    Funny thing is that PS pump in my '89 Chevy K1500 has survived for the last thirty years, and four engine swaps using the red PS fluid. My 3T required the clear PS fluid and using the red PS fluid...

    When my PS pump failed I no longer had power assist on the steering; heavy manual steering feel. The GM pump I bought was made in Spain, IIRC. It's an easy enough job to replace if your familiar...

    The TPS is integral to the throttle body. If you want to replace the TPS replace the throttle body. There's no trick to it; I replaced mine a couple of years ago after my truck neared 100K miles. ...

    I cut ~2" Velcro straps from a roll that sells in hardware stores. I folded the Velcro over each elastic loop. It tightened up the clips perfectly and was a cheap fix-it.

    I with you on that statement Craig. I think the fact that we didn't have the trans cooler in the radiator helped keep our engines cooler traveling in hot weather. I think that was a big plus as...

    I sold my home in April. There were changes I had to make and I knew it was coming once I reached 65; down-sizing. My 3T was great with home life, but didn't really fit in with plans for a new...

    I don't want to mislead you into thinking the AX-15 is an upgraded trans. The AX-15 IS the stock Hummer man trans and is used in a variety of GM vehicles also. I think the ad I'm talking about is...

    The knock sensors (2) are located underneath the intake manifold. When I swapped out the LS1 (Gen III) engine in my '98 Firebird I pinched one of the knock sensor wires on the first sensor when I...

    You have several differing opinions on this subject. I mentioned my '69 Firebird because I think the seats would've been easier on that car than the Hummer. One item that was mentioned was if the...

    If GM could've kept the brand going for another year or two we might've got the 3.6L as the base engine which seems to be the one powering the GM line-up now. I still like the comfort and size of my...

    It's harder than it looks. It takes a pretty good grip to stretch the material properly and get it to lay right. It's kind of an art. I recovered the seats in my old '69 Firebird many years ago. ...

    Sounds to me like the dreaded PITA Pass-Lock glitch that started affecting me after about 100K. It's easy enough to get to the switch. I had enough practice after the one I bought wouldn't work and...

    What came to my mind is perhaps a simple test and that would be to use the fade control to check volume left to right and front to rear while also varying the volume. Maybe that is something to try.

    For the parts that are no 6 plastic/ PP; you can plastic weld them. It takes practice and there are plenty of YouTube videos to use as reference. The harder pieces like the external grille would...

    I have a magnetic drain plug on some of my vehicles and mostly I just wipe off the black mark (if at all) like it's a small felt tip mark on a paper. If you get chunks on the drain plug chances are...
