    15th year BG plant homecoming reunion Sept 26 - 28 2018

    Wishing everyone a great time at the 15 year reunion. Diane and I will not be coming this year. I had tentatively made hotel reservations just in case we could make it, but cancelled the other day. We just got back from a 17 day, 3,000 mile trip to Kansas and Colorado in our new Tesla Model 3...

    Cadillac XLR Owner Gets Trapped in Car After Key FOB Battery Fails

    Rob, good idea to show a picture of the emergency release in case someone hasn't yet read the manual. Man, that's one dirty XLR though and look they still put a paper floor protector down anyway! XLR and Corvette aren't the only cars that work this way. My new Tesla Model 3 also has electric...

    Making a Change!

    Cubby, The new vettes look great. Haven't had a chance to drive one yet. Probably a good idea for me not to drive one :cool:. I don't think we will be able to make the homecoming this year as much as I would like to. We have a trip planned to Colorado around the same time and I have been...

    Making a Change!

    Cubby, Sorry to see your XLR-V leaving us. It was a pretty close VIN to mine which I will probably hang onto until it expires completely. It will probably be worth more in parts at that time. My next go fast car will be an all electric Tesla sometime later this Summer. Steven

    Low grade fuel pinging. need help

    If it is doing it with premium you may have some carbon build up in the cylinders causing the compression to be higher than normal. Brief pinging under load is not normal, but if it is continuous for any length of time it can damage the rings and pistons. There is a procedure to remove the...

    Top Rubber Bumper Melted

    I was cleaning the top and found another melted rubber bumper. This one is behind the seats under the tonneau cover and only visible when the top is stopped midway in it's travel. It looks like it may hold the top in place when it is lowered. No idea what the part number is for this one. I've...

    Help! Exhaust module

    One option would be to just mount a switch in the console and wire it to open and close the valves. I have done this and it works very well. All the module does is open the valves above 3500 RPM.

    Hardtop res. level

    There are two gas struts, one on each side of the trunk lift mechanism to assist the hydraulics in lifting the trunk. I suspect they may be getting weak and need to be replaced. I was wondering if that would become a problem as our cars get older as they always fail in other applications over...

    Necessary preventative scheduled maintenance.

    I believe any GM dealer service department can give you a printout of any & all service preformed to your car by a GM dealer if you give them the VIN number.
