    Mine came also, Thank you
  3. Yesterday
  4. Dave, Looking through the 86-93 E Body Parts & Illustration Catalog I found that the column part numbers are the same for both the '90 and '91 Riviera and same years Reatta. It seems that although the Riviera column looks the same for '92 and for '93, part numbers don't match up...'92 different from '93 and neither match up with '90/'91 Riviera/Reatta. Simply put, the illustrations look the same but the part numbers were just changed...not unheard of by GM. I'd stick with looking for '90/'91 Riviera/Reatta.

    Good idea Dave. I just moved mine from the refrigerator to my tool box.
  6. Got a question for anyone with a parts book. I would like a 1990 steering column as a back up for the 'vert. Can anyone [Ship] let me know if a Riviera works and if so what year? Also today I replaced the both front rubber brake hoses on the Black. After I got the hoses done, bled the brakes and took it for a spin. No pulling to one side so all is good.

    I received my magnet today and it looks great! I have it on my tool box at the top and right in the middle. Thank you

    Glad to hear you get it out and drive it some. You have a nice looking Reatta. I will be driving mine some soon after a couple of months of sitting in the garage with a bad fuel pump.
  9. 89 MAUI

    THE REATTA LOUNGE

    I have owned my '89 triple blue for ten years and she has been my garage queen since 2014 due to my coming down with cancer and there she sat with a car cover over her during the winters but coming off for the spring thru the fall. What I found out the hard way is that I did not take her out on the road and stretch her rubber. So from 2014 to 2021 she just sat in the garage, however, I did use STA-BIL in the tank and the fuel pump was corrupted with old fuel and the pump (which had less than 150 miles in operation) lost the ability to pump fuel and it cost me to replace it a couple of months ago. I did go to a couple of car shows this summer even though she is a survivor and not a show stopper it is enjoyable to hear peoples response of this 2 seater.

    I got my magnet today. It looks really nice. It is proudly displayed on my refrigerator. Thank you for sending it to me.

    I just reprogrammed mine to work with a 180F Superstat, Low comes in at 184F and out at 182F, High in at 188F and off at 185F. May see 190F at a long hot stoplight but comes back down.

    The high temp sensor does send an input to the BCM which sends a signal to the ECM. It appears to me that you would need to ground the high temp sensor connector to make the fans run on high instead of just unplugging the connector. This diagram goes with the one I posted earlier.

    My daughter took this photo while on vacation in Baltimore this past weekend. I think it is cool. When I first looked it I really thought there was a hole in the brick wall of the building but there isn't.

    Will cool even better on high.

    will check codes tommorow. ac is running as it should. Can vehicle run correctly with fans on high when ac is on? never going into low speed. No check engine light on now.

    THE REATTA LOUNGE

    As most of you know I drive my Reattas quite a bit. Today the Black turned 200,000 miles. I always think it pretty neat when all the digits on the odometer roll over.

    Do you have any BCM codes stored in diagnostics? Is the A/C cooling as it should?
  19. john d

    cooling fans

    Ronnie it is the high side temperature sensor in question as you pictured. When connector is removed fans will run on high with ac on.

    What is BD27 reading with engine off and cool ? BTW when removed some freon will escape but not much if you plug the hole quickly. With R134A running under $4 a can I would not be concerned.

    I'm not familiar with the high pressure A/C "Switch". is it located on the compressor. There is a High Side "Temperature" Sensor on the high side A/C line as shown in the photo below. There is a Low Temperature Sensor and a Low Pressure Switch on the low pressure line. The temperature sensors are variable resistors. I can't imagine either on of them keeping the fans from running on high but anything is possible. The Low Pressure Switch can be replaced without losing the Freon. If you remove the Low or High Side Temperature Sensors the Freon will escape. The temperature sensors are no longer available new.

    Thanks to all. Now looking at high pressure ac switch. Seems to be remaining open. When connector is removed fans work with ac control. OHM'd connector, it's good. When changing sensor will I lose all freon?

    Parting out ish 89

    Oops, I just reread your post. Much too far and expensive to ship.

    I might be interested in the rims if original and in good condition.

    It also appears there may be another shop in Texas. At any rate it's a lot of tires on a monthly basis...

    That's a new one on me. Never heard of it. I looked on the map and it is a little west of Nashville. I hardly every go past Nashville in that direction. That sure is a little place to be buying so many used tires. They must have connections in other places where they can sell them. I'll bet they clean them up and make them look like new and sell them for a good profit.
  27. I looked all that stuff over while my tank was off. The fuel pump assembly and the inside of the tank all looked like new as well as the outside of the tank and lines. I could see the baffle inside the tank through the hole where the pump comes out and it was shiny like new. Donnie shined a light in the tank and said he couldn't see any trash at all in the tank so no cleaning was needed. The hardest thing about getting my tank off was that damn rubber hose that connects the filler pipe to the tank. It was almost like it was glued on. Donnie had to be careful prying it off to keep from damaging it. He put grease on it to make it go back on easier. Other than that everything came apart easy. I'm lucky that I don't have to deal with rust.
  28. Today I and a buddy swapped out the passenger side strut mount. It would make a one time click noise on a right turn. My buddy has a lift and we got it up in the air put some spring compressors on it and tightened it down. We then loosened up the sway bar as loose as it would go without coming off and then I used a pry bar for the last little bit of downward pressure we needed to remove the mount. The rubber gasket inside the mount that the strut goes through was worn and that was my issue. Not sure why it happened but with the new mount in there hopefully it will last as long as I need it.
