    Torque Converter Inspection Plate Bolt Size

    Replaced my transmission a while back and lost the plate. Finally came across one but I don't recall what the thread pitch/bolt length is supposed to be. I do recall it being a 13mm head. Anyone know off hand or can check? About to go on a long road trip through some dusty trails and...

    HVAC blower motor only blows on high, even in the off position. Replaced.....

    I would try swapping EATC at this point as it seems you've done all other things I would suggest trying first. Very strange it does not blow at all with a new control module, maybe all of the ones you've tried (including the 'new' one) are duds?

    Your entire post screams your ex-GF did it. (You even admitted she has done it in the past...) Once a keyer, always a keyer. Real loser thing to do.

    control arm preferred supplier these days?

    The thunderbird ones don't have the height sensor mount-balls on them. Don't buy them if you're still on air unless you want to deal with attaching that to the replacements.

    Fuel pump, FPR or something else?

    how to remove trim piece around ignition switch

    I didn't need to remove any screws when I changed my ignition cylinder. Turn key to on, depress the detent (which IS a PITA to find) and slide the cylinder out. The bezel pops right out then.
