    Thanks. It did need some attention when we started on it. Still a few issues to address like the fuel gauge that is acting up... again.

    The Regal got some attention at the cruise in last night. Every time I looked over at it, there were 2 or 3 people gawking under the hood and pointing at stuff.

    Did you get the "I had one just like that but it had a bigger engine/ was faster? I hate those types.

    Late last year, the Regal started squeaking upon start up. It would subside after the engine warmed up a bit so not a huge concern. Finally got around to diagnosing it Monday evening. With my stethoscope it sounded like the tensioner pulley was the source and upon removal of the belt and pulley I can hear a bit of a rattle when I spin it by hand. Fortunately, the 'Zone carries AC Delco pulleys and for $24.99 I sourced a steel replacement with a 2 yr. warranty. Only difference is that the new one does not have raised edges, but since this is a serpentine belt system and you cannot see the pulley behind all the plumbing, it's not a big deal.

    My meeting ran long last night so it wasn't until this morning that I was able to go out to the garage. The replacement pulley absolutely looks different, but fit perfectly. I had a heck of a time trying to figure out a way to hold the tensioner arm in place while I tightened the pulley bolt. Ended up using a 3" extension and an allen head socket wedged between the water pump housing and the tensioner arm. Not an ideal solution, but it worked just fine.
