Re: Engine head replacement 07 ion 2.2

The positive side of this is a great budget rebuild. Unfortunately, running at idle places zero load on the engine. Once loads are engaged, driving, expert engine rebuilders with extensive...

Re: Engine head replacement 07 ion 2.2

The noise may be from the bottom end, maybe connecting rod bearings. When the valves met pistons with skinny valve stems bending, the shock is sent everywhere. Con rods can bend/break, wrist pins may...

Re: Issues with camber for circle track

The combination strut length and the wheel hub bracket may be contributing to higher negative camber. Other than camber bolts for fine tuning, have you considered slotting the upper bracket mounting...

Re: 07 2.2 ecotech crankshaft

I think you were sent an incorrect crankshaft. Using rockauto parts images, your '07 uses an Enginetech part #104550 with what appears to be a missing reluctor wheel in the image. The view from the...

Re: '09 Aura No Crank, No Click, No Start

You might take solace from my personal experience. I parked at a local Target store about a mile away awhile back. When I came back from shopping, my wagon wouldn't start, no sounds from the starter....

In every timing setup of 4-stroke engines, cylinder #1 is used for TDC when both intake and exhaust valves are closed. With 4-stroke engines, two full revolutions (720 degrees) of the crankshaft is...

Re: '09 Aura No Crank, No Click, No Start

Did you try swapping relays to eliminate relay failure? Wack the starter with a broom stick a few times? If this gets the starter to crank the engine, you can drive home or to your chosen repair shop.

Re: '09 Aura No Crank, No Click, No Start

Actually, if you're brave and willing to crawl under the engine to find the starter, you don't need a second person. You're effectively starting the engine under the car by shorting the two terminals...

Re: '09 Aura No Crank, No Click, No Start

Re: 1997 SW2 Crank but no start, stuck on wiring.

This seems to point to a faulty pcm. A new crank sensor didn't change anything.

Re: ABS/TCS/ESC needed for inspection?

Re: Mixing orange and green antifreeze

Are you sure dexcool softens plastic? Radiator hoses and plastic coolant tanks as well as some radiators have plastic side tanks (Ions). If I'm not mistaken, early use of dexcool caused head gasket...

Re: ABS trouble with codes

Re: Engine head replacement 07 ion 2.2

Someone else can answer your question about the valve lifters.

If you had found and mentioned bent valves, I think everyone would have simply said the cylinder head is most likely toast because...

Re: no-start issue; fuel prime/bleed?

If AutoZone is nearby, check if they have a (working) fuel pressure gauge for loan out.

Re: L200 RPM Surge with A/C

I wonder if the dead battery wasn't the contributor to these problems and chasing problems was the result. As you know, our cars, trucks and suvs have more electronics relying on the alternator after...
