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.
Yeah, I got mine fixed a month ago, but I'll take it back up there. Is the program the ECU update?Blu_Redline said: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"
ya its on yours, but they wont give you any trouble. they might not have the parts yet though we only received 2 in the first shipment.navymitch12 said:john i am gonna call today but i figured i would let u know so u could check also, just incase they dick me around

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.
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.all4glh said: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?
