Front shocks replacement (Mac Pherson).
To give an idea of the job if you want to do it yourself or if a pro do it for you. it's just to give an idea i'm not a pro. Only special tool needed is a spring compressor. This job must be done with the hands and the brain. There is a very big tension on the spring once compressed. Compression must be equally distributed on the two compressors and they must be positionned in a symetrical way .

2007 Saturn Ion Front Suspension Problem
Took my Ion to the shop to fix low-speed clunking. Turned out to be lower control arm bushings, but they first "misdiagnosed" it as strut issues. So they replaced the struts. Ever since then, the front suspensions creaks when I turn the wheel. I took it back, and they spray lubed it, but it didn't help (of course).

Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 3/21/2014: My car is still working fine. I still have not had a problem with it starting since I posted this video 5 years ago. Still on the same battery. Thanks for all the comments! This is me showing how I cut the passlock wire on my car. My car would not start on damp, cold mornings, often taking 30 - 40 minutes to get it to start. After reading several forums I found users who were doing this to "fix" the problem. I thought I would tape this for anyone who was thinking of doing the same but doesn't know anything about cars. Like me. :) Note: I owe thanks to meron for the post at this link http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1137a7/83 it is where I first heard about this solution. Update 10.6.2012: I added a switch, I believe it was this one http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062533 I installed it with it in the off position, started the car, switched it to On while the car was running and the service engine light went away. Car started fine after that. I just shut it off again as it was cold one morning this week and I had trouble getting the car started. Once I got it running, turned it off and haven't had trouble starting it since. YMMV





Grey Pneumatic 89653CRD 1/4" Socket Set Tool Review -EricTheCarGuy

The 89653CRD set listed in the GP catalog as coming with wobble extensions, this set did not come with wobble extensions. We have reached out to GP about this issue but have not heard back yet. PLEASE DISREGARD THE COMMENTS ABOUT THE WOBBLE EXTENSIONS IN THIS VIDEO. It was suppose to come with wobble extensions and it did not. I do not know if the 12pt set has the same issue.*** ***Update. GP has stated that they have discontinued wobble extensions and they are no longer available.*** Outside of the issues with the extensions it's still a good set and I'm happy to have it. I've been using my 3/8" set for a few months now and love them. In fact, I loved them so much I got this 1/4" set to match. Sucks about the wobble extensions but hopefully GP will get it sorted out. I'll keep you updated if they do. Tool reviews posted every other Wednesday. The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com Related videos.
