We bought a 92 9000 Turbo 2.3l today. It is red. It has a few minor dings but otherwise is a nice car. A few problems: ACC blows hot unless you go to manual (temp to "LO"). However I read the manual and recalibrated the system and that seemed to help. There is one fault and the seller claims it is a temp sensor in the front bottom of the car which tells the ACC the temp of outside air. Coming home, I used the cruise control on and off as practicable. Last leg of home trip is a steep hill on I-70, starting around 5,500 feet and ending around 7,000 or so. With cruise control on, doing about 70, engine stops. I signal and pull off on shoulder (wife following in 93 900T ragtop). I switch off ignition and try to start. It starts. We start going again. Cruise control again. Go maybe a mile (I am in left lane doing 70) and engine quits again. I turn off while moving (but slow down due to steep hill) and restart. It starts, I take off again, this time leave cruise control off. No problems and in about 5 miles I am home. Any suggestions on these problems or others concerning a 92 9000 w/190k miles welcome!
