Alright well I have been browsing these threads and I am not finding anything pertaining to my exact issues.
I Have owned since winter a 95 Riv SC I picked up off a 90 year old man he bought new. 125,000mi currently.
I have a to do do list-
All struts are bad- No maintenance record for em and the car is skippy on laps in the road or curves with laps. I just dont know if its worth the money to buy the air-ride struts. Opinions on that would be great
SC-Prior owner dumped $700 in the SC at a dealership in january 2011 so I am sure all is well there however I want it it to open up earlier somehow...Any direction to that thread would be great if there is one.
This damn OBD I with a OBD II adapter is pissing me off. DUMBEST IDEA GM EVER HAD! I bought a key to throw codes and apparently its not how you do it. Check engine is intermittent, I am sure its the typical downstream O2 sensor but I am sure there is more to it.
ABS light stays on, Traction control stays on (I want this fixed asap) and dont know where if any relays
Wipers will go slow and medium but on fast they just stop where they are at and dont move...
Cooling fan does not Not turn on however I replaced all 3 bulky $25 relays on the firewall and the fans still dont kick on and I have checked all fuses, even the ones by the bumper and those relays as well.. However when i directly put 12volts on the fan they work so I am having a hard time figuring out why they arent kicking on....Whats the kicker on this issue? (need direction on this badly)
I know I have alot of issues but this car is solid interior and exterior and drive-train _ all new looking/sounding
I have put alot of this off due to the fact that my Motorcycle was all I cared about this summer, Rarely drove the car.
Low coolant light stays on but I know how to cure that problem. Prolly stuck as I see its a common issue.
I replaced the vacuum lines as i noticed the boots were not great and If it anything like my Porsche I know that if one vacuum ls bad they are all outta whack...lol
Just ordered a tear down manual. I dont really find em that helful other than codes. It seems they skip alot of stuff in them...
Any direction on any one item could get me going in the right direction here would be Grand.
What I have done...
I have put a Cold air intake with dual ram air funnels.
180 Stant Stat
New vacuum lines
Strut supports in front and rear, Pointless since they need to be replaced but i got the parts cheap, used.
New Serp Belt
