Re: 2003 LW300 Front Drivers Caliper locked up

This is new to me...good to know!

I'd forgotten about the deformation issue regarding the reservoir cap seal. Relative to the flushing of the system it begs the question, HOW was the system...

Re: shimmy at rear axle

Thank you for the reply!

Did you feel this by hand or did you measure it?

Re: 2003 LW300 Front Drivers Caliper locked up

Agreed!

This could be as simple as a bad caliper. I'm not suggesting that the caliper is malfunctioning, I cannot know unless I'm there with you examining this. Thus far your trouble has been...

Re: shimmy at rear axle

Thank you, floridasl22002. Well, that's essentially three votes leaning towards a rotor related concern. Where did the third vote come from? My father, the trained former master mechanic.

Re: shimmy at rear axle

Thank you for the reply, 02 LW300. If it's a rotor problem then do you think that I'd need to replace the pads again?

Wrench shimmy at rear axle

For the past three weeks or so I've been experiencing a shimmy/light shaking at the rear axle while braking.

First, some background:
1) rear wheel hub/bearing assemblies are factory originals...

Re: After almost 19 years of service my car didn't start...

The shop I sent my car to charged me $250.00 labor to r&r the fuel tank. A likely retail price range for a new pump would be about $320.00 to $350.00. The $600.00 price you paid for the replacement...

Re: rear wheel bearings suspicions in L100

Correction: should have read, "Totally OUT of consideration in my opinion!"

Re: After almost 19 years of service my car didn't start...

In my case the fuel filter was not replaced during this job because I'd installed a new GM brand part about a year ago. Fuel filter replacement has been necessary when I've been able to feel...

Re: rear struts L100

^I'm glad that you've found a matching pair of rear struts. Frankly, I'm not fond of installing struts which provide a stiffer ride than what the factory part offered unless there's some important...

Re: rear struts L100

If you can find some time to do so call Monroe's tech assistance line and inform them of what you'd discovered. The company is very responsive to problems with their products and would like to know...

Re: rear struts L100

I'm not doubting the information you're giving us, but this is remarkably odd. I went to Monroe's own online catalog and the look up was direct - a rear strut for a 2000 LS2 3.0L is p/n 71309 without...

Re: rear struts L100

Yup. No disagreement there. (Just a note: M.Y. 2001 and 2002 was L100 = M.Y. 2000 was LS)
It is true that the OEM suppliers did sell complete strut units (strut, spring, and carrier assy.) for the...

Re: rear struts L100

We can answer questions about factory replacement parts and their prices by visiting OEM parts websites. The one that I've made occasional purchases through shows all rear strut related parts as...

Re: 2003 l200

I'm going to bet on the likelihood that the concern here is with a drum brake set up so here goes...The "R" in the picture indicates the side.

FWIW: in the future you might consider a drum to disc...

Re: 2003 L200 BCM problems?

Welcome to SaturnFans, vwsquare71!

Another unexpected improvement resulting from the replacement of the fuel pump is that the transmission is shifting more smoothly.

Re: 2002 LW Starting Issues

While perhaps not at the root of this starting problem, it also seems that there may be a problem with the RKE fob, whether its the battery getting weak or if the contacts are worn. Check the fob's...

Re: Power steering question

Guessing at the cost of a repair "from a distance" is awkward but I'll give you my "2 bits" worth.

First of all, what are the variables related to this job?
1) Cost of parts vary per brand...

Re: can car painters be shysters too?

Yes, painters can be bad just as some mechanics might be. One must find people they can trust to get a good recommendation for such work. As for me, I found that a national body and paint shop nearby...

Re: 2000 Saturn 2.2 ls1

What you've been told is partially true to the extent that the engine block part number for M.Y. 2000 is different from those in the '01 through '04 L-Series cars. However, if you look closely at the...
