Re: Replacing Gas Tank

Just replaced mine for the same reason. No real difficulties, just a little hassle wrestling it out from under the car. I would think the higher you can get the car the better. Got the tank and new straps from Rockauto. The heat shield between the tank and the exhaust is pretty rusty on my car and m...

Re: I'm towing a light travel trailer, Vibe is super slow, barely climbs hills/mountains

I drive a 5sp. so I'm not familiar with the layout of the automatics. Is it possible to drive the car without using top gear? I've seen quite a few towing threads here, I think even people towing Vibes with their Vibe :)

Re: 2008 Passenger Airbag Recall Questions

2. Do GM dealers not get paid for doing recall work, or get paid at a lesser rate? Does it hurt a dealer to have to do a recall repair? They get paid at a lesser rate. Probably not enough to cover all the time they spend on the phone talking about parts availability, let alone the cost of the repai...

Re: Yellow cable behind glove box

You should have an SRS light on as well or somebody's really monkeyed with the system.

Re: Need help with alignment confusion

Meh, they set the front toe. Sounds like you got about $40 worth. In my opinion, the rear isn't out far enough to worry about.

Re: Camshaft position sensor...possible issues

I had a flakey starter (something in the solenoid or Bendix) it would turn and engage/disengage the Bendix during startup and really bang on the engine. I lived with it for a couple of weeks but the hit was sometime so violent I was surprised it wasn't setting a code (I was expecting maybe a misfire...

Re: Steering Wheel Removal

I unscrew those Torx screws as far as they will go, try to get them to catch on the screw case (pushing in the screw case, pulling the screws with needlenose pliers) and they just won't take. Maybe if I went and got some really powerful magnets... If anyone had done this and knows the trick - let m...

New Member/owner

Nice to meet you all. Just picked up an '03 Base off CL, pretty clean car, just getting familiar with it and working out little bugs. Most of my questions have already been answered while lurking around here, thank you all. Hopefully I will be able to repay the favors in the future. Happy Holidays!
