    Broken Injector Harness Connectors

    you can remove the pins from the conector with a terminal tool (specialty tool shops will have them). But for whats its worth just put a zip tie through the slot were the clip broke and around the connector on the injector. these guys break ALL of the time and thats usualy the fix for them.

    how do u check the transmission fluid

    No dip stick on the trans. To check the level, run the car, let it reac op-temp, lift the vehicle so you can go under it but besure the car is still LEVEL! With the engine still running unscrew the hex plug on the top right corner of the trans, fluid should run out and be level with the bottom...

    Check Engine Temp

    could very well be the thermostat being that the LS uses a wax stat..... BUT, in reality the most common cause of this is actually a faulty overflow cap. On the LS (t bird and s type also) the over flow cap acts as your "radiator cap" it is designed to hold 15psi.... if it is leaky and the...

    Quick, the reason you couldn't find a colder plug for the LS is because there isn't one listed as a "Colder Plug for the LS" as there is for Mustangs, F-body's, ect. But, this doesn't mean there isn't a colder plug.... you just have to find it yourself. When i ran my turbo on the ls, i ran 1...

    so who has done this????

    The LS has a feature where it will adjust the volume depending on vehicle speed...... so, the radio harness has your vss wire in it.... which also goes to the cruise unit. chances are this wire got shorted out, or connected to something accidentaly...... but, id think that this would effect your...

    How about that. In tank/hose(?) oil cooler. Never saw that kind before

    Actually there has always been an oil/water cooler on the 3.9. If you look at the filter housing you can see the black cooler before the filter with a send/return hose going to the radiator. to the left of the housing is the oil pressure transducer. It has always been like that. The lines you...

    Hydraulic fan

    It works off of a pump very similar to your power steering pump. If you look under the hood you will see a resivoir on either side of the engine, the passenger side is the fan, and the drivers side is the power steering. Both opperate off of power steering fluid.

    Finally diagnosed my fuel system

    The LS fuel system is a returnless system. It controls fuel pressure by altering voltage going to the fuel pump. You have a sensor on the drivers side fuel rail that monitors fuel pressure, and engine vacuum. This sensor in conjunction with rpm, tp, and engine load lets your REM know how...
