Learning how to test a GM distributor less ignition system rather then guessing an replacing parts is the proper way to diagnose . Pulling a couple of pull wires of the same coil an having someone crank the engine over to see if there is spark would the first test . If there is no spark ,could be the ignition module , or the crankshaft postion sensor .

A code P0141 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: open or short to ground in the wiring harness O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance O2 heater element resistance is high Internal short or open in the heater element Note: Typically a failed catalytic converter does not cause this code. You're more likely to see a P0420 code for a failed converter

One quick way to rule out the catalytic converter is to get a thermal imager and check the inlet and outlet temp of the cat with the engine running. A good cat will have a higher temp at the outlet. If not then the cat is bad.

When a sliding sunroof goes wrong there are no half measures when it comes to repair, especially if it is to be used and expected to be reliable.

The amount of routine maintenance that can be carried out is small but fortunately there is a variety of spray cans available to squirt lubricants into inaccessible places so periodically opening the roof and standing in the opening with a good flashlight squirting lubricants along cables and runners is a small price to pay for reliability. The job is finished off by emptying a pint of water into each corner of the trough to ensure the drains are intact and clear.

Gaining access to the sliding roof gear mostly means removing the headlining. The cables are almost certain to need replacing and it is likely a cable jumped a pulley because something wore out or broke.

It is not a suitable job for a home mechanic and not a suitable job for lots of professional repairers. It requires a deal of experience or constant referral to a repair manual and lots of patience and attention to detail. It is a job best entrusted to a specialist...

misty is a normal occurrence
physics thingy
inside car temp hotter than out side the car so mists
or other way around then normalizes

thats a good kit and you will do well with it
a regular mechanic can fit those
have it gased elsewhere ..... where the price is right

not that bad a DIY
to install those components is possible if you have the time and skill level
just have to watch you dont burn yourself as you degass the cars current system

its just the air con people want to sell you a new compressor etc
usually you can get a good used AC compressor from a wrecking yard

My 97 Grand Prix sunroof tracks are offset. My driver side track is in the closed position, and the passenger side track is in a half open position. When the problem happened I was closing the roof and heard a hard clicking. It stopped working from that moment on. The tracks werent offset as much as they are now before I took the glass off. When I removed the glass, the passenger side track sprung back about 6 inches. The motor works, but the tracks only move about a half inch forward and backwards. Its cable operated and my guess is that one side jumped the track or a gear or something. Anybody help?

How much oil did you add? Did it fill it back up? Was there an oil "puddle"under the engine when you stopped?
