That was my point, the bike is running hot. The Twin Cam engine has always seemed to run much hotter than the Evolution engines did. I know of several people that bought then sold their TC88 equipped bikes for just this reason.<br /> <br /> If your fuel mixture is lean, it will cause your bike to run hot. A # 46 is not a good number for an S

Loosing a lot of coolant


it has to be either leaking somewhere, or it is going through the engine-check passenger floor for heater core leak, or a hose/clamp leak near or over the exhaust. Is the system holding pressure when hot? {squeeze the upper radiator hose when hot, you should feel it as a solid hose, that is not collapsed}. If you have pressure, it is some sort of external leak if you do not see smoke coming out the exhaust.

CEL blinking smoke coming from exhaust, rough idle


White smoke is indicative of burning coolant. Gray smoke is burning oil.

Have a compression test done which will often give an indication of evolving head gasket problems. If the coolant level is going down, and there's no obvious leak, its a head gasket.

Fuel guage goes to empty when I fille up and then


Probably needs a new fuel sender unit. They cost about $100. The install may be simple if there is a access door in the floor of your vehicle - otherwise you need to drop the gas tank. Expect to pay $400 to $600 to have a mechanic do it.

150000 miles. loud poppng noise in passenger compartment


You may have an exhaust system that when it heats up or all the time is collapsing internally. It would be more apparent when warm. An easy way to check is to warm car up then have someone in the car and be at the back and hold your hand near the tailpipe. You will feel exhaust coming out at idle, now have the other person rev the engine and hold the idle up does the exhaust increase. If not you have a clog and it needs to be addressed for safety. I don't think you have a cooling system problem.

1997 Bonneville stalls and dies on the road


Shell has had issues with contaminated fuel in the past cant recall what it was but it actually damaged the fuel pump. I hope thats not the issue here can get costly in some cases fuel pumps on GM are a whole assembly. DOes the gas gauge still read properly? This was a big tell with the contamination last time. Gauge would read empty even when full.
