I just got a letter in from Saturn saying there is a recall on the camshaft position sensor seal. And they have a newly designed seal that they are going to put in. So just letting everyone know its a recall now.

Got a letter in the mail today recalling the car for the cam position sensor seal. It says that the seal may fail prematurely and cause and engine oil leak that may cause engine damage. THe letter states that it is for the 2004 and 2005 Red Lines. It gives no VIN # break, just says all vehicles equipped with the supercharged 2.0L 4-Cylinder engines (LSJ).

Second to the last paragraph reads:
"If you have had previous repairs for the camshaft position sensor housing seal, it will still be necessary to have this program performed on your vehicle"

Yeah, I got mine fixed a month ago, but I'll take it back up there. Is the program the ECU update?

I actually had taken my car up there for some other reason and I got it back and they had done it. They didn't tell me but I noticed it on my receipt. HOWEVER NOW MY CAR DOESN"T LIKE TO START. AHHHH I'm getting a little annoyed. Now if I like go to start it it takes 2 or three times to try. It never turns over. I am takin it there again tomorrow to have them look at it.

Thats a bummer I had mine done tonite and I found drops of oil under the car when I got it home.I just hope it is the oil that spilled from the sensor coming out and was left on the engine and not leaking.I would be really upset if this was done wrong.

I just got the letter today. I think I might give them a call and see if it can get done tomorrow. I am going to ask about the update also.

I called today as well, i am getting it done Wednesday of next week. No big rush since it is parked anyway. They also said they would do the ECU upgrade as well, but they said that it doesn't come from a disk that they get it from the internet. Does this sound right?

It seems like the standard is to ship the discs to the dealerships, but there is no reason they shouldn't be able to download it from the corporate network. Unless they simply don't do it that way. It's really up to them, and their IT people as to how they distribute a software release like that. It makes far more sense to have it available for download. I'm not sure if they NEED it in CD-ROM form, they may have a dedicated computer or something that requires the CD, and they use that device to do the updates. I know someone around here said they downloaded it for them, but perhaps they have a CD-burner laying around, either a business machine or a personal machine at the dealership. I wouldn't be suprised to find that a lot of dealerships don't have CD-burners in their computers, or have any idea how to download/transfer it over the network, burn it on CD, and install it from there. Or, maybe they either don't know or don't want to do it that way.
