    Coil pack failure

    My X developed a very modest and occasional slight 'sneeze' or delicate 'cough', while idling waiting at lights. In park there was nothing to notice and when moving, again nothing to notice. However, not right. I plugged in the Tech II and it has a diagnostic function that displays a mis-fire...

    Any dealings with OPG?

    'Morning all I note that OPG are carrying XLR parts now (see Cadillac XLR Parts @ OPGI.com) A quick scan over their site suggests that currently they are only carrying GM parts available elsewhere, and judging by their prices, they are not yet the cheapest out there either. Anyways, does...

    Goop on windshield header/roof seal, failing rubber stop

    This had me puzzled at first. I found a small amount of strange goop in the middle of the roof seal, at the top of the windshield. Not grease, more like paint to remove. Very, very sticky. On the underside of the front of the roof there was more of it. There is no place in the roof it can...

    Thread form on brake flex hose 2004

    Slightly off topic - another no crank cause, failed a/c compressor, what would an XLR do?

    A 'Goo on the carpet' query

    I have never had this happen before. On Tuesday, I noticed a curious tar like mark on an old bit of carpet (not in my XLR). I didn't have the time to investigate properly, but it was a tar like substance, on touching it, it left a black gooey smear, was about 4" long, 1/2" wide and appeared to...
