    Battery and body terminal connectors clean ??

    You would not be the first to find the starter motor positive cable or solenoid hot wire loose at the motor itself - and that's under the intake manifold.

    Had it towed to Bill Mccurly GM here in Pasco, (less than a mile up the street from me), turns out the positive battery bolt on that cable was stripped, along with that I had the sensor for my air intake fixed, it broke when I attempted my hg project. Also had an ac vacuum line fixed that also broke during my hg attempt.

    And as a courtesy they detailed my interior and gave her a thorough wash.

    Sounds like excellent service! I wonder if my Cadillac dealer will do the same for me, I dropped it off yesterday for a new waterpump, alternator, stabalizer link and fuel level sensor ground
