Super glue will never stand up to the heat and vibration. Use duct tape, or if you want to go all out and spend the extra bucks, use gorilla tape. Put it on tight enough and you might increase compression.

Had a semi productive day, I decided to tackle the broken trunk pull down motor on my 96' Park Avenue, as it had been broken for quite some time, and I missed that feature. :o
51.95 + Amazon Prime = awesome trunk once again.
Amazon Amazon

The trunk seals right now, it was not closing all the way because I was too lazy to take the broken motor apart till I got the new one, I could have just taken it apart and wound it down a little more by hand, but it was only off about 1/4"

Getting things fixed one part at a time
Next up my rear air struts, a compressor motor light lubing, and new front left and right AC Delco Ball Joints.
Time for those old sealed ones to come off of there, as the boots are looking pretty bad.

replaced oil pan drain plug head was rounded off by wally world staff over torquing it, after catching them putting in cheap oil instead of the mobile one I paid for. Off I 10 in Alabama, watch out folks.
also ordered radiator has a weeper pissing out a small mist under pressure from the plastic end piece.
