#227 of 334 a/c compressor repair
Apr 20, 2011 (5:37 am)
i have a 2006 saturn vue and the air conditioning stopped working a few months ago. I took it into the mechanic to get it looked at, and he said that the compressor was leaking. I was also told that in order to get it fixed it would cost 400-750 dollars after installation costs. I am looking into doing it myself, but have never changed one on an inverted motor before. does anyone have any guidance for doing so? I plan on getting the part from a local place, but just need ideas as to change it. any/all info will be appreciated!
#229 of 334 2005 VUE ENGINE DEFECT??
May 19, 2011 (8:08 pm)
I changed the oil in late February. Last night as I was driving home from work, the engine started to knock. I pulled over to check the oil level. All was good but added one quart for good measure. I proceeded down the freeway again, and again the knocking started. It got louder and harder. Next thing, there was a loud boom and then smoke came from the engine. I barely pulled off the freeway before the car died. Had to get a tow home needless to say. Checked the engine the next day only to find that almost a foot long section fell off the engine block. Which explains the smoke after throwing all the oil out. My question is, what can I do about this as I still have 2 years left on making payments and have no ride. Is it normal to have it break apart like that? Can anyone help with situation

Just that it threw a rod, and it punched a hole about the size of a shoe in my block wall. Been searching for another engine. I've been told that there are 4 different versions of my engine, but when I call dealer they say just one

Only 1 version of your engine either way, V6 or 4 cyl:
The 4 cyl is better known as the L61
The V6 is known by Honda as the J35

Interior lights go on and off by themselves while I'm driving. Power door locks, lock and unlock by themselves. Thought maybe key fob was acting weird, so I removed the battery and stopped using it. Also, prior to not using the key fob, sometimes when I set the alarm, it would go off shortly after setting. Any thoughts?

1 - Body control module is failing
2- Body control Module grounds are corroded causing it to act funny.
Most likely the 1st. Its not an uncommon failure in the Vue - Dealer only repair, about $ 700.00
