Re: L200 Radiator Fan Not Turning On

Welcome to SaturnFans, smccain953! You are correct that there is only one coolant temperature sensor for the L-Series car, whether four cylinder or V6. If memory serves correctly, there are some...

Re: Autotrans won't shift out of first sometimes

After checking this member's posting history it appears likely to be regarding an SL1. However, the OP will still have to confirm this. (IMO, he posted to the wrong forum area.)

Re: Flywheel Inspection Plate ? 2.2 non-Eco Tech.

In general, I see your point - but really......very common? The operative word in the quote above is the qualifier, "if." Out of every 10,000 cars produced by any given manufacturer, how many are...

That's really wild! This seems to be a rare failure, generally, although I'm sorry it happened to you.I agree!

Re: 05 Vue won't start, no check engine light after hitting deer

Good!
Good!


Follow fdryer's suggestions first. If it starts and runs normally then you can dismiss the compression test for the time being. Should the test be necessary, however, you will need...

Re: Replaced rotors and pads -- still have a squeal

Macgyver's point is correct. He's provided good advice!

Please remember that there are some parts which require a lubricant and others which do not. Placing lubricant where it doesn't belong will,...

Re: Replaced rotors and pads -- still have a squeal

Re: thinking of selling /trading my 3 Dr Xr Astra

Astrafasta's advice is very good. An obvious difficulty for you lies in the fact that your Astra XR is in no condition to be traded in or sold to a private party. There aren't many options for you...

Re: decided to sell my car

If I were in your position that would probably be my reaction as well regarding my LS1. Why would this be?

1) I've had this car longer than my previous ones;
2) it's been highly reliable with no...

Re: 06 AWD v6 vue price worth

Welcome to SaturnFans, no_rex4u! I'm not a VUE owner, but if you're satisfied with what you know about this vehicle then I think $3K is a perfectly fine number to start with as an offer. It's likely...

Re: 2005 Saturn L300 TCM Disconecting U0101 Code

When this car first came out in M.Y. 2000 and I saw that it was called an LS (or LS1, or LS2) I had the same reaction which you had (and it was prior to my owning an LS1). It was utterly foolish of...

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

It is relatively common to have a timing chain rattle at start up - lasting two seconds or less - and then not occurring further until the next start up, or perhaps not occurring for several hours,...

Re: 2005 Saturn L300 TCM Disconecting U0101 Code

With regard to the engine identification two things lead me to know that it's a V6:

1) it has a TCM which means it also has an ECM. The ECOTECs had a PCM monitoring both engine and transmission;...

Re: Looking for Axel shaft

The fact is, lamentably, that the Astra's sales in North America were rather low. From '08 to '10 they totaled only 18,291 in sales (a mere 25 were sold in 2010). This accounts for the relative...

Re: Very happy with my L200

I'm with you. The L200's with the ECOTEC engine can be impressive with their fuel economy for the body they're powering. BTW, your information says you have a 2001 L-Series, but your message reads...

If I lived near you I'd certainly be interested. (Sadly, the drive between Cleveland, OH and my residence is a bit too far to bring it back home. :( :()

Re: 2005 Saturn L300 TCM Disconecting U0101 Code

My question doesn't relate to your driveability issue. Has the timing belt been replaced? Hopefully, it has. If not, its replacement is overdue and it's very risky for one to put it off too long. (It...

Re: Cross threaded oil drain plug

Welcome to SaturnFans, limpetmine!

There are some problems with the vehicle identification. In 2006 the VUE had either a 2.2L four cyl. engine, or a 3.5L V6 (Honda engine). 2003 was the last year...

Your description of the MAP sensor's location is correct. The only thing one must do is use a new sealing grommet when installing a MAP sensor, whether new or reinstalling one already in use on the...
