    Cam Position Sensor P0340

    Thanks for the reply, it's been 11 days and no code so far, but I have had a few start-then-die events... So it makes me think something is still going on there... I will probe it and see what I get, should also be able to scan while running and see it oscillate shouldn't I??

    steering wheel telescopic function stuck

    I am unsure about the clockspring breaking. But I can tell you I had the same issue you are currently having: The easy entry function kept pulling the steering wheel in until it bottomed out on my blinker/multi switch. I pulled the whole column and found the potentiometer was just dirty...

    steering wheel telescopic function stuck

    I believe you do have to remove the rear motors, this way you can manually manipulate the column in and out in the case that you can't get to all the screws. Also pull the battery cable... Obviously. And if you aren't the athletic/skinny and flexible type, you may need to pull the driver seat...

    steering wheel telescopic function stuck

    It's really quite simple, any dingbat with a bench to work on and some simple tools can fix it. I know because I'm a dingbat and fixed two of them. Remove kick panel, remove bolt from steering joint, disconnect the connectors to the steering column underneath, remove the 4-6 bolts holding the...

    Cam Position Sensor P0340

    97 Mark VIII 1) Car randomly dies right after a crank and start. Trying again immediately always works. 2) Measured the connector going to the PCM: 1 wire = 0-1 ohms 2 wire = infinite, no measurement. 3) Replaced the sensor because it was original to the car, still same symptoms and light...

    Not Another Overheating Thread!

    Looks like you've done a lot of work, I am leaning towards head gasket.... Few questions: Is the heater blowing hot? Have you done a proper chemical flush? This stuff works great, when I got my mark it was bubbling out of the overflow, I did everything you did, then a few flushes (3) with this...

    @BILLBOATS thanks, it is converted to springs already but I want to put air ride back in at some point... I tore apart the bad seat motors and found the gear responsible for the problem, has anyone tried 3d printing these? Does anyone have a scanner to try and get it scanned and 3d printed?? I...

    I found a 66k mile Mark that was getting scrapped, pulled the seat motors and column. Now all my interior motors work again, for at least a few months... I hope :D

    Bit hard to please... :p The hazards do it, but I can't make it do it for the blinkers for some reason... oh well, I am pretty happy with it.

    Thanks Rapple, I did see the ballast as an option, I just feel getting rid of the neon and going with easy to repair and source LEDs is the better long term game. Hopefully I can get good light dispersement with them... And yeah I've turned off all the easy entry and memory stuff... Doesn't seem...

    This thing is pretty much sorted... I broke into the rear neon yesterday, decided I am not going to try and salvage it, but I am going to replace it with LEDs, I will document the process since it seems nobody has really tried to help the community in this way except for personal gain. I also...

    Took out the steering column to repair it since the telescoping feature was not working. Pulled the potentiometer and installed a new old stock unit, re-greased everything... Put back together, installed, it worked for about a day and quit working again... Boo... Guess I am taking it back...

    Still had some issues with this car, it would randomly surge RPMs on the freeway or while coasting, then it would surge during idle as well. Vac leak showed nothing but a small IAC leak, replaced IAC with new Delco one, no change. Went to the yard and pulled a PCM out of another 97, had...
