  1. Starting problem

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    That 335 code is actually the one I was researching (due to miss read). I decided to recheck your post, to see it was 353 an changed over to it. P0335 says that the crankshaft sensor seems to be failing. That fault is a B rated code. Because of that (so it says) you would not turn on the MIL...
  2. Starting problem

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    That code is saying you #5 cylinder ignition coil is failing. Short of just going out an buying one, it might be best to first swap it with say cylinder #3. If the rough running condition continues, but now displays a fault code of P0353, it would verify that the ignition coil (now in position...
  3. AC drips a lot lately - should I be worried?

    Tech Lounge
    I think its impossible to tell "exactly" how much total refrigerant is in the system at any given time. Hooking up a set of gauges to the low an high side ports would allow you to get a good idea of how the system is performing. I'm teaching myself about this system from reading the service...
  4. AC drips a lot lately - should I be worried?

    Tech Lounge
    "whatnext" has it right. There are those days when the airs moisture percentage is low (very dry air days). So even thou you are making lots of cold air, there is (very little to nothing) as far as water dripping out from under the car. On those higher humid days, you get lots of water...
  5. Key Stuck in Ignition

    G8 Talk (V6)
    I don't have any way to help you in that pic department. But there were some pics from a member that I remember seeing when the previous web format was in play. They might still be buried in this format somewhere, but how to find it is the problem. The part that I call the ignition key lockout...
  6. Key Stuck in Ignition

    G8 Talk (V6)
    If you can never hear that ignition cylinder solenoid thunk each time you press the shift lever button, it may be due to the solenoids pin being jammed in the extended position.There were a couple of members that had that problem. They had to open up the steering column trim to gain access to...
  7. A little help with thoughts or solutions for a power steering leak

    Tech Lounge
    I have a slow weep leak at some location near the drivers side of the cooling chamber attached to the base of the A/C condenser. I refuse to tear down my perfectly good working A/C, to replace the condenser at this time. The in an out rubber hoses clamped to the cooler make me think that the psi...
  8. Key Stuck in Ignition

    G8 Talk (V6)
    Do this>>>>> With the cars battery hooked up (an in good condition), the radio off, the HVAC off (for noise elimination), the shift lever in the "park" position, along with your key stuck in the #1 position (auxiliary power position), press the shift lever button. It should/must only depress...
  9. Rear ABS sensor metered reading new.

    Tech Lounge
    If those pics are trying to show me what the resistance of a good and or bad W/S sensor should/might be, its got me fooled. Are those values displayed in ohms, K ohms, or what ?
  10. digital speedometer not working HELP!!!

    Stereo / Electronics
    Are all of the other DIC displays an information normally available (other than the digital speed) also lost ?
  11. Does anyone know where the AC pressure sensor is located?

    Tech Lounge
    That's a lot different than the drawing in the service manual. I know there is a funky tool called a basin wrench (I think). It was designed to allow you to get up behind a bathroom or kitchen sink (with minimum tool rotation room). It has a flip-over self adjusting pipe wrench jaw design...
  12. Does anyone know where the AC pressure sensor is located?

    Tech Lounge
    Having that hex at least gives you a chance at it. May even be able to fit a deep 14mm socket with a wobble extension an ratchet, or a universal joint an extension.
  13. TPMS sensors

    Wanted to Buy / Trade
    I'm sure that ACDelco P/N 13598771 is the correct item. They show a 4 pack goes for $41 from Amazon. I think a little less on Ebay for the same thing. Or there are alternate sources (that deal thru Amazon) that sell their version of a 4 pack for something like $22 to $30 bucks. Might even be...
  14. Does anyone know where the AC pressure sensor is located?

    Tech Lounge
    I've never had to replace that switch/sensor on this car. The bad is that it appears to be round in the service manual drawings. The small hex nut device (that the sensor threads into) is actually a self sealing Schrader valve (that's good) The factory set the sensor torque to 53 inch pounds...
  15. Does anyone know where the AC pressure sensor is located?

    Tech Lounge
    Its installed vertically under a T pipe section at the rear of, an about 2" outboard of the compressor. Best viewed and replaced looking/working up from below.

    Its getting better all the time. How about this >>>>> When i wanted to see what a members past posts were about, or possibly PM that member, all I had to do was mouse his signature an up popped a column (to pick from). It gave me 3 or 4 choices to pick from. Like total posts from latest to...

    I used to be able to display "all" of my posts from the newest to the oldest if I wanted. I liked that a lot. It allowed me to review what things I had posted reguarding various problems to see if they may have helped, and whether or not those posts might possibly help others that have developed...

    I know they say this format is better/faster etc. But I sure liked the display // layout // user functions // slower response (if it actually was) etc. I used to be able to see who was active on the forum (at the bottom of the forum page) as long as I was also active. Now (unless I'm wrong...
  19. Check oil light?

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    ^^^^^^^ I actually had the same fault as you. That being P0521 (sensor performance) When I posted above, I was taking a wild guess at the P number. As a side thought, I see that after X amount of time (after a post has been entered) it won't let you edit it, if you notice a mistake (s). I was...
  20. Having g8 gt starter replacement problems

    Tech Lounge
    Do you know for a fact, that all of the flex plate teeth that mesh with the starter are in good condition ? When you say replaced the starter 3 times, were they what might be called a rebuilt/refurbished unit ? After starter engagement, do you feel that the cranking action/speed is normal...
