Re: 2008 vue no heat

It's a shame that Saturn/GM decided not to place a temperature gauge at the instrument cluster in your VUE. If the water pump failed in this situation, it suggests to me that the impeller was somehow...

Re: 2008 vue no heat

I've never heard of such a thing happening at any time when I was in auto repair related businesses. When doing normal driving in current cold weather where you are what's been the reading of the...

Re: 07 ion water pump replacement... timing chain also?

An increase in RPM when the heater is on will occur if the mode (vent) selector is set past the "12 o'clock" position to the right by a few "clicks" as this automatically engages the air conditioner...

Re: 07 ion water pump replacement... timing chain also?

1) If you're concerned that your money might be taken without a repair being performed, then ask the mechanic to save ALL of the old parts for you. If he's honest then this will be of no trouble for...

Re: minimum cranking amps?

There may be a numbered tag remaining on my old harness, but even then it might not be the same as the catalog's replacement p/n. While attempting to look up part numbers from my phone's apps I've...

Re: Changing gear ratios?

You are quite correct that manufacturers give little room for modification of transmissions fitted to FWD vehicles. As a non-Aura owner and one who is decidedly unfamiliar with re-gearing a...

Re: minimum cranking amps?

The wires were damaged in the L/R door harness between the door and the pillar where the wires are moving each time the door is opened and closed, and within an inch and a half of its connector. My...

Re: minimum cranking amps?

The most likely location for a short is in the loom between the center pillar and the door. That's where it was on my car. The repair lasted about three or four years. Then I re-repaired it. When I...

Re: Timing belt tensioner help

Welcome to SaturnFans, Sparta!

While I don't drive a VUE with that engine, I do have an Acura MDX with the same one. First of all, a ticking noise is not likely to be caused by a tensioner. It is...

Re: Do the On/Off switches on heated seats go bad?

There's really very little to actually removing the center dash console bezel. No tools are required for this whatsoever. It is pressed in by hand and pulled out by hand. Just get your fingers as...

Re: Is the dealership double dipping on labor?

Welcome to SaturnFans, TimingBelt?askr!
I'd agree. This is a sensible consideration relative to the crankshaft seal replacement.

In the first sentence of this quote segment is the "double-dip."...

Re: 2001 L200, how to program new keyless remote

Welcome to SaturnFans, RTH! As stated by rb6667, these RKE fobs must be done by someone at a dealership, or with a locksmith who has the Tech II Scan Tool or its equivalent.

BTW, your car has...

Re: L200 waterpump replacement

I picked up an OTC #6616 water pump pulley holder tool. The "half-moon" tool didn't seem like a good choice to me.

Some years ago I did my first water pump replacement. I have since done it a...

Re: minimum cranking amps?
