Default Woah...

I try not to speed through school zones much
So today after getting food I went through one and I noticed That I was going 39km/h and I took my foot off of the gas and I kept moving same speed... This school zone was 200metres (yeah long) so I kept moving at 39km/h the whole way I was going maybe 100rpm over idle... was my torque converter locked up? or was I coasting.. it was mostly flat... lol or Maybe I just havnt drivin my car for a while

-Yes its all back together no more problems (expt!)

1) brake fluid leak out of the rear disc brake line.
2) oil pressure still reads! low. from accel to stop it goes from 200-2 or 20 to .2
3) My gas door opener cable snapped
4) I need leather wips... So dirty seats.. heh
5) rock chip and parking lot damage... still needs touching up.
6) BIRD ****... yeah I should wash it and wax!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^
But all of those are just minor things... sure I could do a direct trade for an 03 sunfire and the dealership would still owe me money. I quess thats the price of comfort and style!

Default yup

I already did that.. Oh I was reading somthing in my magic book!!
-
oil pressure relief valve? are these **** to go on 92 egr-less series 1?
Its just a spring in a metering block... or if thats not the problem could I get a thicker spring to cheat it?
I know its not the engine... unless MAYBE the front main is loose...

I will get it pressure tested... Ive run it 1200km and no knocks or pings, I had a small rattle in my rear cylinder head area but I assume it was a sticky lifter cuz its stopped rattling -lol

If there was somthing wrong(spun a bearing-crappy oil pump). I assume I woulda tore the bottom end out of it 1199km ago?
The car has 218,000km on it or 136,000miles so it has some mile left? tranny rebuilt 70,000km ago... heads rebuilt, newish fuel ports. I quess It could be time to spin a bearing... I sure hope not... Id have to buy 92 eldorado engine for it..
