Re: L200 Radiator Fan Not Turning On

My FSMs are in four plastic bound covers, each around three inches thick. No 'real' schematics, just what you see in my previous post. Since dealer mechanics are not expected to have electrical or...

Re: 2004 Vue - 2.2 Manual - Reduced Engine Power

internetpimp, if you become familiar with this site and search threads, you'll find Saturns using Passlock (yours) can use donor BCMs or ECMs without dealer programming. The modules are plug n' play...

Re: I had to cut brake line at caliper hose...

Re: 2003 Saturn ion pcv

Well I'm glad to be wrong on a very healthy engine at or near ideal compression. What remains is normal combustion blowby gases that are still generated as a normal process. Unfortunately, unless you...

Re: 2003 Saturn ion pcv

Re: Strange no crank issue 2004 Vue 2.2 MT

Re: Would you change your 2001 SL1 for 2007 Jaguar S-Type?

Re: Would you change your 2001 SL1 for 2007 Jaguar S-Type?
