Re: Need a Front subframe

I would not be concerned with welding or bolting the old dogbone bracket onto your new subframe. The dogbones are not the same thing as the control arms.

Dogbones are properly called torque strut...

You can get them new anywhere. I used Mevotech ones with grease fittings from Rock Auto. Member trottida has also had good luck with them. I am still chasing a clunk and not sure if it is the...

Re: Need a Front subframe

Thanks. Panic is the mother of many inventions.

Regarding the last two pictures, those are the control arms. They are a wear item, not super expensive, and a good thing to replace based on how...

I vote it's not safe. Pretty scary actually.

Re: Whats your MPG?

That still seems low. I usually see 28 all winter and 32 all summer. At least when I used to drive that is.

Re: Help! OBD ll code ( P3400 )

I think a P3400 code means you actually have a Honda and not a Saturn. A P0340 code is more common with Saturns. It's a camshaft position sensor issue. Saturns don't have one, but they use sensing...

Re: Need a Front subframe

I guess I'd call it a frame. Definitely a structural part of the unibody. Here is what it looks like from the top.

Re: Saturn Craigslist Deal of the Day!

Good question. Here's the reality:
1) I bought the car for $500. It was really a $300 car with $200 worth of new tires.
2) The manual transmission shifts poorly, especially into third. Probably...

A '99 DOHC wagon for $350. It's an auto though. Less of an issue is that it has a busted knuckle. It's about 20 minutes from me.

Re: Replacing oil pan gasket, how hard is it?

We replaced ours for a small leak. It depends if you are ok with oil under the car or not.

My '98 was missing the cover. I put one on without dropping the exhaust.

I've never had an auto so I can't comment there. Any manual S Series cover should fit.

Re: Saturn SL2 tire questions

Mark,
The sway bar in the S Series is effectively the drag link for the control arms. So if they were really shot it could affect tire wear. Be prepared if you live in a rusty climate - they may...

Re: Replaced control arms resulted in wonky steering

I'd say they ride fine, not that we are very choosy. The KYBs we had on before were fine before the mount failed. The OEM struts on my '98 suck - because I think they have nothing left to give!

Re: Replaced control arms resulted in wonky steering

So my alldatadiy info says there is 1.5 degrees of camber adjustment available if you loosen the two strut to knuckle bolts. The picture shows round holes. It also goes on to say that if you want...

Re: Replaced control arms resulted in wonky steering

But - Saturn didn't design the car to be adjusted like that. There is the camber adjustment as I've described, and the toe in/out adjustment on the tie rods. That is pretty much it.

Re: Replaced control arms resulted in wonky steering

Mine are definitely like yours and are definitely adjustable. With the two bolts between the strut and knuckle loose, you can flop the wheel back and forth changing its camber. When the camber is...

Re: Replaced control arms resulted in wonky steering

Definitely untrue. The assembly pivots on the top bolt. The bottom strut hole is a slot shaped in an arc. So the bolt is tight in the knuckle and the strut pivots back and forth changing the...

Re: Is there a coasting speed sensor?

My recollection from when I had it apart is that it is a hall effect sensor that picks up the ring gear teeth as they wing by.
