Re: 2001 L200 cooling fan not working

Are you sure that this set up is a single cooling fan only? Any time I've been to a wrecking yard to look for items for my car - and I've done this several times - I have yet to see any L-Series car...

Re: What's with all these L200's lately? do stats lie?

June of '04 was the last month of production for the L Series signaling a truncated run with a low number of vehicles. Apparently May of '04 would've started the production run of the 2005 model...

Re: What to look for when looking to buy a Vue?

The Outlook models had the 6T75 transmission which had a significant number of failures due to a "3-5-R wave plate" which, as failure occurred, meant that the transmission couldn't shift to those...

Re: coolant leak

The following may be unnecessary questions, but I'm left wondering: has someone actually added coolant to the system on a somewhat regular basis recently? Could it have been condensation that was...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - DNJ Engine Overhaul Kit - Anyone?

^Agreed! If the cylinder heads are removed they need to be checked for any warpage. This is a "must" - no exceptions whatsoever. If warpage is beyond tolerance - yes, there is an acceptable level of...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - DNJ Engine Overhaul Kit - Anyone?

Rj 2000 LS2's point regarding the replacement of the head gasket to correct an oil leak is quite correct and I should've also caught that, but I didn't. The head gasket seals the water passages...

Re: gm hvac mode actuator gear wheels

If it were me I would inspect the actuator as quickly as I could to determine if it needs to be replaced. When I took off the donor mode actuator from the car at Pick-Your-Part I removed it with the...

Re: gm hvac mode actuator gear wheels

I want to make sure that I'm clear about this repair: are you replacing only the cam or the cam and actuator?

All three West Coast states have huge ongoing fires. Where I live the smoke is...

Re: gm hvac mode actuator gear wheels

Yup, that's what happens when the parts division and service division lack adequate "communication" regarding how things are named.
