Re: High engine fan speed in cold weather...a brief story...

Re: Door Lock Reset

The information for programming the auto door lock/unlock feature IS IN the owner's handbook...very simple as described in the link. I followed that for setting it up on my car.

Re: Power Steering Seal

Re: Bcm

Answer: yes. Unlike the BCM from a wrecking yard, a BCM from a company such as RockAuto - or the dealer - is blank, or unprogrammed. Because of this the full "marrying" procedure has to be done by...

Re: Head Rest Removal

Removing the head rest: 1) lift the head rest pad as far up as it will go. 2) keeping the buttons depressed at the seat back through which the rods enter it, continue lifting the head rest assembly...

Re: the old mysterious sounds trick

rfisher, there's one more option for an intermittent noise while "rolling": a weak rear strut (shock absorber, if you like). The rod inside of the strut body may be moving in a side-to-side motion...

Re: Master Cylinder won't fit on Booster

Re: Dealer find

If this car still has wheels on it - or at least has exposed hubs - with a 5 lug pattern then it's an L-Series car. Frankly, I wouldn't mind picking up a parts car of this kind.

Re: L200 RPM Surge with A/C

With regard to a MAF Sensor, the ECOTEC 2.2L engine's emission system doesn't have one. I'm not sure what it was that you may have cleaned.

Re: Does a failing brake light switch cause more than one problem?

Go to the brake pedal and follow it upward until you see a small bar across the pedal arm with two black plunger contacts resting against it. That's where the two parts are.

Re: Does a failing brake light switch cause more than one problem?

This is usually the case for me as well. Yes. Yes, but it looks nothing like the old style switches. Look one up for your car at RockAuto.com and click on the "Info" button to see a picture of the...
