Did an impromtu run in my 98 Regal GS tonight, car is stock except for a Fenderwell Intake and the tranny can kiss my ass.
Before any questions are asked about the Check Engine Lights please read:
The two left lights and the bottom yellow light on the right are for a bad wheel speed sensor, which pretty much means traction control doesn't work. The big red light is for the brakes, I've checked them over, nothing appears to be wrong and it brakes just fine. The Low Coolant light is either a bubble in the system or a dirty/bad sensor, both common problems in the car. The top yellow light is the Performance Shift light for the transmission.
Buick - ABS Update: ABS VI (1996)
This video, taken from Buick's Know-how Series (KH-192), discusses problem-solving techniques for the Delphi Chassis Delco ABS VI System implemented first on the 1992 Skylark/Regal and later on the 1994 Century and other models. Topics covered include the Hydraulic Modulator, EBCM, ABS Diagnostics, and Wheel Speed Sensor concerns.

This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences with them.
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny. No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track. Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower (stock)
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the 2011 v6
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8'' pulley (14psi) and ethanol.
374whp with same mods as vs the blown GT
As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!
E46 Low Coolant Level Indicator Problem
Low Coolant Level Indicator Problem
What I did:
Checked and open coolant reservoir while the engine is cold (left it overnight before opening and toping-up) But the level seems fine, only added a couple of ml. of coolant just to make sure.
Checked for tell-tale-signs of coolant in engine bay for leaks but found none.
Temperature Indicator is at normal even at high and low speeds.
Brought it to service and have the radiator checked for leaks, they performed high pressure test, checked for hoses and everything seems fine and passed inspection.
I'm still having this light indicator problem especially at high speed ±80 km/h
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Vendor information in annotations. I try to support as many 3800 Vendors as possible. We have a small aftermarket and without them most of us wouldn't be able to mod and I like to spread my money around to help the economy.
