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: Sub Frame LS2, 2000

Forgive me if it seems that I'm being a pest (I don't want to be one), 02 LW300, but I'd like to know your answer to my question from post #20.

Re: front end torque specifications

I'll chime in here...
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.

Re: Evap code:P0442

If it is at all possible for you to do so then I'd heartily suggest doing your own visual inspection of the fuel tank filler pipe assembly prior to the smoker test. Knowing that you're in a state...

Re: LW subwoofer hookup?

1) the requisite wiring from the donor vehicle - from the CD/Cassette/Radio all the way to the rear of the car - and
2) the factory...

Re: How to remove Saturn Trunk Clips?

Re: Potential Saturn Owner from Ky

Welcome to SaturnFans, Mrbrucie! While I'm not an S-Series owner, I think you've got a good find with that car. I'd suggest re-posting the message within one of the S-Series forums as you're likely...

Great! Which state is this part coming from? Were you able to see pictures of the engine cradle before ordering it?

Re: P0420 - Ion High in the Sky?

While I'm not an ION owner my car does have the same 2.2L engine in it. Does this tapping sound appear at any other time apart from start up? Does it happen only at the first start up of the day or...

Re: Car will not start after seats removed, help?

fdryer's advice is sound. If the jump start is performed through a direct connection to your ION's battery and it's very weak then that battery "acts" as a resistor because it is taking electrical...
