    Yeah, I heard about that dust storm that hit Phoenix and saw some of the pictures. Looks like f*cking doomsday. Shut down Sky Harbor for more than an hour. I know if I were waiting to board I flight, I sure as hell wouldn't want a jet engine ingesting all that crap. For that matter, I wouldn't want to subject my car's engine to that either.

    The wind speed reached to 100MPH, and the storm hit Tempe, Mesa, and other cities in the valley as well. At 7:15PM it was half sunny half cloudy and I entered to the building I work in to grab my stuff and head back to home. After a 10 minute email checking when I "tried" to leave the building I observed myself surrounded by a crazy storm. The visibility was less than 10 feet. So I returned back inside the building. After being trapped in the building for two hours, the storm went away.....

    Re: What did you do to your car today?



    After two months and $600, Betty's still got an electrical drain. Decided to drive her to work today since it's going to be 88º, and I wanted to make sure the A/C is working properly before I go to Washington next weekend. Turned the key, and the battery is completely dead. Fortunately, I hooked the jumper cables up to the Seville, and she started right up.

    I think the problem is a bad ignition switch that's leaving the car in the "on" position and draining the battery. Normally, with the key off, the blinkers don't blink and the radio goes off, but that's not the case right now. My mechanic wanted to replace the ignition switch, but could not get the bezel on the dash off. Since it's all scratched to hell now, I'm getting a new bezel, new dash trim (also scratched, but some of that was already there) and a new ignition switch, which I hope will finally cure the f*cking problem. In the meantime, I'm just going to disconnect the negative battery cable when she's parked in the garage.

    In other news, I had to reorder the crankshaft position sensor for the Seville, this time from Rock Auto. The dealership in Texas where I've bought other OEM parts had it on backorder. Still getting an AC Delco part, so I hope it will last longer than the NAPA one installed in 2009. Also ordered front brake pads and rotors. Will have everything installed next week. Also, since my extended warranty has less than 4,000 miles before it expires, I'm going to have him to a thorough check for any problems, including a block test. There has been no indication that the headgaskets are in danger of failing, the temperature gauge goes to the midpoint and parks with no deviation — at all — ever in the 2 1/2 years I've own the car. But I still want to check it.

    You know the 86 Toronado is a pretty sharp looking car IMO. IMO its about the only car GM released from that 84-88 timeframe that didn't look like another one of their models. Way better looking than the 86 Riveria and Eldorado, which looked like a Buick skylark.

    I have been through a few of those sandstorms in Palm Springs... Scary as shit. One of them ripped a neighbor's iron gazebo (bolted to the concrete) off of the ground, mangled it, and dropped it in our yard... One of those storms destroyed a whole storage unit of our stuff, too. Say goodbye to my favorite old turntable...

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Found out my STS has a blown speaker today That's another expense I didn't need, but I won't let it bother me. In other news I got some brake pads for it today, and my gasket kit is coming on Saturday. Now to order some studs from Jake and I can get it rolling again

    Very common on '98-'00 Seville's with Bose system. If you get a used speaker, make sure it isn't blown as well. They have a tendency to do that and Cadillac updated the speaker design in '02 or so so they were more reliable. I had two of them blown in the front doors during my 3 year ownership, and I've also replaced the subwoofer.

    There's a TSB that discussed it, apparently the fix came in May of 2000, and was applied to cars built after that date. If I sell my deVille, I'll replace both front door speakers with new ones from GMpartsdirect. If not I'll try to find a good used one.
