Most people get it with magnets if strong enough. Glad it worked.

>You have saved me hundreds, if not thousands of dollars by diagnosing problems and showing solutions
Thank you for saying that. It really made my day to know that I helped. There were many others on forums who answered my questions and who posted things they had learned, and they helped me with my cars several times. I'm just passing it on.
Amazing. That's the mileage on my 98 leSabre. I keep hoping to make it to 200,000 mi on one of my cars. That may be the one if I don't trade it first.

All these years and I've never heard the magnet trick. Very cool.

I stepped out for a while; even put my nose in another forum. So, I missed the word that you are now a BIG SHOT here at Edmunds. I donít even want to think what your dues must be now.
Congrats for sticking around.
Your poster buddy,

My dues are double what you are paying. Enjoy reading yours posts just like those of many other posters. Thanks for showing up in the Mechanic's forum. Roadburner beat me to the invite.

Jul 14, 2013 (5:57 am)
hey Imidazol, thought I'd share a positive Buick story, to help offset, somewhat, the fact that my Park Ave hasn't exactly given me the warm fuzzies of late. Last week I went with a friend to look at houses, and his real estate agent had a 1999 LeSabre. We started talking cars, and he said that it had about 160,000 miles on it, and was running great!

Had a sleepless night last night. Was playing with a new operating system until late and just figured it was the excitement (yeah, I'm easily amused).
Then I realized I had both monitors blaring and hadn't installed f.lux. After our "chat" the other day about waking up in the middle of the night I thought you might find the link interesting, even if you don't watch TV or play on a computer before bedtime. The take-away from the research page is "night-time exposure to blue light keeps people up late."

Yes, I fiind that is very interesting. It's scientifically logical, as the Harvard Medical School link shows.
I had to laugh about your sleepless night because last night I woke at 3 am and had trouble getting back to sleep. ATN time on WLW700.
In past, I had gotten some bright white compact fluoresent bulb and used to read the books and mags. I had decided I felt tired and down in the dark days of January and February and using the sunlight substitute was a help in relieving SAD (seasonal affective disorder). I wonder if there's a correlation to sensitivity to the SAD and blue light exposure sensitivity at the wrong time giving sleep disturbance.
