Default supercharger maintenance for 92 ssei?

hey i bought my 92 ssei back in december 06 from a guy who barely drove it and had it in excellent condition. it only had 84K miles then. ive put like 30 in juz two years. lol

anyways, i drove it all of 06 and 07 then in february 08 i parked it in driveway and moved to texas and came back last month. so now im gonna start drivin it again but i feel like i should do some maintenance on the supercharger since i never did. the old owner that i bought it for said he had juz installed a new supercharger on it right before he sold it to me. and he instructed i changed the oil and blah blah blah i dont remember.

so can anyone give me any suggestions and tips? im kinda clueless lol

the cars been heatin up quick and it started happenin since summer 07. this week i plan to take it to a radiator shop to have the radiator replaced since its leakin from one of the vertical sides on the driver side. again i dont know anytyhin about that.

it also idles rough. sometimes at a light itll come to a low idle as if its gonna stall then itll jump back up. embarrassin when i have other ppl in the car lol

please help

ps: i know i listed like 3 issues on this topic...sorry folks

The supercharger really doesn't require allot of maintenance. You should change the snout oil about every 30K miles or so, check the belt on occasion and check to make certain you don't have any slop in the charger which would mean the need to replace the coupler.

Please check out the tech section on changing the snout oil

Please keep one question to a post in the appropriate area of the forum. That way you can have a much better chance at getting an answer, plus it keep it neat and tidy for others who may also have the same problem.
