I've given up on low coolant messages on my GXP's. I just splice the wires together any bypass the sensor.

I agree that you probably have more rot than you think if the shock towers are that bad.

If you put the bracket in a vice and then put an angular pressure on the mount and use an impact on the nut, it might break free. Otherwise you will have to cut it.

Support the engine/trans with a jack and remove the 3-15mm studs and remove the bracket from the car so you can work on the bench. You might end up just having to cut it off.

I don't know if you were planning on buying a new one, but I have an oil pump here from a motor with 162k that skipped time.

I wish I had some more helpful advice, but I don't. All I can tell you is I looked in the oil cap of my GXP while it was running and oil was splashing everywhere. I've had several Northstars apart, did a head stud kit on one, and timing guides and tensioners on another. I did no oil pump priming and...

I've removed hundreds of these, just grab the wiper end of the arm and push down and pull up several times, it will pop right off.

Subframes can be had for $40-75 all day long in my area, and chances are that comes with the bushings. Check www.car-part.com

$500 labor? are you taking it to the dealer? I could would a subframe swap in a couple hours @ $60/hr. No way should this take 8 hours by a professional.

I have those clips, sell them for $10 each brand new.

They are designed as a single use clip, no way to remove them carefully.

Are you 100% sure you removed all the tape from the oil passage returns?

For the fans, try turning the AC on, they should come on no matter what the temp.

If the display didn't even show, don't waste your time with that radio, the display bulbs are burnt out.

FYI, I can rebuild your original radio and it won't need re-programming. I charge $50 including return shipping.

No, it has to be a Tech2 or similar (some high end scantools ($10,000+) can do it)
