PostSubject: Just bought a 97 Rivi   Fri Aug 15, 2008 9:14 am

... about a month ago, beige all the options except for the heated seats. i'll take some pics this evening. just ordered my wood dash and rocker panels, some of the hard to reach interior bulbs need to be replaced, other than that she is a gem. tonight will be her first oil change, i decided to stray from royal purple, which i use in my GP and my Camaro, and go on a friends word about this stuff called red line 10w-40 fully synthetic, also adding about a quart of lucas oil stab., and some max 110 octaine boost.

Now that that is out of the way;
Does anyone know where i might be able to find some new cornering lights? mine are that dreaded yellow, that i've seen on every other rivi.

Also, in park, neutral, and reverse, i can hardly tell that the engine is running, but in drive, it runs a little rough, not "OMG Whats Wrong!?" rough, but just rough. could my TPS Be the culprit, or would it idle rough regardless of the trans pos. if it was the TPS?

Yes, gmpd is your cheapest source, but not cheap, about $40 each. The "w/o" version means it does not actually have a hole in the back and a bulb inside, it's just empty with no function. The "w/cornering" version has a hole in back for the bulb if your car came with the cornering lamps option. Mine did not, they just fill the space.
