I got a turbo off of a 6.5 at a junkyard. Have been planning on putting in on a 5.3 with a knock (pic related but recently got a new rod pressed on it) I got for $300 but still haven't done it. I've had the thing over a year now...

Feels bretty gud mayne. So much room, too. Gonna use it as a "camper" on a euro roadtrip next summer.

GM-4 or GM-8? Either case they should be pretty reliable turbos. Mine's working fine, probably never been replaced in the 186k miles it's done.

Are you okay, user?

Just replaced my front shock mount bushings. It had Energy Suspension ones when I bought the car but they must have been well over a decade old so they needed replacing. Luckily the OEM ones weren't in there because that would have been a bitch to remove. Rides a million times better now.

After my bills and rent I'm gonna replace my shifter ball seat and install my new exhaust.

DeathDog

You flushed a hot engine with cold water... probably.

Thermostats don't like sudden changes in temperature as there's a metal filament in them that shrinks and expands due to the heat of the coolant. This needs to happen gradually else the metal filament snaps and closes the thermostat permanently. Which is what likely happened in your situation.

So the thermostat was most likely the issue. Which you already fixed.

Lord_Tryzalot
Lord_Tryzalot

Could be the thermostat, but probably wasn't bled.

I usually just pour water in it full, then start it up till it gets warm or starts overheating, then quickly shut er down, pop the top radiator hose off, and pour water in. If it comes out the top of the radiator, you're good, but if it doesn't take any, it probably has a fucked thermostat, or isn't hot enough.

A combination of Google, YouTube, forums for the car you own, and simply asking Veeky Forums. I didn't get into cars until I was 26 years old. It's really not too bad as long as you take your time.

Look around your area for others that drive the same brand and you can build up a network of bros to get parts or help from.

It's a GM-8. Had to rebuild it with new bearing/bushing and seals since it had a bit of play and looked like it was leaking a nice amount of oil. The compressor and compressor housing look like they touched a bit but it shouldn't hurt too much for the 8-10 psi I plan on running it at.

It would be easier to list the stuff that isnt broken or needs repair

all glass, including mirrors
wipers

indicator and wiper stalks
hazard button

No idea where it's coming from, it doesn't drip in the driveway it just shits it all out when it gets too hot.

Apart from that it's fine, only odb1 code is for "VRIS #1 solenoid" Which from what I can gather is like "V-tec" but intake based.

GTX isn't bad, probably on the same par as Delo 400. I used Castrol RX Super in mine for a very long time.

Knocking when coming off throttle or weight off that side is likely the lower control arm bushes. Being 1990 if she hasn't had the bushes re-done they will be flogged out with a fair bit of play.

Fix her up and hold on to it. That bus will treat you well for years yet.

The CEL on my car has been on for over a year. It shakes violently when stopped and the AC is on. Sometimes it dies when you turn full lock while reversing.

The rear passenger side strut (I'm assuming its that) is fucked and makes a loud rattle while driving, loud enough that I need to turn my radio full volume to hear anything

I got the car for free about a year ago, and I'll be replacing it as soon as I find something that fits my needs.

You'd be surprised how many people drive old, large american SUVs, especially Suburbans and Tahoes

Our tenant drives a damend 7.3 Powestroke Ford Excursion

These cars were almsot always registered as "light trucks" when they were new, making them a lot cheaper to buy and own due to different tax levels. Since then they have been re-registered as standard passenger cars as it gets free to do so after a certain number of years. You also have to redo some suspension stuff to lower the maximum allowed payload to 3500kg or lower.

When you've done this you can register it as a normal car that anyone can drive with a standard car license

I might actually be over reacting but is it actuatlly alright to just slap everything back together with wd? Should i even be using lube cus i'm absolutely scared if i fuck the torque specs parts would snap once i hit a pot hole

iluvmen
iluvmen

New rules came in 2016. Light trucks can be re-registered to passenger cars as long as the weight of the car + driver is below 3500kg, or thereabouts. Only have to pay a 500kr fee.

This really made the price shoot up on all american SUVs and pickups, but I can't claim I've seen a lot more of them around lately.

