    they told me it was the left front differential seal that was leaking and they could not fix it because a pin that held the shaft in place was ceased so they could not fix the seal without taking the whole thing apart.

I need more info on this one. Where is it leaking from( out side of hub or inside by axle)? or is it leaking going into the differential? Let me know and I might be able to help.

    So the left front hub is leaking right? or is it a front wheel drive and it is leaking at the tranny where the shaft goes?

How to repair reverse gear on1993to1996 saturn transmissions(automatic)

This tip might work on other year transmissions I have only tried it on 1993 to1996 saturns.If your transmission gives out try this.Jack up front end of saturn and put on jack stannds.Pull drivers side front wheel.Pull off plastic cover exposes the side of tranny. remove carter pin and nut holding tie rod end.Remove lower control arm carter pin and nut from lower control arm.Take large screw driver and pry loose lower control arm from strut mount.Loosen brake line holder bolt from fire wall.Make sure everthing is clear from the side of tranny for removel.Loosen bolts all the way arround the side cover then loosen two bolts in the middle of cover and slowly remove cover,make sure you have drain pan underneath to catch fluid leaks out,hopefully you wont tear gasket and wont have to replace you pull cover off there is two tubes that attach to the inside or the cover one on the left will come out with cover one on the right will stay inside because you removed the two center bolts from cover.There wlill be two gears. The one on left has a nut in the center.It is a 23mm thin wall socket. I didnt have one so I took a short 23mm socket, half inch drive and stuck an extension inside it and took to grinder to make thinner. tighten down with impact and put back in reverse order.Fill fluid and start and check, im sure you will have reverse.Its easy.Good luck

I would contact the BBB about the AAA shop. They were taking advantage of you not to mention they did not warranty there work. Plus if they changed the pump they were the ones that left the clamp loose. In the future you should just take it to the shop you know and trust even if it cost you a little to have it towed there, it will be less than getting taken advantage of. It hard to find a good honest shop and it sounds like you have one so give them the business they deserve it.

How do i bleed the brakes on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am?

Bleeding the Brake System
When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or
replacement, air may get into the lines and cause spongy pedal action (because
air can be compressed and brake fluid cannot). To correct this condition, it is
necessary to bleed the hydraulic system so to be sure all air is purged.

When bleeding the brake system, bleed one brake cylinder at a time, beginning
at the cylinder with the longest hydraulic line (farthest from the master
cylinder) first. ALWAYS Keep the master cylinder reservoir filled with brake
fluid during the bleeding operation. Never use brake fluid that has been drained
from the hydraulic system, no matter how clean it is.

The primary and secondary hydraulic brake systems are separate and are bled
independently. During the bleeding operation, do not allow the reservoir to run
dry. Keep the master cylinder reservoir filled with brake fluid.

  1. Clean all dirt from around the master cylinder fill cap, remove the cap and
    fill the master cylinder with brake fluid until the level is within 1/4 I n.
    (6mm) of the top edge of the reservoir.
  2. Clean the bleeder screws at all 4 wheels. The bleeder screws are located on
    the top of the brake calipers.
  3. Attach a length of rubber hose over the bleeder screw and place the other
    end of the hose in a glass jar, submerged in brake fluid.
  4. Starting at the right rear proceed in this order left front, left rear and
    right front.
  5. Open the bleeder screw 1/2 - 3/4 turn. Have an assistant slowly depress the
    brake pedal.
  6. Close the bleeder screw and tell your assistant to allow the brake pedal to
    return slowly. Continue this process to purge all air from the system.
  7. When bubbles cease to appear at the end of the bleeder hose, close the
    bleeder screw and remove the hose.
  8. Check the master cylinder fluid level and add fluid accordingly. Do this
    after bleeding each wheel.
  9. Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the proper level.
