Re: Wasp nest in sideview mirror

If it were me, I would look for an outdoor sprayable liquid insecticide which was designed to kill wasps, or for wasp nests. Of course, be sure you're properly covered when you do this and that your...

Re: '03 Saturn retirement planning stage

I can certainly appreciate the situation. It's something which is in my thoughts about my own car from time to time. As much as I like my LS1, some day it will become clear that it can no longer be...

Re: Suspension Noise?

FWIW, I am inclined to agree with 02 LW300. If you should choose not to purchase a complete strut assembly, I highly encourage you to use only the AC Delco front strut mounts. At least two other...

Re: Balance chain sprockets

It's the same problem I had.

True! :yes: That is the easy part. Apparently the reason why the FSM does not show removal of the balance shafts during an "in car" service is the lack of space...

Re: Balance chain sprockets

According to the FSM the only way to replace the balance shaft sprockets is when the engine is pulled out of the engine compartment. Any other manner under which this replacement takes place,...

Re: Single clunk when accelerating from full stop

Yikes - a portion of your front transmission mount body broke - that's wild! As best I can recall I believe that I removed the cooling fan assembly behind the radiator to give me more space to work...

Re: Mileage dropped off a cliff...

I have had my fuel economy drop to 19 MPG when I've used the a/c during city driving, and stop and go traffic on the freeways. It's a really depressing number to see!! When that has happened I...

Re: Single clunk when accelerating from full stop

^Hmm...any "magic move or trick?" Not that I can recall. The removal of the front and rear transmission mounts, along with the left engine mount are all rather straight forward. The only thing which...

Re: Single clunk when accelerating from full stop

1) The break typically occurs within the front mount's rubber section where it's attached to the sub-frame.

2) The right mount (at the front of the engine) is beneath the air cleaner box. It's...

Re: Single clunk when accelerating from full stop

Relative to a bad engine mount, the most likely one to fail first is the front transmission mount between the radiator and engine/transmission. A visual inspection can easily spot the breakage in...

A really bad flat tow story, or how to ruin your new Jeep Wrangler

This story just boggled my mind. IMO, it's a reminder that one should really read everything in automobile owner's handbook to avoid a fiasco such as the one described in the story below.

Re: Lw200 no turn signals...

As always, fdryer is correct in directing you to look for a blown fuse first. If the fuse is good then I'm curious about this: if you press the emergency flasher button do the turn signals light up...

Re: Suspension Noise?

It's very unlikely to be a wheel bearing issue. Wheel bearing failure is typically heard as a hum which rises or falls in pitch and volume as speed increases or decreases. The rear wheel bearings are...

Re: Moisture under coil pack

My 2000 L81 L Series FSM shows a spark plug gap range from .035" to .043." While those numbers may not apply to your engine, a .046" gap on a spark plug is too wide and can cause an engine miss. The...
