    Like Cutless said, though. Do a good once over on the lines and wires. People do funny things to these cars sometimes.
    yeah my first thing is getting that lower manifold gasket fixed.. then if i have time this week, i will let my mechanic have a look at it.. have to get the coolant sensor fixed, and the oil pressure gauge doesnt work.. probably going to end up putting the pillar gauges in anyway.. i had those in my 98 z28.. love the way it lights up the interior.. by the way, where can i get reverse glow gauge overlay?

    with Cutlass. You know the previous owner dogged it to the point of needing to replace the engine. GO OVER IT WITH A FINE TOOTH COMB.


    Great find and have fun!

    Also hate to say it, I'm jealous!

    ok so now to give you the secret handshake, honorary solid gold plated key chain (Mods will provide that) and official tattoo that makes you a full fledged member......

    Well I do believe that this car will be mine for the rest of my life. No plans of getting rid of her. As for the tat. Lol. I've already googled trans am tattoos and have one picked out. New headlights, that's on my list too. Along with redoing this 1 working speaker stereo system. Went and priced some memphis audio speakers and a nice pioneer head unit. I'm goin to need to take on a 2nd job to get extra money to support this habit. Anyone know where I can sell a kidney? Lol

    new tranny mount..

    well just had the tranny mount replaced and fresh oil put in.. the old tranny mount was in such bad shape that it fell into 2 pieces when it was taken out. i must say that it drives much better now.. no more hard shift into 2nd and my dash may actually stay in 1 piece now.. man what a difference.. changed the belt last weekend but still have a noise going on.. from what i can pinpoint, its the tensioner pulley.. guess i will be buying on of those friday.. but its all part of the game i suppose.. hopefully within the next 2 weeks i can finally get to the exhaust..

    I just recently had to replace the alt(covered under warranty),so I had a little cash to put into the project and rplaced the idler pulley and tensioner and belt. All on the alt,power steering circuit only, and boy what a difference. Quietest it has ever been. Don't be afraid to replace stuff.

    if your mount breaks again soon then your motor mounts are bad

    Auto or 6speed ?

    Just want to add that I replaced 2 trans mounts before I found out my Left Motor mount was bad, and I'm an M6.

    Its an A4. How long did your tranny mount last before it went out again because of the motor mounts?
