Re: VUE is at GM dealer. 6T70 Transmission 3-5 wave plate on it's way out.

Should be covered under the 100k powertrain. We were at 127k. It's supposed to be done today. About $2600 for the wave plate and clutch (but since it's an automatic, I'm not sure about the clutch...

Re: VUE is at GM dealer. 6T70 Transmission 3-5 wave plate on it's way out.

Dropped it off with an appointment this morning. They didn't get to it until just before closing time. They agreed there was an issue but since we didn't run it until we got a CEL they say they need...

Re: VUE is at GM dealer. 6T70 Transmission 3-5 wave plate on it's way out.

I have a feeling we'll be looking at the same thing. The wife told me about it Sunday morning on the way to church. It's surging at shifts. Unfortunately we're out of warranty with 127k on it. ...

Re: 12 DTC after impact

Checked all of the underhood fuses. None bad. Haven't checked the fuse box inside the car. Guess I don't need to chase it down as the shop supposedly has it covered.

I know one thing from the...

Re: 12 DTC after impact

I'll take a look at those. She left the shop and said the estimate was $4200. Ouch. Thank god for insurance and that she is ok. Guy said something about the a/c condensor or compressor I guess...

Re: 12 DTC after impact

If I remember correctly it was P0030,36,50,56,102,480 and 481. Still the cooling fan ones. She's meeting the adjuster at noon at the body shop which is only a couple miles from our house. Still...

Re: 12 DTC after impact

Cleared the codes this morning after verifying the cooling fans spun freely by hand. Fired it up and the 12 returned to pending codes. Shut it down and restarted. CEL came back on with 7 of the codes...

Re: 12 DTC after impact

I have a code reader. I wasn't sure if I should clear them before the adjuster/body shop got their hands on it. The fans are on the back of the radiator and nothing was pushed back into the...

12 DTC after impact

Well the wife had a little fender bender tonight in her 2008 Vue XR. Hood, grille, bumper cover, bumper support, maybe radiator support. No leaking fluids and hood opens. But now she has a dozen...

Re: Spark Plug Change Time

Our plugs still looked ok but for the price I like the reassurance.

If I remember its only the oil filler cap and a blind stud that holds the plastic cover on.

Re: Front Struts for 2008 VUE? Dealer only item?

Pretty sure rockauto sells them too. Looked into them a while back but they were pricey if I remember.

Re: Spark Plug Change Time

Changed them today. Not too bad of a job. The back ones look daunting but they aren't too bad to get at. I used champion iridium (I think.) They were listed as OEM replacements on Rockauto. If...

Re: transmission fluid change

Pulled the front cover off. Well as off as I could get it. It's not easy to get at. I had to pull the battery and battery tray out. I got out about 5 quarts of fluid. It was a little dark, not burnt...

Spark Plug Change Time

It's time to do some maintenance as the wife's 08 Vue XR is nearing 100k miles. Did the oil last night. I'm looking into a transmission fluid change. (Looks like about $75-$80) just for fluid. ...

The wife's 08 xr is nearing the 100,000 mile mark. Did the oil last night. I need to look into doing the transmission. I've done it in several other vehicles but they all had a pan or at least a...

Re: My best fuel economy so far

I wish we could get that kind of mileage. I know when I drive it, I get in the low 20's. My wife is a little more subdue-ed and gets about 24. Our speed limit is also 70 and we may push that a...

Re: Update on rattling/clunking noise front end

I'm not so worried about the time. I'm hoping these pop off easily. How bad were your's when you replaced them? I can't feel the slop in them. Even when on jack stands and taking the weight off...

Re: Update on rattling/clunking noise front end

getting them on/off isn't a problem. I used to have to grind/cut off the ones on my mazda. We took it again. I'm sure it's both of them. Sounds just like it's sway bar links. I'm saddened by the...

Re: Update on rattling/clunking noise front end

I'm betting my wife's 08 has a bad sway bar end link as well. I'm relatively familiar with the noise as my Mazda would go through a set in about 30k. However for it they were cheap and I could do...
