Re: 2006 Saturn Vue Blower Motor Totally Inop

If your DON'T have a problem with the big connector on the driver's side, you may have a motor with worn out brushes. That was the diagnosis a friend of mine (and former Mr. Goodwrench) helped me...

Wrench 2007 V-6 Alternator Replacement

I could not find a how to guide for the generator replacement task on the V-6, so I brought my camera along for the afternoon.

A few days ago, I heard a whine, that correlated to engine RPM and it...

Re: Retrofitting Aftermarket Seat Heater in an '06 that had Factory heaters

Re: Replaced rear driver bearing hub. Saturn Vue 2006

Re: Front Lower Control Arm replacement

Then I factored in the aggravation of removing the rivets (no air tools in my gargare) holding the worn ball joint and it was easy to spend the 80 bucks for a new one.

Re: Front Lower Control Arm replacement

I wanted a new ball joint. The Vue has only seen 3 northeast winters, so corrosion is not a huge factor. Comparing the rear bushings also made me glad I did it. Much stiffer. When the driver side...

Front Lower Control Arm replacement

The front wheel bearing on the passenger side was getting noisy (49,000 miles on a Timken replacement), so I ordered a new (Timken) hub assembly and Moog LCA from Rock Auto. 43 degrees here today,...

Re: What next? Cooling sytem

If turning on the a/c causes the coolant temperature to go down, I would suggest that you test the electric fan that is behind the radiator. It is designed to come on at a certain temperature (about...

Re: Engine knock?

Re: Engine knock?

I also did my timing belt on my 2006 3.5L Vue and posted pictures and a PFD. Step ONE in my opinion is to determine whether or not you can break loose the crank bolt. If you can't, you aren't going...

Re: Brake Controller 2004 Vue

You will need to run a heavy signal wire from your controller to the back of the Vue and out to the hitch. I've done it and its pretty easy to conceal it beneath the plastic door sills and behind...

Our 2003 4 cyl Vue has a button in the underhood fuse box. Check the owner's manual for the 2004, it should tell you.

Re: Changing the serpentine belt on the Ecotec

Re: Scanner for 2006 vue

I really like Torque with the ALDL/OBDII adapter sending data to my Android phone. I used it to track transmission fluid temps while towing a pop-up last month; and it will show DTCs as well.
