  1. Well I guess have to take it to a Buick Dealership let them find the problem. Thanks all. KYReatta
  2. About two weeks ago I went thru same process on the jacobs coil pack. I was given a phone number also, and they stated no longer made, but one reader insisted they were still avail. So now maybe the readers will listen?
  3. This morning Aug 13th. In drive applied brake, and slowly gave acceleration, and could start feeling a miss in the engine?????? Any suggestions?????
  4. Does anyone know Padgetts e-mail address? Need to get the problem solved before Aug 18th. I have to use this vehicle to pick up my daughter from school. Thanks
  5. Ok what is tcc? Just about ready to pull my hair out. Getting to point not work it.
  6. Thanks but already removed the battery, and cleaned all ground cables.
  7. Yes the fuel pump was replaced before I purchased the vehicle. Was replaced with a GM pump. You stated replace the ECM I took the ECM to autozone, and they had the equipment to test the ECM, and they stated it had no problems? Is there still a chance the ECM could be defective? Also noticed the RPM in park go from 700rpm to 800rpm just at idle.
  8. On 8/06/03 replaced coil pack, and car ran great no jerking in overdrive. Today 08/12/03 problem has started again but worse. Took coil & Module off had it tested both tested good. Parts I have replaced in March of 2003 Oxygen sensor, plugwires, fuel filter, aircleaner,plugs, transmission fluid, and filter. Checked codes by entering climate control panel and the only codes I found were C553 which indicates anytime power to the CRTC has been interrupted, and the other one that puzzles me is ECM ? thats all it indicates. Any suggestions would be appreciated because I'm at a loss>
  9. Hello Everyone Tranny problem solved today 08/06/03. Replaced coilpack about 10 minutes did a test drive problem solved. Thanks to all for suggestions made. If anyone needs a coil pack try rockauto.com For 89 reatta price was $77.99 factory GM part with one year warranty. Part # DD1D552 Thanks KYReatta <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />
  10. Hello Padgett How long have you been into Reattas. Every advise you have given me has been dead on. And from myself and I know other reatta owners we appreciate it. KyReatta <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
  11. Called summitt today regrading the number you provided for a coil pack JAC-321412 ultracoil pack for $82.69. Not being made any longer. Just wanted to let know.
  12. Padgett thanks for your information. You hit the nail on the head regarding what it feels like. Today checked the RPM's while the shutter started, and the RPM's did not increase. Spoke to my transmission tech, and he also stated it prob the coil pack also. Thanks everyone for the information. Change the coil-pack this week-end. If anyone has a good GM # for the coil pack hit me back with the number. This for a 1989 Reatta. Thanks KYReatta <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />
  13. transmission fluid changed in March of 2003 by shop known for over 12 years.
  14. It actually shift in, and out of lockup without any increase of rpm.
  15. Just started reading 89 service manual states poss it could be the modulator causing rough shifting when in overdrive? Any suggestions.
  16. Tranny problem started tonight. On E-way can off ramp that had little upgrade at about 50mph transmission started shifting back and forth. this was in overdrive. Went to D position and kicked passing gear in and every thing was ok. Just when in overdrive approching hill or incline start giving more gas transmission starts jerking. Any food for thought on this problem? Please don't tell me time for a rebuild. Thanks kyreatta <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
  17. When find out let me know also. Thanks

  21. Thanks for the information, but still need the GM part number if you have it. I have the breakdown on the rear bumper parts but the numbers I have are no longer anygood. KyReatta <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
  22. Evening all Does anyone have a current part number for rear bumper 89 reatta ? My bumper has a haze, tried rubbing compound, furniture stripper, goof off, and nothing will remove the clear coat. If the rear is still offered thru GMdirect going to replace it. Thanks KY Reata <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
  23. Got your post. You stated to remove the fan? Is that the heater fan on the firewall? I think found the condensation hole at bottom but somewhat recessed. Ran a rubber hose in, and out but still nothing. Looking in the right location? Thanks <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
  24. welcome. Post your Vin number Barney would appreciate it, that way he knows how many Reatta are still alive. <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />
  25. Stupid question? 89 Reatta does anyone know where the condensation line is located or does it have one? Most G.M. vehicles condensation dripp <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />ing on pass. side just behind the front tire. Had my vehicle serviced no leaks found had to add 3oz, air is cold but no water dripping from anywhere.
