Re: 76 Toronado Low Coolant Light

I'll bet the intermittent light is due to the wire jiggling around and making contact with something. Maybe it's left dangling or maybe rolled up and tucked somewhere.

Re: 76 Toronado Low Coolant Light

In that case I'd suspect that the radiator has been replaced and that the person doing the work either didn't know about the sensor or chose not to install it, or the replacement radiator did not have a port for the sensor. Look for a plug threaded into the tank as you would find with tranny cooling...

Re: 76 Toronado Low Coolant Light

Interesting. That's a new one for me. I think Willys has the right idea about removing it and cleaning it.

Re: 76 Toronado Low Coolant Light

Is the light for coolant level or coolant temperature? I've never seen a coolant level warning on a car that old. Not saying it doesn't exist but make sure the warning light isn't a high temperature warning light.

Re: Recommendations: S Florida Transmission re-builders?

The toro transmission is virtually identical to the GM Turbo 400. It's just cut in half and driven with a chain. It's a pretty common transmsion so shouldn't be too difficult for someone who's rebuilt a TH400 in the past.

What's your transmission doing? Why do you think it needs to be rebuilt?

Re: MY NEW (old) OLDS!!

I've had my 1956 Cadillac Hydramatic rebuilt as well as my Ford C4. I agree that you don't want to take it to just anybody and just because they have good reviews doesn't mean they're capable of doing a proper job on a 50 year old transmission that's been out of production since the 1980s. Having sa...

The bumpers were originally chrome, right?

Re: MY NEW (old) OLDS!!

Yellow is my favorite color. I had a yellow '68 Camaro that I traded for a yellow '72 Monte Carlo. I sold the Monte Carlo to buy the Cadillac.

Re: NEED 76' TRUNK EMBLEM BADGE

Here are a few sources to check. http://www.Fusick.com https://www.oldsobsolete.com/ http://www.car-parts.com I find that it's easier to be less specific on this site regarding the particular part. Find out what junkyards have the particular year and model car you need and call them in person to ask...

Re: MY NEW (old) OLDS!!

That's cool. I really like that body style of Toro. They took a lot of styling cues from the first gen, FWD Eldorado. How many miles are on it?
