Re: Help-can't turn clutch master cylinder

Look at the 2 parts and see what is different, correct as required.

Re: Hesitation after 1/4 temp guage AND constant speed

Did you ream out the little air holes in the head?

As you had the exhaust off it is a good idea to check this for leaks as a leak can cause a hesitation when the engine is warm.

Re: Bad Quality or Fake EGR Valve on eBay

SMP and BWD are from the same place so O'Reilly sells BWD.

Re: 02 SL2--Lower Control Arm/Ball Joint: Seized Bolt

The bolt is rotted junk. A 8.8 or 9.8 metric bolt and nut from hardware store is the fix. A 9.8 is preferred. This job requires the forging off of the outer bushing as well as cutting thar arm off....

Re: 02 SL2--Lower Control Arm/Ball Joint: Seized Bolt

Takes a good die grinder and those thin cutoff wheels and as they break and/or wear out you need a bunch. Will need a small cold chisel to cut the little bit you can not get with a grinder. This is...

Re: 02 SL2--Lower Control Arm/Ball Joint: Seized Bolt

The angle grinder wheel is too large to fit where you will have to cut. The outer bushing shell is cut with overlapping diagonal cuts with the final cut through each end made with a cold chisel or...

Re: Headlight assembly question 98 sl2

Careful eBay searching will produce LED replacements that are equivalent to a 200-250W halogen bulb and a 6000K color temperature. They draw about 35 actual watts so the wiring will be quite happy.

Re: Bad Quality or Fake EGR Valve on eBay

That is a compressed powder casting process and it was done at too low of a temperature. The aftermarket electric EGR valves for Saturn are of dubious quality and either SMP or BWD is the only one...

Re: 02 SL2--Lower Control Arm/Ball Joint: Seized Bolt

If you can find a qualified mobile mech that is reasonable you will be better off as this is a nasty job and will be worse than the other side was. Air die grinder and cutoff wheel is a bit more...

Re: 02 SL2--Lower Control Arm/Ball Joint: Seized Bolt

The bolt is firmly rust seized to the steel sleeve that is inside of the rubber bushing in the outer sleeve of the LCA. There is no room for a sawzall without either cutting the bracket or cradle. If...

Re: Battery Covers

That is a radiant energy deflector with a hint of thermal insulation. 10mm of an Aspen Arerogel insulation could be effective but it costs about $20.00/sq ft. and it is somewhat obnoxious to handle...

Re: Axle replacement gone south

Heat the jamb nut up as hot as you can get it, dull red hot if possible, and let it sit overnight. Then whack it on 3-4 flats on the jamb nut with an 8-12 oz hammer, 1 whack per flat, no heavier...

Re: Axle replacement gone south

One problem at a time here. Is the tapered pin removed from the knuckle? or is it now stuck in the knuckle? Exactly what do you mean by "the tie rod end won't budge".

Re: Battery Covers

The cover served the purpose of stabilizing battery temperature. This is more of a theoretical exercise than useful fact. Best to not use one as it also traps acid leakage if there is any.

Re: '94 SL2 manual trans, electrical help needed

The ECTS/fan is on that 5v supply and most of that 5v load can be externally powered. You would have to live with the FP part of the issue and it might disappear on its own.

Re: '94 SL2 manual trans, electrical help needed

IN theory you disconnect the 5v output lines and connect the replacement sorce between those lines and the PCM ground. The internal 5V reference is coming up fast enough to not be generating any fail...

Re: '94 SL2 manual trans, electrical help needed

That will work and provide a clean fix. I was thinking about the difficulty of getting an outboard 5v supply integrated into the PCM signal system without getting into EFI issues as a fix.

Re: Quill / input shaft bearing- where to buy?

All manual transmissions have some type of seal on that shaft. A failed bearing is a disaster but a leaking seal can be worked around. You do not have to go that way as you have located the OEM part....

They all fit fine. 97, 98, 99 will be the best and easiest install.

Re: '94 SL2 manual trans, electrical help needed

I used 94 Saturn PCM to find that one. Using ECM instead of PCM does pull up more results for the 94. Looks like lots of choices to pick from.

I suspect the electronic EGR will function with a...

How many pins on the device on the board?

The only thing that works is the correct year as you have major wiring issues with a 95 PCM as well as functionality. You have to have the CA emissions 94...
