It makes sense now.

Re: 2008 Outlook XR issues

We were still having trouble I was told one thing and my husband was told another so Last Monday evening I sent an e-mail to GM on Tues morning Erick who I guess works with the Saturns called me and had already left a message with the services manager. Finally on Wed the owner called said we had every right to be upset and he would be our contact from now on. They pulled the only tech i trust there and had him start working on it. On this last Friday they called said they pulled another tech to help him as there is a mondular (sp) that is spiking and shorting out a couple fuses in the vehicle as well as shorting outing their testing equipment. They stated they are calling on this Monday to get some help on figuring out which modular is doing this as it is not leaving a tatal tail where they can follow it back. I will be taking in a copy of the full extended warranty for them. When the owner spoke to my husband though he told him that if the warranty does not cover this they would due to the run around we have been getting. The owner also told him if they do get fixed and we have to take it back in again then they will find a vehicle comparable to this one and trade with us--so we will see. Thanks

Hi a little of both I guess. I have been researching out the drain and giving them every thing I have come across. I will ask them if they have done the instrument panel. Thanks for the Information.

Re: 2008 Outlook XR issues

yeah- no hoses on these... theyre not like the old ones that had hoses coming out of them- and went to the heater core.
As you can see on my 2010- its actually flush with the rest of the pulleys.
I suspect that pic- may be wrong.... since its sticks out... but the water pump here is the upper pulley.

Re: 2008 Outlook XR issues

appears the image was stretched on the 1st pic I posted (it even appears to be the same one posted above- just elongated.

Hi Michelle,

The Outlook is at the same dealer again. I pointed out the noise again, but the big problem in the sunroof leaked--again. The drivers floor board was soaked, and left the truck stinking after 2 days (my wife does not drive much). We'll see if they fix the noise. I should get the Outlook back tomorrow, we'll see how it will turn out.

Insist they take the headliner down completely, otherwise they'll never find the leak.
