    Part number confusion for seat occupancy sensor

    Just a thought...would the part number be on the old one (in the Torrent)?

    Part number confusion for seat occupancy sensor

    Bought the Solstice and had it repaired under warranty at the (former Pontiac) GMC dealer.

    2015 Equinox low coolant in reservoir

    Yeah, I did sell it to a local guy who was really into Elkys. I was very torn on whether or not to sell it, but glad it got a good home. Allowed me to buy my 07 Solstice, which I had no time to upgrade this year....not even time to give it a good coat of wax. Weather has sucked here, lots of...

    2015 Equinox low coolant in reservoir

    Dealer offered to do repair for nearly the same price as local shop. Since they already gave me a loaner and I'd have to pay them for the diagnosis plus pay the other shop for the repair, it ended up less expensive to just have the dealer do it. $610. Still an ouch, but meh, it's done. Now...

    2015 Equinox low coolant in reservoir

    "Us" meaning....who? Local shops? If so, I just don't have the time to fix everything myself, although I like to work on cars as a hobby. BTW, just got a call back from the dealer (haven't picked it up yet) They're "seeing what they can do" in terms of the repair cost. I'm a little...

    2015 Equinox low coolant in reservoir

    Local shop $584. Worth it, they're very trustworthy and I know they won't bend me over. I've got 2 other cars that need service and I don't have the time to fix them all.

    2015 Equinox low coolant in reservoir

    Typical GM. Small leak in radiator Not covered; also owe them for looking at it, not sure how much yet. $1000 to fix. I'll check with my local go-to-when-I-don't-feel-like-fixing-it-myself guy; I'll bet they charge half that. BTW, anyone have a GM part number for the radiator? 2015 Equinox...

    Question from a shade-tree, what does slotting the pads do?

    2015 Equinox low coolant in reservoir

    Low coolant in coolant reservoir, just noticed the other day when I changed the oil. Low as in almost empty. Only four places it can go, right? 1) Internal engine leak 2) External (to engine) hose/clamp/water pump/gasket leak 3) Radiator leak 4) Heater core leak Have not seen any coolant on...

    Storing 2015 Chevy Trax

    I'd prefer not to use a car cover, but the assigned spot in the carport drips this white residue...not sure if it's bird poo mixed with rainwater or if it's some by-product of corrosion of the carport roof, but it's difficult to get off the paint when it's been sitting there. For the most part...

    Storing 2015 Chevy Trax

    "Grammar and Capitalisation..." How about spelling? LOL. "Capitalization", perhaps? ;) "...and just let the car sit through the winter" Better? And BTW, I'm a veterinarian and used to work with breeding horses so....yeah, that was part of the job, LOL. Anyhow, yeah, it'll be cold in...

    Storing 2015 Chevy Trax

    My kid is going overseas for a semester and is leaving his 2015 Chevy Trax here for the fall, winter and next spring (Michigan). It will be covered outside in a carport and have a car cover, but no access to electricity to keep on a trickle charger. I plan on starting it up every couple weeks...

    ABS light is staying on

    Actron has a reader that will read ABS codes for less than $100 CP9449. Occasionally can find one on eBay on the cheap. With these, you don't have to worry about foreign made knockoffs like you do with the Tech II units made in China or wherever. I bought one new and it's paid for itself...

    Chain saw won't start hot

    Makes sense. I really like this saw, runs and cuts like a champ otherwise. I'll look into it, thanks much.

    Chain saw won't start hot

    I'll check that. But...in theory...it runs fine when hot, just won't restart until it cools down. If the magneto is wonky, wouldn't it stop running or run poorly when hot?

    Solstice GXP Turbo upgrade

    Thanks for the links. In either case, I'd need to have someone do a flash upgrade, correct?

    Solstice GXP Turbo upgrade

    Just bought a 2007 Solstice GXP and heard about a dealer installed upgrade for the turbo...about $650 or so that's a flash upgrade and different MAP sensor. Is this something that I can install myself and have the local mechanic do a flash upgrade on the software? I'll check around to see if...

    Part number confusion for seat occupancy sensor

    Interesting... I was just looking at a 2007 Solstice available right down the street. The owner mentioned there was a recall on the passenger seat sensor and he was waiting for the part. Guessing it's the same issue as with my Torrent.

    Door electric stuff gradually being lost

    What I ended up doing is soldering in a short length of wire for the two wires that were completely separated and using liquid electrical tape on the wires where the insulation was cracked (but the wires were intact). Yeah, less than ideal, but I was under some time pressure from...
