An easy fix would be to go tothe Junk Yard and pull off the parts you need order to do this though I would advise getting a Haynes Manual (VERY VERY HELPFUL BOOK) for your car...Available at your local Auto parts Store (even if you dont do it yourself you should still get the can save you a lot of time and money when it comes to knowing and working on your vehicle)

SOURCE: blown pcm on my V6 2005 saturn vue

Well, if you went in for an oil change and walked out with a blown PCM you might want to get in touch with an attorney. That just doesn't sound right- they should not have been anywhere near the fuse box to turn the oil light off. As a matter of fact, they could have just cleared the change oil light with a scan tool. The attorney will probably tell you to go to a GM dealership to have an estimate done and/or go talk to the manager at that grease monkey and tell him to fix your car for free since they messed it up. You are going to need a copy of your reciept or work order from the shop and a copy of your paperwork from the towing company. Depending on what state you are in, what they did was illegal and if they try to decline your requests to fix your car that is definitely illegal- depending on the state you are in. Good luck and avoid those guys at all costs in the future!

SOURCE: muffler strap broken on 2001 saturn sc1 series how

Part is a dealer only part. There is 2 pieces to it. The strap is all you should purchase. The other part disconnects via a treaded bolt through the rubber mount above the muffler. Loosen the bolt/clamp on the muffler first this will give you the room to reach above the muffler with good lighting.

Code p0601 on 2001 grand caravan

A doozy! And common to Chrysler Dodge products. The code means the computer detected an internal fault in the PCM. There have been many reported failures of the Program Control Module in Chrysler products.
However, if you took off the connector to the PCM while battery was connected, you may have set the code yourself.
It's pretty much a dealer fix: In most cases, the fix is to replace and reprogram the PCM. In a few instances, the dealer may be able to reflash the PCM and get it working again, but usually it needs replacing and reprogramming. It's probably not, but ask if it's still under emissions warranty.
If you use an independent shop to replace the PCM, make sure they can also program it. Good luck.

2001 Jimmy. Changed out the ECM, now it won't start. Anyone know the procedure to follow for afterwards of replacement?

The computer on that vehicle is a Power Train Control Module. Or PCM.
The PCM requires a reprogramming procedure that is specific to your vehicle, as the vehicle identification number is also electronicly stored. Some GM dealers have an "off board programmer" that allows them to reprogram the PCM at the parts counter, however most shops will require the vehicle to be brought in also.
