New Car

The Mrs. never got around to learning stick so we needed a family car that'd be good her and the baby. I've been looking around and stumbled on this beauty for $2,500 yesterday. 176,000miles Great car, all kinds of fancy stuff and it's only a GX. Not quite an alero but still, beautiful day for a photo shoot!
Who are the other Intrigue owners on here? What forum do you recommend for them? This is a great old car, I love the handling and it has plenty of power. courtesy lighting everywhere, couldn't be happy. Needs a bit of things here and there, but nothing major. This title says it was sold new in 04 with 30,000 miles. Demo car maybe? Looks like they installed the spoiler early in it's life, did a good job, LED lit! Needs wheel hubs, trans mount, coolant tank, and fresh fluids. Other than that, good to go. We've already driven it a few hundred miles. Super happy with the Olds again!

Fuel gauge sits at full and occasionally goes down to show the actual level. Is this probably the float/tank side or a needle/gauge cluster problem?

About the fuel gauge, it may be actually easier to check the circuit instead of the actual sending unit.
Scrounge the ARRC data for the resistance values and compare that with what the gauge shows you.
This way u probably only need to check into some wires, and don't have to take anything apart.

If you find, that the sender is not showing what the tank really has in it, but the gauge is showing what the sender sees, than you got your culprit.

Olds forum has been a great help with finding the common problems and what not. It however, is even more dead then aleromod. Still loving the Intrigue.
Alero just hit 230,117 miles on the way home tonight, still running like a champ... for the most part.

Sorry for posting on this kinda late, but I haven't been on the site in a while. Congrats on the newish ride lol. I used to have a 99 Intrigue GX myself. Is the spoiler stock? Cause mine had one as well with a LED 3rd brake light. As for forums, I was on W-body.com back when I had mine. They were usually pretty helpful when needed.

^ What he said on checking the oil. The 3.5L is notorious for it.
