Re: I am ready to blow this car up. Won't start now.

Have you tried starting it in neutral?

Re: Engine Speed PS Sensor

I don't think the switch is the cause of your lack of power steering. The switch tells the engine to raise the idle speed when the wheel is turned to full lock to stop it from stalling.

Re: '92 SVX on BaT

I was wondering when somebody would post this. There's hope these cars will finally begin to appreciate in value.

Re: Radiator Needed

Not recommended. They are out of stock once again and who knows when/if you would receive it.

Re: HVAC code 14 & 15

That mouse looks like it's in a prime stage of decomposition for major stinko-rama! The rainfall must have made it even worse.
Good job on the clean out.

Re: amr engineering aluminum radiator batch

It's a very similar scenario to the demise of Stebro Exhaust. Great product with terrible customer service and no communication.

Re: Might have a blown headgasket

Keep an eye on the gauge. If it's overheating you should see bubbling. Has it been hot as hell there like it has been here in Quebec?

Re: Fender liner (right side) and engine under cover

Re: crankshaft pulley

There may be something else causing the failures. I never replaced a pulley on any of my 3 SVX and one of them had nearly 400,000 km. The '97 I am driving is close to 300,000 km.

The 2.5 pulley is...
