Just got my GS back on the road. Wife is pressuring me to sell it... don't know if I want to or not

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).

@  ejguillot : (27 October 2019 - 01:38 PM)

#364683 MBA

Posted by ejguillot on 13 July 2013 - 02:38 AM

Think very carefully before getting an MBA. You'll run up heavy student loan debt, and without a few years of relevant experience you may well end up in an even worse catch 22 than you are now. Been there, done that.

#356342 Upgrades in progress

The lateral arms might be worth doing if you can get them for a good price.

Read this: http://www.jalopyjou...ad.php?t=350800 regarding the acetone/ATF mix. I tried it and now it's all I use. Squirt it on with a 5cc syringe (the type you get at the drug store for liquid cold medication). Both fluids are fairly cheap for the quantity, give it a shot.

Mine were no fun too. 6 ohio winters...

Try the following loosener: a 50/50 mix of acetone and transmission fluid. The acetone breaks down the rust and the trans fluid helps it seep in and keeps it slippery. And more use of the torch (heat gun works well too), plus get a bigger hammer. :)

#349892 Engine Oil Viscosity

Posted by ejguillot on 02 January 2013 - 09:31 PM

I think I'm going to try the 5w-40 actually... wouldn't that help more with the cold start oil circulation?


For a different perspective on oil, read this:

According to the various threads, the author has performed multiple viscosity studies on various fluids, and does all the mechanical work on his Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
