@  fastbuick25 : (22 July 2015 - 04:15 AM) hey
@  99RegalClone : (20 July 2015 - 07:21 AM) @scottydoggs98, thanks. i will try that and see if it works.
@  scottydoggs98 : (20 July 2015 - 04:29 AM) you really just need to heat up the ends of the chips there. they will re stick properly. i did mine a second time and added a dot of solder to each side of the chips
@  99RegalClone : (20 July 2015 - 03:13 AM) i havent tried to solder so i may screw it up
@  scottydoggs98 : (19 July 2015 - 12:14 PM) wow chat buster of a linl lol
@  scottydoggs98 : (19 July 2015 - 12:14 PM) ff to 2:50 he does the climate control
@  99RegalClone : (18 July 2015 - 06:45 PM) anyone know of someone that can fix a digital climate control? mine lights up but not able to see the temp or anything.
@  scottydoggs98 : (07 July 2015 - 09:39 PM) i wear 3X gloves. i know what you mean lol that being said, mines only got one screw holding it in. the other one can lick my nuts lol
@  RegalTraveler : (07 July 2015 - 04:55 PM) Yup. That's the one I replaced. It was a pain. Honestly not sure my hand would have fit through there if I weren't so hot and sweaty the day I did it.
@  scottydoggs98 : (07 July 2015 - 01:46 PM) http://www.grandprix...tor-Replacement says gp, but its the same damn thing. ive battled with them a lot over the years.
@  scottydoggs98 : (07 July 2015 - 01:45 PM) the blend doors control the hot and cold air. or the mix of both. they are electric.
@  RegalTraveler : (07 July 2015 - 01:27 PM) are there other blend doors for the cabin besides the two for driver and passenger? The defroster runs on vaccum, I know that b/c I temporarily disabled it while swapping out this blender.
@  RegalTraveler : (07 July 2015 - 01:26 PM) the d/s blend door is the one i replaced.
@  scottydoggs98 : (07 July 2015 - 01:07 PM) r/t your blend door actuator likely took a dump, take it off and turn the knob by hand. or try resetting them by pulling the hvac fuse for a minute and putting it back in.
@  RegalTraveler : (06 July 2015 - 10:18 PM) Here's a question for you guys. A while back I had the iconic issue of not getting cold air on the drivers side, while getting cold air on the passenger side. I finally replaced the D/S actuator and it was cracked.
But now I'm having in issue where my car only pumps out slightly cool air and it takes quite a while to even get that. Hooked up the R134 guages and the number looked relatively okay. We went ahead and put in a little more. The pump runs, but the low-side pressure never dropped and now there's about 90lb on the low-side.
Swapped out the exterior temp sensor and no change.
Any thoughts?
@  Daddy4barrel : (05 July 2015 - 01:33 AM) getting hot too
@  Daddy4barrel : (05 July 2015 - 01:31 AM) had to change heater hose to heater core
@  Daddy4barrel : (05 July 2015 - 01:31 AM) both radiator hoses collapse. air in system?
@  buck531 : (01 July 2015 - 05:50 PM) nevermind. figured it out.

Going through the pulleys I have been trying to figure out where this annoying squeeking has been comming from. Well it came down to changing the tensioner pulley out and it didn't fix the issue so i now just replaced the alternator but it still didn't fix the issue =(. While I was installing the alternator I noticed that while putting pressure onto the idler pulley to remove the belt, I kept hearing the squeek again, so im going to go with the idea that the issue is the tensioner itself.

Does anyone know where i can get a good used one ? Maybe a member here may have one !!

And maybe a general walk through with installing the part, I honestly need to get this part replaced ASAP because im sick of hearing the squeek.

the idler is easy to replace, just remove it by removing the bolt on the face and put on the new one. First take the belt off by releasing the tension on the tensioner with a wrench. This will be a good time to put a new belt on, not absolutely necessary but its good piece of mind and cheap so might as well do it. there is a diagram of the belt routing on a sticker that is in the engine compartment. this will be handy when it comes time to put the belt back on.

when it comes to pulleys, i do not recommend getting a used one. they are cheap enough that a used one doesnt make sense. esp since you dont know how many miles the used one has, it can go any day. do it right or do it twice! check rockauto, i bet you find a brand new one just as cheap as a used one.

I also recommend replacing it asap. a squealing idler means failure is eminent, and if its the acc belt if that goes you lose power steering, water pump, and alternator. not something you want happening when you're on the road.
