Re: Recommended oil change

Better oil has better detergents, which would help move that dirt to your filter where it would be captured. I suppose if enough dirt made it through your filter might stop filtering, and then...

Re: Need For New Struts? Different Tires?

For what it's worth you don't have to have a short life tire to get good ride quality. When I did my research for our 05 4runner I found that Michelin's best-riding truck/SUV tire (per both...

Re: Recommended oil change

The OLM does not know what quality of oil you have put in the car. It assumes you're using regular oil that meets GM's minimum requirements and a stock-quality filter.

So the way I see it, if GM...

Re: Weird behavior: Keyless entry inconsistent and engine died shortly after starting

Hmmm. Well it has worked fine since then - several more days. Does the issue you're mentioning typically happen just once in several days to begin with?

What's weird is how it just so happened...

Weird behavior: Keyless entry inconsistent and engine died shortly after starting up

I parked at the bank earlier today, got out, hit the keyless entry lock button... nothing. Hit it again watching the lights and locks... still nothing. Hit it again, hard and it worked. Hit it...

Re: First significant repairs at 70k miles

Yeah I was going to say my Aura went in for this as a recall issue.



Is there a known coolant leak issue with the 4 cylinder?

Re: steering issue

The 4-cyl Auras have electric power steering, which doesn't using power steering fluid to my knowledge (?). So there'd be no fluid to check.

Re: Clarion VX400 radio install

Re: 30 MPG on 2007 Aura XE? Gas mileage issues

The 3.6 and 3.5 are not even somewhat related in their overall design.

Re: Wheels for sale

You should put them on ebay. Those wheels will work for more than just an Aura so you'll reach a wider audience. IMO you're asking too much for them and to far too limited of an audience here.

Re: 30 MPG on 2007 Aura XE? Gas mileage issues

No offense but I just don't believe ANY air filter is going to add 12% to your fuel economy unless your current air filter was extremely dirty.

You could literally remove your air filter...

I didn't even know there was another Saturn forum. I've never seen Charlie post before either.

Re: 2008 Aura A/C Drain (Duck valve) Clogged

Is that what lets condensation drip when the A/C is running? I never realized there was actually a valve there. Makes sense, but I just figured it was an open hose/line.

Re: Cabin air filter is possible!

I did this today. I bought a 20x25x1 filter and found I could make exactly 6 appropriate sized filters from it (25/3, 20/9.75). I went ahead and bought the 'best' filter I could buy at home...

Re: Stock System Power Output???

Even if GM gave it a rating in watts (which they wouldn't do unless it was a premium branded system), the rating is pretty meaningless.

You can take a given head unit and claim it's 10 watts per...

Re: New Guy with Aura Suspension Problems

Good point. I'm crazy for thinking they'd have a solution after a few years of seeing cars come in with the same problem. They've had intermediate steering shaft issues for 8-9 years now and yet...

Re: New Guy with Aura Suspension Problems

The suspension should be nearly identical between the two cars. I'd say something is wrong with yours.

When I was shopping I actually found the Malibu LTZ w/ 18s to ride noticeably stiffer than...

Definitely not a coincidence. Mine had the same problem at the exact same time (when my on star cell minutes expired).

I would assume it does since pretty much all modern engine designs seem to use ETC in place of a mechanical throttle. However after I changed my oil this past weekend and followed the oil reset...
