This wagon was my daily driver for a couple of years and it ran great. 158 K.

Re: Happy 2017 Saturnfans! Any Resolutions?

The clunking is often caused by worn sway bar to lca bushings. I have mistakenly replaced perfectly good original struts only to find out afterwards that it was the sway bar bushings. It is difficult...

Re: 1996 SC1 Sludge in coolant reservoir

With no history this problem becomes more of a crap shoot. Is it possible that the assumed cracked head may in turn have overheated the engine resulting in the oil consumption problem ? And then...

Re: 2000 sl2 overheating

When engine is cold, remove the cap on the coolant reservoir. Then start the engine and look inside the upper rear of the reservoir to confirm that coolant is flowing into the reservoir through the...

Re: Doesn't make sense to me

If the water pump is leaking, they usually drip down the backside of the pulley. If you run your finger around the bottom rear edge of the water pump pulley after the engine has cooled down, you will...

Re: Rear Brake Wheel Cylinder Replacement

If changing the cylinder is what you intended to do, then the broken bolt means nothing, except for getting another bolt. Get the brake line off and put in the new cylinder.

If the brake line nut...

Re: to buy or not to buy....

The car needs to have a battery in it to start. It will not start or run on just a charger

Re: no start 02 sc2

Check the EIS fuse in the under hood box, and any other fuse that controls the injectors.
If it was getting gas but not starting the plugs should be wet

There were two separate incidents within a few days of each other. Can't figure why a spammer would even bother with this site.

Re: SL2 2001 Manual 258***/ lots of questions

When replacing the ects, the connector should be checked for green corrosion inside on the contacts. If the connector has been replaced, often times the splices are poor or the wiring may be frayed...

Re: 1998 Saturn SL2 starting problems

The symptoms also indicate that the crank position sender may be failing. Try searching for CPS for more info.

Re: SL2 2001 Manual 258***/ lots of questions

Sorry but your SL2 sounds like a train wreck. One qt. oil in 200 miles or one hot day is close to being unmanageable. The very first thing you should have done is a compression test, which will tell...

Re: strut failure after 1 year?

Other mechanical failures can result in clunking also, notably sway bar bushings or detached sway bar ends. Have you confirmed that it is definitely the struts ?

Re: Sc2 no spark

Have you checked the EIS fuse ? Have you replaced the ects ? Maybe try a used OEM icm ? The icm connectors are also known to wear out after repeated use, and the wiring in general is far from robust.

Re: Starter cut off switch current draw question (30 amp coil?)

If you have a multimeter it would be easy to measure the voltage at the neutral switch, which I would strongly suspect to be 12v. The relay would also operate on 12v, and the 30A is most likely a...

Re: 97 SC2 (No ABS) Brake Pedal goes to the floor

I have a similar problem on my SW1. Strongly suspect the master or the vacuum boost, but I have not dug into it yet. Very interested to hear what the solution may be.

Re: Helpless 20yr old girl with radiator problems 1997 Sc1

Re: 2002 SL2 trans problem

Thank you for the follow through to close the thread. So the initial problem was either bad plugs or wires ?

Re: Shaking Steering Wheel While Braking

More than once I have found the shaking to be caused by sticking brake caliper pins. After a 15 minute drive with minimal braking, touch the wheels to see if one is hotter than the rest. If you cant...
