I dealt with this one time when a customer tried to do it himself and messed up the cam alignment. The only way I could figure out how to get it back together correctly was to reference a completely different airbox removed from a car. Luckily I did take a picture so I could look at my phone while I...

Get a roll of 3/16" line for $25 and rent the flaring tool from a parts store for $0 . Don't bother buying fittings, you can reuse yours. Remove the old line, bent up a new one (no tools, only your hands) to match the old one. Watch a couple Youtube videos on how to use the flare tool and then ...

Yes the switch needs to be removed to access it.

I would have loved to give you scrap price for this car, fixed it up and made an easy $2-3k. I think you gave up way to easy.

$10 says the salvage yard will do the repairs and flip it.

Wow. Incredible find. Can I ask what you paid?

As far as OEM vs aftermarket, it really depends on the part. Some of the critical engine electrical components need to be OEM like the MAF and ICM.

The 2000 SLE itself isn't a collector or a highly sought after car, but anything with that low miles is.

Replace the ICM (ignition control module under the coils) with a good used OEM unit, not chinese garbage...not the IAC (idle air control valve).

You can either mark the positions or install the needles while the cluster is installed in the car for a perfect calibration. The cluster can be removed with no tools, very easy. The stepper motor replacement would be identical to the Chevy truck. There are 8 bulbs, very easy to notice among all the...

The 2000-2001 Bonneville used a printed circuit ribbon harness for the cluster/radio/hvac controls. You will have a really hard time tapping into it. However, the cluster doesn't receive OBD2 data like you are thinking, they are all individual signals from the PCM. You'd need to tap into the OBD2 po...

The shift cable is extremely easy to remove. I use a flat blade screwdriver to pry it off the arm ball joint, then pull the metal clip straight up, and then push the plastic ears in and pull the cable towards you.

Google it, there are tons of pictures. Even with the engine cover in place you can see it routed. https://s.aolcdn.com/dims-global/dims3/GLOB/legacy_thumbnail/788x525/quality/85/https://s.aolcdn.com/commerce/autodata/images/CAB40BUC021A0104.jpg https://s.aolcdn.com/dims-global/dims3/GLOB/legacy_thum...

I disagree here. From the factory there is a retainer clip that mounts to the black bracket on the throttle body. it is routed correctly, but looks like an aftermarket cable or someone put a large hose around it.

A bad MAF can make a car fall on its face. I'd lean towards that.

I have them, but they aren't really cost effective to ship. Where you located? I'm in Browerville MN 56438.

Are you looking for the whole subframe assembly, or just the lateral links (the large rear tie rod ends)?

I do have the rust-free part that you need, but you need to check into the replacement costs before getting too far into it. Usually if a shock tower is rusted, the rest of the car is also in poor shape.

Probably has to do with what side the freon enters and exits the evaporator.
