Re: 2002 L200 Engine Cradle Question

The differences between the "round hole" and "square hole" variants of the AT subframe are very minor and easily dealt with. Those holes only deal with the clips for the AC lines and maybe the splash...

Re: 2000 LW2 stuck in park and other issues

I wonder if the problem is with the shift interlock solenoid. Lack of use can cause things to get sticky. The ticking may be related to this as well.

Re: Power Steering only working with Strong Arm Power

The dirty fluid could be an effect or a cause of the pump failure. Your pump wore out. Dirt makes pumps wear. Wear product = dirt. Try to get as much of the dirty fluid out of the system by repeating...

Re: Ever notice your struts making nose when cold?

Yes, grunting from cold struts is normal. I also have the original struts at 360,000+ km and don't expect to ever change them. This is not the first car I have had with that kind of strut life. I am...

Re: 2003 Vue V6 - Code 2176 - Throttle Body 6 months after Oil Cooler replaced

I'm not sure why you have a V6 question on the Ion Forum, as they were never equipped that way. You will get a better answer on the Vue and L-Series forums. "fdryer" (Fred Dryer) on L-Series is the...

Re: Need to replace wiper blade switch; it started smoking a lot

If you are going to the bone yard to get the wiper switch then you should also get the turn signal/headlight stalk and the "SIR" coil (usually called an airbag clock spring at a JY). The cancel lug...

Re: Is the front camber easily adjustable during an alignment?

The offset alignment bolts would work OK for the front. It would probably be cheaper than disassembling to grind out the holes in the strut. For the rear, you have two options. Saturn has issued a...

Re: 2002 Saturn L200 dashboard lamp (light bulb) replacement

This car has what must be the easiest instrument cluster to remove on any modern car. I have never bothered to remove any fuses or even the kick panel underneath. You only need to remove the top edge...

Re: Figuring out visor color for replacement

Re: Frustrated - can't find normal PID values anywhere

Unfortunately, the thermostats used on these cars can fail open, resulting overly cool running. The problem is a rubber seal around the edge of the valve plate that disintegrates or peels off,...

Re: timing chain question

You should not have to remove the engine to replace the TC. There is actually more room than appears once you remove the upper engine mount. One trick I used was to jam a scissor jack between the...

Re: 01' L200 rpm problem

The first things to do are clean the throttle body. lubricate the throttle shaft, clean the air bypass (servo) valve and check the throttle cable for free movement. I don't see where you changed the...

Re: 2002 Saturn LW200

You should definitely check the front subframe/engine cradle/K-Frame for corrosion. These are prone to rusting out, starting at the front attachment bolts especially on the right side where the...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - Steering issues

His subframe is rotted out. The control arms can flap around because they are attached to it. If it is really bad the half shafts can pull out of the transmission. Been there, etc. The fix is to go...

Re: Transmission compatibility

Because of the many name changes of this model over the six years of production, parts databases are often wrong. For instance, the engine cradle for the 2000 LS1 MT isn't listed as being the same...

Re: 2.2 l timing questions, new to forum.

@ssicarman - The timing marks you are referring to are the sprocket marks against the reference points/marks on the block, not on the timing chain.

Re: 2.2 l timing questions, new to forum.

I agree that the TC marks will not align after 4 turns. The number of teeth on the cam sprockets is twice the number on the crankshaft sprocket. This gives us the 4 stroke cycle. It requires two...

Re: Gas Smell

Regarding the OCI, this is calculated by the ECM (I think, could be the BCM) from the time, distance, number of starts, temperature, and ??? It does not monitor how dirty the oil is. If the shop...

Re: Radiator Fan stuck on?

Before you do anything else, replace the engine coolant thermostat. This is a $30 part and only takes an hour to do. There is a rubber seal around the valve disk that degrades and prevents it from...
