I also believe that any repair is possible, that'* why I ended up deciding to purchase this car. I'm trying to get the right information and instructions from this forum and won't start the repair untill I have it. I'm going to look into getting a manual, the Helm manual was suggested by I've never heard of it, can anyone let me know where to get one and possible pricing. Tools.....well my wife and friends call me "Tim The Tool Man" so I think I have that covered. As for confidence, it'* building more and more as I now know I have a support team behind me.

Thanks
Frank

I'm going to keep an eye on those manuals BillBoost37 thanks. On a different note, I let the 95 at my son'* school and he told me that both teachers tried to read the check engine light codes and he told me that both teachers couldn't get it to work. I don't understand and he didn't go into detail. One auto teacher worked as an auto mechanic at GM for 16 years, what'* up with that??


I'll ask him to go in more details later on.

I'm going to have to be doing a lot of the same stuff for my 95 ssei -

1) New EGR (if anybody has a used one, hook a brother up)
2) Front left wheel bearing (found a great deal here ebay )
3) Fix the e-brake

Once those are fixed it should pass MD inspection. I'm not 100% sure if the ebrake is needed to pass though.[/url]

The ebrake should be required. And most likely it'* an adjustment or a frozen cable.

EGR valve check GMPD and see if it cross references with other vehicles and years. That'll be your best way to locate one cheap.

Default NEED HELP

Guys, is there a chance you can help me out? My husband will be out of town on business for most of the next month and has asked me to start ordering parts for the above list. Can we start off with the supercharger? He already has the coupler and he directed me to http://www.cardomain.com/ride/479367/2 (Kenneth Lee'* page). Are these the parts that I order for his model year supercharger?

There were suggestions of other parts he should get and he asked me to buy them (intake gaskets, 180 thermostat and belt). I'm not mechanically inclined so I would appreciate all the help you can give (ie. part numbers, web sites, etc.)

I know I'm asking for a lot but would truly appreciate your help. I'll check back periodically for any replies. Once I complete this, then I'll carry on with the remainder of the list. Thanks again all.

Cathy
