Re: 2002 LW200 Power Steering Quit

I'm a fan using the recommended fluid for the power steering system. Power steering fluid is specified for that unit because the hydraulic pressure is much greater there than in the transmission....

Re: MAP Sensor Code

I think you shouldn't bother checking as to why the Check Engine/MIL is on all the time as it appears to be unnecessary in your situation. BTW, what kind of car/SUV/truck are you concerned with...

Remember that the Oil Life Monitor calculates the oil change interval based on various factors, but - interestingly - mileage is not among them. The article linked below gives useful information...

Re: Car will crank but not start

The suggestion of tapping on a fuel pump with a hammer to jar something loose so as to allow the fuel pump to engage is of no use on an L-Series car. The fuel pump is inside of the fuel tank.

Re: Your thoughts - is this too much preventive maintenance?

When I look at the mileage you have on the LW200 I think to myself, "it's finally broken in!" :D:D

Of course, no one knows when a significant part failure may occur so taking precautions to...

Re: Keep blowing fuse to fuel pump

I appear to be ignorant of the shield you're describing - I have no idea what it is. What does "AL" stand for?

Oh no...a CV axle has to be replaced. Could I do it myself?

The short answer to my question above is no. I had gotten to the point of needing to separate the inner CV joint from the transaxle at the driver side, but ran into trouble while working with this in...

Re: comparing the Lseries V6 to the 4 cyl

Trade offs, indeed! Your points here are well taken, Russet.

I had a conversation several years ago with a friend of mine who'd purchased a 2010 or 2012 Dodge Challenger with a V8. He explained...

Re: How Much Off Is Too Much? (Timing Belt)

Ah...my misunderstanding. :xeye: I thought that perhaps you knew of a donor car with a good engine that you could acquire.

If what you're suggesting is installing a 2.2L in place of the V6 then it...

Re: How Much Off Is Too Much? (Timing Belt)

If the point made in your OP is correct then it's not surprising that these compression readings are low. In the 2000 Saturn L81 FSM (3.0L V6) it states that the "Standard" compression is 190 psi...

Re: comparing the Lseries V6 to the 4 cyl

There's no doubt that the L61 2.2L engine is less expensive to maintain and far easier to work on. There is much more open, unused space in the engine compartment. Replacement parts availability for...

Re: Switching BCM-sticker shock?

The current retail price I see for a BCM on a 2002 L-Series with a 2.2L engine (sedan or wagon use the same part no.) is $478.25. I would guess that labor time would be at around 1.5 hours and the...
