  1. Quick Silver or Larini is a good choice for exhaust with straight pipes if you want your car to growl. However, looking at the pics it looks like something has already been done to your exhaust because the tips are different. Good to know the SV gives more satisfaction than the new cars. No need for me to trade then!
  2. Glad you did that, I was beginning to wonder if the Diablo section even worked anymore! Are they all parked?
  3. Here's some: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1998-Lamborghini-Diablo-SV-/264108133121?hash=item3d7e124b01%3Ag%3A4qoAAOSwTSlcJvwa&vxp=mtr&nma=true&si=557GP5kFis9jumKH3Ef7jzTJS0E%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 https://www.ebay.com/itm/1998-Lamborghini-Diablo-SV-/283297532976?hash=item41f5d94c30%3Ag%3AaOUAAOSwcH5cDfPj&vxp=mtr&nma=true&si=557GP5kFis9jumKH3Ef7jzTJS0E%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  4. How to search E-Bay for past auctions? There was, I think a blue one recently. It had a 6.0 front end. Around the $200K mark. Might have been damaged (modified), then a few months ago there was a nice black one, $170K BUY it now price.
  5. Who knows. Prices are all over the place. Some SV's asking near $400K, some on E-Bay for under $200k with nothing apparently wrong. It's desire meeting reality. To me the Turbo package wouldn't add one cent of value since it didn't come from the factory, in fact it might be worth less than a standard model. Exotics are a risky endeavor in the first place, add that's it's 20 years old and been modified, not attractive IMO. One thing for sure, this one will go for a lot less with that tacky scripting on it.

    Thick green liquid leaking

    Looks like coolant to me. Not thick looking, more like water, and there's no other green liquid in the car. Need to make sure about the color.
  7. The fans aren't suppose to run with the engine off, no matter how hot. As to the original question, I have no idea.

    DIABLO VIDS

    Well now I don't need to go driving today. Next best thing.

    Slow Electric Windows

    Wouldn't make sense to be the runners. If the felt was worn, that's less material to drag on, unless it was cocked in there, but unlikely both sides. How bout just some silicon spray?

    inspecting the car

    1. Fuel gauge, good luck, both of my cars so it, sometimes it drops to zero, and then slowly builds it's way back to the correct reading. There's not an easy fix. Word is, it's NOT the sender. 2. Changing the thermostat is no different than changing on other cars, it's been a while, but basically remove the housing and lift the old one out, new one in. Also suspect your tank cap seal, both fans working? Using a laser temp gun, shoot the tank or therm housing, and compare against your gauge to see if it really is as hot as it reads. 4. Don't be in a hurry to replace bushings etc. I've done two 45 year old Pantera's, and while the bushings looked cracked around the rims, the inside was still supple. Suspension work is a pain for DIYer's.

    Stalling

    Thanks Jeff, I understand and will look at those two things.

    Stalling

    I was thinking fuel pressure too which I don't think the computer could sense, and thus no CEL. Jeff, the idle speed is 900 RPM when warmed up. It does not idle up to the typical 1500 RPM or so when cold, You have to keep giving it gas which would point to the Carter motor? Thanks for the replys.
  13. The 98 SV will start, but then die repeatedly. When coming to a stop, the RPM's seem to drop suddenly, and the engine dies. It will always start right back up, but then want to stall again unless you get moving. After warm up the condition seems to improve with less stalling, but is still intermittently present. Have checked for vacuum leaks, and considering items like Carter motor, and throttle position sensor it seems there would be an associated CEL, but there are none, and the engine runs fine once underway. What else to check?
