Re: Exhaust manifold has a crack in it what's the best way to go about replacing this

To my knowledge thereís one with an EGR tube in it. I think thatís it. Also, I believe, (Iím not 100% sure) but you can use an LSJ manifold in its place. If your getting a direct replacement, just...

Re: Assistance needed for L61 replacement options.

Re: Buy it or forget about it?! Please help me decide

Personally, I wouldn’t. Rust/rot plus other brake issues can quickly surpass the value of the car. Add in it’s got an AWD CVT, no freaking way.

Re: Assistance needed for L61 replacement options.

If you have a 49 state car, you don't have the air valve,check to see if you have an EGR valve on the side of the cylinder head. Odds are you go with option 4. That's the most common.

Re: 2005 Vue 2.2l Won't start, not communicating with OBD to get errors

This sounds like two separate issues.

Does it fire at all and shut off?
Does the Passlock light come on?
The BCM controls all that stuff and can cause the car to do all sorts of weird things,...

No one ever checks the For Sale Section, in fact, there haven't been any posts there in over a year.

Long story short, the knob needs to be cut off.

The rubber on the knob is molded into a hard delrin plastic and that plastic is molded onto the metal rod. Get a cutoff wheel and cut it below the...

Re: Lo Idle AC mystery solved.

I completely understand that. I was just asking if removing the back plate off of the compressor opens the AC system.

I've attached a picture of the compressor with the panel I'm speaking about.

Re: Clutch Master Cylinder Rod Break?

I had considered that, however, I can get the cylinder for free under warranty. I'm just going to swap it. Hopefully it's not a massive undertaking as I'm going to swap just the cylinder.

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,...

If the sensor is ok and the surround is broken, I'd try to fab up something either out of a flat washer(s) and paint them black.

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.
