    Couple Mystery Connectors Under the Hood

    1. Connector for EGR Vacuum regulator assembly (EVR) 2. Connector for EGR pressure sensor (PFE). I'll let you figure out why there's nothing plugged into them.

    1993 SHO potential problem

    I guess the key is if I misread the first post as "until IT turns off". If the car keeps running but just poorly, the first thing to do is don't let the owner see the inspector pull out the spark plug wires to spot the 1" deep oil in the spark plug wells. Pay cash, get the title, then **** them...

    1993 SHO potential problem

    You write yourself in another post: "Well, one would think that, because the CPS allows the car to start once it has dried out, it survives the ordeal. However, I tried a compromised CPS in a different car, and it kept on breaking down once the engine got hot."

    Word Censorship

    When is this censorship going to be fixed? Does someone not have the ability to go into the database and edit where the words are stored by xenforo? The software has permanently mangled every previous posting using car-related terms like ****, ****, *****, ****, ****, ******... These are not...

    smoking every now and then

    The SHO does not have an oil trap or catch can. All the suggestions here are about adding an aftermarket one to one of the PCV hoses - which should only be done if you actually determine that this kind of band-aid will rectify some other engine problem that you aren't going to fix the right way...

    1993 SHO potential problem

    The crank sensors seem to go out gradually in a large number of cases - running until they get heated up, then intermittently cutting out until non-functional. A cool-off, and it works again for a while, getting worse until it ultimately fails. This thread reflects my experience...

    smoking every now and then

    There's nothing to "empty" in the oil separator. It's just a plate in the top of the engine between the cylinder banks, has a pipe hookup for the PCV outlet hose in the top, and on the bottom inside it also has a simple curved pipe. There is also nothing to fix about the oil separator - it...

    90s aesthetics

    You just have to know what's in store for you parts-wise - not a car for you if you plan or would need to take it to a mechanic for every service (a mechanic who might have never seen one before and would have no idea where to get parts and doesn't have the specialized tools). It's the perfect...

    Mike93 from years ago..

    You can google the VIN or put it into a used car appraiser, see if it's been advertised, auctioned, or was sent to a u-pull.

    Looking at a 2013-2014 SHO to purchase

    It's also informative when car shopping to ferret out what options a car has from looking at pictures and comparing to packages in the original brochures. Discover what the seller might not know. For example, 2013 suede steering wheel = Performance Package. Moonroof = Group 402A. In other...

    90s aesthetics

    As problematic as any car that has gone 325K. Have replaced the crank sensor on the street where it died. Had to jury-rig shorter serpentine belt to get moving again and drive 2 hours to get a wrecker's AC compressor. Taken the bus and bummed rides to get starters. Light rail rides to a "exotic"...

    That's not so useful if you need to get to work tomorrow morning.

    90s aesthetics

    You need your own supply of "car killer" parts on-hand if it's not just a weekend toy, because there will be certain parts just-not-available. AC pulley breaks? PS pump goes out? Even starters or alternators are harder to find in stock now.

    1993 SHO potential problem

    90% crank sensor. 8% DIS module etc. 2% IAC problem. Probably why it was sent to auction. $200+ sensor remanufactured (or used) & significant labor.
