Can't get into my Vue

I parked it such that the drivers side is inches from the side of a building so there would be more room on the other side, and then crawled out the passenger side. Also removed the battery and...

Re: Current Up/Down Nature of the Site

Maybe posting in another site like FB that the forum is down would alleviate the mystery.

Re: How to stand on the roof?

I got a ladder but not comfortable stepping off it to get on the roof 8 or 9 feet off the ground. On top of the Vue it's only 2 or 3 feet higher.

How to stand on the roof?

I want to stand on my Vue's roof so I can climb onto a garage roof. Off course I don't want to step directly on the roof which would dent it, so I'm thinking of laying some boards down side to side...

Re: Car Rattling Sound - Cold Engine - In Park (Saturn Vue 2007 3.5L V6 AWD)

Go underneath and check the metal heat shields around the exhaust system.

Re: Spark plug oiled

As long as it's not missing and throwing engine codes, don't worry about it.

Re: Any way to verify that a timing belt has been changed on the Honda V6?

I always take a dated picture after replacing the belt. Leaves no doubt.

Re: Camshaft position sensor

Unless the part is cheap and easy to get to, throwing parts at a problem is just a roll of the dice. You need to diagnose the issue first.

Re: Oil Explosion under hood with overheating

If you don't know when the water pump was changed you don't know when the timing belt was changed. And with 185,000 miles you're driving a ticking time bomb.

Re: New Vue Owner, looking for advice on struts and other stuff

Numerous posts about people using quick struts and then the ride height being off. Or maybe that was for the Redlines? I don't remember, but the springs should last a long time so no need to replace...

Re: CVT trouble leads to Vue not starting

Can you at least get the timing chain at the correct position to check compression? Or is it just as much work to replace it?

Re: Will Saturns be classic cars?

Try and find a Chevette or Yugo under $1000 or even under $2k if nice. 20 years ago they were $100 cars.

Re: Dragging Passenger Caliper?

You could drive it again until the caliper starts sticking. Then crack open the bleeder screw and see if that frees it up. If so, it's probably the hose.

Re: Another quality new four seasons compressor :(

The Portuguese make good stuff. I'd say it's on par with Germany and most other EU countries.

The OEM AC Delco should be made in North America.

Re: Serpetine replacement on 08 3.5

No idea what K6 1093 is but if you ordered a belt for a 3.5L engine, it won't fit since 08 has the GM 3.6L engine.

Re: Another quality new four seasons compressor :(

AC Delco. Sure they are about twice the price of a Chinese compressor but what is your time worth to do this again?
