Water pump bolts

03 v6. Why on earth is the water pump bolt pattern not symmetrical? There is no weep hole to orient. I changed mine for odd overheating issues and the new one leaks. I am positive the gasket surface...

Re: Steering rattle

I never looked at my sisters equinox to try and resolve it. Now that we own it, I am looking at it. My kid is driving it and she lives elsewhere. I have replaced a steering shaft on a prior equinox....

Re: Crank, no start to locked up?

I know the 2010 ecotec motors are $2k used. They fail so often the motors are gold used. Iím not so sure a 2006-2008 vue ecotec is $250 used. Maybe so.

Re: Crank, no start to locked up?

A physically damaged plug electrode is due to something hitting it. They donít deform otherwise. Not being able to rotate motor now is further evidence of something amiss. You need a borescope.

Re: 2010 Vue 3.6 V6 Head Gasket Job

The 3.6 has a very detailed timing chain install procedure. On an engine stand with full access it is hard. In the engine bay? Even more challenging. You will hate removing the rear exh manifold on...

Re: 2010 Vue 3.6 V6 Head Gasket Job

Very hard to remove timing cover in car since gap between motor and frame rail is tiny. It can be done. Get some quotes from a shop. That will tell you how much labor/hours is. You are not just doing...

Re: 2010 Vue 3.6 V6 Head Gasket Job

Well, this will give you chance to replace timing chains and guides. Which is common issue on 3.6 motor. Standard procedure is drop motor to replace chains. Add headgaskets? Oof. Lousy job.

Re: Is there a new owner or returning owner check list?

Yea, crazy timing belt. Who designed this thing? Your friend has record of timing belt service? Your daughter like driving suv? Not exactly kid cool.

Re: Spark plugs, spark plugs, spark plugs...

I had delco +4 plugs in my 03 v6. I put in Ngk dbl platinums last summer along with new coils. Both of the coil bodies were cracked and I had a misfire during wet conditions. Seems to run ok now.

Re: Surprise, RDM issues, need input

You removed rdm and put one back? I think you should take it out again and see what happens.
