It should, but that depends on the manufacturer and dealership. * Most powertrain warranties define "powertrain" as internally lubricated parts of the engine and transmission.

If you are under 50,000 miles and 5 years you let the dealer take care of it! Replacing the bulb in an 2006 SRX requires the removal of the entire front bumper. So whether in or out of warranty I'd let the dealer do it.

It could oil pan gasket, or camshaft oil seals, or rear main seal (crankshaft), or crankshaft front seal, or oil pump gasket, or oil pump seal. I would start with the oil pan gasket. Before doing anything make sure that climb under the car and check where the oil coming from.

An oil leak there is probably a valve cover gasket leaking. it would not require head gasket replacment. Try tightning the bolts on the valve cover. If that does not work then replace the valve cover gasket. Yes it could be the head gasket as there are oil passages in the head and i have heard that head gasket on saturns are prone to failure,look around the valve cover for sings of a leak hopfully that's all it is because replacing the head gasket is costly on th 1.9 sohc

The majority of the stopping power is performed by the front rotors. I would start by replacing them.

Repairing a car can be costly. The cost to repair a Front Valve cover Gasket can range from $15 to $150 or more.

If you are trying to drop the front end 4 inches I would recommend replacing the stock front spindles with 3 inch drop spindles and replacing the front coil springs with 1 inch drop springs. If you cut the front springs to drop the front end 4 inches, proper alignment will be impossible.

Yes, it would be called a cold front, as the cold air is replacing the warm.

I'VE BEEN TOLD A SHORTCUT TO REPLACING THE WATER PUMP IS TO REMOVE THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD AND THE WATER PUMP WILL COME OUT EASILY. THEN OF COURSE, YOU HAVE THE EXPENSE OF REPLACING THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD GASKET AND EXHAUST O-RING GASKET. BUT A LOT CHEAPER THAN REMOVING THE WHOLE FRONT OF THE MOTOR. Try a chiltons manual or www.alldata.com If this is a quad four motor, you may not want to try this at home.

If it is under warranty call Motorola. They usually have a one year warranty.

Sounds like the Valve Cover Gasket needs replacing. You need to find out where the oil is coming from first. Clean all the oil off the engine and then start it, and look see where it is leaking. It is probably not the head gasket. Yes, that, but if you remove the Oil Filler Cap, and with the engine running there is considerable air flow coming out of the Valve Cover, then probably you have a bad compression ring on at least one cylinder.....what it does is pressurize the Valve Cover and eventually blows out the gasket....mine does it in the front......leaking oil all down the front of the engine.......a Compression Check would be in order.

It is a good idea to get a front end alignment after replacing and part of the front suspention.

Sounds like water pump needs replacing The main pulley is near the top of the engine. The water pump is toward the front of the engine. It is possible that water appears to be leaking from this pulley, but there is a manifold gasket right above it. Double check to find exactly where the water is exiting the engine block. My first hunch is a leaking gasket.

i am pretty sure the front bearings are part of the entire hub assembly. replacing the bearings requires replacing the enitre front hub. at least that's how it was on my 97 dualie.

cold front is when there are 2 air masses and the cooler denser one advances replacing the warm front

The cost of replacing a part is a very general question that unless specified exactly is hard to answer. First, is who is replacing the part? Is the Dealer, an independent repair shop, a junkyard, the guy next door or you doing the replacement. These will all yield different prices. Not to mention that within all of these will be different labor rates and different part price mark ups. Second, what is the quality of the part? Is it a name brand, generic (white box, economy), OEM or used part? All of these will be different. Price will even differ between name brands, sometimes significantly. Thirdly, What is the warranty of the part and who is offering the warranty (the shop the parts house or the manufacturer). Limited Lifetime will have restrictions. Lifetime warranty isn

No, doing a brake job does nothing to the front end.
