Re: Help! Rear Hatch Won't Open

Now mine's jambed. My Relay is my wife's daily driver. I closed the rear hatch after loading groceries. The first slam didn't result in getting it latched. A second attempt was similarly...

Re: Unlocking Theft Deterrent Radio

I wonder if that old Pontiac dealer code still works?

Any help in obtaining the code before a planned power outage?

Re: No heat in back

Guess I should post an update. Long story short, the oil changer had to top off the coolant the last couple 2 or 3 visits (didn't say a word to me). Then I noticed the fluid down and assumed he'd...

Re: 2006 Saturn Relay AC Drain ~ Saturated Floors Upfront

My '07 is the same way. Water pools on the driver's side and now the passenger side. Under the carpet is a rubber membrane (for lack of a better word) which is backed with foam which is against the...

Re: Flappity Rattle of Doom (Again)

One would think you could induce loose body panels or a forgotten wrench to rattle 'whacka-whacka-whacka' by swerving the car left to right while under way (watch for traffic). IF this isn't the...

Re: What do you think of buying from Tire Rack?

The only way to balance a tire is on the rim you intend to use it on. You don't balance a tire, but a tire and rim. There is no way to balance a mail order tire without a rim. Unless you have the...

Re: Door wont close

The way to 'fix' an open door with an already 'closed' latch is to pull on he door handle while operating the latch (on end of door). The latch is a cam or pawl which needs to be rotated one way or...

Re: "Loose Fuel Cap" --- not

Just read this. I'll check into it.

Things are looking up. Due to some mis-informed rent-a-cops, my wife was forced to drive over a curb to get into a parking lot in order to to get to her job...

No heat in back

Blower works as expected, but only blows cold air. Using neither the Center console nor the Aux controller in the headliner for the second seaters to use works. All blow and now heat.

Where do...

Re: Temp selector and vent selector?

I've never had this apart, but if it is similar to most US made HVAC controls, it is mechanical. Turning the knob, turns a gear inside the dash which pushes or pulls on a cable which opens and...

Re: Rear Wiper Motor/110 outlet

Will look into de-gunking the motor mechanicals when it warms up.

As for the 110 outlet. I used it a few times to charge up a camera battery. Once I even plugged in a household extension cord...

Re: HAVE A LITTLE FUN - What's your biggest repair mistake?

My son's 80 something Bonneville kept blowing the fuel pump fuse.

Went to Napa and got a replacement electric pump/float/sender. $75.00, if memory serves me.... and sometimes it don't.

Re: Sl1 Heater Woes

Count me as one with a plugged 2000, SL1 heater core.

I didn't remove the core to clear it.

Follow the hose from the over-flow/expansion tank. It's a 3/4"-ish hose. It ends at a "y" in the...

'77 Pontiac Catalina, appropriately painted lemon yellow.

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Replaced the Long Life Coolant (OEM?) on my 2000 SL-1.

In the process I flushed the heater core. Instead of removing it, I removed the hose which goes from the expansion tank 'y' to the engine. ...

Re: averaging 25mpg, what gives!?

I'm with SignMaster. If you put 12+ gallons in your tank, I'd be checking the owners manual for fuel tank capacities.

My SL1 has a, specified, 10 gallon tank. The most I ever put into it was...

Re: Floor pan

A sledge hammer will probably do the trick. But you will want to hit the face of the sledge square with the metal to avoid concentrating the force of the blow in too small of an area. This could...

Re: 2002 SL1 Missing

My guess is water has 'wicked' it's way into part of the ignition module. This would explain the delay in adverse results. Back in the day, I'd say you probably have moisture in your distributor. ...

Re: roof rails install help needed

Probably best to remove the headliner. Look for wiring, or other obstructions before drilling. Use Big #(*$ washers underneath, or fair sized pieces of steel to back up the bolts. I would start...

Re: 2002 L100 Door Lock Relay problem

Re: I'm going insane-- Need help with the dinging!:)

Apparently, the 'puter 'thinks' the door is ajar. If the sliding door is not, in fact ajar, make sure the nest of contacts at the front edge of the door which contacts the contacts on the door frame...
