Re: Harbor Freight hand tools - buyer beware!

For once HF doesn't even try to hide what size's the wrench's are. I do agree it's stupid they include 24mm and 26mm instead of 13mm and 16mm, but it's right there on the page (image cropped with the...

Re: question about putting an engine in

Swap the flex-plate on the automatic-equipped engine to a flywheel if it's going in a 5spd (keep the flywheel bolts from the 5spd motor, they're 3-4mm longer than the flex-plate bolts). Nothing else...

Re: Radiator Replacement

Never had an issue with A/C removed from the car (removed everything except the interior A/C bits on nearly every S-Series I've had...why keep something that never works?). You're supposed to slide...

Re: How do you drain a radiator on a Saturn SC1 2002?

Happens automatically. Much nicer than my Subie's that you have to jack up the front end so the radiator cap is higher than the rest and hope for the best and not as nice as my dad's '95 Oldsmobile...

Re: wHAT brand fuel filter model good for 1995 saturn sl1 ?

$45 for the '91-'97 fuel filter? Hory price jacking.

Isn't the '90s Ranger filter nearly identical and under $20?
Heck, the one easy to do thing on my dads Oldsmobubble was the filter (which...

Re: My poor SL1 hit by tree

Around here scrap is down to $140/ton (maybe less). S-Series being 1.25tons at best, that's $175. Fill it with heavy crap as best you can to bring that price up some but if you can get $300+ for it...

Re: Odometer stopped working

1995, not without a wiring guide to show where to swap pins around, if at all (1995 is pretty unique to '95 for most stock electronics other than the radio).
1 or 2 people have successfully swapped...

Re: Shift cable loop broke off - which fix to use?

The end loop requires more of a helm joint type connection than that problem causing stainless bushing allows (this isn't the first time it's broken the end loop on someone...). Don't think the end...

Re: sohc to dohc

The only change worth worrying about to the crankshaft happened in '93, can't use '91-'92's with '93+. In '99 or '00 they did change it to be better balanced but that doesn't affect anything else....

Re: Odometer stopped working

It's mechanical, nothing for the PCM or anything else (other than you) to magically fix. Setting the reading back to 0, or 800k or whatever you want is about 2 fairly obvious steps further into the...

Re: Small extra piece that came with Monroe quick struts - what is it?

Some models of car's use a rivet to attach the ABS sensor wire to the strut, pretty sure if the S-Series uses anything it's a mount that is held on with one of the strut->knuckle bolts.

Re: Windshield Wiper Length

24" driver and 20" passenger if you've already got the seat bottom lowered as much as it'll go and the 22" stock wiper doesn't wipe high enough for you to see out of >.<

Re: Do I need to replace wheel hub?

That's a front wheel, not a rear. Whole different animal to replace. Even at it's worst the rear bearing/hub assembly is pretty easy as long as you're planning on replacing it with the new one on...

Re: How much does it cost to replace fan

Not ever having priced the radiator fan nor the HVAC blower fan I'd say $100 total. Both should be under $60 new and both can reasonably charge 30min labor (unless they have a 1hr min labor charge...

Re: exhaust bends

If you can weld the pipe properly, my idea might not be as stupid as it sounds (then again, it probably still is). Cut a series of relief slots in the pipe where you want the bend to be (with the...

Re: 2000 sl2 shifting question

2-4-R

Re: Monroes installed...big dissapointment!

Try torquing the strut->mount nut some more.
My other guess is the boot isn't properly seated on the strut and is sliding around improperly.
