Re: Mysteriuos power steering leak.

Perhaps mine was an outlier. The snap ring that holds the end plate on the pump corroded away. The end plate popped out and that was it. Rebuilt pump. BTW - don't try to torque those 8mm bolts to the...

Re: 2000-2002 L Series Headlight Assy. Adjustment

Mine had Bosch lights. The outside adjusters did move the reflector left/right, but the bulb remained stationary in the housing. So the focus of the low beam bulb was also changed.
The Bosch lights...

Re: Changing the manual trans fluid L200

I actually did this on my LS1 (scrapped last year). The plugs are secured with thread locking compound (glue). I still have the 8mm hex key with the short end cut down. I used a small pipe over the...

Re: Saturn and Saab

I am sorry that I can't answer that question as my last L-Series ('00 LS-1) was scrapped two months ago. The body was too rusted in the rocker panels to keep on the road.

I can update the post...

Re: evap on SW200

Typically corroded filler neck pipe. The EVAP valve on the used one I purchased wasn't working, so I used the one from the old corroded neck.

Re: The tale of the blown head gasket

When I read the Title I thought: "Can't be an Ecotec, that is extremely rare on these cars".

Re: 2002 Saturn L200 Strut/Spring Issue

This may sound a bit off the wall, but I had this happen and fixed it in somewhat redneck fashion. Because the shock was still working OK and not leaking, I decided to fix it by making a new spring...

Re: Sub Frame LS2, 2000

I am a bit of a sub-frame expert after changing two of them. Yes, there are only two versions, and they are identical except for the "horn" or prong that supports the shift linkage. The differences...

Re: 05 L300 v6 timing belt suggested parts.

+1 on the fuel pump. The 2000 pumps are one year only specials with a metal top plate for the tank port and metal delivery/return tubes. Also shocks and springs are original at 385,000 km.

Re: L100 manual trans oil plug removal

I checked my Allen keys and see that it is the 6mm key that has been cut down. There is no 7mm key in my set. Note that I was doubtful that the plug would come free when I did it. It felt like the...

Re: L100 manual trans oil plug removal

I used a standard long shank 7 mm Allen wrench with the short leg cut down a bit to fit between the body and the plug. It was necessary to put a 12" piece of 1/2" steel pipe over the Allen to get...

Re: 220.4 Too High?

Every cooling system has a maximum capacity. If it is exceeded, the temperature will climb. I once had an (unnamed) vehicle which began to overheat. I went through all the items on the FSM diagnostic...

Re: Stirring up the pot on when to check the oil level in an ECOTEC 2.2L engine

Two things. None of the 2.2 engines I have had used ANY oil between changes, so I don't do periodic checks anymore. I have found that fuel economy is related to the oil level. The closer to the...

Re: Steering wheel rejuvenation

My case is worse. The non-leather covered wheel has worn through the plastic skin. Fortunately the skin and the underlying foam are both black.

Re: Why is it so difficult to order parts from GM?

I ordered some parking brake cables for the rear drums from a website in Ireland. Only one engine size of the Vectra B came with drum brakes, but they had the parts.

Re: subframes,

I should have read your post better. AT to MT conversion on these cars would only be attempted by a masochist. As Pierrot stated, there are many things that would require changing. The MT has a...

Re: subframes,

Re: Dim Headlights

For the record, the original Bosch headlight lenses on my '00 LS1 have never been polished and are still crystal clear. The car has spent most of its life outside in direct sun. I think this is...

Re: 2001 L300 rear driver strut

My experience is that these bottom strut bolts are difficult to engage in the threaded hole in the cast suspension arm. The threads are fine, which are easy to cross thread. The key is to have the...

Re: replacing front sub frame ?

As the splash shield contributes to the corrosion that condemns the subframe I recommend that you discard it. So the difference between round and square holes isn't an issue. The important thing is...

Re: 2001 L300 power brake booster and locked brakes

I had a similar experience to the OP with my old Saab 9-5. The shop replaced the booster with a rebuilt unit, which tended to hang the brakes on. In my case, hooking my toe under the pedal and...

Re: 2001 Lw300 V6 L3.0 Air box cutout for new evaporator

@Igranda - Most mechanics identify fasteners by the tool required to turn them, for example, a 5mm bolt has an 8mm hex head, and would be called an 8mm bolt. People who make things tend to use the...
