  1. I always thought they were from the donor car.
  2. Have you tried an Exorcist?๐Ÿ˜
  3. If the driver side is not up at all try pounding on the corner of the hood by the driver side with a closed fist going down - it may pop open.
  4. I always thought it would be cool if an Avanti trailer was made available (rear part of car made into a small trailer). What gave me this thought was many years ago seeing a Plymouth Prowler(?) passing me on the freeway when all of a sudden another Prowler was right on his tail!๐Ÿ˜ต A Prowler trailer.
  5. Don't think this has any connection with Chrysler. I got a new heater core for my '88 from one of our great suppliers years ago - he bought all the factory excess from Youngstown. Can't recall his name but he was from Wixom, MI. He just might have the evap for you!

    Door locked

    I've been trying to remember - I think my door wouldn't open from the inside so 'playing' with the latch mechanism (lifting with flat head screwdriver) while pulling on interior door handle and pushing out lightly. In the end I guess a small spring on the latch mechanism was worn out.

    Door locked

    If I'm understanding correctly - you cannot manually unlock either door from the outside because of no key. Also, the passenger door has lock mechanism issues. I would suggest removing the interior door panel on the passenger side to see what is going on (including rusted parts). Then you could also have the locksmith make a new key using the passenger side lock. If you can't even open the passenger door there should be a small opening at the edge of the door on the inside where you can use a screwdriver to manipulate the locking/latching device (play with it).
  8. You should be able to 'pry' any of the switches out easily to verify usage.
  9. What about the 5 mph bumper collision impact (shock absorber system)?
  10. Reminds me of the time many years ago when I had to get my mandatory emissions check from Wisconsin and the lady inspector said I failed do to a lack of a charcoal canister. I had to point it out to her (hidden nicely)!๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Avanti Change!

  12. Years ago I had new/different mufflers put on the '88 Coupe (don't exactly remember if I told them it was a Monte Carlo - but I probably did) and they didn't say anything special about any problems with the install which included the tail pipes. If you're talking about in front of the mufflers then I don't know for sure.
  13. Speaking of "Mirrors", one of the very first changes I made to my '88 Coupe was to replace the huge Monte Carlo interior mirror (took up half the view out of the small windshield) with a Smaller size!
  14. Reminds me of the Chrysler 'Fin' cars ('57 +).
  15. Do you have a specific issue with the ignition key cylinder or ignition switch? If so, we may be able offer solutions from our experience.
  16. Probably GM - the Keys are GM.
  17. Is it at all possible this is from the original Monte Carlo seal used by 87-88 Avanti Coupes that has been strategically 'cut'?
  18. Yeah, I had that done twice. The second time was harder - apparently what with aluminum radiators not many places around to have this re-coring done. My mechanic sent my radiator out-of-state!
  19. I think what I did was to bring the hose into the auto parts store and they found a replacement (from a large stock) that very closely matched - it Worked!
