[MODERATOR NOTE: IT IS PROBABLY POSSIBLE TO DO SOME DAMAGE TO YOUR CAR OR NEIGHBORHOOD BY CONDUCTING THIS TEST IMPROPERLY, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IT BEFORE.  I'M ALLOWING THE POST FOR ITS POTENTIAL INTELLECTUAL VALUE. -Mike S.]


To the List

I need help in developing a specifaction for the stall speed of the 
torque converter. It does not require any mechanical ability just a 
good running car with an automatic transmission.
DO NOT DO THIS TEST IF YOU ARE NOT COMPLETLY COMFORTABLE WITH THIS 
PROCEDURE!

1) warm up car with a drive of at least 5 miles
2) park car where there is nothing in front and away from any people
3) set parking brake and hold down brake pedal 
4) with engine idling shift into "D"
5) smoothly push accelerater pedal all the way to floor
6) when engine speed is stable note reading on tachometer
7) release accelerater pedal smoothly ( don't hold to floor for more 
than 20 seconds)
8) move shift to park and hold the engin rpm's at 1000 for 30 seconds 
at least to cool motor.
9) do not repeat again for at least 5 min 
10) do this test at least twice to confirm results. 
This is also a good test for the engine as it gives a rough
indication 
 if it is capable of full power output.
If you will do this and then either post the results or e-mail me I 
will keep track and post a spec for the list.

Subject: Door lock diagram

HI,
My automatic door locks have never worked, partly because they were 
never plugged in (since I bought the car).  Last night I went to test 
it to see if the solinoids were fried for not.  I connected the big 
groups of wires to the appropriate place, but then there is one more 
wire coming out of the door rely (is it a relay?)  Could someone tell 
me where to plug this in?  I saw a place where I think it would go, 
but when I plugged it in all I got was a clicking when I locked the 
doors, but they both didn't lock.  Anyone have any ideas?  If I can 
get this to work and if I don't have to get new solinoids then I want 
to get a lock zilla.
Thanks
