Turns out the problem isn't the theft computer, it's the starter relay that's under the pass. side interior kick panel. It works fine when the car interior is cool, say under ~80-85 F. Above that...

Update:

The last time she got stranded she had NOT locked the car--it was just a gas up stop. So, realizing the car had never acted this way before I changed the starter, plus all the alarm stuff...

I cut the hood switch connector off and twisted the wires together. We'll see how that works. I can't tell by looking at the wiring diagrams if they're supposed to be twisted or separated in order...

I used a Fel-Pro and had the head only machined flat. It was only out a few thousanths. Just get the bolts up to ~70 ft.lb. with the new gasket and you should be OK. I sprayed aluminum paint...

No, but I think you have to pull the cams. They're easy, and you should install a new cam drive belt then too. Do a 'net search on how you have to line up the marks on the cam pulleys--it's no big...

No, they are 10 mm socket head "capscrews"--there are 14 of them. You can buy a 1/2" drive metric socket with a male 10mm section, or just buy a 1/2" 6 point metric socket in 10 mm and a 10 mm Allen...

You already have the valve covers off, so get a GOOD torque wrench and check the head bolt torque. IIRC, stock bolts should be good for ~72 ft. lb., far better than the original 58. Take a good...
