Post PSA for those strange front-end clunks (Intermediate Steering Shaft) on your Vue

Or any car, really. Apparently GM had a really bad go with the first few generations of these shafts. If you don't read this whole thing, at least read this: SILICONE SPRAY LUBRICANT IS YOUR FRIEND....

Re: abs sensor vs bearing?

If you can't detect any issues coming from that wheel hub/bearing, I wouldn't bother changing the hub. Especially with a cheapie, unless you've done your research. Your factory hub bearing may very...

Re: Looking at an '04 Vue, any issues to watch for?

Transmission. Transmission, transmission. I just bought one with 95,000 miles. The transmission fluid never been changed. I did a complete exchange with some Amsoil synthetic fluid, and performance...

Re: What gaskets do I need for timing belt replacement? — 2006 Vue 3.5l V6

Good to know. I'll keep that in mind if I can't find gaskets or they're really expensive (still don't know what ones are needed, though...).

Any thoughts on tools to measure valve lash?

Question What gaskets do I need for timing belt replacement? — 2006 Vue 3.5l V6

Searched everywhere on here, no results. I'm using RockAuto. What gaskets do I need to order for the timing cover and related parts when replacing the timing belt? I'm doing the valve adjustment,...

Re: How do I check transmission fluid temperature?

@RoberyGary, they have two fluids. One for newer low-viscosity (like DW-1), the other for older standard fluids (like Z1). I have the higher viscosity fluid. It should be compatible, to my...

Question How do I check transmission fluid temperature?

I own a 2006 AWD 3.5L VUE. 150,000KM (~93,000 miles). I'm going to be towing with this vehicle, and I plan on installing a large transmission fluid cooler. What I'd like to know: is there any way to...

Re: windshield scratch removal ?

Re: Looking at buying a 2004-2005 V6 Vue, what should I look for...?

Just another update. Looks like that deal with the Vue fell through - after agreeing to the sale, the owner texted me saying they decided to sell to someone who messaged them before I did initially. ...

Fdryer, I'll take a look inside and at the panel when I get the chance. Thanks.

Re: 2007 VUE AC Weirdness

I believe it's manual/analog. I won't be with the Vue for another 3 days, so I can't confirm, but in my memory it was definitely analog.

Re: 2007 VUE AC Weirdness

Fdryer, it's a V6 2004 Vue (mentioned in my first post above). Not sure about mechanical differences between them.

Re: Looking at buying a 2004-2005 V6 Vue, what should I look for...?

Just thought I'd chime in with an update. I'm pretty much locked into a 2004 V6 FWD Vue, Black. 190,000KM (~118,500 miles). All service records included. Regular oil changes, garaged overnight inside...

Re: 2007 VUE AC Weirdness

Too late to edit - to clarify, the A/C won't turn on at all even directly after a start if the fan blower is set to 3 or 4. The fan blows, but the A/C won't turn on. Fight with it all you want, it...

Re: 2007 VUE AC Weirdness

Literally same issue here on my end. I just purchased a 2004 V6 FWD Vue, black. The A/C works on 1 and 2, but immediately when you turn it to 3 or 4 it disables itself. When you turn it back down to...

Thanks for the info!

I also have another option that came up that I'm quite interested in. A 2004 Vue, one driver, older woman, with all maintenance records. 191,000KM, or ~119,000 miles. Leather...

Re: Looking at buying a 2004-2005 V6 Vue, what should I look for...?

I wasn't aware of any of that... I just did some research. I'm still interested in buying it, it looks like you just need to modify the real facia. Not even the bumper.

The only thing I'm really...

Re: Quick Q - Strut upgrade

Okay, thanks for those tips guys. I'll keep that in mind. The FCS struts I have feel like they have very little shock absorption at any normal level of speed. Rough ride. I'm assuming what I'd be...

I recently replaced my (shot) springs/struts with quick-struts on all four wheels. Made by FCS. Chinese garbage. They work, though, and fixed up the ride like crazy.

Re: New Belt Tensioner Wobble
