Re: 2005 Relay 3 : DVD Disk Format Errot

Could always hit up a junk yard or ebay... the same system was used in the Chevy, Pontiac, Buick and Saturn versions of this van. :cd:

Re: Considering buying 2005 Relay

Oh... I thought it was the L series with the 3.0 that was the worst Saturn ever, or the 2.2 Ecotec timing chains in the L or Ions, weren't those the worst ever? Or was it the diff pin in the S...

Re: Considering buying 2005 Relay

I actually own an '06 Relay-3...

So far the actual problems are the front upper strut mounts, the driver side sliding door needs to be adjusted, and the rear shocks needed to be replaced... shrug....

Re: Popping Noise

Is your Relay actually AWD(real axle going into the rear wheel)?

Does it have the pneumatic ride leveling system(rubber boots around the rear shocks where they telescope)?

Re: ******* teenager walked on top of my car and dented roof and hood

My guess is the headliner sags because he pushed on it to pop up the roof panel... once that old foam gets crushed, it turns to dust, the glue can no longer hold it up.

Re: 2.2 Ecotec Power steps

Re: L 300 Performance. Inspired by the LW youtube vid

The L81, while being the same basic motor, is hardly worthy of being called an X30XE... :snide:

Re: Top Problems In LW300?

The point being made here is that the engine in the L series is not the same as the Catera engine; its not RWD, has a completely different induction system and is down 20HP :p The only problems on...

Re: Youtube Video on a 2000 Saturn LW2

I have to agree that the L81 is one sexy V6... :drool: I can't think of another engine that GM made that they didn't just give up and cover it with plastic. :hmpf:

Great video!

Re: HELP HELP L300 V6 broken engine part/pics included

That is a vacuum line with a check valve that you broke. It looks like you snapped the hose barb off and you will need to get a new check valve, you will also have to get the barb out of the vacuum...

Re: X30XE Swap into 2003 L300?

Re: my 2002 l200 is blowing white/grey smoke out of the tailpipe

Re: Sale of SAAB and why it's good news for Saturn L owners

Hence the paint/body shops I mentioned above... ;) The nice thing about Enduraflex body panels is that if they aren't shattered they can usually be repainted and used again.
