finished rack now timing belt

Hi everyone I drove the 94 ls to Santa Barbara after the rack and pinion job yesterday. The independent shop there will be doing the timing belt water pump belt tensioners. The car has had a misfire issue that seems to go away at higher rpms and they are going to look into that as well. Question do any of you have a front drivers side turn signal lamp housing and the aluminum trim under the assembly. The car was hit in a parking lot before I bought it and that is the only damage on it. That and the driver seat needs a new cover.There is no rust anywhere and I'm looking forward to driving it without worrying about the timing belt. Cheers..

As for the misfire, my LS had a misfire occasionally, and it turned out to be dirty multiwire connectors at the ignition modules down near/under the cruise control actuator can to the right of the air filter box.

I cleaned them thoroughly with spray electronics cleaner and then applied some dielectric grease to protect them from the dirt and water they can be subject to in that location. Cured the problem.

Which plugs are you using? I found that the NGK Iridiums are the best for the LS. No fouling at all.

Should be able to find a good used seat for the LS, at the rate these cars are parted out due to people not willing to repair the damage due to a skipped timing belt. Probably cost less than having a seat recovered, including shipping.

Be aware that 164s have a problem with the short immersed fuel hose attached to the fuel pump inside the tank. That hose craps out maybe around 100k+ miles or so. Had it happen to my 91S at about 110k miles, and am going to change in my LS, it now at 110k miles.

I have the L/H 9947656 parking light for 94/95 164 and the L/H 112749567 "chrome" trim piece that runs from parking light to wheel well.

I do not have the L/H 60567661 "fishplate" small trim piece that connects/covers the joint where the 112749567 L/H trim piece meets the long flat 60569671 trim piece on top of bumper.
