A new winter beater!

Well it's time to sell the Saturn. Just bought a Jeep GC that's in gorgeous shape (no winters) that will replace the Saturn as my winter beater.
I figured I'd post here first to see if there is any...

Re: Bought 97 sl2 with 62k miles, week later NO BRAKES

The right tools will probably cost more then having a shop replace part of the line to get you going.
Replacing all of the lines is a big job unless you get a preformed package but I can't find...

Re: Cornering capabilities

I have a lowered, re-sprung, well powered car with staggered wheels and a bit of negative camber, poly bushings, big sway bars and soft rubber. It handles like a go-kart and is my summer DD.

Re: Master Cylinder Bleeding

The MC was messed up when the first line bleed was done. When manually bleeding the brakes the MC piston goes down the bore to places it hasn't gone in years. This usually tears the seals. ...

Re: What do you think this is.

If it's more responsive at high rpm's I really doubt the cat is a problem. To your question about adaptive learning, the answer is no, it does not learn your habits.
Do a couple of 0-60 runs and...

Re: Basic subwoofer enclosure question

The size of the enclosure is based in part on the displacement of the speaker cone going from maximum to minimum throw. Therefore, two speakers, doubles the displacement volume.
A pair of 10" subs...

Re: Hi I'm new and have a CAI question

Looks pretty but pointless for day to day driving. It's strictly a "bling thing".

Re: Bucking at highway speeds

Thought I should update this. I ended up changing the TPS and all has been good since. Thanks everyone!

Re: Best caliper for long-lasting life

Still have the original calipers and pads on my 2002. Low miles but it just goes to show that leaving it sitting for 7 months or more has zero impact on the calipers.

Re: 95 sw2 rear view mirror with map lights upgrade.

All of the GM's and Chrysler mount the sensor just behind the grille on the radiator support. I put mine about half way down but still in the air stream when on the highway.

Re: Bucking at highway speeds

Thanks guys, you've given me a few things to think about. Cables, coil grounding and TPS voltage are on the list. By the way is voltage 0.5V closed and 5V fully open?

Re: 95 sw2 rear view mirror with map lights upgrade.

I'll add to this very good description for the Buick mirror. One additional wire is required for the temperature sensor, the compass is built into the mirror body. The sensor is mounted in front of...

Re: Bucking at highway speeds

The cables are numbered and fixed in length for each location and like I said this is random as in days between issues.

Re: Bucking at highway speeds

Yeah it was happening before the plug change and the wires are original so maybe the wires but why would it run perfectly for a few days and then start this behaviour.
Were wires the the problem...

Re: Bucking at highway speeds

Just pulled the EGR valve. It was black like a coat of paint but zero carbon deposits and the pintle moves freely. After reading another thread I'm leaning towards the TPS being faulty. My problem...

Re: 95 sw2 rear view mirror with map lights upgrade.

I like the 2002 Buick Regal mirror with ambient temperature and compass built in. Easy to find and install.

Re: Bucking at highway speeds

Thanks for the responses. To clarify a few things.
For one, yes 35,000 miles.
The bucking I'm talking about is not a mild surge like the AC compressor kicking in or low transmission fluid level...

Bucking at highway speeds

I just read a similar thread about bucking at highway speeds but I believe this is different.
1.9L 2002 SL with 35k miles on it.
The issue is this.
At highway speeds (65-70) the car will buck...

Or do without it. Mine came from the factory without the bar. Not too bad a ride.
