Re: Clutch Master Cylinder Rod Break?

Re: no start/new battery

If the BCM has failed the passlock light will flash and it will not start.

Most likely that's the cause of no start. Do the lights and other devices in the vehicle work? Interior lights, HVAC,...

Re: Good match for gray interior paint.

Re: 07 Vue with bad 2.2 Ecotec

06-07 should be the same out of a VUE/Cobalt/HHR etc. The head and block is the same, however intake, exhaust, compression ratio and a slew of everything else is probably different.

Re: Syncros or shift cable?

I'd also recommend putting a lubricant paste on any and all pivot joints. I used Permatex's grey brush on thick lube. I use it on the pivot balls and then I put the shifter into 2nd and lube both...
