Re: 3 Disc brake warnings

Petroleum based grease is never used on brake parts for that reason and they can run at high temperatures and contaminate pads and shoes. Ceramic based lubes are best for high temperatures. I prefer...

Re: Need technical assistance identifying a problem

Go to each tire and and grab at 9 and 3 o'clock. Shake in and out, looking and feeling for play in the joint. If none, I'd leave it alone. Check again the next time you rotate tires or change the...

Re: Looking at buying a 2004-2005 V6 Vue, what should I look for...?

You do have to trim the bumper cover but pretty minor.

I don't know the Canadian RL market but $2500 CAD seems pretty cheap. I'd be really...

Re: 2005 vue 3.5 coolant in oil

Coolant leaking into the cylinder after shutdown causing misfire on startup by quenching spark until it's expelled.



Your flush washed out the sealer allowing the head gasket to leak again....

Re: Another alignment needed after Frnt strut install??

Struts are made for different models. Some take the spacer, some don't. Pretty sure I didn't use them.

Re: where to pick up pos, ground, and reverse lights under dash

Why not just run a wire to the tail lights? You're going to have to run a wire to the back for the camera anyway.

Re: Another alignment needed after Frnt strut install??

Find that hard to believe but you probably get what you pay for. I can do a better alignment with a tape measure than any alignment shop. Replaced the struts, control arms and tie rod ends on my...

Re: buy/sell vues

I was thinking valve adjustment on a 3.5. If you're OK doing all that work, great, but having flipped 3 Redlines that at least ran, I know that once you get it running and driving, there will be...

Re: buy/sell vues

No but I've done valve adjustments and there is barely enough room to get the back valve cover off. Couldn't imagine getting the entire head off with the engine in. Replacing head gaskets on a car to...

Re: buy/sell vues

You can find out the same as I can. I'd rather have a good 270K 3.5 RL than a base 3.0 with a bad head gasket.

Re: Front Suspension Repair Help Needed (Rip-off?)

76K mile Vue shouldn't need all that work. I just replaced those parts on my 192K Redline chasing a thunk which turned out to be sway bar bushings. Didn't mind doing it because it had the original...

You're assuming way too much. What if the bottom end is trash? What if the transmission is messed up? What if the brakes, suspension, steering is bad? Those are $200 parts cars in the shape they are...

Re: Alignment with lowering springs

RL is already lowered from the factory. Go much lower and the tires will rub. The Megan site just lists lowering springs for the Vue with no mention of the Redline. I assume they lower a regular Vue...

Re: Buying Advice-2002 GM VUE vs. 2004 Honda VUE Redline

I would avoid the 3.0 unless it's real cheap, like under $1500. The 3.5 is just a much better engine overall. $3500 seems a bit cheap for a Redline with such low mileage. If you have to spend another...

Any write-up on radiator replacement for a Redline?

Was under my 2005 RL replacing the a/c compressor control valve when I noticed coolant dripping from the radiator at the right side tank. It was pretty high up so couldn't see the actual spot it was...
