I am about to change the shocks and struts on this vehicle. Should I change out just the strut or the whole strut assembly, including the coil spring? Do I need a coil spring compressor if I change these out and will a front end realignment be required afterwards?
Mine did the same thing. I let it dry really well and smeared some silicone around the tube with my finger, as it appeared the water was draining down the inside instead of the outside of the firewall due to the hose being too short.
I just noticed the rear parking assist does not work and neither do the lights at the rear lift gate. What could be the problem? If it is a fuse, I can't tell which one. Does the plug at the under the right rear of the van have the wiring in it for the sensors? Do these sensors work off of a 12 volt power supply?
After I have turned on the seat heater for a while it feels like it is getting super hot. I don't want it to quit working like my other one did last year. It did the same thing. I have not yet found out why it quit working.
Look in your owners manual if you still have it. I have a 2007 Saturn Relay (same vehicle) and I think it tells you in it how to do this.
I am getting wet carpet more on the right than the left. Does anyone know where the A/C drain hose is on this vehicle or the Chevrolet Uplander minivans? I can't find the hose to see if it is plugged.
This is my mom's car. She has less than 70,000 miles on it and has a transmission leak. Are these cars prone to having transmission leaks? I think it is coming from somewhere on the drivers side. Where could this fluid be leaking from? It is not a super bad leak, but is leaving spots on the driveway and she said that she had to get fluid added sometime ago and it is low again. I don't know how much fluid was added then or how long ago it was.
Get the rotors turned. You must have overheated the brakes due to hard braking and warped the rotors.
While driving the truck will go to reduced engine power. I can stop, turn the key off and restart within a few seconds. It will then run fine, sometimes for a few miles, sometimes for weeks. Some times it will clear the engine hours, sometimes it won't. Also sometimes the check engine light will come on, sometimes it does not. What could be the cause of this? I have not had the codes read yet.
I think the firing order on any GM V-8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, #1 being the front cylinder on the drivers side and #2 will be the front one on the passenger side, then back to the drivers side for #3 and so on.
