    2016 Trax driving intermittent miss under light acceleration, also at idle

    I was thinking that too, but it occurs if the defrost is on or off. Compressor clutch is very loud BTW. I chalked that up to cheap engineering and lack of sound deadening.

    2016 Trax driving intermittent miss under light acceleration, also at idle

    No code set...dealer wouldn't fix anything under warranty. So...seems to happen when it's wet out...not sure if it happens when cold and dry. Any input?

    2016 Trax driving intermittent miss under light acceleration, also at idle

    Taking it in today for the recall. We'll see if that's the problemo. Update: Didn't find the problem but did replace the front control arms under a different recall. Interesting...my wife took in the car and was talking with the write-up guy regarding the original problem. Says if a code...

    2016 Trax driving intermittent miss under light acceleration, also at idle

    Still under powertrain warranty, 39K miles. No previous issues. Started the other day, intermittent "Chug" under light acceleration. Just gives one "bump", not a chug-chug-chug like a slipping/grabbing clutch with a manual trans. Usually around 35+ mph, seems like either in 5th or 6th...

    Chain saw won't start hot

    Sold it and bought an 07 Solstice. Perfect day yesterday for a drive with the top down.

    Chain saw won't start hot

    Moot. Just found out the oil chamber nipple broke off...might have done it when I was disassembling it. Thanks for the info, Gents. Don't want to put any more $ into it. Used the primer bulb to repair my homelight saw.

    Chain saw won't start hot

    Dang. Nobody has a replacement magneto new. Too old, I guess. I bought a used one and will try it out today.

    95 S-10 ABS light on

    You might be able to find a used Actron CP9449 ABS scanner used on the cheap. Got me through a lot of ABS-which-wheel-is-it? questions.

    Pontiac Torrent passenger belt buckle not working

    Yes, perhaps I wasn't clear. There's a piece of trim that partially covers the end of the belt buckle with the hole in it for access to the anchor bolt you pictured. I had to partly loosen the trim to get the electrical connector attached to the buckle out after I took out the (pictured)...

    Pontiac Torrent passenger belt buckle not working

    Pretty easy job. Only difficult part was getting the trim screw out. Who puts in a 1" torx head screw under the seat to hold in a piece of trim that pretty much isn't going anywhere? smh Well, yeah, it didn't go anywhere, but that's not the point. LOL

    Pontiac Torrent passenger belt buckle not working

    Didn't work. Something is busted inside. Guess it's one of those 20%. Found one on eBay for $20.

    Pontiac Torrent passenger belt buckle not working

    So far I've found part # 19149915 for "ebony" color, which is about $30 more than the beige color. So far it's been around $90 new.

    Pontiac Torrent passenger belt buckle not working

    The buckle for the front passenger seat on my 2008 Torrent is not working. The retractor and belt work fine, but it won't "clip" into the buckle part. Is this repairable or do I need a new one? Part number, anyone?

    Reprogramming seat sensor cost

    A heads up: You kid will get stronger than you...someday. Of this there is no doubt. :) I held on into my mid-30s, then began to lose the battle with the kids :giveup:. At some point, you'll get comfortable with it. I struggled to come to terms with my waning desire to exercise, which...
