Re: Subframe Rust

I'll take a look at your post. I'm originally from NJ so the car spent 11 winters there. I've had it about 5. I mentally wrestled to convince myself to pay $1k on suspension (I've had rusted brake...

Subframe Rust

Took the 06 in for the clunk that the forum has me thinking is struts and sway bar links. Previous shop suggested those, but didn't have the parts so I went without at the time. Tried a new shop...

Re: Vue Lifespan

I guess I already knew the answer. The car's known for burning oil, eating wheel bearings, and a touchy front end. Given the burning is not too bad, it's probably worth further suspension work.

Vue Lifespan

2006 2.2L 5 Speed Manual with 177k checking in. Wondering if someone can tell me if I'm spending good money on bad.

I really don't want a newer car for a variety of reasons. Timing just isn't...

Re: 2006 Vue - Start/Run Issues

I appreciate the responses. I have an update:

I went back to the car after the shop closed (I already paid for the wheel bearing and oil change) and noticed that the security light stayed on after...

Re: 2006 Vue - Start/Run Issues

Thanks. I'm still searching around and going to try the other set of original keys + fob before anything else.

The sequence is just weird to me. It's:
-CEL comes on; somehow no gas cap
-Replace...

Re: 2006 Vue - Start/Run Issues

So after going to look at the car, it basically starts fine and sounds PK but dies after like three seconds. The shop thinks the security light is related but I think it is supposed to flash when...

2006 Vue - Start/Run Issues

This might be self-inflicted, but perhaps just a coincidence.

A few weeks ago my CEL came on, which was surprising. I didn't get a chance to look at it due to travel but thought the car might've...

Re: Odd Brake Noise

I appreciate the responses. I went ahead with the work the shop proposed (not the suspension work), and put 600 miles on it this weekend. Things seem better.

I agree - here's what they told me today:

Re: 2.2L Oil Pressure Light + Leak

Re: 2.2L Oil Pressure Light + Leak

Thanks for your reply.

The fluid color, smell, and viscosity indicates new engine oil. The light coming on and the low level on the dip stick confirms.

No other work was done, other than...

Re: Vue Maintenance

It was almost certainly an eyeball test on the compressor.

I was once on the side of the road with a failed tensioner in my SL1, so I know that pain.

The tire situation sucks because I canít...

Hi all,

I saw some hits for this in a search, but the problem is different.

Swapped it today. For reference, the torx screw screws into a small plastic fastener/push pin. I use a plastic panel pry removal tool for those.

Re: License Plate Light Bulb

Perfect - that is exactly it. Went and got a 2 pack for $5 at local parts store. But, it's a Torx screw, so I will have to change it tomorrow.
