Its even worse... he has been a memeber for 13 years and has 2 active posts.....

Some people don't know how the internet works, and think deleting after posting somehow works like an Etch-A-Sketch. (You made 2 posts 13yrs ago about fixing an ignition switch, which I'd never know if you didn't ask about deleting... Look up Streisand Effect.)

@  Marchi1 : (21 July 2021 - 01:53 AM)

and just quit using it. there is very little update and while I can delete it why would you?

@  Marchi1 : (21 July 2021 - 01:52 AM)

SELLING 99GS SEE FORUM, THANK YOU

@  dezldave961 : (16 June 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Good deal. I'll be resolving some issues when I get back from a work trip, as well.

@  ejguillot : (14 June 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Also rechecked the flexplate and rocker arm bolts, all were torqued to spec.

@  ejguillot : (14 June 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Update on the tap/knock noise: resolved most of it by resealing my exhaust. Front header to crossover pipe leak - noise at 1/2 engine RPM.

@  ejguillot : (04 June 2021 - 07:15 PM)

I'll recheck those, thanks for the heads up.

@  dezldave961 : (03 June 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Also, check that the rockers are all torqued, still. Re-usable bolts like to be around 25 or so, but settling in from running may back one out that was torqued while partially under load on a cam lobe.

@  dezldave961 : (03 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Did you do anything with the flexplate? Those 3 bolts tend to come loose and rattle over time, if not torqued with loctite.

@  ejguillot : (03 June 2021 - 04:46 PM)

doing OK. Tune's all fixed, but hearing a tap/knock noise from my engine that is no longer fading with higher RPM. Not good.

@  Nateteo : (27 May 2021 - 09:03 PM)

1/3 of the way done doing my lower and resealing everything on the top end. hows everyone's week been so far.

@  dezldave961 : (11 May 2021 - 09:07 PM)

It could be real, just very incorrect A/F for the range it's crossing.

@  ejguillot : (11 May 2021 - 02:54 PM)

Any advice on identifying false KR? I'm getting KR blips when rolling into the throttle, and that with the blower belt off.

@  ejguillot : (11 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

Hi everyone. Still working on my project regal, chasing down powertrain issues.

@  dezldave961 : (01 May 2021 - 08:44 PM)

Yikes, well hope you guys get that resolved, so it stays active enough to remain viable.

Happy thanksgiving Buick Regal old timers and granddaddies.

 

My Audi A6 has a plastic underbelly "pan" which goes underneath the entire engine bay. The name of this thing itself is part of the reason I'm posting since I don't really know the best words.  Help me out.  Some ideas: belly pan, splash guard, underbelly panel, underbelly plate, belly plate, belly pan, undercarriage pan?  What's the best word?  

 

It is a pain to remove just to do an oil change.  Also, if you are doing a job and loose a bolt, it will go there instead of the concrete.  But, even so I need this on my cars and was curious if there's such a thing on my buick regal.  I got my regal used and the first thing to loose would be this thing, so I was just asking if this is available on this car.  I checked ebay to see if there's a part, but didn't see anything.  I want it for a few reasons and would be happy to get an aftermarket one if anyone knows of one.

They're correct, but also be sure the air dam is in place.  It's usually a ~3-4" plastic flap hanging down just ahead of the front cross beam of the engine cradle/crossmember directing air to the radiator to not bypass it.  These have more structure on some newer W-bodies, extending to the bottom of the bumper cover (my GXP's does that).

 

Sidenote:  ~12yrs ago a friend (JohnC from ClubGP) made a panel for under the rear of his GTP to cut-down the "parachute" effect from the rear bumper cover, since it's hollow from the gas tank to the back.  Covering that area where only the spare tire well occupies seemed to be a cool idea.  He ran some high 11.4's at ~119mph like this with some great launches, granted the XPZ setup with his custom head porting probably did 99% of the job, but every bit helps.
