Re: Owner Story: Happy to Have My Saturn Back

That's a GREAT story! I've had my 95 SL2 since she had 88 miles on her. Sure I've replaced the engine and tranny (twice), but I've NEVER considered getting rid of her. Not since the advent of car...

A/C button stopped working

I just replaced the original battery on my Relay 2 and my A/C button suddenly stopped working. Do I have to replace the ENTIRE faceplate for the A/C and heating element, or is there a way to just...

Re: Installing Sirius (SIR-GM1 tuner) in Relay

Can anyone tell me how to unstick the multi disc CD hanger in a Relay2? I hate having to listen to commercial radio and don't really want to take my iPod with me. In my SL2, I don't have the...

Re: Goodbye Saturn: Thanks for the Ride (1985-2010)

I've had 3 Saturns in the last 16 years, but since day 1 of the company launching, I wanted one.
When I won Sparky in a church raffle in June 1995, she was a God send. I didn't have a car at the...

Re: What Does Saturn Have in Common with the Energizer Bunny?

My '95 SL2 has nearly 230K on it and is still[I]going strong. I also have a '05 Relay 2 and while I don't have that many miles on it, I love riding high and the feeling of being a bit safer than in...

Attention weatherstripping on windows and trunk

If anyone can tell me how I can get Sparky (my faithful 95 SL2) to stop leaking from her windows and trunk when it rains, I'd really appreciate it.
I've used plastic bags to try to keep the water...

Re: ***Penske deal could be 24hrs away***

Ugh, shoot me now. If I wanted a crapanese car, I'd buy uh, um, er, ah, hmph, well, I wouldn't. A kolean car? Hmm, maybe a Kia Soul, only because I like the commercial, the hamsters and the music....

1st car (that I bought) 1980 Pontiac Phoenix (a Chevy Citation clone)
2nd car 1989 Geo Spectrum CL (an Izusu I-Mark twin)

Re: How Many Saturns Do/Did You Own At Once?

I owned 2 at once. Sparky, my 95 SL2, had 86 miles on her when I won her back 12 1/2 years ago. (Not a bad ride for a buck). :D I adopted Smoke in Feb of 2006 when I took Sparky to the dealer to...

Post Re: Saturn and Delco Parts Compatibility?

Funny how the GM, Delco or other GM-related parts are supposedly not Saturn compatible. When I replaced the plastic air dam, the plastic shrink wrap said GM Performance Product. And the Saturn...

Post Re: "What engines can I swap" poll

OK, Rover, the reason I asked is because as the owner of a newer Cavalier, I wanted to put an older Cav Z24 V6 engine in my 95 SL2. Actually, I wanted to put the same year engine and tranny as the...

Re: GM engine/tranny swap Is it possible?

Post Re: World minus 1 SW2

Sorry to hear about your loss. My 97 SW2 was killed in the same manner as yours, by a stupid Toyucky truck. (He claims he didn't see Smoke, which is a crock, cause how can you not see a gold car?)...

Post Re: GM engine/tranny swap Is it possible?

OK, bottom line- a mechanic at the Chevy dealer where I just got my 04 Cavalier told me he could put a used tranny for $700 or rebuild the one in the car for $1K. I've put too much blood, sweat and...

Post GM engine/tranny swap Is it possible?

I want to put a GM 2.2 or 2.4L engine and auto tranny in my 95 SL2. Question is, will the swap work? I don't want to get rid of the SL2, but since it's already "old" parts are hard to come by. Or...

Post Re: Best year for SL2? Worst?

I have to admit, I'm biased towards the 95 SL2, being that's what Sparky is. I fell in love with the S-series when I first saw it at an auto show in Los Angeles. When I finally got mine, I was so...

Re: 94 SL2 Automatic shifts hard

Hey all, the vehicle speed sensor was changed on Sparky and while she still shifts hard, I think I'll just have to change the tranny filter and fluid, and she'll be good to go. 13 model years old...

Re: 94 SL2 Automatic shifts hard
