Re: 03 Ion 2 - Possible to do a DIY Auto Transmission Flush?

If you can afford it, I'd recommend a true "flush", whereby a machine is hooked into the transmission oil cooler lines and new fluid pumped into the tranny while all the old fluid is removed. That...

It's OK to bash him. He said to try the additive in the Aisin that he put in his VTi.
"So to start with i would try the additive, i think i paid 25$ Canadian for this magic additive."

Re: Trade In

I didn't see any hint of a joke in your response, so all I'll say is cut the guy some slack. If you were sick and had 3 years to live would you want somebody sarcastically critiquing your spelling? ...

Re: Ecotec engine

Much easier to swap out an aircraft engine than a car engine, especially a Lycoming in a 172.
Again, just because you think you know everything about a Lycoming piston engine, which maybe you do,...

Re: Saturn Deal Could be "Smartest Automotive Move of the Decade"

If that's the case he won't want any Canadian Saturn dealers. The reason being is that Mercedes has the rights to the Smart car in Canada, not Penske.

Re: USA Today: Penske-Saturn Deal Could Change How Cars are Sold

I'm all for low cost, but the key is reliability.
Does N. America cave in to cheap foreign labor and stop manufacturing altogether, or do we cut corners to keep our blue collar workers employed? I...

Re: The time on my radio keeps falling behind

I predict they won't do anything. They'll probably write it up as "can't duplicate problem".
However I've been wrong before. Maybe they'll be in a better mood what with the Penske thing, and they'll...

Re: The time on my radio keeps falling behind

"digital watches will lose time with improper voltage"

Wrong! They will just stop working when the voltage falls below a critical level. They don't lose time. Read up on how a digital timer works.

Oh boy, here we go again. Wall clocks use an analog movement driven by a quartz crystal. They are MECHANICAL. Digital clocks use a 555 IC timer. They either run at their clock frequency, or they...

Re: Thank You for Helping Save Saturn

What's saved besides the name? The cars are still GM for two years, and after that? The only saving I would get excited about is back to cheap reliable cars with polymer panels. Anything else is not...

Re: The time on my radio keeps falling behind

The radio, stereo, and clock units are bottom of the line crap that are spec'd for the lowest cost. Battery voltage has nothing to do with this. Keep resetting your clock every few weeks, or think...

Re: Opel in Canada?

Should make for some very interesting purchasing options. However, for the next 2 years, it appears that Saturn will be selling the same old rebadged GM stuff that nobody has been buying lately. The...

Re: General Motors, Penske Outline Proposed Deal for Purchase of Saturn

Does Penske plan to sell only Saturn badged GM's for the next 2 years? If so, that's a terrific business plan. Saturn sales have tanked, but he'll keep selling the same old GM crap rebadged as...

Re: NJ Retailer Temporarily Allowed to Sell Saturns Alongside Another Brand

Good for him. That's proactive thinking. Better to be prepared with a big lifeboat as the mother ship slowly sinks into the depths of automotive history.

Bankruptcy Monday means end of Saturn Monday?

My prediction: GM walks away from all franchise obligations. The "new" GM aligns with only those Chev, Pontiac, Buick, Cadillac, and GMC dealers it chooses. Hummer and Saturn get dissolved...

All the 5 different Ecotec's I've ever worked on , from 2002 to 2009, be they 2.2 or 2.4L, have all called for between 4.7L and 5L of oil when doing an oil change with new filter install. Where'd you...
