M62'* only use one bottle. But get two so you have a spare.

One quick question: DO they still recomend the 30K change on the M62 or is it sooner?

They change their minds. I know at one point, they said sealed for life. Then it was 36k or so?

My 95 gets it once a year. 93 twice a year.

Default UPDATE

Ok, I went to the parts store at lunch and got a bunch of tune up stuff. I also did the calibration on the compass (thanks to the FAQ in Techinfo). Now my traction control seems to be working, button light goes on and off, traction off light goes on and off on the dash...don't know that the 2 are related, but it works now.

I did verify the sunroof does not pause or stop at the closed position going either from open to vent, or vent to open. And I do believe it'* got a misfire, I'll find out if the plugs/wires help that out. Thanks again.

Heavy acceleration, little bit of a rough idle at start up, but really only does it when I have my foot into the throttle. I'll try to get the plugs and wires in tonight and get an update.

Sounds like you do need some plugs. PIck up some dielectric grease to put on the DIS with the plug wires and anti-sieze for the plugs.

I'm not here to insult you, just informing.

Hi Chad,
Do you have pics of the car you can share?
As a fellow 93SSEi owner, I've experienced some similar challenges.

According to the GM tech manual, if the sunroof motor does not go to the closed position automatically, the motor needs to be replaced. This same manual states the Supercharger oil NEVER needs replacing.
So, lets take what it says with a grain of salt.
My sunroof had a mind of its own, until I made a few slight adjustments. When it'* in the vent position, try pushing the button to vent again. The roof may rise a bit more. If it does, push and release the button on the opposite side quickly to close. It might come down on its own and stop. When it does, this should be your closed postion. Mine needed a bit of height adjustment to get it in the proper spot. (tech info)
Mis-firing: My car did the same thing. New plugs and wires helped, but it still wasn't 100%. My problem was a bad coil pack. (tech info on how to check)
I replaced the defective coil pack, and no problem since.
Traction Control: Mine doesn't work. The traction off light is alway on the dash. When nice weather comes, I'll clean the wheel sensors and see what happens.

Check your sunroof drain tubes!!! Make sure they are connected. You can lower the headliner to check and make sure all 4 (2 front, 2 rear) are connected. Avoid a potential disaster (personal experience, see my post Water Water Everywhere) Check your weather stripping as well. (same post)

O/M: I found one in the glove box of my favourite junkyard donor car, a '95SSE. It has been kind enough to supply a few parts. This manual covers the SSEi. Wrong year, but basically the same.

Bosch: I work for Bosch, hydraulics division. We are affiliated with Bosch tools, appliances, and of course, Robert Bosch automotive. From the advice received on this forum, not even I use Bosch stuff on my car!!

Congrats on the car, and welcome. Everyone here is very helpful, and have provided a lot of much appreciated, cost saving help for me!

Cheers,
Adam
