Re: Front end play normal?

I realize also when I wedge a pry bar between the rack and subframe, I notice some minor play. Could it also be the rack bushing?

Re: 2008 Saturn Astra XR Coupe! Loaded $1950, Canada

I actually dropped it to $1950 asis with etest. I want to hopefully get rid of it before registration expires. I have received a few lowball offers, but most arent serious.

Re: Jumping idle on astra?

Apparently I talked to a mechanic about it and he says its the pcv valve built into the valve cover. He said if your engine runs rough when you pull out the oil cap, its a bad pcv. I've confirmed its...

Abnormal Fuel Pump Noise?

Is this normal in this car? I have heard it since buying the car last year.

Its like a noticeable whirring sound.

Re: Signal Lever Switch Problems

The switch is easy to remove. There is a groove you can slide a 1.5mm hex into and it disengages the tab. I just figured out how it was done yesterday. I tried two levers, and still have the same...

Re: P0420 Power Catalyst System Efficiency below threshold (Bank 1)

Check for leaks and o2 sensors. More than likely a bad cat. If you dont want to pay an arm and leg to clear the code if it is the cat, use a spark plug fouler on the downstream sensor. It will make...
