LSS Engine/Trans Swap from 95 to 97 ?
Oct 01, 2014 - 10:29 AM - by WhatHaveYouDoneNow!
Hello All !

I've been tasked with pulling Engine and Transmission from a 1995 Olds Royal LSS Supercharged 3.8
(wiki info: 1995 3.8 L (231 in³) supercharged 3800 Series I V6, 225 hp (170 kW) which was only installed on 100 vehicles of its kind.)

and putting it in a 1997 Olds LSS that currently has a Series II L36 non-supercharged 3.8

Is this even reasonably doable ?
I had expected I'd have to swap ECM and engine harness out, but that was when we thought it was the same series engine.

But now that I find it's a series 1 engine -> series 2 car swap, I'm not so sure.

I don't want to get into this and find that it's more than 4 full days of work.

Swapping a Turbo Subaru WRX into a NA Forester of different years, turned into a few months of re-wiring/modifying a bunch of stuff, including instruments, power mirrors, windows etc. That was a labour of love, whereas the LSS swap is just to get an LSS back up and running for a friend.

Anyone know what the swap would entail ?

Thanks in Advance !

P.S. I don't have a factory manual for either car, but I do have access to Mitchell ProDemand.

Old Annoyance: Anyone find fix?
Sep 29, 2014 - 9:46 PM - by pappyl
2003 Alero 4dr Sedan

Ever since I've owned been getting a wind rushing sound on left rear door.
Done all the obvious checks of rubbers/seals/window/door hinge positions...

Thought I'd log it to see of anyone had same problem and managed to find source.

Which light is the front turn signal light???
Sep 27, 2014 - 9:02 PM - by jessman1128
I recently replaced the hazard switch in our 2001 Intrigue. The turn signals/hazard lights started working again, but both front lights are burned out. I purchased a package of replacement bulbs at the store recently - they're orange - and took the light assembly off tonight. I discovered two different bulbs and I'm not positive which one is for the turn signal. See the picture below. The tiny bulb goes into the orange plastic portion of the light assembly, so I'm thinking that would be the turn signal bulb, but I have no idea where to find a replacement for it or even how to replace it. I didn't see any clear way to remove the existing bulb. Does it just pull straight out from the socket? The larger bulb is the same shape as the replacement ones that I bought, except the existing one is clear, not orange, and the plastic section it sits in is also clear - so it would show as white light, not orange.
