Re: Engine died, seeking advice.

I realized the document referenced in that thread is no longer available, nor do I have access to the Gmail account I shared it out with, so I've created a new link and posted in the camshaft thread.

Re: Shift boot replacement question

Yeah, any looseness in that plastic frame and it throws it out of whack. All good now.

Re: Door Lock Failure

If your airbag light was illuminated, I would suggest checking the connection back to the door release button back on the dash, but sounds like you addressed it.

My car does not have a fuel door...

Re: Shift boot replacement question

As an FYI, I noticed the shifting was a bit off after replacing the boot. I took the trim plate back off and noticed that the black plastic frame which handles the reverse lockout was loose. I don't...

Re: Shift boot replacement question

Thanks. Yes, dealing with the lock ring was the biggest PITA part of the process. Stupid design.

I never got the original one so they sent me another, but if it magically shows up I'll see if...

Re: Shift boot replacement question

Wound up replacing this today. Pretty straightforward, the only issue was trying to get the replacement boot to tuck back in between the outer chrome trim ring and the inner white lock ring, since...

Re: Valve Cover Gasket

Exhaust work can always be a challenge. Using penetrating oil a few days in advance is a good approach. Good luck.

Re: Shift boot replacement question

So the second boot showed up today, three weeks after the first lost one got replaced. Not sure where the holdup was, but at least it got here.

Before I dive in, what's the best way to remove the...

Re: Valve Cover Gasket

I replaced my exhaust manifold/cat combo a couple of years back. The vehicle had 164K miles on it at the time, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easily both the stud mounting nuts and exhaust...

Re: Replacement batteries available?

I purchased an AC Delco 91PS back in Nov. 2017. 600CCA, still starts no problem, 4 1/2 years later.

It was $108 then, I see they are up in the $150 range now. Yikes.

Re: P0171 code, yet long term fuel trim indicate car is running rich

Makes two of us. Fortunately, this car is not my DD, but I still use it on occasion, mostly to take trips with my dogs or go biking, so I need to get it squared away at some point.

Thank you. I did replace the solenoid, but no luck.

Re: Shift boot replacement question

Well, thanks for checking around. I guess I'll wait to hear back from the seller as to whether it will be a battle to have another shipped before I order from somewhere else.

Will do. I could track down the original part number it would help.

Re: Saturn Astra Parts

I would start by determining which part numbers you need. Even if they show as discontinued, you can perhaps find them on eBay or elsewhere.

Re: P0171 code, yet long term fuel trim indicate car is running rich

Well, still no luck. I ordered an ECM unit from Flagship One, which took about a week to get it programmed and delivered, total cost of $425.

After installing it, the key learning process would...

Re: Shift boot replacement question

I gave the tracking info to my regular letter carrier, who checked but they don't have it at their facility, and he couldn't really tell me where it is. What a PITA.

I guess I'll have to either...

That's the same one I went with, decided to keep it stock appearing. He does have some pretty cool designs on the others tho.
