Re: Parts rig

In my area, scrap dealers will buy the car and tow it away if you have the title. The scrap value for a car currently is about $200 - $350, depending on weight. You could recoup some of the...

Re: Door Squeek when opening

The door check strap (black plastic arm that goes into the A pillar) can be a source of squeaks. Use white lithium grease (available in a toothpaste size tube at many auto parts stores) to lube the...

Re: Finally got ignition recall completed

The new ignition cylinder was probably keyed to the original key-code, which would match the door lock cylinder.

Were only the keys replaced, or was the ignition cylinder also replaced? Have you...

Re: what part is this? help identify

It is one of the charging ports for the a/c lines. Some caps are serviced separately and often come on the new replacement lines. The tape prevents dust and dirt from entering the port or an...

Re: Stabilitrack much too sensitive

Have you checked the cold inflation tire pressure for all four tires? An under inflated tire, especially on the front, can cause questionable handling issues. Long shot - but you may have an under...

Re: V6 Wheel Cleaning Help!

I would NOT use acid based cleaner - due to damage potential. Some acid based cleaners can damage / stain the clear coat covering on the wheels.

Yes, that is the cleaner wax I referenced. I use...

Re: V6 Wheel Cleaning Help!

Have you tried using a good cleaner wax (such as Mequiars in the maroon bottle)? The stains may be removable with cleaner wax and some elbow grease. You could try one wheel and see if it helps.

Re: 03 Saturn Vue Belt Squeals

Does the engine also have one or more idler pulleys for the belt? If so, I would replace it also.

Re: Dealership says they can't diagnose transmission failure without Error codes

How do you accidentally erase trouble codes?

Why were you checking the codes if the vehicle was covered under a warranty?

Re: Horn stopped working. What happened??

I used to service a family member's 2006 Vue 3.5 FWD.

Have you used a genuine ACDelco pump - or an aftermarket pump? If aftermarket, buy an ACDelco pump.

Re: 31 MPG in a V6?

Your vehicle is rated 18 mpg city / 25 mpg highway by the EPA. A family member used to own a 2006 FWD Saturn Vue V-6 automatic that I helped maintain. I find your mileage claims dubious.

Re: Rear Door Latch Mechanism

The part that is "stuck" is the door latch mechanism. It must be removed from inside the door, after panel removal. The third picture is the door latch striker.

Re: 2004 3.5L Saturn Vue Condenser Replacement

No - but have you tried AC Delco. Their parts are OEM, usually fit perfectly and have good quality.

Re: Repair issue 2006 Vue

If I remember correctly, the vent solenoid was serviced separately and easy to replace (one electrical connector). I think it was under the left rear of the vehicle.

Re: Repair issue 2006 Vue

After getting gas and you start the engine, does it run rough for several seconds after starting? Do you have a habit of adding more gas after the fuel nozzle clicks off the first time?

Re: Throttle surges while in gear at idle - 2006 Saturn Vue 3.5 V6 FWD

Have you ensured that the inside of the throttle body and butterfly valve is clean? If the inside of the bore and edges of the valve have "gunk" built up on them, it will not permit the correct...

Re: Why would the AC compressor leak antifreeze?

Do not add Freon refrigerant to the system - it uses R134a refrigerant.
