Hi all. Decade is coming to a close... I'm feeling a little old!

@  M_Dogg : (05 December 2019 - 11:20 PM)

Cheers!

Hi there. Some of us are working to keep these cars alive and running. Glad you had a good 15 year run.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:39 AM)

Every time I see an Old Buick I have major respect for it. I know what kind of torque these cars make.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:38 AM)

I sold my 2002 GS back in 2017. She was falling apart all over the place. So I sold her and bought a 2017 Focus RS in 2017.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:37 AM)

Hi Everybody.

@  ejguillot : (15 November 2019 - 08:19 PM)

Anybody get on here anymore?

@  ejguillot : (01 November 2019 - 02:23 AM)

It should be possible, you might want to get a surplus connector so you can hook the fan motor to a battery.

@  Greg2000GS : (01 November 2019 - 01:58 AM)

cooling fan suspect. Is there a way to test it by jumping connector?

@  Fast86GN : (31 October 2019 - 01:23 PM)

I'm here....

@  ejguillot : (27 October 2019 - 01:39 PM)

Let's try to bring this forum back to life a bit... I'll be on fairly often (now that my project Regal is seeing some progress).

So long story short Christine the GS tried to kill me. Got a new 07 Lacrosse. L26/4t65e non HD, think Lesabre. Ok this is my first trip into dbw setups. Little background I live at 6100 ft,everything is either all up hil or all downhill from me. So took the car on a quick errand to 4500 ft and back to 6100. Car saw very frequent 4 to 8.5+ knock. The only "mod" I've done is 180* tstat and OEM plugs. I looked to try and read the tune tonight it reads as a 2005 lacrosse but is corrupt and cant be opened. Car has 91k I'm debating if the trans is causing the issue. Going up a grade it will not kick down into 3rd and kr spikes to 8.5 to 8.75 if I unlock the converter manually it will finally kick down and kr settles to the 4 range. Mileage is 20ish hwy.

It being an 07 fuel filter is in tank and technically non serviceable
Computer is non tunable
Car has a 2 yr warranty and I know as soon as that is over is when the trans will shell lol.
I'm grasping for anything, any idea how to either kill it under warranty or prolong life and bring back mpg and power that 9* of kr destroys.
Gut the air box?
Port an upper manifold and lower?
Have a 2.5 in dp fabbed up?
Put in a shift kit?
Fluid and filter swap on the trans?

Any ideas or stories u have heard on the new cars would be appreciated. It wont be a bad car once the kinks get worked out. Its already the favorite go to car for gatherings.

Greg, I'm no expert by any means but why is the PCM not tuneable? Any codes in history? Do you what your fuel pressure is?

Little update, it was a bad batch of plugs causing the issue. New autolite plugs and it works alot better, trans is getting worse. New Don Rome stb brackets and front and rear. Next minor upgrade is impala SS dual piston calipers, tubular trailing arms and 9c1 sways. Might spring for a plog too. Looks like a dp would have to be a custom job too.
