Re: 04 Vue 3.5 won't crank turnover

Thanks very much for posting your approach. I used the same, and it worked nicely. One thing that threw me, was the placement of the rear battery tray bolt - it's BEHIND the front bracket for the...

Re: Honda VUE torque converter clutch

Oliver -

Re: Cincinnati Area Mechanic/Saturn Parts & Repair

Re: anyone around indiana use these guys?

I just got a timing chain cover for a Saturn SL1 from Mr Wrench, and the price was fair. They repair and sell parts for many Saturns. The two mechanics there have over 20 years experience working...

Re: Larger Transmission Pan / Tranny Cooler

I just installed this cooler. It fit leaning diagonally in front of the A/C radiator, at the top of the bumper - so air can still get around it (somewhat), rather than transmitting its full heat to...

P0717 Vue 3.5L Auto trans speed sensor location w/photos

For some reason, the P0717 trouble code doesn't seem to be documented too well here on Saturnfans, so I'm contributing to help solve that.

My wife's 2004 Vue generated this code and the...

Re: replaced my a/c pulley bearing

As a public service, I'm quoting your entire procedure with fixed links to the photos. Your links didn't point to the photos, but to the PAGE the photo was on, so that's what I fixed. Enjoy.

Re: really bad belt squeal. please help

One way to approach this is to just squirt some oil (while engine is off) at the moving parts, one by one, to see if the squeal is changed. I did this to mine this morning, and found that the A/C...

I put some 15" wheels on my SL1, and it made an incredible difference in cornering, as well as improving the stance of the car.

Re: Short Ram Intake Installed

Doesn't that mean it was running rich or missing once in a while? Mine does that with all stock parts. But if the oxygen sensor knows it's rich and doesn't adjust, adding more air will just result...

Re: Is synthetic worth it?

Now there are some synthetics that claim 10,000 between oil changes. If true, the non-synth oils recommending every 3,000 miles would have to be 1/3 or less the price of synth's to be worthwhile.

Re: Mobil1 Synthetic vs. Extended Performance

When I bought my SL1 with 101K miles, I was impressed at how smooth the engine ran. It's like it's barely broken in. I changed oil once and used regular oil, but really want to preserve the engine,...

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

I'll 2nd the Fosgate Punches. I read elsewhere that the bass tends to be a little weak in the Saturn S-series, and put these in - absolutely fabulous.

Re: Long Term Warm Air Intake Problems?

In colder climates, does the hot air intake result in the engine dropping its idle faster, due to intake air temp sensor thinking it's warmer out?
