I only have 84 k miles, luckily. The trans, I might as well swap in new one instead of just a rebuild mainly to valve body as the ole P1811 code is not good etc.
Anyways, back to the locking situation, I have thrown another dose of Wd-40 in there and pin slides easily back and forth now. Hopefully it hangs in there and wont need replacement.
I also checked in the trunk today. The cable and tag was ok and works, but I used some double side Velcro to hold it up and away on trunk liner. If it does not hold, I may just drill a small hole in the tag and use a safety pin to hold it onto the liner, so there is no possible way for it to get caught on crap in trunk, and possibly open the fuel door.
I have good compression numbers, and I just did the UIM/LIM, and a lot of other sensors, plugs/wires, but I really want a supercharger (must have Boost ), and a better platform to possibly mod a little in the future, maybe a future cam, valve, and spring upgrade.
I know I have a big C Body PA, but I still like to go fast!

On the subject, were you looking in the trunk with replacement in mind, any insight?
I'm glad that you told me this way back when. There are so many times I have gotten out of the car and forgot to release the fuel door. I just pop the trunk and release it the manual way.
