Re: Straight Up Bragging Rights

Hah! I've got 3 in my name :D

(several years ago, I made a list of vehicles I've owned - think it was right after my first Saturn - it was just under 40 cars and is probably over now - I need to...

Re: New SC2

Maybe :D

The auto PCM will run the engine very well. It will not disable cruise if you push in the clutch, though. And some folks have said that they can feel flat spots while driving (when the...

Re: 1998 SL1 rear bumper skin compatibility with other models?

Yes, any bumper cover from a 1996-1999 sedan (SL, SL1, SL2) will fit your SL1.

Not sure why it would be simpler to make do with another gray plastic one other than it is easier to find than a...

Re: Whats your MPG?

34mpg is pretty good for an auto trans.

Plus, Pittsburgh is not exactly flat driving :D

Re: 1998 Saturn SL2 won't start when parked on driveway incline

Well, that's interesting and a new one on me. Sounds like he is having you turn to ON several times before turning to START?

The important thing is, you got it started, though :)

thanks for...

Re: Detonation due to Carbon Buildup

I would think that if it was the belt tensioner, you'd still hear it at 2k rpm with no load.

If the fuel filter has over 120k miles or so, I'd check fuel pressure.

Might be worth checking MAP...

Re: gasoline door spring

I used a small piece of heavy foam, taped on. :D

Re: 1998 SL Water in Trunk

Fixing it yourself is pretty low cost. Haven't done it on a sedan, but have read that there is a richpin video - just a bunch of 10mm head bolts, mostly. I think you have to remove the tail light...

Re: 1997 SW2 Crank but no start, stuck on wiring.

Progress! :)

I know I brought it up but I'm kind of surprised that there is enough heat to affect your ICM, even with a big old hole(?) in the exhaust

Re: 1997 SW2 Crank but no start, stuck on wiring.

I thought you already had the ICM for a year and it was too late to return it?

You could always try a new PCM first - you would be out less money if it does turn out to be the PCM, but if it is...
