    DSM Maintenance Guide

    @FredRider Thank you for the heads-up. I attached a PDF copy of the document to the original post so we shouldn't have to worry about a dead link for at least that item in the future.

    Where are all the 1990 GSX OEM Alternators?

    It's going to be no different than a 91-94 alternator. I wouldn't worry too much about OEM on this, either. You may go through 2-3 units before finding a "good" one at a parts store but alternators aren't the most difficult things to change in these cars. If you're really concerned, have...

    Spark plug wires

    ^^This.The spark plug firing order has absolutely nothing to do with the mechanical timing of the engine. The story you've provided is nothing more than happenstance. It would be no different than concluding the engine blew up because he modified his car, shaved the heads, or had oversized...

    Spark plug wires

    It simply won't run or won't run well. It's not going to blow anything up.But now that we all know what the proper order is, there's no reason to be getting it wrong.Right?
  15. 19Eclipse90

    Spark plug wires

    Number 1 cylinder is closest to the timing belt. So, from the front of the car, looking into the engine bay, it's 4-3-2-1.
  16. 19Eclipse90

    Spark plug wires

    That's a good place to start, then. I wouldn't worry too much about anything else, save maybe a compression test and other general vehicle health checks before doing a boost leak test. Boost leaks are common and known to affect acceleration.

    Spark plug wires

    If the car were a '95 or '96 (then, assuming a '95 or '96 ECU), it'd be different, actually.'97-'99 models were similar enough to be considered "the same", but they were different than the '95-'96 models, specifically in regards to the CAS location which affects the spark plug order. See...

    Spark plug wires

    This isn't confusing at all. If the car is a '98 (assumes the ECU is matching) and the motor is a '98, you'd hook it up like....::drumrollplease::... a '98!

    2G Engine Harness noob question.

    The engine control harness is for the engine's sensors, injectors, and into the ECU, etc.. The engine compartment harness has the fans, alternator, headlights, fogs, etc., on it.As you noted, they are separate so it sounds to me he needs to specify which one he's needing.

    What year & month does engine serial # NH0001 correspond to?

    1Gs had a bolt. 2Gs had a stud and nut.
  23. 19Eclipse90

    What year & month does engine serial # NH0001 correspond to?

    Yes, any M6 x 1 x 25 bolt should do the trick. Obviously, the key is to ensure the end of the tie bar is held down so add a washer as needed to ensure this end is captured.Sure is fun, isn't it? :cool:

    What year & month does engine serial # NH0001 correspond to?

    The only special thing I can think of about the OEM gasket pieces is that they are molded to shape to fit the cover they are meant to match.Just ran a quick cost check, looks like the gaskets alone will run about $15 without taxes or shipping, assuming they're still available. :thumb:
  25. 19Eclipse90

    What year & month does engine serial # NH0001 correspond to?

    Forget any notion for a minute about engine serial numbers. There's two variations of rubbery gaskets for the timing belt cover for 1Gs with the 2.0L engine because there are two variations of timing belt covers for 1Gs with the 2.0L engine. All DSM 6-bolt lower timing belt covers are the...

    What year & month does engine serial # NH0001 correspond to?

    You mean my post in What block is this?;)Pretty sure the OP here is simply trying to understand the correlation of the engine serial number to a production time frame. After all, the NH0001 serial code had to happen at some relatively specific time. The fact we've been able to thus far...

    What year & month does engine serial # NH0001 correspond to?

    April 1992 into May 1992 was the changeover, see: 6 bolt or 7 bolt. Just know that there are likely to be some outliers to this timeframe. The nature of manufacturing is you use what's available to put product out. Look at how (in)consistently EPROM ECUs came in these cars, and really for no...

    2G 2g with 1g 4g63 6 bolt swap

    Again, it has to do with what ECU you are using. Since the 1998-1999 black box ECU is normally mated with a CAS on the passenger side of the head, using a 1G CAS instead is not going to affect anything else.If the harness is a '96, you're going to want to choose the '95-'96 option on OHM's...

    Eco modding ideas?

    Driver mod is a big one for improving fuel economy. See: How To Save GasAlso, a vehicle that is caught up on all maintenance, not just engine and transmission maintenance, but also free of check engine lights or DTCs will be a better candidate for improved fuel economy.
