Re: Cruise Control

The cruise switch sometimes needs to be adjusted. It has a plunger that the pedal arm rest on when in the released (brakes off) position. This is done by pressing down on the pedal, then pulling out...

Re: Evap system purgatory

Given that you haven't posted the code(s), I suspect that you have the most common problem with this system: corrosion of the steel vent tubes from the fuel tank to the evap purge valve by the fuel...

Re: 2002 L200 custom shifter help

Unfortunately, the shift knob appears to be permanently attached to the lever. If you don't like the appearance of the standard knob maybe you could make a small cover of leather or fur or ???.

Re: Engine change 2000 LW1

Re- the crankshaft bolt, just re-use it. It is very long and can stretch a bit more when tightened the extra XX degrees. That's what I did. On the torque converter, that would be more difficult. I...

Re: door panel

You have not stated whether it is the inner or outer door panel you want to remove. There are posts above for both. It is customary to refer to the inner or interior door panel as the "door card"....

Re: Engine change 2000 LW1

My "new" engine came out of a car being parted out by an area mechanic. I found it on Kijijji for C$400. The mechanic told me it was being retired because it needed a BCM and the owner didn't want to...

Re: Engine change 2000 LW1

If you search this forum you will find that I did an engine change on my LS1 a few years ago. You can do it from the top. I changed it because it had developed a rod knock. The replacement engine has...

Re: Engine change 2000 LW1

The facts that the TC let go just as you were cranking it to start and that there appears to no damage to the valves or pistons combine to mean that you MAY have dodged the bullet, and could just...

Re: 2001 LW dies on highway...

The symptoms match one of the electric in-tank fuel pump failures I have experienced on a car long in the past.

Re: 2001 LW200 wont start....

What about the connection of the wire from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid? There is also the neutral safety switch to look at. I assume you have checked the fuses!

Re: 2002 L200 Engine Cradle Question

The differences between the "round hole" and "square hole" variants of the AT subframe are very minor and easily dealt with. Those holes only deal with the clips for the AC lines and maybe the splash...

Re: 2000 LW2 stuck in park and other issues

I wonder if the problem is with the shift interlock solenoid. Lack of use can cause things to get sticky. The ticking may be related to this as well.

Re: Power Steering only working with Strong Arm Power

The dirty fluid could be an effect or a cause of the pump failure. Your pump wore out. Dirt makes pumps wear. Wear product = dirt. Try to get as much of the dirty fluid out of the system by repeating...

Re: Ever notice your struts making nose when cold?

Yes, grunting from cold struts is normal. I also have the original struts at 360,000+ km and don't expect to ever change them. This is not the first car I have had with that kind of strut life. I am...

Re: 2003 Vue V6 - Code 2176 - Throttle Body 6 months after Oil Cooler replaced

I'm not sure why you have a V6 question on the Ion Forum, as they were never equipped that way. You will get a better answer on the Vue and L-Series forums. "fdryer" (Fred Dryer) on L-Series is the...

Re: Need to replace wiper blade switch; it started smoking a lot

If you are going to the bone yard to get the wiper switch then you should also get the turn signal/headlight stalk and the "SIR" coil (usually called an airbag clock spring at a JY). The cancel lug...

Re: Is the front camber easily adjustable during an alignment?

The offset alignment bolts would work OK for the front. It would probably be cheaper than disassembling to grind out the holes in the strut. For the rear, you have two options. Saturn has issued a...

Re: 2002 Saturn L200 dashboard lamp (light bulb) replacement

This car has what must be the easiest instrument cluster to remove on any modern car. I have never bothered to remove any fuses or even the kick panel underneath. You only need to remove the top edge...

Re: Figuring out visor color for replacement

Re: Frustrated - can't find normal PID values anywhere

Unfortunately, the thermostats used on these cars can fail open, resulting overly cool running. The problem is a rubber seal around the edge of the valve plate that disintegrates or peels off,...

Re: timing chain question

You should not have to remove the engine to replace the TC. There is actually more room than appears once you remove the upper engine mount. One trick I used was to jam a scissor jack between the...

Re: 2002 Saturn LW200

You should definitely check the front subframe/engine cradle/K-Frame for corrosion. These are prone to rusting out, starting at the front attachment bolts especially on the right side where the...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - Steering issues

His subframe is rotted out. The control arms can flap around because they are attached to it. If it is really bad the half shafts can pull out of the transmission. Been there, etc. The fix is to go...
