Re: PS Evo connector help

Picture of the electrical connector from the first post would help in describing how to disconnect.

Re: 06' VUE V6 Cyl #4 misfire code

Cylinder #4 is the first one (front of engine) on the front bank.

Re: the old water pump r and r trick on a 2.2 4cyl

You need to use a special tool mounted (and properly torqued) at the front of the engine to hold the chain sprocket in place. If not used then you will have issues with the chain tensioner extending...

Re: '98 DOHC Head Gasket Replacment

From poor memory the bracket looks like it could be for power steering pump. Maybe something to do with the intake.

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Rear Brake Pad Swap (Special Tool Needed) ?

Brake clean will clean the brake fluid off of the rotors.
I have never split the calipers open so I am not sure what seals them. It may be a rubber type seal or metal to metal sealing. For safety...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Rear Brake Pad Swap (Special Tool Needed) ?

To replace the brake pads on the style of caliper in your picture you do not remove the bolts. The bolts hold the caliper together and if you removed/loosened them than you have caused brake fluid to...

Re: 07 V6 Starter Replacement Troubleshooting

Starters do not have ground wires. They ground through the case of the starter.

Re: Please help - need idle pully stuff

If it was only broken off there is usually enough thread left in the cover to put the mount in place and thread the bolt in place to hold things in place.

Re: Please help - need idle pully stuff

The idler pulley mount/support is part of the timing chain cover. The condition yours appears to be in...not really there at all, means that you are looking at replacing the timing chain cover.

Re: battery vs. alternator

Pull the covers off of the ends of the battery cables as the corrosion can build under them and not really show.

Re: 2000 L 5 spd clutch issue

You may want to get a different mechanic. Self adjusting hydraulic system. A quick visual inspection would show hydraulic lines instead of mechanical linkages.

If you have ABS brakes then the noise is likely the ABS system self check.

Re: '99 SL2 scary bad knock

Determine if the knocking engine is the 99 1/2 up or the 99 1/2 down engine.

The 99's that we saw had the newer engine with the narrower head come in about half ways through the model year. So if...

Re: Brake bleeding procedure

If you think that the bleeder is blocked remove it and clean it with small drill bits. You should be able to blow air through it if it is not blocked.
