Under the column there is a plastic panel. Use a small screwdriver to pop off panel,and there should be a white plastic button. Press the button and this should release your key. I believe there is a recall for this GM#12089.

Question Answered: loosing power going uphill then catches and recovers(knocking sound startup only
March 09, 2014, 12:21 PM
Knocking is most likely piston slap, as these certain GM engines were known too have. Sounds as though car was not maintained very well.

Blowby., 1st check your PVC valve. Alot of people over look this valve. 2nd, with the engine hot and running, take the oil cap off. If smoke or air is flowing outward this is an indication of blowby which a leak down test should be done. 3rd, it could be worn piston rings.
Question Answered: Water in the oil .
February 28, 2014, 12:18 PM
Is the oil a milky white? Is it condensation from temperature change? If the vehicle wasn't driven long enough too reach full operating temperature for very long may not purge out moisture, same if vehicle isn't driven enough. Yes, change the oil (I don't think a flush is needed)and watch. If you see beads of moisture on the dipstick and white smoke from the exhaust of a warm engine, then you most likely got a head gasket problem. I agree with pushrod if your not sure.
Question Answered: windshield wiper fluid/ right turn signal

Sounds like a bad contact in the turn signal/ wiper switch.
Question Answered: Which spark plugs would u recomnd? Champion single or double platinum at gap .50
February 28, 2014, 06:38 AM
I agree with answer's #1 and #2. OEM all the way, the more the platinum, the more $ out of your pocket. Save your money. I've seen people who think they will get more H.P. or better gas mileage if they buy over hyped plugs.
Question Answered: My Vue leaked all it's oil out while my wife was driving. It's now ticking. Help

I would check the PCV system to see if it's clogged up. On this engine, they have what is called an oil separator housing unit. If your not the mechanical type, it's best to take it to a shop. Also,3.0 engines have had had troubles with rear main seals.
Question Answered: Local Ford service dept advised that I needed the throttle body cleaned
February 22, 2014, 05:25 PM
You can clean it, but use ONLY CRC throttle body and air intake cleaner. Ford uses a Teflon based coating in which CRC makes a cleaner for that purpose. I had two Ford Taurus's in the past and I cleaned the Throttle body's with CRC and an old toothbrush with good results. Also used CRC mass air flow sensor cleaner too.
Question Answered: What could be the problem when it won't turn over, but the battery is fine?
January 31, 2014, 03:37 PM
Had the same problem with my G6. It was the battery. But, don't count out the starter as Pushrod say's. I had a bad cell which was enough too cause a no start.
