Yep. We junked our first one 2 years ago. Looks like a picked over carcass but it has made us money selling body parts off it.

04 was definately better than 03s. Another thing to keep in mind a properly maintained 03 that came in for it's recalls and service campaigns can be as good as an 04. Then again rarely do you see a...

Normal T7. 9-5's with a 5spd. do it the worst IMHO. It was explained to me that it's from emissions. Like a dashpot on a c900.

Yes and no.

Could be the cabin filter getting some crud growing on it. Could be the evaporator getting a funky smell to it also.

I would start with a cabin filter first. It's under the aquarium...

The faint light is a ground issue. I've chased mine for quite a while now. Cleaning all the grounds and cleaning all of the fueses has helped mine before.

All the 1996 rule means is that all vehicles sold had to be OBD 2 compliant to be sold during and after 1996.

Have you tried a turbo socket? On of those pound on sockets with LH turned teeth inside.

Heard the same here.

The whole horsepower cap is definately a GM move. Seems odd the the 2.0 in the 9-5 is rated at 220 HP while in a Cobalt SS it's good for 260.:rolleyes:

That's B.S.

Tell then to order 5510144 and they will have to look up your key code using your VIN. You will then get a cut key shaft with no guts and you can source your own remote and back plate....

I would change the filter. One of those deals where you can clean it but it's pretty slim to none that you will get it all out. Filter is cheaper than a valve body.

One of the parts you will want to check, mattering on how bad the front end damage is, is see if the radiator fans are still good. Here we only got 99 Turbos in 1978 and...
