  2. $9,500 OBO--37,000 milesGray interior and exteriorHusband originally bought for me in 2012 to replace the one I sold in '99. Turned out he loved it so much he drove it more! He loved to tinker and bought many extra parts. He recently passed away, so now I'm selling the car and spare parts as a package deal.Attached appraisal includes VIN, condition and photos. Remote starter and security system added. Spare parts include original wheels, R12 refrigerant, CRT screen, and crankshaft balancer assembly, to name a few. Also have original owner's purchase paperwork, Reatta brochure, owner's guide (with pen!) and manufacturer service manual.Located in Las Vegas, NV--email me at ricwhite00@hotmail.com Appraisal.pdf Photo_1.pdf Photo_2.pdf Photo_3.pdf Photo_4.pdf Photo_5.pdf Photo_6.pdf
  3. I need a AC low temperature semsor for a 1988 Buick Reatta . Best possibility is from a junker. Anybody parting out?
  4. need to locate a A/C low temperature sensor. 1988 buick reatta.
  5. I have a 1988 Reatta. I want to hook up my A/C gage manifold, low and high sides. The low side on the dryer/accumulator is straight forward but the high side has a smaller fitting, too small for my hoses. This is the original R-12 system. The high side fitting I'm seeing is up near the firewall, drivers side. Am I in the wrong place or do I need an adapter to convert this smaller Schrader valve to the standard hose connector? Also, any idea what is this valve size for future reference in case I need to replace a leaky Schrader there.

  7. Unit repaired in less than a week. A high voltage solder connection was corroded and replaced. My cost was shipping.
  8. I purchased the remanufactured unit XXXXXXXXXXX for $450. They still sell these at that price. I paid a little more because they claim an unconditional 2 yr guarantee. I still need a response from them to see if they have issues. Since this happened over the weekend I will give them a few days for a response and instructions. If I have problems I can hopefully go to Ebay for resolution. I bought this unit to be a backup to the original equipment which was still working but was old. I switched the old for the new because of the warranty which in this case was the right thing to do. now I'm back to the original unit. If by some chance this doesn't work out then I may need to go shopping for a repair or different remanufacture. I'll keep you posted.
  9. Thanks for the advice. I tried to disconnect power to wake the unit but no go. Went fishing in the dark and was able to turn on the radio just a you said...good to know. Switched out the CRT, back to my original, and this set up works so bottom line, my remanufactured unit went bad. Still under warranty so all is good.
  10. I now have a blank CRT screen in my '88 reatta. It has shown no intermittent problems.....just there one day and gone the next on start-up. Is there a fuse, relay or circuit breaker to check first before I tear into it? This is a remanufactured unit and 2 years old. Unfortunately the radio was in the off position when this occurred so that part of the trouble shoot I can not do. The courtesy lights work so the BCM is not it. Any help out there on first steps?
  11. I can reply for Clutch. Still havethe 1988....it's running good after a lot of maintenance. Next to the brake shop is a full service shop with a savey mechanic named Terry. They did repair my A/C....bad compressor bearing. Feel free to send me a private message if you want more information.
  12. This was a good suggestion. Took the car on the highway and monitored the ED18,19 and 20. ED18 , at times, would show 0.00 for a very long time then show more normal readings but always seem to rest mostly at 0.00. When this (0.00) happens the ED19 and ED20 would max out at 155. Seems the oxygen sensor was malfuntioning so I looked at the ED07 oxygen sensor readings that also showed 0.00 for a long period corresponding with the ED18. I parked the car and disconnected the sensor and with the key on checked the voltage to the sensor. That read 0.45 so there was voltage on the circuit. Swapped out the sensor and noticed the ease of removal (was not tight) and the wire separated from the connector. The replacement oxygen sensor solved the problem. Probably air was being sucked in around the threads of the old sensor at higher speeds( this answers my question above) and/or the connector was not making a good connection. Like I said above, the sensor I removed was fairly new but the installer could have torqued it tighter. Thanks again 2seater.
  13. I'm continuing this thread because a current issue may be related. I'm talking about a EO44 code that has occurred twice over the last 500 miles but only when driving at 60-70 mph and in general, it rarely happens. This lean code triggers the check engine soon light which clears when the car returns to slower speeds. Out of all the possible reasons listed in the FSM, what would most likely be related to higher speeds? FYI the oxygen sensor is relatively new, as are the fuel injectors (see above post), fuel pump , fuel filter, FP regulator and ECM. It's possible these injectors are running lean as they were never tested. Overall, gas mileage and idle could be better.
  14. I swapped out the dash invertor and replaced the photo cell. Now all lights work as they should. The B44 now is max'd at 96. Next is fixing the RAP system but that's another post.
