Re: Just bought a 2006 Vue, any advice?

They are hard to find and you could sell them for good money.

If you see a Redline, grab the bumpers.

Re: AIRBAG DISABLE (seat)

If they go off, it would be a totally random event causing loss of control and perhaps a crash that kills you. But you probably have a better chance of winning a Powerball before that happens.

Re: Just bought a 2006 Vue, any advice?

Might think about the timing belt. It's good to 100K but rubber also ages and most places suggest replacement after 8 years. 12 years might make me nervous but I've had a 25 year old car with the...

Re: Time to replace the shocks on my 2006 Vue

You're just giving them a blank check. If ain't broke don't fix it. 37,000 miles? I haven't replaced rear shocks on 200,000 mile models and the front struts were worn but usable. Why do you think...

Re: looking to buy

I have this very clean 2004 with high miles that runs great but won't be cheap like you probably want.

Re: 10% rule

Guessing it's the inner rail. https://www.gmpartsdirect.com/oem-parts/gm-inner-rail-19121003 Probably add another $800 in labor to replace. If it was my car I would just leave off the nut and call...

Re: First attempt at strut replacement goes down in flames

The knuckle bolts are splined and are not meant to be turned. You need to unscrew the bolts first.

Re: FNG- Cornfused

You have the 3.0L engine like in the first picture. In 2004 they switched to the Honda 3.5L engine for their V6 up until 2007. The red covers like in the picture only came in the Redline version, all...

Re: Oil Leak 2007 Vue FWD V6

Most 10+ year old vehicles will leak some fluids. If that's all you have, not worth fixing unless you are replacing the transmission because you have to take it out to get to the seal. You can try...

Re: Shuddering and shaking oh my

Three out of three Vues I've had with symptoms you mentioned I've fixed by replacing the control valve in an hour or two for $25 in parts and freon. All were at least 11 years old and over 190,000...

Re: Uneven rear tire wear. Stumped.

While there is nothing to adjust, you might be able to get shims to adjust the hubs into the correct position. First you have to figure out if it's a toe or camber problem. Then loosen the hub bolts...

Re: Need technical assistance identifying a problem

Even with over 200,000 miles I've never replaced inner rods. They are well sealed unless the boots are torn and rarely give trouble unless you hit a curb or something. Don't remember how easy the...

The 2007 engine should have looked like:

Except for the red bits that came on Redline models.

Re: Shuddering and shaking oh my

Your signature mentions 2007 with a 3.6L which didn't come out until 2008. Perhaps you installed the wrong parts? The a/c problem is most likely the control valve in the compressor. $20 in parts and...

Nice project for somebody.

Thought it was from the south pole from the first picture, but apparently it's from south carolina.

Re: 3 Disc brake warnings

Petroleum based grease is never used on brake parts for that reason and they can run at high temperatures and contaminate pads and shoes. Ceramic based lubes are best for high temperatures. I prefer...

Re: Need technical assistance identifying a problem

Go to each tire and and grab at 9 and 3 o'clock. Shake in and out, looking and feeling for play in the joint. If none, I'd leave it alone. Check again the next time you rotate tires or change the...

You do have to trim the bumper cover but pretty minor.
