    Problems and Service
    Need a clutch replaced and have tried to find some kind of guide for it. I can’t find anything anywhere else so here I am. Would appreciate it if anyone could explain how to do it. Found one post here about dropping the transaxle. Is this more of a pain in the ass than a transmission?? Any...
  2. How-to: ATF Fluid Flush Without Pan Drop

    Hey all, I have a 2009 Pontiac G5 with about 150k kms (93k miles) and thought I'd try my hand at an automatic transmission fluid flush. Everywhere online suggested dropping the pan, replacing the filter, gasket, etc. I found a different (and way easier) way of going about it. Firstly, go...

  9. Rough Shift 08 SS Turbo

    My SS is a joy to drive. However, shifting is a bit of a workout. For example, shifting from first to second almost feels like I have to force the shifter from 1 down to 2. You can almost say it stops right before second gear and knocks into second gear. Before you ask, yes my foot is all the...

    My 2006 cobalt LT has roughly 167,000 miles on it. A few weeks back I was leaving work and experienced a loss in power when accelerating from stop in 1/2 gears. The RPM's did not jump nor did it sound like there was any slipping, but rather it sounded like the motor was bogging down. After a...
