Re: Astroless

234K and yes original tranny.

Here's the kicker on that.... We bought it with 98K.

I never changed the fluid/filter in that sucker. I expected it to die shortly after we bought and I had plans for a stronger unit to replace it... But it just kept going and going....

Astroless

Well that's it. As of today, I am Astroless. Our 95 got traded today for a 1998 Olds 98 LS. I took a new job recently which requires a 65 mile commute. The Astro and the pickup were going to kill me on gas $$$. Hoping for 30mpg with the Oldsmobile. On a side note... Why does "Astro" show as being mi...

Re: Well we finally found it

That's good news! A the daughter of a co-worker was having all kinds headaches and other pain issues. They finally found out that the hole in her skull for the spine to go through wasn't big enough. They did surgery, well essentially to grind the hole bigger. And she's doing much better. Prayers for...

Re: idles fine but back fires when under load ?

Doesn't backfiring under load possibly indicate a lean condition? Thus low fuel pressure?

Maybe that's more of a WOT thing vs. just load...

Re: No High speed fan

Umm.... Yeah.... Do you know what I hate more when things break? When they start working again for no apparent reason!!! Took the relay out again. Tested all the voltages again. Got the same results. Jumper the purple to red again, got the same result... Shut every thing off. Put the relay back in p...

Re: No High speed fan

Still stumped here guys. I replaced the pigtail that goes into the power distribution block. See the photo above with 4 wires going into it? That's the one. One of those was cooked. The far right one. Now I have full battery voltage to the relay all the time. :cheers: I can jumper from the red wire ...

Re: No High speed fan

Now more stumped than ever. After taking things apart and the junction box again, cleaning things, putting a little dielectric grease on just in case and putting it back together, I have battery voltage at the red wire on the relay. When the fan switch is turned to high I have battery voltage at the...

Re: No High speed fan

So after taking the battery out and fiddling with the junction box it's worse. I removed the bolt under this red cap. Cleaned it all up and put it back together. Now I have less than 1.5 volts at the relay. http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p123/NotDadsW41/webSite/install3.jpg BTW that wire is for ...

Re: No High speed fan

Finally back to this! <sigh> So I have battery voltage to the orange wire when the switch is on HIGH. If I jumper across the the orange wire to the purple OR take direct from the battery to the purple wire it works. However, going from the red to the purple gets me nothing. I have only partial volta...

NOT the relays you are looking for in the top left of this photo: http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p123/NotDadsW41/webSite/2012-07-07_12-51-15_469.jpg The relay you are looking for is hidden behind the accumulator: http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p123/NotDadsW41/webSite/2012-07-07_12-52-06_77.j...

Re: No High speed fan

Well FML! I've been testing the wrong @#$%@#$ relay! On the 95 there are two up above the blower box on the fire wall. One runs the fuel pump. Not sure what the other does, but it isn't the high speed relay. That one was hidden to the right of the evap box on the firewall. Not easily seen at first. ...
