Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Sunday - replaced the TPS. Did it with the throttle body on the car. Fixed my high idle problem. I used the old screws because the new ones that came with the Standard Motor Products TPS had paint...

Re: 99 sc1 ignition module wiring

Say, it wouldn't be going into a Fiero, by any chance?

Your project sounds interesting, whatever it is.

Re: Help-can't turn clutch master cylinder

Look for scratches on the plastic of the new master? If it is catching somewhere, there should be small scratches where it makes contact

Re: I think I need a thermostat

Ideally, should show 3/8, roughly between the 1/4 and 1/2 mark.

Re: Revs high

I re-read the entire thread.

I would re-check your TPS - when you get the high idle, turn the engine off and on again to see if it goes away.

I did some research before replacing my TPS a...

That was my guess too, but noted that it is...

Re: Rear disc brakes...

It's worth noting, when Luke retired his 1995 SL2 with 653k miles on it in 2011, he had his original rear brakes.

Re: 1999 saturn sc2 Blinking low coolant light

You've got a small leak or evaporation (loose cap?) somewhere.

Drove my first Saturn for 7 years / 100k miles and only got a low coolant light once, the first time I (under) filled it. :)

Re: Car won't stalls after warm up

Yep. See Cheyne's post #3.

Typically, let it cool down about 10~20 minutes and it will start right up again like nothing happened.
