Thats one of the first ones made... I wonder is its any good or if the Receiver is bad...hmmm


Were the first ones made better than the newer ones?

Cause on a good note, i pulled apart the entire key fob again and looked over the entire circuit board I found one chip (see picture) that looks as if it wasn't attached from the factory correctly. I put a dab of soder on and now it works great! :banana:

However, we haven't found the 2nd one yet and I'd like to have two fobs. I'm assuming ebay is the only place to find them?

It's nice to see that I'm not the only one who can spot a cold-solder joint!

Glad to hear it works again. I've been lurking this thread for a while. On a side note, I have seen these fobs in the junkyards on occasion.

:) Thanks Matt! I'm going to get two from SESBonne on here where he has parts for sale. :beerchug:

Now to take care of another issue that I'm having...
The driver side brake seems to squeak/ squeal when turning. There's some wetness on the lower part that looks like a lube point but i'm not sure if it's just shock related (i think they're still original) or if its wheel bearing related or something else?.

So i know i haven't posted in this post in a while but F-I-N-A-L-L-Y after a year and a half later i figured out the thermostat issue.
When i originally pulled it apart i only had one gasket like you see pictured here (i might add that the last thermostat change was done by a certified Pontiac garage my grandparents always took the car to :sadeyz: )

Image

Turns out there's two gaskets! I never paid attention to the documents and such as when i pulled it apart i only had one. Its not documented very well on much either other than "install the gaskets."

Pic of the two gaskets that SHOULD be there

Image

So, long story short and now I feel dumb, but very warm now i might add now that its getting colder, here are the part numbers you need and where to put them

Autozone:
35608 FelPro - This is the gasket for the first picture that fits around the water outlet itself
35126 FelPro - This is the critical gasket that seals up between the water outlet and the thermostat. It looks like a round gasket like the first one but with a rubber band on the inside of the round part is the best way to describe it. The pictures on most sites of this gasket is deceiving

Advanced auto
35608 - FelPro See above for placement
35126 - FelPro See above for placement

RockAuto
35608 - FelPro See above for placement
35126 - FelPro (or 25277 Stant) See above for placement

The internal dash thermostat is showing the correct temp of 195 as well. Its nice to have this working like new again :)

Now to still fix the back valve cover gasket, the rattling cat, squeeky front brake (that i feel is wheel bearing :(), hood side marker light, and side mirror from the *dang* deer, and i'll be back in business!

You may as well do both valve covers when you do, the gaskets come in sets and the front cover pps off easily. The rear you will need to unbolt the power steering pump and the rear engine lift bracket to get it off.
