Re: Adding/fixing 06' Freestyle

Glad you are liking your new wheels. Freestyle is a great car as long as don't run into any transmission issues. This car has cvt transmission. No one will repair or rebuild this transmission that I called in Michigan. My recommendation is to drain the fluid and put new oem fluid every 50,000 miles....

Freestyle never came with remote start. You can add aftermarket remote start. My after market has box which is antenna mounted near rearview mirror.

Re: Rear Coolant Lines

Mine sprung leak today as well. Had into repair shop for a.c. recharge and alignment. They also quoted by-passing the rear heater core. $160 to by pass? I told them I would take care of it. Ordered new rear heater core from autozone for $50. My kids like heat in back in winter.

Re: P0171 (spark plugs and manifold gaskets change)

There are vac lines that run down the center of the manifold. Trying to slide and position manifold back in these lines can get caught under manifold then when manifold gets tightened down could pinch. I accidentally did this on mine. Pulled manifold and replaced the vac line payed more attention wh...

Re: Identify these for me, Please.

First picture is pcv connection. That plastic line runs to pcv valve. Rubber hose runs coolent so throttle body does not build up with ice in winter.

2nd part is evap purge valve with electrical connection.
