Re: Stripped Out Rear Strut Spindle Bolt

This is the only video I believe anyone has done on swapping out the rear strut. The car was very much a northern car with the battle he had removing that bolt you have stripped.

Re: Steel/zinc bolts and nuts OK for exhaust?

Marine Suppliers/Stores are a great source for SS nut, bolts, etc. All boats require SS fasteners to last. When I had my boat I bought all my SS stuff from West marine. They were way cheaper than...

Re: Possible ground issue

On the middle image there are the 2 rotary switches that when knobs are attached change temp on the left and fan speed on the right. My suggestion would be to spray electronics fluid down into those...

Re: Possible ground issue

Instead of disassembling, why not squirt the electronics cleaner where the knob is and let it flow into the insides, then wiggle the rotary control around. It's electronics cleaner so will not do any...

Re: Possible ground issue

This may be a dumb question but with the variable temperature switch could it just be acting up from nothing more than a build up of dust on the contacts?

I have two examples of dust; one was the...

Re: Idle surge when shift, until normal running temp

I did say 'to my knowledge", meaning I wasn't certain. My knowledge is with the V6. I'll leave the 4 bangers to their own devices from now on as I get myself in to trouble. LOL

Re: Idle surge when shift, until normal running temp

"Checked throttle cables"?

To my knowledge all L series are drive by wire throttles. They don't have cables.

Re: Tire Pressure correct PSI

I don't think anyone is arguing over tire pressure now. I think Russet has been given all he needs. Now we simply have gone off topic.

Personally I have no objections to anyone who does whatever...

Re: Tire Pressure correct PSI

Not a doomsday prepper. The Polk County area is a very 'red neck' county in Central Florida so lifted big tired pick up trucks are considered daily drivers to some here. We also have no inspections...

Re: Tire Pressure correct PSI

Yes. low profile tires always equals hard ride. I know that some vehicles do look good with bigger rim sizes as they 'fill' the wheel arch better, but some just look plain stupid.

Re: Tire Pressure correct PSI

This is what you get when you go off OEM. I can only suggest contacting the people who supplied and fitted the tires they sold you. It should not be a guessing game, certainly not with tires.

Re: Tire Pressure correct PSI

Decal for tire pressures is on the rear passenger door behind drivers door. It's not complicated.

Re: Buzzing noise in throttle body

I watched your video and all I could hear was the loud tapping. So I guess that is the noise you are trying to convey to us. It is very difficult to make any accurate diagnosis when you are not...

Re: Oil change indicator

I get what these articles say (some were written 7 years ago) BUT key to "oil life" is the oil itself. I doubt any of these articles takes that into account.

Re: 2004 Saturn L300 will not fire

Thanks for clarifying the state of the gas in the tank.

Whilst I am no expert, it's basically a process of elimination. To run the engine you need 3 things; gas, air and spark. You said that it...
