Re: Replaced timing chain now it's a no crank no start

So the car is still working great?

I just replaced the cylinder head on a 2.4L 2008 Vue, identical to my 2007 Ion really. I guess the 2.2L head on your 2006 Ion is about the same also.

It is...

2.4L Ecotec: Same camshaft position sensors?

Are both the intake and exhaust camshaft position sensors the same on a 2008 Vue 2.4L XE (gas)?

Rockauto only lists 1 part under camshaft position sensor.

Re: Window switches

I am going to assume that the Vue electrical schematic is similar to the Ion schematic and my comments are based off that:

Re: 2007 saturn ion 2 driver door weathstrip

Go hit a junk yard and find a good used one for about $5.

Or, new ones are available on line for $50 (about 10x the price of used)

Re: 06 Ion Roof Trim Molding Strip Replacement

It is a simple repair, with one caveat.

MAKE SURE to remove the front one first.

Like the previous post mentioned, it is a T-15 Torx screw, just unscrew all of them. Then lift the front piece...

Re: Possible to open and replace components of BCM?

Have you considered the master switch on the driver's door? If that were bad, it could be sending a "UNLOCK" signal out constantly which would mimic what I understand to be your symptoms.

Re: Preparing to do a header and full exhaust, what to expect?

Soak your exhaust manifold studs/bolts with Kroil for a couple of days. You don't want to bust a stud in the head.

Re: amient temperature sensor location on 2008 saturn vue

It is in the same mini-wire harness with the hood-latch-closed sensor. Just follow those wires straight down.

Re: 2008 Vue XR chiming
