I remember reading the original thread back in the the early 2000s when it was concluded that it was the oil rings getting stuck due to no drainback holes. It made sense back then, and much has been...

Re: Extinct Car Day 2015 at Larz Anderson Auto Museum

Still working on my 95 SC2 occasionally, it's in 1000 pieces. Maybe by next summer I will have it put back together and I can make it out there a year from now. Good to see the pictures :)

Re: Transmission Service...Does this sound correct???

Maybe not as relevant at this point in time, but auto transmission drain/fill and filter change in the late 1990s was $60 at the local Saturn dealership.

Re: Help me to ID this part please

Mark the tie rod where it meets the jam nut and compare the length of the old and new rod end, and you will be able to get the alignment fairly close so the tires don't squeal and scrub all the way...

Re: Lower Control Arm/Steering Knuckle

Depending on what part of the country you are in, rust belt or not, might be a good idea to hit the nuts inside the cradle with penetrating oil. The nuts are known to break off inside the cradle...

Re: Lower Control Arm/Steering Knuckle

A broken sway bar end looks like this, see how the end is popped out from the bar on the end of the bottom bar? The driver's side on my 95 SC2 was the side that popped out. These things can be hard...

Re: Lower Control Arm/Steering Knuckle

I had a mysterious clunk that finally traced to the lower control arm to engine cradle bolt. If the bolt has enough wear on it, it can't hold the tension and will move back and forth, producing the...

Re: Engine mounts affecting transmission?

What did you use for the upper mount? Non-OEM mounts are known to fail, so if you changed it last year, a cheap mount might be bad already.

There are three mounts on the passenger side of the...

Re: 1995 Saturn SC2 - What are these, what do they do, and do I need them?

Not sure what the first one is, but it looks like it could be connected to the electronics in the dash, or part of the HVAC system.

Re: timing chain tensioner bolt

Junkyard would be first preference.

If that is not an option, the bolt size is:
25mm x 8mm, 1.25 thread pitch, 10mm head of course.
The part of the bolt that the guide swivels on is 12mm...

Re: 2001 bumblebee!!!!! With 49 miles on it.

Thats how I got my fully loaded 5sp 95 SC2. Flew into MDW, took a taxi, drove it home. It didn't have 49 miles though, and it was't a Bumblebee, but I like my 95.
