Falcon's weren't made in the US, so I don't have any information on TSB's or any other insider info on them, sorry. I would guess that it's your motor. How do you know that they are working correctly? Your dealer might be the best choice for a diagnoses on this problem. I wouldn't get it fixed there, but have them tell you what's wrong and take it somewhere cheaper to actually get the work done.
Ok, thanks a lot. I got a service due which I am getting done by the dealer so will ask them to have a look at it for a diagnosis.

How hard is it to replace a seat motor on a 98 Grand AM GT? How much do they cost? should I try looking at the junkyards maybe?
Is your vehicle a V6 3.1L or V4 2.4L? What is the eight digit of your VIN number? (T or M?) Also, what is your zip code?There are three reversible motors that operate the Power Seats. The front and back heights of the seat are controlled by different motors which can be raised or lowered independently of each other by pushing the front or rear Height Switch. When the Entire Seat Switch is pushed to the UP or DOWN position, both motors run to move the front and back of the seat at the same time.The Forward-Back Motor is operated by the Entire Seat Switch. When it is held in the FORWARD position, battery voltage is applied through the switch contacts to CKT 285 and the Forward-Back Motor. The motor is grounded through CKT 284 and the contact of the Entire Seat Switch to ground. The motor runs to drive the seat forward until the switch is released.With the Entire Seat Switch in BACK, CKT 284 receives battery voltage and CKT 285 is grounded. This reverse polarity causes the motor to run in the opposite direction and drive the seat backwards.The front and rear Height Motors operate in a similar way when the front or rear Height Switch is operated.The entire seat is raised when the Entire Seat Switch is held in UP. This applies battery voltage to CKT's 283 and 287, and ground to both the front Height and Entire Seat Switch contacts. Both motors run to drive the entire seat up. A similar action occurs to move the entire seat down.Each motor is protected by a built-in electronic Circuit Breaker (PTC). If the Seat Switch is held too long with the seat obstructed or after the seat is fully up or down, forward or back, the PTC resistance increases. The resistance returns to normal after voltage is removed from the motor terminals.

I want to sell my car. Best way to go about it quickly?

Happened once before, just needed some wd40, but of all times. Anyway....98 Civic EX Coupe, 102k miles, could use a new muffler, bumper scratches from living in the city, otherwise engine and trans are just dandy.But yeah, what do you think the easiest way to get it sold would be?
If it doesn't sell quickly on craigslist or ebay, then you are probably asking too much. You could also try cars.com or autotrader, both those sites get a lot of traffic, but then will cost you money.

Stuck bolt.So far, I've hit it with penetrating oil and tried to crank it with a regular socket, but no such luck (it's a big one- 1" rear differential fill plug that hasn't been opened since the Regan administration) I'm heading to Wal Mart right now to get a 1/2" drive breaker bar. Assuming I have to heat it, all I have right now is a small butane pencil torch. Think it might work or is mapp gas is a must?

I recently sold my 2003 chevy malibu to carmax. I got about 1700 less than blue book mint condition (my car was not mint). Tried to sell it through auto trader and got zero calls. Although with 100k plus miles even they may not want it.

Lol that people aren't instantly interested in Kurt's car. My best friend in high school had an older Civic that he tried to drive into the ground. 6 years and about 200k miles later we see the people he sold it to driving it around town. All hail Honda Civic's.

Nevermind. Got it off. Breaking bar did it. Brutal, frustrating, bloody knuckles. Note to self: Get a better metric socket set. My deepwell metrics are this fcking ancient set I bought at a garage sale, made back when "metric tools" were still a novelty in the US. I'm going to go grind 4 tables of 50nl right now until the retards have paid for a brand new, complete set of Craftsman 1/2" drive metric sockets w/ deepwell add on.

Did you heat it at all? That would have been my guess.

Usually issues like this are the starter or fuel pump... what's your VIN number?

I figured it mite be fuel pump but it starts cold no prob, only seems to be a prob if the engine has been shut down for longer than 5 minutes. It seems opposite of a fuel pump to me, but IDK.What would the VIN provide?It's a 6 liter, 2500 series.Thanks.

I'm looking into getting either a Porsche 944 or 968 Cabriolet. With your vast knowledge what would be the best year/model to get. I've heard nothing but great things about the 944 but Cabriolets are impossible to find in a 944 and if they are around they're way too expensive. Also, what kind of mileage in that type of car is too much. I have seen a couple with 150k+ miles and not sure how much car is left in there. Thanks for the thread, good stuff.

I can look up information on your specific vehicle that way. I'll look it up with the info you gave me.

I don't have vast knowledge, but I can look up repair histories and things of that nature for specific vehicles. Which year engine sizes are you looking for? I can look up every single one, but that would take awhile.

Looking preferably at 944 turbos around 86/87 and 968 not so sure. Wasn't aware they made different engine types for a 968. The newer the better.

engine V6 3.1 my wife is driving it and I'm at work. It has your standard mechanical pull lever for the lean forward and backwards. As far as I know (and I very well could be wrong on this) the motor only brings the seat forwards and backwards. It was weak when we bought the car and recently quit working all together

I know, but last time they offered 2500, so it'll probably be 2000 at best if I tried again.

It's gonna drop. We live in a reactionary society, and with gas under $2 people are buying up SUV's again like it's the late 90's. Doesn't hurt that they got so ridiculously cheap over the summer. Unfortunately, it's having the opposite effect on compacts. Which is retarded if you ask me, but I don't set the market trends. now's a great time to buy a cheap gas saver, which you can now drive over twice as far for the same price. No one knows what the market will do in the next 3-6 months...it's actually possible your car would appreciate in value (as we've seen some SUV's do) if gas goes back up...but it's not likely that appreciation would be significint.Anyway, hope you find a buyer either way.

My wife has a 2001 Mazda 626. When it is cold (less then 65F) it squeals very loud for about 5 seconds. If you give it gas or shift gears it gets louder then stops. What is happening?
