Re: 2.2L Oil Pressure Light + Leak

Check the oil filter cap very carefully for a crack. Those plastic caps are very easy to crack due to heat, age and improper torque. (Too tight) will crack them.

GM has a kit that has a new cap,...

Re: Axle shaft removal trouble

As mentioned by fetchitfido, a long handle pry bar should always be your first choice. However, since you have a problem with the pry bar slipping, the Wide pry bar has worked for me in several...

Re: Axle shaft removal trouble

I can't tell you this will work on this particular car but I've had good luck using a wide pry bar as shown on other FWD cars.

The key is to find an area that allows you position the bar so that...

Re: Wet carpet on the passenger side.

Sounds like your fix will be much better than the factory attempt. Good Job!

Re: Water dam at base of drivers wiper arm?

^^^ I can confirm that all 3 of my 04's have no hole on the driver's side for drainage. Why the Saturn designers missed this is a real mystery.

I can confirm the same situation on both of my 2.2's. I have to wait at least 24 hours before I get what appears to be a valid reading.

That engine seems to hold an awful lot of oil on the top...

Re: Excessive tie rod end wear

Good Question since you recently replaced it. Possible reason:

Poor quality part to begin with that was not properly pre-lubed at the factory.
I don't think AC Delco uses zerk fittings on their...

Re: Replacing alloy wheels leaking like a sieve. Alternate compatible size?

^^ Agreed, The 16" X 6.5" pictured above or this one 16" X 6" will fit the early L's. Not so sure about a 7" wide aftermarket wheel however.

That extra 1/2" in width may causes some issues.

Re: Ocasionally won't start

^^^ Good. Make sure you clean BOTH sides of the butterfly. Then try some Seafoam while you rev the engine. Just a little bit at a time while you rev the engine. Lots of smoke will result.

Re: Replacing alloy wheels leaking like a sieve. Alternate compatible size?

My suggestion would be to stick with a L-Series GM wheel.

I don't think Saturn ever offered a 7" wide wheel for the L-Series. Might be some issues with that wide of a wheel. The attached...

Re: Ocasionally won't start

That rules out a weak fuel pump then. That is an excellent pressure reading.

Since the raw gas prime allows the engine to start and run, still points to a fuel delivery problem somewhere.

Does the rattle go away when the RPM's are raised? Yes, it does go away or no it just gets louder?

Re: Ocasionally won't start

Welcome to the forum Brett. Glad to have you with us!

Could be a number of items but since when you prime it with raw gas, it will start and run points to a fuel starvation situation.

Re: shady oil change

^^^^ Agreed. or Drain 1 qt. out and fill with 10/40 or 15/40.

This depends on the temps where you live. In northern cold areas, a total drain and refill with 5/30 would be best.

Re: Hard Shifting, Cooling Fans Running All The Time

What is the mileage on this engine?

The fact that the engine idle returns to a normal level when you apply the brakes seems to indicate a vacuum leak in that system. Check the booster and the line going to the engine for possible...

Are you sure it was shaved 1/8"s of an inch? That is an very large amount to shave a head.
