PostSubject: Lt1 tune up - help needed!   Sun Jul 15, 2012 9:56 am

What's up guys, my brothers 96 Fleetwood started running rough and stalling at idle, time for a full tune up. Problem is my work is in Brockton, and the car is at his place in Westminster(out by Fitchburg). No AAA.

Was wondering if somebody could give me a hand doing the Plugs, wires, opti, water pump and coolant temp sensor. It's in a garage, we have a jack, jack stands, tools, and beer. Will give gas $ and $ for your time as well. Im sure I could do it myself but I never have so Id like someone with experience to help.

If anybody is interested please let me know.. Trying to save my brother some money by not paying for a tow to my work, plus if I have one of the master techs at my work do it we still have to pay $45 an hour for labor..

This won't be for 2-3 weeks if I had to guess as I'm doing 6 day work weeks right now.

I (might) end up doing it myself, but i know running the wires is a pita and I've got some big mitts, just don't want to get in a jamb lol.

Thanks, -Paul

This on my old gold Fleetwood? The opti had 53k on it when I sold it to him. That rough idle was happening with me too. I swapped the o2 and did intake gaskets too. Never did the plugs or wires though.

Ya it's your old fleet, I figure if we're going to do it we should replace everything..
