Re: 2005 Vue Leaking Hyrdolic Fluid - Best Option?

Someone will probably correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure the Vue has essentially the same manual trans as the Ion.

The reason you are getting such a high quote is because the slave...

Re: Did I get ripped off

A good quality hub for the Vue with ABS is not cheap. I believe I paid just over $200 for the hub. I spent a good two hours trying to get the hub out of the stupid spindle. They just about weld...

Re: Oil Leak

Just looked up the part and damn that's an expensive PCV valve. I've never had one cost more a few dollars.



Switching to a high mileage synthetic is interesting. I wonder why that would stop...

Re: Saturn Ion transmission issue?

The Aisin transmission has a dipstick with a weird design. There is a bolt holding down the dipstick. If you look in the engine bay on the transmission closer towards the radiator at the bottom. It...

Re: Advice on repair

All the possibilities for fixing a problem of low compression are going to be incredibly labor intensive. With 185k I wouldn't bother. I personally at 185k would say the car had a decent run and junk...

Re: 216k miles and now need shocks replaced! Any suggestions

Wow those are cheap right now. Amazon is saying the front ready mounts will not fit a base 2004 Vue but it must be wrong.

Re: trans problems reverse in all gears 04 ion l3

Unfortunately the solution is to swap the trans with the AF23 or junk it and get a new car. The failure of the CVT transmissions used in the Ion/Vue are very well documented.

I'm guessing the top number is the misfire count? So it would be:

#4: 15

Is this tool able to access the historical data? It would be nice to see if there is a large...

Saturn ion manual - awkward 3rd and 4th shifts

Not really sure where to start with this one.

Re: Completed valve adjustment on my 3.5

Thanks, I understand :)

Your ranges appear to be correct with the stickers that Honda prints on the J series cars for valve adjustment:

-Intake 0.22 +- 0.02
-Exhaust 0.30 +- 0.02

Hopefully...
