    Fuel Cutoff For Z-rated Sts

    I own a Z-Rated 01 STS and I was under the impression that the fuel cut off was at least 140+. I was out the other the night driving home from a buddy's and decided to open her up a little. She smoothed her way rt up to 130 than just started jerking like it was stalling out. I'm assuming that would be the fuel cutoff yes? So whats up with this 130 cra#? I'm pretty sad about it

    No you'll get a chime, then the cluster will say fuel cutoff. Not sure what yours was doing but it doesn't sound like it was the fuel cutoff. It should be 150 or 155 can't remember. H rated tire cars were 130ish and S rated 110-112.

    Ok well now I'm a little worried. It is clearly stated Z-Rated tires on the inside of the door. I didn't here a chime at 130 either. The car didn't shut of or anyting and I let off of the gas within say 2 sec. Car drove fine rest of the way home. No noises no smells and rough idle. Car doesn't even have 37000 miles yet. Any ideas whats up?

    H rated, 130 mph cutoff. You said that there IS a Z tire sticker on the door? Somebody somewhere at sometime got sneaky!!! Bummer dude.

    Actually the "Z" sticker is a dead giveaway that something is wrong..
    Unlimited 2001 cars came with "W" rated tires.

    The "Z" sticker is a fraud.

    Yeah the sticker says ZR after the tire size. So what this it a fraud and my full cut off really is at 130 or what? I'm pretty devastated to say the least.

    Doors get replaced. Is the VIN the same on the door sticker as the one on the dash?

    Find the RPO list. I think it id the trunk on your car. I think it is on the underside of the spare tire cover. Then look for QCH. That is the RPO for a H rated tire.

    GM has your car leaving the factory with QCH

    hahaha
    your door was replaced and the vins dont match do they???
    always check your body panels before you buy so you dont get surprises like this later
    and you have no reason EVER to be pushing over 130 on the street

    Well I guess I will just have to ask AJ if he ever gets some time to help me out with my little 130 issue. I know you shouldn't be going that fast, but its the feeling of knowing you can
