Loss of power

My mechanic examined our vue with the computer and could find no errors. We have experienced a fairly substancial loss of power and decreased excelleration. My mechanic thinks the next step is to examine fuel supply. He suggested that the fuel filter is in the tank. How hard is it to pull the tank, can I do it?

You and some friends could probably do it but in my opinion it's better to leave it to the guy that has a car lift because that makes it killer easy. and you have to have special fuel line disconnect tools which can be a pain to find sometimes.

Restriction in the exhaust can cause this. Test with a vacuum gauge normal 60 mph readings around 14-18 hg. in depending on throttle position once power loss starts if reading goes to zero restriction is present. then use of a infra-red thermal heat gun you can locate the restriction. hot to cold at plugged stop.

Exhaust smoke definitely not steam. Someone opined that it may be related to the turbo/exhaust system. What do you think?

A worn turbo or broken would create smoke. Blue or Gray smoke is either worn rings or a clogged PCV. White smoke is from foreign fluid entering the engine. Typically indicative of a head gasket leak. Black smoke is Leaking injectors or an ignition problem or an issue with the turbo.
If you are experiencing a loss in power then you most likely have a worn turbo bearing.

Are you looking for book time or actual time. Book time is what you are billed for and i would guess it would be in the neighborhood of an hour per side up to 2 hours per side.

O good experienced tech can hang a drive axle on most vehicles in about 30-40 minutes. This would include pulling the tire, removing the axle nut, seperating the lower ball joint, separating the axle from the hub, Separating the axle from the transmission, and then reinstalling.

Multiple error codes reported: U0100

UO 100-109 typically loss (or near loss) of communications with Onstar. Problem may be loose harness connection or defective onstar backup battery. I'm working on this issue with my 2008 Vue as we speak. I had a very similar code before, last year, and the dealer replaced the battery and the issue was resolved. There does exsist a service dept advisory informing dealers of this Onstar battery issue. Good luck.

98 rodeo 4cyl. why when i turn the ac on i loose engine power?

The cause of power loss is that the engine idle is not being increased when the A/C compressor comes on.

This is either accomplished electro-mechanically with an idle-up solenoid, or electronically, with an engine control "computer".

An idle-up solenoid fault is fairly simple to diagnose.

If you have the computer controlled idle up system, I would suggest using a garage to get a diagnosis.

More info? Let me know...

Fuel system

Have a mechanic do a fuel system pressure check. You are probably having a problem with your primary and secondary fuel pumps. This should show up as a problem with a code scan, but sometimes it doesn't show at all.
