In my 87 Diplomat, at ignition a high pitched ringing starts and does not go away, like a set belt alarm. It's gotten worse over the years and is really loud now. Pressing on the gas can make it quieter, and sometimes will make it go away momentarily only to come back when letting up on the gas pedal.


How do I fix this? Does pressing the gas pedal pull a vacuum (ie do I look for a vacuum actuated switch or a rotten line)? Or is it something else?

Nice car, that car must float down the road,
 those seats look comfortable, my dad had one of those, I used to have one wished I'd kept it, things like that. 



Those comments indicate that people still like smooth rides and comfy seats despite being brainwashed into thinking that everything must have a firm ride and cockpit-style seating.  My theory is that the Ford Taurus (the car that saved Ford) was the beginning of the end of our beloved American cars like the M-bodies.  We started to see everything in terms of making our cars more like something they were never meant to be.  People started gravitating to SUVs and pickup trucks.  Automotive journalists added to it by giving poor reviews to the remaining big American cars, putting the stigma of “older person’s car” on them.Nowadays we thankfully still have the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger but many think of them primarily as muscle cars, rather than comfortable cars for the masses.

Lately my 85 Diplomat Salon is giving me a no start condition. I checked for spark and there was none. The mechanic replaced cap and rotor and "Rosie" was okay for a while. Went out one morning and she didn't start. Just cranked. I got out, removed the distributor cap and rotor, jimmied it a bit and put it back on. It started and was good for about a week. Let it sit for a few days, attempted to start it and, no spark again. It's a 318 2V civilian model with electronic spark control. Is there anything obvious I should be looking for? Thanks for any assistance.

Wanted to throw this question out to you guys: What do people say about your car when they first see it nowadays (coworkers, neighbors, strangers, oil change techs, etc.)?
I missed my chance to own an M-body myself but I love them and research them online every chance I get.  They are becoming scarce, that is for sure.  I did take a mid-80s Gran Fury on a short test drive once, at least I got that.

thanks! she's a good 20-footer for sure.  I've gotta fix the flasher unit, and the inner LF turn signal bulb before it'll pass inspection.




The hugeist downside is I have to wait until January to properly transfer the title and register it due to the local DMV being appointment-only, even though there's less than 10,000 people in the surrounding 3 counties.

With cruise and intermittent wipers, it's part number 4373257, shared with some, but not all, FWD cars of the timeframe.
