter range for security. On the other hand the wife's Tribute spud is good for 15', and I'm sure much newer technology cars can...
  4. Front end overhaul kits

    Suspension
    The presumption (which may have roots in prehistoric logic) for buying into bundling may come from assumed economies (and assumed discounts) v. a 1/2 dozen separate orders doing cherry-picking. It worked for me in '00 with the compl. kit for my 1st FWB, where some privateer known to the forum...
  5. Problem with the heater core?

    Engine Problems/Maintenance
    With new HC just a few years ago, only thing might be plug-up again from contaminants using non-distilled water???? Recommend hard clamp and disconnect two hoses, gentle flush HC both directions - just to remove that variable. Otherwise, vacuum hose or electric actuator on diverter door????

    Misc.
    Snipped for point Agree 175% on amending the narrative to a more accurate narrative. And I think you're referring to recent newbs with questions about '60's era Impala door trim and even W-bodies ----- on their very FIRST post no less. Kids are embarrassing themselves right out of the box, --...
  7. What did you do to your Caprice today?

    Caprice
    !Ai caraba! You're back! And that's much more intelligent than stock. So what's in place of the original ones? 6-sp? Nitrous button? hahaha
  8. Front end overhaul kits

    Suspension
    Search is pretty jacked up right now, but that is THE ONLY source I use for confidence of navigating the landmines of dissapointing (and potentially unsafe) purchases for all my cars. There are several sources previously named here for total FE kits. Rock Auto is just one option, though thery...
  9. Knock Off Coolant Reservoir

    Heating/Cooling/HVAC
    I don't own one, and doubt anyone else does - yet. But; Positives 30,000+ sales in 4 years and 99.7%pos Listing shows vendor at least knows correct applications Cheap, for being new. Basically a cheap $10/mo. experiment during warranty anyway Includes "a" cap of some sort You can pay by cc, so...

    You should certainly benefit not only from all the regular B-body info accumulated here over the decades, but also the goldmine of longroof-specific issues. Welcome!

    New Member Introductions
    Read the second stickie under the section you posted in and then get back with us. Twice you've done specifically what is instructed against when making your introductory post, and you've not yet done anything that is requested. And sorry, but the all caps and forward slash as punctuation add...
  12. Decisions

    Drivetrain
    Ouch, I forgot the DS bit. I believe it's 175% consensus that going 3.73 or taller that NOBODY has success with any factory GM DS. But another way to skin that cat without a nice Denny's is extended LCA's and a CV MMC from a JY. But I already gots that on the black car.
  13. Squeaking cooling fan

    Engine Problems/Maintenance
    Tell me 'bout it. Yes, it was the primary: With just 80k on the car I think it helped fail my radiator quicker:
  14. Decisions

    Drivetrain
    OO, a fun logic flow diagram. 1. (250k + 20+ years old) - (stout (but not race-grade) normal oem gears) + smartest business case when everything's apart) = yep, new gears. 2. Sounds like not a 100-mile round trip daily commuter, so yep, 3.73 it is. 3. Since you've ditched the ABS, and unless...
  15. Squeaking cooling fan

    Engine Problems/Maintenance
    3 come to mind- 1. You're dam lucky it didn't fail completely 3 months ago. And stress the radiator since then until finally blowing the sidetank. And leaving you overheated. While evacuating a fire in CA. 2. It's over 20 years old. It's led a valiant life. But it'll never be anything more than...

    I don't what value they are, or the cash surrender value, or how or who assigns them, or even how to amass more of these points, but as any red-blooded American I'ma keep posting and replying until I figure out a way to break this 6-way tie: Mark, Bob, I'm gunnin' fer ya. Next up: Trophies
  19. Not Looking Good

    Misc.
    Forum is ever-spiraling in activity, and not in a good way. Poking around over coffee I see online only a crusty old curmudgeon, a newb, and almost 300 lurkers: I for one intend to ratchet up posting aimless useless new threads in Misk until we get the points and trophies and reaction scores...

    Well, what a revolting development. My original link is dead, and can't edit. Here's the model I was referring to: And here's some of my collection I'm "forcing" on my son:
