Yup, I read that. The information is still valid, and just might help someone else who pops into this thread. Besides, confirm that it has the Delphi, as all 3800s did not. Her dad remembers a recall...he doesn't know what the recall was.

Well, what other recalls were there that apply to my year? Are there other ones that those recall notices would have been referring to?

NHTSA Recall History
1992 w/console shift: Control cable on some cars may disengage from bracket and falsely indicate gear position.

1992: Parking-brake lever may release one or more teeth when applied.

1992-93: Transmission-cooler line in cars with certain powertrains, sold in specified states, can separate at low temperature.

1995 w/Twilight Sentinel: Excess current leakage can cause loss of headlights and parking lights.

1996 w/3.8-liter V6: Backfire during engine starting can cause breakage of upper intake manifold, resulting in nonstart condition and possible fire.

1996: Damaged capacitor may cause failure of "Key in the Ignition" warning chime and driver-seatbelt-unbuckled warning chime and indicator lamp; other functions may also be impaired.

1997: Seat cover trim on a few cars does not meet flammability requirements.

1998-99: A faulty fuel-pressure regulator may allow a fuel leak to enter the intake manifold, resulting in possible fire. Dealers will inspect and replace affected parts.

1999 w/chromed aluminum wheels: Studs on some wheels could break, causing tire/wheel assembly to separate.

1999: Clip that secures linkage of transmission-detent lever can loosen and disconnect; indicated gear would then differ from actual state of the transmission.

Yes, there were others for the '98. Were they for your specific vehicle? The best place to check on that is with a dealer. They can run your VIN, and see if they fit your car. NHTSA would have general information reagrding recalls for your model year. I see Petraman has done that search for you.

crap, well I guess I'll have to ask him about that letter. Although I know for sure that my car has (had) the original FPR in it

It sounds like the FPR will have to be replaced regardless of who made it. However, not all had the Delphi regulator. Some had those that were stamped simply with "Made In Germany" which obviously is not the Delphi regulator. You'll be in good hands with those who will be driving out to help you.

You can also call the 800 pontiac number and the nice people answering will run your vin and see if any recalls etc are outstanding.

Keep in mind any recalls for a 93 are expired. They won't do them now.
