Re: Lawnmower Burning Oil

Why try to retrofit a new engine into an aged pushmower?

Re: Anyone know the flow direction for the fuel filter? Wix 33731

OldNuc answered Maiktadiesel when he said "The large tube is inlet or outlet and the smaller is the return."
And the small return should be on the TOP after installation.

Re: 95 SL2 automatic needs to rev high to shift

Have you checked the level at all? Since you had some leaking, did you top it off with Dexron III compatible fluid? Never use any other fluid in your Saturn, not Dex IV or VI.

Re: 1996 SL2 automatic shifting bad -need new solenoid?

Re: 1996 SL2 automatic shifting bad -need new solenoid?
