  1. Thinking About Buying

    Newbie/Introduction Forum
    I think $25k is quite high. That's a few thousand $ more than I paid for my '09 with 6600 miles back in 2010. I know they've kept their value very well and I bought mine at a good time, but what are you getting back if it's totaled a week after you buy it? Mine was a great car for just over...

  3. Evap Vent Solenoid fix DIY

    Intake/Fuel Tech
    A pair of hose clamp pliers was invaluable when I replaced the solenoid last month. Once everything else was off except the hose in the back of the solenoid it still took a while to get this thing on the clamp due to lack of space... But it was done without dropping the cradle & about 2 hours...
  4. Evap Vent Solenoid fix DIY

    Intake/Fuel Tech
    Thanks for the how to. I recently replaced the evap solenoid with the help of my brother who was a mechanic once upon a time. Without his help I would've never been able to do it. It took about two hours with two guys with large hands & without dropping the cradle and with some help from some...
  5. Shop recommendation Atlantic County NJ

    North East
    I probably should've gone to efx, with what I ended up spending and not having much confidence in the work that was done. Sucks to spend $3k+ just to trade her in shortly after!
  6. P0304 how does this sound?

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Well, I should've taken her to another shop as something didn't seem quite right after though at times she was still fun to drive all the way up to driving to trade her in last week. It was fun while it lasted but I've moved on to a '15 Hyundai Genesis 5.0. Similar in size and power but with...

    Aftermarket parts and oem were no problem at all when my car was fixed.

    Parts for Sale
    I recently traded in my '09 G8 GT and have a few items I no longer need. Lug nut covers - SOLD Used switchblade key fob with brand new uncut key. No inside parts as I transferred the innards to another fob years ago. Key part doesn't spring open when you push the button but should just need...
  9. P0304 how does this sound?

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    I did that last night, swapped coils, put in a new plug. I dropped it off to a local shop this morning, spark, compression is good, nothing external. They'll be taking the valve cover off, and looking further. It's a local place, I've seen some built mustangs in their lot over the years. Now...
  10. P0304 how does this sound?

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    I purchased gas about 2-3 days prior to this starting. I drove about 200 miles in the couple days prior to this occurring and then was down to about a quarter tank left. The code appeared immediately after smashing the gas a bit on Sunday. She seemed to not accelerate as she should have at...
  11. P0304 how does this sound?

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    https://youtu.be/qYycKVIZ_Ps Started with a multi misfire code yesterday P0300. I drove to work this morning about 10 miles. She felt about normal between 25-45 mph. Feels like crap at a stop and with light accelerating it's not very smooth at all. I checked the codes again when I parked at...
  12. Shop recommendation Atlantic County NJ

    North East
    Thanks! I saw EFX online, there's also Tune Time in Lakewood that's probably about the same distance from me. I don't think I'd feel comfortable driving an hour or so the way it's running now, so I think I'd need it towed. I'm still hoping there might be something closer.
  13. Shop recommendation Atlantic County NJ

    North East
    I just pulled a P0300 code. G8 GT is running like crap and was wondering if anyone has a shop recommendation that might be close to home in Atlantic County, NJ? I was just heading out today to pick up a socket to replace the oil pressure sensor as I've recently had a P0523 code. So, when I...

    G8 GT Talk (V8)
    It's going through my insurance for repairs. I just got the estimate and it's just about $6700.00. I didn't imagine it would be that much. Wondering now how close this is to being considered totaled. I've put a call in to the adjuster to ask a few questions.
  16. P2272 occurs on decel, cortex tune

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    I've had a P2272 off and on for a few months. I thought maybe it was because I finally changed the Cortex tune to Rotofab 93 as it occurred a month or so after installing that tune. I was running the non-rotofab cortex tune for a couple years prior to changing it. Resetting the CEL would...
  17. Pool owners enter.....

    I've had a salt system for almost 4 years now in our 25K gallon concrete inground pool. It's been great and so far I've had no issues with it at all. I bought a Compupool unit and installed it myself. I think I paid about $500 for it at the time and it's probably paid for itself in chlorine...
  18. Steering wheel play after alignment???

    Tech Lounge
    For almost 3 years I dealt with a slight pull and had the steering wheel off center just a little. When I first got the car with 6600 miles on it it was that way and when the dealer checked the alignment when I bought it they said it was normal and I just dealt with it since it wasn't...

  20. Extended Warranty Question

    G8 GT Talk (V8)
    Only 40000, but I've only been driving 7500-9000 miles/year so I figured even if I started driving more I'd have at least 3 years/40k. I went with the $0 deductable as well.
