Re: L300 Rear Brakes Questions- no worries, hurt feelings or fs

Sadly, I've not been that impressed with the newer Cadillac body styles in the four door configuration. Perhaps they're too "over-stated" in their exterior styling and I prefer something a bit more...

Re: Better braking??

It appears that you might be able to swap out your rear drum brakes for rear disc brakes. There was an option for rear disc brakes with the ION 2. Based on what I saw at an OEM parts website there is...

Re: L300 Rear Brakes Questions

As one of those members who have done the conversion from rear drum brakes to rear disc brakes, I can say that the mounting of the rear calipers is really quite simple. Due to space limitations...

Re: L-Series Rough Terrain Upgrade

If you're going west out of the state for a rural area then it appears that you're headed toward California. I hope that you don't have to come here at this time since this state is run by fools.

Re: Wasp nest in sideview mirror

If it were me, I would look for an outdoor sprayable liquid insecticide which was designed to kill wasps, or for wasp nests. Of course, be sure you're properly covered when you do this and that your...

Re: '03 Saturn retirement planning stage

I can certainly appreciate the situation. It's something which is in my thoughts about my own car from time to time. As much as I like my LS1, some day it will become clear that it can no longer be...

Re: Suspension Noise?

FWIW, I am inclined to agree with 02 LW300. If you should choose not to purchase a complete strut assembly, I highly encourage you to use only the AC Delco front strut mounts. At least two other...

Re: Balance chain sprockets

It's the same problem I had.

True! :yes: That is the easy part. Apparently the reason why the FSM does not show removal of the balance shafts during an "in car" service is the lack of space...

Re: Balance chain sprockets

According to the FSM the only way to replace the balance shaft sprockets is when the engine is pulled out of the engine compartment. Any other manner under which this replacement takes place,...

Re: Single clunk when accelerating from full stop

Yikes - a portion of your front transmission mount body broke - that's wild! As best I can recall I believe that I removed the cooling fan assembly behind the radiator to give me more space to work...

Re: Mileage dropped off a cliff...

I have had my fuel economy drop to 19 MPG when I've used the a/c during city driving, and stop and go traffic on the freeways. It's a really depressing number to see!! When that has happened I...

Re: Single clunk when accelerating from full stop

Re: Single clunk when accelerating from full stop

1) The break typically occurs within the front mount's rubber section where it's attached to the sub-frame.

2) The right mount (at the front of the engine) is beneath the air cleaner box. It's...

Re: Single clunk when accelerating from full stop

Relative to a bad engine mount, the most likely one to fail first is the front transmission mount between the radiator and engine/transmission. A visual inspection can easily spot the breakage in...

Re: Lw200 no turn signals...

As always, fdryer is correct in directing you to look for a blown fuse first. If the fuse is good then I'm curious about this: if you press the emergency flasher button do the turn signals light up...
