Re: 2000 LW2 3.0l Expansion Tank

I'm not familiar with the purpose of the other hose is which connects to the radiator. I would not recommend bypassing that hose as it's clear that the engineers determined it was needed. I am...

Re: LW 200 rear brake spring

Okay. Here's the thread that really got things going for those of us who made the change. Plenty of good information in it (even some from me! :D) - 5 pages worth.

Re: 2000 LW2 3.0l Expansion Tank

If the mounting/bracketing of the tank is identical between for each engine then it would be possible to utilize the the recovery tank for a V6 with a four cylinder engine by merely capping of the...

Re: Will Saturns be classic cars?

Will Saturn's be seen as classic/collectible cars? That's a tough question to answer and, of course, any reply would guessing at best. I suppose the best way to ascertain what might occur with this...

Re: 2000 LW2 3.0l Expansion Tank

No.

A careful examination of both diagrams provided is clear enough. The third port on the tank is absolutely necessary for the V6's cooling system, but it's not for that of the 2.2L engine. Find...

Re: 2002 L200 Sedan Diverter Valve Melted, Exhaust Issue?

Any oil leak would naturally result in adding more oil between oil changes than might otherwise be necessary. Once the oil leak is corrected you will have a more accurate understanding of how much...

Re: 2002 L200 Sedan Diverter Valve Melted, Exhaust Issue?

Re: Sub Frame LS2, 2000

Do not remove the engine from the mounts mentioned previously in post #s 17 and 20. It is unnecessary.

In this instance an engine hoist or engine support bar will be used to keep the engine and...

Re: front end torque specifications

According to the FSM, not only are the sub-frame bolts supposed to be replaced after they've been removed according to the FSM, the cage nuts are also to be replaced. Firstly,...

Re: Lazy Seatbelt Retractor

Hmm...Looking at post #3 it would appear that Junkfood revived an otherwise inactive thread. If the information added is good then it's always useful.

Re: No start 2004 L 300

I'm stronly leaning in your direction here also, although I'd be happy if the belt turned out not to be broken. FWIW, on my wife's '04 Acura MDX with a 3.5L belt driven V6, Honda/Acura recommend 105K...

Re: Sub Frame LS2, 2000

Kudos to you, sir, for reminding us of this. Whether using a hoist or an engine support bar there is no need to fully disengage the engine from those two mounts: 1) at the front of the engine...

Re: Sub Frame LS2, 2000, Cleaning and Preparing Sub Frame

Remove as much rust as you possibly can. Then paint it with the strongest type of paint available. (As for what's best, I'd just ask around at a paint store.) If it were me I think I'd give it three...

Re: BCM change over

The system's security, PASSLOCK, doesn't recognize this BCM hence the security warning light illumination and a vehicle which won't start. A 30 minute re-learn procedure is required and has been...

Re: Wheel cover?

Sure, as long as the cover does not rest too tightly over the wheels' center where the lug bolts are then there should be no problem using those wheel covers.

Actually, he's not. Hub caps only...

Re: Sub Frame LS2, 2000

As long as the sub-frame came from an L-Series car with an automatic transmission (regardless of the engine paired with it) then you have the correct part.
I could not agree more. I have the...

Re: 21 years old!

Since the member is in Canada, there's a remote possibility for it to be a 2002 Astra if it was a VAUXHALL model.
