Re: Will Saturns be classic cars?

Try and find a Chevette or Yugo under $1000 or even under $2k if nice. 20 years ago they were $100 cars.

Are you using the cheapest made in China bearings or OEM GM?

Re: Dragging Passenger Caliper?

You could drive it again until the caliper starts sticking. Then crack open the bleeder screw and see if that frees it up. If so, it's probably the hose.

Re: Another quality new four seasons compressor :(

The Portuguese make good stuff. I'd say it's on par with Germany and most other EU countries.

Re: Another quality new four seasons compressor :(

The OEM AC Delco should be made in North America.

Re: Serpetine replacement on 08 3.5

No idea what K6 1093 is but if you ordered a belt for a 3.5L engine, it won't fit since 08 has the GM 3.6L engine.

Re: Another quality new four seasons compressor :(

AC Delco. Sure they are about twice the price of a Chinese compressor but what is your time worth to do this again?

Re: Entire vehicle (un)lock intermittent 2004 Vue

Hit the button 3 or 4 times in a row. If that works they probably need lube somewhere.

Re: p0420 AND p0430 - 2007 Saturn Vue 3.5L V6 AWD

Around here cars before 1996 without OBD2 get the treadmill test simulating a short drive. Cars 25 years old are exempt so that should be eliminated soon.

Re: p0420 AND p0430 - 2007 Saturn Vue 3.5L V6 AWD

More or less the same. Spark plug fouler is more of a ghetto repair since you have to drill them out and sometime stack them together. The spacers are plug and play for a few bucks more.

I may be...

Re: Slightly Different Headliner Question

I've pulled out headliners from cars and taken them to an upholstery to recover for around $120. If I just drop off the car they want $400-$500 since most of it is labor to R&R. If you have the...

Re: 2005 Saturn Vue 2.2L Burning Oil - Piston rings vs engine replacement?

Is it smoking badly too? If so, I'd guess broken not just worn rings. You already know how to remove the head. No brainer to replace the rings with the engine in the car than hassle will pulling the...

Re: 2004 Vue questions

If I was looking for a 15 year old car and lived in the rust belt, I'd shop Craigslist and Ebay ads from the southern states.

New crank but no start problem on a 2006 3.5L.

Just happened this morning for the first after having this 95,000 mile Vue a few months now. It cranked but wouldn't start and none of the lights in the instrument cluster come on.

I tried a few...

Re: 03 VGA engine any good?

Unless you get it for next to nothing and the body and interior are mint, not worth the hassle. 2004-07 models with the much better 3.5L are pretty cheap already.

How hard to change 3.5L AWD torque converter?

1) How high do you have to raise the car on jackstands?

3) Do you have to pull the transmission all the way out from under the car or can...
