Yeah, that'* about what I get... never past 1/2 way thru the gauge. Was hoping to offer an easier sol'n than a tranny job.
BTW - does your DIC and compass work??? Mine crapped out in the spring of 2000 and havent even fickered on since. I am guessing either dead power supply or loose wire (GM not exactly known for the quality of their electrical systems...) but has anyone had experience with this??
Plus - how'* your fuel economy..? I just used 40 litres of fuel for 420km of *mainly* highway driving... Back in it'* prime (1992...) it got 700km to a tank on the highway w/ the A/C on. How does this compare?[/quote]
My DIC and compass hasn't worked since I bought it--about 1 1/2 ago. Every once in awhile the compass will flicker on for a sec, but then it'll go right out! no method to the madness--doesn't matter if I hit bumps, dips, pot holes, or even smooth road--it might come on then go right out!
It'* hard to tell my mileage--since I don't pay too much attention to it. but I took it easy going home and getting to work--around 175 round trip-and I got maybe 21-22 mpg. Still has the original wires too!(I know, I know!!
Funny--whether you run your heat or a/c the compressor will kick on unless you unplug it(during the winter). GM does this so the compressor will circulate the oil to lube the O rings. On all my other GM'* I just unplugged the compressor(in the winter time).
