Removed lugnuts but a tire will not come off the vehicle . The parking break is off, but the rear wheel will not spin. I turned the ignition on and the parking break light was not on. I lifted the par

rear wheels on saturn's I believe have drum brakes - these can tend to seize up when worn through and the brake shoe rivets start to cut into the wheel housing or if not worn out, just be tight enough to keep wheel from spinning freely. Also the light on parking brake is a simple switch attached to the lever and is not reliable. I've had parking brake cables rust up and seize which can be a pain - generally requires a replacement cable and often the connecting yoke and rods. As for the wheel not coming off - that's unrelated to the brakes - the brakes act on the actual wheel hub to which the lugs attach the wheel and tire. Many times it is problem of rust and dirt caked up between the wheel and the hub. I'd suggest rapping the wheel with a hammer, go all around the perimeter several times on the back side - use a piece of wood between hammer and wheel to protect the wheel from getting dented - the hammer "shocks" usually will vibrate thru the steel or alloy to loosen caked up dirt and rust. Can't think of much more you can do - maybe others have a suggestion. worst case might be to bring it to a tire shop and pay them $10-$20 to get it off - if it is just for inspection they can put it right back on for you. If you are looking to swap it out with another tire/wheel, then they will charge more since they often ding you for balancing it (which is a good idea regardless).

Can old coolant[8 years old ] cause overheating

Coolant can wear out, so they say. But when tested? First check.. When you turn on the A/C and it is working. The high speed engine/radiator fans should/will come on. If they don't look to the fuses first, then relays and wiring( could be a resistor in there also, I work on to many different ones). Worse case is the PCM.

How d I reset not ready monitors

No such thing as resetting an Emission Monitor What your asking-- is how to clear the dash light-- & ALL Data, you need to diagnose the problems with monitors that don't run clear, with no problems First you need to look at the OBD Codes you have Diagnose those codes & component test & find a problem & correct it & continue on Without a Professional Scan Tool your at a disadvantage If you have cylinder misfires that ruined the converter,then you have to clean that up & test the oxygen sensors or at least look at the data I start with Battery Voltage,Module Voltage,Fuel Trim,MAF Data & then Mode $06 Misfire Data & Cat Temp & on & on All but the Evap Monitor should run in about 10 to 20 miles of driving,not 345 You also have Freeze Frame Data at the time the Monitors Ran & failed So NEVER Clear the check light/MIL Lamp, etc unless ALL issues are fixed & then only if you have to Fault Codes you need only appear after a monitor runs, pass or fail,so forget the battery disconnect or code clearing, you need that data

Thermostat location

It should be at the end of the radiator hose coming from the top of the radiator back to the engine, look for where the hose meets the engine. That thing that the hose is attached to, unbolt it. The thermostat is under it. Make sure that you clean all the old gasket off both the gooseneck and engine. Use sealant to seal the gasket, follow the directions. Make sure the spring side of the new thermostat faces into the engine, and make really sure that you prefill the engine with fluid BEFORE you put the thermostat on.

My 2007 saturn sky brake lights stay on and cruise doesnt work

The brake light switch, located on the brake padal assembly, is and input to the cruise control module. When the switch fails keeping the lights on is makes the cruise control module think you are applying the brakes when infact you are not. Chek the switch wiring for damage and if ok replace the switch making sure you adjust it properly.

Is my fan supposed to remain on after I turn off the car

The fan will stay on until the motor temperature reaches a low enough temp. This is to prevent damage. As long as it does not stay on for more than a few minutes it is normal

2008 Saturn Sky Redline - starting issues. If I

I have the same problem, found that when it rains heavy or I wash the Saturn Sky; water runs down over the computer under the hood on the driverside. There is a drain port just above the computer so water runs down through the drain port onto the computer wiring shorting out this computer, when the wiring dries out the electrical problems are fixed. but the water can do damage to the computer which comtrols the radio and many other electronics inthe Saturn Sky. I know this because this happened to me. after washing my Sky all the electronics went crazy, found the water on my computer wiring. after a couple of times of the wiring shorting out the radio started comming on by its self while the car was shut off causing the battery to die over night. What a crazy place to put a drain port over top of a computer and its wiring. A cover needs to be made and placed over the top of the computer to prevent this from happening again. If you are having a problem getting GM to fix the problem; wash the car using a garden hose and let alot of water run down over the window on the driverside so the water can run down the water port under the hood onto the computer and wiring, this should create the same problem then take it back to the GM dealer and show them the water problem. They can then refuse to correct the problem. Good Luck. O yes one other problem you need to know about, if you don't have mud flaps on the front wheels the paint will chip real bad on the rear lower quater pannels and it will cost you a good dollar to have it repainted.

Electronic Stability Control

Try disconnecting the positive cable from the battery for several minuets..
That will re-set everything..

If that does not work - you really should have the dealer check it out before the warranty expires..

If you go unplugging things - you risk voiding your warranty..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)
