I've had issues with my primary FOB button sticking...the unlock button will sometimes jam in the 'on' position. That will reduce battery life.

I'd pull it completely apart and check to see IC...

Re: 06 grinding/dragging noise

Yeah, I've had that problem...rain over time will rust the pad shims (pad retainer clips), so when you start in morning, one side of pad will drag until you use the brakes to loosen it up (allow pads...

Re: What is this super annoying piece on the driveshaft?

Can you move it so it is up against bearing housing?

Re: I hope the engine is not seized

That is, you have moved the flywheel with socket (full revolution), so the engine isn't seized, yet, the new starter isn't engaging the flywheel at it's new position?

Re: 235-60R17 Tires Kelly vs Firestone vs Goodyear?

Re: Parts rig

Well, if tires are in good shape, I'd buy and part car.
Once your done stripping it of good stuff, call a wrecker and they will take it for free (scrap metal).

Re: 2006 VUe with 2.2l and 4T45 Hydro - Transmission Filter and oil change

I think flushing transmission is snake oil, and bound to cause problems. The filter and magnetic strip ought to catch anything nasty.
Speaking of which, I was reminded by a friend who had his...

Re: Warped Rotors after 30,000 miles

Re: Warped Rotors after 30,000 miles

Fdryer - when I was looking at hardware for these rotors/pads, I saw some simple spring clips...not sure if they were applicable to our model of rotor.

Re: Warped Rotors after 30,000 miles

Good advice...I was thinking of doing a 'super clean' of calipers, and re-greasing. Yeah, long ago, I heard the back set, if not working properly, add to the load on the fronts, so I pull the drum...

Re: Warped Rotors after 30,000 miles

Well, so much for buying 'good' rotors (slotted premium).
One side (left) of rotor has this rough texture about an inch wide and it feels like the pads gouged an indentation in them. The other side...
