Re: Final wheel bearing

Itís $70 for bearing in your hand. That is not installed. You missed that? None installs a bearing for 70.

Re: 2003 vue awd

Re: 2003 Vue AWD V6 Timing belt

well, you could take off intake and pull heads as it would make removing the shortblock a bit easier. and than replace the bent valves. if you can pull the motor you can do the heads. valves are...

Re: 2003 Vue AWD V6 Timing belt

Belt is broke? Or it slipped? You can take off oil fill tube and see cams. Turn over crank (not easy) and see if cams move.

Re: Poping noise in front end.

look at the struts. maybe the top mounts. i think my noise could be due to that. as the struts are newish but i do not know about the mounts. cant go by appearance.

Re: Oil Choices for the Honda V6 - & Filters

Pennzoil blend is 40-50 % mix. I donít believe any brand is 90syn/10 Dino. Unless it costs 90% of full syn.
