Could someone please fix the email notification that says we have received a PM. Got a lot going down and with this communication breakdown, it looks like I or him are ignoring each other. Please review

Hey, its been awhile since ive been on. Hope you all are well. Just got recall 15757 done today for my 01 Regal GS. Now if only a recall would come in for my faulty ignition switch.

@  WeBlown : (14 September 2016 - 04:15 PM)

Haven't been here in a while, my condolences to our lost member and his family.

@  jmaechtlen : (10 September 2016 - 04:58 AM)

thanks! funny that anyone selling rod inserts doesn't also offer the bolts, since you're supposed to replace the bolts whenever you take it apart.

@  tippietoejoe : (07 September 2016 - 12:59 AM)

forgot that the enter key sends rather than spaces between lines...lol

@  tippietoejoe : (07 September 2016 - 12:58 AM)


@  tippietoejoe : (07 September 2016 - 12:58 AM)

you should be able to get rod bolts at the dealer. You can also find them online aswell here is a cutaway for you and the bolt GM part number.

@  jmaechtlen : (06 September 2016 - 07:18 PM)

are stock rod bolts a dealer item, or does someone carry them?

OK need a conformation here.
This happens irregularly. No correlation to hitting bumps or any thing else.

On the dash, I'll get the full "Christmas lights", reset the gages and the Ding, ding, ding..... Then back to normal. Car stays running. ( crosses fingers as panic sets in )

It's just started doing this, this past week, Maybe once or twice a day.

Bad Battery connection?
Ignition switch / key tumbler?

I don't remember which.

Who has "fixed this" Ign. switch by spraying contact/Maf cleaner in there?

Exactly what mine did when the ignition switch went out. I have not done the cleaning myself (just the replacement), but there is at least one good article here (or a link to clubgp) that goes through the clean up routine.
I have taken one apart though, and will say that you do need to take care. Even though the parts are all relatively large (as compared to a watch?), but are finicky enough that you would want to have steady hands and a good memory for where they all go. Or take pictures as you go.

But the symptom is definitely the same as my switch. It really would rear up when I would use the turn signal switch, and only killed the engine after it had been doing it for a few weeks.
On the other hand, my '03 LS gave no prior warning when it went out and just literally died out of the blue going down the freeway. Oddly enough, when the GS finally gave out I was going down the freeway too. I guess it just "knows" when you're in an awkward spot.

Did this happen before you did your extensive engine work? I would check all my grounds and power feeds before I condemn an ignition switch.
