TSD Wheel Restoring
Jul 27, 2014 - 2:26 PM - by ggpels
Now that I have eight extra wheels and centers for my two 1990 TSD's, I'm planning on restoring a set of rims to new condition for the best condition TSD I'm working on.
Does anyone have experience restoring the aluminum wheels for the TSD?
The first thing I plan on doing is removing the rubber.
Next my guess is that the rims have a clear coat on them that will need stripping?
What I see as a pain is all the some what square holes along the perimeter, what is the best way the clean that area?
Then what type if clear coat to use?
I like I said if anyone has experience please share!
Thank you in advance.

My 88 Trofeo survivor
Jul 24, 2014 - 1:16 PM - by alvissaladin

Full Trofeo option with FE3 suspension and only 35.000 Miles from first owner. A GI left it at Pforzheim/Germany when he go home to the states. It stored 10 years at a local scrapper and nobody wants it. The Toronado is not a popular american car in Europe. I bought it for only 800 bucks. I had some trouble with the transmission and ignition but fixed it with time.

A actual little problem is the non working ilumination at console and radio/AC modules. Also no diming of instrumental lights. Maybe a defective diming switch.
Do anyone knows where I get a new one ?

2000 Intrigue AC problems
Jul 24, 2014 - 12:59 AM - by audiofreak97
First post here. I'm sure this has been covered but my quick search didn't pull anything up.

I've even googled the problem with no real fixes on my end.

2000 GL. Manual air control. With the AC turned on the indicator light will flash on and off along with the compressor shutting off and on. Mostly off. I've checked the AC pressure, topped off with some AC Pro, even went as far as swapping the ignition switch (which had 2 darkened contacts) and I've still got the problem.

Is there a known problem with the ac control board on these vehicles? Is there an easy fix if there is a problem with the board, or do I need to find a replacement at the wrecking yards?

Is there someplace else I should be looking?

I haven't gone as far as replacing relays or the pressure switch, but It's the next on the list if I can't get this figured out. If someone has any insight on this I'd love to hear it. I hate to keep throwing parts at this problem.

Thanks in advance.

High Pitch Noise When Accelerating
Jul 24, 2014 - 12:49 AM - by pearjas
Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum. I bought a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero from my grandmother in November, and so far, I've had some rough luck with it as they didn't maintain it very well despite it only having around 48,000 miles.

The current issue I'm having with it confuses me a bit. It leaks antifreeze very slowly. I've been told by a reliable source (and my mechanic) this is typical as the antifreeze
over time can become corrosive, and the whole gadget needs to be replaced. I've accepted this and hope to get it fixed next month.

The other issue I'm having, which I'm trying to figure out if it's related to the above is: When I first start to drive, or if I've been sitting and accelerate again, the engine makes a higher-pitch noise than usual. It always goes away once I start driving, and it doesn't happen every single time I drive the car, but tends to come and go frequently. When taking
off and it makes this noise, the harder I accelerate, the more the engine sounds like it's going to blow. Again, it always goes away though. Could these issues be related? This is the problem I'm a bit more concerned about.
