Re: 2005 L300 purchase advice

The 4 cylinder "L-61" 2.2 liter engine has been more reliable overall than the 6 cylinder, but there was a recall for defective timing chains. The chain and guides should be replaced if it is noisy...

There is a metal crossover pipe that runs from the water pump on the "front" of the engine (the end where the belt is) to the "rear" where the thermostat housing. This pipe goes under the exhaust...

Re: Turn signals don't turn off - 2000 LS2

I checked our HTA in Ontario and you don't even need to have turn signals at all if the vehicle is less than 2.05 m x 6.10 m, or most cars, SUV's and light trucks. You are still required to signal...

Re: Oil Pan Gasket?

While you have the pan off, clean it off and inspect it carefully for cracks. I had a hairline fracture that leaked. The fracture appeared to be from something hitting the oil pan. You could not see...

Re: Turn signals don't turn off - 2000 LS2

I have experienced this problem. The turn signals are cancelled by a lug on the steering shaft that is part of the clock spring assembly. The problem starts when the turn signal switch mechanism gets...

Re: 2002 L300 Left Instrument Fuse Block Panel

Wasn't the DVD only offered on the wagon (LW300)?

Re: Airbag Removal 2001 L200

I feel your pain. While I have done this once in the past, it is very difficult and a PITA. The latches are spring wires that run vertically (wheel straight). When you turn it a quarter turn to...

Re: 2002 LW200 soft ABS brake issue.

I would add that ALL the brake fluid in the system needs to be bled out at the wheel bleeders on a regular schedule. When I was doing "High Performance Driving Schools" (track days with instructors)...

Re: Engine change 2000 LW1

I have kept my L for 12 years and I still like the car. But my wife has strongly indicated that she thinks it is too old and lobbied for replacement. I have purchased a 2008 Saab 9-3 2.0 liter I-4...

Re: Is this the infamous BCM??

For a new poster you get a gold star for your research and diagnostic methods. That module is exclusive to the MT without ABS, so I am guessing it isn't available as a new spare part. So used is the...

Re: 2005 L300 Wiper control

It sounds like you may have a problem with the wiper motor. There are separate contacts inside the gear box for run and park. I had a problem 8 years ago with the park contact -...

Re: Cruise Control

The cruise switch sometimes needs to be adjusted. It has a plunger that the pedal arm rest on when in the released (brakes off) position. This is done by pressing down on the pedal, then pulling out...

Re: Evap system purgatory

Re: 2002 L200 custom shifter help

Unfortunately, the shift knob appears to be permanently attached to the lever. If you don't like the appearance of the standard knob maybe you could make a small cover of leather or fur or ???.

Re: Engine change 2000 LW1

Re- the crankshaft bolt, just re-use it. It is very long and can stretch a bit more when tightened the extra XX degrees. That's what I did. On the torque converter, that would be more difficult. I...

Re: door panel

You have not stated whether it is the inner or outer door panel you want to remove. There are posts above for both. It is customary to refer to the inner or interior door panel as the "door card"....

Re: Engine change 2000 LW1

My "new" engine came out of a car being parted out by an area mechanic. I found it on Kijijji for C$400. The mechanic told me it was being retired because it needed a BCM and the owner didn't want to...

Re: Engine change 2000 LW1

If you search this forum you will find that I did an engine change on my LS1 a few years ago. You can do it from the top. I changed it because it had developed a rod knock. The replacement engine has...

Re: Engine change 2000 LW1

The facts that the TC let go just as you were cranking it to start and that there appears to no damage to the valves or pistons combine to mean that you MAY have dodged the bullet, and could just...

The symptoms match one of the electric in-tank fuel pump failures I have experienced on a car long in the past.

Re: 2001 LW200 wont start....

What about the connection of the wire from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid? There is also the neutral safety switch to look at. I assume you have checked the fuses!

Re: 2002 L200 Engine Cradle Question

Re: 2000 LW2 stuck in park and other issues

I wonder if the problem is with the shift interlock solenoid. Lack of use can cause things to get sticky. The ticking may be related to this as well.

Re: Power Steering only working with Strong Arm Power

The dirty fluid could be an effect or a cause of the pump failure. Your pump wore out. Dirt makes pumps wear. Wear product = dirt. Try to get as much of the dirty fluid out of the system by repeating...
