Re: viability of engine replacement in L100

I am a mechanic by trade and have a shop at home. I purchased my stick shift car with a bad engine. It had been run low on oil and had tossed a rod through the block. I purchased a running but...

Re: Needing Fuel Tank Shield

I suspect you want a shield from a 2001-2005. The 2000 model year had a smaller fuel tank and the exhaust routing was across the bottom rather than around the driver’s side. If I part any more cars I...

Re: LW300 Timing belt replacement issue/Crank pulley question.

There was a production break in the middle of 2002 model year cars and lots of stuff changed including the timing components. I don’t know why they don’t make changes at year breaks, probably just...

Re: Antifreeze is leaking!!! Help

We fill the system to the top. With air entering down in the system the leak will show up pretty quickly. I found a split top tank on an Explorer the other day after filling the system to the top....

Re: Antifreeze is leaking!!! Help

We have a short hose on one side of the T. We disconnect one of the small hoses at the pressure tank and add the T and the small section of hose. You can use the factory clamp on the T if the hose is...

Re: Antifreeze is leaking!!! Help

We made an adaptor for our hand pump pressure tester at work. We removed the hose from the pump and installed a piece of 5/16” fuel hose and a T. We now connect to one of the small 5/16 or 3/8 hoses...

Re: The four L series in the driveway

My stick shift car is the only one of the 9 I have had that has any rust. The rust is very light on some of the suspension parts and brake parts. This car came from Spokane Wa. And probably ventured...

Re: 2000 LS2 Rear End Problems

There are “rose” bushings where the control arms meet the knuckle. These allow movement on two planes as the suspension moves. There are many posts on replacing those.

My car clunked and “side...

Re: Rear suspension question

The knuckle and the three arms are the same with or without disc/abs or any combination. So yes they will work, get the car aligned when done. The toe is set at the front of the trailing arm. The...

Re: Sub Frame LS2, 2000

If the toe setting was correct before your alignment should be very close. They did not need to adjust my front camber after my strut replacement.

Sway bar links cause noise industry wide, I just installed a Moog problem solver set on my Lincoln Navigator.

Re: Rattles And Clunking Noises.

I have found the sway bar links fail and cause clunks in the front ends.

Re: 03 Saturn L300 broken timing belt?

Hopefully one of the replacement parts failed and the shop can go back to the parts manufacturer for a parts and labor claim. Your car will have several bent valves.

Re: Sub Frame LS2, 2000

The strut will stop spinning with the car on the ground. Be careful, I stripped the top of one of my new KYB struts and had to rethread to a new size. The top nut and rubber piece only retains the...

Re: 2002 LW200 Gasoline Leak

At least the L series cars have plastic fuel lines. The Ions have steel lines and they rust through. Didn’t you cut a hole under the back seat and replace your pump a while back? I’d look there first...

Re: 2000 LW2 3.0l Expansion Tank

It is part of the system to help get air out of the radiator. You must use it or your cooling system will not work correctly. They used that hose from the radiator to the tank because it is needed.

Re: 2000 LW2 3.0l Expansion Tank

See if the 2.2 tank has the nipple. It just may need to be opened so it can be used. The tanks are same otherwise.
