Well it seems the o-ring substitution for the clips worked okay, as I haven't had any trouble yet. But now I just found that I have a minor leak with the radiator coolant somewhere... I think... and I also have the tranny running dry alot. I have to refill the tranny fluid before I drive the car every time now cause the dip stick is dry. I think I have to replace the gasket, what do you guys think?

BTW do your cars rev past 8000 rpms easily? Mine does it at every other turn, and now and then for straightaways, weird... cause I let go of the gas pedal too and it still goes up...??? Any comments?

8000 rpm? Wow... my car red-lines at 6000 rpm, and I've never had it much above 5000.

If you want to know how to do the trans fluid and filter go here. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com:/forum...opic.php?t=349
Usually you will get a new gasket along with a new filter kit.

I think your tach is bad. I find it hard to believe that your engine (which redlines at 5k IIRC) could ever touch anything past 6k. If you were hitting 8k you would be breaking pushrods and valve springs easily.

The most I've been able to get out of my Tach was 6000 rpm'* at 160 Km/Hr!

I've never hit over 5000rpms. what you might wana try just a thought cuz it helps is changing your air filter if yours is clogged up the air isnt gettin into the engine right.
about ur leak if its not from the radiator specifially it might b in the rubber part between the radiator hose by the thermostat and the other part. thats what i got but its a very minor leak dont evne know if its there.

I thought the PCM locked up the TCC 'no matter what' at 140 km/h ?

How you did that I'll never know. Reason is, my '92 SE (redline 5500rpm) always shifts at 5k, which is roughly 40mph in 1st, and 80 in 2nd (won't redline 3rd on account of the speed limiter). If you manually shift it into the specified gear it will hold it until 5500rpm, which is about 45mph and 85mph respectively. And if say I am doing 60 and throw the tranny in 1st, it will drop down into 2nd, then hit 1st once I slow to 35mph or so. It appears on my car at least the computer has built-in safeguards for the trans.

The PCM locks the power train to a limit of 107MPH or about 170Km/Hr.

I think my Tach might have acting up that day, since I've never been able to get past 5500 (red line) since then. I just recently resoldered all my remote starter connections including the loose connection to the Tach lead wire. The people who installed my car starter just used those "speedy clips" & black electrical tape!
