    My silver 2000 T/A has the ABS INOP light on the dash ever since I've owned it. Still passes inspection, but constantly seeing that light on is annoying. Brakes don't lock up, but is due to the shade tree mechanics that owned it before me put a 4 channel rear end in it instead of a 3 channel. Just one of the many things I have to deal with on this car. Ready to sell it. Some tanks get 10 mpg, other tanks on the road get 23mpg. One tank got 2mpg, yes, I said TWO MPG....

    Isnt it possible to drill the 3 channel ABS sensor hole on the top of the housing and retrofit it?

    I would figure something would become obvious with such a fluctuation in gas mileage, does power also fluctuate?

    I could probably retrofit it, but that is too much work taking into consideration all the jicky jack other things wrong with the car!!
    Power doesn't fluctuate, it runs strong all the time, but if the wind is blowing in the right direction, your eyes burn and can smell raw fuel, but no leaks under the car....

    Do you still have your charcoal canister and other evap emissions equipment? I knew a guy who his charcoal canister was full of gas from overfilling or vapor feedback and would frequently smell like a gas station.

    Let me look up my notes. I know the 3 wires you need to do something with and it will go out.

    Had to push my TA in the garage so I could pull the MC out and send to Tick for warranty. I hope to God it's just the mc and not the slave too. I hate dropping the transmission.
    I can do it in about 1-1.5 hour in my garage but it's a PITA without a lift. Still need to install the rear sway bar and replace the rear transmission seal.... The seal and MC are the reason I haven't been driving it since July.

    "Skittles" my new nickname for the vert due to all the different color panels put on after the accident was dropped off for paint yesterday.

    She's getting this color.



    We wanted a little more darker red but the color that was first pick would have cost an additional $600.

    Hell the paint job is the most $$$ I've put into the car. It's costing more then what I paid for my Trans Am. It wasn't a color change so there's that.

    Picked up for $400.
    New Top $400.
    Service and fixing coolant issues $100.
    Carpet $350

    Replacing all the damage stuff from her accident $650.


    My daughter keeps it up she'll have a nice ride once she gets wheels and some decent seats. We both need seats.

    Put strano springs/koni str.t shocks on, new moog tierod ends and an alignment. Drives like brand new and handles 1000x better. Love it. Now I am up at sunshine performance getting a rich condition looked at. Changed all the culprits besides the maf. But I want hptuners to tell me what I need.

    MAF, O2's, outside air infiltrating the exhaust pre-O2, or a vacuum leak are your most likely culprits. The PCV hose coming around from the back of the engine from the driver's side head is a good place to begin.

    Car is g2g, everything looks really good on the scan from sunshine. And yes it has ebay headers. O2s are switching right, maf is reading right, vaccum is good as well.

    So the rich issue has been solved? Or was it a non-issue?

    Tick is on the ball as always.

    My replacement MC is heading back to me.

    Still can't drive it for 2 more months.
