Re: 2006 Vue V6 blower fan problem

Switch is part of the knob. Start by pulling the control panel and unplugging the blower switch to see if its fried.

Re: 2006 Vue V6 blower fan problem

Once you get at the panel and unplug the switch etc it will be obvious if itís burnt up and fried.

Re: Cyl 1 spark plug hole filling with oil.???

Yes, that's no uncommon. One common cause of leaks is the plastic valve cover warping. Go down to the junk yard and grab an aluminum cover from an older DOHC. Take the bolts too.

Re: Passenger Side CV axle C-clip

I believe this is GM 07829495 which isn't available any longer. I've not seen anyone sell them without the axle. J/y may be a good option but honestly I'd probably just try to drive it in. I've had...

Re: Manual to power steering swap? JY SC2 suspension? Straightforward?

Re: Car sat for 6 months....precautions before start?

Just like on a thatís been siting boat, turn the engine over by hand before using the starter. If a ring is stuck on a cylinder you want to loosen it softly.

Re: Timing or belt tensioner noise

GM even has a bulletin that leaking out the weep hole is normal and you should not replace the pump. Keeps the pumps running until the warranty runs out.

Re: A/C Compressor - Oil or Coolant Leak

You can just give it some gas occasionally when stopped. Problem solved.

I wouldnít make any statements if you are low on refrigerant without seeing gauge values.

Re: Should I be worried?

yes, if the wheel doesn't obstruct your ability to work. Make sure that each side raised as backups so it doesn't fall on you.

Re: Should I be worried?

Yea, never get under a car when its held by a jack. Always have at least one stand and a jack ready to catch it or two stands.

Re: Should I be worried?

The oil pressure light is on? Thatís bad.
Is there oil in the engine?
Hopefully the connector on the pressure switch is just disconnected.

Re: Should I be worried?

Oil is not affected by the belt. The belt does turn the water pump so hopefully they didnít overheat the engine.

Re: 02 SL2 Stalling

No, not cam sensing. Crank sensor.

Intermittent issues are a pain. If you catch it while itís happenjng you could check for short of the crank sensor.

I wonder if you could have a bad crank sensor that only manifests when hot.
