Re: Tire Pressure correct PSI

Whenever I see a thread about motor oil, tires, or tire pressure I expect the replies to be very entertaining.

This thread did not disappoint.

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

Thanks for the reply.

I'm going back in next weekend to check the retention nut torque values on the idler and tension pulleys. I'll check the timing at the same time.

The CPS has never been replaced. After reading all the posts about CPS issues I keep wondering when mine will fail. It would be a most wonderful coincidence if if finally...

And it looks like I'm missing an edit button for this post so I can correct some grammar issues in the title.

Re: vue stalled. than restarted

In the event that you end up circling back to the TB connector check out my thread from last month. The codes don't exactly match but the symptoms sound real similar.

Re: Water pump gasket

IIRR the water pump gasket wasn't all that tight when it fit into the recess provided in the engine block. Just tight enough to keep it where it needed to be when putting on the new pump.

Re: LW200 Shift issue P0122 & P0108 codes

If I had those two codes and shifting issues I would look at the MAP 1st. When my MAP went out about 10 years ago I had some really hard shifts between 3rd and 4th gear.

Nothing as bad as you...

Re: 2003 Vue 3.0 AC Compressor Leak

I knew that the O2 sensor could put up a fight. I just hope that clean living and no exposure to salty winters will help. Probably not. Did you use a welding torch or a simple butane torch to heat...

Re: 2003 Vue 3.0 AC Compressor Leak

Re: Smoke emits from Turn Signal Stalk when High Beams Flashed

The 2000 L series vehicles had the same issue. Replacing the multi-function switch was easy, and less than $30 when I did it back in 2005. I'd do it sooner rather than later because if you let it go...
