Re: Changing the alternator

Another local shop quoted me $400 with a lifetime warranty on the parts and labor. This includes changing the alt belt as well. Not sure if it's worth doing myself or not. Parts would probably run me...

How hard is it to change the alternator on a 2008 Saturn Aura Xe (2.4)?

Re: Replace Battery Cable

I wasn't sure I could do that and have it work fine. Which connector do you recommend?

Replace Battery Cable

I recently had a new battery installed in my 2008 Aura XE (2.4) and the place told me that my negative battery cable is bad (loose). I guess it's not connecting good where it connects to the post. My...

Re: passenger side nozzle not working, driver side weak

So is it okay to use non oem replacement nozzles? From looking at various websites (autozone, etc) it looks like the generic replacement ones are more straight and don't have an elbow type design...

Re: Washer nozzle guts replacement

After taking a closer look it is indeed the nozzle that broke (actually both of them). Are you sure they were only $10 each? I'll have to call my dealer tomorrow but from looking online they run...

Re: Washer nozzle guts replacement

I've looked at a couple 'universal' kits and it looks the connector won't work unfortunately. I'm not 100% sure on that yet until I take a closer look.

Re: Washer nozzle guts replacement

Just spoke to another dealer and he did say I would have to buy the entire hose assembly that goes under the hood. I guess it's all one piece so it would contain the plastic piece that broke. The...

Re: Service ESC/Traction control light

Yeah my fear is I'm going to take it in on Monday and they won't be able to reproduce the problem and therefore they won't be able to do anything.

All they told me was there was a misfire in...

Re: Changing Plugs on the 2.4

Thanks for the info. I thought for sure I read something about the torque rating being 10 ft-lbs but I must be mistaken.

I should only use the silicone on the coil boots correct? I don't need to...

Changing Plugs on the 2.4

Re: 2008 XE Plugs Question

Is it necessary to use anti-seize? Also do I need a special wrench to get the right amount of torque? I've never changed plugs before so I don't want to screw it up.

Thanks,

Re: Coolant change + 100K mile service
