He just purchased a brand new Seville. With the key-on engiine not running everything electrical does work. This system gave the Seville smooth drivability and performance that was usually lacking in other domestic cars of this early emissions control era. After two -- and not more than three, hours -- the solvent will dissolve the carbon. There are always new tools coming to market to bypass some of the obstacles in repairs. The nature will need to be determined through diagnosis. Fast, handles well, drives smooth and is comfortable.
Any suggestion what to look for? Does the scan tool communicate with the vehicle? The only logical explanation I have is that it was over pressure blow-off. Initially, all the codes that had a U prefix, are communications fault codes. I see engine stall code, long term battery reset. Check engine light on off, on off don't know? They may be hidden by other stuff such as the windshield washer … bottle. This no data isn't always the case, if there is a module that is not communicating at all on the buss, it may not even show up.
When the piston rings get stuck in the grooves, they can't seal or wipe the cylinder walls. Had that problem last summer. Iam trying to give you as many symtoms as I can so that you can help to direct me to the problem area. General Comments: This is a love hate car. Faults: All 4 wheels misaligned causing harsh vibration at high speed. One of the big selling points of the Northstar was its resistance to overheating, and it certainly has that. It lost all of its freon, there's no cool air, does that sound right? It will have on of the following number on it.
I will run the codescout 1500 scan tool today and will get back to you with the readout. But that is just an example. Yes, the vibration was present! Also shared with the corporate X platform was part of the roof stamping and trunk floor pan for 1973 and newer X platform vehicles. Is the circuit repair complete? Even after 15 minutes of idling the engine the gas guage read empty with a full tank of gas. A troubled past and difficult pronunciation, respectively, cleared the way for Seville's use. So in other words the air sensor would never see it to report to the computer how to adjust the fuel mixture. The voltage display on my dash would also simultaneously drop from 14.
Does the scan tool communicate with the vehicle? The new V8 no longer used the A. The former requires replacement of the affected seals and gaskets, but the latter is much easier to deal with. Any suggestion what to look for? It's job is to purge air out of the cooling system. Run the vehicle until it exhibits failure and then run the diagnostics again and see which codes have returned. The division made a major step in that direction with the current-generation Seville. The fault chart for Scan tool does not communicate with class 2 is lengthy, because there is no sure shot way to track down a fault.
Another proposal during the development of the Seville was a front-wheel drive layout similar to the. I can tell you that the Northstars require a periodic cylinder combustion chamber cleansing with a special additive usually annually. The battery should hardly have been affected by this low-level of testing. I started up the car and the electric was acting erratic as before, after 10-15 minutes engine running everything started to work as it should, radio came on, ac was working. General Comments: So far I am pleased with the vehicle. It may not have been blow-off due to overpressure, that is just a possibility. An update on my progress.
The battery is ok now, I charged it for a very long time at 10 amps. Did you change your thermostats there is one on the motor and on radiator. I am on my second set and have been very happy with the wear and performance from this tire on this car. Then go ahead with the Timing chain replacement if the chemical does not help. If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.
I started up the car and the electric was acting erratic as before, after 10-15 minutes engine running everything started to work as it should, radio came on, ac was working. Especially after any kind of overheating event. The access to the Timing chains was poor. Car-engine starts, runs, can be driven ok except for the electrial problems listed, no ac, windows, radio, etc. I will update this as soon as I hear how the car did on the road. I checked it, it needs about 1 quart, I Just bought some premix dex-cool, haven't put it in yet.
Jan 23, 2010 Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar. Com Really very frustrated after spending the last half hour composing an e-mail, only to have the system drop out and lose everything. The paint and interior have held up well too. Now it does pay to check around for prices. The battery was about 2 years old. Windows and all lights worked, dash info showed all readings.
General Comments: The car outside of the brakes was wonderful. If you ever find the problem let me know. I have included that for your reference. And has the battery been tested, it sounds like it has a low reserve. It's not unusual for pre-2000 engines to go through as much as a quart of oil every 500 miles.
