How many quarts of oil does a Saturn sl1wagon 1.8 dual overhead camtake
The thermostat is located below the intake plenum assembly, on the passenger side. I believe you can see a part of the thermo from the pass side. It is a labor intensive process to replace it, hence the ~$300 repair quote from dealership. A lot of engine components have to come off to get to the thermo. The trickiest part of the replacement is finding the tool to undo the hose clips that hold the rubber on the plenum. These clips are called clic-R collar hose clamps. I've found a few vendors on eBay who sell the tool, but can't find it in/on any tool website. This guys eBay store seels the tool. http://stores.ebay.com/KONIKTOOLS CLIC-R COLLAR PLIERS 1212
Remove the drain plug and drain the fluid into an approved container. Refill with automatic transmission fluid. Yes, automatic transmission fluid in a manual. Dextron III or higher. Take's roughly four quarts.
On the front passenger side interior of the car, where the passenger's left foot would be, there's a plastic panel there that is attached to the main center console. Pull it off: it's held by a velcro type thing. You should see 2 pipes: those pipes connect to the heater core. There are 2 plastic clips: 1 on each pipe. unclip each clip. Make sure ALL radiator fluid is flushed and have PLENTY of towels and/or a drip pan inside the car. Be careful not to damage those pipes as they are aluminum. Pull the pipes down out of the core; it will get messy. Pull the core right out and replace. Do not lose the rubber gaskets and the plastic gaskets! Installation is reverse of removal. Good luck!
The starter on the 2002 Saturn vue is located on the front underside of the engine, follow the positive(red) cable from the battery and it should connect to the solenoid which is part of the starter.
Front of engine, right side as you're facing engine. It's about a foot down and sits upright in a black case with a spin-on top. You'll need a big socket to remove the top and the old filter will pull out.
http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/forum_posts.asp?TID=43698&TPN=2 the following information came from the above mentioned link: I seem to remember when I blew my lighter fuse, it was the only electrical thing that didn't work. I seem to remember the fuse located on the left side where the passenger sits. If you are looking at the radio, down and to the right a panel should pop off. Check all the fuses there, even if you don't know which is which. The inside of the panel should give a chart, too.
The axle nut will need to be removed. You will want to do that as the first step unless you have an air gun that can pull the nut off. From there the brakes will need to come off. hen look on the inside of the steering knuckle. There will be three bolts. These are what holds the bearing in, apart from rust. Remove the bolts and the bearing will come out, in theory. It may be rusted in place and fight you out.
I just changed the motor/regulator on a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee this morning. It took me about 1 1/2 hours total. I bought the general repair manual for the car at auto zone and it had step by step instructions for removing the door panel, removing the glass window, and for replacing the motor. it was about 7 bolts total to remove the motor/regulator assembly, and two pins to pop out with a flat head screw driver in order to dis lodge the window from its mechanism/lift arm. I am by no means a mechanic and know very little about repair, but this repair was easy. I recommend you buy that book at any auto parts store and there will be your answer.
SAE 5W-30 is what my cap says. I have the same SUV
I don't know about the 3.5L, but on the 2003 Saturn Vue 2.4L and the 3.0L, it's in the fuel filter. You can get the fuel filter for the 2.4L at any auto parts house, around $70.00. The 3.0L fuel filter/regulator, is a dealer item.
Yes. While looking at the engine from the front of the vehicle, look under the radiator hose slightly to the right and about 1/3 down on the motor. It will have a yellow top, and a little locking lever. You either need skinny arms or something to reach with, as it's hard to get to.
get the person out pf your trunk...lol
try it and see what happens it cant hurt. Try Fuel Injector Cleaner, (add to a full tank every 5k miles)
Also your oxygen sensor could be going (replace every 30k miles)
Bad spark wires can cause it too (check and/or replace every 30k miles)
You can also improve your mileage by keeping your tires at the proper rated pressure. (I check mine every week.)
To much. go to the junk yard and get a new one.
The BCM Computer on the car is likely going out. Soon you'll find most of your instrument panel unoperative.
