That looks good Driller what's under the hood and what's she run?
She got a tune up today with new plugs, air and fuel filters, and a fresh oil/filter change. I see that I need new valve cover gaskets so I have a set coming. While I have the covers off I'm going to strip the front of the motor down and clean/paint everything I can and just do a makeover under the hood. It's pretty clean but will look 10X better
Can't wait to see the bay all cleaned up Hope you powdercoat the covers And remember to post pics

Hey everyone. I'm a newbie, just acquired a '97 VIII blk/blk. So. Cali desert car, 2nd owner, garage kept, 90k miles. Upgraded audio to Kenwood touch screen, tinted windows, flushed engine, power steering, brake fluid, rear dif, and tranny and replaced all with Amsoil synthetics. Have Stop Tec front and rear perf and slotted rotors with Hawk pads on the way. R&r'd the chrome accent strips on the bottom of the doors and front of rear wheels.
Very nice And I see the wheels are on correctly nice
Thank you, slowmkvii. One big problem is the washer switch at the end of the washer and turn arm is missing, and been all over the galaxy looking for one, but have been unsuccessful. Any ideas?
there a couple of members on here who sell them so post in wtb parts and wait or go to the facebook site and ask
Thanks slowmkvii. Found on eBay from racebronco2. Button and spring. Hopefully I'll figure out how to install it properly.
Was working on markviiidrea's car and though this would make a good pic
No heat. Ran the diagnostic and got error codes 155 030 Can't find what they indicate. Anyone know?
EATC code 155: SCP invalid or missing data for displays (caused by MC) 030 Self test indicates automatic temperature control sensor shorted Fix 30 and 155 will probably go away Also possible blend door arm or actuator Depending on the year
My '97 has a serious condensation problem in the left headlamp but couldn't find any videos or other instruction on how to remove it to clear and reseal it, been looking all day. Any help is appreciated. It looks relatively easy by just removing the retaining screw at the rear of the assembly. What else do I need to do?
YEEEEAAAHH!! I just now got a windshield wiper button-switch for my '97 from racebronco2, installed it, and it WORKS. I now have an operating windshield washer! What a relief! It's the little things in life that can be so great.
What DIDN'T I do to my Mark? Flew to Burbank CA fro Dallas, TX. Picked it up in California from 2nd owner--all records. Desert car and garage-kept, absolutely no rust anywhere. Drove back to Dallas for: 1)window tint 2)Upgraded to Kenwood Touchscreen Sirrius radio From Dallas drove to Jacksonville, FL, then Miami. From Miami took it to The Magic Mechanic in Orlando where I: 3) I had all fluids flushed -- oil, tranny, p-steering, brake lines, rear differential and replaced all with Amsoil synthetics. From there drove it to CT where I: 4) R&R'd fr and rr rotors and replaced with Stop Tech racing rotors with Hawk pads 5) R&R'd tensioner, pully and serpentine belt 6) Located and installed washer button -- and it WORKS! 7) Today had front suspension -- ball joints, bushings and sway bar end links replaced with MOOG problem solvers -- HUGE difference in ride and handling (of course). Friday to detail shop for complete polish and ultimate detail job. Next week having the heater assembly replaced -- the box was busted so replacing the actuator would not have made any difference. And then . . . . I'm f*(&#$g done for the time being. I don't have a girlfriend, I have a very, VERY demanding and expensive mistress.
After sitting for 5 years (yeah, i know... I probably can't afford this car, but have had it for 12 years) because I couldn't afford to fix the air ride, we had to move. Got a new battery, 5 gallons of gas, a can of Sea Foam, and she started right up. Amazing!
Car looks real nice!
Had the beast buffed, fully detailed, and finalized with the new ceramic coating. Prestige Auot Detail in Salt Lake City did an incredibly awesome job!!
My friend had mine detailed when I left it in Tulsa and I was working on/having some work done to his Vette.
Pulled her out the garage after tuning her up this weekend. Warmed her up and prayed the door would not do the I'm froze and I don't wanna close trick! Success it shut and we did a 17 mile stretch at 90 mph on the way to work. SHE DID AWESOME!
had to do the oil filter adapter gasket on the 98. They always like to be changed in the winter too.
Had to do same thing last week, except mine was worse as the oil pressure sender bung was cracked. Could not locate a replacement oil filter adapter locally, so had a shop (Cylinder Head Repair - Wichita KS) cut off damaged portion & weld on some aluminum stock, drilled & tapped for new oil pressure sender. While I was getting it repaired, found an adapter @ salvage yard & purchased it just in case. Installed repaired unit. No leaks!
Monday & Tuesday fixed the air ride, still a little stiffer then I want but it's filling, venting, sitting lower & level ! Wednesday I installed new drivers side powerwindow motor (new complete seamans vdo motor from rockauto for $18 + S&H, what a deal !) Yesterday I just dtove it ! Today it's getting bath
