  1. Sorry about your Mom.
  2. I'd go for the '98, but not at that price. The '05 doesn't look well cared for.
  3. I work at GM dealership and have seen first hand the effects of changing your oil every 3000 miles, using the oil life monitor and not changing it at all. Changing oil every 3000 results in a cleaner engine overall with other components including cooling and air benefiting from the clean engine. Using the oil life monitor, if the factory has the algorithms correct, is ok but noticeably dirtier and a lot more build up of gunk in certain areas. Failures are usually not catastrophic but worn timing components and cylinder scoring are common. Finally, not changing the oil results in a big hole in the block around 25000 miles. I have seen too many of those and wonder how that happens when an oil change is so cheap compared to an engine.
  4. My radio turns on by itself. I think it has something to do the using the trim switch at the swim platform and my radio remotes being messed up.
  5. To say the least! No wonder it's coming apart.
  6. I'm curious what your drive is doing that requires a new clutch. I was wondering about my clutch.
  7. I use it as well. Unfortunately it's double the price up here and hurts when you guys say it's under 30 bucks!
  8. Yes, it stops rattling when you hold it. I can't see a way to tighten it unfortunately.
  9. I have an issue with the solenoid arm rattling when the corsa exhaust is off. It's much quieter when activated. Sounds like a major injector of lifter tick
  10. Great Lakes water levels forecast to continue 5-year rise U.S. Army Corps of Engineers predicts Lake Superior will break a record high level set in the mid-1980s
  11. Idle Air Control Valve. Only used in fuel injected vehicles to control the idling RPM.
  12. Dark Blue sux as well.
  13. No ramps like that around here. Looks like a five lane highway!
  14. Not allowed to power load at most ramps in my area.
  15. Mine tows great as well. I'm talking about the crappy fuel mileage, hook up & unhook, in & out of the water, parking, waiting, etc. It's a PITA with a 24 foot and probably more so with a 30 footer.
  16. It's a PITA towing my 24 footer.
  17. Interesting app. I'd buy it in a second if it gave me that fuel mileage.
  18. Iggy, does that mean you can hear VHF radio calls through your stereo system?
  19. No, that's not what I'm saying and I have no idea how you can interpret that way. I'm just wondering how many people can & do pay cash for a 100-500k boat. Simple.
  20. IMHO, the 20 year note has enabled the boating industry to increase their prices faster than ever.
  21. Ditto!!
  22. I wonder how many people could take that advice??
  23. Sorry to be blunt.. but stop throwing parts at it. Try to have it diagnosed. Could save you some money.
  24. Some of these numbers are a surprise. 38 models?? Trying to please everyone doesn't work, I guess. http://www.boattest.com/view-news/5617_sea-ray-boat-company-for-sale
  25. That's what my manual reads, is that that where you got your original figures?
