Re: Did you buy your current Saturn new or used?

I bought my actual one in 2004 after my 1997 SC1 was totalled by a hail storm...what i could get from the insurance money was a 2001 SC1 used with 45K miles on it....now it has 155K miles.

Re: Switch from 5w30 to 10w30?

Remember why multi grade was made...people want to start and go in 5 seconds or less.

Re: No Start

When you switch off the car do you hear the fuel pump and fuel pump relay switch off after a second or so...if not could be the relay or the fuel pump.
That may explain why it gets going when...

Re: Low Mile Finds

Low miles but seem to have sat in the sun for very long with no protective waxing.

Re: New owner question - miss at idle, intermittent "pop" in exhaust

I have been using a fuel system cleaner on one full tank of gas ..before oil change (i have used gumout with PEA but i suspect other brands will work too)

That seems to reduce the rough idling.

Re: Low Mile Finds

So what does title status "rebuilt" means ? Rebuilt engine...or was it crashed and body redone ?

What does it mean for the supposedly 36K miles ?
