I checked at alldatadiy and found it listed under safety recalls for the 93. I didn't find it listed under general recalls or TSBs

Jeez, talk about a distinction without a difference... They've got the recalls apparently categorized so much that there'* no one place to gather them all? That'* slightly nuts.

I haven't explored this but would you be able to register at GM and just get the info that way? I came across some GM-sponsored website that I can't remember now (something like "GM Owner'* Club" or similar) where I think you just register yourself and your cars, and in return you can get basic service info and relevant info for the cars you own (which you'd think would include recalls), along with (no doubt) sales pitches and special offers to sell you some replacement vehicles similar to the one(*) you own.

Okaaay... That website is MyGMLink.com, part of GM'* site. I had some interesting experiences with it just now:

1) You can register a Bonne as old as 1993. Yes, '93, but not '92. Go figure.

2) The system doesn't like the '93 VIN. I don't know why. I tried several different ways of keying it in, and found two different places on the website where you could register it, but it failed every time and wouldn't say what the problem was. I finally sent them a long agonized email about it via their website contact link and will see what I hear.

More news as it develops.

That would be the recall where you _don't_ get the two hose clamps slapped on the end of the line, one of which is stripped... At least mine never leaked; I discovered the stripped clamp while working on something else, and put a second good one on in its place.

I notice AllData makes no mention of the original 95-C-68 campaign number. Are those "96V..." numbers a new style from GM, or is AllData making those up?

Now a few of my cars problems can be seen with the automotive recall deal:
639002 MAR 96 Cruise Control - Intermittently Drops Out of Operation
531033 FEB 96 Sunroof - Water Leak or Wind Noise
576104 MAY 95 Engine - Coolant Leak Near the Throttle Body
431003 MAR 94 Interior - Water Leak Into Pass Compartment
73-16-08 JUN 97 Interior - Excessive Vibration Of Rearview Mirror
Nothing about my security system issue and sorry a little off topic

But to be On topic, with the seperation of trans cooling lines dose that include verry slow leak from fittings to/from tranny cooler

Hmm. Not me...

Ditto... Actually it'* kind of generally noisy if you leave the inner slide cover open, but I figure that'* normal.

Huh. I had a plastic heater connection crack at the intake manifold about 7 years ago; I wonder if that was the same thing...? The local service place replaced it with a metal one; fortunately I caught the leak before it got bad. (Today'* Helpful Tip: If you smell the same funny smell at two stoplights in a row, it'* you.)

I've got the worst door-seal installation I've ever seen on all four doors, but fortunately the water can't get it at those angles.

So? Turn down the subwoofer a little.

What is your security-system issue? Did you have a separate posting about it? Got a link to that?

Not exactly; it had to do with excess pressure blowing the rubber lines out of their swaged metal fittings when gunning the engine in cold weather. But if yours are leaking, then they're not sealing as tightly as they could. (Just to be clear on this: Your car isn't qualified for the recall on the basis of whether it'* leaking or not. It would qualify on the basis of which equipment it has, what model year it is, and what state of the U.*. it'* registered in.)
