Lookin GOOD Kimmers! That black is SHARP. You're not very proud, are you?

I don't think that wood grain dash is stock. I think it was probably gray. Is everything working ok on the car?

And can we see under the......hood?

No Im not proud at all, im mean it only took me an hour to get all these pics up, lol.

To get certified the car went through.....

new wheel bearings- hub type on right front

reline disc brakes front and pads installed

brake caliper slider guide

brake hose line replacement front left

brake wheel cylinder replace rear pair

Wheel cylinder

brake fluid

reline drum brakes rear

=$1000.00 split by the prev owner and ourselves.
(half and half on the parts and service)
I am experiencing a bit ...not as much as at first ....vibrating while stopping in the front end. It seems to be going away and im told that the brakes pads are just setting themselves, but ive been driving it since Sat of last week. How long does this take? Crappy Tire (Canadian Tire) did all the work. Having all this work done what does it tell you about the car?

What does seeing under the hood do for you? I can get a pic after I take Keirsten to school

All that work isn't out of the question. The car is 10 years old. I think you're doing great, and hopefully you'll get alot of miles out of it! If the vibration doesn't go away in the brakes after say.....metric.....50km or so city driving, you may have a warped rotor or two. Rotors are easy to change and fairly inexpensive.

I was just curious to see under the hood for purely selfish reasons. I wanted to see which EGR valve you have. The 92 SE and SSE had none, it was the only year that didn't. Itty bitty bad judgement on GM'* part. I believe, however, that the 92 SSEi got the same digital EGR valve I have on my car, which would be good news for you. Less risk of valve burn! The next thing you should do is change the thermostat to a 180. You can probably wait til spring for that considering your winter temps up there. GM learned their lesson on that one in later years and ditched the 195. The cooler thermostat is just insurance to prevent intake problems (not as bad on SC models) and a cooler more effiecient combustion. It gets pretty spooky when these things hit 220 in stop and go traffic!

kimmers,

Cardomain.com is a great site for hosting your pics. I have about 9 pics of my car on there. You will also find about 100 other bonnevilles there as well. Good luck with your car!!

The EGR is there, but it looks different than my '95. BTW Kimmers, It looks like it is time for some engine detailing (a bit dirty), but thats just my opinion. I would, however, consider replacing those wires. They look like the original spark plug wires to me. Of course I am only looking at a photo.

Okay, now that I have made you feel bad, I just want to say that your car is one sweeeet ride! Dirt washes off, but the performance is there to stay!

Will, I thought that the wood dash was an option on the '92. I know that they have kits out, but I believe that GM had factory wood available (not sure if it is sim or real, but it was an option--especially on the SSE/SSEi package). Most '92 SSEi'* I have seen have it. Looks great in my opinion.

Kimmers, I think you made a good decision in purchasing that car. The 1992 had some unique features that later years don't share. The body color rims and the wood dash being two. Not to mention the fact that in 1992-1993, the SSE/SSEi had unique grills as compared to their SE counterparts. Truely a milestone in the Bonneville legacy.

PS, Yahoo also has free photo hosting.

I think all of the Bonnevilles up through 93 got the wood grain dash pannel/trim... 94 was the first year for the grey trim... I think she could find an SSE in the yard and take the grey trim, I think it would look better... But I love her car.. Kim hon, a little pressure washing will make it look like new, under the hood I mean ... ... Later
Tehe, who does a pressure washing? And what is the average price just so I dont have to worry about getting ripped off. Just a pressure washing? or does it need some degreeser too? What do you guys think>

my car left me today, hubby took it into work with him to feel it out he says, I know that he really going to show off his wifes exceptional ability to pick an awesome car. I know he is going to show it off!!!!! So im left with the cadillac fleetwood or however you spell that....what a shame... :P hehe.......
Honestly, there is not another car that makes me want to wonder, and Ive driven quite a few, Im very very please with the bonneville!~
Thanks guys for all your help, Im learning tons here Hubby is already impressed that I told him we need to replace the thermostat...and why.
TTYL
Kim

Most do-it-yourself car washes have pressure wash options. In the U.*. they run about $1.00-$1.25 for five minutes. A word of caution, however, If you wash your engine when it is hot you run the risk of cracking the block, heads, or manifolds (intake or exhaust). If I were you, I'd take a plastic bristled brush and some dish soap to your engine. You can easily remove the plastic Supercharger Cover and the plastic cover that hides the wires looped over the nose of the Supercharger--just be careful when you do so. These are plastic and have been exposed to heat--they may be brittle after 11 years. After you remove them, carefully scrub them on both sides with plenty of soap. then rinse them and let them dry while you work on the rest of the engine.

Dish soap and water will chemically bond to the oil/grease without damaging your plastic, painted, and non-painted surfaces. The next area you should clean is the top of your Supercharger. Please be careful that you don't bump the fuel injectors or the fuel rail too hard. After these have been washed and rinsed, you will be able to see what areas you missed. Touch these areas up next--before going to greasier areas. These parts are powdercoated a light baige, so working with an oily brush will smear grease on them that will be difficult to remove, that is why you do these areas first.

Next, scrub any other surface that is visible (start with plastic first--like you intake, and work your way around the engine bay). Always rince before starting a new area--you will be able to tell if the oil is gone this way.

Finally, don't forget the under-hood light. This (along with the inner fenders and radiator) tends to be forgotten because it is not "the engine", but believe me, you want a clean light for when you are troubleshooting in the middle of nowhere after dark.

Again I stress doing this with a completely cold engine.

If you are so inclined, there are products on the market that you can spray on the engine to "dress it up". If you use these, please follow the instructions as most of them are an oily substance that may smoke or catch on fire if applied to an extremely hot surface. I personally don't use them because they collect dust. My engine (no pics available) is very clean and easy to maintain now that I did the initial degreasing.

Total cost: $.07 CND (adjusted for exchange rate) in dish soap and 1-2 hours of your time.
Benefit: the personal satisfaction of having cleaned the engine yourself (big ol' pat on yer back) and the pride one has when showing off her car to all her jealous friends. A clean engine is also a lot easier to maintain, as you won't be affraid of getting dirty when you check your oil while filling up your gas tank on the way to work!

Have some fun...get rid of the previous owners filth!
