Re: 2007 AWD V6 CEL Light On then Off

Light may be off but it's still stored in the memory. Need to scan it and see if it's the same or a new code.

Re: Transmission issues

Part that thing out or put it on Craigslist for $500 and take the first offer over $250. I can get clean good running 3.5L Vues for $1,000 all day long. Not worth spending any more money on it if...

Don't worry about it unless you have to pass emissions inspection.

Re: 2002 Saturn Vue

There was a recall for 2002-2004 Vues for the ignition switch but not sure if your problem is related.

Re: "Hosed" - Rear brake line snapped

If this is a one time thing, you can buy brake lines with the correct ends attached in various lengths. Take the remains to the parts store to match up the fittings and total length. Then use a $10...

Re: 2005 Saturn Vue Oil Ring Burning Suggestions.?

That's what? $5 or $6 a month? $60 or $70 a year? I wouldn't bother doing anything. With the money you save not doing oil changes, it's nearly a wash.

Re: A/C Compressor - Oil or Coolant Leak

All depends on how well it's been maintained and the current condition. Sold my 04 a month ago for $5,000 but it was a Redline so not a direct comparison. It had high miles but all the service was up...

Re: Multiple compressors

I understand Chinese parts are of varying quality, but at least the AC Delco parts made in China that are also used as OEM in GM cars have more quality and production control due to the resources of...

Re: Multiple compressors

Compressors going bad after just a year in service? I'm guessing the shop used a low priced Chinese version instead of AC Delco. Spend the extra 2 bills on OEM the next time.

Re: A/C Compressor - Oil or Coolant Leak

2. If I don't stop the leak of fluid/oil from the compressor it will eventually seize and could snap the drive belt?

No, when much of the freon has leaked out, a low pressure switch in the system...

Re: A/C Compressor - Oil or Coolant Leak

Not unless the clutch locks up AND so does the compressor.

Re: A/C Compressor - Oil or Coolant Leak

How fast is it leaking? If topping it off every 3 or 4 weeks with $2 of freon during the 4 months of hot weather is what it needs to stay cold, I'd stick with that myself.

Re: A/C Compressor - Oil or Coolant Leak

For $200 that is what a flipper would use to sell the car. It will work a year, maybe 2, but much longer than that is uncertain, however the OEM compressor is still working after 14 years. The thing...

Not much room to remove the compressor let alone work on it.

Re: A/C Compressor - Oil or Coolant Leak

Then there is a leak. On an older car it's usually not economical to do a major repair like replace the compressor unless you can do it yourself. And if a charge lasts 4-6 weeks vs. 4-6 days would be...

Re: A/C Compressor - Oil or Coolant Leak

The dye tends to pool at the lowest surface due to gravity. Could be 5 years worth of accumulation. If it works fine at speed, compressor itself is fine and isn't leaking so much that it doesn't...

Re: Advice post accident

I'm assuming its AWD and not a Redline. You should be getting a check for at least $5,000 less your deductible if it was your fault. You would never be able to get that much for it selling it after...
