Re: Rear drive shaft and PTU

The only thing thats better than using like PB Blaster or WD-40 is heat. Like a propane torch or heat gun. When you use heat, heat the head of the bolt, then take like a screw driver and put it in the middle of the head of the bolt and smack it a few times with a hammer to "shock" the bolt. Put your...

Re: Disassembly diary... '05 Limited Anyone need anything?

I'm in need of a few parts. Was wondering what you would charge. Need the oil pressure sensor for the halidex awd unit, rear window wiper motor and wanted to see if you had a key fob that was extra that came with the scrap car?

Re: I took my 2005 Freestyle (with 133k miles) on a 3000 mile family road trip!

I vaguely remember seeing something somewhere about them shocks- Nivomats. The thing that I never understood though was my freestyle can be shut off and sitting still but the ride hight will stay the same even with the back fully loaded down.

Re: Oil pan gasket removal question

When I changed the cvt fluid and pan filter and high pressure filter I thought I was going to end up totally messing up the CVT transmission itself. The reason being that the gasket would not co...

Re: Transmission repeating issue U0100

I mifht have a suggestion for you. Take the wiring harness for the transmission out and clean it really good. Get any crud off the pins and spray it with some electrical contact cleaner or 90% ISO alcohol. Let it dry completely. Then get some good dielectric grease and coat the pins. Do this on the ...
