Re: Source for OEM top mount?

The OEM tends to last for many years IF the dogbones and trans mount are also good. Worn dogbones will soon trash the top and trans mounts.

Re: Opinions on white smoke

Shipping can knock things loose but it does not back out bolts. Mass rebuilds are a pig in a poke.

Re: KYB Excel-G 234056

Those camber bolts are not rated for the OEM specified torque. JUNK. Any shop that whines they can not do an alignment without them is by deffinitio0n incompetent, find another shop.

Re: 2001 Saturn SL2 Intake manifold Coolant leak

Old aluminum manifolds are not a direct swap onto a 3rd gen, they do bolt up though. Primary issues are throttle body and fuel rail.

Re: KYB Excel-G 234056

The corrosion buildup exerts incredible stress on those fasteners. This is why ever hot riveted bridges fall down.

Re: Squeaky Clutch when Over 80 Degrees

Yes, take a q-tip and roll it in a finger full of Sil-Glide and then wipe on the rod in front of that rubber boot. Cover about 1/2" of the rod length al the way around.

Cheap dielectric grease...

Re: Input Shaft Nut

There is a US company that probably has them. To find out I needed the thread diameter and pitch and it seems no one could be bothered so I dropped it. Saturn found them somewhere ...:snide: They...

Re: Input Shaft Nut

It is a standard aircraft part. All you need to start finding them is the diameter and pitch so it can be looked up.

Re: Head shave timing retarding a myth?

That is based on real data. The PCM has the ability to compensate for some minor shaving as long as you stay in the 010-015 range. More than that can lead to problems. There are adjustable sprockets...

There are short ones and long ones, the long one does not usually require any additional drilling. Check eBay carefully.

Re: ABS light stays on and no power to radio

The only thing power related that is remotely common is the ignition switch. That still runs to the I/P wiring.

Re: Downstream O2 sensor code

An air leak in the exhaust or on the intake side of the engine will cause that code periodically. After verifying no exhaust or intake leakage the periodic code is an indication of a failing cat. The...
