    Thanks. I find that capping the vacuum (via the outlet on the "cap") with my finger did bring the idle back down. I could do that permanently, but I'm not sure I really should. The vacuum is...

    The old 3.0L was loose, but the 2.8L is very, very tight in the valve cover, so I think the O-ring is OK.

    [Engine] Lost my 3.0L PCV/Filer/Cap thing

    I changed the oil in my 3.0L the other day, and used the PCV (I think that's what it's called?) thing on the passenger side valve cover. I was going to use the filler on the driver's side valve...

    This weekend I drove it about 20 minutes on the highway. It was sunny, humid and in the mid to high 80s. I didn't have my laptop with me, so I had to rely on the stock gauge. It very, very slowly...

    Yup, that's the one I'm using. I was pretty sure it was a GM, but I didn't see anything about it in my notes. Thanks!

  6. [Transmission Auto] Removing the automatic transmission shifter housing

    I have a project that requires removing the shifter housing from the automatic. That's the white-is plastic thing that the stick goes through to get to the linkage (part 105427, #18 here).

    I got...

    I have the high-efficiency cooling fans, so I decided to let my fans run normally all the time. I made it home today with no incidents, even with getting stuck in stop-and-go traffic for a bit (high...

    Sounds good to me! I have to get better at using those graphing features. I was concerned about getting up to 210, but you were up to 217, so I guess I have nothing to worry about.

    I made it...

    I finally pulled the coolant sensor from the water pump and calibrated it. The boiling water test got 190 ohms at 200-210 degrees; I'm a little fuzzy on that because the meat thermometer I was using...

    I just did the IR thermometer test. I had trouble getting a good reading off the shiny otterestat pipe. It would read around 165-175, but it would be over 200 if I moved the thermometer body too...

    Sorry for the late reply; I missed the notifications:

    I've bled the radiator five times now (I get home or to a parking lot and bleed it). Each time there's a hiss of air before the coolant comes...

    And here are some pics of the gauges that I took while on the road. Apologies for the quality.

  13. [Engine] Which temperature gauge to trust? Or, how hot is too hot?

    First: 3.0L EFI here.

    I replaced the water pump a couple weeks ago. I noticed the engine temp was a little high the other day (near 220, according to the dash gauge), so I bled the system at the...

    Today I confirmed that the low fuel light works (which makes sense, since that's just software handled by the DMCH box). I put more gas in the tank, but the gauge only goes up to 3/5 full. I'm...

    That was just to help me remember which line was fuel vs return. I didn't have a green zip tie for the other one. I guess they're different sizes, though, so I couldn't have screwed them up......

    Replaced the connector on the wiring harness and everything is good to go. As predicated, the access cover won't fit due to the way I have the fuel lines oriented, but that's something to worry...

    Finally got it secured. Of course, now the electrical connector doesn’t want to latch securely. Might have to replace it. But the car starts and the sender appears to be working, so that’s good.

    Looks like we have slightly different pumps — mine is plastic, more like DMCH, but otherwise I expect they’re the same.

    Pointing the sender arm towards the back ignore the car works well for me,...

    I came up with a solution. The Tahoe variable resistor rotates from left to right. I was able to flip the float arm so that the sensor now rotates right to left. That should make the gauge read...

    I'll eventually do a digital dash and have the sender go into an Arduino.

    But in the meantime, I did a test and I'm seeing exactly as you described -- ~40 ohms when full on the DMCH sender, but...

    I replaced the pump with a $50 one from Herko that is an exact physical match (as mentioned here: http://dmctalk.org/archive/index.php/t-3824.html ). It was a huge pain to get the plastic hose on and...
