Re: Swapping heater hose positions at core

Of all the cars I have owned my S-Series had this problem, it was solved by back flushing the heater core. What's in common? Dex-cool, may be worth a try.

Re: Rear brake drums seized

A steel wedge like this, Williams WG-3 3-Inch Set Up Wedge. I once cut a cast iron tub in half for removal, took about 2 wheels and 10 minutes. It is quite effective but you must be comfortable with...

Re: Rear brake drums seized

Myself I use a grinder with an .045 cutting wheel to cut-score one side then score towards the middle. A small steel wedge will split it apart in no time.
I have also cut off front rotors this way...

Re: Passenger assist handle

I am thinking you may have the side curtain airbags, which seems to have no handle, at least my 2007 is that way. I miss the handles also.

Re: 2006 Vue 3.5L v6 ignition wires

Unfortunately it may be more than adjustment, a leak down test will give you the answer. But the adjustment is your starting point.

Re: Check Engine Light and Several Codes

Something like GearWrench 80546 5/8-Inch x 6-Inch Swivel Spark Plug Socket makes changing the plugs fairly easy, worth every penny.

Re: not good

Kind of doubt one tooth would cause damage, a compression test would verify.

Re: 1996 saturn sw2 reverse slam when warm

The question now is who did you get the valve body from, rebuilds are not create equal and what type of fluid are you using.

Re: New valve body now no reverse!

For the price of that kit I would be in contact with carsaturn. You need to read that code, no reverse is usually the input nut.

The air is eliminated by the small hose going to the coolant reservoir, remove the cap and look inside to verify flow thru hose to reservoir.

Re: Ignore "Reverse Slam"

If that works for you it's anyone's guess how long, once it starts to clunk or slam it's only a matter of time before the input nut will loosen up. The less you use reverse the better.

Re: Starter replacement affected transmission??

I suppose that is a possibility, I believe the shift points are relearned after a power disruption, although it is seldom noticed unless solenoids or the valve body were changed.

Re: Starter replacement affected transmission??

Check your battery cables for proper connections, the trans is voltage sensitive. That would be the only thing in common, as I assume the battery was disconnected for the starter replacement.

Re: 02 sl2 security issue. No start

Seems like you have spark and fuel pressure, but no fuel being delivered. Maybe clogged injectors from the two year old gas? Or no signal to the injectors, I am not familiar with the security system...