You don't have to use lube, and probably shouldn't. If you're afraid something's gonna snap, just be extra careful with the torque.
I also highly doubt anything's gonna snap if you barely overtighten stuff. Should be good.
I've been tightening stuff by hand and "feel" because I don't give a shit, but stuff has been working swell so far.

Previous owner installed SSD kit

Where's yours mounted? The PO on mine mounted it on top of the intake. Worse spot IMO for heat soak. I dirched the kit because it was too big. Relocated it to the passenger compartment and plopped a 80mm case fan on top to aid heat dissipation. Worst it got was kind of warmish to the touch on a 38° day (no ac in truck also)

Recently noticed:
rust in spring seat
oil crud coming out of turbo compressor inlet
Known for a while:
tiny coolant leaks on water pump/turbo connection (both sides)
low idle
That last one is what really confuses me. I know my car very well and I just can't figure out where it's coming from - according to the ECU it's sitting at 850rpm like it should, but my tach says 600 and it definitely feels more like 600 than 850. Next step in diagnosis will be to hook up an oscilloscope to the CPS and check whether that signal is looking weird.

Pic related, I recently opened up the traction control/ETS ECU in search of answers (this thing ultimately regulates the idle speed), dumped and decompiled the program ROM in the process but couldn't find anything wrong with the ECU.

Super jelly on the roof marker lights, though. Those aren't allowed in Norway.

Did you cut out holes for the bumper lights or were they there originally?
Been planning on hiding some extra lights in my bumper, but not entirely sure about using original holes or cutting new ones.

Thanks! It haven't seen road salt before I bought it, so it's completely rust free.

Nothing serious planned for camping as of yet. Won't go until next summer, and only if the dosh says yes.
But for basics I was thinking of a cheap mattress, folding chair and table, a tiny kerosene stove and whatever else I might need.
Long-term I might build some sort of bed/storage compartment/table hybrid which I can remove when I need the car for dd again, and maybe a "tent" to place behind the barn doors when camping. Can't remember what they're called, but you probably get the idea.

Haven't really settled on anything yet and was pretty much just planning on using it as a dry place to sleep.

The front driving lights are mounted on my brush guard. I think that's how yours is set up right? Back in the day it was an ambulance, so what you see in the bumper are the old siren speakers. Haven't hooked anything up to them, but one day a PA system might be nice.

As far as camping goes on mine, I'm still in the planning stages too. Been looking at the van folks over at veekyforums.com/thread/16178633/cars for inspiration, but it's hard because they have so many ideas it's overwhelming haha.

You ever get tempted to try using Veggie oil instead of diesel? Previous owner of mine claims he ran it with no problems but I've seen too many horror stories online to try it, not to mention it's winter time here so it would just gel up in the tank.

TreeEater
TreeEater

Yeah, they're mounted on the brush guard, although one of the mounts broke off so I'm still looking for a welder. Running without brush guard now so I can keep the lights on top of the bumper. Better than running stock high beam, for sure.
I'd replace those sirens with lights, but I guess a PA could be fun at times.

Those van guys have a lot of neat ideas. Should probably lurk some more in their threads.

Have only heard bad things about veggie oil and 6.5's. I don't think it's readily available where I live either.
And, as you said, winter would be bad.

Your headlights are looking a bit cloudy. Considered replacing them?

CouchChiller
CouchChiller

Yea, my brush guard isn't looking too how nowadays either. I wanna take it off and sandblast/paint it come spring.

As far as replacing the speakers go, I would love to drop the brush guard and get a new bumper altogether, but that's further down the road.

On the topic of lights, I want to swap out my Hella driving lights for a set of LEDs, as they're showing their age. Also, I've actually thought about getting a new set of lenses for the headlights too. It's getting to the point where they aren't lighting up the road well in bad weather. There's a set of glass lenses on Ebay I've been eyeing but first I must replace my oil cooler lines. They're starting to leak...

On a slightly unrelated note, what tyres and rims are you using?

I'm just running your standard stock steel rims and GT Radial Adventuro MTs. Stock tire size. Nothing too fancy.

I want to get a second set of rums and bump down to AT or road tires, and keep the MTs for when I need them. Right now I'm burning them as I'm mostly just driving on paved roads at the moment.

What about your setup? You still running those wheels in those old pics?
