    So it's been a while since I posted anything after rebuilding my XLR. I've driven it quite a bit and even had it at a car show but It's always had an oil leak (go figure!) and it's kind of embarrassing driving around smelling like oil and parking and leaving drips so I finally took […]
  • Looking to rehome 2007 XLR July 24, 2022

  • Ambient Temperature Sensor Malfunctioning Only When Top Down July 28, 2022
    This is a weird quirk with my 06 XLR-V but I wanted to know if anyone else had the same issue. When I put the top down, the ambient air temperature sensor goes berserk and displays a negative air temp. If I put it up, the temperature returns to normal after 15-20 min of driving. […]
