Yes, that's the thread. I don't know the internal workings of the e-brake, but the mechanism moves the piston and therefore the piston lack of movement can affect the mechanism. By manually...

Had the same thing happen on both my Saturns. I replaced the cable on the first one, which as you guessed didn't fix it, so I just stopped using it. On the second one I followed instructions from...

I have replaced two of them on a 92 I used to own. I bought both used from Joey at 6th planet. Both were rust free and priced around $65 delivered. There is one bolt on top (under the...

I didn't see spark plug wires listed in your tune-up. I would replace those before moving on to more obscure causes of vibration (if you haven't already).

Piston ring carbon?

Just a thought: I use Gumout to clean the carbon that causes sticking in my throttlebody, could I spray some in my pistons instead of MMO and then change the oil before startup? I was thinking that...

Actually, you can loosen up the internals on the rear caliper. Use some PB Blaster on the external mechanism (spray it alot to really soak it). After disconnecting the caliper, keep turning the...

Another vote for the 95. I went through some research (a couple of years ago) before buying my 95SL2 and it seemed like the consensus was that a 95 5spd with ABS (and twin cam motor) was the...

I also use a cap wrench, but only need it when I let someone else change the oil. The filters that I have installed always come off by hand. Of course if I was changing filters all day I would...

It will come off, but you need to straddle the shifter facing forward and then use your legs pull it straight up. Just watch your head if it pops off quick.

Thanks Wolf! I was hoping I could try to save them somehow.
One question, what exactly is PB blaster?
I would recommend this be added to the "how to" section, but I am not sure how it gets done.

E-brake caliper mechanism

Went through this with my old 92 with rear disc brakes and now its happening with my 95. The mechanism within the caliper that operates the parking brake is seizing up and not allowing the brakes to...

Applefool, sounds like your situation would be an exact match with mine (95 SL2 with all four mounts being new). I am starting to adapt to it, but I'll have to keep the wife from driving it if I...

Doesn't sound like it will get any quieter and actually at idle its perfectly smooth. I guess I will try switching just the upper back to the stock dogbone that I saved. The lower one that I threw...

Twistec Mount Vibration

OK, I now have all 4 mounts replaced with the upper and lower being stock Saturn units and twistec dogbones for the other two. All in all not too tough if you have good tools (as in 6pt. sockets). ...

Thanks for all the input. Yesterday I went ahead and ordered a set of the Twistec dogbone mounts for $80 (couldn't resist a sale). I think I will bring the car into Saturn for the tranny support...

Motor Mount(s)

I have noticed a slight clunking in between shifts sometimes that seems to indicate some engine movement. I have recently replaced the upper (easy one) motor mount with the newest Saturn version. ...

My other thought would be a CV joint on the way out, which I believe would increase in vibration with speed. I've never experienced a bad one in a Saturn, so I am not sure how it would feel.
